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.

we enjoyed ourselves

Despite all the other reviews I read after I booked the hotel I was very nervous about staying there. I am so very glad we did!!! The location is perfect, beautiful and clean, and the service was very good. The water issues were normal, once you figure out the hot and the cold u can have an ideal shower... food was great and the everything in walking distance was even better!! I will come back here if I have another miami trip!!

Great vacation spot

It was a very pleasant experience from the time we arrived through departure. The hotel staff was very friendly and extremely professional. Our room was clean and more than adequate in terms of space. We made use of the pool, restaurant, and easy access to the beach and boardwalk areas. During the evenings we took advantage of the hotel's close proximity to retail stores and restaurants. When we visit Miami Beach next year we will be staying at the Richmond Hotel!

Great Location, Decent Hotel

We were there for a mini-vacation. The location was perfect. It was very close to plenty of food and activity options, including being right on the beach! It was on the main strip, but in a place where the activity was not as high, so you could walk to where everything was, but escape to a quieter environment for rest. The rooms were a bit small and dated, but the location mostly compensated for what the actual room lacked.

okay hotel, kind of pricy

Nice location on South Beach, but rooms were very small and very tired. The pool and access to the beach were wonderful. Parking was expensive, there was good customer service. This is not the place for small children, there were no cribs or a pack-n-play and furnishings in the room were a death trap for small children. If you were young and single, the place to be, $$ for what you get.
