Mondrian South Beach
Set on the stunning waterfront of Biscayne Bay, Mondrian South Beach captures all the heat, intensity, energy and vibe of the original Mondrian in Los Angeles. Revolutionary Dutch designer Marcel Wanders’ whimsical and visionary style for the hotel is an homage to “Sleeping Beauty’s Castle.” In the soaring lobby, where the scene is about “see-and-be-seen”, floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of the Bay, while the eye is drawn to the masterpiece of the room–an iconic, signature “floating staircase.”
