A taste of tropical tradition on Los Olas Boulevard

Riverside Hotel holds the enviable position as the only hotel on Las Olas Boulevard, Fort Lauderdale's most fashionable address for boutiques, nightlife, galleries and restaurants. Besides the location, the hotel aims to be a one-stop destination for leisure and business. During a stay at the Riverside Hotel, guests can unwind in the heated outdoor pool, dock boats and dine in the on-site restaurant. Tropical-styled rooms celebrate the waterfront setting.

Highlights
  • The only hotel on Las Olas Boulevard
  • Close to Fort Lauderdale Beach, Port Everglades and the Broward County Convention Center
  • Boat docks for vessels up to 150 feet
  • Outdoor heated pool and poolside food service
  • Tommy Bahama decor and water views
  • Wi-Fi access in guest rooms and public areas
Rooms

Riverside Hotel rooms have a taste for tropical style. Guests choose from three types: classic style by Tommy Bahama; traditional, characterized by dark woods and floral prints; and executive, which feature tropical textiles and terraces that overlook the skyline, Las Olas Boulevard and the New River. Layouts vary depending on the room booked, but regardless of location, guests have work desk and pay-per-view movies. Basic Wi-Fi access is available for free. High-speed Wi-Fi access packages are also on offer for an added charge.

Dining

Riverside Hotel treats visitors to in-room dining and regional fare at Indigo Restaurant, open all day for fresh seafood, crisp salads and family favorites. Tasty appetizers also complement the full bar at Golden Lyon Pub, a favorite for fine liquors, brandies and wines in an upscale neighborhood tavern setting.

Recreation

A heated outdoor pool tempts guests year-round at Riverside Hotel--whether the mood calls for poolside cocktails or sunbathing. A fitness center equipped with Cybex benches, treadmills, stationary bike, elliptical machine and more ensure that active travelers fit in a daily workout even on vacation.

 

Looking to explore the local scene? Stroll to Las Olas Boulevard's best boutiques, galleries, bars and restaurants. And don't forget this South Florida must: taking the boat out from the hotel dock, which is monitored by security patrols and cameras.

What's the beef:

Don't understand the complaints. Three of us stayed in the older section as part of a package deal. The rooms were clean, well appointed, and quiet as Grant's tomb. One of the rooms had a problem with the regulation of the hot and cold water coming from the shower and when we complained we were given a replacement room in the new tower section. Indigo restaurant rapido and good for breakfast.

Perfect Location

Great location with excellent customer service. The rooms are a bit dated, they could definitely use a bit of upgrading especially the carpeting. But the price was good for the value and you just can't beat the location. The shopping and dining map provided at check in is very detailed and the in-hotel restaurant Indigo provided a decent menu and good pricing as wel.

Average accommodation, great location

If you want to be in the center of the action in Fort Lauderdale, this hotel is a great choice. You walk out of the hotel right into the center of the action on Las Olas. The rooms themselves were pretty ordinary, satisfactorily maintained but showing some signs of wear. Great value for location.

Relaxing oasis during the boat show

Two initial rooms offered had terrible views. When requesting (demanding) a better room, received a lovely room with view and balcony on top floor. Very much appreciated and enjoyed. Great area and amenities all close by makes a working stay feel like a vacation. Staff were all great!

Good location

It's near everything. It worked great for me for a business trip but I'm sure it'll do the same for leisure. Staff is very nice also.
