SOUTH BEACH SHOWOFF
The new Sagamore hotel loves the spotlight


Move over Delano. South Beach’s new Sagamore hotel threatens to steal the thunder of its hipster neighbors with witty design, plush rooms, and a stunning art collection. After rehabbing the 1948 oceanfront property, Sagamore’s owners, former art dealers, filled its bright white gallerylike ground floor with an impressive array of contemporary artwork. Ninety-three comfortable suites leave minimalism to the lobby in favor of rich, slightly retro furnishings. Sixteen two-story bungalows and eight rooftop penthouses pamper with sprawling quarters. No wonder a parade of celebs, including Will Smith and Tony Bennett, has already checked in. Rooms from $215. (877) 242-6673, www.sagamorehotel.com. —
