"Good Hotel but could be better"
The food and the staff were great. However, my 3-yr old spilled juice on the bed. We asked that the sheets be changed and they were not. To me, that was not good service. Besides that, we enjoyed our stay at the hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The hotel was fine and served the purpose of the trip. It was clean, the staff were friendly and quite helpful and the food in the restraurant was good. It is well located for business and shopping purposes.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel was very comfortable with a nice bed and upscale linens. It was clean too. Nearby restsurant selection was excellent as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Avoid if you don't have to stay on Las Olas"
I reserved a basic standard room which was located on second floor. The room looked and smelled gross. The decor was so vintage, like grandma grandpa type. for $130 a night, that wasn't what i expected. So I upgraded the room to the executive room for an extra $25/day. Room was a lot bigger, looked cleaner, bathroom was double the size, had a balcony […] with a nicer view. But for that price, hotel did not have slippers (which hotel nowadays doesn't offer slippers?). Hair dryer was soooooo disgusting with hair and dirt hanging. At least make an effort to clean! Pool is not connection to the hotel. You have walk outside and across the street. (HUUUUH???) Location is central so that is a plus. Staff was very accommodating and helpful. But I definitely won't stay at Las Olas again Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"On Las Olas - great restaurants at your doorstep"
There one night only but it was perfect - staff wonderful and all in line with the way a top flight hotel is runGenuine Expedia guest review
My wife and I stayed at the Riverside Hotel in May and I recommended it to my friends when we decided to attend a concert. It was ideal for bar hopping and offered a variety of restaurants to satisfy any and every appetite. My buddies and I intend on visiting and staying at Riverside next time we are in town.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great position for Restaurants. Friendly staff.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Charming, Comfortable and Affordable"
We stayed for ten nights. The hotel is located in the heart of Los Olas Boulevard and has a plethora of delicious eateries in walking distance. The bar and wait staff at the hotel were very friendly. The housekeeping staff were on top of our every need. The hotel buitl in the 1930's has wonderful tile floors and a very comfortable lobby and sitting […] area. The fitness room was an added bonus as well as the secluded pool area. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"The Best of Fort Lauderdale"
The location of the Riverside Hotel is exceptional. We were amazed to see how close we were to top restaurants, nightlife and shops. Will definitely stay at this hotel again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Fantastic Staff, Amazing Location"
Walking into the hotel, my friend and I were immediately greeted by a warm and jovial staff led by Kirk, who would cater to our needs for the rest of our stay. All who assisted us exhibited unfaltering calm and respect. They were very knowledgeable about the area (Las Olas) and specific eateries. Our room was very large, and it included an unparalleled […] view of the downtown to the West, with Broward blvd's business district to the North and the cnaal to the South. It was a beautiful scene, and, on account of that, my friend and I may have spend more time on our balcony gazing at the lights than we did at the nearby clubs and bars. The bathroom was spacious and tastefully designed. The only irritation was the refrigerator, which can only be accessed with a $10 fee. This seemed out of place in a hotel that otherwise seemed to strive for generosity and comfort above all else. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"able to walk to wonderful night-life"
would go back to this hotel in a heartbeat. it's very warm and inviting with an old-world charm. very pleasant staff and right in the middle of the action of downtown ft. lauderdale.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
It was excellent to be staying in such a clean hotel right on Las Olas. The hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful. The maintenance guy even came right to the room to check on our AC which was too cold. He was very polite and kind in showing us how to use the thermostat - silly us! The front desk staff were very professional and helpful as were […] the valets. My only complaint would be that the bathroom was too small for more than one person to get ready at the same time. I would stay again :-) Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to Beaches"
The stay was great very clean, staff seemed a little confused at night. I asked if there was any where to eat around midnight when I got in, they sent me to a place that they said had great food and would be open, walked the 2 blocks to find out they were closed. Staff should probably know what in the neighborhood around them.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Excellent location with great views"
we were very satisfied with most of the accommodations. The restaurant/bar service was a bit slow. Our room was not serviced the 1st night of our stay. Towels were sent up promptly when I called however the bed was not made and toiletries were not replaced. (it was after midnight and the staff did apologize)Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel, NOT on the beach."
My wife and I do getaways on our anniversary. This one was precisely away from the beach, to avoid the crowds and noise for a change. It was great. Las Olas Boulevard has plenty of restaurants, shops and activities (river cruises, water taxi, and such), but there's no constantly bumping into others as you walk around. And, what the heck, the beach is […] only 2 miles (exactly) away, so we did choose that scene one night. Bring a bike for a perfect get-around; alternately, you have in-and-out of the parking garage or the city's trolley for 50 cents ($2 all day). The hotel is located smack in the middle of the off-beach scene, with easy access to all of Ft. Lauderdale. Its new executive tower is very clean and elegant. The staff is professionally friendly and effective. My wife and I have yet to visit the same hotel twice, but we certainly recommend this one to family, friends and you.

