“What a lovely stay”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

Off the highway an more aligned with a business park than a beach, this is a wonderful hotel. The staff is over the top helpful and friendly. Always smiling and saying hello; asking if there is anything you need. The lobby is beautiful with fun art deco furniture. The rooms vary. I have stayed in larger and smaller rooms. All comfortable. My wall mate had a bit of time where he was very loud but nothing that was disruptive to my sleep or working hours. Definately the best in the area.

Room Tip: The location was good for the location of the business I was visiting.

I am long overdue in posting this review, but please do not think that in anyway minimizes how much I appreciate the tremendous hospitality and customer service I received from the Plantation team during my 6 months of weekly stays at this hotel.

I was relocating to Florida to start a new division of a company. Finding a place to live was secondary to trying to get the business off the ground, so the Renaissance became my home away from home from October until March. I have stayed at many Marriotts, but the Renaissance Plantation is defintely something special. Until this stint, I had only stayed at one in Paris, usually favoring a traditional Marriott for my business travel. All that changed after experiencing the wonderful team here.

Robert and Kyle always remembered me when I walked in the door, "Hello, Mrs. J..." before I had even checked in. They often called up after I got into my room to make sure everything was ok. And, when I inquired where the the fruity water container was one night (as I so looked forward to it as a reward for checking in) only to find it had been broken, they sent up a special fruity water pitcher just for me! They always made me feel like a special VIP guest, eventhough I was really just a business traveller.

And Helen in the concierge lounge, breakfast service is also a gem. She worked so hard to make sure the food items were replenished quickly and each guest had what they wanted/needed to get the day going. She was so sweet and also remembered my name from week to week.

Overall, the hotel is clean and safe. It is located close to many food options and a Whole Foods. One of the things I liked best was that there are refrigerators in the rooms so you could pick up a few things and have them when you wanted a snack or a drink.

I now stay at Renaissance hotels when I travel for work or pleasure and hope each time that my experience will match that of this hotel.

Thank you Robert, Kyle, Helen and the rest of the team there!

Room Tip: Some rooms face a lake and have a balcony - ask for one of those if you can score it.

This beautiful, quiet, clean facilities is always a great place to spend a day or a week. The staff is great and the food and service is always very good. Our room as always was fantastic, spacious, clean and a nice view of the pool makes it very appropiated to seat in the balcony and enjoy the weather. Excellent location, close to restaurants and shopping malls.
Overall experience as always was GREAT!!

Room Tip: Pool view is a plus.

This beautiful facility is located just off the east west beltway thru Fort Lauderdale. Just recently renovated in a very hip & contemporary style, the rooms & public spaces are exceptionally well appointed. If you're planning activities outside of the beach in south Florida the Renaissance is a perfect spot to call home. The golf courses in the area are exceptional, great restaurants are plentiful, and the shopping is legendary! If you decide on a beach visit, you can find sand within 15-20 minutes. Make sure you stop by their restaurant Bin 595 for a meal or just have appetizers in the bar with drinks. Also must mention the exceptional staff who took fantastic care of us!!

This hotel is located in an area next to the interstate 595 that is surrounded by office buildings and is not particularly close to the beach. I personally love the Renaissance brand of Marriott and was not disappointed at this hotel. The staff goes above and beyond to meet and exceed guest expectations and requests. Beautifully furnished public seating areas surround the modern front desk area. All hallways and public areas feature upscale decor from the lighting, wallcoverings, and floorcoverings to the artwork. The outdoor heated pool and hot tub area is small but nice and could be much nicer if they added more tropical landscape and trees to lessen the commercial atmosphere surrounding the hotel. The room was very clean with bright, simplistic decor and a balcony with a table and chairs overlooking a large pond with a fountain in the center of several office buildings. It was very nice to have a sliding door and screen to be able to have fresh air in the room. The bed was so incredibly comfortable and had crisp white high quality bed linens. In room coffee and tea were provided along with a small refridgerator. The breakfast buffet was one of the best I have had and the food quality was excellent at a reasonable price. I highly recommend this hotel for a business stay in the Fort Lauderdale area.

We have been staying at this property for four years and have always had a great stay. The desk service is excellent and the room service is fast and efficient. One thing I really like is the quiet of the upper floors, and the lake view rooms. Additionally, if you stay frequently, they have a great roof top lounge area that is open for breakfats and for drinks and snacks in the afternoon and evening.

Room Tip: The upper floors are much quieter. They seem to put families with kids on the lower floors.

Stayed here for business. While there is some shopping and the beach isn't TOO far away, I'd really recommend this as a good place for business travelers over families. First of all, the Renaissance brand is much more of the boutique variety for Marriott and the decor really screams it. You don't want your kids running around and touching anything. Secondly, much of the stuff near the hotel are office buildings. You need a car to get around to much nicer places.

I can't say enough about the staff. They were wonderful! Everything I needed from extra towels to a firm foam pillow was provided to me upon check-in. The staff went out of their way to make me feel welcome.

While I only ate breakfast at the hotel restaurant (it was your standard full buffet), it looked like it had a lot of local flavour mixed with standard hotel dining. A nice touch the hotel provided was a mini-market so you could purchase snack items/beverages without having to go to the bar. One thing of note: there is no full service Starbuck's at this hotel. They have a machine and it pretty much brews the coffee for the hotel staff. If you're looking for a barista, look for a different hotel.
