Thank you riverside hotel fort Lauderdale
Thank you to the front desk for always taking amazing care of my family and I . Michael the front desk manager and Patrick are two of the most kind and extremely professional people to deal with. My family and I adore staying here we feel like this is our second home due to the wonderful staff that works at the front desk also there is housekeeping Mary on the 10th floor is absolutely amazing she’s always smiling and talking to us. Everyone always greets me with such kindness and care they treat me like family and therefore this is the only hotel I will stay in when I come to Fort Lauderdale . The rooms are always very clean everyone is so professional. The Riverside Hotel is very lucky to have their employees especially as I have mentioned before the front desk. I also love the gift shop the woman that owns it is kind always opened for a hug and she has great things in her store if you forgotten something that is where you should go . My favorite place in Fort Lauderdale is the Riverside Hotel most of all because of the amazing people that run the front desk some of the housekeeping the bartenders in the lobby the list goes on 🙏💛

Dated Hotel with Odd Layout
Dated hotel with a peculiar layout. The room was ok, but not the cleanest and nicest, even when compared to chain hotels. Would stay again for business, but would also look for something more comfortable and nicer next time.

Great older hotel in excellent location on the New River. Walkable to downtown, Las Olas, Broward Perf Arts Center. Could use an update on the decor.
