Reviewed 13 May 2014 via mobile

I love staying here. It is so convenient and quaint. The pool is very relaxing and peaceful. The staff is fabulous. Especially Deborah and Carlos at bar. The toiletries could improve. There are no robes in room. Bed is super comfortable. Food is great at all restaurants. This is best option not on the beach.

I was pleasantly surprised by my stay at the Riverside Hotel. I had a Tradirional Room in the older wind and it was absolutely gorgeous! I was hesitant when I made the booking due to some negative reviews, but I couldn't have been happier with my room. It had Tommy Bahama furniture by Lexington. I used to sell furniture for...

The Riverside is a very good hotel with above average breakfast and pool right on the river- great for watching the boats go by. Located on Las Olas Blvd, there are tons of restaurants, bars, and shops within walking distance. Only 2 miles from the beach, easy to take the trolly, bus, or we even walked there! Great location!

Great place to stay for a night or two especially for business or weekend trip to the area. The older area of the hotel is a little "antique" but it was clean and kind of neat older style building to go with las olas Blvd. Plenty of eats and shopping around but it's a good 25-30 minute walk to beach.

This hotel was rated 4 star on my work's booking system. But it's gross. It's old and smells old. The hallways are an old tile so all night and morning you hear people's luggage being rolled around. The carpet in the room felt dirty. The bed was soft and old. And the parking setup is very inconvenient - it's across...

I stayed here for a couple of nights for a business related trip. Location was pretty good as far as being able to walk to restaurants, so that was nice. Room was clean but nothing special. It was windy that first night, loose screen on my window being hit by one of the flags outside but I fixed it myself....
