The builders of the renovated Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Port Everglades Hotel cite the Renaissance era of discovery, conquest and trade as their design inspiration. The guest rooms, lobby, restaurant and various lounges feature carved wood furnishings, Renaissance-style window arches and colorful pallets. Despite this emphasis on past greatness, the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Port Everglades Hotel has a full complement of modern amenities, including a fitness suite and outdoor pool to take advantage of the gorgeous Florida climate.
Rooms
The Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Port Everglades Hotel has, above other hotels in the price range, a particularly idiosyncratic, yet appealing style that draws upon the influences of Renaissance-era architecture, fabrics and furnishings. These include period window shapes, dark wood furnishings with carved detail, and rugged, colorful carpets and rugs in guest rooms. Escape to a new vacation experience that, while different, is perfectly fitting with the relaxed surroundings of the city. King- or queen-size beds offer guests a range of prices and options to best suit their needs. For a slightly higher price, enjoy full access to club facilities. This includes access to the Club lounge during weekdays. High-speed and wireless Internet access is provided in all rooms, though use requires a small fee. Cable television with premium movie channels and news channels is also available at the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Port Everglades Hotel.

Great Find!

The hotel was in a great location. We were leaving on a cruise the next day! The hotel staff was always available and the bar was wonderful! I appreciated the complimentary bottled water when I worked out the next morning! We definitely plan to stay there every time we cruise from that area!!!

Convenient location

If you are going out on a cruise the following day, and just want to relax, is an ideal location. Nothing around to do though

good location for cruising

We stayed one night before leaving on a cruise. Location was very convenient to port with port shuttle for $6 per person. We arrived late at night. Hotel staff provided good recommendation for late night food delivery. My only complaint is that the hotel charged my credit card twice for the room, so I had to call to have the second charge reversed after getting home from my vacation.
