We stayed at the Riverside for a work conference that was being held at that location. The staff, location, and food were outstanding. Being right on Las Olas was wonderful, the staff were friendly with service that was excellent, and we had a fantastic amount of food provided for over 100 people. Also, they had a pretty cool touch screen in the lobby that gave directions for things to do in the area. However, the one down side - which, for a conference facility is crucial - was their internet service. It was only strong in the lobby and very sketchy in the rooms. If you are housed there for work, you expect to be able to connect online easily. If it wasn't for this part, I would give it an outstanding review. So if you are coming for vacation - stay. If you are looking for a place for a conference or do work out of, I'd currently look elsewhere.
