Stylish and Comfortable

Our stay at the Renaissance Ft. Lauderdale was very enjoyable. It was a short stay - only one night - but it was pleasant. The Renaissance had obviously been updated in decor, was clean, comfortable and the staff was great. Everything was in working order and the staff there were very friendly and helpful. It was easy access to the airport and to the cruise port. I would definitely stay again on a return trip to Ft. Lauderdale.

Weekend getaway

The Renaissance was wonderful. The service was great and I was impressed by the service and cleanliness of the room. I was traveling alone, and I always felt safe and welcome. The lounge and restaurant were extremely good. The only down side was the parking fee of $25. If you have visitors, this is the one downside of the hotel. They should come up with another plan for visitors of hotel guests. Other than than, I would stay there again if Im in that area. Overall, it was a very positive experience.

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!

Time-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

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.

Great Hotel...Excellent Staff

The Renaissance Ft. Lauderdale was redecorated and was very pleasing. The staff went out of their way to make our stay the best possible. The rooms were very comfortable and had adequate space. Big closets in the rooms. The hotel is located right across from the convention center and very near the beach. The whole experience was great while staying at the Renaisance Ft. Lauderdale! I would definitely stay here again.

Good Hotel for Pre-cruise stay

We have stayed here 4 time, always the night before a cruise. Two good restaurants within 1 block walking distance. Drug store across the street and liquor store 4 to 5 blocks away. So good location to stay at the night before taking a cruise. Also, the free breakfast buffet was terrific, but, you can't always get the free breakfast deal at this hotel.

Fantastic Stay

The whole staff went over and above to make us feel extremely special. And when our GPS didn't work, I called the desk, and the desk staff talked us to our location. The beds, sheets, comforters, and pillows are the best I have ever I have ever experienced. I seriously want everything for my own home,it was that comfortable!
