We recently stayed at the 17th Street Renaissance. The rooms have been renovated and are done well. Streamlined and modern with a homy feel. The location is great. Next to a myriad of really good restaurants, shopping and the convention center. The people are friendly and courteous and the service was adequate. All of our needs were fulfilled, some took...

We've stayed here before and enjoyed it. And it wasn't that we didn't enjoy this stay. But we did encounter a couple of things that don't have to be as they are. I'll start with the best parts. There are certainly bargain prices available here depending on the time of year and what conventions are taking place. When we checked... More

I drove down from the Jacksonville area with three friends the day before our cruise. We were immediately greeted by valet, who helped us to unload our luggage. Bell service was prompt and escorted us to check-in and to our room. The front desk staff was fabulous, friendly, and very efficient. The room was recently refurbished, and it was beautiful... More

I stayed here for 6 nights while attending training at the Convention Center which is across the street. It was very clean and the bed was comfortable. The staff were all friendly and helpful. They're in the middle of remodeling and I was in a room that had not been remodeled yet, on the 3rd floor. Where I was located... More

Thank you for sharing your comments. I am going to send someone right away to look at the ice machine and get it fixed. I apologize that you had to keep going to alternate machines. If you had let us know while you were on property we would have been more than happy to fix it straight away. I am... More

We booked for a one night prior to departing on a cruise. Location is excellent for this. Arrived late and had no problems in checking in which sometimes can be a problem even if you advise hotels that you are arriving late. We were able to eat in the lounge which after a long day of travelling was all we... More

Checked in the day before a cruise and is very accessible to Port Everglades Cruise Port. They sell a shuttle for $6 and is on time. Breakfast is available and shuttle ride is only about 10 minutes from hotel right to the port.

I stayed at the Renaissance for a week and was very pleased. Every day we would meet after our seminars at the hotel bar. Nice happy hour apps and drink specials. The hotel was walking distance to several good places to eat. There's a Walgreen's across the street and many other store within walking distance. The beach is a very... More

In my many years of travelling and many stays at hotels around the world, I have never seen such a high level of attention, courtesy, helpfulness and warmth as I did last week at this property.

We stayed here a day before our cruise and we loved it! Teshayla, the front desk agent, was more than accommodating to our needs. She's very pleasant and her smile makes you feel welcome. Our room was very clean, bedsheets were soft. The kids and my mother slept very well. Also, the hotel is near restaurants and there is a... More
