Stayed here for two nights last week. This hotel is right in the heart of Las Olas and couldn't be faulted for location. Rooms are nice, not modern but no complaints. The bathroom was small but adequate. We booked a taxi with reception for our early departure to the airport. Unfortunately when we checked out we realised the reception hadn't... More

If you plan to celebrate call Riverside Hotel first. We stayed at the hotel for one night before the cruise and kicked off our anniversary. The location is perfect, the room was beautiful and well appointed, the atmosphere joyful but not over the top and the staff... well the staff is always the secret ingredient. You were great. Thank you... More

Stayed 2 nights at the Riverside Hotel Dec. 31 and Jan. 1. Restful nights, but expensive...$259 a night, $75 shuttle service to Miami, and no pool (Well I could find it). Hotel sits in the middle between the bars and the restaurants. The hotel itself has restaurants, bars and live music on the strip. Kind of a fun hotel... even... More

spent a few days for New Year's, it is a fun and entertaining area. charming cafes and boutiques. Really nice building right on Las Olas. Service in the hotel is pretty average perhaps the holiday influenced. beach is a 15/20 min walk or you can take bus/ trolley For a quick 5 min trip.

We stayed at the Riverside Hotel in Ft. Lauderdale for two nights prior to a cruise. We had an Executive Tower King room which was quite large and clean. The staff were friendly and helpful. We spent a few days eating, shopping, and relaxing by the hotel pool. We ate at a couple restaurants in the hotel, as well as... More

I decided to stay at the Riverside Hotel because I knew I didn't want to stay on Ft. Lauderdale beach. Also, being right on Las Olas Blvd was a big plus. Plenty to see and do, all within walking distance. After reading other reviews, I opted for a tower room with a balcony and I'm glad I did. The room... More

We enjoyed the Riverside hotel during our recent trip to Fort Lauderdale/Miami. Being on Los Olas Blvd. was very nice. We enjoyed walking around and visiting shops and trying restaurants. We asked for a tower room because we read the review that they were renovated but we're assured all rooms were now renovated. Our non-tower room was nice. The elevator... More

This is a beautiful hotel located on a really fun street. There are tons of restaurants and boutiques, so there is plenty to do within walking distance of the hotel. What you should be aware of is that the hotel was built in the 1930's and there are a few limitations to staying there. The elevator closest to our room... More
