Every thing was Deluxe

Yes, your hotel is top of the line, Just Beautiful DELUXE One complaint Your parking garage was a total disaster. I was held hostage by the exit gates that would'nt open. Hotel keys just did'nt work. Parking outside was the only answer.

great overnighter before leaving on cruise

This was a great hotel to stay if you are going on a cruise out of Port Everglades. Close to the port. Rooms very clean. Staff very friendly and helpful. Taxis are ready and waiting if needed. short taxi ride to LOS OLAS street. Where there are great restaurants and shops. Food by the pool was good. Bartender very friendly. Rooms very clean, bed comfortable vanilla creamer for my coffee in morning.

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.

Great location

Beautiful hotel for the price. Very close to the port and airport. Add an extra $25 per night for parking though.

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.

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.

Less than a mile and half from the beach, restaurants, and shopping. Beautiful view of the waterway and boat traffic.

Our place in Ft Lauderdale - super nice.

As a couple we have stayed a few times at the renaissance. One of the best pools and hot tubs with privacy and never anyone in them. Great food and drink. Location is perfect along the waterway but a very short cab or car drive to LU LU's and other fun night spots.

Just a short ride 8minutes to LuLu's on the beach will get you all the people watching you want. And everything about the renaissance is very nice. You will be surprised how few people are in the dining room once you eat there. Good views of the harbor or waterway.
