Very nice hotel, rooms were nice, room was clean, very modern, in restaurant hotel was good, checking and check out was easy, hotel is conveniently located close to the airport, cruise port, restaurants and stores. Slightly overpriced for what you get but still a nice place to stay.

Kudos to the Renaissance Hotel ! A most welcoming oasis before the next leg of our journey. We arrived early morning (8:30) from a previous cruise out of Miami fully expecting to check bags and wait for our room. Not so! Debra welcomed us warmly and handed us our key to a beautiful room with an view of the sea....

I have stayed here a number of times on business and it is my go to hotel in the area. It is a nice conveniently located hotel with easy access to the highway and airport and any number of restaurants.

Just got off a flight in Miami International from St. Marrteen and had to stay over at this hotel for business reasons. The hotel is nice and convenient to the cruise ships. The bar was modern, four or so TV's and we had a night cap before going to bed. The crab cake appetizer with a side of fries was...

Our Star Vista host cruise picked the Renaissance for thier host hotel. This was great although the great room rate was only good for 1 night. We stayed 2 nights so as to be at the port area just in case of flight delays or weather. We had to make 2 seperate reservations, at 2 different rates and rooms. Luckly...

We booked 2 nights before a cruise for proximity to the Port and water taxi. I have stayed at dozens of Mariott chain properties for work and personal travel and was not impressed with my stay especially for the price I paid. At check-in there was only one agent at the desk which made for long wait to only end...

We did an overnight layover at the Renaissance (2nd year in a row we did this) on our way back from the Caribbean. The location is perfect for this as its less than 10 minutes from FLL. The previous year, we had a layover for a cruise. That was even better as there was cheap transportation to the cruise terminal...

We had a 3 day training at the Renaissance - which had all the necessary facilities for the purpose. Solid breakfast (with pancakes) and in-house lunch. Several good restaurants in walking distance. The beach was great as well.
