Riverside Hotel Fort Lauderdale ?


Recommended Posts

Hi Coka:) I have never stayed there but I have been inside.

All I can is "Location, Location, Location":D it is in the

PERFECT SPOT....directly in the middle of Las Olas Blvd with

tons of shops and restaurants on each side!


Enjoy your stay there!:)

My Mother lives in Ft. Lauderdale, so I never stay in hotels there but I've been inside the public areas and they are lovely.


The location is wonderful and the hotel is very pretty. They have two great restaurants - a formal Grill Room and a casual restaurant. I've eaten in both and they're excellent. Also, since you're on Las Olas you can walk to a few dozen other great places. I love Marks on Las Olas - fabulous food, though it does get too noisy. Lots of great shops, plenty of walking available.


Overall, I give it a high recommendation from every perspective other than the actual rooms, only because I've never seen one.

The Riverside is the city’s oldest hotel, built in 1936 on the well-known Las Olas Boulevard dining and shopping district. To the back of the hotel is the river bank and its constantly changing water traffic. It's a beautiful property.

Ask for a room in the new "tower" as it is a more updated section then the original. ;)

Well all right! If the fashionistas say I picked a great hotel, then I picked a great hotel! I read reviews on tripadvisor and they were all favorable too. I attended a conference in FLL and remember walking Los Olas Boulevard. I found a great cocktail dress at a funky boutique, ate at a restaurant called Mangos, and the beach is at the end of street.


I am very excited now. Thanks for the tip on room request.


Although, do I need to change my 6am flight? I am hoping to eat a nice meal and get a good night's sleep on the Sunday night after cruise... Or, will I hear music...see lights...find a crowd...and be drawn out until it is time to go to airport? LOL


Thanks everyone!
