Past guests were less than impressed with the on-site restaurant's food
With rooms and suites outfitted in modern decor and filled with coveted amenities like 42-inch flat-screen TVs, leather headboards and C.O. Bigelow bath amenities, the Riviera Hotel South Beach is a lot more opulent than other Miami Beach hotels. But its dark, distinctive look can be an off-putting contrast from airy, bright and sunny Miami Beach. And the food served isn't the remarkable fare that you'd find at some other luxury hotels. However, top-notch perks like evening cocktail hours, poolside fitness classes and personal training sessions, beach chairs and shuttle services between the hotel and Miami International Airport are covered by the property's daily $18 resort fee. Previous guests are also fond of the staff here, saying that everyone from the front desk attendants to the wait staff at Moreno's Cuba restaurant was extremely friendly and helpful. The Riviera Hotel sits within walking distance of Collins Avenue, the Miami Beach Convention Center and the beach.

Critic Reviews

Travel + Leisure


Rooms at South Beach's Riviera Hotel are surprisingly spacious (at least 700 square feet), given the prime location a couple of blocks from the ocean and near the Bass Museum of Art. Each suite comes with a separate bedroom, lounge, and kitchen, plus two flat-screen TVs and an iPod docking station.


The two-building hotel is located two blocks from the beach and both luxurious Ocean Drive and the scene on Collins Avenue are within easy walking distance. Rooms are modern and hip with big flat-screen TVs and nicely stocked minibars, but rooms facing the Morenos restaurant/bar may get noisy at night.
