San Francisco, California

This hotel is incredibly charming, nestled right in the heart of Las Olas. The lobby and grounds are small, but gives you that "Old Florida feel". Both restaurants in the hotel are tasty, and we enjoyed grabbing a beer at the small pub before a night out. The beach is about 2 miles down the road. We stayed in a...

This historic hotel on Las Olas Blvd. is a gem. I love staying here along the river. Very clean and comfy. Nice restaurant with outdoor seating and live music some evenings. Very nice rooms and comfy beds. Go!

The location on Las Olas is great if you wish to take advantage of the downtown restaurants, bars and shops---you can walk to them all. It's a very nice, active area. It's a bit of a hike to the ocean by shuttle or car. The rooms are fine, but not luxurious. Our room had a bad view, but we weren't...

Our room gave us a very nice view of the river. The seafood restaurant on the premises did a very good soft-shell crab BLT, and everyone we talked to in the hotel was very friendly and helpful. The street the hotel is on also has a nice assortment of interesting shops and galleries.

We stayed at the Riverside one night before heading down to Key West. Very friendly staff, both at curbside and at check-in. Room was great, overlooking both the river and the boulevard. Only minor complaint--There was a parade about to occur on the boulevard, and accessing the hotel was difficult. I called to ask the best way to get to...

We absolutely LOVED Riverside Hotel! The hotel is beautiful. Our tower room was spacious; only down side was that the hotel was booked to capacity such that our room was not cleaned until about 5 pm each day. The location on Los Olas is great! You can wander along Los Olas, take the water taxi or walk the riverwalk! The...

The riverside is a beautiful hotel with excellent facilities and customer service that matches the best luxury hotels in the country. This is the only place that I stay when in South Florida. The accommodations are great and even though I stay here often each stay is a wonderful experience. Very personal and a great value.
