I spent two nights at the Riverside Hotel and the location and pool were both standouts. It is in a great location on Las Olas Blvd and this allows you to find great meals and shopping at your doorstep. The rooms were nice with good views from the higher floors of the tower. The rooms were slightly dated but clean.... More

As a member of the reunion committee, we worked extensively with Jessica King, Social Catering Manager, over the course of several months during the planning process. During that time she was extremely helpful and knowledgable of all the aspects and details it requires to successfully execute a 2-day event... More

This is a fantastic old hotel right in the middle of Las Olas. It's a fantastic shopping, restaurant and bar area. The hotel has two bars, two restaurants and is very classically appointed. Great stay.

We really enjoyed staying at Riverside Hotel. Even though it was only one night, we were able to take a stroll on Las Olas Blvd. and enjoy the hotel's restaurant. The ceviche was wonderful. The room was roomy and comfortable with a large bathroom. We will stay in Riverside Hotel again when we are back.
