Mondrian Hotel in Los Angeles

At the Mondrian a splattering of beautiful designed furniture, creating the perfect diorama for the good looking patrons that visit the hotel. The rooms are ample and comfortable, if a bit cool in atmosphere. Pluses for hidden plasmas and the expansive balconies. If you stay here, ask for a balcony room looking over the pool & city.
