My wife and I live in the Bahamas and were traveling to the Keys last weekend. We decided to stop at the Riverside where we had spent our honeymoon 9 years ago. It was even better than we remembered. The valet welcomed us with a smile. As we made our way to the front desk at least 3 other staff member said welcome to "The Riverside". The front desk staff were fantastic. Terry Perugini and Wan (short for something oriental) Made us feel immediately at home. The room overlooked the river but we could also see the ocean from the balcony. We had a few bad experiences in other hotels recently because the beds were so lumpy we just could not get a decent nights sleep. Not the case with The Riverside. The bed was so comfortable we both slept an extra couple of hours. Another great feature about the hotel is its location. In this day and age when you have to really be careful how much you drink if you are going to drive, what's handy makes a big difference to your state of mind. There are a dozen fine restaurants within a 2 minute walk. There are also a few art galleries, clubs with live entertainment etc. within a stones throw. Breakfast on the sidewalk cafe makes you feel like your in Paris or Rome.
So we drove to Key West, had a great time there, and on the way back we decided to spend yet another night at The Riverside. Terry and Wan were again on the desk and made a wonderful fuss. It's hard to believe but everybody remembered our names!
Don't miss this place. It's truly a gem. You won't be disappointed.
