We stayed here for two nights over the weekend. The Riverside is a very nice hotel in downtown on Las Olas Blvd. It has been recently renovated and the rooms are large, clean and quiet. This is a nice change from many branded hotels in the area. The only downside was their parking rate of $20+/day for self park which... More

I have stayed at this hotel quite a few times over the past 2 decades and have never been disappointed in any way. The staff are gracious and strive to exceed expectations. I had one minor complaint with my recent stay with the sliding door to my balcony suite which I voiced in my survey of the hotel. I received... More

I stayed in August while visiting my family, and I couldn't have been more pleased. My room was huge and very comfortable, with a view down Las Olas Boulevard. Breakfast was excellent (I had the breakfast package with my room,and valet as well), with wonderful service and tables outside on the terrace. The valets were always lightning fast with the... More

Great first impressions with the valet through the check-in process set the stage for a pleasant stay on this business trip. The entire staff is to be commended for their customer centric approach with me and all the guests during my stay. This clean, well kept property located in the shopping and restaurant area will be a place I look... More

The Riverside Hotel is a consistent value away from the Ft. Lauderdale beach scene. The front desk staff is always welcoming and very friendly which sets a good tone. This past visit we stayed in the original section of the hotel which upon check-in they were excited to tell us had just be refurbished. From the smell of new carpet... More

I have heard a lot of people boast the Riverside hotel as being historic, beautiful, having great service, etc. I was utterly unimpressed. I was there for a few days for a conference and the hotel, while small and intimate, needs to do some serious upgrading to charge the kind of prices they do. I was put in this awkward... More

I attend your Sunday brunch every week. Judith is the best- she hugs me upon arrival, remembers my name and promptly brings me my favorite drink. My girl friends and I love this place and the only place to be on Sundays!!! The jazz singer is the cherry on top!

5th time I stayed here. Rooms in non refurbished wing are lacking in size and necessities. Not enough electrical outlets for charging phone. Tablet and computer. Shower is so small you do not feel comfortable. Restaurants are excellent. Waiters are excellent. Front desk go beyond expectations. Ask for newer rooms and you will have a great stay.

We live within walking distance of the hotel, but LOVE to get away on a StayCation. Staff was great. Pool was amazing. Lots to do and see. The rooms are comfortable, clean, quiet and have GREAT views of the city, ocean and intracoastal.
