For a pre or post cruise stay, the Riverside is a good choice. It's got a great location on touristy E. Las Olas Blvd., making it a good base for exploring Ft. Lauderdale. Rooms are large and comfortable.

We wanted to spend a couple of days on Las Olas Blvd, Fort Lauderdale, following our Southern Caribbean Cruise. We had walked through The Riverside Hotel on a previous day trip to Las Olas, and decided this was the place we wanted to stay. The Hotel did not disappoint! We were upgraded on arrival, to a beautiful King Suite. The... More

My friend and I stayed 1 night last week awaiting to leave on our cruise the next day. I wanted to stay somewhere with more activity then at the airport. I was pleasantly surprised about this hotel... It's great! Cab ride from the airport was $20, Shuttle to the cruise port was $7.... And considering we could walk to restaurants... More

Forget about the hotel; I know nothing about it other than it looks expensive. However, its Wild Sea restaurant is a find: original, adventurous, profoundly delicious food is here, for those willing to drop a lot of money on a meal that is well worth it. Five stars for food and service four for ambience (big screen teevees at the... More

We met our daughter and boyfriend, who were half way through a world tour, for Christmas in Fort Lauderdale as we'd passed through the town once on one of our earlier visits to Florida and thought it was very pleasant. We had no idea where to stay so hunted around on Trip Advisor for reviews and came upon the Riverside.... More

This is where I imagine people stayed in the good old days. Big room, wide halls, lovely public spaces. I'm giving it four stars only because they need to have handicapped bars in the shower and something else which I've forgotten. Couldn't have been too important. You can do breakfast in the lobby on the cheap...juice, muffins and decent coffee... More

My family and I stay here because of its great location as the only hotel on Las Olas. Friendly staff. The executive tower is always clean and this time we went for the balcony which was nice overlooking the river. Special thanks to Terry at the front desk for the river view balcony room and other help.

The New River is across the street from the hotel, and the pool is right on the river. There's a nice River Walk along the river with benches for watching boats, parks, restaurants and historic buildings. On the other side of the hotel is Los Olas Blvd, filled with small shops, plenty of restaurants, and the art museum - all... More
