We were at the Riverside Hotel for 3 nights in an Executive Room ahead of our Cruise and would definitely choose to return. Location is great and the staff were always keen to help us. We enjoyed the bar (make the most of the happy hour!) and breakfast outside in November was a real treat coming from Scotland. Concierge arranged...

We had a wonderful stay. The staff was always friendly. The room was clean, and comfortable. The hotel is located near shops and the water taxi which will take you around town for $26 bucks. You can jump on and off all day with your ticket stub.

Spent the weekend at the Riverside, in town for a wedding celebration. Nice hotel, with great location on Las Olas Blvd. Lots of nearby shopping and restaurants. Also located next to a stop on the water taxi route, which we utilized for a tour. Tour was very nice but a bit overpriced at $26/person. Check-in at the hotel was smooth,...

The Riverside Hotel's location on Las Olas Blvd worked well for us. The room was spacious and the king bed comfortable. The bathroom was small, but the hotel is older so that's understandable. The room was updated with an HD TV and a charging station for phones and tablets. Many restaurants within walking distance and water taxis were right around...

The hotel is older but renovated and updated. Rooms were comfortable, in a great location and priced right. Large Lobby with a bar, fireplace, comfortable big chairs like you would expect, piano, and busy restaurant with frontage and outdoor seating on Los Olas Boulevard. Lots of Old Florida Gold Coast charm from the big movie days. Staff is helpful, cheerful...

A lovely hotel - fantastic location. As you enter the foyer it is grand and spacious- and looks beautiful with the Christmas decorations. Accommodation is very good although air conditioning unit a bit noisy. Spacious and clean. Lovely pool - a great outlook to the New River. Stanrahan House is on the doorstep. Las Olas boulevard is lively, trendy and...
