My Sister and I stayed at this hotel for 7 days and we had a great time. The accommodations were first rate, the staff were friendly and helpful, and the entire place was immaculately clean. The location on Las Olas Blvd. in the center of downtown Ft. Lauderdale was perfect. Our friendly and efficient housekeeper Veronique kept our room immaculate. The service at the Wild Sea Restaurant was outstanding. The Boathouse Restaurant was our favorite as the food was delicious and the excellent and friendly Bartender Glen Ford made our experience extra special. I would not hesitate to recommend the Riverside to anyone and I look forward to staying here the next time I'm in Ft. Lauderdale.

I lived here 15 days...I should say the most amazing life I experienced. It was like home. The wonderful staff helped in every need. The people like Debra, Wynn and Will are now my good friends..They are highly professional, very attentive people who helped me feel at home. The hotel is at excellent location facing Las Olas Blvd. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Miami area, and I will be here at least couple of times an year from now...Thanks to the great management.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel and had an amazing time. The location is in the center of the Las Olas strip and with in walking distance to fantastic restaurants and apparel stores. The downstairs bar had excellent service thanks to Quinn. He is an excellent and friendly bartender. The maid service kept our room clean and pristine. Everything was great and would definitely return ASAP!
