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.

The hotel's own website probably says it best: "Part style icon, part boutique hotel". Many aspects of the hotel, including the rooms, are thoroughly modern while existing in a 1950s footprint along with several details of that era as well. My room was quite nice and the pool looked inviting although I did not use it.

I stayed at the Vagabond for the first time this week, while visiting relatives and attending a private event at Barry University. The hotel was conveniently located to places in Miami Shores, and had plenty of free parking. We enjoyed the beautiful pool deck and the remodeled, clean rooms. I would change just a couple features of the hotel if I could. The practice of dropping off the key at the main desk and picking it up whenever we came back to the hotel was quite quaint; I had only experienced this in two old European hotels in the past. Also the large frosted windows in the room doors let in too much light. We couldn't darken our room more than a twilight glow due to the lights in the hallway. The smell of the disinfectant spray, although reassuring, was difficult to remove from the room. Nevertheless, I would stay again. We enjoyed an outdoor meal at the Mandolin, the restaurant connected to the hotel, and I would also recommend the bakery one block south on Biscayne Avenue, Flavorish. They serve a good, reasonable, breakfast with freshly squeezed OJ, and they are convenient since the hotel does not serve breakfast during the pandemic.

We are delighted that you selected the Vagabond for your recent visit to Miami. We are certainly very centrally located and as such makes it easier for our guests to explore all that Miami has to offer. We will be sure to remove the diffuser in the rooms for your next stay, which will hopefully be sooner rather than later! In terms of the lighting situation, we have black-out shades for the windows and the main doors have a film that blocks most of the hallway light. I am glad you had the opportunity to explore the restaurants in our neighborhood, we have so many good ones and a variety of cuisines. Stay safe and healthy!

I stayed with my family at the Vagabond for 14 nights and it was amazing. We occupied two rooms in total. The rooms were so stylish and extremely clean, which was my main concern after safety. The motel feels like a resort with the plants and the beautiful pool and bar. The Vagabond restaurant, Mr. Mandolin, is both delicious and beautifully appointed. They even deliver poolside. The Vagabond is in a cool neighborhood and close to the beach and other parts of Miami. It is walking distance to a bunch of restaurants and shops. My husband used the work office during the week and in all it was a great experience.

Thank you so very much for the wonderful feedback! We did purchase this iconic motel of the 50's, fully renovated it and reopened it on 2014 as Hotel. We stayed very true to the Mid Century Modern design and architecture and made sure the hotel qualified to be listed in the Historic National Registry. We look forward to welcoming you and the entire family back to the Vagabond!

This was my first time ever in Miami where I stayed on the 'main land' as opposed to South Beach and it was a FANTASTIC experience. I in know way knock the lure of the ocean, it's fantastic and south beach is incredible, but I urge you to see more of Miami when you're there. The Vagabond was a cherished piece of Miami history that we very nearly lost. Luckily a new ownership group swooped in and restored it to brilliance and in the process made it a fantastically situated spot in which to soak in the city on famed Biscayne Blvd. Wether you are outdoors sitting around the immaculately kept poolside area, in your sharply designed and curated room, or on the property at the attached restaurant (Mr Mandolin) you have found a great temporary home. There are INCREDIBLE dining options all around the hotel in every direction, walking distance away. The Vagabond is a great place to start or end your Miami stay.

I love this hotel. So for my first job back in almost 7 months, I knew I wanted to stay at The Vagabond. I had to stay the weekend between projects, and wanted to enjoy the awesome pool. Which I did! The beds were just as comfy and cozy as I remembered, the walk-in shower still a favorite (not a bathtub girl.) Missed my robe, but with Covid, I get it. I was able to walk to several restaurants for dinner pick-up. And took a 2 hour walk in the neighborhoods behind the hotel Saturday morning. They just always make me feel welcome and at home... THANK YOU MAY! You are the best making sure my stay was safe and comfortable. Having a keurig and refrigerator was great. I recommend getting the room with these. Can't wait to visit again!

It was lovely having you back at the Vagabond Pamela. We take the safety of our guests and employees very seriously and I glad that you felt safe and look forward to your return stay. In terms of the robes, we actually have them at the front desk individually wrapped and available upon request. Sorry I forgot to inform you of this change. Enjoy the holiday season!
