My husband, 2 kids, elderly parents and I spent 1 night here prior to our cruise out of the port. We booked on priceline and were going to be stuck in the older section with stairs. I contacted the reservation department who were great about upgrading us to 2 nice tower rooms since my parents are elderly and cannot do...

A beautiful hotel in and out. A great staff from the valet to the front desk. Fireplaces, yes two fireplaces are in the lobby with a Grand piano. A walk out the front door takes you to shops and restaurants on Las Olas Blvd. The rooms are elegant and the look over the intracoastal was perfect. The water taxi picks...

Tasteful, large rooms, with all business conveniences en suite. We stayed in the new tower. Business-Luxury. Walking through the original hotel, enter bustling Las Olas Blvd with quaint boutiques, bakeries. Enjoy spa services(excellent) and relaxing river walks. Hardworking restaurant staff served delicious breakfast on the Boulevard. We felt a real sense of community with a competitive marathon running by. From...

I had the best time at this hotel - from the extremely friendly check-in with Terry, to the beautiful room. Terry's service really set this hotel up for success in my eyes, and the amenities really follow up with that high standard. Thanks for a great experience, and I appreciate the free wi-fi!

We stayed for a night at the Riverside hotel on Los Olas in Fort Lauderdale. The location is great for window shopping and centrally located. We chose it because it was only 15 minutes from the cruise ship that we were boarding following day. We stayed in the old wing which looks a little dated. Average size room with heavy,...

Good location and a 10 minute taxi ride to the Cruise Terminal. The people at Reception were friendly, helpful and welcoming. Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable with a balcony and view of the ocean in the distance. The ambiance has a Caribbean feel. Try Happy Hour for $1.50 each oysters from 5 to 7 at Wild Sea.

My room was very large, quiet and well appointed. Slept great. The WIFI worked well. The staff was very friendly. Mine was a short one night stay. But I would not hesitate to recommend the hotel to anyone. Very close to all the attractions Ft Lauderdale.

We have been staying here off and on for many years and it continues to be excellent.We like the classic rooms and they are a great value. Compared to hotels around the cruise port it is often one third to one half cheaper. Uber to and from the cruise port is about 10 dollars and way cheaper than a cab....
