Mondrian Los Angeles is an international travel destination and local oasis nestled in the heart of West Hollywood’s iconic Sunset Strip. Since opening its doors in 1996, the legendary Mondrian Los Angeles now boasts an audacious $19-million reimagining that evokes wonder, excitement, invincibility, glamour and whimsy.
Entering through Mondrian’s signature thirty-foot mahogany doors, the bright, expansive lobby features custom-designed furniture, a Lucite indoor swing and a mushroom-inspired concierge desk. Each of the 236 pet-friendly rooms elicits adventure, mystery and magic with sleek and contemporary design, floor-to-ceiling windows, and soft hues of color juxtaposed with bold patterns.
Remaining as the epicenter of innovation and creativity, the lobby’s “Magic Box” acts as a rotating art gallery showcasing LA-based contemporary pop-artists, including Tony Kelly, Michael Turchin, Mikael B, and Matt Smiley. Known for its grandiose views, Skybar is a chic outdoor pool lounge perfect for soaking up the sun by day and dancing under the stars at night. A bustling hub for international and local trendsetters, Skybar hosts its exclusive Night Market with upscale vendors, intimate poolside performances, and daytime pool parties all summer featuring the hottest DJs from around the globe. Ivory on Sunset offers Italian-inspired libations and cuisine with a backdrop of stunning LA-views. Mondrian is a luxury hotel brand with locations in South Beach, London, New York, and Doha.
236 of the pet-friendly newly designed rooms invite guests to step through a modern-day looking glass and into a sleek and contemporary room with just a touch of whimsy and notice. A soft color palette with hints of blue will evoke the bright, airy and sunny skies of Los Angeles. The glowing mirrors and light fixtures will conjure the flashing bulbs of the paparazzi, aimed to put guests directly into the spotlight and into the comfort and forefront of their stay.
As they enter, they will find themselves tumbling into Wonderland alongside an art installation featuring a cosmopolitan woman falling through space. The White Rabbit is channeled through bunny ear-inspired hanging light fixtures set on a backdrop of swirl-designed wallpaper to transport guests to where the adventure all begins- down the rabbit hole. As guests lie down in the lavish, plush beds, they will be virtually transported through the swirling wallpaper design representative of the rabbit hole and into another dimension meant to be calming to the mind and body. Black and white checkerboard patterns play with the scale in the room, making guests unsure of their size within the space. A larger-than-life film of iridescent dragonfly wings are splashed across the mirror overlooking the seating area. These scale pieces serve to showcase how small and large one can feel in Los Angeles, a form of escape from the bustling city streets.
Guests can wander the labyrinth maze within the pattern of the area rug. Playing off the Wonderland garden, a mushroom-shaped side chair and ottoman in the lounge reflects the undertones and organic feeling of a personal Eden. Harkening back to Phillipe Starck’s original design, an aubergine chair serves as an ode to Mondrian’s original designer. A teapot-inspired Capollini chair from Milan captures the satire and inspiration of a mad hatter tea party, a tongue-in-cheek element that complements the overall joyfulness yet a form of comfort throughout. The lighting fixtures, which look curiously like rabbit ears, overlook the brand-new bed design that is draped in a signature blue and backed by swirling wallpaper, close to heart to the famed Wonderland heroine. New bathroom designs will provide a more European aesthetic that is sleek, clean quality, yet warm, airy and dramatic with new imported wall coverings and bathroom tile.
All rooms are equipped with notable features including new in-room safes, branded luxury robes, a plethora of outlets for easy charging devices, Lavazza coffee and a Smart TV featuring Hulu and Netflix.
Overall, guests will find a choreographed experience and a design detailed for them to discover the adventure, mystery and magic of wonderland for themselves.
