Riverside Hotel

Perfectly-placed Florida boutique

On palm-lined, porticoed Las Olas Boulevard you're likely to wander through an outdoor art exhibition on your way to boutique shopping, or bump into locals on their way to a Mad Hatter's Tea Party in an old mansion - and Riverside Hotel is the boulevard's only hotel. Just behind the property, Fort Lauderdale's New River stretches down to the Broward Center for the Performing Arts.
