"Invisible in Las Olas"
That's the second time we stayed there as part of a group trip. Unlike the first time, we felt like we were "invisible" to the staff, from front desk to parking and cafe personnel. First I was given the wrong parking lot directions taking me a good 30 min to find the correct entrance on my own. Group dinner Sat night was painful as one server struggled to service 30+ people (It must be said that he was the clear exception, working hard and being very apologetic for the delays). The bed was lumpy and the bathtub drain did not work forcing us to bathe in dirty water. Disgusting. I did notify the front desk but nothing was done before we left next morning. Speaking of mornings, breakfast at the front cafe Sunday morning proved that I was indeed, invisible. After patiently waiting to be served (and the table cleaned from previous guests), I had to chase the waitress down to ask for a menu. Another 20 min passed before I got to order my food. NO coffee refills were offered and yes, I ate on the still messy table. Needless to say, we won't be back. Pitty as the place is perfectly located.

The hotel is in a good location on E. Las Olas Blvd. The Sun Trolley comes close by and the free water taxi is just outside the hotel on the river.

"Not really worth the price"
The rate for this hotel is at the upper range for the area, but it is not justified given the condition of the hotel. The location is good and staff are very helpful. The bathroom was not as clean as it should be. Rooms are too noisy of you like to relax. No mini bar in the room, and the water coming out of the tap is yellow!

"Good Pre-cruise choice"
I booked 3 couples for one night preceding our cruise from Fort Lauderdale, and I booked van transportation to the port as the hotel's cost was higher. Hotel service was excellent, especially regarding handling and storing luggage, nice rooms, restaurant better for dinner than breakfast but latter because Las Olas art festival was happening in the morning. We were able to start our trip shopping and walking around on Las Olas and it was a nice pre-extension to our cruise.

Great location. Near lots of restaurants and shops. Hotel bar and casual restaurant had disappointing service. The nicer seafood (Oyster Grill) restaurant had great food and service. Room was small, expensive, and old -- although classic and comfortable. Overall, I liked my stay and will be back.

"Look Elsewhere"
We asked for a room with a view. The second floor didn't meet that request. $27.00 for valet parking was also draw back. The staff at the bar was accommodating, but the concierge wasn't helpful with directions to the Arts Center. Some of the staff with accents were difficult to understand. I'd rate it a 3 out of 5 over all for the money. $280.00 for a room without a view is a bit steep.

"Best hotel not on the beach in FL"
We've been here several times. It's our favorite hotel that's not on the beach. You can't get a better location in Ft. Lauderdale. It's in the heart of the haute couture shopping and dining district. It's near a stop for the water taxi that can take you to key areas along the waterway and harbors. There's the original hotel section with comfortable quiet rooms and the newer towers with larger rooms and great views over the city and river. The pool looks over the river and you can watch yachts slip by while sipping cold drinks. The staff is knowledgeable and always helpful. The hotel is always clean. The restaurants are very good, as they have to be considering the awesome restaurants in the immediate vicinity. They have a southwest breakfast wrap that is fantastic. If staying on the beach is not critical, this is the best hotel in Ft. Lauderdale.

"Worst Experience in any Hotel I have Stayed in"
I reserved a corner room as high up as possible, facing the river. I was given an smaller room at an different location. The desk manager said she had no requested rooms. The room felt old and worn. The hotel placed me among four rooms having a drunken bachelor party. There were high pitched screams (ever come out of a deep sleep because of a high pitched scream? - first thought is "who is dying?"), repeated slammed doors, etc.. I called the front desk and it rang for about 3 minutes with no answer. Every conversation in the hallway comes into your room. I had a wonderful view of the roof of the hotel. a 12 story wall that blocked the river. The room door constantly stuck. I had to throw my body against the door to get it open. No TV remote. The safe did not work. The confirmation and the hotel both say the room has a mini-bar. There was just the empty, unplugged frig. in a cabinet, and I could not pull the cabinet off the wall to plug it in. My sink would not drain. There was an odd musty, mildly nauseous smell in the room that I could never identify. On Monday, my last full day at the Riverside, I called the front desk around 8:45AM and asked that my room be cleaned before 10:00AM. She said she would immediately send someone. When I came back at 10:00, the room had not been cleaned. the desk manager said she just passes on the request and that it was not her responsibility to make check on it. Finally, the hotel did not indicate the remodeling of the two floors above.

