“Huge rooms, nice balcony... but too cool for moi.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 6, 2013

OK, so I'm way out of the target demographic of this very hip hotel. It wasn't my choice, but my client's. But I was pleasantly surprised by the huge living room and a separate bedroom. The walls must be thin, and the floors have no carpets, so noise carries far.

The restaurant doesn't open until 7 pm, so don't expect an "early bird" specials. But they have Bar Bites while the DJ warms up Friday evening, 6 pm until ?? Breakfast buffet was nice but service was slow. Very pretty patio, pools and cabanas facing the bay with a great view of downtown Miami.

Room Tip: Ask for a suite with a balcony on a high floor facing the Bay

3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 3, 2013

The hotel entrance is cool. All-white, modern, low light.

The staff was always very nice, from the front service to the valet.

The room is ok. We stayed in a 1-bedroom apartment, with a living room, and partial view to the bay. They are big, with a small kitchen and table, sofa bed, but not as modern as the lobby.

BIG ISSUE, in my opinion. The hotel has only one restaurant, and even worse, the options from the room service are ridiculous. 1 burger, 1 fish, 1 chicken, 1 meat, and some random appetizers like guacamole. Unacceptable for a hotel like this.

The location is OK. You are not far from the South Beach hot spots, but you have to walk or drive at least 8 to 10 blocks to some party-scene, stores, etc...

In a few word, the biggest positive aspect is definitely the staff. The negative one is the room service.

Room Tip: If you are a couple, definitely stay in a room with a BAY VIEW. If you are in family, and need more...

I have very mixed feelings about this property. I love the location in South Beach, away from the bustle but still close to everything. It feels more "neighborhood" on this side of South Beach. The hotel is fine. Affected design (already feeling oddly dated) and the rooms are really large...arguably too large. My biggest pet peeve was a bathroom that seemed fine, but in practice was just unusable. There was no counter space, the shower got water everywhere and the lighting was poor. Runner up: the elevators were glacial and constantly packed. In general, though the property is relatively new, the hotel is showing its age. The staff was agreeable, though the front desk always seemed mobbed (maybe because there were just two employees at all times, in peak season, on a weekend). All in all, not a bad choice...but there are better choices in South Beach. We had a cockroach in our room, but given this is Florida, I will give a pass.

There are many great features in this hotel but a few basic additions that could move it to a 5 star. The rooms are spacious and bed very comfortable. Great rest every night. Location fairly central to Lincoln Rd and the Ocean. Both great places to go daily..about 20 min walk each way. Phone did not work in th room; pool was crowded and drinks at pool ridiculously overpriced. Staff very friendly. Room very clean. Kitchen could be better equipped with a few more dishes and pots and pans. We like to eat breakfast in room and although there is a small stove, youcpuldn'tfook anything as there wasn't a pan in the room. Not sure we would stay again.

My sister and I just came back from the Mondrian and we had a great trip! Everyone was so helpful and so nice! When we checked in we got upgraded for free and when we got back to our room after the first day we had a bottle of champagne from Rosa who checked us in who is awesome! Our suite was beautiful so much room! Very clean! Great view! We were always greeted by pool, front door, the concierge we always felt special. There is a whole foods around the corner and a great cafe Taste Bakery with yummy muffins and a ton of healthy breakfast options. Nice walk to Lincoln Rd, Collins, and Ocean. If you're not a walker than you might not find this a "nice" walk. We also got a massage done in their spa which was awesome! My only complaint was our room wasn't cleaned until after 4 pm everyday but when we called for clean towels they were efficient and prompt. It might have been because our room was at the end of the hallway not sure.

Very nice location, just a few minute walk to Whole Food Market, CVS, and Star Bucks; about 15-20min walk to Lincoln. Room is quite spacious, but was a little disappointed that they did not have king size bed for the size of the room. Friendly staff. The only negative comment is the expensive internet fee, the charges are ridiculous. I would probably pay a bit more and stay at another hotel with free internet.

Room Tip: Request higher floor as the bar could be very noisy on weekend.

Flew in to MIA.... took a cab to the property... opened my wifes door pulled out our luggage and walked it into the hotel.... No greating of the day or help from the staff.... A smile would have been very nice but, no joy there.... front desk is a little more helpful..... Went up to my suite and it reminded me of a filthy model apartment..... I don't know if the stain on the carpet was urine or vomit.... is the dust on the country wooden furniture part of the ambiance? Master bed had a queen and guest had a King? Unfortunately we are all grown and the girls stand 6'2, I'm 6'3 and my brother is 6'5...... We have to get out of this place ASAP they can keep the money and what ever else awaits us..... for the record I only write positive reviews... however this place is abominable at best and deplorable at worst..... YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED.......

Official Description (provided by the hotel):
Located on newly-fashionable West Avenue, Mondrian is a quiet enclave just minutes from the bustling center of South Beach, offering spectacular views of the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami. The visionary style of designer Marcel Wanders is apparent from the moment you pull into the porte-cochere: guests walk through a grand entryway appointed with custom-designed furniture, lighting and accent pieces, evoking Wanders' design homage of "Sleeping Beauty's Castle." Upon entering the soaring lobby, the floor-to-ceiling windows offer stunning views of Biscayne Bay. Immediately the eye is drawn to the masterpiece of the room–an iconic, signature "floating staircase." Black and gold patterned furnishings and oversized brass bell shaped lights add a touch of whimsy and welcome guests to sit and socialize or enjoy the view. ... more   less
