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.

what a find

Ideally located, near the amazing Miami Beach, Maxine's and surrounded by lots of excellent shopping choices. it was a great atmosphere with its own pool. Loved the deco decor but being in the the middle of a techno music festival wasn't our thing. Still the atmosphere was great. Would appreciate easy and cheap access to tea or coffee.

South Beach Classic

Reminds of a European hotel. Smaller rooms with stylish furniture. It is a classic south beach hotel with great beach access. It is an older property but has WiFi service for a daily fee.

Where's the bar?

We liked the location but not the lack of a place to get a drink in the evenings. The staff was friendly, but I was not interested in paying another 100 dollars a night for an ocean view.

Richmond Hotel in Miami

The hotel is okay not great but good enough. I requested for 2 queen beds and they gave us 1 king size. They told us that we need to move or separate the beds to make it 2 single ones. Why we have to do it, the good thing I saw 1 helper and called her. The set up of the bed is not condusive for 2 beds because of the frame.

Worst hotel ever

The staff was unfriendly, the rooms are small and you can hear the next door neighbours. The rooms that they have are only with queen size beds. The best thing is the tv and the robes. The rest of the hotel is horrible and parking is 35 dollars. Totally not worthed.

Unbeatable location for the price"

Everything I expected and more - we we're a big group - about 20 - had no problems whatsoever! Will definitely go back and use the Richmond as our Miami home base!

Terrible!

This was one of the worst hotels I've seen. The lobby was nice and clean but the room and hallways were another story. The carpet was stained, the refrigerator was dirty, the vents were packed with dust, the bathroom was outdated with a stained toilet that looked like it belonged in a public restroom.

Me, bahbah, and the beach!

The room was quite small. It contained dirty furniture in which my girlfriend and I were afraid to sit. The view from our room was a nice view of the hotel next door, which was much nicer I might add. The walls are paper thin, and be prepared to hear everybody's conversations throughout the early morning and late night. The pool area was small as well, but who needs the pool when the beach is right there. The best part of this hotel was it's location. The front desk staff was very helpful, however the room service employees didn't seem to do their jobs (change towel, provide soap, shampoo or conditioner). The hotel's location is also great as we didn't have to drive anywhere. Everything was within a mile's distance of the hotel.

Very nice

We stayed a couple of nights in Miami and we enjoyed this place. It's not a five star rate because it's not a top class hotel BUT the location is very accepatble (10 minutes from ocean drive and 50 yards from the beach). Personel is very friendly. Rooms are a little old but ok. So, to sum up it's a perfect hotel to enjoy Miami if you're not the kind of person who like to stay at the hotel and enjoy a lot of services. Valet parking is 35$ a day plus tax... so I recommend to use the parking lot located at the intersection of 21st and collins ave (5 minutes) and u save 20$ a day.
