Originally built as an apartment complex in the 1950’s The Mondrian is now part of the Morgan’s hotel group (inc. the Hudson, Morgans, Royalton, Delano….).  Originally designed  by Philip Stark in 1984, the building facade was then painted in color blocks like a Piet Mondrian canvas.  A further  redesign by Benjamin Noriega Ortiz from BNO Design brings the hotel into its present state.  The lobby and Lounge areas on the ground floor are softly touched  with color changing LED Lights and a splattering of beautiful designed furniture, creating the perfect diorama for the good looking patrons that visit the hotel.

The pool area is the star of the show, surrounded by day beds, giant ottomans and tanned bodies.  In the evenings it is transformed into an attractive scene with some simple, yet effective furniture moves.  The restaurant is surrounded by fantasy, with giant planters and fairly lights in the surrounding trees.

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.

The staff was attractive and amiable for the most part.  The exception being the Night Bouncer at the pool lounge.  He was unnecessary, over-forceful and turned what should have been a glamourous setting into a something akin to a popular nightclub.
