Stayed at this property for three nights for a quick warm weather vacation. Hotel is well located on Las Olas Blvd, near many good restaurants and shopping. I booked a Tower king room on the ninth floor overlooking the New River. The room was quite large with a nice balcony terrace on the corner. Furnishings were somewhat dated, but clean...

With a cruise booked and scheduled to depart from Port Everglades, I looked for a hotel to stay in in Fort Lauderdale for one night. To note, I'm a native New Yorker. I had zero plans to rent a car, and wanted a hotel in a location I could walk around and find things to do. I picked Riverside Hotel...

My wife and I stayed for 2 nights before departing Port Everglades on a cruise. Tremendous hotel with great amenities. Walking distance of fabulous shops and restaurants. Happy Hour specials in the lounges and a lovely pool across the street made this an excellent choice.

From the moment we arrived we were impressed by the staff and their caring attitude. Our room in the Executive tower was spacious, clean and quiet and we slept very well. The hotel's situation is excellent for strolling out to restaurants and bars etc and for the water taxi service. Especial thanks to the Bell Captain and his staff for...

We just came home from a four night stay at The Riverside Hotel. They upgraded us to a suite because we were returning guest. The suite was amazing. If you ever have the chance to book it, it is well worth it. But the most amazing part is my husband left his cell phone in the room after we checked...

The Riverside Hotel is celebrating its 80th year and is Number One in my books. The beautiful older section is reminiscent of 50s Florida, while the newer Executive Tower is totally geared for combining business with pleasure. You will need to log onto the free internet every 24 hours, but there are countless USB ports and sockets for your devices....

Pool and location are very nice and the seafood restaurant downstairs is excellent! Rooms are tiny though and no breakfast is included so I didn't really feel like I got my money's worth. Staff was nice. The cover authorization on my credit card hasn't cleared and it's been 2 weeks.
