A Quick Trip Out of Town

If you’ve only got a day, try L.A.

The Mondrian Hotel in West Hollywood has been wowing guests for more than 20 years and now under the leadership of Las Vegas/Los Angeles hospitality group sbe, they offer packages that make a quick getaway from the desert a great way to play. Refreshed in 2008 by posh, whimsical, nonconformist designer Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, stepping into the fairytale lobby is like being transported down Alice’s Rabbit Hole. There’s even a Lucite indoor swing, mushroom-inspired reception desk, and 30-foot mahogany front doors.

Check out these three great packages that bring the experience together.

Because this is the season for lovers, Mondrian brings pure romance in the form of the Ah, L’Amour package, including an in-room couple’s massage and a $125 gift card to sbe’s Doheny Room, followed by drinks for two at famed celebrity haunt Skybar, overlooking Los Angeles. Back in the hotel room, expect turn down service including Champagne and rose petals.

If you are the type that likes to stay in when you get away, try the Cozy Up and dine, drink and sleep without ever leaving the confines of the Mondrian’s Sunset Boulevard address. This package includes a $150 dining credit to Ivory on Sunset, plus two cocktails at Skybar.


Go big and book a deluxe studio suite room type or better and save 20 percent on your stay and also get two complimentary cocktails at Skybar. Hint! The grand, rotating oversize orange mirror in the center of the room also hides the television, making you feel like you’ve stepped into Alice in Wonderland’s chic L.A. apartment.
