We stayed here prior and a few days after our cruise, great place to stay very central to everything. We shopped, great restaurants close by - even try the Resaissance's pub/restaurant great food + service.. if you are looking for something to do.. take the water taxi which is located just under the bridge... to see all the nice mansions...

We stayed here the night before embarking on a cruise, and then rented a room for the day upon our return. This is a convenient hotel for cruise ship passengers, and the hotel accommodated us very smoothly. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, quiet, and nicely furnished. The staff was welcoming & efficient. A direct shuttle is available to the...

This is a very efficient hotel and designed for conference attendees and/or cruise travelers. The rooms are not large but are nicely appointed and have been remodeled. Very comfortable beds and new linens. You feel more like you are in a city hotel as they are trying to get as many rooms in that hotel as possible. The location is...

Good customer service is expected, but it's when things go screwy that it really shows. I showed up late for meeting and having found I made my reservation at the wrong Renassance Fort Lauderdale. Apparently there are two (so be careful). While I called the client to see where they were coming to pick me up, (I was at the...

This hotel had very friendly staff who were always willing to help. The room service was very good and had excellent choices. It was close to the cruise ports which was fun to see. There are plenty of stores within walking distance in case you forget something at home.

This is a typical, average hotel. It's a practical location close to the cruise terminal with a number of restaurants within walking distance. The rooms are clean although inconsistently stocked (we had to ask for shampoo, a colleague had to ask for coffee, etc.). A key issue is that the smoking area is right outside the front door so if...

Thank you for your feedback during you recent stay with us. With regards to the smoking area, we do our best to provide a location for everyone that is appropriate. As it is off to the side of the front entrance, this usually provides a comfortable area for all of our guests to enjoy the beautiful Florida weather. And I...

Beautiful lobby. Room was large but had no warmth - pretty much a big square space. Bathroom ok but I had trouble figuring out the shower and it pelted me when it first came on. Surprised that there was not a small fridge in room. Parking was 25.00/night. There are a few restaurants in the area, convenient in that regard...
