Reviewed May 15, 2004

Stayed there one night with AAA rate of $89. The staff were helpful and friendly. The rooms were nicely decorated and clean. The bar and restaurant were above average. The breakfast was also above average. I went to the fitness room and I was impressed. The location is far from the beach and downtown fort lauderdale, but is worth the short drive you have to take.

I stayed with my sister and our two kids for the weekend of 2/6-2/7. I bid $50 for a resort in the Plantation area (not realizing that this wasn't a beach area) and won the bid on Priceline. Once I got over my own stupidity at not looking closer at the map, I was pleasantly surprised at this hotel. Very clean, easily accessible from all major highways, and with an accomodating staff, we really enjoyed ourselves and the kids did as well. Pool area was nice, but small. Water was heated and jacuzzi was always full. We drove 15 minutes to Fort Lauderdale beach and found great parking on the municipal beach.
Because the hotel is so new, I was concerned that it may be noisy, but it wasn't--doors were very heavy and kept out all outside noise. There are 9 floors to this hotel, and only two rooms per floor have balconies, (one regular room and one suite), so if you want access to fresh air from your room, then request one of these rooms well in advance. We, too, were provided with a free fridge. We did not take advantage of the fitness center or restaurant, but did order margarita's from the bar to enjoy by the pool and they were awesome--it only took one to undwind! Bid on this hotel if you are in the area an enjoy. The only downside was the bed--wonderful linens, but the absolute most uncomfortable mattress ever--way too firm for my taste.
So, either try a king or bring lots of Tylenol PM.

We spent four days and three nights at the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Plantation Hotel. We were there as part of my nephew's Bar Mitzvah.
Thus, there were about a dozen rooms from my side and a dozen rooms from my brother-in-law's side. No complaints from anyone. In fact, nothing but praise.

The staff was excellent!!! We were always greeted with a smile and every question was gladly answered and every request was cheerfully worked on. There were plenty of great common areas for us to hang out in small and large groups. The lobby was comfortable and beautiful. The restaurant was reasonably priced and yummy. I had fresh fruit, juices, yogurt, breads, and smoked salmon at the buffet for under $10. The bar, adjacent to the restaurant, was also lovely and reasonably priced. The outdoor pool was clean, beautiful, and well heated. The nice outdoor jacquzzi was steps away too. Although there was plenty to do around the hotel, our room was great too. We had an 8th floor room overlooking a man-made lake. Our room was beautifully appointed and clean. The beds were very comfortable and room service brought me a foam pillow on request. Our rate, which was an internet special obtained at http://www.marriottse.com, was ONLY $79 a night, less than the group rate for the family and less than half the going rate. We thought for that rate we'd be in a less-than-desirable room with no view. But we were treated like kings the whole weekend! The hotel provided a refrigerator for free on request and our room had free high-speed Internet access.

My siblings reported that the airport shuttle was very convenient. The hotel was just 10-15 minutes by car from the beach and very near shopping. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it highly!
