The Sagamore Hotel
Address: 1671 Collins Ave.
Neighborhood: South Beach
Phone: 877-242-6673 or 305-535-8088
Not too flashy yet chic enough to attract the haute crowd, this striking boutique is ideally located in the middle of the South Beach scene. In the maze of stylish, cutting-edge properties that monopolize Miami, the Sagamore sets itself apart with its impressive collection of contemporary art, photography, and sculpture; the oceanview gallery is lined with original works by celebrated artists. The vast all-white lobby stretches to the hotel’s “backyard” complete with a narrow, green lawn dotted with cushy, mod seating, an infinity pool, and an alfresco café. Apartment-like rooms offer ample space and homey comforts. All 76 suites, 16 two-story bungalows, and the penthouse, feature separate bedrooms with plush pillow-top mattresses and a sitting area with a pull-out sofa bed (the bungalows also come with full-kitchens with beer and champagne in the fridge, and top-shelf vodka in the freezer). White dominates the color scheme aside from some muted accents and a few dark-wood furnishings. Some rooms overlook the ocean, but the ultimate views are those from the rooftop penthouse. Off-season rates here are a real steal since you and a few friends can share an apartment-size suite.
