Mondrian Soho Review
Snazzy style and a chic SoHo vibe make the Mondrian a winner for anyone looking for a real downtown New York experience. The most basic rooms are small, but with the blue and white color scheme, mirrored surfaces, and floor-to-ceiling windows, the design helps overcome space concerns. Little touches help, like outlets in the bedside tables, and an iPad in each room that can be used to control the temperature, order food, or surf the Internet. Downstairs, the public spaces are among the nicest in the neighborhood, with a beautiful arched passageway lined with ivy and sparkling lights serving as the entrance, a pebbled garden with a swing to sit in, and a bright lobby with curvy, cushy blue velvet chairs.
Mondrian's Work of Art
Sure, the hotel takes inspiration from a Cocteau film La Belle et La Bete but all you really need to know is that this newest property from the Morgans Hotel Group packs a hefty design wallop into not very much space. Basic rooms are masterpieces of optical illusion, from floor-to-ceiling windows, mirrored surfaces, and a stark white and blue color scheme that gives the hotel a Soho-by-way-of-Nice feel. Temperatures are controlled via in-room iPads, while down in the lobby, the vibe is something like a space age tea parlor, with oversized curving wing chairs and cozy booths.
