It’s almost that time of the year to escape to Miami Beach to get away from those frigid winter temperatures, and there’s a new hotel in South Beach. Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel, located in the Art Deco District and housed in a beautiful 1950s building by architect Morris Lapidus is finally up and running. SIXTY Hotels restored the structure to its former glory, giving it a contemporary touch.
Situated on Collins and 18th Street, Nautilus, a SIXTY Hotel stretches from Collins Avenue all the way out to the beach, giving guests the ease of walking out of the hotel and on to the beach. The decor transports guests back to a time when jet setters traveled around the world in style, infusing the rooms with “mid-century, jet-set style” furniture and combining it with Art Deco and contemporary pieces that pay homage to the hotel’s proximity to the beach. The hotel’s integrity remains, such as the neo baroque designs that Lapidus incorporated into the hotel and the landmarked “stairway to nowhere.”
Enter the eight-story building and discover 25-foot high ceilings on your way to check in. After, walk through the sunken lobby bar. From there, gallery space will exhibit the latest voices in art. In the mood for a bite? Head over to the Driftwood Room, helmed by chef Alex Guarnaschelli. When you want to bask in the Miami Beach sun, there’s Nautilus Cabana Club to take care of all your needs.
With 250 rooms that feature 48-inch flat screens, vintage-style mini bar chests, and custom artwork from notable American photographer Sante D’Orazio, you’ll feel like you’re in a luxurious home away from home.
