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
- Though on the water, the hotel does not have direct beach access, but it’s only a 15-minute walk to Ocean Drive and SoBe’s most popular beaches
- The daily resort fee includes WiFi, a free welcome drink at Sunset Lounge, poolside amenities, and use of the fitness center
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
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.
How to Get There
Really enjoyed this hotel. On the bayside, it’s a bit quieter than beachfront but the pool is great. Perfect location for the craziness of memorial weekend. Stayed in a bay view suite with a kitchenette. Loads of space and nice balcony. Walking distance from ocean drive, south beach, bars and restaurants. Well equipped small gym.
Reception staff were great.
Very few negatives, we were promised yoga classes which were either cancelled or changed time without warning. It would have been better if they were daily not once weekly. Also, one of the days the cleaner dumped used chewing gum under the bed - disgusting! But not enough to ruin the trip.
It was a great experience , will definitely go back .Rooms where huge , pool very fun just a few minutes from the beach , great location near the shops restaurants ,Walgreens and whole foods .

Stay at Mondrian South Beach was nice. Great birthday weekend. Richard Alex and Jay were great. Definitely will be back in December can’t wait to see you soon🙌🎉🔥💫😍 ☺️. Even the manager at the front desk - didn’t get his name sorry wish I did 😐 but he even had a birthday cake sent to my room with a bday card. Thank you ☺️
Thanks for a wonderful stay. I strongly suggest this hotel. The service was wonderful. The staff was great from valet to front desk. The hotel is very clean and well kept. One of the better hotels in south beach for sure. Thanks Jenny for being such a professional. Keep up the good work Mondrian.
I stayed at this hotel in May 2017. I visited it again in May 2018 because we enjoyed it so much the first time. It was a superb stay on both occasions. Richard M. and the rest of the staff went out of their way to ensure our visits went well. I cannot begin to express how good you feel when you arrive at the hotel. The gentlemen that are there to assist when you exit your transportation, the reception desk personnel, concierge, and others are the best! In addition, we really enjoyed the bay view and pool. Outside Bar personnel are available to service you as you lounge and enjoy the view. The weekend breakfast menu is also awesome! We arrived in Miami on early flight. The hotel was nice enough to allow us to occupy our room 5 hours ahead of the expected check in time. We are looking forward to my next Miami visit!
