Thereâ€™s a very exciting buzz in the airâ€¦ Weâ€™re packing our swimsuits and touring the US in July! In true We Are Handsome style, weâ€™ve been on the hunt for the most handsome waterholes to drink at; the most handsome hotspots to eat at; and the most handsome digs to sleep at. Luckily for us, thereâ€™s a stellar new addition to New Yorkâ€™s glamorous hotel scene; welcome, the Mondrian Soho.
This chic hotel is situated in a fantastic central location, right between Soho and Chinatown. But what about the actual digs, you ask. Well when you walk through the doors, expect a whimsical fairytale feel, a kind of Alice in Wonderland meets Cinderella. Or perhaps Beauty and the Beast, seeing as the designers took inspiration from Jean Coucteauâ€™s 1946 film La Belle et la BÃªte. Bright white walls, plush periwinkle-blue armchairs, grand chandeliers; the style is elegant and eclectic with a fresh modern finish. Each guestroom even comes complete with an iPad to play with, as well as that breathtaking cityscape view. Hello, floor-to-ceiling windows. Donâ€™t stare for too long though, the hotel also has a sustainable seafood restaurant, bar and patio area, and fitness facilities. Although the only workout our arms are going to be doing is lifting our cocktail from the table, up to our mouth, and back down again. Imagine an enchanting secret garden in a luxe glass-roofed greenhouse, and you might be somewhere in the ballpark of Mondrianâ€™s atrium bar.
You know us; we only want the hottest, the coolest, the best â€“ and now that weâ€™ve found this place, we canâ€™t imagine staying anywhere else. So to Mondrian Soho, we so say yes. Dibs on the Penthouse!
