Riverside Hotel

620 E. Las Olas Blvd., Fort Lauderdale, Florida, 33301, United States

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 palate with a Tommy Bahamas throwback flair. Guest rooms are in either the original Historic Tower or the more updated Executive Tower. Penthouse suites in the 12-story Executive Tower have balconies with sweeping views of Las Olas, New River, and the downtown skyline. Enjoy quiet moments in the spruced-up courtyard, try the brunch at Indigo, dinner at Wild Sea, or check out what's happening on "the lawn"—20,000 square feet adjacent to the hotel sometimes hosting festivals and markets. The pool area is across the street along the Intracoastal Waterway.
