Blending classic sophistication and contemporary chic, the Riviera South Beach hotel offers stylish one-bedroom apartment-like accommodations with gourmet kitchens, separate living and dining areas at affordable hotel room prices. The Miami Beach 1940s classic jewel is now transformed into a boutique hideaway for jetsetters and trendsetters alike. Credit card is required upon check-in. No cash deposits are accepted. The hotel will authorize your credit card at check in for up to $100 per night of stay in addition to nightly room rate. Please understand that if you are using a "Check Card", this authorization will limit your card use for up to 10 days or until your issuing bank releases the authorization hold. The hotel will charge a resort fee of $15 plus tax per night.

Must be at least 18 years of age to check-in.

Please be advised, our airport shuttle's last pickup from Miami International Airport is 6pm on 12/31/11. Due to Miami Beach bridge scheduled closures, we are unable to retrieve guests after this time. We of course begin our normal schedule the following day, 1/1/12.

Fantastic getaway

I love the hotel and the location was only 6.00 cab ride in any direction. I will rebook here for more visits to south beach. My only disappointment was that my room door malfunctioned. I was not able to get into my room after I closed my door. Come to find out, the staff already knew the door had issues but did not report it or bother to tell me. Over all the place was a 4 star for me ;)

Little confusion

When booking my trip I was under the impression the hotel was located at 2000 Liberty Avenue, which it is, but you check in at another building and valet is located there as well. This is a restaurant/bar between buildings 2and 3. They offer the complimentary happy hour for hotel guests, however they do not offer free coffee for hotel guests. I think $7.50 for 3 cups of regular coffee was a bit extreme.

I was told to stay away from Ocean Drive as it is quite pricey for meals. I was charged $15.00 for valet that I did not need just to run in and pick up a salad.

"Rednecks" in the big city

Our stay at the Riviera started off a little rocky, but it was my fault. My husband and I had just debarked from a wonderful cruise around 11:00a, and arrived to check-in at the front desk about noon-ish. I had previously neglected to take notice of the check-in time (3:00p) at the hotel. Oops! The clerk at the front desk said they could store our bags for us until our room was cleaned and opened up. Our bell-hop was extremely kind and informative helping to direct us as to where we could find a store, restaurant, the beach etc., all of which were easily within walking distance. We were also told that there was a good chance that we could check-in early, just not quite THAT early and to check back around 1:30-2:00. We walked down a few blocks and checked out South Beach. Maxine's at the Catilina on 17th was a wonderful place to eat as was Moreno's just downstairs from our room.

Very talented musicians entertained us just outside our room, near Moreno's, in the courtyard in the evenings through their complimentary happy hour. Very fun.

Nice hotel

Terrific location, nice staff and large room. The room was immaculate, quirky, and stylish. I appreciated the SUPER comfy bed, the super shower, and the cold, efficient air conditioning.

Comfortable beds!

I love my mattress at home, and didn't think I could do any better, but as it turns out, the bed I had at the Riviera was even more comfortable. I was staying there for a convention and the Riviera is located within an easy walking distance to the Convention Center and, in the opposite direction, to the beach. There is a shuttle provided to and from the airport, but it doesn't run extremely often and stops running at 11pm. I appreciated the option, but it could have been better. The staff, especially the bellhops, were wonderful.

South beach trip

Simply put, the hotel staff was very helpful and professional, the room was very nice and looked just like it was described online. The hotel is very close to all the action but far enough away to not be bothered when it gets too late! Also the bartender Ron and the owner of the restaurants sister Diana I think, were the best!

Not what they advertise

No hot water for showers at any time of the day, the room temperature is controlled by the lobby, so if you're cold, you can't try to be a bit warmer. The staff is rude and very loud, house keeping gossiping outside of my door for at least 40 min. You have to pay 15 dlls a day for "resort" in which this case, they mean resort by a 3 foot deep pool with nothing around it but three mattresses to lay down! My room was not the one I had chosen when I booked and it was very disappointing. Other than that, the valet parking was very convenient and not overpriced, the beach is very close and everything else is within walking distance.
