First class, rooms great, service great, drinks by pool at sunset unreal. Bit pricey but worth every penny. Good location and look out for happy hour in main bar for half price food and drinks. They have a sister hotel in Miami too with a private beach you can use.

Let me tell you -- being from NYC -- writing a review is not my thing but I need to write this review for David .... for he is the Man... not only is he just the nicest guy - but he makes you feel like he just loves his job ! He is perhaps the reason why my wife & I would go back to The Mondrian... he sets the tone for this hotel and it is a pretty good reason to keep going back !

READ THIS IF YOU WANT THE TRUTH ABOUT THIS HOTEL. I had to write this review after reading some of the outrageous complaints of other guests. It's mind boggling to read some of the complaints about this hotel. My wife and I are both in our thirties and very well off, but some of these reviewers must have personal rear end cleaners living at their homes with them. Sorry, I didn't get that far in life yet!
Anyway, this hotel is gorgeous! The decor is beautiful. Look at it online. If you don't like it, don't book here. Pretty simple. All pics are available for the whole world to see. Yes, its a little different from the norm of most hotels, but isn't that a form of art! Different doesn't mean bad. If you're worried about the girl on the wall then you should take a deep breathe, relax and realize your on vacation! You're in a safe place, it's not that big of a deal. This hotel was very clean and felt very inviting as soon as we walked in. We arrived early and knew that are rooms were not going to be ready, so guess what..... we went to the pool and relaxed! Have a drink or two. You're at a high end hotel! If you are complaining about the price of anything here then you should have budgeted more money for this type of vacation. You're not staying at a Best Western folks! If you can't afford it, then stay at another hotel until one day you are able to enjoy this lifestyle. My wife and I weren't always able to stay at high end hotels such as the Mondrian. Work smarter, you'll get there. You're fault, not the Mondrian Hotel or its staff. Rooms were ready on time and they called us to let us know. The rooms were really nice! We have stayed in many five star resorts/hotels around the world, this was up to par! Comfortable beds, nice large clean bathrooms, plenty of towels, stocked mini fridge, kitchenette, spectacular view and an A/C that worked incredible. Im gonna touch a little on the grounds and then have to tell you about the awesome staff!! Pool area was awesome. Best pool we have been at in a long time. Clean, and perfect temp. Grounds were super clean as were bathrooms. Bar area served really good drinks and excellent food. View is amazing. Grab a drink sit back and enjoy! STAFF-- Some of the most accommodating and polite people I have ever met. Truly there to serve you and they enjoy doing it. Front desk was on point! Tony at the front door is the man! I would go back just to hang out with "T" in Miami. Smiles, friendly and makes you feel like family. Same can be said for Axel as well. Won't even let you carry your bags. They got it all covered. Ashley Ashley Ashley! She was incredible. Talk about on point poolside service. We watched her put up with some pretty rude guests and she handled it perfectly. Always making sure we were ok. Never had to look for her or wait when we wanted something. What a sweetheart. Ask for Ashley when you get to the pool and sit in her section. Best service!
David, your pool concierge. This guy is the captain of the ship. Loves his job and it shows. Made sure we were constantly attended to and completely happy. Heard other guests as well constantly praising him. Great guy that we are looking forward to seeing again on our next visit. My wife and I would love to buy a unit here at the Mondrian and are looking into it. One mile straight ahead to ocean ave South Beach, right down 11th. Best of both worlds. Beautiful bay and beautiful beach just minutes away. So in conclusion, this hotel is a five star establishment with a 10 star staff. If you're of the elite super picky crowd, then build your own house down in Miami exactly how you want it. Many millionaires and billionaires have stayed here without any complaints. We will be back soon and we hope you will enjoy your time at the Mondrian as much as we did.
Best,
Michael and Laura Brenner

Room Tip: Studio perfect for couples. Splurge and get bay view. Its gorgeous. Saw two bedroom corner units. T...

What's not to like about this hotel...we stayed here for two nights on our honeymoon, came via New York and this was a stop off before cruising. excellent service especially David who works at the pool, staff very attentive. The hotel itself is fantastic, we'll decorated to an extremely high standard and rooms massive. views from the pool are best ever, prob the nicest hotel I have stayed in...couldn't fault it :-)

We loved our stay at the Mondrian. When we booked we were aware that it was not on the same side as the beach but it was only a 10 minute walk through safe streets.

Our room was amazing, very spacious and the bed was the comfiest bed I've ever slept on, we still talk about it! On arrival we upgraded to a sea view room, after reading many reviews on here. We were told by Ariel at the from desk that she could do that for us for '100 bucks', we were staying for 4 nights and thought '$25 extra night, thats pretty good!'. I don't know if i was being extremely naive thinking this but the way it had been worded led us to believe that we would be charged $100 extra. When we left we were charged...yep, you guessed it, an extra $400!! We were leaving (in a rush) very early in the morning so did not check our bill and the money was taken straight off of the credit card we had left on checking in. We later emailed the hotel explaining what had happened, only to never receive an email back!

The views over the water to downtown Miami are amazing, everything is spotless and staff were always lovely.

Apart from that misunderstanding I have to say we had the best time in Miami, and chilling out at the amazing pool at the Mondrian made it even better. Watch out though, you can't even take your own towel down to the pool, someone has to do that for you...and yes, they do want a tip for it.

Room Tip: Sea view rooms are lovely but not worth an extra $100 a night. Not a real 'sea' view.

THis is a beautiful hotel facing the bay but only a 7 block walk to the beach. The hotel is very modern and trendy and every room has a gorgeous view of either the Bay and downtown Miami or Miami Beach and the ocean. It has a beautiful pool right on the bay that really becomes a scene in the afternoon. Not too crowded but a lot of young people having a good time. I did not find it bothersome as it does in some hotels along the ocean. THe hotel staff is wonderful and can't do enough to help. I know some will hate that it is not on the ocean but I found this a real plus. The ocean area is so congested and noisy all afternoon and evening and this hotel was still beautiful but much calmer. I would not want to be anywhere near the south beach ocean if you want some peace. The ocean is close enough to walk to and the hotel is a nice respite just a little way away. Happy hour is a bargain. The food is expensive and the portions were small but very tasty.

Room Tip: facing the bay is beautiful but probably more expensive. I loved the ocean view from the other side.

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