"Don't stay in the older section of the hotel"
The tower rooms are very nice and for the most part, the staff are very polite and helpful. Whatever you do, though, DO NOT book or allow yourself to be given a room in the older section of the hotel. Although our room had been renovated, it was severely lacking in amenities, from no full length mirror to no wall outlet near a flat surface so we could charge our phones (although other charging options were available for those who routinely carry USB charging cables, etc -- something we had not been warned about beforehand), freezing A/C that could not be changed despite a wall thermostat and controls on the unit itself, no drinking glasses and a bathroom devoid of room for toiletries/makeup and no overhead lighting in the dingy bedroom area. The desk clerk on duty was less than helpful and said she couldn't move us because we had booked through a third party service and there was no GM on duty that day or the next day. We eventually got a call back from the GM, who offered us 50% off our next stay. Frankly we should have been credited at least a goodly part of our room fee and not held hostage by having to come back again to "claim" our discount. This was the first time we ever had a problem at this hotel. Usually it is very good. As long as you stay in the Tower and don't have any problems, you will probably have a nice stay. The setting on the New River in Ft. Lauderdale is very nice and the location excellent.

Everything about our overnight, from the room to the staff, surpassed my expectations. I'd forgotten how nice it was to actually have a glass glass. We were in the old part of the hotel, which has been totally updated. I actually prefer it to the newer tower. And being right on Las Olas is an added plus. Try it.

"Close to airport"
We decided to stay here because it was close to the airport for an early departure in our return home. Great dinning experience and you have options nearby. Lobby was clean and well managed. When I arrived to the hotel, I parked in a lot that I thought was owned by the hotel, but was not and ended being charged for that separately. So, drive to the back of the hotel where you will be instructed on where to access hotel parking lot. The hotel is undergoing renovation, so there is that dynamic to deal with but with no unpleasant discomfort. There is a great picture gallery of the original hotel back in the late 40's. The room was very comfortable and it was very quiet…we were on a 2nd floor, but heard nothing..and slept well. The pillows were a little hard. Room has a business like feel to it. There is a pool, but you have to cross the street for it, yet it is next to the river and fun to see the boats pass by. We felt totally safe in the surroundings….lot's of residential development going on….very trendy neighborhood feel.

"If wanting beach , don't stay here! Way too far!"
Hotel was extremely old and Not a 3 Star in my opinion. Had to move rooms as first one air conditioner didn't work. Rooms were so old, we didn't even want to take pictures. 2 miles from beach and can fare ridiculas . Bring lots of money for cab. Water taxis close by but lots of walking still to get to beach front after you get off . Will never stay here again.

"A better option than airport hotels"
This property is only 15 minutes from the airport but it is on Las Olas Blvd., which has many restaurants and shops. Could only give it a 4 star rating because we did not eat in their signature restaurant, Indigo or the Oyster Bar.The Golden Lion bar was great and oferred both indoor and outdoor seating on Las Olas. Was a great people watching spot. At least on the week-ends, there was a fabulous singer (and his 2 young daughters who also sang). Was a great experience. We had a balcony room in the Tower which was also a nice experience.

I booked my trip through Expedia. I hadn't been to Ft. Lauderdale before so I rented a rental car. The hotel is on the main strip, in the center of dinning and small boutique stores. The scenery is magnificent. High class, clean. The floors have a gloss that makes them shine as if they were wet. I couldn't hear anyone next to me nor was I able to hear the music on the first floor. Will go back again. We didn't need a car because the boat behind the hotel takes you to the beech.

Location is great. I know it is an old building, but rooms in lower section are 'dated and tired' - AC unit is a thru wall unit w minimal fan and temp control, carpet and furniture are dated, tile and tub in bathroom are old (but clean!). It is an old building and that is part of its charm, so just don't expect it to be a W Hotel quality. Staff is always accommodating and the location can't be beat, so if the price is right, and location matters, it is a good choice.
