This place is the bomb! Loved it! Back in the 90s we lived on South Beach. We hadn't been back in years and went down for just one night to visit a friend. We made a last-minute decision to get a room (through Priceline) and lucked out with the Riviera. Although, it's a bit north of the cluster of bars and restaurants in "mid-beach" (say, 12th-14th streets) it's a very pleasant 15 minute walk down Washington or Collins and it was nice to head back north a bit to the quieter end of South Beach after a night of bar-hopping.
Pedro T. at the front desk could not have been more welcoming and friendly. The lobby is very hip. The back bar/restaurant is great for hanging out for coffee or a drink. The views from the rooftop pool are fantastic. We slept beautifully in the king-size bed until minutes before check-out. We just didn't want to leave. The room was spotless. I have only great things to say about the place. I followed up with a phone call shortly afterwards to ask a billing question and Yolanda on the phone was so friendly and gracious.
Going forward we have decided to make annual visits to Miami Beach to keep up with our old friends from the 90s and we have found our place to stay--The Riviera!
