My husband and I flew into Fort Lauderdale the day before our cruise and chose the Riverside Hotel. We were extremely pleased with the location, just a short cab ride from the airport and to the cruise port at Port Everglades. We had a marvelous first impression as the two ladies at the front desk were warm and welcoming, laughing...

My wife and I stayed here for 1 night after a cruise. The location was perfect; right on las Olas Blvd, with great shops and restaurants, and 2 blocks from a water taxi stop; a great way to tour the canals. The rooms are extremely spacious and clean, the desk service was polite, friendly and professional. The price of this...

Beautiful elegant historic older hotel. Was build in the 30's but added on to over the years. The rooms are very large, we had great views of the beach and river. You can dock your boat on the river and have full hotel amenities. I messed up my reservation but the staff corrected it no problem. Had a wonderful stay...

I thought the staff was very friendly. The food was good at the Indigo for breakfast. Excellent location in downtown on Las Olas Boulevard. Its the only hotel there. Easy access to all the bars and restaurants and shopping along Las Olas Boulevard. I had no trouble falling asleep on my bed there. Room was clean.

Here for a week-end with hubby and sister and her sweet husband. I asked for rooms on a high floor with a view. Used Stash points so did not expect that I would get anything special. Boy was I wrong!

If you want to be in downtown Ft Lauderdale it is the only place to stay. And they know it! The service is arrogant, the pool is across the street with no hot tub and a big yacht blocking the intercostal view. It also closes at dusk. If you have a car it costs an extra $27 to park a...

Dear LipStick007, Thank you for taking the time to share your review with other travelers. I am disappointed that you were underwhelmed with your stay at our hotel, and more so that you found the level of service less than satisfactory. Your experience, as you've described it falls short of the level of service and accommodations we pride ourselves on.....

We had seen this hotel on a previous trip and thought the location was great for our needs. It was more expensive than we usually seek out, but well worth it. Our room was very comfortable. The bed was tremendous as were the pillows. We had so much space in the room, it felt like a suite. It was clean...

This was a business trip, I will never book Riverside again. Agree with other reviewers, cute building. However, I was given a room that felt more like a closet for $180. I was surprised to find my room shared a common wall with the elevator and was the only room tucked in the corner next to the said elevator. When...
