In town for a week of business and booked a week at the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale. What a nice place, located just a few minutes from the FLL Airport and about a 10 minute drive to the heart of Fort Lauderdale and the beach! Check-in was great - greeted with a smile and warm welcome and in the room in... More

Excellent location. Close to restaurants and shopping. And, my favorite store, Ross Dress for Less. Fitness Centre was small but adequate, with free fruit available - nice touch! Our room had no fridge in it, but upon my request, the staff was quick to bring one up to the room. Front Desk staff very helpful. Close to the cruise port.... More

An excellent hotel if you are going or returning from a cruise. Beautifully situated by one of Fort Lauderdales many canals with excellent walks along the towpath. Because it is used by many travellers, there is more coming and going than at other Marriott hotels, but at the same time the rooms are at their usual high standard that you... More

This property is a far cry from the other Renaissance properties. I am a Platinum member with Marriott and they couldn't achieve basic check-in processes. There was a ridiculously long line to reach the counter, no Elite line, and then to top it off the hotel lost power and is seemingly the only property in the area without back-up power.... More

Overnight stay on our way from the dock to the airport. Liked the gym and the amenities. The pool and spa are were nice, clean, and well-furnished. The sleeping room was spacious with a decent view of the water and parts of the city. Close to food and the beach.

My experience at the hotel did not start well, and went downhill for the entire stay. First of all finding the entrance to the hotel was quite challenging. (I travel a lot so am not usually this challenged). the parking lot itself is horrible; it is dark, it is very, very dirty, and signage to the hotel itself is missing... More

Stayed here for a conference and walking distance from the Broward CCC. Comfortable rooms, great customer service department and fluffy towels. Not impressed with the internet prices. Other than that, no complaints. I'd stay here again.

This hotel is nothing special. No hot water first night, at over €100 a room you expect a warm shower. They charge $25 plus tax for 24 hours parking, then have the nerve to charge us twice. Pool area is tarty, no towels for a good 2 hours even though we asked twice. I wouldn't waste you money staying here!

STARWOOD: GOLD MARRIOTT: GOLD HILTON: GOLD Ft.Lauderdale is an interesting and typically overpriced hotel market so finding this property has solved that issue for me for many of my upcoming stays.

We stayed here in April the night before our Cruise. Check in was very easy, and the staff was wonderful! We will be staying here before we cruise next time. I was very impressed to see a hotel with continental breakfast on the weekends, especially with hot food!
