Stayed at Riverside because of business meetings in the Hotel. Arrived early and I had requested a high floor and a quiet room. The front desk told me they would notify me when the room was ready. That never happened, the first room was on the 3rd floor, next to the elevator and over a noisy roof (so much for...

The hotel is average. Rooms are somewhat antiquated especially the bathrooms (very small). Staff is excellent and there are no big issues. The price is typical for Ft. Lauderdale. The main draw obviously is the LOCATION! If you want away from the beach and are looking for shops, restaurants, and a pleasant area just to stroll this is the place!

We stayed one night at the Riverside to enjoy the hotel and the surrounding shops and food purveyors. Our room on the second floor was neat, nicely appointed, and quiet to both the outside street and the hallway noise. We didn't have much of a view looking onto the treed courtyard, but we weren't there for the view. I'm sure...

We stayed at this hotel for only one night. It was the perfect location to walk to everything along Las Olas Blvd. The grounds were beautiful and our room did not disappoint.

If you want a first class hotel in the middle of the action, this is it. The staff are very professional, responsive and engaging. The lobby and bar areas are great places to relax. The hotel has been remodeled and is nicely appointed. The rooms need more light, but if you are spending time in the room you are missing...

We stayed here for two nights, before and after a cruise. I'll begin by saying that I love this old hotel. The location is at a really perfect spot on lively Las Olas avenue, with many great little restaurants and boutiques nearby. The rooms are very nice, and there is a lovely little shaded outside lounge area with couches and...

I recently sourced and oversaw a national sales meeting at the Riverside Hotel and from F&B to sleeping rooms to staffing, we were treated like rock stars. 1. Sleeping rooms. These recently refurbished and oversized accommodations were clean, well-serviced and very comfortable. Great bathroom space. 2. Meeting space.
