    Best Venue Ever!

    If you are looking for an incredible venue for your wedding, look no further. The Riverside Hotel absolutely blew us away, and far exceeded our expectations! Cathy Fox was our coordinator, and she was beyond helpful. She was responsive, and was able to answer all of our questions. She made the whole process so smooth, we are very grateful for all of her help. We had the ceremony, cocktail hour, and dinner reception at the hotel. The staff at the hotel was AMAZING, from the front desk, to our server Tami, to the valet and bellhops. The whole weekend we were made to feel like royalty. Tami was personable, friendly and on point all night long. Our cake and cookie wedding favors were made by the incredible pastry chef, Sabrina, and it was by far the best desserts I have ever had. The hotel itself was so beautiful, and you really can’t beat the location in downtown Fort Lauderdale, on the river. We highly recommended the Riverside Hotel!

    Excellent Experience

    The Riverside Hotel was amazing in every way. Everyone from the front desk to the Catering Sales Manager, Cathy Fox made sure our wedding was flawless. Cathy was our main contact and she followed through on every detail from the first day we met while we were looking for a venue for our wedding. She provided a wealth of information for various vendors and services. In addition the pastry chef for the Riverside, Sabrina Courtemanche, made our wedding cake exactly as we wanted it, it was not only beautiful but absolutely delicious. Katie Plachter Donahue, Group Sales Manager, was extremely helpful in coordinating the block of rooms for our out of town guests staying at the hotel for the wedding. Last but not least the staff that serviced our wedding reception was efficient, helpful, friendly and professional, making our guests feel important and comfortable. We can not express our gratitude and appreciation enough to everyone at the Riverside Hotel, in making our wedding unforgettable.
