“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 11, 2013

I couldn't fault this hotel. For the price ($330 p/n for a suite booked on Wotif) the location, decor, and staff were great and so very helpful. The decor is a bit quirky, a bit of Alice in Wonderland meets Scandinavian retro - loved it!
The breakfast was magnificent, I wanted the recipe for everything especially their homemade granola.
We were able to walk to a lot of the shopping and sightseeing spots from this well placed hotel. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: It's a party hotel so choose a room that's not above the glam Sky bar

That's what makes Mondrian LA standout from all other hotels around in West Hollywood, is our quirky decor. We want guest to feel like they enter a fantasy world away from the mayhem we call Hollywood :). Glad you enjoyed Asia de Cuba.... OMG YES.... the homemade granola is a 10 out of 10. My favorite too. Thanks for the great comment!

Mondrian LA was exceptional. Upon arrival, we were greeted by valet parking staff who were competent and informative. Check in was seamless, and the room was ready for us before we arrived. I was highly impressed with the Mondrian staff, as they all made us feel welcome and looked for opportunities to improve our experience during our stay. The view from our room was very nice, as we were able to see the Beverly Center to our left, the pool and Skybar below, and all the way to the Pacific Ocean in the distance. Our room was on the top floor, which I enjoyed. The room was also clean, and the bed was extremely comfortable. If you're looking for a swanky, hip hotel in West Hollywood, I would highly recommend the Mondrian.

One of my choice hotels in LA, has a great pool-side bar, well-priced and fun rooms, cool location and great service. The only downside is that having coffee and (lovely) fruit and pastries in the morning at Asia de Cuba could cost half the daily room rate...

Gotta love California weather, feels like summer in March! Glad you got to enjoy the pool and Skybar during your stay. Hope you where able to try our amazing mojito. Nothing like a refreshing mojito to wash down the amazing food at Asia de Cuba. Glad your stay was good and thanks for the comment.

This hotel is fantastic, it is really imaginitive with it's decor and a real treat to stay at. The staff are all genuinely nice and super helpful, anything we asked they sorted out for us, they were all really pleasant and seemed to enjoy working there which is a great reflection on the company.

The hotel is set out really clearly so no getting lost and most of the facilities in the room are great. The rooms feature really comfortable beds (Kingsize), Sofas that are big enough to become a bed, i-pod docking station/radio, huge TV in a really cute Alice in Wonderland styled swivelling mirror, lovely bathroom with good quality products in them. The mini bar is very well stocked, there is something for everyone...... Apart from a distinct lack of a kettle in the room. As a Brit this didn't sit well!! However the 1 saving grace was that they do provide complimentary coffee in the cafe downstairs.

If you want to stay with the stars head for this hotel, it's modern, funky and always has groups of teenage girls outside waiting for the latest celeb who is on the guest list!

Beware prices in the Skybar are $14 per cocktail, it is the place to be seen though so have some fun there. The pool in the Skybar is one for posing in or cooling off whilst sunbathing rather than swimming olympic lengths in.

There is no obvious sign out the front but head along the strip and look out for the absolutely huge mahogany doors, they are an art installation in the front of the driveway! Oh and of course the groupies awaiting the next photo opportunity!

"We are accountable to those we serve and do so with integrity and sophistication", this line is taken straight from our hotel company's mission statement. We love taking care of our guest. Philippe Starck was the original designer of our hotel property, his vision (which you nailed it on the head) was a Alice in Wonderland theme with a twist or course. Next time you visit our property come down to the concierge desk, where we can solve your tea fix :). There is nothing we can't solve at the Mondrian LA. Glad you had a great stay and thanks for the comment.

Great hotel in a good location on Sunset Boulevard. It's close to all the great bars and restaurants. Walking distance to the Viper Room and Roxy (not that anyone actually walks anywhere in LA). It has amazing views of the city. The pool is small but it's more of a place to just hang out on a couch and drink. The hotel had a good vibe, it's a bit of a party place. Wouldn't recommend it to people with kids.
The room was somewhat small but the bathroom was very spacious and had all the amenities you need... well, the room could use a coffee maker. There were two flat screen tvs in the room including one in a mirror. The room had modern deco and was very clean. The interior design is a bit surreal but again adds to the overall feel of the place.
The hotel restaurants were good, the service was excellent.
Highly recommend for an LA experience.

Sounds like you had a great time over here at Mondrian LA. Glad to hear you tried out Asia De Cuba. By far one of my favorite restaurants in LA.... the calamari salad is to die for. Especially when you grab a seat outside in our newly renovated Arbor and just enjoy the amazing view of Hollywood. The next time you are here come down to the new lobby bar and enjoy a cup of Joe on us. Thanks for the great comment!

Great location, updated hotel.....cool pool/bar. Convenient to all the fun that LA has in store! Only disappointment was calling and asking for 2 beds & being told that it was 1st come first serve, then being made to pay $30 per night extra.

Glad you got to enjoy our new updated pool and bar! It is cool; right? Hope you were able to partake in dinner at Asia De Cuba...perhaps enjoying the Butterfish or Short Ribs? Maybe the Cuban Chicken....all amazing! Did you check out our new Lobby Lounge Bar? Great alternative to our ultra hip Skybar...if your mood so desires. Thanks for the nice comments and so happy you had a great visit, Thank you.

Drove past it at first as didn't see the address.
Small reception area with one shop and bar area, resteraunt and large outdoor area with lots of places to sit. Pool quite small.
White trendy decor makes it all very clean and bright. Lovely in the evening all candle lit.
Rooms not huge but very nice decor.
Food is Cuban influenced and is lovely. Beautifully served and very nice quality.
Were lucky enough to see a few famous faces here. No names!!!!!
Found the corridors very dark and the pavements outside the hotel on a hill so could be difficult to walk for some .
Has a lovely trendy vibe. Would definitley come back.

Looks like you had a well rounded stay with us recently. Got to enjoy all the hot spots in the hotel! Not sure if you were able to experience our new Lobby Bar or not but it is a great indoor option. We really appreciate your nice comments and hope to have you back with us again very soon.
