If a stylishly updated 1940s-era hotel and a contemporary art museum got together and had a love child, this is it. A distinctive neon sign on Collins Avenue welcomes guests to the old-school porte cochère entrance of this Art Deco property. Inside, gallery-lit walls showcase bold, carefully curated pieces, from a graffitied Wonder Woman portrait to canvases erupting in colorful, abstract brush strokes, while common areas are punctuated by sculptures like a giant blue baby with enormous feet and a pair of glossy, hot-pink pants that stand on their own two legs. The 93 all-suite guest rooms, in contrast, are crisply designed, with porcelain tile floors, sheer white drapes, and towering upholstered headboards. Another property highlight: a wade-in pool and modern deck that borders the sandy shores of the Atlantic.
In the Area
Thanks to the hotel’s prime position at the crossroads of South Beach near Collins Avenue and Lincoln Road, a multitude of shops and restaurants are at your doorstep. Stroll the shady Lincoln Road Mall to browse brands like Penguin, Superdry, and BCBG, then dine alfresco at Segafredo, an Italian tapas spot with tasty cocktails and espresso and first-rate people watching. For a more upscale experience, we’d recommend Bianca, a polished indoor-outdoor restaurant at the chichi Delano South Beach next door to the hotel. Stick around after dinner to frolic at the Delano’s exclusive basement FDR lounge, or take your party outside to the sexy, garden-themed Skybar at the nearby Shore Club.

We have been vacationing in Miami for the past 6 years and have always stayed at the Ritz Carlton South Beach. However, this year the Ritz is temporarily closed for remodeling due to hurricane Irma. I was at a loss as to where I would book our trip this year. The Ritz was perfect because we love to stay within walking distance to Lincoln Rd. This is especially convenient since we travel with teenagers. It’s near where all the shops and quick bite restaurants are. We also loved the location, in the fact that it’s right on the beach and not far from “people watching” on Ocean Dr. So I began looking at hotels right next to where we normally stay. There are indeed many, yet I was worried that nothing would compare to the level of quality we are used. This year I knew that we would be traveling with extra in our group and we would need to book 2 rooms. Our son was graduating high school and bringing along 3 additional friends. I compared room sizes at nearby hotels, and even found that the Sagamore offered various types of suites. Needless to say, after MUCH research, this top notch hotel did not disappoint! The moment we stepped inside, we were greeted by Linford at the front desk, who immediately remembered my husband calling the previous day to see if we could get our 2 Garden View Suites side by side. He was extremely friendly and offered to make dinner suggestions and reservations for us if needed. Our rooms were ready when we arrived (which was around 3pm), so went immediately up to settle in. I have to say, I was beyond shocked when I walked into the suite and saw the absolutely breathtaking view!!!! Both rooms had a long corridor right when entering, that lead to a living space with huge double sliding doors to a balcony overlooking a beautiful lush green garden area. Beyond the garden you see the pool and the ocean. Absolutely gorgeous! These views can be seen throughout the entire unit. Off the living space area, adjacent the balcony is the bedroom that is also connected by huge glass doors. Continuing further back is bathroom with a large opaque door. When standing in the bathroom area, you are able to see straight through the large spacious unit clear out to the gardens and ocean.
The next day after we arrived, we decide to check out the beach for a few hours. Again we were immediately impressed with the level of service we received from the staff at the Sagamore! We were greeted on the sand by Petrus and Gee, who explained that each rooms comes with 2 free chairs per day, however we can rent more if needed. We ended up renting an additional 2 chairs and umbrellas as well. Both Petrus and Gee checked on us throughout the day and were friendly and accommodating with our large group. I couldn’t have asked for better service!
On the morning of our departure, we decided that would walk to the Social Club for brunch. However, traveling with teenagers I was worried about making the 12:00 checkout time. Again, Linford was extremely reassuring and helpful! He insisted that we take our time eating brunch and enjoy the last morning of our stay.
We have never had such a fantastic vacation in Miami! And I can honestly say that we will be returning to the Sagamore every year from now on!!!!!
Stayed with my family, wife and 2 smaller daughters, end of April in this hotel, for 3 nights before driving to Orlando, after being here as well in 2015.
When we arrived they tried to charge us with the resort fee again, which was already pre paid by the travel agency. Lets call that a smaller human error. Futhermore, we arrived very late in the evening after a 13h flight from Europe, the sofa bed for the kids was not prepared. This was fixed the same night by the receptionist......., as the one charged with this task did not show up! Lets call that a bigger human error.
We also found out, in comparison to 2015, that the kids did not have the free drinks / snacks etc at the pool side / bar. that was a very nice feature and one of the reasons why we chose this hotel again.
We had a bungalow alongside the pavement leading to the pool, where the stairs going to the bedroom, was one of a scary version. it was not properly fixed to the walls and we had the feeling that it would come down every second when walking this plank.......... Strange to this bungalow was as well, that the airco was situated at the 1st floor, not were our daughters slept, e.g. the groundfloor. The airco was also very loud and most probably due for overhaul or replacement.
What is the biggest error of all, is that, without telling us, a 400USD deposit was put to our credit card (still do not know why, as all was pre paid already) and until this very day, it is still shown on my credit card reports. Various mails apparently does not do the trick.
hopefully with this review, we get the proper attention and solution provided.
These kind of things should not happen in a well run hotel. You pay purely for the location (which is great), not the room, nor the customer services or the after sales. Things really need to turn around there, before we set foot again in that hotel (or goes bankrupt, whatever comes first).
On 19-21/4 me and my husband stayed at Sagamore hotel for our honeymoon. At arrival the check in took very long time, it seemed there was some kind of problem but after 15 min we got the key. The room was booked 5 months before with garden view and balcony, prepaid. At arrival to our room We faced this concrete wall and NO balkony. We went back to the reception and the manager told us that our room had a leak(Yeah, right) and that they now where fully book. EXCEPT for their ”test and design room” with new wodden floors yada yada. Still no balcony and no garden view. With a withdrawal of 250 dollars we accepted. The AC was so loud we could not hear the tv even on loud volume. The wind from the AC was significant and only had ON or OFF. The corridor looked like from a horror movie. Only 2 nights thank god. So over priced! 500 dollar/night
To start: the location is great and the staff was very nice. Also, the art was amazing as was the food. The accommodations however were lacking and the reason I will not be back. We stayed in a Bungalo and it was extremely outdated. The furniture was so old that it looked dirty. There was a couch in the Bungalo that I wouldn’t go near and the hallways felt “dorm” like. And the bathroom made me feel like I was at a motel.
The pool was eh. And the beach was quite standard. However we needed towel cards and had to present the cards at the beach and we could only get one towel each. No more. What? There was a couple next to us yesterday who had two kids with them. They were only allowed to get two chairs. Now I can see this being the rule on a very busy day. But there were about four other people on the beach because the weather was terrible. Why not give them extra chairs? They’re just always seemed to be so many rules. Needless to say, I did not come home raving about the hotel.
