A nice clean and friendly place. The front desk crew were very pleasant and helpful. Good location for leaving on a cruise. New carpet and talented entertainer in the lounge was a nice surprise. I would stay here again and recommend it to family

Great value. Rooms newly renovated very tastefully. Nice comfortable beds. Easy connection with cruise port shuttle to get you on your way. Lots of restaurants and amenities close by for pre-cruise needs.

We stayed here prior to our cruise trip. It was a great decision due to: 1. They provide free breakfast, WIFI internet to Gold member. We really appreciate it 2. It is close to water taxi stand 5. Use the back entrance near the fountain. Walk toward the Fort Lauderdale museum and you will pass Hilton hotel. The stop is...

Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with us. We are happy you enjoyed free breakfast and our location. I hope despite the noise from the ice machine that you managed to have a restful night’s sleep. In future please let us know and we would be more than happy to move you to a quieter room....

Had a hard time deciding between the Renaissance and the Hyatt for our one night pre-cruise in Fort Lauderdale. Both hotels were offering fantastic rates, but I'm a loyal Marriott guy and decided to go with the Renaissance. I'm glad that I did. We ended up in a newly remodeled king room on the 11th floor. It had modern decor,...

I stay at this hotel at least twice per month for two to four days each visit. It is a fantastic hotel, great service and more than hospitable staff. They are always ready and offering to assist with any need. The breakfast in the restaurant is fantastic. The staff remembers me and calls me by name, making me feel welcome...

I hosted my cruise wedding block here and everything was fantastic. I know that they were going through some renovations and I was able to request that my guests be put into those rooms. The hotel was great at accommodating that request. The rooms were beautiful. The service was excellent. My guests kept on commenting on how they thought that...

I just returned from a four day training session for the Census Bureau. The room was great, the service was good... My stay was completely paid for by the Census Bureau. When I checked in I was asked for my credit card - they needed a copy for incidentals. (I wouldn't have any). When I checked out they tried to...

There is nothing wrong with this hotel whatsoever, but we were taken for a ride and taken advantage off by the valet guy Sam. We asked him to call us a cab to go to the beach and a few minutes later, a van from "Quick and Safe" arrived. We wanted a cab, but Sam told us not to worry...

Thank you for your feedback regarding the transportation issue you encountered. The hotel uses numerous car/taxi services for our guests, normally without incident. I will follow up with the owner of this service as well as my team so this does not take place in the future as I agree it is unacceptable. I am glad that our staff were...

My visit to the Renaissance was in conjunction with a cruise in August of 2014. The check in process was smooth. The clerk was personable and helpful. Because of delays at the Atlanta airport we arrived late. The restaurant was closed earlier than advertised on their signage so we had to find a meal and drinks elsewhere. The nearby Bimini...
