We stayed one night before a cruise. We were a little frustrated because the hotel didn't provide a shuttle from the airport, but it actually turned out to be a good thing. We used a Taxi and it literally took us minutes from getting our bags to getting to our hotel and checked in. This is unlike the other hotels... More

Stayed here over Thanksgiving holiday. The hotel is fairly new, close to the 17th street bridge across from the cruise port. Within walking distance of shops an restaurants. Safe parking (additional charge). The hotel is still undergoing some construction - which when done will make this an excellent spot. The restaurant and the lounge are very relaxing and the staff...

I had stayed at this hotel although a different name a lot of years ago and pleased with the upgrade. The club floor was pleasant with a great breakfast. It is very convenient for last minute shopping especially finding a Ross nearby.

The rooms have been updated and looked very nice. Good pool area. Many restaurants within a 10 minute walk. The hotel Navigator scheduled a... More

We stayed here one night pre-cruise because it was in the airport/port area of Fort Lauderdale. Also, we could use our Marriott reward points. Staff was friendly, except the bartender/waiter in the bar-restaurant. Porter, an older gentleman, was exceptionally friendly & helpful. Room was "renovated", but definitely NOT to the standards of other Renaissance hotels I've stayed in. Terrible excuse... More
