Dutch designer Marcel Wanders has created a fairy-tale world here Sleeping Beauty, to be precise. Hence the somewhat spooky feel that prevails at the Mondrian, starting with the lobby's giant gilded chandeliers, the windows that open onto Biscayne Bay, and, especially, the black floating staircase.
The rooms and suites, some equipped with balconies, are decorated with contemporary furnishings. White reigns supreme, with splashes of color to liven things up a bit.
In a nod to his native country, the decorator put blue Delft tiles in the bathrooms. Enjoy an afternoon at the pool surrounded by sun loungers on daybeds, before taking a drink in the spectacular Sunset Terrace Lounge, a must at sunset.
