Experience tropical delight in this renovated luxury hotel
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.
3 Reasons To Stay:
  • Distinct style recalls the Renaissance-era tropical past of Florida and Fort Lauderdale
  • Convenient location just minutes from the Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport
  • Wealth of local attractions within walking distance, including the famous Floridian beaches and port
Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Port Everglades Hotel 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.

Most convenient to Port Everglades

The hotel itself was lovely and very clean. The breakfast buffet was included in our price which made it very nice. It was in a very nice location and very convenient to Port Everglades where we were going the next day for a cruise. The gentlemen at the front door were most accomodating upon our arrival and also in helping us get transportation to the port the following morning. Now the bad news. We had driven 10 hours to get there and were exhausted. We got ready for bed at approximately midnight only to have the people in the adjacent room come in a short time later. They proceeded to turn on their TV full blast and laugh and talk above the TV. There were probably 6 people or more and this went on for hours. Finally we called the front desk and they sent up security to ask them to lower their voices. After security left, we heard them say nobody was going to tell them how to talk in a hotel room and they proceeded to get even louder. Needless to say we only got about 2 hours of sleep that night and were exhausted to start our cruise. That being said, at least the security tried to quiet them when we asked. I really can't blame the hotel for rude actions of other guests !!

Fanastic place to stay!

This hotel was chosen for its amenities and location to the cruise port at Port Everglades. You can actually see your ship from your room! It is a great and luxurious place to relax at prior to and following a cruise! When staff made an error, they immediately corrected it and provided an upgrade and free lunch to make up for it. Staff very friendly, but professional at the same time. Pool is AWESOME! Bring your swim suit!

Its proximity to the ports makes it convienent! You can see your ship as it comes in! They have options you can choose from, such as leaving your car with the hotel and take a shuttle (fee applies), Taxi/car service, or you can simply check out and drive to the secure port garage located dockside after dropping off luggage with the cruise porters.

Mixed Feelings

The hotel staff were very nice. The bed was comfortable and linens clean. Everyday they had a featured ice water flavored with fresh fruit,( i.e pineapple, melon, oranges, etc). Very refreshing. The two things I didn't like about it, 1) There wasn't any free parking. They had a parking garage for $20 overnight or valet for $25 overnight. There is a shopping center across the street but there is a parking lot attendant guarding the area telling you that you can't park there. The parking spaces in front of the hotel are reserved for handicap (rightfully so), Valet, Remax, and a Bakery. 2)The room was VERY noisy. You could hear everything from the hallway and the room next door had a screaming child who would scream at the top of their lungs all day long.
