Room on the 12th floor was great, Lots of space, well appointed. Hotel staff friendly and cooperative. Dinner in the hotel restaurant was very good. Server was pleasant and efficient. On departure, ordered a taxi in advance and it was there on time waiting for us. All in all, great stay. Certainly would go back again.

Having stayed in other local hotels, for about the same price (or more) we decided to stay at the Riverside for one night pre-cruise. Arriving from the west coast did not give us much time to explore but what we did see and do was great. By checking about a month before our arrival date, I was able to get...

I travel to Fort Lauderdale on business every year and I wouldn't stay anywhere but the Riverside. It's steps from shopping and excellent restaurants. The hotel has a newer wing with large, modern, comfortable rooms, but the original wing's rooms are comfortable and full of character. The staff can't do enough for their guests. I haven't eaten lunch or dinner...

Really great location close to many shops and restaurants. The common spaces are really updated and beautiful, however the rooms don't share the same attraction. They are clean but have outdated fixtures and decor. And the gym pictured on the site was not functioning (and no warning given in advance) so they put a couple of treadmills in an unused...

We were in town just for a short turn-around shopping trip, so I didn't really plan on luxury or amenities--just a good deal. We booked on Expedia for a great price, were surprised with the quality, really surprised. Heck, i would have been happy to have a coffee-maker, and then there was a fridge, and nice toiletries, and an elevator--woot...

Hotel is in a great location in the centre of Las Olas Blvd. close to many shops and restaurants. It is an older hotel and it does have its charm. Some nice frescos and some very interesting furniture can be found throughout. Plenty of hotel parking available. Rooms are not very large but well equipped. Bathrooms are very small with...

Ive had 3 stays at the Riverside as a part of international relocation. The location was fantastic as its out of the crush of the beachfront but still within a walk or bike ride.

Had a great stay. Hotel was central to everything and tons of transportation options. Walking distance to shops and restaurants, and the river. Short Trolley ride to the beach. Hotel is beautiful and the Staff was amazing! Great patio at the hotel restaurant to have breakfast or drinks.

Booked here due to the prime location on Las Olas blvd. where all the shops and restaurants are. Only stayed 2 nights before getting on our cruise but had had enough by then. First room they gave us was on first floor near the stairs and the amount of noise coming up from the bar was ridiculous. It sounded like...
