Staff at the hotel go above and beyond! From the door man to the front desk staff. The room was sufficient in size for 3 adults. Great location with lots of shops and restaurants just a few minutes walk from the hotel. River tours available a block away and a great.way to see Ft. Lauderdale.
One bed was very firm, the other was saggy (like people were jumping on the bed).
Location and staff
I like the vintage feel of the hotel and the photos placed around the hotel. The staff was friendly and efficent overall.
However, I left a folder in my room. I tried to get it delivered to my cruise ship but they would not help me unless I created a Fed-ex account and called back to the hotel to get them to print out a mailing sticker via my fed- ex account. I was on a cruise ship and could not get this processed. I really wish they would have made it easier to get my folder since it had important papers in it.
Very nice spacious rooms. Pool was nice. Great location for downtown Fort Lauderdale. Internet worked well. Bar was OK. Valet staff helpful and friendly.
Fire alarm ( false) went off in the early hours of Sunday morning between 1.15am and 2.15am for approx. one hour so a really poor night's sleep that night. Didnt seem like there was anyone in charge. We saw some guests checking out, it was so bad. No apology or compensation offered, either at the time of the fire alarm or at check-out. Switch to turn tap to shower quite difficult to operate.

The dining options at the Riverside Hotel compliment the region very nicely.

The Indigo Restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner and has live music, weekly specials, and al fresco dining. The Golden Lyon Vintage Pub allows guests to sit back and enjoy the game while sipping an ice cold beer and snacking on delicious appetizers. Preston’s Wine and Martini Lounge is a classy place to sip a cocktail and catch up with friends or simply unwind after a long day of taking in the sights of the Las Olas Boulevard.
