South Beach is a very lively and potentially hectic place. However the Riviere offers quite a tranquil atmosphere.
My room was quite basic, but pretty spacious. It had a tv and wifi, and a clean toilet.
As for the location, you're not in the heart of the South Beach action. It's a 10 minute walk from Lincoln Road Mall, and a 7 to 10 minute walk from all the bars and restaurants on Ocean Drive. Also the Hotel itself is not directly on the beach - so you'll have to cross Collins Avenue and walk a couple minutes to see the sand. . .that might be an issue for people wanting that beach holiday feeling.
Regarding the service, it was okay. The staff were neither rude nor over enthusiastic.However one guy at reception was very nice - he carried all our luggage from our car straight to our room. Regarding cars, the hotel does not have its own car park, but has a valet agreement with a nearby garage, so you'll have to pay approx $15 per day (which is pretty normal for South Beach).
In summary, this hotel was adequate, and did the job. My stay was pleasant without being spectacular. If you want somewhere quiet to stay, in an otherwise busy area, this might be a good place for you.
