We had a great stay at the Riverview Hotel, waterfront room, second floor, beautiful view of the intra-coastal waterway and right on their beachfront main street. It was, unfortunately, a rainy weekend, but that made it perfect for reading, enjoying their free coffee and cookies, and the on-property restaurant (which had the best patty-melt I have ever tasted!). We had a problem with the newly installed air conditioner and management was very responsive to the problem, and the owner personally called to assure that our experience was nothing short of outstanding. You just don't find that level of service at franchise hotels. They are updating all the rooms and each new room looks great! We did not try out the spa, but that will have to wait until our next trip!

We spent a couple of nights at The Riverview Hotel and had a lovely time. Even with cold, rainy weather, the weekend in New Smyrna Beach was terrific. Our hotel room was very luxurious (great bed and sheets!), the staff were friendly and helpful, the location is central to NSB's great "main street", and the restaurant next door was yummy. We would stay here again for sure.

The title may seem like an oxymoron, but the Riverview Hotel managed to combine the quaintness of a bed and breakfast with the luxury of an upscale hotel. Our stay was more than we could have asked for, and the staff was VERY friendly and full of suggestions for fun things to do and see! The location is perfect for a night out, no driving needed. Restaurants and beach are walking distance! We will definitely be going back next time we are in New Smyrna!

Had a very enjoyable stay at The Riverview Hotel. Beautiful room with a riverview and a porch. Hot cookies and coffee in the lobby. A wine/cheese reception on Friday and Saturday at 5pm let us mingle with guests and staff. After dinner turn down with chocolates on the pillows was a nice touch. Continental breakfast served in your room or porch was also very nice. These people go all out to make you feel at home. Can't wait to go back!!

Room Tip: Ask for either a riverview or pool view. The pool view might be a little darker at night.

We check in the day after Christmas. I called ahead for a early check in, they were able to accommodate us. The room was beautiful, updated with all current amenities. It overlooked the pool with a quaint little poach. After taking a stroll around the town ( the town reminded us a of a small New England town, friendly with nice shops and restaurants) we returned to our room to a bottle of champagne and strawberries. We had dinner at the Grill next door over looking the bay, the food was very good. The next morning they bring a complimentary continental breakfast to the room, at the time you request. We had our breakfast on our little porch, it was wonderful! Everyday we had a spa treatment, the treatments were reasonable priced and luxurious. Their spa is not only beautiful with a waterfall in the center emptying into a hot Jacuzzi. The treatments are wonderful.

Room Tip: love the first floor overlooking pool

We spent one night and 2 days in New smyrna and found the Riverview Hotel to be absolutely charming. Our first day after checking in we walked the lovely street down to the beach and stopped at many of the small gift shops along the way. We had a wonderful dinner at the riverview restaurant outside overlooking the river. In the morning we enjoyed our room service breakfast out on the courtyard just through our french doors. The beds where very comfortable with the softest sheets, down comforter and down pillows. The following day we borrowed the hotel bikes and rode around admiring the cute beach houses and sat on the beach and watched the surfers. Absolutely would love to come back!!
