I have planned for a large group to stay at the Riverside this October. I'm trying to show off Fort Lauderdale to the out of towners and I know the Riverside will make a great first impression. Called to see about a group rate on rooms and Chelsea Litos set everything up for me. Easy process and great service! My... More

I am so happy that Kristi from marking recommended me and my girlfriends to stay here. It's right on Las Olas Blvd...not a far distance to the beach...and the hotel definitely captured the nautical vibe. Lots of great restaurants and shops around the hotel, and definitely worth the stay. Thanks again, Kristi!

I stayed at this hotel for a workshop, and it met all of our needs. Everything was presented as a five star hotel from the moment I arrived to the moment of departure. The lobby, meeting room, and bedrooms were very clean. The staff was very helpful, the waiters were very professional, and the food was good. The hotel has... More

The Riverside Hotel is my favorite hotel in Fort Lauderdale and the rooms are awesome. The food at Indigo is amazing. There's a ton of shopping close by and numerous restaurants on Las Olas. Will most certainly return when I come back to Fort Lauderdale. Many thanks to Kristi in Marketing for the recommendation!

We have always enjoyed The Riverside Hotel. The location, staff and amenities are top notch. You can’t beat the happy hour at Golden Lyon or Preston’s. The menu selections at Wild Sea Oyster Bar and Grille are current and creative. The hotel rooms are charming and immaculate. We recently booked a block of rooms for an upcoming special event.

Great combination of old Florida vibes in a modern atmosphere! I stayed in the executive tower and woke up to fantastic views of the river each morning and enjoyed the nightlife of the area each evening! The restaurants are amazing and the staff is even better! I've been to south Florida before, but I wanted this trip to be a... More

My friends and I stayed at The Riverside Hotel for a girls weekend, and we couldn't have asked for a more perfect trip. The location is amazing! During the day, we relaxed by the pool, went paddle boarding, and rode bikes to the beach. At night, all of the best restaurants and nightlife were right at our doorstep. The hotel... More

A quant hotel located in the heart of Las Olas, situated near local restaurants and shops; it's the perfect hotel to stay at during your time in Florida. Exceptional amenities, delightful service and staff. Chelsea Litos greeted my business partner and I, making us feel very welcomed! Thank you Riverside Hotel!

The Riverside Hotel is the only hotel that is located directly on Fort Lauderdale's famous Las Olas Blvd. It is the perfect location to catch the water taxi down the New River or walk along Las Olas Blvd and experience an abundant selection of restaurants, lounges and art galleries. With only a short 5 minute taxi ride to Fort Lauderdale's... More

With nostalgic charm and old world style, The Riverside Hotel is the heart beat of Las Olas Boulevard. The rooms are comfortable and inviting and the staff is as warm as the sun that shines down in the quaint courtyards that you can find nestled in the belly of the Hotel. The staff goes to tremendous lengths to ensure that... More
