We ended up at the Riverside for one night because our hotel - the Pillars - was still without power 11 days after being hit by Wilma. The Pillars suggested the Riverside which is a point certainly in favour of the Riverside versus anywhere else in FL - Pillars looked like it could be wonderful.
Riverside was fine and better than 3/5 but less than 4/5. Location is brilliant in the middle of unusual shops and millions of restaurants. Food in the Rib Room in the hotel is very good. Hotel service excellent, really nice people. Rooms are better than OK but in the old part where we stayed the rooms are small (but very well equipped) and the bathrooms minute. I reckon rooms in the new part would be better and if that's the case I think the hotel could be better than a 4/5. Ask for a room in the new part.
