“Forget it.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2005

This hotel is clearly riding a little too hard on it's name. The bed in our room was hard and lumpy and uncomfortable, (I've slept better at a Sheraton). The bathroom hadn't been updated since the eighties, and the paint job looked like it had been done by nine year-old. Most of the staff were great, but some were unbelievably rude. The poor valet guys are overwhelmed 24 hours a day. The lobby and pool area are ok, but not nearly as good as the other Schrager hotels. There are much better options than this in L.A. The Chateau Marmont comes immediately to mind.

This hotel is unbelievably pretentious. The all-white rooms made us feel like we were in an operating room. The staff are somewhat rude.
If you are going to spend the money stay down the block atthe Chateau Marmont- much more relaxed, laid back, with an old-world feel to it.
(The Sky Bar and Asia de Cuba are nice, however, but also quite snooty- and we are young people in the business, so I can't even imagine how they would treat overweight midwesterners here)

Want a great party? Found it! Want a quiet night's sleep? Ummm, maybe. This is a hip, elegant hotel with sleek decor, a great outdoor bar, a pool where every woman seems to be reading a script and every guy is adjusting his new sunglasses. It's a total designer setting that can boast LA's best dressed staff and the world's fastest valet parking. We've stayed here twice, only had to request a room change once, and will stay again. Whoever you are, they make you feel as cool as the place looks. And that's very cool.

Mondrian always had a rep for terrible service but it seemed like for a while they had cleaned up their act. Well it is right back to the horrible, rude staff. They got the name wrong on my room by switching the first and last names so all my visitors, clients, or anyone looking for me at the hotel were refused entry or told I was not a registered guest. When 2 clients finally did meet me at the bar, the waitress was such a ***** that I could not believe I was paying for this place. She is definitely not a person cut out for the service industry. If you want West Hollywood without the rude service and attitude - try one of the many hotels off the strip like Chamberlain, Le Montrose or Bel Age.
