“Loved everthing except..”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 4, 2012

My husband and I stayed here for a quick weekend getaway. The hotel is impressive when you drive up and so is the lobby. The staff at the front desk were very nice. They allowed us to check in really early because of the early flight we arrived on. We loved everything about the room except for the beds! The bed was extremely uncomfortable. I hate to say that because we loved everything else about this hotel. I'd recommend this hotel if you aren't picky about beds like we are. Aside from that, everything and everyone else was great! The location is great as well. We had a few planned activities and everything was a very short drive away and valet was more than happy to give directions.

I consider the Mondrain more of a 4 star hotel, however you are clearly paying 5 star prices across the board. Location is a plus or a minus depending on your preferences. Bay views are gorgeous, as well as the sun setting at the very nice pool unblocked, this was a bonus. The hotel is a bit on the small side, but interior design and architecture are 1st class.We stayed 3 nights.

The disappointments were.
1.Our room wasn't ready upon arrival,mind you they have a 3pm check in as it is. We waited until 345 to check in.
2.We properly requested a late checkout, no problem, mind you its off-season and midweek, plus we stayed at a premium suite. Shortly before 3pm we also called front desk to notify them that we would be downstairs in less than 10 minutes, they noted it and all was fine.( most hotels these days allow you to check out on your tv, not here).
Upon reviewing my bill, which I had asked to be emailed to me, I was charges a late checkout fee of $250, plus taxes! I easily had this removed after making a call to the hotel, the person who took my call also indicated that she sees 2 notes that confirmed my interaction with front desk notifying them.
So my question is this. Why would you insult a paying customers intelligence, isnt repeat business and reviews enough reason for a hotel to go over and above for its customer?

I travel a lot. I recnetly spent one night at the Mondrian and was thrilled by the engaged and friendly staff. Beggining at check-in a wonderful lady set the tone. The manager, Jose Noriega even came out to greet me and others checking in. I had a drink at the bar and spent 30 minutes talking with a very friendly and engaging bar-tender. My room was spotless and I certainly enjoyed the view of downt-town Miami. Experiences are memorable when people are and the staff at the Mondrian certainly was. Great job!

Mondrian South Beach is a hidden gem.Located on Biscayne Bay and a 10 minute walk from Lincoln Road and 20 minutes from the beach, I loved the location. This is the perfect hotel for travelers who want to get away from the congestion of Ocean Drive/Collins Ave hotels... The staff are authentic & friendly, the service is genuine & professional... The pool, fitness and spa are especially nice.... Great sunset views! My room overlooked the pool, bay with spectacular views of the downtown Miami skyline.Very attractive crowd, and nestled in an upscale residential area. Whole Foods a few minutes away.... I'll definitely be back!!!!

We stayed for seven nights in a two BR residence rented through Jet Luxury. Great space, awesome views over the pool and water, decent service and luxe surroundings with just about all the hotel had to offer. Asia de Cuba menu was a bit limiting for us as vegetarians traveling with two teenagers, but Whole Foods is across the street, as well as a few good restaurants within walking distance. And Lincoln Road is a five minute drive. Pool service is terrific and there is a Hot scene poolside on Sundays!

We have lost count of the amount of times we have stayed. What I can tell you is we have been visiting every year since it opened, sometimes more than once a year. We always opt for a bay view balcony suite as the view over downtown Miami is our favorite view. Our stay is always made extra special as being a repeat guest is acknowledged by the hotel and they really do go out of there way for you. The star of the show is David Arth who manages the pool area. Every hotel really does need a David, and whilst I may say this every visit I really really mean it. He is divine and really goes out of his way to ensure everyone has a fantastic experience around the pool. His star service is amazing and we know whenever we are staying at the hotel/round the pool we receive fantastic faultless treatment. Bad customer service can certainly stop you re-visiting a hotel and David does definitely have to take credit for the fact we keep returning year after year. I should add that all other staff are fantastic, David is just in a league of his own :-)

Room Tip: bay view balcony suite or any room overlooking the bay is the way forward.

Mondrian is ideal for a few days stay. Beautifull roms, bay view pool, great restaurant and perfect service. A few minutes walk to the South Beach/Ocean Drive. More suited for couples than families with children.

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
