April 18, 2006 – Desires Hotels™, the boutique division of Tecton Hospitality,
announced today that it has signed a contract to manage the Sagamore Hotel
in Miami Beach, Fla.
Built in 1948 by local architect Albert Anis, the Sagamore Hotel was recently renovated in 2001 and has a post modern Miami architecture style. With its upscale collection of 93 boutique accommodations, the hotel features one- and two-bedroom suites, 16 two-story oceanside garden bungalows and eight rooftop penthouses, including a three-bedroom suite with a private oceanfront sundeck.
