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.
This all-suite hotel offers many amenities. Expect bottled water, Wi-Fi, a terrace, a flatscreen TV, mini-bar, and in-room safe as some of the perks you'll find.
Bathrooms feature Molton Brown bath products, a whirlpool bath, and a separate water closet.
The lobby doubles as a revolving art gallery. An on-staff art advisor curates art exhibits featuring local and global names in the art community. Exhibits are turned over every 60 days, making sure there's always something to see and ponder at the Sagamore.
If you visit during Art Basel (generally the first week of December), you might be mingling with world-famous names in the art community.
Most South Beach attractions are within walking distance. The free Miami Beach Trolley navigates around the city seven days a week.
Byblos (10-minute walk) offer Mediterranean fare is a colorful souk-like setting. Maxine's (across the street) is a lively bistro that's open 24 hours a day.
The Regent Cocktail Club (2-minute walk away) serves classic cocktails in an intimate setting with live music many evenings. Report Bar offers cocktails made with fresh herbs grown on premises.
