10.0 Excellent
Pros:The friendliness of the staff, cleanliness and location.
5.7 Passable
Pros:I love the location and the fact it's an older "Florida" hotel
Cons:Making up the room was very late in the day. Carpet appeared to be stained and also in need of repairs. Surely a manager could be looking at each room on a weekly basis for items like this. Regular housekeeping staff are too rushed to even report items like that, although they should be able to mark it on a sheet somewhere. I also had A/C issues because of placement of furniture in the room. Once a chair was moved, the room cooled to a more comfortable temperature. There also seemed to be a lack of regular electrical outlets available. I realize it's an older hotel but that's something most travelers need.
3.4 Poor
Pros:I had a roof over head.
Cons:There were ants in my room. The gym was under construction but they never informed me. The front desk staff were less than courteous and were fighting when I arrived. The mattresses felt cheap. It was not a 300 per night experience.
10.0 Excellent
Pros:Clean hotel, close to lots of restraunts in bars. We will be back we enjoyed our stay.
Cons:Hair in our food we had order d room service. It we let the hotel know and they refunded us our dinner so they had great customer service.
9.4 Excellent
Pros:Loved that it is right on Las Olas Blvd and that right around the corner is the river walk.
Cons:Staff were very nice I just felt they just didn't go out of their way. I really didn't like having to pay for parking.
6.0 Okay
Cons:I would go back to the Riverside. But, I would only stay on the EAST side of the building and inspect the room carefully before accepting. Our room was in need of paint and repair. A charge for everything including parking. I still never figured out why there was no access to the mini bar in the room. In a hotel like this, I was expecting MORE.

FAQs when booking at Riverside Hotel

  • To reach the Riverside Hotel from the direction of Miami, start on I-95 North to FL-736 East and take exit 26 from the interstate to merge onto FL-736 East. From there, continue on Davie Boulevard and turn left onto SE 3rd Avenue. Turn right onto East Las Olas Boulevard and continue until the hotel appears. Coming from West Palm Beach, you can also reach the hotel via I-95 (South). Take exit 27 from the interstate and turn left onto West Broward Boulevard. Follow the boulevard until it turns into East Broward Boulevard and turn right after the Citibank onto SE 6th Avenue. Another right turn leads you onto Las Olas Boulevard.

  • The hotel’s 7-story parking garage promises ample parking space for their guests, as well as secure and roof-covered parking. To take advantage of their onsite parking lot and avoid long walks from your car to the hotel, you will be asked to pay approximately $30 per day for your vehicle. Due to the large parking space available at this hotel, prior reservation is not required.

  • Seasonal and regular packages can make your stay at this accommodation even more pleasant with a myriad of add-ons like pet-friendly rooms and breakfast deals. Benefit from transfer or free parking services with deals for the Executive Tower rooms, which include king and queen size bed options.

  • Guests can enjoy fantastic deals during Happy Hour at the Golden Lyon Vintage Pub and Preston’s Wine and Martini Lounge. From as early as 3:00 pm until 7:00 pm, the pub offers guests select drinks and specialty bar snacks for half the rate. From 5:00 pm to 7:00 pm, you can also enjoy Happy Hour with equally fantastic reductions at the hotel lounge. Open until 1:00 am, the lounge is a great place to linger and finish off the evening strong, especially as they feature a half rate policy for select drinks from 10:00 pm to closing time as well. A special perk at the Indigo restaurant is their brunch taking place daily from 11:30 am to 4:00 pm with $3 mimosas and Bloody Mary cocktails.

  • The Himmarshee Ballroom is 2,800 sq ft of decadent elegance, complete with wooden dancefloor and access to the Skyline Terrace overlooking the water. The New River Ballroom is equal in size, and both ballrooms can be subdivided into two smaller event areas. Another major highlight, especially for weddings, is the extensive outdoor space that the hotel features: The rooftop terrace grants access to around 800 people and gives spectacular views over the surrounding area. The hotel’s various meeting rooms can accommodate up to 50 people, depending on setup.

  • Whenever possible, the accommodation will let you into your room earlier than the allocated check-in time, but these services are subject to room availability. If you know when you will arrive, contact the hotel concierge to arrange a possible guaranteed check-in outside the designated times. Complimentary luggage storage is part of the hotel services, even if the room is not ready early. (Prices checked 01/07/19).
