Came to Las Olas food and wine festival and stayed at the Riverside. The place is beautiful and elegant. The room in the 9 th floor very spacious with a fantastic view of the river and the port of Fort Lauderdale We had a VIP reception in the 8th floor and the service was awesome. I would recommend this place... More

We were celebrating a Wedding Anniversary and decided to stay at the Riverside Hotel. Our room was very nice, the staff was extremely friendly. Perfect location to stay at on Las Olas. Plenty of places to go close to the hotel to eat. Was a little disappointed that I did order some strawberries for the room to surprise my wife,... More

This is the third time we have stayed at the Riverside Inn in Fort Lauderdale. We book a room facing the river and above the 10th floor for the view. Nicely appointed and you cannot hear the street noise when in the room at all. The staff were all friendly and courteous. Located in very trendy area and close to... More

We spent two nights at this hotel before and after a recent cruise. There are two distinct portions of this hotel, the new section and the old section. On our first night we stayed in the new section and on our return we stayed in the older section. If you have a choice I would recommend asking for a room... More

We travelled here during a busy weekend and the price of the room was substantially higher than normal. Had it been at the regular price, I wouldn't be rating this hotel so rigorously. But when you pay 350+ per night you expect things to be a little more above perfect. The hotel itself if perfectly located to mostly everything you... More

Great location. My room was a bit outdated on the 3rd floor right by the elevator, but the bed was incredibly comfortable. There was no counter space in the bathroom (big problem). I loved the old tile in the lobby, & the ambiance & staff were lovely.

We stayed for just one night pre cruise but we will definitely stay for longer next time. The hotel has a great location and you can walk to shops, restaurants etc. The room was very comfortable, nicely furnished and very clean however there was no view, it overlooked a car park but as we were there for only one night...

I really loved my stay at this hotel. The location is great. It's located on Las Olas so it is closed to everything; (Cheesecake Factory is a 3-5 minute walk from the hotel.) You are perhaps 15-20 minutes from the beach. There are an abundance of restaurants, retailers and bars along the Las Olas stretch. My only problem is getting... More

We stayed here for a few days prior to embarking on a cruise! What a great place; service was outstanding; restaurant was great and outstanding nightly entertainment in the bar!! Dancing flowed out onto the sidewalk. Great location with short car trips to other sites in town.
