Had a hard time deciding between the Renaissance and the Hyatt for our one night pre-cruise in Fort Lauderdale. Both hotels were offering fantastic rates, but I'm a loyal Marriott guy and decided to go with the Renaissance. I'm glad that I did. We ended up in a newly remodeled king room on the 11th floor. It had modern decor,... More

I stay at this hotel at least twice per month for two to four days each visit. It is a fantastic hotel, great service and more than hospitable staff. They are always ready and offering to assist with any need. The breakfast in the restaurant is fantastic. The staff remembers me and calls me by name, making me feel welcome... More

I hosted my cruise wedding block here and everything was fantastic. I know that they were going through some renovations and I was able to request that my guests be put into those rooms. The hotel was great at accommodating that request. The rooms were beautiful. The service was excellent. My guests kept on commenting on how they thought that... More

I just returned from a four day training session for the Census Bureau. The room was great, the service was good... My stay was completely paid for by the Census Bureau. When I checked in I was asked for my credit card - they needed a copy for incidentals. (I wouldn't have any). When I checked out they tried to... More

OK, so the title may not exactly coincide with my rating, or the fact that I will and plan to stay here again. I need to explain. I have stayed here several times. I will stay here again, and am scheduled to do so. I like this property. This year, they have been undergoing renovations and I was placed in... More

My visit to the Renaissance was in conjunction with a cruise in August of 2014. The check in process was smooth. The clerk was personable and helpful. Because of delays at the Atlanta airport we arrived late. The restaurant was closed earlier than advertised on their signage so we had to find a meal and drinks elsewhere. The nearby Bimini... More

I wish I had the opportunity to have stayed for more than one night. The room was without fault. The view was peaceful. There were plenty of Wanna-Be's and Carpetbagger guests, but once I was in my room, peace and tranquility comforted my soul and brought with them a wonderful stay at a place that was more than I expected....

We stayed at the Renaissance before a convention cruise. We arrived at the hotel after a challenging day flying after 5 p.m. and was immediately greeted by the valet. He took our bags and walked us to the counter, where we were told our room wasn't ready. There were many of our convention friends around so after talking for about... More

This was place was booked for one night earlier this month for a next day cruise from the cruise terminal across the street. I picked it as other family members in my group were staying there and recommended it. There's nothing really horrible about this hotel for a 1 night stay but with a brand name of Renaissance, I expected... More
