This hotel is on the edge of a business park, but we were there at a weekend before picking up a cruise. The lobby has the usual Renaissance makeover of oversize chairs, mirrored surfaces and various objects scattered around, so makes for a smart first impression. The rooms, though perfectly adequate, still have rather old-fashioned furnishings, more like an unreformed Holiday Inn, with just one or two Renaissance touches - odd-shaped purple pillow, smart desk chair. The restaurant evening menu seems a bit unexciting, but the bar menu is more tempting. Good and generous breakfast. Friendly, helpful reception staff; distinct lack of bellhops. Short drive to Port Everglades or to the enormous Sawgrass Mills for outlet shopping.
