    Excellent coffee, and I need great coffee first thing each morning. The breakfast was wonderful. Loved the decor, the look of the hotel. What drew me especially was its location.

    A card in the room said to throw towels on the floor if we wanted fresh, but at check in no one told us that we had to sign up if we wanted our room made up and serviced. So we had to wait for fresh towels when we returned to our room.

    Our stay was a pleasant one beginning with courteous & efficient bellhops. The front desk staff were always available and informative. We lare breakfast at the hotel restaurant on site and had an excellent dinner at the Boathouse across the street. The location is perfect for walking day & night. We like that so many places are dog friendly and the Riverwalk ioffers a lovely place to walk in the morning.

    location, hotel restaurants, clean and wuiet rooms, beautiful decor. free parking

    takes a minite to learn the location of different elevators, but it’s a minimal distraction

    We would stay here again, overall good value. Lovely bed and favourable location. Lots of options, OK food. Loved the executive room and the way it was setup. What's more, they have high speed internet access.

    Living on a noisy street.

    We chose The Riverside because we had been in the lobby previously and thought it was very pretty and was also dog friendly. we were given a first floor room as they are the rooms with the tiled floors. The room was pretty and well appointed however the toilet did not work. They moved us to the second floor. They said they were having a problem with all the first floor toilets and it was suppose to be fixed. They should have checked them before checking us in to one. Everything else was perfect. Terrific location. I would highly recommend this hotel. Wish we had stayed more than one night

    Location, location, location..Clean. Nice staff. Pool.

    Perfect

    The hotel was situated in an excellent location on Las Olas Boulevard, in close proximity to a very good choice of restaurants (French, Greek, Italian, Asian etc). It was centrally located in Fort Lauderdale, with good beaches an easy driving distance. The hotel staff were very helpful and informative - on the day we arrived we were given accommodation that was on the small side for our needs but within minutes of asking about an upgrade, the reception staff relocated us to a far better room for a nominal increase in cost.

    The cost of the parking - USD 17 per day - even more if youy wanted valet service.

    The hotel situation in Las Olas is excellent! Las Olas district has multiple galleries, shops, cafeterias and restaurants and bars. The feel is slightly European. The beach is somewhat afar but a bus goes regularly between Las Olas and the beach so that the trip is easy to make. And the beach in itself is touristy and crowded so I didn't mind too much. The hotel has its own pool as well. The personnel are super friendly! I got excellent service! Just fantastic experience.

    It hoped to have the room with a balcony but was placed in the tower with a view but a without the balcony. The hotel is also quite pricey.

    The Riverside Hotel has one of the best locations in Fort Lauderdale. It is the only hotel right in the heart of the city on Las Olas Blvd, surrounded by shops and restaurants.

    The service and facilities were excellent, and the hotel was very attractive and inviting. We enjoyed the proximity to shops and restaurants and took advantage of the bus service to the beach.

    1. Booked wake-up call, but never received any. 2. Taxi arrived way earlier in the a.m. than requested by us. 3. We requested a receipt upon check-out which we were told was not possible due other computer operations. We left our e-mail address to forward the receipt which has not arrived to-date (5 days later).
