Sagamore Hotel South Beach Reviews
Boutique hotel in South Beach Mar 19, 2011
The Sagamore's tag line is "The Art Hotel" and I'll admit it was pretty artsy. Virtually everything is white and there are interesting sculptures, paintings and photos everywhere. Given what I'm sure is a horrific cost for beachfront property, it's surprising that the Sagamore has only a handful of floors but the place is much better for it. In addition to the main building is another with two-story suites called bungalows. We were fortunate to have been upgraded to one of these. While it looked out at a garden rather than at the ocean, there was a terrace with an oblique ocean view on each floor. It was only a few steps from our terrace to the pool.
The only negative about the room is that the lighting SUCKED. I had an awful time finding any place at all where there was enough light to read without a book light! Oh, I guess some folks might have a problem with the circular metal staircase that was the only way to get to the bathroom and bedroom but we didn't have a problem with it.
They offered a daily "Sagamore Plan" that included buffet breakfast, beach chairs, and wireless internet access. We took it each day and found it worthwhile.
The beach is, of course, marvelous and the staff there was friendly.
The hotel's location is great as it's just a 1/2 block to Lincoln Road and then another block to the beginning of a very long pedestrian area with countless shops, restaurants, etc. After shelling out $120 for pizza and two drinks at the hotel pool on the first day (This place is NOT cheap!!) , we went to Lincoln road every day for both lunch and dinner and had some great meals.
True, we were probably the oldest people there but, bottom line, I'd be happy to go back.
