First the Pros: the Location is spot on. If you can't find something to do on Las Olas then that's a problem. Great places to eat even on a budget and great unique places to shop! If you don't feel like leaving the hotel they have a nice bar and restaurant downstairs with fresh seafood! Hotel staff at front desk...

We spent our last night in Fort Lauderdale here on March 17th. It is really confusing to know where to go, to get into the hotel for the lobby. Parking must be done by valet and it is costly - $30 - no other options. No bell service looking to help us with our bags at all. We got checked...

This is a lovely hotel that is in a easy to negotiate and enjoy area. There is an old section and a newer tower section. We stayed in the tower as the room has queen size beds in this area. The decor throughout the hotel was reminiscent of old Florida. The hotel itself has several bars and restaurants. Piano bar...

This hotel is incredibly charming, nestled right in the heart of Las Olas. The lobby and grounds are small, but gives you that "Old Florida feel". Both restaurants in the hotel are tasty, and we enjoyed grabbing a beer at the small pub before a night out. The beach is about 2 miles down the road. We stayed in a...

This historic hotel on Las Olas Blvd. is a gem. I love staying here along the river. Very clean and comfy. Nice restaurant with outdoor seating and live music some evenings. Very nice rooms and comfy beds. Go!

The location on Las Olas is great if you wish to take advantage of the downtown restaurants, bars and shops---you can walk to them all. It's a very nice, active area. It's a bit of a hike to the ocean by shuttle or car. The rooms are fine, but not luxurious. Our room had a bad view, but we weren't...

Our room gave us a very nice view of the river. The seafood restaurant on the premises did a very good soft-shell crab BLT, and everyone we talked to in the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The street the hotel is on also has a nice assortment of interesting shops and galleries.

We stayed at the Riverside one night before heading down to Key West. Very friendly staff, both at curbside and at check-in. Room was great, overlooking both the river and the boulevard. Only minor complaint--There was a parade about to occur on the boulevard, and accessing the hotel was difficult. I called to ask the best way to get to...
