I have stayed here a number of times on business and it is my go to hotel in the area. It is a nice conveniently located hotel with easy access to the highway and airport and any number of restaurants. I have always found it to be exceptionally well run with great management and very friendly employees who are always...

Just got off a flight in Miami International from St. Marrteen and had to stay over at this hotel for business reasons. The hotel is nice and convenient to the cruise ships. The bar was modern, four or so TV's and we had a night cap before going to bed. The crab cake appetizer with a side of fries was...

Our Star Vista host cruise picked the Renaissance for thier host hotel. This was great although the great room rate was only good for 1 night. We stayed 2 nights so as to be at the port area just in case of flight delays or weather. We had to make 2 seperate reservations, at 2 different rates and rooms. Luckly...

We booked 2 nights before a cruise for proximity to the Port and water taxi. I have stayed at dozens of Mariott chain properties for work and personal travel and was not impressed with my stay especially for the price I paid. At check-in there was only one agent at the desk which made for long wait to only end...

We did an overnight layover at the Renaissance (2nd year in a row we did this) on our way back from the Caribbean. The location is perfect for this as its less than 10 minutes from FLL. The previous year, we had a layover for a cruise. That was even better as there was cheap transportation to the cruise terminal...

We had a 3 day training at the Renaissance - which had all the necessary facilities for the purpose. Solid breakfast (with pancakes) and in-house lunch. Several good restaurants in walking distance. The beach was great as well.

The Renaissance is located right across from the Fort Lauderdale Cruise port. It is the perfect place to stay before or after a cruise. The taxi is around $20 from the airport or from the port. The accommodations are excellent. The rooms are clean and the beds are fantastic. Moreover, the staff is very nice and accommodating. We've been able...

Very average hotel. Not bad. Nothing special. Survives easily on its proximity to cruise ships. Rooms are very average (pillows poor). If you are cruising out of Ft. Lauderdale, it is very convenient. But not a place to go out of your way to stay, otherwise.

A great staff that made my business trip perfect. From someone who has spent some 40 years in the road. This is top notch for the business traveler or if you are going on a cruise out of Ft Lauderdale. Highly recommend.
