Sixty Hotels, the company run by the founding family of Thompson Hotels, reopened Miami's Nautilus hotel in Miami earlier this week.

The hotel, designed by noted architect Morris Lapidus, has 250 rooms as well as a heated salt-water pool and a gym. The property also renovated its iconic Driftwood Room.

Sixty Hotels said last year that it would take over what was originally opened in the 1950s as the Nautilus but which recently operated as the Continental South Beach.

Sixty Hotels is operated by the Pomeranc family, founders of the Thompson Hotels lifestyle chain. The Pomerancs sold their stake in Thompson parent Commune Hotels in 2013.
