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.

Cool Miami vibe. Woke up feeling like I'd landed in a motel on the moon with the retro-modern decor. Loved the pool with the heart shaped floats. We will def return!! Clean, friendly, poolside bar, hammocks.... all you need!

Visiting Miami between Christmas & New Year, hiked rates at our preferred South Beach locations meant options there were way over budget. I'm so glad we found The Vagabond as a great, budget friendly alternative in the up and coming MIMO district. You can clearly see the bones

We strive to provide great value to our guests! Thank you so much for staying with us over the holiday season and we hope you return soon. We are indeed very centrally located - 10 minutes to Wynwood/Design District, feet on sand in less than 10 minutes and of course South Beach is only 20 minutes away.

We booked a last minute, short trip to Miami and found this hotel on trip advisor. Very cute, nicely renovated, great pool area, good location with numerous restaurants within walking distance. 15 minute drive to Miami Beach but we preferred to lie around the pool and only

Glad you enjoyed lounging by the pool and took the time to explore the great restaurants in our neighborhood! As far as our complimentary breakfast, it's not totally a continental breakfast but rather a basic one which comprises of Coffee/Tea/OJ, cereal, yogurt, bagels, cream cheese, butter and jam and oranges. Hope you return soon!

We recently stayed at the Vagabond for two nights. It was a great little motel in Mimo - very botique. If you love mid-century modern this hotel is for you. We visited several nearby restaurants in the up-and-coming area. We also easily accessed the beaches and South Beach

The rooms are around a nice pool, but a DJ is brought in nightly, 6-11 ( actually 11:30 one night) poolside and the loud music commences to throb. They are aiming for a young, singles clientele. The manager was friendly and sympathetic when we complained about the noise, but did

Firstly let me apologize for your experience at the hotel. I would love to know who actually made the ridiculous statement that we are catering to a younger crowd and no longer interested in welcoming families and older travelers, that could not be further from the truth. The majority of our guests are business travelers, families and “older” guests and we want to make sure that their stay is enjoyable and peaceful. We do provide entertainment on Friday and Saturday nights but the music level is usually closely monitored and we make sure that it is lowered at 11 pm and totally turned off at midnight. I sincerely hope you give us a second chance and Feel free to reach out to me directly should you have any questions or issues.

Your best chance for answering these questions is calling directly to the Hotel. I don’t think they have shuttles to transport to the airport. But asking would be the recommended course of action. I’m sure they’ll accommodate you if they have the space for an early check-in. They’re very friendly & helpful. If not, they’ll keep your luggage until their official time. In the meantime you can walk around & will find great places for lunch, wine or just visit an attraction nearby. Uber & Lyft are easy to access right in front of the main office. Also, you can access the bar or restaurant, if they’re opened... ask Salomon for a great cocktail or nice beer at the poolside bar!

Please keep in mind that we do not have kitchenettes in our rooms. Our Suites have a small fridge and a Keurig Coffee machine with Starbucks coffee pods. We do offer complimentary continental breakfast. Please call the hotel at 305-400-8420 and leave your number and I would be happy to call you back to discuss your needs and our availability.
