I have visited several hotels all over Europe and in Florida as part of business trips. During our vacation this year we had to stay here for 3 nights. So far this is the first night. First impression: - staff is really welcoming but seem to be trained to give the impression of a high end hotel - it is... More

While some visitors may prefer the large beach-front properties, others may enjoy the quaint section of Las Olas Blvd that is lined with restaurants, galleries and an eclectic mix of shopping. Only a mile from the beach, this property has the charm and elegance of a landmark property that has been updated in a very nice way. King rooms include... More

This hotel is in the perfect location in Fort Lauderdale, on Las Olas Blvd. It has quality furnishings, except for the beds, oddly enough. We had a smallish queen size bed in our room (too small for two adults, as we were), clearly on rolls, so it moved and wobbled terribly. The mattress has clearly also seen better days, whenever...

Went to visit family and booked a room here for a few nights through Orbitz. First off, booking was very easy, but I always call and confirm a few days before my trip to ensure everything is in order. Riverside had my reservation ready to go and told me I could certainly upgrade my room upon arrival. I checked in... More

I stayed in this hotel for one night since I was going on a cruise the next day. Good location, clean and cozy. The one thing I have to admit is that the motor lobby is in what could be seen as the back entrance, and they havn't put much effort on it so it looks plain when you first... More

Just finished a three night business stay. I had a great reception with friendly staff. The room was spacious and comfortable, nicely updated as well. The location opens up to a fun experience in the Las Olas dining and shopping district. The food was good and the service excellent. I look forward to staying with them in the future.

This hotel stay was amazing from the moment my friend and I walked into the door. The property itself has been updated and is very pleasant. We were advised to valet park the car, and I'm glad we did - it worked out to only be about $27 for the night. Front desk staff were friendly and very helpful -... More

Had a great one night stay at this hotel in the heart of Ft Lauderdale's downtown section. It is right in the middle some of the best resturants and bars in Ft. Lauderdale. The hotel is over 70 years old but has been updated pretty well. The pool area is beautiful but awkward since it is across the street (behind... More

We actually did not stay here, just went into the lobby. We had tickets to ride the Jungle Queen in Fort Lauderdale, and decided to make a night of it, coming from Jensen Beach. We researched the area, and narrowed it down to two hotels, the Hampton Inn and the Riverside. The reviews of the Riverside made us think that... More
