Fodor's Expert Review Riverdale Inn

1521 Riverside Ave., Jacksonville, Florida, 32204, USA

In the early 1900s, Jacksonville's wealthiest residents built mansions along Riverside Avenue (dubbed the Row), and the three-story Riverdale Inn—well-preserved, with heart-pine floors, crown moldings, and guest rooms decorated to evoke the turn of the last century—is one of only two such homes remaining. Despite being more than 100 years old, the mansion feels pristine, inside and out. Some rooms have fireplaces; all have bathrooms with tub–shower combos or showers only; one room has a whirlpool tub. Complimentary breakfast is made to order each morning, and the inn is within walking distance of numerous restaurants, as well as the Cummer Museum of Art & Gardens and the Five Points district. Guests can also pop downstairs for a drink at the Gum Bunch Pub.
