Very nice hotel in the heart of downtown. Very convenient to shopping and restaurants. The room and bathroom were large and comfortable and staying in the tower gave us a nice view. If the beach is a priority, this may not be the place for you. It's too far to walk. We tried to one day but after 30 minutes... More

I love this hotel. It is so close to everything - beach is a little bit of a walk but parking is cheap if you chose to drive. Great nightlife, shopping, and overall amazing atmosphere. Room was clean. Bathroom was a little older looking, but served the purpose. There were no visible issues with plumbing. Staff was accommodating and offered... More

Stayed on business for 2 nights. Fab location in Fort Lauderdale, right on the Main Street with all the shops, bars and restaurants. Walk out of the front of the hotel and you are right in the middle of all the action ! Only ate breakfast but it was the usual American portions......massive. Overall great value and good service

I splurged on an Exective Tower Suite to surprise my husband for his birthday! Pricey but very nice! Huge awesome bathroom, bar area, living room, seperate bedroom with king bed, and a wrap around corner balcony! The suites are on the top floor (12) and the east one has a fantastic view of the New River and surrounding area. The... More

Riverside Hotel staff are pleasant and professional. The location can't be beat either. After enjoying a stroll on Las Olas, got a great night's rest. The views from the room were lovely. Charming hotel, and I recommend their restaurant Indigo for brunch too. For the price and location, this is superb!

Stayed here for a couple of nights before flying out to Mexico from FLL after a trip to Orlando. Family of four from the UK. It is ideally located for Las Olas Boulevard, the main spot for bars and restaurant in the evening, as well as for watching the yachts on the intracoastal waterway that runs behind the hotel during...

Had a one night stay prior to our cruise. Very convenient location and good walking outside hotel. We were placed in old part of hotel and the room was old and musty. For the most part front desk service was good, although when I asked for a south or east view, based on other tripadvisor reviewer's advice I was ignored.

Located right on las olas blvd close to all the great restaurants and shopping. Great staff very friendly and helpful. The rooms are big a bit too quiet, we could hear doors opening early morning and middle of the night. No white noise from the fan like most hotels. Overall good hotel . Higher floors have better view of the... More

This hotel is right on Los Olas street and the River Walk. Wonderful neighborhood to stroll, with lots of restaurants and shops. The desk staff was sooo nice and helpful, as was the staff at the restaurants associated with the hotel. They even loaned us a corkscrew for our bottle of wine. The room was large, clean and comfortable. The... More
