We stay here pre-cruise Jan 26 to Jan 29. I picked this hotel, because of it's location on Los Olas Blvd. Yes, at $205.00 American, it was pricey, but asked for one of the new tower rooms over-looking the inter-coastal waterways. Well, let me tell you, the room was well worth the price. We where on the 11th floor, and could watch all the beautiful yacht's going up, and down the river. We had two queen size beds, and the room was quite large. The bathroom, was very clean, and nice with marble through out.
The Breakfast in the indego was a little pricey, but you just have to try the freshly squeezed orange juice, mmmmmm, very good. The food was good as well. The cheesecake factory was just around the corner, but Thur, Fri, and Sat, be sure to make a reservation. Very busy.
The water taxi was just to blocks away, and I just loved it. You could go from one side of Ft. Lauderdale to other, and the beach, for $7.00 all day, off and on it. You don't have to paid the big dollars for the tours on the water. The staff on the water taxi's are very informative, and tell you all about the beautiful homes, and yacht's.
Los Olas Blvd just outside the hotel, is very pricey, but you can find a bargain, if you look. I felt very safe if this area of town, had no problems, and the blvd came alive at night. Wow, the people, and the outside bars, and restaurants will amaze you. The hotel staff was very friendly, and answers all our questions, and offered suggestion about things to see, and where to go. They have a heated pool out back of there hotel. You must try it, have to use your room card to get in, and very quiet. Loved it.
The only thing I suggest is, that if you get a taxi to take you to the cruise ships, or other, get it in the front, and not the back of the hotel. We took it from the back, and the meter was already 8 dollars and something, and then we were passing the front of the hotel. I think he took the long way around. It is about $14,00 to the cruise port.
Would definitely stay at the Riverside again. Well worth the price.
