Six of us arrived at 11am on 10/31/12 after coming back from a cruise out of Miami. Two of the 3 rooms were ready.. understandably that check in wasnt until 3pm. The 3rd within an hour! Wonderful front desk staff!
We spent the afternoon at the pool. Pool area is in back of hotel and is surrounded by trees and faces the river. Lots of lounge chairs in the sun and plenty of tables & chairs under cover. Lunch and cold drinks were a phone call away, and delivered pool side. Food was excellant. Pool area was very clean and quiet. Spent the afternoon swimming and watching the large boats traveling just feet away.
The Riverside location is in th middle of Las Olas Blvd.... surrounded by shops, boutiques and restaurants. All within walking distance. The Italian Bakery across the street was a little too handy! We had breakfast on the front porch.... was relaxing and very good. Food prices are very much on par with a quality hotel.
Lobby area is open, but cozy with a nice area around a working fireplace. There is a tropical garden with tables and chairs to gather and converse. The Business Center was very good and easy to work in. Also internet access is free to registered guests.
We were at the Riverside for 2 nights... and would be my first choice for my next visit to Fort Lauderdale. I would highly recommend the Riverside Hotel and look forward to my next visit.
