The original tower of the Riverside Hotel has stood proudly under the Florida sun since 1936, although the hotel has grown and modernized since then.

Guest rooms have complimentary Wi-Fi and windows that open. Take a dip in the palm-shaded pool or kick back in a lounger; food service by the pool is also available. Keep up with workouts while traveling at the on-site fitness center. 

Fort Lauderdale beach is a short distance from the hotel's Las Olas Boulevard location, which is also home to restaurants ranging in price and style, as well as upscale shopping and galleries. Or stay at the hotel and dine at the Wild Sea Oyster Bar and Grille or the Indigo Restaurant, specializing in American fare. Two lounges are also on-site. 

From the Press:
  • "On Las Olas Boulevard, just steps from boutiques, restaurants, and art galleries, Fort Lauderdale's oldest hotel (circa 1936) evokes a time bygone with historical photos gracing hallways, and guest rooms outfitted with antique oak furnishings, ornamental palm trees, and a bold tropical color palette with a Tommy Bahama throwback flair" -- Fodor's
