This is my third time to stay at this property and it was great as always. Since my last visit three years ago, they have remodeled and the property is even more pristine and elegant than before. The staff are friendly and it is in a great location with nearby shopping and dining, plus the ever important cruise terminal. They...

Had a recent two night stay at the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale. It is an OK hotel. On the positive side, the staff was very friendly and well trained. Also, if you don't have a car there are a couple of decent restaurants right across the parking lot (Bimibi Boatyard & Bravo Ristorante) plus a couple of pubs within 1/2 mile....

We were leaving on a cruise from Ft. Lauderdale and booked a night here the night before. The website says it's convenient to the port and they were right. We delayed and got there late, but everyone on staff was very personable and professional including the gentleman at the front desk, bellman, valet, and the bartender. Since we got in...

We stayed here the night before embarking on a cruise, and then rented a room for the day upon our return. This is a convenient hotel for cruise ship passengers, and the hotel accommodated us very smoothly. The rooms are very comfortable, clean, quiet, and nicely furnished. The staff was welcoming & efficient. A direct shuttle is available to the...

This is a very efficient hotel and designed for conference attendees and/or cruise travelers. The rooms are not large but are nicely appointed and have been remodeled. Very comfortable beds and new linens. You feel more like you are in a city hotel as they are trying to get as many rooms in that hotel as possible. The location is...

Good customer service is expected, but it's when things go screwy that it really shows. I showed up late for meeting and having found I made my reservation at the wrong Renassance Fort Lauderdale. Apparently there are two (so be careful). While I called the client to see where they were coming to pick me up, (I was at the...

Me, my husband, and two children ages 10 and 12 stayed here for one night before our cruise. It is very conveniently located to the port.

This hotel had very friendly staff who were always willing to help. The room service was very good and had excellent choices. It was close to the cruise ports which was fun to see. There are plenty of stores within walking distance in case you forget something at home.
