They also have a Happy Hour from 5 to 7pm with drinks 1/2 price. The swimming pool has a spectacular view over the waterways and is great watching the huge boats coming... More

I stay here whenever I'm in Ft Lauderdale although there are more cost effective choices. The Riverside is nestled among the shops, restaurants and galleries on Las Olas blvd. All you have to do is walk out the door and you are there! It has retained its old Florida charm over the years while upgrading its amenities (wifi, flat screen... More

We spent four days and five nights in this wonderful store and beautiful hotel. Slightly pricey, but the staff was friendly, accommodating, and professional. Even though the IT department was having difficulties, the staff took care of everything to the best of their ability. The overall experience was excellent.
