Awesome Mother Daughter Trip

Hotel was gorgeous! Clean, modern decor! Very acomodating staff! Friendly staff helped with recommendations and directions. Requested a refrigerator, and a fan- Brought it right up to us! Enjoyed the clean pool & hot tub. Gave us a discount on self parking! Loved the "cucumber water" & orange water in the afternoons! Loved it! Would definately stay again!

Galleria Mall & Sawgrass Mills malls are both higher end shopping. We spent more time driving there than we did actual shopping there.

Hotel Renaissance

It was an overnight stay. I felt very comfortable. The amenities did not include a shower cap or mouthwash. Otherwise, a very good hotel.

Outstanding for Pre-Cruise Stay

Beautiful property. Greeted and assisted by knowledgeable bellhop, checked in by engaging front desk staff, and enjoyed two nights at this great hotel. Room was well-appointed and clean and the bed was soooo comfortable! Location is perfect for cruisers. Drug store right across the street; hotel restaurant excellent and tons of other restaurants within a half mile; grocery and wine store within a half mile; right on trolley line to beaches; and contract vans on site to take you to the ship on your schedule for $6 per person. Perfect!!

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

The hop-on, hop-off Sun Trolley that passes right by the hotel is great! It's only 50 cents per person and you can even get a coupon off of their website to cut that in half!

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.
