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.

Room never cools down!!! Nice remodel but unless you are okay sleeping in 75 degrees this is not your place. Pool looked nice but it’s all about the sleeping conditions and therefore I only give Vagabond 3 stars. Not to mention if you turn off the dehumidifier it get musty so every 15 minutes a loud fan blows.

Hotel's Favorite
Absolutely worth staying!..From outside the looks can be deceiving but once you hit the pool/courtyard/tiki bar area, it's a game changer. This hotel is so dope, an awesome 50's hotel brought back to amazing life. The pool is huge and the tiki bar really brings the night life to the hotel. Rooms are spacious and all face the pool. Bathrooms are big and the shower was huge. Place is super clean and welcoming. The cafe attached to the hotel had some great pastries and was a cool addition to the hotel. If you love history and are looking to stay a little outside of South Beach, this is definitely the spot for you. I would go back in a heartbeat!!

First and foremost to me: Spotlessly Clean. Then, the mid-century retro vibe was really fun! The staff was very helpful. The Vagabond was easy walking distance to some good eating. We really enjoyed Ms Chievous across the street; they specialize in grilled cheese sandwiches. They also had board games to play - My Battleships got sunk. We were in town to go to the interactive art exhibit SuperBlue and it was all around a wonderful getaway. Highly recommend!

This is the cutest hotel! If you love the vintage era of the 50s and 60s then you must stay here. The owners have renovated this property back to its original glory. The pool and bar area could not be more perfect. It is a true time machine. The owners and managers were very nice. This was unlike a mom and pop motel- it is run like a hotel. Managers are on duty at night, complimentary water is waiting for you in your charming room. I loved the shower - original tile, yet updated with a rain shower head. Take note of the original sign out front along with a vintage Coppertone billboard in the background. I highly recommend this hotel.

We are delighted Monica that you truly enjoyed the hotel and appreciated the midcentury modern architecture and design! The old motel was purchased, fully gutted, renovated and reopened as a hotel in 2014. As a historic property, all the signage are replicas of the originals. We hope you are able to return soon!

If you are looking for a mid-century vibe with modern amenities, friendly staff and an out of sight restaurant right on sight - look no further. The pool area was surprisingly private. All of the grounds were very well maintained. We travel to Miami often, and this will be our hotel of choice from here on. Excellent.
