The most attractive aspect of this hotel is the central location to Las Olas Boulevard which is a very active spot in Fort Lauderdale for Restaurants, Bars, Shops, etc. Rooms are average for the price tag. Service is OK. Would repeat stays due to the great location.

This hotel was a great find on TA. We had to spend one night in Ft Lauderdale in order to catch a morning flight the next day and this was the absolute best choice. Location was fabulous, right on Las Olas with blocks of shops and restaurants (hotel itself has several very nice restaurants as well). It was a much...

We stayed in a Double Queen room in the executive tower with our family of four. It was absolutely perfect. This room and its bathroom were both very large. This was probably the largest hotel room we have ever stayed in. The room was recently painted, the carpets recently cleaned and overall spotless and updated. The outside reflects the older...

Riverside Hotel is always my first choice of hotel if I can get a room with a view or most preferably a balcony overlooking the waterways. Many hours have been spent on their balconies enjoying a view of the waterways and/or Los Olas Blvd, this trip my view included both. The hotel location is perfect with excellent dining choices and...

Nice hotel, very clean and the staff was very friendly. There is no vanity, just a pedestal sink and small shelf and no mirror in the room just in the bathroom. Great location, close to everything, riverwalk, stores, restaurants, beach.

Whenever I visit Fort Lauderdale, I always stay at the Riverside Hotel, located on E. Las Olas Blvd, a street of shops and restaurants.
