This is a nice hotel with easy walking to restaurants, The rooms are very clean. You have to pay for parking. This is a good place to stay if you are taking a cruise or if you want a nice place for a business travel. I think that it is a bit overpriced.

The staff at the front desk was very nice and helpful. They got me right in and to the concierge level. However, when I first checked in the room was very warm - as if the a/c had not been turned on all day. It took hours to cool down. Luckily I went out to dinner and by the time... More

Service wasn't the best here if it's a room for 3 then Make sure you have 3... More

Staff ranges from overly chatty and annoying to rude and aloof. Should be a middle of the road Marriott, definitely not a Renaissance. I actually preferred the location of the Plantation Renaissance but they are not pet friendly and I have a service animal. Not a lot of common sense going on here, just a few examples: 1. If it...

Stayed pre-cruise for one night on 8/1/15. Nice hotel with easy walking to restaurants, shopping and the water taxi. Room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. Staff was friendly and helpful. During check-in the clerk told me that my room had complimentary Wifi. Then she went on to say it was $9.95 and changed to another subject. Maybe... More

Stayed here before going on a cruise- there's a shuttle available in the lobby. Room was comfortable, pool was nice, there's a Walgreens right across the street which was convenient. Staff was ok, but I felt snubbed at the front desk when the lady told me that I didn't even have silver status (referring to the rewards program).

Hotel was more then okay with nice pool. Hotel is big and not very personal. The restaurant next to the lobby was a very nice place to stay with friendly service we enjoyed. Perfect for staying overnight before taking a cruise from Port Lauderdale. The Parking costs are 25 dollars.

Chose this property because of my elite status with Marriott but had the same average experience there as anyone else. Started with check-in when I told the front desk I did NOT want a room with a connecting door to another room because of the noise issues & I had included this as a special request when I booked my...
