Reviews Summary
This summary was created by AI, based on recent reviews.
Powered by AI
Riviera Suites South Beach is celebrated for its elegant atmosphere and cleanliness, with many guests finding the welcoming vibe a highlight of their stay. While the rooms are generally regarded as clean and spacious, some visitors feel they could benefit from modernization and improved lighting. The hotel's location earns high marks for its proximity to Miami Beach and local attractions, although the nearby noise may detract from the experience for some. The staff's friendliness and helpfulness are frequently commended, yet there are occasional comments about the need for more prompt service. Value-wise, guests appreciate the affordable rates, but unexpected charges have caused some to question the overall value. Additionally, while the cleanliness of the hotel is a standout feature, the lack of certain amenities, such as complimentary water and coffee makers, has been noted by guests seeking a more inclusive experience.

We paid our deposit using one of our credit cards. When we arrived in December we did not have the credit card we used for the deposit. We used another credit card to pay the balance but they said it need it to be the same credit card so we paid the full amount using a new credit card and they were supposed to refund our money in the next few days! Guess what happened? They did not make the refund to the bank and it is impossible to call the hotel as they never answer. I have sent a lot of emails to the Manager and he sent us a screen shot showing the refund but it is from a spread sheet. He just said they did the refund and so sorry if other institutions are not giving us the money back! I am very disappointed because we have an exceptional credit score and the bank can not help us! It is very frustrating!

This is an excellent hotel close to Ocean Drive. Very comfortable rooms. There is an outdoor bar/cafe too. Live music too, certainly last night. Very friendly staff. We would recommend this hotel for a visit to Miami and would love to come back.

BEWARE!!! They're scamming people. They charged my credit card for the minibar, without my authorization, for purchases that I did not make. This was after they printed a receipt stating my balance owing was "0". Why do you keep doing this to people??? I've ready the same thing has happened to many others. You better find another system for keeping track. And, of course, they do NOT reply to any phone calls or emails. Pretty pathetic customer service from Mark Kelly (GM). Definitely won't be recommending this place unless I receive some compensation (ie. my money they owe me).

Stayed here for Christmas! I was 100% satisfied with the location, my room, the management, and the cappuccino :) The hotel is very cute, and has a rooftop deck with a pool. The managers Priscilla and Mark were so kind to me and seem to genuinely care about their guests experience. I was greeted by Mark the day I arrived - and he was super cool! He helped me figure out parking in the area, and also made sure I had a nice room with a great balcony. I practiced yoga on my balcony many mornings and Loved it! I also met the assistant manager, Priscilla on Christmas eve. Priscilla was very kind - she listens and cares about her guests. She noticed that I was having a hard time with some things and she took the time to chat with me. She is certainly a person with dignity and compassion. For the price I paid per night I was more than happy with my stay. So if you see these room rates for a unbelievably low price (150 per night or below) don't wait to book....I have stayed at many boutique hotels in Miami/SoBe and this one was one of the best. Traveler tips: If you are renting a car, avoid electric vehicles because there are no convenient charging stations nearby. Parking in the area is complicated but doable, just pay attention to the signs. There is absolutely no free parking anywhere but you can park in the parking deck for $40 per day or $4 per hour on the street Walk into Sweet Liberty and see if you can catch a cool vibe and a bite to eat, No Cover and walking distance from hotel The beach is a super quick 4 min walk from hotel

As a hospitality expert, my trip was saved by 3 front desk ambassadors . I was in a travel dilemma with my credit card and I explained the situation before arrival and the agents were helpful . Travel mishaps are difficult in the holidays and these service agents help made it easy. Read the names Chrstsy, Priscilla, Cesarina. I hope spelled it correctly . The check out was almost perfect. Other than that , IM COMING BACK

We just need to thank Priscilla, supervisor at the hotel, for such exemplary help and advice when it was needed. She is marvellous and such a credit to the hotel. The hotel itself, clean and efficient.

Room was very clean, no carpet(good) The housekeeping staff and all staff we met were friendly. The shower, LOW water pressure. The lobby of building One and the hallway smelled moldy. Building is old, somewhat reasonably maintained. Elevator went out for about 4 hours, and We learned the stairs were clean-but many -from 3rd floor

You are lucky to have Andres Felipez from front desk, he really understood my concerns since I was given a non working A/C room, but he was able to move my son and I to a A/C working room! Thank you

My wife booked the Riviera Hotel for us after our cruise and we couldnt been more pleased about our one night stay. Mark Kelly and his staff did everything possible to make our stay a very nice experience. The location is perfect with the outdoor Lincoln mall just 2 blocks away and Miami Beach boardwalk also a short 5 minute walk. Both of their pools (one is a rooftop and the other a secluded boutique) were so well designed and peaceful. We cant recommend the Riviera enough.
