Whenever I visit Fort Lauderdale, I always stay at the Riverside Hotel, located on E. Las Olas Blvd, a street of shops and restaurants. I just find it more interesting than the beach, particularly after dark. I just stayed there in early December, and it was already beautifully decorated for Christmas. Good food, friendly staff, heated pool. I'm deducting one... More

Making it really nice if you want a night cap. They have a parking garage and you can self park for... More

I had my wedding at the Riverside Hotel and everything was amazing. Jessica King was our MVP for coordinating everything prior and leading the way during. We used the riverside patio on the river for the ceremony; the outside terrance on the 8th floor for the cocktail hour; and the adjoining room for the party. Everything flowed perfectly and smoothly.... More

We recently had my sons wedding at the Riverside Hotel, we couldn't have chosen a more perfect venue. Jessica King, our amazing, talented and understanding wedding coordinator was a blessing! She made our event just as special as the bride and groom are. The staff at the hotel were very professional and friendly. Debbie, the catering manager, transfomed the ballroom... More

I stayed here from the 4th till 6th dec, just before I go on a cruise. The room was great and bed comfy. I ate breakfast both days in their restaurant and the food wasn't expensive and tastes good. The hotel is in a great position with places to eat John

This is a really nice hotel. It's been renovated recently and the rooms are beautiful. There are several restaurants on site and quite a few more within walking distance. Shops are all around and all within walking distance also. All in all, it's very conveniently located and near the beach.
