Nice Trip!
Reviewed 2 days ago

Had a great time at the riverside hotel. It is a great place to stay and the staff were very friendly. Happy hour drink prices on a Saturday which was a nice addition. The valet prices were slightly outrageous, that is the only thing that would prevent a future visit.

4.5 stars

Phenomenal location on Las Olas at the center of shops and restaurants. Next to water taxi for a trip up the river or down to the beach. Another way to the beach is weekend trolley and bicycle rickshaws that pass by the great bronze lions that stand guard in the front. Staff is exceptional, from Christopher at the front desk to the valets and attendants by the refreshing pool along rhe river next to the Boathouse restaurant and bar. Always greeted with a smile, never a problem that isn't dealt with promptly and courteously. We always enjoy our stay. If you want your stay to be 5 star request the new section with a balcony.

Great Hotel
Reviewed 5 days ago

We stayed at this hotel for one night before a cruise. Would highly recommend. The room was large and very clean. Pool, bar and reception were clean and spacious. The hotel is situated in a great location close to all attractions, shops etc. We had a great view from our balcony room. Would definitely return and stay again in the future!

Exceeded expectations
Reviewed 1 week ago

From the pictures we expected a hotel that was a bit worn out, but we were so happy with our stay and the hotel is beautiful! It is the oldest hotel in Fort Lauderdale and they have kept some of the old charm, but our room was still bright and updated.
The Fitness Center is the best we have tried at a hotel and the location is just perfect. Would definitely come back here

Very Nice Hotel
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We really enjoyed our night at Riverside Hotel. It's a boutique hotel and our beautiful room had comfortable beds, a fridge and a very large balcony. We arrived in Fort Lauderdale at 6am and were so fortunate to get into our room right away as soon as we arrived. Unfortunately, a fire alarm went off and a spokesperson announced several times that it was a false alarm. It took awhile to turn that off especially when it was at 7 or 8am and we were trying to sleep. I can understand it wasn't their fault but it was still annoying!
Pool is across the street behind a restaurant so you have to leave the hotel. Internet is awful and even the paid internet doesn't work well. We complained and they gave us a different login to use which was much better. Customer service was very good though.
Very nice hotel and would stay again!
