Stayed one night prior to a cruise. The Riverside Hotel is very nice for an older facility. The rooms are TINY, however it was clean and comfortable. The bathrooms have supposed to have an art-deco kind of feel to them, but they’re more dated than retro.
We were on the 6th floor, right next to the storage room for the housekeepers, who were very loud early in the morning. Other than that, the room was nice & quiet, even for being next to the elevators. There was no trash can in our room; only one bucket labeled “recycle”.
The staff was very friendly and efficient. It did however take almost 30 min. for a taxi to arrive. There are a couple of restaurants within the hotel itself, and several others within a half-block walk, along with a lot of novelty shops. I recommend checking out the menus at the neighboring establishments as well; most had them available on the sidewalk out front.
Overall I would recommend the Riverside Hotel if you’re into classic refurbished hotels, and aren’t looking for a lot of modern amenities (including floorspace).
