Relaxing and trendy Hotel - Good Location - Well Appointed Rooms – Great Owner
I felt very comfortable dealing with the owner and the communication was amazing. I liked the higher floor opposite from the bay/pool, as I’ve read other hotel reviews that rooms on the pool/bayside could get loud. While there was no balcony, I didn’t care since we spent so much time at pool or exploring the local area. Unit was very clean, queen bed very comfortable and I loved the very modern bathroom and shower. Small but very functional kitchenette with a microwave, small fridge, coffee maker and two burner stove top for simple cooking. Hotel food price is outrageous ($80 for eggs, OJ and coffee at breakfast – and that does not include blood mary’s or champagne!). DEFINITELY walk across the street to Whole Foods and stock up your kitchenette with drinks, snacks and food. I loved that the valet and wireless was included in the rental! Hotel décor is obviously unique, modern, trendy and in my opinion charming. Service was fantastic from the valet, check in, lobby and pool bar, etc. Hotel has a smaller boutique hotel feel, not a huge resort. The lobby bar area was comfortable, but not a huge party or club scene, which was perfect for us. The gym is modern with a decent selection of cardio and weight equipment. Can’t beat the view of the bay and skyline from the treadmills. The pool set up is very charming and picturesque with numerous seating areas, including a section of “beach” chairs in a huge sandbox. Loved the cabana “caves”. Great location. 10-15 minute walk to beach, Washington or Collins shopping, another 15-20 minute walk or 10 minute bike ride to Lincoln. Very short taxi ride to hundreds of great clubs and restaurants. LOVE the DecoBike system! There are self-service stations all over Miami Beach, including several around the Mondrian. Rent a bike and explore all over Miami Beach. I highly recommend downloading the DecoBike app to your phone. Tip- even though there are a ton of DecoBike stations, buy a bike lock. Much easier when you want to run in a store and don’t want to look for a station - just chain your bike in front.
Overall - Great weekend in a trendy, but low-key hotel in a very clean and well appointed unit from a very easy to work with owner.
