Mondrian Hotel, Los Angeles

Thursday, 5 January 2012

Situated on Hollywood’s world famous Sunset Boulevard, the Mondrian Hotel, Los Angeles looks out over downtown LA, Hollywood and Beverly Hills.

The 189,000sq ft space was conceived by hotelier Ian Schrager, designed by Philippe Starck, and is part of the Morgans Hotel Group, which also looks after Miami's The Delano, London's Sanderson and St Martins Lane and The Hudson in New York.

The 245 guest rooms and suites are large and light with floor-to-ceiling windows. Beds vary between queen and king size, and rooms come equipped with iPod speakers, huge TV screens that double as mirrors and white chaises longue in the lounge area.

Furniture is a high-design mix of bespoke pieces by Starck, classics by designers including Antonio Gaudi, Charles and Ray Eames, Patrick Chia and Vincent Beaurin, and contemporary design houses such as Droog and Taiko.
