Everyone has a theory of packing — whether it is you can pack the same amount of clothes for three weeks as for three days, or all you need to focus on is underwear and a toothbrush. Perhaps you pack two weeks ahead of time, or 20 minutes. Whatever your theory for packing is, was or will be, Packpoint will help.

Available through iTunes and Google Play, this app will think of the item you would otherwise forget. It works by collecting some basic information about your trip, such as where you are going, when and for how long. Once they have this information, you will be guided through your packing process. Packpoint will check the weather so you know how to dress and what sorts of accessories to bring. You can also share the types of activities in which you be participate and the app will then recommend categories of articles you might need.

You can then add specific items to that list. If you are traveling with friends, you can share packing lists. This is especially handy if you are sharing the packing of specialty items and need to check with people to make sure everything for that special camping trip is taken care of.

Dream Hollywood Hotel

The urban chic hotel is the perfect medium between Hollywood hip and corporate cool. Dream Hollywood welcomes you upon arrival with an open glass entryway, showcasing a structured, organically lush lobby atmosphere filled with modern art and a lobby lounge bar that transforms for a morning cup of coffee or a post-work cocktail. Upon check-in with the extremely helpful and courteous staff, I made my way to the elevators and up to my room, enjoying the artwork on the way.
