The Look

Dutch provocateur Marcel Wanders designed Mondrian as a surrealist homage to Sleeping Beauty’s castle. Three enormous chandeliers sway over the porte cochere, offering perfect paparazzi lighting for A-list guests. The snow-white lobby feels like a dream playground, with a floating black laser-cut staircase, lacquered columns that feel like Brobdingnagian chair legs and chandeliers encased in oversize brass bells.

Bed & Bath

Guestrooms are modern and eccentric, with kaleidoscopic black and white wallpaper, blue and white Delft tiles portraying old-school Florida scenes, and funky graphic rugs. Bathrooms feel whimsical thanks to chandelier-like showerheads, gravity defying infinity sinks and trompe l’oeil mirrors. Clean-lined furniture, white-on-white platform beds and such mod cons as 42-inch plasma TVs and Egyptian cotton sheets keep things grounded.

Neighborhood

Sign up for an Art Deco walking tour with the Miami Design Preservation League, or explore the city’s edgier side with a street art tour. All the hip arty types are slumming it at the Broken Shaker bar, in the Freehand hostel. Grab a tiki-inspired drink by the fountain before heading out for a rib-sticking dinner of fried chicken and biscuits at Yardbird, or haute seafood at the buzzy Juvia, a South Beach "it" table perched atop the Herzog and de Meuron–designed 1111 Lincoln Road. SoBe’s Frank Gehry–designed New World Center makes high culture hip with a theater that transforms into a nightclub-style venue mixing electronica and classical music.
