The Vagabond Hotel Miami

The ultimate retro-chic Miami hotel experience.

A newly-renovated, mid-century modern mix of all things hassle-free, The Vagabond Hotel Miami is a cultural landmark. This uber-chic boutique celebrates its glamorous past as a fabled Rat Pack hangout while embracing the easy, breezy vibe Miami is known for.  The Vagabond is a classic American Motel expertly renovated and transformed into a twenty-first century, retro-luxe 42-room boutique service hotel.

Part style icon, part boutique hotel, entirely fabulous.

What it's like

From the minute you step into the retro-luxe lobby to the moment you reluctantly say your goodbyes, be prepared for a whirlwind love affair. You’ll be greeted by friendly, eager-to-please staff with oodles of personality.  As you step inside your room, your senses will be delighted:  the refreshing burst of cool air, the vibrant hues, the rich, tactile furniture. No detail is overlooked in these well-appointed guest retreats.  Set your bags down and settle in by stretching out on luxurious, custom-made, hypo-allergenic Italian beds. Peer through the window at the lushly landscaped courtyard and Miami Modern architecture.

Independent spirit

A revived "jet age" boutique hotel that embodies Miami Modern style.

Small touches

The Vagabond has mastered the balance between retro and modern. You’ll find fast free Wi-Fi, smart TVs, eco-friendly toiletries, lux bedding, and quiet air conditioning. But the cherished details of the bygone era have been meticulously maintained or restored: The mermaid mosaic at the bottom of the pool is the same one that Frank Sinatra likely splashed above — she (and her dolphin friends) have been intricately restored. A fountain featuring three sirens frolicking in a clamshell while dolphins look on is a hallmark of the hotel and it has been dutifully preserved.

Eat and drink

Discover a chill daytime oasis and intimate nighttime hotspot at The Vagabond Pool Bar. With all-around feel-good vibes and luscious cocktails flowing freely, this is the place to unwind, relax and simply be yourself after a day of wandering with fellow Miami vagabonds.  Grab a table at Mr. Mandolin, a healthy, casual Mediterranean restaurant. Inspired by the street-food cultures of Greece and Turkey, Mr. Mandolin delivers high-quality, flavor-packed food in a communal, laid back environment. You’ll quickly realize why this is a hotspot for locals and visitors alike.
