Mondrian South Beach Review
The Mondrian South Beach has infused life into the beach's lesser-known western perimeter and rises as a poster child of SoBe design glam—head to toe, the hotel is a living and functioning work of art, an ingenious vision of provocateur Marcel Wanders. The "wow" factor is ubiquitous throughout Wanders's eccentric vision of Sleeping Beauty's castle near the shores of South Beach. From jellyfish-shape chandeliers to baroque seaweed patterns on the walls to oversize furnishings of Honey, I Shrunk the Kids proportions, this contemporary castle has designers and trendsetters dropping by to see what all the fuss is about. Rooms are bright and airy, continuing Wanders's "under the sea" theme. The pool scene here is totally happening, packed with hot bodies and European stunners year-round. The West Avenue location affords picture-perfect sunsets, but it's a 10- to 15-minute trek to the beach. The hotel's Sunset Lounge is renowned for its mojitos.
SoBe's Brightest Star
The party never dies at The Mondrian South Beach, where the roving models keep Miami's wild heyday very much in the present. The lobby, lounges, pool, and hotel-room patios constantly buzz with hive-like activity in this see-and-be-seen hotspot with outlandish design elements that include disco ball mirrored walls and mermaid paintings scattered throughout the hotel. In true nightlife fashion, the Mondrian's oversized crash pads quickly change personality with the full spectrum of mood lighting, reflecting off bands of sunset-colored glass pieces and the floor to ceiling glass windows overlooking Biscayne Bay.
