The staff was superb and the restaurant was outstanding! We loved the decor and concept and found the area to be a great location to get to all parts of Miami with plenty of up and coming restaurants and shops nearby.

Vagabond Hotel is an absolute must if you're in town and looking for a cool experience. From the minute you walk in you're greeted by the friendliest staff at front desk and it keeps just getting better and better from there. Our room was funky, super clean with a cold refrigerator, nice big shower, complimentary water in the room and...

This place is perfect for a couple, friends, and family. My boyfriend and I stayed here and want to go back as soon as possible. The bar tender was wonderful, the rest of the staff was welcoming and responsive, and the setting is FUN and HIP and GORGEOUS. Plus it's close to Wynwood and very accessible to South Beach (and...

I found this little gem while on a search for hotels near a college that my son was playing ball against. This came up on the search. Although one of the searches showed it as a hotel it is actually a motel that has been renovated with ultra modern decor. I have probably told 20 people since staying there last...

Sounds like you had a great time at the Hotel and we hope you return soon! We actually renovated the hotel about 4 years ago and even though we run it as a Hotel, it is a historic property, and as such the signs all around the property were replicated to match the original signage from 1953. Thank you for...

Very enjoyable 2 nights before a cruise. Immaculate property where people really take pride in their jobs. The pool area and bar are great except they do not serve Budlight, only local beers.nice bucket of water by the pool and a wagon of beach towels. So many little touches Several food choices in the area. Bypass the vagabond kitchen which...

Firstly, I am quite pleased to read that you had a pleasant stay though not without a few issues which we will try to address. The restaurant is not open for breakfast or lunch but there are quite a few choices within walking distance. It is true that our complimentary breakfast is really basic. We do offer hotel guests entertainment...

Super cool retro hotel with very friendly staff. Our room was bright and comfortable. The pool and bar were lively and fun but not intrusive. The owner came out and personally introduced herself and asked how our stay was. Would recommend this place highly.

Went here for a pool party with some friends recently while visiting Miami Poolside bar had a great vibe and the entire place was laid back but fantastic. Staff were very friendly and made some great drinks - we ended up spending the entire afternoon drinking and swimming in the sun!

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Re-defined. Re-invented. Re-imagined Blending cutting edge design with timeless retro aesthetics, the newly renovated Vagabond Hotel is a cosmopolitan mix of all things hassle-free. The perfect balance of attentive boutique service, retro-chic inspired interiors and contemporary comfort, the Vagabond invites you to kick back and relax. Set to redefine it's glamorous past as a fabled Rat Pack hangout, the Vagabond is back. An iconic mid-century modern Miami landmark, set within 56,000 sq. ft of lush landscaping, this reinvented, newly renovated American Motel classic has been completely transformed into a super-fabulous, uber-chic, twenty-first century, retro-luxe, 45-room boutique service hotel. Designed by us, but always inspired by you, we know a hotel is more than just a place for you to sleep. It's where you work, rest, play and stay. So, offering more than the to be expected style savvy good looks, our vibrant, retro-licious guest rooms wrap you up in a cosmopolitan world of stylish home comforts, designer touches and high-tech convenience. All topped off with meticulous service from friendly, knowledge staff . . Simply put, from the minute you check into the Vagabond's ultra-modern lobby to the moment you reluctantly say goodbye you'll be smitten... Sleek 1950's inspired custom made furniture, dreamy hypo-allergenic Italian beds,vibrant bursts of color, free high speed Wi-Fi, intricately stenciled geometric wall art, invigorating rain showers, sumptuous eco-chic toiletries, state of the art 40" flat screen TVs and stunning original design features, such as terrazzo tiling and wooden flooring are just some of small details that we know will make the big difference. However, don't get too comfortable... With most of our spacious, rooms opening up into a tantalizing poolside oasis, decked out with sultry palm trees, oversized sun loungers, a delectable cabana bar, and mouth watering restaurant, you 'll be spoilt by what to do next. But let's be honest, if the biggest decisions you have to make each day, are what sunscreen you should wear while swimming away the hours with our legendary mosaic mermaid, or whether of not you should order your Vodka Vagatini frozen or on the rocks while you soak up the rays, life can't be bad. ..And don't worry, even if you're less of a 'factor 15 universalistic sun worshipper' and more of the 'get up and go' travel connoisseur, architecture buff, fashionista, foodie, style seeker, culture vulture or art lover, we've still got you covered. With Downtown, South Beach, Midtown, the Wynwood Art Scene and the Design District, all with easy reach, the very best of Miami's dining, shopping, sightseeing and sunbathing is at your fingertips Less of an end destination and more of an experience, for us using the Do Not Disturb sign is a style statement, not a declaration of privacy. ... more   less
