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.

The Richmond Hotel - Miami, FL

For the price, the Richmond Hotel is one of the best hotels in South Beach to stay at if you simply want a good, clean, safe hotel in a great location without spending a fortune. Rooms are basic, clean and still retain the charm of its past. The location is great as it is within a short walking distance to the strip on A1A/Ocean Drive and for proximity to the beach...it can't be beat! If you're not up for the beach, the pool and hot tub provide an excellent space to relax under beautiful palm trees. Also, if you need anything such as sun screen, snacks, water, etc., there is a Walgreen's just two short blocks away.

Head to the Walgreen's two short blocks away for water, snacks, sunscreen, etc. The Hotel does not have a store inside of it and the food there is priced high for what it is.

exactly what I needed

The Richmond was pretty perfect for what we were looking for. A great price, barefoot walk to the beach, and lovely poolside lounging! The Richmond may have it's tiny quirks, but I wholly recommend it. Totally going back.

cute'n'cozy

The hotel location was perfect. It was walking distance to everything. The staff was friendly and accommidable. The rooms were a decent size, well kept and cute. The pool and jacuzzi were warm and inviting and led straight to the beach. Loved my whole trip! Would definitely stay there again!

Needs a little TLC

The hotel just needs an uplift. The room was clean, however we had to prop our window open with an ironing board, the bath tub did not drain, and the ice machine was broken. There was no counter space to get ready for the evening, and the pool looked a little dirty. The staff was very helpful though when asked for anything and the location was great and close enough to shopping and restaurants.

Good Service, below avg accomodations

They are very nice there, and the lobby is quite fancy, a good 1st impression. Sadly, its sort of downhill from there - the rooms are old hardwood, the bathroom had dated and undersized fixtures. The pool area is quite nice, and there is direct beach access, so if you don't plan on staying in the room too much, it is good value for the beach front. Be prepared to be awoken by the noisy elevator if you're room is close to it.

Dated but nice

PROS: The hotel is in a great location (central to EVERYTHING on South Beach); Oceanfront with a pool and hot tub; Friendly & accommodating staff; Priced exceptionally well for location & amenities; Quiet; Got there early (10 AM) and the room was already ready; Bartender & restaurant staff we're very nice (and made really good drinks) CONS: Some of the facilities (lobby, pool deck, and hotel rooms mostly) can come off as a little dated and in need of refurbishment; the pool's filter system wasn't working properly when we were there, so the deep end sometimes had a weird pollen film on it; the hotel doesn't have it's own chairs for the beach All in all it was exactly what we were looking for--something centrally located with the essential amenities (pool, beach access, close to night life) for a moderate price. Happy to recommend to those looking to stay in the heart of South Beach on a budget.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Take the Miami Airport Flyer (bus route 150) to and from the airport. It's only $2.35/person (as of Oct. 2010) and it took only slightly longer than the $32+ cab ride (it also stops directly across the street from the hotel). The Miami Beach Local Shuttle also loops around Miami Beach for $0.25.
