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.

Never Again

Walls are paper thin. People were vulgar in rooms next door and I had to switch rooms. Customer service was poor. Amenities are poor. Not even free Wifi. Pool is not clean. No service by the pool. Just a spring break place.

Pretty Good for the Price

I haven't stayed at a fancy hotel or anything above 3 stars in Miami. I don't go for the hotel, but for the beach and nightlife. There are so many options in Miami that I'm sure there are better hotels, but for the price I got it for I couldn't have had the best time. The pool was nice and clean. No music and pretty much dead during the day, but it's good if you're looking to relax. The rooms were neat and weren't gross. My suggestion is to update. The hotel when you walk in seems so nice, but the bedrooms are so out of date it's scary. The toilet was old school. Like the ones you use your feet to flush because you don't want to touch the handle. The bathroom was outdated overall. The television set was small, but at least it wasn't a box. Cleaning ladies came everyday like clockwork, but they would sometimes forget about putting towels or toilet paper. All in all though, I had a great time. My friend and I stayed for 8 days and had a blast.

Great South Beach location

Nice hotel. Very friendly staff; i had brought a friend down with an extra car and the valet was very nice in negotiating a lower rate for my friends car since they werent staying. Just a couple blocks from all the best shopping, resturaunts, nightclubs in SOBE. Beautiful pool/hottub area with beach access.. only complaint is that the pool area and beach access are closed way too early in the night.

Solicitor friendly?

They need to have a tighter security from food delivery solicitor that give out flyer from underneath the door.
