The Renaissance is in a good location. Several restaurants within walking distance. They charge for both valet and lot parking - so if you have a rental car, be aware. Nice size room and very clean. Staff was friendly, bell-hops went over and beyond to assist guest.

We choose this hotel over a Holiday Inn because of the location to the port and walking distance to a restaurant and I was in the spending mood. The hotel is decorated nicely, had good amenities and the staff was great. They also organize transportation to the ports for a fee. However, At $467.00 for one night it is no... More

My wife and I, and another couple, stayed here before our cruise. This is a very nice property. We had a double double room that was clean and comfortable. This property is also close to shopping and many restaurants. Good for one night.

This modern hotel is located right across from the entrance to the Ft. Lauderdale Cruise Port, and is therefore an excellent place to spend a day or two either before or after your cruise. (or both). It is also right across the road from Walgreens Pharmacy in case you need something. It is within 100 yards (95 meters in Canada)... More

At first I was ok with this hotel. But at check out I will demand to speak to the manager. Room smells like old cigarette scent. Like someone had smoked in here. As I am in the bathroom I notice drops of dried out blood on the door. That makes me question 2 things, cleanliness and hygiene. I called the... More

Staff is friendly and has integrity. At first I got disappointed while check in as their were 5 people ahead of me and only 1 person handling the front desk. I asked Debra if she is the only one at the desk and she said that she had already called the manager. I spent 30 min waiting till it was... More

What a lovely time I had at The Reniassance -I had tried Expedia unpublished hotel rate and was very worried what type of room I would end up with. I even called Expedia and the hotel. No one would tell me what type of room: small room, high floor, low floor- I needed to know. I didn't want to spend... More

We stayed here pre-cruise for one night on December 21, 2014, and were very impressed! Perfect location, upgraded to lovely room on Club level with lots of free food :) Ate dinner across the street at Bimini Boatyard that was recommended by the hotel. The decorating is lovely and updated. The hotel staff and service were wonderful. There was an... More

My husband and I stayed at the Renaissance the night before our cruise and our experience was excellent! Nice mints at the front desk, good service in the bar and restaurant and clean attractive room. We arrived a minute late for the concierge lounge breakfast and the attendant kindly comped our breakfast in the main dining room. Fresh squeezed orange... More
