We went to the Mondrian for a long weekend. An earlier business trip showed it had promise as a spot for a quiet getaway - that was right. The staff is all about service from the staff that open your car doors, through the front desk, the concierge and even the staff that find seats and serve you poolside. Rooms are comfortable with excellent and updated furnishings. The food is very good and the pool is an awesome place for people watching. The combination of regular guests plus the model agency clients [there is an agency office at the hotel] guarantees you the chance to watch the young and the beautiful - and their predicatable antics - as you sip your drink. The hotel is convenient to all South Beach attractions, and even offers a Wholefodds store just a 2 minute walk away.
