Fodor's Expert Review Sagamore, the Art Hotel

1671 Collins Ave., Miami Beach, Florida, 33139, United States See on Map

This super sleek, all-white, all-suite hotel in the middle of the action looks and feels like an edgy art gallery, filled with brilliant contemporary works, the perfect complement to the posh, gargantuan, 500-square-foot crash pads. With all the mind-bending hipness, you might expect South Beach pretentiousness, but there's none here. In fact, the service is excellent. All suites have some kind of kitchen component, with at least a microwave and mini-fridge, sometimes a full fridge and stove. What else? How about huge flat-screen TVs and whirlpool baths? As you might expect of such an arty place, hallways are lined with noted artists' quotes, and public restrooms feature avant-garde video installations. The in-house Muse Beauty Suite offers salon and spa services, which you can enjoy in the spa, beachside, in a cabana, by the pool, or in your room. The 500-square-foot terrace overlooking the ocean is great for spa parties.
