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.

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.

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.

Fast Little Getaway

Would recommend Tue, Jun 30, 2015
We had a great experience at Riverside Hotel. The old Florida ambiance was beautiful. Being right on Las Olas gives you so many options for food, entertainment, and shopping. I also want to say that the customer service was fantastic there was a problem with our room and they immediately and courteously found us another room- and it was an upgrade. I have literally only one complaint: the beds are not that amazingly comfortable, but not terrible, either. We would definitely go back.

Great family trip

Would recommend Thu, Jun 18, 2015
Hotel was very nice and a great location. We had a tower room with a nice view but no balcony. Staff were very friendly and helpful. The only 2 negatives was the pool location across the street and only valet parking is available. Ate at the Floridian which was a nice walk away but best value on Las Olas. It has diner food with a great breakfast.

Great location but beware of events on site

Would recommend Tue, May 12, 2015
Lovely hotel exceeded our expectations, great for family, food on site was excellent and bartender friendly. Had to combine two separate reservations and that took quite a bit of time at front desk. Second night there was a wedding on the terrace we could see from our room until after 11 PM that was very loud with thumping bass, would recommend hotel but ask about being located away from events venue.

Great location, watch for special events

Would recommend Fri, Apr 10, 2015
Lovely older hotel in prime spot on Las Olas Blvd. Easy access to shopping, dining and had an art fair when we were there. Room was great, spacious and well-appointed. Only issue was that there was a wedding being held one floor above us and they played very loud music until 11:30 at night which made it hard for our kids to sleep. If there is an event, you want to ask for floor above 9 to avoid this problem.

Nice choice for pre-cruise

Would recommend Wed, Apr 8, 2015
Stayed one night at the Riverside before embarkation at Port Everglades. I had a nice room in the old building. Clean modern bathroom with good sundries. The location is great for walking and dining/nightlife. Not so close to the beach, however. They have a pool overlooking the river with bar/lunch service. The porter arranged a van for us and two other couples to the port, which worked out cheaper than individual taxis.

Relaxing after a cruise?

Would recommend Thu, Mar 26, 2015
This hotel is the perfect place to relax after a cruise. Lovely rooms and great service at reception. Had an evening meal there which was excellent. The riverside area is very nice,. Used the river cruise one day to travel to the north of the city and back down to Hollywood, Great! Bonnet House is very interesting and beach area just a bus ride away. Plenty of bars around.

Last minute stay

Would recommend Sun, Sep 7, 2014
Boyfriend and I had to fly in for a last-minute adventure. Booking was difficult to attempt via phone and I only spoke with one friendly staff member who suggested that a third party booking may save me some money after I explained our situation. We cabbed it in and by the way, if you cab from FLL here, make sure to have your GPS available so that they don't attempt to bamboozle you. Check-in was quick and easy, there was a noisy reunion going on, but didn't make it difficult to get us situated. Our room had a noisy A/C, but its an older room, in the original 1936 floors, so I was okay with not completely being updated. I was upset that our safe didn't work, and the front desk couldn't explain to me how to power it on for usage. Slept great. Restaurant was great. However, do not attempt to get a simple soda at the bar after 11pm, they were a bit rude. Other than that, our stay was lovely!

Sure thing on Las Olas

Would recommend Fri, Jul 18, 2014
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.

Dining

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.
