I just stayed at the Richmond Hotel in Miami Beach. It was my third choice in my Internet search(not having been here before ), but I'm glad I ended up here. As promised, the hotel is located right on the beach. However, the pool area behind the hotel is so attractive and quiet, I decided to spend some of my time there instead of going to the beach. The large pool is great for swimming, the jacuzzi generously spaced with good jets, nice lounge chairs with new pads, and the entire place immaculate. The tropical garden is beautifully landscaped, then you pass through a charming wooden gate to go right to the boardwalk and then a large beach. The hotel does not have its own chairs on the beach, but you can rent one for the day for $10. The hotel is older but has been nicely updated. The rooms are large and have good amenities, including a hair dryer and ironing board. I took a cruise from here and got a cab to the cruise port for $20. There is a small restaurant for breakfast and dinner, the generous breakfast special was about $8, including coffee. Seating is inside or out, nice on a warm day. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The price for the hotel was reasonable compared to others, in general Miami Beach is very expensive, especially during spring break! Right in front of the hotel, on lively Collins Ave., you can find several restaurants. Nearby, within a 15-min. walk, are several areas with nice restaurants and lots of shopping.
Compared to other nearby hotels, the Richmond was quiet (you could hear the others' loud outdoor music when walking by on the boardwalk), not too many young people partying when I was there.
I felt comfortable and safe as a single woman traveller being in the hotel and in that area of town, but didn't venture out late at night.
I decided to stay there again after my cruise and was glad I did.
