"The Riverside Hotel" Riverside Hotel Tip by goingsolo

Riverside Hotel, Fort Lauderdale: 1,338 reviews and 3 photos


The Riverside (photo courtesy of the hotel's website) is one of the most charming hotels you will find in an area that tries so hard to be trendy. It has been remodeled, but its exterior resembles that of the 1930's when it was built. It is a popular place for business travelers and for tourists as it is located on the west side of Las Olas, within walking distance to the office buildings of downtown and the restaurants and shops of Las Olas.

I've never stayed here, but many friends have. The rooms are modern, fairly luxurious and on the pricey side, especially during the season. The golden lyon bar is a great place to have a drink and great for people watching since it is right on Las Olas. Indigo restaurant, the more casual of the two, is a good place to have lunch as well.

Parking at this hotel is complicated. The valet stand is located behind the hotel, which is the actual entrance to the hotel, on S.E. 4th Street, although pedestrian traffic enters from Las Olas . There is also self parking available.

Price Comparison: more expensive than average
Directions: East on Broward Blvd to S.E. 8th Avenue. Make a right and go one block past Las Olas to S.E. 4th. Make a left and you will see the valet on your left under the canopy.
