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.

Great Weekend Get Away

Fun, fun, fun... Great pool/bar area, walk to the beach within seconds. The staff was excellent. The night life, shoping and swanky places to eat are right out the front door!!! I'll be back. Thank you Richmond Hotel.

The Plumbing is Terrible

Our t.v. didn't work, so we had to get it replaced. We couldn't take normal showers because the water was either way too hot or too cold. The carpet felt oily and there were stains on the chairs and on the comforter. The only thing I liked about the hotel was the food and the pool area.

Fabulous couple retreat :)

This hotel is a fabulous place! Great location just a short walk to the Lincoln rd mall and close to ocean drive as well. Loads of restaurants and bars, always something going on! The pool area is great and being so close to the beach made it hard to chose which to go too. Being down for the fourth of July was one of the best experiences, the fireworks where absolutely out of this world. It seemed that all of south beach was out to have a good time that night. I would go back and stay at the richmond in a heartbeat. The staff was so helpful and pleasant from the time we arrived to gettin us our cab to the airport to go home. Best vacation yet :)

Great for what we wanted

My wife and I where looking for a quite get-away which is what we got. It is about a 5 minute walk to Lincoln Blvd which has many shops and restaurants. Pretty much every place had a 2 for 1 drink happy hour. The pool is very cozy and a good temprature in the Florida heat. Would have been even more awsome is there was a swim up bar, but lets not get too crazy. The bar is just inside the hotel a few feet away from the pool. The only "complaint" and it was really a non factor, is that it was easy to here what was going on in the hallway or next room over being that the walls are paper thin, but it was easy for us to deal with.

decent comfortable hotel with good location

Good location as described. In the center of Art Deco area. Easy to walk to Lincoln Ave and other places to do shopping and dining. Very friendly staff and good facilities. Large pool and massage pool without being too crowded. It was a decent and classy hotel. We enjoyed our stay.
