    Dock at the Riverside Hotel Marina then shop and dine along Las Olas Blvd in the heart of downtown Fort Lauderdale.

    The Riverside Hotel has a marina for transient and also long-term rentals. It provides electric and water. Location is convenient to Las Olas Boulevard for dining and shopping.

    Much like the hotels on Ocean Dr. in South Beach used to be years ago.

    As the ONLY hotel on Las Olas Boulevard, there's really no better place to stay in Fort Lauderdale. A unique gem of a resort, with international charm and outstanding food and service!

    Every Wednesday from noon until 1:30pm the Fort Lauderdale Rotary Club meets for lunch! Join them and give back to the community!

    Best place to people watch is one of three places inside the hotel in Indigo, the Golden Lion or Preston's. Read more

    Excellent location, friendly staff, fabulous style. I'm so glad we gave up Miami Beach's Ocean Drive for this. 100 times better in class and value.

    Great hotel with old world charm-Ask for a room with balcony in the new section over looking the river-Have drinks and appetizers at Indigo-Great place to people watch-Very European feel.

    Match your puppy’s paws perfectly into the paw imprints, left by local animals in the hotel’s foyer tiles from the 1930s, and they’ll scratch the $75 charge for your pet’s stay.

    The pool is rad -- river views, lush landscaping, free towels and poolside food and drink service. If you're a local, they offer memberships.

    The best thing about the place is sitting outside on Las Olas ...... Otherwise it totally suks !! The absolute WORST!!

    Best location on the boulevard. Dining, shopping and great people watching. Plus, just minutes from the beach and art museums!

    M/Y Freedom frequently docks at the marina here to pick up guests and/or host dockside events. Beautiful and convenient location; friendly staff provides excellent service, especially Dockmaster Rafe.

    Who needs a beach when you can lounge poolside and watch the yachts sail by?

    During the Summer of 2011 ask for the "Stay More Save More" special...savings up to 30%...enjoy the executive tower rooms!

    Every Wednesday the Indigo offers 30% off any bottle of Wine priced over $75.00... This is a great deal!

    This hotel has an amazing location but they should really modernize their rooms. Old is not cute.

    great location

    This place is great. Except, when we were there, the hotel had a propensity to set off the fire alarm in the middle of the night.

    Scenic hotel on the New River and Las Olas Boulevard www.amplificationinc.com

    Come and ice skate around the rink on Las Olas for $10. Now open until January 15th.

    Everything looks nice enough. It's so powdery fresh smelling, I can taste it. Almost too fake. My in-room coffee hadn't been cleaned out in God knows how long. Disgusting.

    The room was nice, it was big, the bathroom was huge. There was no fridge in the room which spoiled the idea of saving last nights left overs. Wi-Fi did not work inside, it only worked on the balcony.

    Loving Preston's, great service, thank you Riverside!

    Loved the Tommy Bahama room. Bathroom was small but fun with a large walk-in shower. Enjoyed Indigo for breakfast too!

    John Sampogna and Jesse Brightman will only stay in suite 1018. They met there, fell in love and birthed their first child all in the same room.

    Great hotel but don't bother asking for directions they don't know up from down they sent me miles in the wrong direction
