I really loved my stay at this hotel. The location is great. It's located on Las Olas so it is closed to everything; (Cheesecake Factory is a 3-5 minute walk from the hotel.) You are perhaps 15-20 minutes from the beach. There are an abundance of restaurants, retailers and bars along the Las Olas stretch. My only problem is getting...

We stayed here for a few days prior to embarking on a cruise! What a great place; service was outstanding; restaurant was great and outstanding nightly entertainment in the bar!! Dancing flowed out onto the sidewalk. Great location with short car trips to other sites in town.

We did a little staycation over Easter weekend for one night and really enjoyed it. We valeted and were cheerfully checked into our room three hours early. The king room was located on the 11th floor with a great view of the New River and an unfortunate view of a construction site. There wasn't any work or noise going on,...

This hotel is right in the heart of a bustling restaurant and bar district. The high number of fantastic options for dining and drinking within short walking distance ensured no shortage of options when it was meal time. The Indigo restaurant inside the hotel has good food, even if the service was sometimes lacking. The sidewalk seating area was nice...

Located in the heart of tons of great dining options, the hotel's strength is it's location. Rooms and bathrooms are large. I stayed on what I believe was a remodeled floor (lobby still pending). Attempts to label the room's furnishings design aims would be futile. Better than the average Marriott Courtyard however. I had internet issues upon arrival. Someone was...

This was our second stay at the riverside. This time we also booked extra Rooms for two other couples who were travelling with us. The location is awesome! There are many restaurants and shops in the area, including a CVS pharmacy and Starbucks within walking distance. The area is clean and safe and it is nice to just stroll along...

Nicest room ever in a 75 year old hotel. Stayed in 1990 and the past 25 years reflect great continuing care, and very nice upgrades. Stayed in the original part of the hgotel, and it was as quiet a room as we have ever had. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was very updated. Will not wait until 25 years!

Reviewed 26 March 2015

Las Olas Boulevard out front and the New River out back. Next door to the Stranahan House, the original trading post that started Fort Lauderdale, Rooms are classicly comfortable in the original hotel, larger with expansive views in the newer tower. Service is attentive and impeccable. The only gripe was wifi. 512K for free, $5.99/day for 1.5 M.

We stayed there for 1 day before a Caribbean cruise It is not far from the airport and the port. It is in a great location for shopping and dining. The hotel is clean, the rooms are well appointed and are spacious. The staff was very helpful. I would stay there again.
