“Simply lovely”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2012

Service is superlative...just ask and you shall receive. The rooms are spacious and exceedingly well appointed. There are numerous outlets on the desk for any use, i.e., laptops, external speakers, or simply to re-charge cell phones. The bathtubs are extra large with good jet action...perfect for two. We felt the breakfast buffet met our needs as everything was fresh, good variety, and well-presented.

The pool was a perfect temp., not too cool or too warm and great for families. We loved the jacuzzi which was in a separate secluded area along with the well-equipped fitness room next door.

In the evening we decided to have drinks and tapas by the jacuzzi and it was simply perfect...quiet, private, and comfortable.

Overall, the Renaissance is an excellent choice for a short, medium, or long stay.

Room Tip: Choose any room above the fifth floor for a nice view.

From the moment we arrived to the moment we checked out the staff was very friendly and helpful. The location is excellent, right near downtown, the beach just across the bridge, the port right there and the airport 5 minutes away. Nice bar/lounge, nice pool, very nice and well decorated rooms. Most importantly very clean and safe. I definitely would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in the area.

I was impressed with this hotel.

Overall, in South Florida the guest service leaves a lot to be desired but this particular Renaissance was fantastic. David and Nenad at the front desk were extremely friendly (which is very rare in South Florida) and very helpful. Total check in time was less than 1 minute, we were welcomed by name, and offered assistance with our bags. We asked about restaurants open (it was 11 PM when we arrived)- and David/ Nenad provided menus and recommendations of several local places (the food turned out to be good as well). When we called the front desk to request silverware / water be delivered to the room, the request was met with a "right away" and the items were delivered right away.

The room was clean, bed comfortable and all amenities were great.

I would strongly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: Choose a higher floor if you can... further from the street level noise. Also recommend facing East...

Stayed here just the one night while traveling on business but a great place. Rooms are big, lots of amenities packed in there, south beach flare to the furniture. Decent pool, friendly staff, less means more type of styling in the lobby. Good coffee, transfers to the airport included. Ocean view if your facing east, quiet area away from the hwy. Good value.

We have an annual meeting at the Renaissance and we have never been disappointed. The meeting rooms are nicely appointed and the sleeping spaces are good too. People from AV respond to requests with amazing alacrity and I was very impressed with the food that we ordered for our meetings this year. The customer service at this property is terrific. I enjoy returning to the Renaissance. It's just across the street from the convention center.

My second stay at this hotel for a convention, so location was excellent. Had a standard king room on the 8th floor. Hotel is very nice and extremely clean. Very plush and comfortable bed, but could hear doors slamming, talking and water running from other guest rooms all night long. Be aware there are charges for parking and Internet. Missed having a fridge in my room and the restaurant wasn't in my travel budget, so I drove to fast food drive-thrus for most meals. Highlight of this room was the great iron. Strange, yes, but when you're on a week-long trip it's nice to have a good iron to neaten your clothes once they're out of the suitcase. Desk staff was very helpful and friendly.
