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.
How to Get There
Recently, I booked a stay at the Sagamore Hotel (8/30 - 9/2) and came into town for a wedding. Unfortunately, when I checked in to the hotel the room was under horrible conditions. The room was filthy: the tub looked like it hadn't been cleaned in weeks. It was full of dirt and pubic hairs. The entire side of the tub was cracked. The lights in the bathroom were extremely dim. The closet door knob (glass) was cracked and broken. The furniture was extremely dated and looked worn. The stove top was boarded up with wood. Needless to say, the conditions were extremely terrible and unlivable.
To make things worse, the hotel staff was not accommodating AT ALL. Never once did they offer me a room in the newer/renovated building. Of course, I chose not to stay at the hotel and I even had to pay a cancellation fee in the amount of a one-night stay.
I was extremely disappointed in this treatment because I had heard great things about the Sagamore in the past. But because of the room conditions and the treatment, I would never recommend this hotel to anyone.
If someone on the admin team is willing to work with me, and perhaps offer me my deposit back... that could help mitigate some of the challenges and extreme inconvenience I faced having to find a new hotel, last minute, Labor Day weekend, just so I could make it to my wedding in time.
Otherwise, I look forward to leaving a horrendous Yelp review and never recommending this place again.

The best at Miami Beach
It was my 16th time at the hotel
Love it and I feel at home
Remodelling the bungalows was amazing an d besutifull! Great idea the bathroom downstairs But I think a microwave is stil necessary !
I used to love this hotel. I used to brag & boast on this hotel! I know it's not under the same ownership and that maybe the reason but, it's gone down - like all the way down, it's actually sad. Back in the days - the minute you walked into the Sagamore you felt good, clean, vibes... Now - a - days - not so much... The front desk looks dated and worn down. The Art Work - has no appeal because the furniture is a filthy distraction. The front of the hotel no longer looks inviting - just blah. The umbrella's and beach chairs are worn down and the beach area is gross! The beach area at the public beach down around 600 Collins Ave is far better and cleaner... The hallway has a nice scent, not sure what it was but, it was pleasant and it killed the smoke smell. The paint on the hotel room doors is chipping, the hotel room furniture is dated, doesn't match and has no appeal. The bathroom was OKAY, it was clean...
