Stayed at the Renaissance post cruise and found the hotel to be so convenient to everything. Shops are close by and beach trolly takes you to beach areas and Galleria Mall. It stops right across the street from the hotel and you can purchase a day pass for a minimal fee. Cruise port is just a few minutes by taxi....

This hotel is situated a 3 minute walk to the "Trendy" East Las Olas Blvd area, which is full of cool shops and great food! The hotel has its own restaurant that serves excellent food at a modest price. Well presented and tasty - worth the time to try even if only at the bar. I arrived just as the...

We've taken 2 cruises from Ft. Launderdale and flew in the night before sailing. This hotel is very close to the port and is a beautiful property. The rooms are more than adequate and the restaurant has a nice Sunday buffet. Start eating large before the cruise. A shuttle to the boat gets you there in plenty of time

Stayed here 2 nights before a cruise. Location is within walking distance of lots of restaurants and stores. Nice Marriott property with great beds and rooms. Breakfast was good and coffee awesome. No mini-bar or robes though.

We came off our cruise on the Sunday to await our flight back to London on Tuesday. As the Renaissance stay was part of a package we had not anticipated too high a standard. We could not have been more wrong. The hotel is ideally situated within 10 minutes of the port, albeit we had to blag a drop-off as...

We stayed here for an event and while there aren't any real attractions (which wasn't really expected as most people are just staying before they leave on a cruise) the staff was exceptional! Every maid, room service, the wait staff in the Bistro and those in attendance at the front desk and bar were not only courteous but genuine and...

Stayed here one night before a cruise. Did online check in before arriving. At arrival room was waiting with key cards ready. Copy of credit card and then headed to room within 5 minutes. Room was spacious and perfect. Everything was perfect. Free internet if frequent visitor program registered. Bed extremely comfortable. Cruise port only 5 minutes away. Perfect if...

This is a pretty good Marriot property. Found the service to be quite good, cooked to order breakfast (or buffet) was quite nice. If you're heading out on Princess it's a very short walk to the boat. If you're light on bags you could easily do it. Seriously it's like 2 blocks. Other ships are further and you'll want or...

Pros: Great service - anytime I had an interaction with the staff, it was exceptional. Location - plenty of places to walk to for meals or if you needed to shop for things you left back home. Sizable room with a good view out of two windows (corner room). Fitness room had plenty of cardio equipment Cons: $25 a day...

Thank you for staying with us during your recent trip to Fort Lauderdale. I appreciate your feedback on several of the amenities provided by the hotel. With regards to parking, the rates that the hotel charges are comparable to all of the hotels in the area. Our proximity to the airport and beach make this a desired location and our...

No, would never stay here again. We checked in on 8 Nov and were celebrating one year together...after a nice evening out, we returned to our very nice room only to find that the key didn't work. A bellman, passing by, tried his key and it didn't work either. Maint. was called and their key didn't work so he removed...

Please accept my apologies for the issues you had with the lock in your room. At times, repairs are needed on these locks and guests are moved to other rooms. Unfortunately, the hotel did not have any additional room to move you to as we were at capacity. Regardless, the situation should have been managed differently and I apologize for...
