LOS ANGELES, July 12, 2017 (hospitalitybusinessnews.com) — Anchoring the extensive revitalization of Los Angeles’ famed Hollywood neighborhood, Dream Hollywood officially opens today, Wednesday, July 12, 2017. Bringing together unrivaled partners in dining, nightlife, wellness and more, Dream Hotels’ marquee location creates a magnetic social hub for visitors and Angelenos alike.
“We could not be more excited to welcome our guests and the community to Dream Hollywood,” said Jay Stein, Chief Executive Officer, Dream Hotel Group. “Dream Hollywood is truly unlike anything this city has ever seen, setting a new standard for hospitality and becoming a hotbed for creativity, culture and entertainment.”
Located on the buzzing corner of Selma Avenue and N.

The building’s unique façade is designed by LA-based Killefer Flammang Architects. The hotel features 178 guest rooms and suites, including an 1,800-square-foot Guest House suite with private screening room and 360-degree views, a stunning indoor-outdoor double-height lobby with retractable Nana Walls; a sweeping 11,000 sq. ft. rooftop pool, restaurant and lounge with unforgettable views of the Hollywood Hills and Los Angeles Skyline; a 1,000 sq. ft. gym and wellness program designed by celebrity trainer Gunnar Peterson; and an activated pedestrian alleyway that serves as a public gathering space linking the hotel to its adjacent dining and nightlife offerings.
“Having been immersed in not only this hotel opening, but also the local community, I’m incredibly proud to introduce Dream Hollywood,” said Ayo Akinsete, General Manager, Dream Hollywood. “Being able to inject new life and excitement into Hollywood through this hotel, and watching the area continuing to grow, adds a unique and special energy to the already outstanding guest experience Dream Hollywood has cultivated.”

Showcasing Peterson’s dynamic approach to fitness, the gym features state-of-the-art weight and aerobic equipment, Interactive Fitness bikes, Avanti Cardiogym and more. Peterson will personally train and select a group of elite trainers to be available to guests upon request, offering a personal wellness routine catered to individual needs and designed to provide the celebrity training experience. In addition, Dream Hollywood’s rooftop will host a curriculum of innovative group workouts.
