The pool was nice but the beds were terrible plus they don't even have a vending machine for soda. We had to leave because of a water main break, but no one in the hotel would help with getting another place to stay. By the time they told us there was a problem, every hotel was booked!

Location was amazing! Right by all shops and restaurants. Room was ready early, but we had lots of little bugs on entertainment center in room. Moved to different room in newer wing which took a couple hours to do. Got comped $50 but I felt it should have been more for bugs. New room was much better but no shampoo and missing soap. Wonder how clean it actually was.

I've always loved the Riverside Hotel! I used to live in FT. Lauderdale and frequented LasOlas Blvd, and used to always bring people visiting inside to see the charm. It has gotten much bigger now but the staff is welcoming, the ambiance is relaxing and you can't beat the location! Next time I may try the Towers but I was satisfied in the "old, original building"!

Great Hotel and perfect location

The Riverside Hotel was the perfect stay for a weekend getaway. Easy to get anywhere by foot or Uber since it is located right on Las Olas- close to lots of shops and restaurants. The hotel staff provided friendly and wonderful service and great recommendations for places to try by staff at the lobby bar (Ryan). Will definitely stay here the next time we are in town.
