This intimate, Art Deco original is near all the best of South Beach

The Richmond bills itself as "Miami Beach's friendliest hotel." The same family has operated the business since it opened its doors in 1941, and the 92-room property is a local favorite. The oceanfront hotel and its neon-flooded exterior and original terrazzo floors fit in with its Art Deco neighbors. South Beach clubs, restaurants and shops are only a stroll away. Lush greenery delivers a sense of Hollywood glamour.

Highlights
  • Family-run Art Deco hotel
  • Beach path
  • Within walking distance to Ocean Drive, Lincoln Road and Collins Avenue
  • Heated outdoor pool surrounded by lush gardens
  • Rooftop terrace and heated half moon spa and coconut palm patio
Rooms

Room decor throws nods to old-world Florida with the vintage postcard-type framed prints and palm printed curtains as focal points. Look for retro details, too, such as Art Deco floor lamps, seafoam- and black-colored tile bathrooms, a 1930s-inspired clock, blond oak headboards and accent pieces. In case of a rain shower, which is common in South Florida, grab the red umbrella in the closet. Wi-Fi and high-speed Internet can be accessed for an additional charge.

Features

The Richmond's boutique identity adds to its intimacy. Nice touches include a cement path leading to a wood boardwalk and a half-moon spa tub strategically placed in front of a winding stream. On the rooftop terrace and solarium, take in the neon lights from South Beach.  An on-site cafe serves breakfast until mid-afternoon, and by night, guests can sip cocktails on the front porch.

Never Again

Walls are paper thin. People were vulgar in rooms next door and I had to switch rooms. Customer service was poor. Amenities are poor. Not even free Wifi. Pool is not clean. No service by the pool. Just a spring break place.

We will return!

This hotel is right on the beach and close to Lincoln Road. We were able to walk everywhere! Great drinks - mojitos and pina colada were amazing! Fresh fish lunch was a thumbs up! Very quiet, lush and tropical pool! No kids - very restful. We will return!

Not as expected

The location is wonderful and there is a beautiful pool and great beach access. Our room however had the ceiling in the bath room falling in, cracked paint everywhere, not clean, sand in the tub and looked like it needed a serious refresh. Such an amazing location that just seems very neglected and in need of investment to revitalize a great old property.

OLA restaurant is amazing and just a short walk away - must go location with dining outside and creative, fresh food options. Best part of the stay

Horrible!!! Worst place I've ever stayed

First off, they charged my fiance's credit card twice, fire the security deposit. The front desk lady did not know what she was doing, stated that the card he gave did not go through when it was not true... so he gave another credit card...she stated the same thing... but the her Co-worker said she was doing something wrong. Well we go to the room, and it's musty and very small... very much in need of an update.... but it was not what I paid for. I called the front desk, they agreed they put us in the wrong room, we go back downstairs with all the luggage, to get the keys to the right room. Now, we get to the right room and the sheets are dirty, the bathroom is filthy. I had to basically tell them all weekend to clean that bathroom. The mattress was super lumpy, we had no refrigerator when we were suppose to have one cause our friends had the same room and they had one. Then I'm naked, changing to go take a shower and someone walks into my room. They booked someone else in our hotel room. Never again will i stay there, food was disgusting nowhere near what we paid for. The only good thing and I mean only... is that the beach was directly behind the pool, but the pool tiles were filthy. Trust me on this people, this hotel looks much better in pictures.

There are really nice places to eat by Ocean Drive, try not to eat on Collins Ave... too expensive and not worth it.

stayed one night

Staff was friendly, Rooms were outdated. For the value it was nice but the pool area and restaurant left something to be desired. Was not impressed. i probably would have spent the extra money to stay elsewhere
