At the Sagamore Hotel, art meets Art Deco. Located just two doors down from the infamous Delano Hotel, the Sagamore is quietly captivating in its own right. Renovated in 2002, this 1948 beachfront hotel features 92 luxurious all-suite, apartment-like rooms, eight rooftop penthouse suites and 16 two-story garden bungalows.
With the fully equipped kitchens, porcelain tile flooring (marble in the penthouses), high-speed internet connection, DVD players, stereos and two cable televisions in each room you’ll have all the cozy comforts of home – and then some.
While plenty of hotels boast about their on-site art collection, the Sagamore pulls out all the stops with its impressive collection of contemporary art, photography and sculpture. You can expect to see tour de force pieces by well-known international artists like Massimo Vitali, Tina Dietz, Udo Noger and Dan Peterson.
The ultrachic lobby-cum modern art gallery isn’t the only place you’ll find these masterpieces though – there is art in all the public spaces as well as in the hotel’s oceanview gallery, and every guest room features original works by up-and-coming artists that are sure to impress.
The hotel lobby even has its own curator! Other on-site amenities include an Infinity pool, poolside spa treatments, a café a second-story sundeck for catching rays in the buff and a manicured lawn that stretches from the hotel’s back terrace to the sandy shore of the Atlantic.
All this and you are in walking distance of Lincoln Road, the botanical gardens, the convention center and, of course, Ocean Drive. Although, no one will be able to blame you if you don’t want to leave the hotel at all.
