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.

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

Good price & location - basic

I arrived couple hours before the 4pm check in but luckly the room was ready, also they have somewhere to store luggage on the check out day. The walls are very thin!! Was going to say air conditioning was noisy but in end was glad as drowed out some of the noise from the next door room. (There was a connecting door that was locked, heard everything). Nice to have a pool with loungers for a chilled & direct access onto the beach. Had breakfast one day, pretty basic but good. Ended up going to the (24hr) cafe/restaurant/bar across the road for brunches instead. Though thing to note that this & the pool closes at 7pm. It's a very quiet hotel, suppose good to get away from it all when you hear the next door ones down the road. Good location and good walking to everywhere from here. Good for what you pay for.

beachfront bliss

Let me start with the less than 5 stars. The wall are very thin. You can hear everything from your neighbors, but with very minimal time spent in the room it was acceptable. The staff (front, pool,kitchen) were amazing. They were not only helpful but fun. The beach is right out the back gate and the property is beautiful. Location is prefect, 2 blocks to Lincoln Ave and a plethora of bars and restaurants within easy walking distance and bus stop is also right out front. I added two extra nights to my stay, I enjoyed the hotel and staff that much !! Will stay again without question !! Excellent hotel for the price !!

Staying for the location

Pretty bare bones hotel, but in a great location. Nice pool. Location right on the beach side of the road and in the center of everything South Beach. Comfy bed and room was clean. Staff was super friendly and prompt. Paper thin walls (at least on the first floor.) That meant all noises next door at all hours and even through the vents above. If it wasn't for the fact I had an early flight and the room next door was partying all night, probably not a big deal - but worth noting. Probably could avoid that by specifically asking for a higher floor room and one that doesn't adjoin. For what we were looking for in our price range - not a bad little hotel with basic rooms and amenities.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The hotel has no vending machines - so bring your own waters and use the fridge (if your room has one.) Mine did, the people I traveled with did not.

vacation

Well I'm sorry to say I don't have too many good things to say about this hotel except for the location is great . Checked in got to the room which was very small with old furnishings, looked kind of dingey. We unpacked and hung our things then sat down on my side of the bed which { they gave us a full size bed for 2 adult females should of given a room with @ least a king or 2 fulls } was very springy so I lyed down to check the comfort level of the bed FORGET IT the mattress must be 25 years old so uncomfortable, so I was concerned about being able to sleep on it, then my room mate sits on her side of the bed and immediately smelled vomit . So I walked over to her side of the bed and sure enough strong smell of vomit well that about did it for me !! Went down to the front desk and told them and they immediately assigned us another room no ?'s asked ! The other room was just as small but did have a more comfortable queen size bed but room was also a bit dingey. Did not get offered the complimentry drink that many talk about in their reviews and also they don't offer any complimentry continental or breakfast buffet that some also boast about in reviews they must be friends of owners because I don't see how this hotel can get some of the grand reviews that people wrote . Don't be fooled for your money like I was. I thought the pool area seemed very nice until I layed out on a lounger for a little while and ended up getting bit from the little red ants that are all over the deck area of the pool. this property does not hose down and spray there pool area when closing it for the night I watched them every night they just take the cushions off the lounge chairs and throw them in the sheds until the next morning those were also disgustingly dirty as well. They don't physically clean anything at this hotel I will NEVER stay at this property again.To bad they are going to lose out because I stay on the beach @ least twice a year !

Excellent location, good staff, night staff supersedes expectation, pool and jacuzzi Are well maintained and heated, housekeeping is slow, but accommodating if calked upon, private 5th floor sun deck is ideal for peaceful reading and sunbathing. All in all excellent value.
