My family and I stayed here for one night before our Allure of the seas cruise. The location was great. Our room on the 9th floor had a view of the port and we could see the ships docked. The room was clean and spacious. And don't miss Bravo for dinner. Hope to visit for my next cruise.

A very nice, well-maintained hotel in an area convenient to the cruise port. My family and I recently stayed there pre and post-cruise, and we found everything to be first-rate. The beds were super-comfortable, and I had a really nice view of the pool/cabana area from my room! The service (with the exception of the two not-so-welcoming older bellmen/doormen) was... More

We stayed here for one night before our cruise. The location was great. Our room on the 10th floor had a view of the port and we could see the ships docked. The pool was nice. The rooms were clean and spacious as expected. One elevator was not working for a while, which made the remaining one elevator slow and... More

I wanted a quick getaway from Miami beach with my girl and found the hotel through Expedia mystery deal. The gambled paid off. Upon arriving I was greeted by valet then on to front desk to the smiles of Kesheem, Tenneal and Zerodia. They were very helpful and made sure I was happy with the room. Overall service was excellent... More

We used this property for a one night pew cruise stay. It is certainly convenient to the port, and I liked the fact that you could make arrangements for transfer to the port on property. I also liked that they did not make you wait while they loaded a bus full of people. The rooms were clean, good restaurants close.

We stayed for one night, Friday to Saturday. Upon entering we thought "wow" this is a great place. It was good, but turned out to be only average. The room was clean and comfortable. I went to the lobby in the evening hoping to be able to get a complimentary cup of coffee or tea, but found they don't provide... More

Thank you for staying with us recently during your trip to Fort Lauderdale. I apologize that our offerings did not meet your expectations. We do offer complimentary coffee every morning and have coffee available in our restaurant and bar during evening hours.

Marriott may call this a Renaissance but you will discover quickly that it is nothing of the sort. Service poor (the check in clerk) Travis made Norman Bates look good. Rooms outdated. No hair dryer, iron, bathrobes in room. One of two elevators constantly out of order. I am a huge fan of Marriott generally but they should be ashamed... More

Thank you for your response and feedback. I trust that our ongoing communication over the past few days has assured you that these issues have been addressed and corrected. As I mentioned, the hotel will be undergoing renovations, which have already begun (the elevator upgrade was one of them). We will also be upgrading all of our guest rooms, pool,... More

In early May, I returned to the Fort Lauderdale Renaissance for a one-night, pre-cruise stay. Drawing me back was the hotel's close location to the port and the abundance of restaurants in the immediate area which made it convenient for area friends to meet us for dinner. Upon arrival I worried when I saw that one of the two hotel... More

This hotel is located close to the port, so obviously many of the customers will be going to or returning from cruises. Having said that, the hotel didn't seem overly busy when I was there, which was nice. Check in was fast and efficient, and the agent was ready with excellent dinner suggestions. The room was standard Marriott, which is... More
