Tucked into the Hollywood Hills near downtown Los Angeles, Dream Hollywood channels mid-century vibes in its 178 sophisticated guest rooms, with high-tech features like Smart TVs, iPads, and contactless concierge service. Head to the retractable rooftop bar and The Highlight Room lounge for some of the best views of Los Angeles, the Hollywood Sign, and Griffith Observatory.

Not into the party scene? Enjoy a night in with your favorite edibles. While there’s no smoking allowed in the glamourous rooms, you can unwrap an infused brownie and enjoy a body high curled up in your plush bed. More of a vaper? Find PAX Labs vaporizers available for purchase in your hotel room.

When you get the munchies, use the bedside tablet to order whatever you’re craving on Uber Eats. Since you can’t drive high, take the hotel’s free Lincoln Continental and Lincoln Navigator car service to go out in Los Angeles.
