Room very comfortable with all amenities to be expected. Great location away from touristy beach front and amidst great shops and wonderful restaurants. Hotel staff superb especially Lori at the pool and Debora W. at the bar. Welcoming reception staff also.

We spent one night at the Riverside Hotel in early February. It was a wonderful experience! The hotel is a beautifully restored historic building right on the New River and Las Olas Blvd. It is super convenient to many great attractions! We want to give a "shout out" to Alicia at the front desk! She was very courteous and friendly,...

Great pre-cruise hotel. Located along the famous Las Olas strip, the hotel is conveniently located closed by shops and restaurants. The property has good restaurants that offers good deals for their happy-hour menu. The room is spacious and beautiful! It's clean and well-kept. The hotel decor is classic and has character. Overall, the hotel is one of recommended stay in...

Located on the main drag about 20 minute walk to Ft Lauderdale Beach. Good restaurants all around the hotel especially sidewalk cafes. Easy location for water taxi tour all through Ft Lauderdale and Hollywood. This is and older we'll maintained hotel but very charming and relaxing.

Service was average - a bit slow w/ coffee refills. Breakfast was good but a overpriced for the quality, IMO. But, that's pretty common for Las Olas! Good location means high prices. Overall it was fine and I'd go back.

My wife and I stayed at the Riverside Hotel prior to our recent cruise. We found the staff very accommodating and our room well furnished. Given our schedule, we were only able to try breakfast, which was good but fairly pricey. As the name implies, the Riverside Hotel sits on the New River and not on the beach. On one...

A stay at the Riverside was on our "bucket list". While we had dined here many times over the years, we had not had the opportunity to stay until our most recent vacation to Florida. Contrary to a few other reviews, we found the hotel staff to be very pleasant. We specifically chose the Classic Las Olas Suite in the...

We loved this hotel and it's location. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. The room was very nice as were the amenities. It's nestled right in the center of a quaint downtown shopping district. Lots of places to eat and shop. Great for a weekend getaway.

My friends and I were in town to attend a concert and I had previously been to the area to visit the local museums. I loved the Las Olas area and checked all the reviews on TripAdvisor for a hotel in this area. We were not disappointed! The entire staff was very accommodating and friendly. As it got closer to...

Convenient hotel on Los Olas Blvd. Plenty of nearby shops and restaurants. Hotel is old but nicely kept up. Rooms are spacious and clean. Bathroom was very clean. My only complaint is that there's no hook to hang your clothes in the bathroom or grab bars when getting in or out of the shower/tub. The front desk staff were very...
