ARRIVAL/CHECK-IN: After a not-so-long and good flight all the way from Mexico City to L.A., we drove from LAX to Sunset Boulevard just as sunset began … and at a time when the city started to come back to life after COVID. As we entered the hotel, I could swear we were entering a modern art gallery. We didn’t even have to wait a minute for the kind man at the front desk to attend to us. The check-in process took no time, and we had access to our room earlier than expected. He gave us important information about the services, amenities and sanitary regulations so we could have a safe stay to protect ourselves and others.
GUEST QUARTERS: We stayed in the Deluxe Studio Suite, and the name couldn’t be more accurate. A closet to the right of the entrance offered more space than needed, while a big mirror to the left was handy for confirming I was wearing the right outfit for an appointment or exploration of L.A. A good-sized desk provided the perfect spot to catch up with emails and attend Zoom meetings, and the sustainable bamboo floors caught my attention. A comfortable sofa served as a simple couch or a bed. I appreciated the coffee service in the room because I can’t start my day without coffee. My favorite part? The bathroom, with generous space for two marble sinks and two rainfall showers, which I enjoyed. Last but not least, the king-sized bed was exactly what I needed after a long day of exploring or meetings.
Add the great view of Sunset Boulevard, and the suite provides the perfect setting to start a busy day in a luxurious way.
SERVICES/AMENITIES: When you arrive at the Mondrian, make sure you let the team know your housekeeping preferences for your room to be cleaned daily or not; due to COVID restrictions, they do not provide daily service without previous notice. This was a thoughtful touch.
I loved the Sky Bar — perfect to have drinks with my brother — with its great service and a wonderful view of L.A. at night. I actually thanked my brother for dragging me to the fitness center, properly equipped and perfect to keep up with your routine without spending extra time working out — let’s not forget there’s a city waiting to be explored.
- It was amazing having lots of nearby options for lunch or shopping. My favorite was Mel’s Drive-In for breakfast, worth the price.
- The hotel displays modern art throughout plus offers great spots to be photographed.
- The WiFi quality was beyond great, never failed, and I could work perfectly without problems.
- Incredible views of Sunset Boulevard
