We stayed at the Riverside one night before heading down to Key West. Very friendly staff, both at curbside and at check-in. Room was great, overlooking both the river and the boulevard. Only minor complaint--There was a parade about to occur on the boulevard, and accessing the hotel was difficult. I called to ask the best way to get to...

My husband and I just returned from 6 days at the Riverside Hotel. We loved the hotel, the excellent, smiling and courteous staff. Our room was in the tower with a balcony overlooking the New River. Great place to watch the boats. The hotel is close to the riverwalk which ended at a small park (spent our last day at...

We absolutely LOVED Riverside Hotel! The hotel is beautiful. Our tower room was spacious; only down side was that the hotel was booked to capacity such that our room was not cleaned until about 5 pm each day. The location on Los Olas is great! You can wander along Los Olas, take the water taxi or walk the riverwalk! The...

The riverside is a beautiful hotel with excellent facilities and customer service that matches the best luxury hotels in the country. This is the only place that I stay when in South Florida. The accommodations are great and even though I stay here often each stay is a wonderful experience. Very personal and a great value.

We have stayed here several times in the last 15 years. We like the off-beach location as it is not so crazy! The rooms in the newer section are large and very comfortable. Parking with valet is both easy and friendly. Lots to see and do within walking distance. However the street scene on Los Olas has changed. Half the...

We recently stayed 5 nights at The Riverside, our 2nd visit. Overall the stay was pleasant and we stayed in a tower room both times. The hotel is charming and being right in the heart of Las Olas and all the shops, is a great location. Our room was comfortable with a large bathroom. Do wish there was a walk...
