This hotel is in a good location if you want to stay near the airport or cruise port. It's a nice hotel with out dated but clean rooms. Because of military benefits I got a good deal on a room on the concierge floor which included a very nice breakfast. As I said the rooms are out dated. If they... More

After reading a lot of reviews, decided to stay at the Renaissance because of the location near Port Everglades. Arrived in FLL by 5pm, nice welcome from the staff , really fast check-in process and in a few minutes we were in our room. Very nice clean room ; and quite a view from the port and FLL(specially at night... More

After booking through a third party website, we arrived at the hotel for a romantic getaway. The hotel said they couldn't find our reservation and agreed to call the number listed on our confirmation page. Apparently, the third party website, despite sending us a confirmed email, didn't confirm with the hotel. The hotel was on the phone with them for... More

This hotel is on a great location for an overnight pre or post cruiser but its not a destination property. Its been renovated and is very clean updated and fairly upscale but the rooms still have the popcorn ceilings and the walls are stuccoed. Looks dated. Rooms are well equipped w flat screen TV etc. Bar was crowded w 20... More

We spent one night before our cruise in March 2014. There is no airport shuttle but the taxi was only about $14. The hotel has a very large nicely kept lobby with courteous and efficient front desk personnel. We did arrive at around ten thirty in the morning and, of course, did not expect our room to be anywhere near... More

Stayed here one night before a cruise for the first time. I found the customer service from all staff outstanding! Everyone at the front desk provided great service (can't remember names, but it doesn't matter as everyone was equally great in their service skills). I also had great service from the Bell Men; and the housekeeping staff; and the room... More

We stayed at the Renaissance in Fort Lauderdale because the location was good, the price was more reasonable, and Renaissance is usually better than average. As it turned out, the hotel did not meet my expectations. We had a corner room, so it was quite sunny, which was nice, and there was a nice lounge chair, but other than that... More

We do provide services to our guests every day (unless a guest requests no service) so your room should have been on our daily schedule. The... More

The staff here is just a amazing. They are so accommodating and friendly in everything they do. Every question was answered with a smile.

The Renaissance Hotel is a modern hotel located near Port Everglades in Fort Lauderdale. We stayed at the Renaissance before and after our cruise on the Celebrity Silhouette and enjoyed it both times. From the time you enter the beautiful, spacious lobby, you can’t help, but be impressed with this hotel. The front desk staff is friendly, professional and extremely... More

We stayed here for one night pre-cruise and its a nice place but rates were a little high. Rooms were good and beds comfortable but rooms are showing a little wear and were a bit smaller than I expected. Staff were friendly. If you need a ride to the cruise port they have a table set up on Sunday morning... More
