This Hotel was first class. The area is great with everything you need in walking distance. The room was very clean and the staff was exceptional. Chelsea Litos was very helpful with area attractions and local activities for our children.

My mom and I stayed here for one night and had a lovely experience. We had dinner at the Wild Sea and drinks and Preston's afterwards. The room was clean and quite. One of the meeting managers, Chelsea Litos, was very professional and polite which made our experience wonderful! We will be back again!

It's always the other way around…I'm working and the wife gets to relax. This time she was the one attending a conference (dental hygiene) and when I learned it was at the Riverside Hotel I said that we should make a weekend of it. And I'm glad I did. Even though we live relatively close to Ft. Lauderdale, any excuse... More

I was looking for a "staycation" spot right here in Fort Lauderdale for myself and my girlfriend, and with so many hotels in the area, I didn't know where to go! Luckily I had recently met Chelsea Litos (who is the best, by the way!) at an event in town and she had nothing but great things to say about... More

We had a after hours event at Wild Sea organized by Chelsea Litos, this wasn't the first time she set up meetings, events for local and out of town businesses. Such a great place for this, families, weddings etc.

I run a summer golf trip with 12 guys and Chelsea Litos has been fantastic in helping me put it together. She has helped with the accommodations and dining reservations and has answered every question that has been asked. If we plan another trip to Fort Lauderdale we would definitely contact Chelsea and stay at the Riverside.

The Riverside Hotel was a nice place to stay but the floor I was on was going through some serious renovations. In fact, Richard at the front desk said I would be the first person in the renovated room. It was a challenge getting to the room at first, but once I found out what part of the hotel not... More

This is the perfect hotel for pre and post cruises or just a wonderful getaway. It is on Las Olas Blvd. with lots of nightlife and close to the art museum and beaches. Rooms are wonderful, some with views of the river and ocean. Restaurants and lounges on site, and marina for transient yachts. Beautiful pool and garden areas. Customer... More
