Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel ★★★★

Mixed Feelings

Would not recommend Fri, Jul 2, 2010
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.

If you are visiting the convention center, it is a perfect location, as is the hilton. It is a very nice hotel with nice customer service. No complaints.

Good Hotel for Pre-cruise stay

Would recommend Mon, Nov 2, 2009
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.

Dining

Both an italian and seafood/bar restaurant within a very short walking distance.

Would recommend Sun, Aug 2, 2009
We were looking for a place to be safe and clean, we found most of what we expect. The room was just like the picture shown in the internet when we book it, the stuff is very very friendly and nice, the food was delicious, the view...PERFECT, my 3 years old son did not want to leave the pool!!!! We had a great time. Is close to everything walgreens, publix, and fast food restaurants...We just love it!!!

Our place in Ft Lauderdale - super nice.

Would recommend Tue, May 19, 2009
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.

Nightlife hint

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.

Stylish and Comfortable

Would recommend Sat, Oct 25, 2008
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.

Dining

The restaurant next door was good, there was a Starbucks within walking distance, and good dinner restaurants within a short drive.

Great Hotel...Excellent Staff

Would recommend Wed, Oct 15, 2008
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.

Attractions

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

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.

Nightlife hint
