I stayed here for 6 nights while attending training at the Convention Center which is across the street. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. They're in the middle of remodeling and I was in a room that had not been remodeled yet, on the 3rd floor. Where I was located...

Thank you for sharing your comments. I am going to send someone right away to look at the ice machine and get it fixed. I apologize that you had to keep going to alternate machines. If you had let us know while you were on property we would have been more than happy to fix it straight away. I am...

We booked for a one night prior to departing on a cruise. Location is excellent for this. Arrived late and had no problems in checking in which sometimes can be a problem even if you advise hotels that you are arriving late. We were able to eat in the lounge which after a long day of travelling was all we...

Checked in the day before a cruise and is very accessible to Port Everglades Cruise Port. They sell a shuttle for $6 and is on time. Breakfast is available and shuttle ride is only about 10 minutes from hotel right to the port.

I stayed at the Renaissance for a week and was very pleased. Every day we would meet after our seminars at the hotel bar. Nice happy hour apps and drink specials. The hotel was walking distance to several good places to eat. There's a Walgreen's across the street and many other store within walking distance. The beach is a very...

In my many years of travelling and many stays at hotels around the world, I have never seen such a high level of attention, courtesy, helpfulness and warmth as I did last week at this property. From the front desk to the maids, room service runners, phone responders, bar staff, and even a high level exec who I didn't know,...

We stayed here a day before our cruise and we loved it! Teshayla, the front desk agent, was more than accommodating to our needs. She's very pleasant and her smile makes you feel welcome. Our room was very clean, bedsheets were soft. The kids and my mother slept very well. Also, the hotel is near restaurants and there is a...

Went for a convention and our group stayed here. Most of the stay was nice, rooms were nice with a great pillow selection but my view was of the roof over the front doors and it had lots of tools and tar smell. Stayed in my room one day due to rain and constant noise from construction. Last day I...

Thank you for staying with us while attending a convention in Fort Lauderdale. I do apologize for the noise you encountered while you were a guest of ours.

This was my second stay at the hotel. It was very enjoyable. The room I received was freshly renovated and you can smell the new carpet smell in the hallways and rooms.. The beds in the double rooms are queen sized, not the full sized beds at some other Marriott properties. Walking distance to several restaurants and minutes by taxi...
