Typical Marriott property but a bit upscale due to it being a renaissance. Lobby needs a re-do but the rooms were pretty nice. Restaurant is tiny and dark and the breakfast was above average. Perfect if you are visiting for a few days or taking a cruise. A few decent places to eat within walking distance.

Possibly the worst Marriott experience I have ever had...manager on 12/27/14 should be removed. I travel every week so I do know what good service should be - this wasn't it. Rethinking my Marriott loyalty for 2015!!!!

We stayed here on December 6 and found this to be a wonderful hotel with just 1-2 exceptions. We arrived early and were greeted by Debra at the front desk. She was amazing. Even though we were early she had our rooms ready for checkin. A better guest service rep you could not ask for. The room was wonderful along...

Loved the pillows. ..slept great. But the internet access and the business center computers were awful and the public areas of the hotel were FREEZING. Didn't have coffee makers in every room. But I'm glad they sell those pillows!

Front desk staff was very accommodating. The hotel is worn but comfortable. Pool area needs to be updated. Everything looks old but some areas updated though the décor/ambience doesn't flow. However, most all of the hotels we saw along the beach drive were like this. The plus is that it is close to port (don't try to walk to the...

The staff are friendly and it is in a great location with nearby shopping and dining, plus the ever important cruise terminal. They...

Had a recent two night stay at the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale. It is an OK hotel. On the positive side, the staff was very friendly and well trained. Also, if you don't have a car there are a couple of decent restaurants right across the parking lot (Bimibi Boatyard & Bravo Ristorante) plus a couple of pubs within 1/2 mile....

We were leaving on a cruise from Ft. Lauderdale and booked a night here the night before. The website says it's convenient to the port and they were right. We delayed and got there late, but everyone on staff was very personable and professional including the gentleman at the front desk, bellman, valet, and the bartender. Since we got in...
