Miami’s Nautilus Hotel joins Arlo brand

The Arlo Hotels brand has welcomed its first property outside of New York City: the Nautilus Hotel in South Beach, Miami. Now called Nautilus by Arlo, the eight-story, 250-room beachfront hotel features a 1,890-square-foot heated saltwater pool with an underwater sound system, the Mediterranean restaurant Nautilus Cabana Club and its 2,000-square-foot outdoor dining terrace and 12,000 square feet of outdoor event space.

The Nautilus Hotel first entered the South Beach market in 1951 and has been owned by the real estate developer and investment firm Quadrum Global since 2011. A few years after acquiring the hotel, the company oversaw a multimillion-dollar renovation to restore the property. With the rebranding, the hotel joins Quadrum Global’s own hotel management platform and brand Arlo Hotels.

The Nautilus by Arlo will receive minor improvements with the rebranding, including a redesign of its lobby and public spaces to allow for communal co-working areas and local programming. Arlo’s New York City-based collaborators Priority Bicycles, Blind Barber and Farm to People also will expand to the Nautilus. Unlike the "micro" concepts featured at Arlo’s two New York-based locations, the Miami property will offer the collection’s first standard-sized hotel guestrooms.

“This property will be an evolution of the Arlo experience, maintaining the same core brand identity, while also providing guests with more space, amenities and programming for a new take on Miami,” Foiz Ahmed, president of Quadrum Global’s hospitality division, said in a statement.

Quadrum Global is an international company that focuses on value-add opportunities. Introduced in 2016, the Arlo Hotels brand includes two other properties: Arlo SoHo and Arlo NoMad, both in New York City.
