Bathroom of room 2409 at the Mondrian Soho NYC
When I visit New York, I prefer to stay downtown. I spent my NYU years living between Greenwich Village and Union Square and while I’ve stayed uptown before, the truth is I’m definitely a lot more comfortable downtown, even with my upscale taste. Fortunately there is no shortage of downtown Manhattan accomodations these days and I checked out three different options on my most recent trip to New York.
First up, The Mondrian SoHo.
The lovely European inspired garden at Mondrian SOHO. Felt like it was out of a fairy tale. The decor was inspired by French director Jean Cocteau’s 1946 film La Belle et la Bête (Beauty and the Beast)
From time I arrived at the hotel to laying my eyes on room 2409, I was impressed by the design which embraced both European charm and modern whimsical touches like furry lamps in the lobby. I even got Rebecca to re-enact the Touch The Furry Wall scene from Get Him to the Greek.
