The American is a comfortable olden days style hotel with a lively bar scene and nice restaurant. The rooms are decorated in a period/thrift store/high-low style, but very comfortable. The linens are great. The hotel staff are superbly accommodating and helpful, and drinks in the bar are stiff! A great little hotel!

We stayed at this hotel for two nights and loved it. They gave us a awesome king room at good rate because we went on an off season and not too many people were staying at the hotel. The room was spacious and clean. The staff was very friendly. The bar area was always lively and comfortable! The food at... More

Was there for Christmas Day Dinner 2013...$85pp. With reservations required you would think they would not run out of food. 2 at our table had to change their orders and the patron at the next table asked the waiter "If you're out of food why did I drive here from Southampton?"...this was at 6:30, Portions were unbelievably small and nothing...

The American Hotel never disappoints! The location is excellent - right on the main street of quaint Sag Harbor, near restaurants, shops and the harbor itself. The rooms are well-appointed, spacious and comfortable. Hotel guests enjoy an ample breakfast buffet and can also order off the menu, and the dining room is quiet and private. Service is friendly and excellent.... More

We had such a great weekend at this hotel! From the moment we called to book, Dawn was awesome! She was enthusiastic about us staying with them and hooked us up with the Suite. The hotel…very clean. The bed was super comfortable, we usually travel with our own pillows but I used theirs because they were so cozy. The bathroom... More

This wonderfully located, beautifully restored hotel is best viewed from outside. The rooms are small and full of ambient noise when the restaurant is busy; the staff acts as if it's doing you a favor. Best for movie stars, hedge fund managers and other tragically hip neurotics. If you're none of those, give it a miss. Just another reason why... More

Ok, this is not the best, most luxurious place I ever stayed in, but: - the staff is incredibly friendly and nice, - the restaurant is really quite good (french cuisine with an american twist), - the location is perfect, - breakfast on the terrace on the morning of a sunny day is out of this world, - the building...

We had the nicest room there. The staff were extremely warm and welcoming. The restaurant was outstanding: food, ambiance, service. Located in town of Sag Harbor itself; Waterfront and shops just short walk up the street. Everything was fine...the details: sheets, silverware, bathroom fixtures, NY Times outside door in am, etc... Excellent stay & would love to return.

The rooms are charming but well appointed and the restaurant serves great food in a beautiful Victorian setting. It feels a but less formal to dine at the bar. The roast beef is a specialty and deservedly so. It is Hamptons style, expensive and snobby clientele, but get past that and enjoy.
