Great stay! Would have preferred a better view than the roof and air conditioning system.

Picked it for the location, small bed and even smaller bathroom, with no sink vanity and a very small narrow shelf over the toilet, making it difficult to place your toiletry bag.

Best Hotel for Las Olas
We have stayed many times at the Riverside and have never been disappointed. The location is the best.

A Gem
Our stay was amazing from check in to check out. We stayed a day before and a day after a cruise. We (4 of us) were very comfortable in a tower room with 2 queen beds and a roll away bed. Front desk door men and porters were extremely friendly and helpful. There is a nice pool across the street attached to the Boathouse rest. were you can pickup the water taxi. Nice places to eat in the hotel, A beautiful outdoor and lobby area to sit an relax. You can exit on one side right onto Los Olas Blvd to find many shops, bars and places to eat. I will stay here again without a 2nd thought. S A nice change from a chain hotel.

Disappointed but good location.
Great location but got an older room that was small with limited plug in options that were difficult to reach. Critical with 2 CPAP machines and electronic communications. Wireless was available but you have to pay for service above the slowest level. The slowest level kept cutting out and even with use of two other sites that staff gave, continuous service for more than 3 minutes was impossible. Parking fee of $27 a night was a surprise and I was told Ft. Lauderdale tickets unpaid public parking day and night.
