      Great location in Fort Lauderdale. Close to the airport and Port Everglades. just a short trip on the 50 cent Sun Trolley to the beaches and shopping.
      Staff are very helpful and efficient.

      Historical Traveler Reviews Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel

      Classy place!

      from

      We stayed here from 18th through 21st Oct 2004 and really enjoyed ourselves. The quality of the room was high, bed very comfortable, everything worked, the daily cleaning immaculate. Used the bar a couple of times which was reasonably priced with excellent service. Parking @ $12/night, either Valet or self, is high but with the lot opposite belonging to the shops being watched by an eagle-eyed attendant from early in the morning, there isn't much alternative close by.

      The location is good with 2 good restaurants within 5 minutes walking distance (try the Bimini Boatyard) + a good Publix supermarket just as close. We bought fruit and a danish there for breakfast as hotel prices were a bit steep, even for a coffee. The water taxis are also very close but frequency makes them more difficult to use as public transport rather than just sightseeing.

      We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this hotel and Fort Lauderdale.

      A Fine Hotel

      from

      The Renaissance is a fine hotel, the kind a business traveler would appreciate. It is in a great location near the Convention Center and many restaurants. The rooms are attractively decorated and the service is good. I got a discount rate of about $84.00 a night and I would say it was a good value for the money. Rates can be considerably higher, however, so you would be advised to book early and check discounts for AARP, AAA, etc. You won't be disappointed, but who wants to spend more than they have to? All in all - no complaints.

      4 Stars !!!!

      from

      We just spent a night here pre-cruise and thought the hotel room was very clean and comfortable. Excellent location for pre-cruise. Got it for $85 on Priceline and it was worth every penny. We would stay here again.

      Nice Place

      from

      Stayed here as an upgrade through a florida agency (timeshare i think) for six days. Very nice place and very friendly staff.Good pool and restaurant (expensive!!). Many shops/take aways/restaurants within easy walking distance and water taxi stop 5-10. mins. away.Only critisism of hotel is that they charge $12/night for parking and although the daily room cleaning was fine the room in general required a good "deep clean" as desk/phone/t.v. etc. had layers of dust. Otherwise no problems with this place.

      Definitely worth it!

      from

      Absolutely no complaints. From the time we arrived to the moment we checked out, the staff went out of their way to accommodate us. All in all, it is a beautiful hotel that is well maintained and staffed with wonderful people. Also within walking distance to the Broward Convention Center a wide choice of restaurants. You cannot go wrong with this hotel.

      Beautiful Hotel, Excellent Service

      from

      What a gorgeous hotel! We bid on priceline and were very pleased to see such a nice hotel. We stayed one night prior to leaving for our cruise. The staff is very accomodating and friendly. The rooms were clean and roomy. No complaints! They even had a shuttle for $3 to the port. A taxi would have been more.

      Highly reccommend!

      Disappointed

      from

      Stayed at the Renaissance last month for one night, after a very stressful week in Florida for a family matter. Needed our last night to be very relaxing and stress-free. Figured the Renaissance has a great reputation, and the Renaissance hotels I have stayed in previously have, generally, been wonderful. Let's just say our stay here was less than I had hoped for. Our room was immediately outside the elevators - a bit noisy. The toilet had a high-pitched whine when flushed, the bathroom light/fan rattled and screeched, the room was not as well decorated as many Renaissance hotels I have stayed in, and seemed a bit plain. Had we been staying more than one night, I definitely would have complained and/or asked to be moved. (Probably should have anyway.) The saving grace was the bar - wonderful bartender who made an elegant martini, and arranged for our dinner from the hotel restaurant to be served in the bar. In a property with the reputation of Renaissance, and at a price that was not cheap, I expected a bit more.

      Worth It!

      from

      A wonderful stay! Clean rooms, warm & friendly staff. Great location. A fine dining experience in the hotel at Bin595. What can I say but the best.Thank you.P.S. will be back later in '04.

      Very good experience in Ft Lauderdale

      from

      Arrive for convention..... Though bit pricy as compared to neighboring hotels, roomw were neat and very clean and front desk staff was very friendly. Love the decor and the pool area. Only drawback was not much neighboring restaurants or stores but is very close to the convention center

      This is a great hotel

      from

      Now this is a wondeful hotel. The front desk was very friendly, rooms were clean and pleasant and the location is very good in the heart of Fort Lauderdale. We stayed here in August 2003 and the only thing we would change is the fact that the hotel offers valet parking only despite the fact there appears to be a large parking garage next to it.

      I think what we enjoyed the most was the fact that the large, clean and warm pool and business center with free internet access were open 24 hrs everyday. Nice touch. It seemed to us that Renaissance asked their guests what they enjoy/want the most during their stays and they delivered. We would highly recommend this hotel. There are many restaurants, grocery stores, bagel shops, etc within walking distance.

      Last night was dinner with "the girls" at 15th Street Fisheries, a short walk from my hotel and a long drive from Sandy's home where Kat and Catherine spent a leisurely day. Three of four meals were wonderful and four of four of us had fun. I am starting out with a bit of Kim Crawford Sauvignon Blanc and am amazed at what different perveyors think …

      All's well that ends well!

      ... The music was the best I've heard since Sea Monster, also in Fort Lauderdale, closed down a few years back. All old school disco, and gay 70's/80's classics. Had a couple of drinks, and the only thing spinning was me on the dance floor, especially when they played The Boss. DISCO HEAVEN! Got a sandwich and some lovely fried green tomatoes on the way home, and slept like a log! Adam's got his mojo back! Happy, happy, happy. ...

      ... a lot things to see and do it.

      Coral Gables:
      The Venetian pool. It’s very nice, but it is closed on December until February 1st for construction. I will try too in next week. There are many artificial caves and waterfalls. It is the largest public pool in Florida.

      I hope to help future adventurers and that you would have no problem of congestion due to Justin Bieber’s show.

      ... built up, and sometimes that is hard when you are going through a rough time because you know the other person can see beyond the bravado to the real you. And sometimes the real you wants time to work things through before talking. I think it is especially hard for a man to talk about what is bothering him, even more so when they are from a cultural background like Istvan's. As his friend, I was there in support, but knew he had to work things out on his own.

      However, my flight to Miami was not uneventful. Mid-flight there was an overhead announcement that medical personnel were need to assist in an emergency. I am a registered nurse and I willingly volunteered to help. There was a woman with heavy vaginal bleeding, lying unconscious on the floor. She had a history of fibroid ...
