The hotel is beautiful when you approach it. The pool area is lush with lots of palms making it a great place to just chill! The lobby area was nice and spacious. The rooms were clean, although pretty standard.

We spent a wonderful afternoon and happy hour with Carmese and Nadege Their service was fantastic ! Their enthusiasm and personalities added so much to our experience! They made suggestions as to what we would like and even offered to make changes if we weren't satisfied with our selections! We are a cruise group from Ohio State and they both...

2 nights at Renaissance Ft Lauderdale, and we received Outstanding Service from the staff in the Hotel Bar, specifically Carmese and Kervins. I spend 100 nights a year in hotels, and they provided, by far, the best lounge service I have experienced! Attentive, fun, and professional!

Carmese, the bartender was my highlight of my vacation! She is the hostess with the mostest, even though she is a bartender. She is an awesome spitfire! I would come back to Fort Lauderdale just to see her! Love her!

Wanas the chef is outstanding! He brought a sample of an excellent shrimp pasta. Highly recommended. Carmese was great! She was fun, energetic, and an all around pleasure to be around all night. Thank you very much for a great night.

Stayed here for 2 weeks on business and had a great time. I was working crazy hours so I didn't get to leave the hotel much. I probably would have gone insane with cabin fever if it weren't for Carmese the bar tender. Because I was working so much I'd have to eat downstairs in the lounge a lot. Along...

We like to stay at the Renaissance hotel the night before getting on the cruise ship. We are traveling fro Idaho so we cannot fly in and get on the ship the same day. The staff at the Renaissance is friendly and the hotel is clean and quiet. It is very near the cruise terminal so it is perfect. We...
