“Excellent touch to a special night ”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 30, 2014

First time in Ft. Lauderdale for us. As soon as we arrived the staff was very courteous and gave us tips on places to eat and enjoy ourselves for the night for our anniversary. On our return from our night out, we were surprised with wine & strawberries from the staff member with a personal note wishing us well. Our stay was short but we felt very satisfied with how great the hotel staff takes care of their guests. Will definitely consider staying here again. Hotel & rooms are modern, clean and pretty spacious.

Nice rooms, very quiet - lots of parking spaces - great place for a wedding or other large party - nice casual eating place on the main floor - but the grab and go breakfast was amazing - it was reasonably priced and had cereal and fruit and muffins and great coffee --

Room Tip: I was not aware of any views from this hotel so any room would be fine

I stayed there for business in March for 6 days, very convinient location, very nice staff, very clean hotel. Concierege lounge was very nice, but tends to get busy during peak times. Found all of the staff willing to go the extra mile even though not needed, super proffesional and friendly.
Nice hotel to stay and will certainly recomend to anyone needing a good business hotel or even for a pre cruise night.

Room Tip: very close to cruise port and docks

My husband and son stayed there last year and brag about how clean and great job I did with choosing the right hotel. They have enjoyed it so much that they want us to stay in the same hotel for our upcoming visit in August except this time i will be traveling with them and my daughter! Thanks for excellent service!

We booked with Hotels.com with a special non refundable offer, they din't gave us the 2 beds room and with no other choice. The room tub was cloged. And have a noicy ice maker machine. Thank good was for one night only. So if you want this hotel you better pay regular or have to pay full price, for a better room.

This hotel was chosen by my friends and I for the end cap of our vacation. We decided to stay since it was a little closer to the airport and we did get a really great rate. Once we checked in, we realized that this Renaissance is not up to par compared to other Renaissance hotels. There was a hole in the wall by the window, the sheets and towels smelled like vinegar, there was what looked like blood splattered in the light fixture in the bathroom. There were also no towels by the pool and an associate walked by so we asked if they could bring more towels and they were never brought over so my friends and I had to walk back to our room, dripping from the pool. We also asked a front desk agent if there were any local quick food places, or walking areas, and her reply was no. Everything apparently was over 2 miles away. As we started to walk around, there was a little plaza and a plethora of food options literally across the parking lot from the hotel. The lack of knowledge of what surrounded the hotel was shocking. Our bathroom door as well had a scratch along the door, and a constant screeching noise when opening and closing the door. I would not come back to this hotel. They definitely need someone to double check all the rooms and check the level of cleanliness and make sure their employees are well prepared for any questions a guest may have.

Greetings,

Thank you for staying with us during your recent trip to Fort Lauderdale. I do apologize for all of the issues your encountered while a guest with us and can ensure you that all of this has been addressed with my staff.

The hotel has begun a full property renovation (the guest rooms are under renovation as of last week). We look forward to our new product and would appreciate you giving us a second chance should your travels bring you back to our area.

All the best,

Lori

My family and I stayed here for one night before our Allure of the seas cruise. The location was great. Our room on the 9th floor had a view of the port and we could see the ships docked. The room was clean and spacious. And don't miss Bravo for dinner. Hope to visit for my next cruise.
