Mondrian South Beach
What We Love
- The only hotel in South Beach that faces west, with prime views at sunset
- The automated gift shop, Semi Automatic, could be from The Jetsons, with gifts up to $5,000 at the touch of a button
- The adjustable colors and levels of lighting in the guestrooms
- The La Savina restaurant dishes up Mediterranean fare and fresh seafood on an open-air patio overlooking the bay
What To Know

- The daily resort fee includes WiFi, a free welcome drink at Sunset Lounge, poolside amenities, and use of the fitness center
- Handicap Accessible

Dutch provocateur Marcel Wanders designed Mondrian as a surrealist homage to Sleeping Beauty’s castle. Three enormous chandeliers sway over the porte cochere, offering perfect paparazzi lighting for A-list guests, while the snow-white lobby feels like a dream playground with its floating black laser-cut staircase, lacquered columns that feel like Brobdingnagian chair legs, and chandeliers encased in oversize brass bells. Guest rooms are modern and eccentric, with kaleidoscopic black and white wallpaper, blue and white Delft tiles portraying old-school Florida scenes, and funky graphic rugs. A meal at the grand 20-foot table at the hotel’s American brasserie feels a bit like attending Alice in Wonderland’s tea party (that is, if the Mad Hatter served branzino with charred lemon and Tuscan kale). Or, head to La Savina for Mediterranean cuisine and fresh seafood on an open-air patio overlooking the bay. The pool is equally magical, with a labyrinthine garden, Queen of Hearts–worthy red thrones and towering hedges that curve into cabanas. It’s the best place in Miami to catch the sunset, and you can show up via boat thanks to the hotel’s marina.
In the Area
Sign up for an Art Deco walking tour with the Miami Design Preservation League, or explore the city’s edgier side with a street art tour. All the hip arty types are slumming it at the Broken Shaker bar, in the Freehand hostel. Grab a tiki-inspired drink by the fountain before heading out for a rib-sticking dinner of fried chicken and biscuits at Yardbird, or haute seafood at the buzzy Juvia, a South Beach “it” table perched atop the Herzog and de Meuron–designed 1111 Lincoln Road. SoBe’s Frank Gehry–designed New World Center makes high culture hip with a theater that transforms into a nightclub-style venue mixing electronica and classical music.

The food and bar are great, rooms are beautiful, ambiance by the pool is amazing. Very very classy hotel.
This review is for the Mondrian Cafe only. I was staying nearby and stopped by for breakfast one day. Lovely outdoor seating area with great views of the water and skyline. Really friendly and professional staff. I had the salmon benedict and it was delicious. Reasonably priced. Would highly recommend eating here!