"Old Ft. Lauderdale"
Hotel had everything I needed for a very enjoyable stay. Great location on Las Olas Boulevard. Easily accessible to beach, shopping, downtown. Bike share station right next to hotel. I stayed in the old part of the historic Riverside Hotel. Room was comfortable, clean and equipped with free wifi, flat screen TV, safe for valuables, mini bar, ice machine […] close by. Very reasonably priced. Abundant restaurants in hotel and all along Las Olas, lots of shopping, water front parks, all within easy walking distance. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Located in the heart of Las Olas!"
We stayed in the newer part of the hotel. Room was spacious and very clean. Had a beautiful view of downtown Ft . Lauderdale! We even did a late check out without an extra charge. Would definitely stay there again!Genuine Expedia guest review

Love the older section. I wouldn't stay in the tower. Bartender wasn't all that attentive. acted like u wasn't there. had to wait way too long and ended up that another younger fellow gut my glass of wine.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Not a good service..."
They charge 23 USD per night for Valet Service and Valet drivers asks you to collect your own car from across the Street. This is unacceptable. Golden Lyon Bar tenders are extremely unfriendly. They work unwillingly service is taking too long. every morning 6 a.m. housekeeping walks on the coridors with a loud troleys and speaks with each other really […] loud. I woke up every morning 6 a.m. :( RFood in the restaurant are low quality. The only great thing about this hotel is, it is in the city center and near other good restaurants. I dont think I will be back for my vacation in October this year for 10 days...:( Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"A nice place to stay on Las Olas Boulevard"
I stayed here to experience the ambience of Fort Lauderdale's oldest hotel. I was very happy with the traditional room in the original section of the hotel.The hotel amenities were more than adequate and the lobby has a charm of its own. My room was very clean and comfortable. The location is ideal since you are right in the heart of the Las Olas neighborhood....many […] restaurants, shops and attractions within walking distance (Museum of Art, Broward Center for the Performing Arts, and the Museum of Science, and historic buildings.) It's a fun place to stay with access to the water taxi and the sun trolley. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful business stay"
Riverside Hotel is not only incredibly convenient, located on Las Olas, with plenty of restaurants and boutiques to walk to, but the hotel was very nicely maintained. I stayed in the older section, and found my room very comfortable. Also, this was a real deal! I got my room for less than $100/night. You cannot beat the price to quality ratio. Wireless […] internet in room and a business center, plus gym and pool were all fantastic. The only two downsides: shower head was ridiculously small for the bath, and you have to pay for parking. Otherwise, perfect stay. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Everything was just fine. I stayed in the original part of the hotel, which is dated, but nicely appointed. There aren't many amenities in the room, simply a tv. Situated on Las Olas Boulevard, you can walk outside the hotel and find yourself surreounded by restaurants and shops, like a 5th Ave Naples setting. Really neat.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"AWESOME HOTEL FOR SHOPPING & DINING"
My husband & I was in Florida for a wedding. The wedding was 30mins. away. We wanted to be close to airport. So I liked some of the reviews about this place. This hotel is a great location for shopping dining & entertainment. You don't even have to get in your car. You just walk right outside your door & you are in the mist of everything. It was always […] busy but it was pleasant. I do believe some of the shops are pricey. We paid $12 for 2 icecream cones but I must say it was good, it was $5 for a bottle of water from the hotel. The hotel lobby is nice & more updated than our room. Our room was dated. I notice that they have differ elevators to differ rooms n hotel. I think that we located in an older part of hotel. We booked with Expedia. The hotel lobby just didn't match our room. The other thing is parking it was $17 a day. These were just a few things nothing major. I would definitely stay here again:-) Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"In a lovely location"
Thoroughly enjoyed itGenuine Hotels.com guest review
This is the place to stay in ft. Lauderdale. It close to the beach, but what’s very nice is you walk through the beautiful hotel lobby have a drink at their nice bar or eat at their restaurant right on Las Olas with live music or you can walk easily to any of the other shops and restaurants. The hotel was very clean, accommodating and service was first […] rate. The Bed and linens were very comfortable. The Valet service was also top notch. We had a tower room with a balcony and it was very nice. Its 4 minutes to the beach via driving. You also can walk along river side which is a very nice or take the water taxi. I would not hesitate to stay there again. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
The only bad thing it should have its own parking garage instead of having to pay everyday to valet or self park that was the only down fall.Genuine Expedia guest review
Total disappointed we reserved a king bed and got a full. We wanted something to drink and they have no vending machines it cost us 8 dollars for a bottle of water and a bottle of Pepsi. The room was so small we could not move around at the same time. Would never stay here again or recommend it to anyone.Genuine Expedia guest review
