The independent hotel is a rare breed. I can say I am usually skeptical of staying at the independents just because I think the standards that the national chains have sometimes keeps the hotel honest. The Riverside has been kept up to national luxury chain standards.
Our check in was a breeze with all three rooms ready and all three right by each other. We had opted to stay in the newer tower (right choice) and the bellman had our bags to the room very quickly. During our reservation we had requested a crib and the front desk agent noted that request and said one would be sent right up. Sure enough, within 15 minutes the crib arrived.
The room itself was very spacious. There is nothing defining about the room but the décor was classy and modern enough. Our room overlooked the city park that happened to have Oktoberfest going on. We have a little child and you could hear the concert at night through the windows. Luckily, our daughter slept right on through it.
We also took advantage of the bar in the lobby. It was nice to be able to sit on Las Olas Blvd and have a cocktail. The staff was friendly and the valet was very convenient.
Overall, this was a very solid hotel. I can’t say they did anything to blow us away, but it no way did they detract from our stay either. There are prob. nicer hotels on the beach, but this is a very solid and safe choice.
