We were only staying one night for a concert and wanted to be relatively close to the venue (revolution live.) They accommodated our early arrival which was super helpful. The location for this hotel was awesome, there's so much nearby! There's a few places outside the front of the hotel, The Cheesecake factory on the corner, Rocco's tacos within a...

Stayed at the Riverside on our last night of a week long vacation that included 3 days in the Bahamas. Excellent location. Loved walking around Las Olas and visiting the shops, restaurants and bars. Old building charm that has been modernized. We had an excellent meal at Wild Sea. Erick and everyone there hit it out of the park. Grilled...

The location is perfect. You can walk everywhere. The room was fine and the bed was very comfortable. The bathroom was very small with no counter space. My coffee mugs were dirty, but I just washed them as I needed my coffee asap. I also checked in late at night and the desk clerk wasn't very nice at all. He...

Stayed at The Riverside for 4 nights for a wedding. It's at a great location in the middle of all the Las Olas action, though still very quiet. The decor of the hotel is really nice - has a Tommy Bahama sort of vibe. The rooms are clean and beds are comfortable. The staff is super friendly, although both times...

In general, the Riverside Hotel was nice. The front desk staff and managers we dealt with her amazing and were extremely professional and customer service oriented. The gift shop staffer (Black woman from Honduras) was very friendly and lovely. The restaurant manager and housekeeping managers were very accommodating. It seems that some of the line staff are not trained so...

Awakened at 1:30 AM by the room's smoke alarm chirping every 3 minutes due to low battery. No chance of sleeping. Front Desk said hotel does not have maintenance staff at night so I would have to change rooms in order to sleep. Moved in middle of night to a room where heat didn't work and fan unit was noisy....

It's easy to spot this hotel as you are driving into downtown Fort Lauderdale: it's pale green. Terrific location if you want access to Highway 1 or A1A, yet would like to walk to a variety of restaurants or Riverwalk. Parking is expensive: $30 a night, but convenient. I thought the beds were a little soft for my taste, and...
