St. Bernard Parish, Louisiana WOW PROFILE: WOW! Mondrian South Beach, Miami Beach, Florida WOW FACTOR: Stunning Setting & Whimsical Design DESCRIPTION: The Mondrian South Beach already enjoys a stunning outdoor setting, perched on the waterfront of beautiful Biscayne Bay, but stepping into the interior is like entering another world. This was the intent of the hotel's revolutionary Dutch designer, Marcel Wanders. His whimsical and visionary style for the hotel is an homage to "Sleeping Beauty's Castle." In the soaring lobby, floor-to-ceiling windows offer spectacular views of the Bay, while the eye is drawn to the signature "floating staircase" and large gold bells, which are actually chandeliers. WOW! the WOW FACTOR!
