Rustic, quaint, old-style decor, no tv, nice brunch, great wine selection. A quiet place except on Friday and Saturday nights when the bar and restaurant are plagued by the monied crowd. No better place to stay in the town, its steps away from everything Sag Harbor has to offer. However, the hotel cannot accommodate older patrons who have trouble with... More

The American Hotel in Sag Harbor is an institution. It was built in the mid 19th century in what was a whaling town and is now the "unhamptons." Actually, it becomes more chic each year and gentrification is a bit of a problem unless you want truffle fries. However the town still has the charm and the old movie theater... More

We ended up with suite 15, A very large and comfortable suite on the third floor overlooking the main street in the "Harbor". Quiet and nicely furnished for comfort. Access for the less amble might be a concern for some. The food and service at their restaurant was excellent. My spouse's halibut was prepared perfectly and heaped with chunks of... More

My wife, my cousin, his girlfriend and I had lunch here on a Sunday in June 2014 on the porch. The meal started out well enough: local Hog's Neck oysters (which were to die for), and beef carpaccio, which was delectable. The bloody marys were good too. The entrees, however, were a major disappointment. My wife ordered the Black Angus... More

We had Christmas lunch at The American Hotel today. The food was uneven. The greens in the salad were wilted. Pea soup and duck consomme were tasty. The roast duck was fatty and the consistency of the meat was mealy. The apple crisp for dessert was awful-the "crisp" part was soggy and doughy. The service was attentive, but courses came... More

Having dinner at the American Hotel in Sag Harbor made me sad. It wasn't the throwback elegance and romantic atmosphere of the dimly lit dining room, or the delectable crab cakes and perfectly prepared vegetables, or the attentive service of the professional waiters that brought on my melancholy. It was the fact that my husband was 1500+ miles away. He... More

The American Hotel is quaint, cozy and inviting when you first walk up. An historic building in Sag Harbor. Menu was limited. Largest wine selection we have ever seen [5-inch, 3 ring binder]. Drink order was taken quickly. Appetizers [we had garden salad that was incredibly salty]. Crabs cake sandwich was not lump crab, a more rounded patty. Side on... More

We stayed in #15 and loved the old Chinese style decor. Very spacious with all the amenities. Loved the fact there was no Tv. If you do not do stairs don't get this room cause there are two flights up, but well worth walkin up to this room. The real surprise was the 5 star restaurant downstairs! We had just... More

We just went here for a late night drink and dessert. Sat at the Old Bar, real classic old school Bar & Restaurant. The drink was perfect, and the Macadamia Tort was delicious. The Coffee and cream served in sterling pots. Just perfect...
