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.

vacation

Well I'm sorry to say I don't have too many good things to say about this hotel except for the location is great . Checked in got to the room which was very small with old furnishings, looked kind of dingey. We unpacked and hung our things then sat down on my side of the bed which { they gave us a full size bed for 2 adult females should of given a room with @ least a king or 2 fulls } was very springy so I lyed down to check the comfort level of the bed FORGET IT the mattress must be 25 years old so uncomfortable, so I was concerned about being able to sleep on it, then my room mate sits on her side of the bed and immediately smelled vomit . So I walked over to her side of the bed and sure enough strong smell of vomit well that about did it for me !! Went down to the front desk and told them and they immediately assigned us another room no ?'s asked ! The other room was just as small but did have a more comfortable queen size bed but room was also a bit dingey. Did not get offered the complimentry drink that many talk about in their reviews and also they don't offer any complimentry continental or breakfast buffet that some also boast about in reviews they must be friends of owners because I don't see how this hotel can get some of the grand reviews that people wrote . Don't be fooled for your money like I was. I thought the pool area seemed very nice until I layed out on a lounger for a little while and ended up getting bit from the little red ants that are all over the deck area of the pool. this property does not hose down and spray there pool area when closing it for the night I watched them every night they just take the cushions off the lounge chairs and throw them in the sheds until the next morning those were also disgustingly dirty as well. They don't physically clean anything at this hotel I will NEVER stay at this property again.To bad they are going to lose out because I stay on the beach @ least twice a year !

nice place for short stay

room was clean and small. good enough for two people. pool area was comfy and small. I liked that it was a little off ocean drive so stay was quiet and relaxing and not too many guest walking around or too noisy. walking distance from beach! only wish you didn't have to pay for beach chairs if you are staying at the hotel. ive traveled a lot and its usually a given. but overall a good hotel.

Great location but not a room to spend time in.

Our bathroom and room were not cleaned thoroughly, the wireless wasn't working most of the time, the tv is small. Towels were missing everyday and had to request them. Staff seemed frazzled and unmotivated to make customer service a priority.

Relaxing and tranquil

The facility was very comfortable, tranquil and clean. Loved the pool area which had beautiful trees that provided plenty of shade. The staff was extremely helpful and pleasant. Would highly recommend.

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.

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.
