We really had no idea what the Riverside was like, aside from the reviews. The location was ideal for our quick business trip and when we arrived we were pleasantly surprised to realize that it was located in the heart of a trendy downtown area. There were lots of shops and restaurants to choose from. (Highlight: I actually met Dan...

My family and my boyfriend and I stayed here before we sailed on our cruise ship. This hotel is such a convenient location to many great spots. This is only 10 min from the airport. They provide valet parking for you so you don't have to deal with trying to find parking on the busy roads with meters. This is...

Location, location, it is what really matters. In the center of Las Olas Blvd. within walking distance to the beach, and the water taxis, not to forget plenty of great restaurants. The hotel is well-kept, consider asking for the Executive Tower rooms, they are a little more expensive but they are huge and well-kept. In the hotel breakfast is nice...

My room was a double queen, standard on the 2nd floor, I didn't have great view like other because the hotel is expanding and there's construction across the street. The room was very comfortable and clean. It had a smart TV, a small refrigerator, and a safe. The closet space is large with many hangers. The bathroom was a little...

We had a room on the 12th floor with the river and ocean view. It was beautiful! So fun to wake up and watch all the water traffic on the river and see the cruise ships out in the ocean!!! It was a very nice large room with a mini fridge and single cup coffee pot. Bathroom was also very...

This was our second stay prior to a cruise. Convenient location to the port, beautiful area with of lots of shops and classy restaurants. We had taken an early flight so we arrived well before check-in, knowing we would likely not get a room yet. Front desk supervisor Desmond was kind enough to get us a room early, and gave...

This is a boutique type hotel situated in the heart of Las Olas Boulevard in Fort Lauderdale, about 1 3/4 miles from the beach. Abundant restaurants along Las Olas. There is a water taxi that takes you around the river/canal at the back of the hotel. Parking is expensive. Valet is probably "cheaper" at $27/day vs. self park at the...
