The hotel is named after Julia Tuttle - the "Mother of Miami", who was the city's founder - and is owned by SMS Lodging.

Located between 3rd and 4th Streets on Collins Avenue, one block from the beach, the property will feature 29 guest rooms, each fitted with custom-designed furnishings, coral and grey accents, and solid wood flooring, as well as artwork from local artists throughout the rooms and public space.

The interior of the hotel, designed by Stephen Busto, will feature a "chic modern lobby complemented by a few features from its original design that includes the authentic Cuban tile flooring".

The Julia's exterior has been restored to retain a traditional dating back to its original build in the 1930s.

The property will offer a 24-hour front desk, free wifi, a daily complimentary wine and cheese happy hour and French continental breakfast.

"The SoFi neighbourhood is an ideal area for The Julia, as it offers the best of South Beach with a neighbourhood vibe," said Gustaf Arnoldsson, CFO of SMS Lodging. "We are confident that the hotel's prime location just steps from the beach and within walking distance to great shopping, nightlife, and cuisine will be a significant draw for travellers."
