Nautilus Sonesta Miami Beach

Miami’s Mid-century modern Nautilus Hotel to convert to The James brand

Sonesta has taken over management of the 250-key Nautilus Hotel on Collins Avenue – previously managed by Arlo Hotels – and renaming it Nautilus Sonesta Miami Beach. Expected to undergo an extensive renovation, by 2025 it will be transformed into The James Miami Beach. The James is a high-end lifestyle brand, reintroduced by Sonesta earlier this year, offering a sophisticated urban retreat that appeals to a broad, affluent and multigenerational audience.

The Nautilus originally opened in 1951 and was designed by Morris Lapidus, a prolific architect behind several hotel properties that line the shores of Miami Beach.
