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.

Can't wait to go back!

Nothing GLAM, just good, CLEAN, nice hotel visit. Walk to SoBe, walk to Lincoln Mall, walk to parks, walk to museum, lovely pool and yard area right off ocean. In house cafe delightful! again, if you want glam food, go to SoBe; if you want a great meal at a good price served by wonderful staff in a lovely setting, eat there.

Great Trip

The location of the hotel is great since it's right on the beach and close to dining, shopping, and nightlife. The staff went above and beyond to make us happy. We were able to leave our bags in the hotel before checking in since we arrived at 11am, and then we were able to check in the room at 2pm instead of at 4pm. Also since we had a late flight we were able to check out one hour later and leave our bags again. The room was clean and cleaning service came everyday. The only bad thing was the thin walls and a unstable hotel's restaurant hours.

In Need of Remodeling

Hotel was average, staff was friendly but there was not even water in the fridge or in the room and room service did not deliver anything. I think there were bed bugs because I got some bites. Hotel definitely needs to be remodeled!!! But close distance to all great places and room was clean.

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.
