My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel, as I needed to be centrally located for business in the Fort Lauderdale area. The lobby is gorgeous! As is the bar/restaurant. I didn't have the opportunity to dine at the Renaissance, but it was definitely inviting!
The customer service was very good. I forgot the name of the woman at the front desk who arranged for a free cheese/cracker assortment and 1/2 bottle of wine because she gave us the wrong address for one of our social excursions (not a big deal!). I thought that was VERY gracious of her. The wrong address ended up being a blessing as we had the chance to explore an area we would not have seen!
The room was comfortable; nothing terribly special about it. We did have a Lake View which was very nice.
I will say, I would prefer the Renaissance Hotel on 17th street, as it is closer to the beach and the Las Olas restaurants/shops. Although I appreciated this hotel and the service level/room comfort, I would prefer a location in which you can walk to a neighborhood restaurant and/or Starbucks versus having to drive. And YES, there was a Starbucks in the hotel, which is GREAT! I was just citing an example of enjoying the ability to walk out the door and explore an area on foot.
