If the closest you’re likely to get to X Factor stardom is the karaoke machine at your local pub, you needn’t miss out on living like a star - just follow in Kelly Rowland’s footsteps. No, I don’t mean the 1am workout sessions, instead check in to the Mondrian hotel in Miami, where she stayed for the judge’s house section of the show.
A short walk from the beautiful people and equally beautiful Art Deco buildings of Ocean Drive and South Beach, the Mondrian looks out onto the Atlantic Ocean, Biscayne Bay and downtown Miami, as well as the bars, restaurants and vintage shops around Lincoln and Washington.
Of course, to really carry off A-list cool, you’ll have to practise looking unimpressed at the ‘floating staircase’ in the lobby, unfazed by the stylish statement wallpaper and minimalist chic, and laid back about the stunning sunset view over the city skyline from the Sunset lounge.
Luckily, whenever you need a few moments to sneak off and let your jaw drop in private, you can always escape from the cabanas and hammocks around the pool through the secret pathways and kissing corners. Who needs Simon Cowell?
Rooms cost from around £170 per night ($265).
