Tourists can't beat the location. The Richmond is only three blocks from Lincoln Road, and guests can walk to bars, clubs, and shopping.
At 18th and Collins Avenue, the quiet little beachside Richmond is beside some of the biggest, swankiest party hotels in South Beach, such as the Delano, the Sagamore, the Raleigh, the National, and Shore Club.
Near some of our favorite restaurants and shops on Lincoln Road (about three blocks away), the Richmond is ideally located.
The decorating is retro style, cheaply done. Some "king" beds are simply two twins pushed together.
Room are basic with whites and light wood furniture, and have Art Deco-inspired touches in the lamps, clock, art work, and curtains.
The pool, hot tub, and lush yard are a great deal for the price. Avoid the greasy restaurant.
The Richmond is a cheap, beachside mom-and-pop resort beside the boutique bigwigs in a prime party location -- but there's a catch. Although it has a large pool, its rooms are stale-smelling, gratuitously stained, and have ""king" beds" that are only two twin beds pushed together.
