Perfect on every single level ...

It is a getaway with a night life convenient to everything. Loved every moment of every second we were there for an entire week. It is beautiful, well situated, old glamour with updated conveniences. I did not want to leave.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

We started going to the bakery for sandwiches and coffee and having them at the pool and it was a big savings since our first day breakfast was about $60 for 3 people.

Personal attention

Yearly , sometimes twice a year I stay here when visiting family. It is convenient to water taxi if I want to go downtown or to the beach and just five minutes from my son's home. That was the first reason I stayed there, but the staff at desk and housekeeping and staff at Indigo are always wonderful for my breakfast. Love it

Sure thing on Las Olas

Bottom line description: Clean rooms and common spaces, excellent, attentive, friendly staff, tasteful furnishings, and superb communication by employees with a guest-centered focus. We had a wonderful stay at this comfortable, well kept, clean hotel. Note that parking will be an extra expense (about $21/day for the adjoining parking garage), but with the very reasonable price of rooms at the Riverside hotel, this necessary add-on for those who have a car is not overly burdensome. I was told that a remodeling project is in the works for hotel rooms, which surprised me, given the fine shape that the hotel is in. A family enterprise, as opposed to a franchise or chain, the owners obviously care a great deal about maintaining their popularity and desirability. Wonderful location on Las Olas Blvd, in the heart of a vibrant retail and commercial district with many high quality amenities nearby. Only 2 miles to the beach, you can see the historic Stranahan House next door and take a stroll on the public river walk as boats and yachts traverse the busy waterway just yards away.

Although we didn't beat at the Riverside, I hear the good is good. Don't miss breakfast or brunch at La Bonne Crepe, across the street. Superb preparation at terribly reasonable prices.

Wish We Could Have Stayed Longer

Wonderful! The staff was friendly, the room was comfortable, and the location was amazing. The hotel is located in Downtown Las Olas so we could walk to restaurants, shops, and the park. We only stayed one night, next time we visit we will definately stay longer.

Family Gathering

The room was very small, very big walk in closet. Not a lot of ammenities but centrally located in the heart of downtown. Two suitcase stands, AC unit ok, small bathroom. Somewhat pricey for the room quality. Obviously they are charging you for the location more than anything. The east wing of the hotel is old where the lobby and first floor is all new and renovated. Not bad for a building made in 1936.

Las Olas offers two atmospheres: the singles side and the couples and family side. If you go west of US-1 you will be in party central. If you stay east of US-1 lots of restaurants, shopping and shopping available.
