Dream Hollywood Embraces Changing Guest Preferences and Implements Contactless Check-In

Vaughn Davis, General Manager at Dream Hollywood, implemented Contactless Check-In to give guests the hospitality experience they want

Dream Hollywood is a luxury 178 room hotel, which boasts six food and beverage outlets, and is nestled in the iconic Hollywood neighborhood of Los Angeles.

Vaughn Davis was brought in as the GM at Dream Hollywood after serving in leadership positions at luxury New York hotels, where he had been responsible for improving guest satisfaction scores. As he joined the team at Dream Hollywood, he was faced with a challenge: how to improve the guest experience and raise guest satisfaction scores, while driving additional revenue for the property.

Vaughn saw the trend that guests were beginning to expect self-service technology when visiting hotels. He believed that implementing a Contactless Check-In solution would improve guest satisfaction, drive additional revenue for the property, and help streamline operations.

Vaughn evaluated Contactless Check-In options with his IT team and selected Canary Technologies.

“The ease of use, coupled with the seamless integration with our property management system (OPERA) made it a no-brainer.”

Working with Canary’s implementation team, Vaughn was able to get the solution up and running within days.

The staff at Dream Hollywood immediately saw the impact of Contactless Check-In: it decreased front desk administrative work and improved guest satisfaction scores. In fact, guests who checked in with Canary rated the process an average of 4.92 stars.

Overall, Dream Hollywood has seen the following changes since implementing Canary’s Contactless Check-In:

- Guests now have more information about their stay before they arrive, and there are no more lines in the lobby, which has improved guest satisfaction scores.

- The property’s front desk staff has been spending less time handling the administrative work of checking guests in, leaving them more time to provide an exceptional guest experience.

- The property has been able to offer upsells and add-ons that guests can purchase through the Canary interface, which has meant that the investment in Canary’s Contactless Check-In has quickly paid for itself.


For Vaughn, it’s about always looking for ways to improve the guest experience, and making sure his property has a competitive advantage. Canary’s Contactless Check-In has allowed him to achieve those goals, while also improving his property’s bottom line.
