Where did you sleep last night?


Review – Mondrian Soho Hotel, 9 Crosby Street, New York, NY

Mondrian Soho bed pillowOne of the best night’s sleep away from home in quite a while; the bed envelopes you and before you know it, you’re fast asleep.

 

Typically, when traveling from California to New York (usually at the end of a work week), I take the redeye, thus, an early morning arrival means an early check in, when possible.

Further, a mid to late morning nap is essential, especially after a long work week.

 

What I tend to notice first are amenities and body care products; to my delight, my room was supplied with Malin + Goetz toiletries.  Their Rum Bar Soap is intoxicatingly enjoyable.

 

Arriving on a cold Saturday morning, my room wasn’t ready so I sauntered about the hotel, touring

briefly, as this was my first stay at the Mondrian Soho.  Developing an appetite, I decided to have breakfast in the hotel restaurant, Isola.

 

Address – Accommodations in this trendy Soho District offered a reflection on the city’s younger set, sprinkled with middle-agers

 

Bed – slept like a baby

Character – modern to trendy; spacious holding areas and lounges; was told by a guest that Bono was expected to be in house for a private affair

Décor – spectacular exterior arched entryway covered in foliage; blue and white color scheme less appealing, gorgeous restaurant enclosed in glass and wood with high ceiling providing an abundance of natural light

 

 

 

Efficiency – the staff, both hotel and restaurant were courteous, professional, timely, and willing to accommodate all travelers I observed. Impressed by efficient use of small room space, adequately providing most necessities, though no in-room slippers.

Food – high marks for presentation, creativity and taste
