This is a pretty good Marriot property. Found the service to be quite good, cooked to order breakfast (or buffet) was quite nice. If you're heading out on Princess it's a very short walk to the boat. If you're light on bags you could easily do it. Seriously it's like 2 blocks. Other ships are further and you'll want or...

Pros: Great service - anytime I had an interaction with the staff, it was exceptional. Location - plenty of places to walk to for meals or if you needed to shop for things you left back home. Sizable room with a good view out of two windows (corner room). Fitness room had plenty of cardio equipment Cons: $25 a day...

Thank you for staying with us during your recent trip to Fort Lauderdale. I appreciate your feedback on several of the amenities provided by the hotel. With regards to parking, the rates that the hotel charges are comparable to all of the hotels in the area. Our proximity to the airport and beach make this a desired location and our...

No, would never stay here again. We checked in on 8 Nov and were celebrating one year together...after a nice evening out, we returned to our very nice room only to find that the key didn't work. A bellman, passing by, tried his key and it didn't work either. Maint. was called and their key didn't work so he removed...

Please accept my apologies for the issues you had with the lock in your room. At times, repairs are needed on these locks and guests are moved to other rooms. Unfortunately, the hotel did not have any additional room to move you to as we were at capacity. Regardless, the situation should have been managed differently and I apologize for...

We had a layover prior to a cruise on a rainy monday morning. Lobby very nice, staff great and accommodating. Ordered 2 double bloody marys. $31. Nough said. Great access to the Port, but not much else.

Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. I am happy you found our staff to be accommodating – customer service is certainly a top priority for our team!

We stayed at the Renaissance for a convention and enjoyed every minute of our stay. They were very accommodating to our extra requests which being four women were quite a few. The staff were friendly and the fruit infused waters placed around the hotel were a welcome sight when returning to our room from the convention. The location is placed...

It took about 20 minutes to check in. Room service breakfast came 45 minutes late and the food wasn't good. I sometimes had to wait over 1 minute for the front desk to answer the phone. When we got to the room there was no TV remote, but we found it under the bed when we were packing to check...

Just enjoyed another good stay here at the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel. The location is perfect for a pre-cruise stay. The hotel has recently completed redoing their rooms, which are spacious and very comfortable, with beds that one just melts into... There are two highly recommended restaurants right across the parking lot (Seafood and Italian), and a Walgreens...

My wife and I stayed three nights for the boat show. Good location, across from the convention center. Our room on the 10th floor was newly remodeled and very nicely done.
