A great staff that made my business trip perfect. From someone who has spent some 40 years in the road. This is top notch for the business traveler or if you are going on a cruise out of Ft Lauderdale. Highly recommend.

We stay at the renaissance every time we cruise out of Lauderdale....in the past this hotel has been dark and out of date....but what a nice surprise this time. The lobby was bright and stylish. The attitudes of the people behind the desk was much more pleasant than in the past reflecting the new decor and the bellman and valets...

The staff is to be praised -Jay above all. The management as well, for the fine ground floor renovation. Rooms are fresh but nothing special, with date shower. The pool is actually really nice, with a surprising number of palms surrounding it, despite it's adjacent to a road (the bushed fence should actually be a wall, to make it nicer...

Stayed at this hotel prior to embarking on a cruise. Perfect location as it's close to the Port Everglades cruise terminals. The hotel is physically beautiful. However, service is nonexistent. I am a Marriott Rewards Platinum member and stood in a long line with one front desk attendant simply to get my keys as I did an online check in...

Staff was very nice will start there , But for first time cruising out of Ft Lauderdale , This is where the cruise line will send you . This place is very expensive for what they offer . 400 dollar room that would cost a 100 anywhere else. A breakfast buffet that would be free at any holiday express ,...

My wife and I stayed here the night before our cruise. We couldn't have been happier with the hotel. Our room was very nice and also very clean.

I am so late with this review. My friend and I were cruising out of Miami, Oct 6-10. We ran smack into Hurricane Matthew.
