I live in the South Florida area but regularly like to take mini vacations on the beach or near the beach. I got a steal of a deal on my new favorite site hotelfinderhub.com which got me about a 20$ discount compared to other travel sites. This hotel was not my first choice as I wanted something on the beach... More

There's certainly noting wrong with this Marriott owned property adjacent to the Ft Lauderdale cruise port. The room was clean and the lobby pleasant. There are many hotels along this stretch and your choice really depends on what you are looking for - since I have Marriott Gold status, the free breakfast in the club lounge makes good sense.

Very nice, clean, and newly remodeled hotel with a welcoming staff. The lobby lounge is a good place to sit and enjoy the atmosphere. The concierge gave us great tips for local restaurants. It's a hotel we will definitely choose again.

Comfortable hotel. Good service. Very close to the cruise terminal. However, do not think about walking to the ship. You still need to go by taxi or bus transfer (which somewhat defeats the point of staying so close to the terminal). Lots of comparable, cheaper options close by.

Front Desk person was very accommodating. Usually have stayed on the weekends when the Concierge Lounge wasn't open but this time we were there on a Monday so it was open. We had the opportunity to sit and have drinks with our friends that evening. Was a special treat before leaving on our cruise. Room was neat and very comfortable.... More

Fantastic stay for a pre cruise experience. We have been to FLL many times prior to cruise. This was our first time at the Renaissance. Hands down. The best experience ever. We will definitely consider this hotel for our first choice on future stays!

I was delighted to be able to redeam Marriott Points for a one-night stay prior to a cruise out of the port in Ft. Lauderdale. The hotel was spacious and clean and the staff very friendly and helpful. The safe in our room jammed and we were unable to open it. Thanks to "Raul" from maintenance, he had to remove... More

We just came back from our 7 day cruise and decided to stay here on our last day. I would encourage Marriott headquarters really needs to visit this hotel and truly see what their "brand" is associated with. This hotel is run down and in need of repair. The concrete has been skim coated so much that it's a trip... More
