We stayed only one night and two days in Richmond, and our experience was extremely pleasant. Before the Richmond we stayed a week in the more upscale and more expensive hotel across the street, and although the service was friendly everywhere- we felt more comfortable and better served in Richmond. Hospitable is the best word to describe them, from the super nice gentlemen at the front desk to the guy who brings towels at the pool ,and the valet who tells you where you can eat good Cuban or buy the postcards. We felt warmed and welcomed by the staff.
It seems that in Richmond hotel, they have tons experiences as hoteliers. You can just sense how they manage every little thing on the go. They are not " trying too hard"- everything that should be in the manners is juts there.
The hotel is classic art deco,extremely charming - right on the beach and the (busy) Colins ave. The garden with the pool and (non-heated) jacuzzi is the most pleasant place to be at. I haven't felt that relaxed in the long time like my two afternoons by the Richmond's pool.
Charming execs to the beach right from the hotel's backyard- where you can purchase chairs and umbrellas from outside vendors ( Hotel will make sure you don't get charged more than certain, reasonable amount) Richmond provides beach towels.
The rooms are very basic and clean.
The only thing that didn't work for us- was the size of the room. We were there as the family of 3 ,with the 3 year old and the room was quite small for us. The hotel is just build that way- not much could be done about it.
Nevertheless if you are traveling as a couple or alone- I would recommend staying in Richmond.
They know their business, yet they are non-pretentious, you would feel good there.
