A stayover in LA

On my latest trip to LA, my friend and I were trying to find somewhere hip and iconic to stay and wound up at the Mondrian:

Up above Sunset Boulevard,

you are greeted by a space that is chic and modern,

complete with a swing in the middle.

The hotel’s outside patio is beautiful with a pool and bar area:

And gorgeous decor:

The area is completely transformed after hours by pretty people mingling over drinks at night.


Inside, the halls and ceilings are beautiful:

And the rooms are something else!

See this gigantic mirror between the bed and sitting area?


It’s a TV.


The rooms have a chandelier up top


and a gorgeous couch and coffee table to relax by.


The soaps are hip too:

But the location was great to explore the Los Angeles are.  In fact, it’s only a 30-40 minute drive to Santa Monica:

and shopping on 4th street:


It’s a great way to spend a day in LA!
