Celebrity deaths aside, the Mondrian in West Hollywood has been getting a lot of attention for its ongoing renovations. Slated to be completed by September, the hotel's new look was recently referenced in an earnings conference call by an executive at parent company Morgans Hotels. "At Mondrian LA on Sunset Boulevard we’re doing a complete renovation of the property, restoring it to its original Hollywood glamour, which includes a total redesign of the guest rooms, new bathrooms, totally redesigned public spaces to create a daring and breathtaking experience. Leading the design project is Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz, a talent we deeply believe in. I’d invite everyone on this call to check out the new rooms at Mondrian LA if you have the opportunity. They will absolutely blow you away."
So, while we get ready to check out the new rooms (more post on this to come), brace yourself for the desert version: Construction of the Mondrian Hotel next to the Palm Springs Convention Center should start by next year, according to reports.
