So much fun but so overrated. They take great care of you but only when you ask for it. Go across the street and enjoy the food at 17 or not. Clean Hotel lots of fun. I am sorry I am not so helpful with this review

I was satisfied with the hotel except for trying to acquire food in the restaurant. The main restaurant closed early and the bar area had very bad service for acquiring food not the drinks. I felt they had no time to give many of us service for food. I complained but nothing changed while I was there during that six...

Wonderful staff, especially David Cook, he was very helpful when we checked in after our cruise. Good location, it was walking distance to several restaurants and to water taxi and trolleys. However, no free WiFi and breakfast was over priced, so we walked a couple blocks or got on a trolley to go eat, breakfast is not free. The pool...

We were going to make a transatlantic cruise and booked the Renaissance since the location is excellent. The room is nice and clean. Unfortunately the restaurant is too small during the weekend when there are a lot of people leaving for a cruise. We could book a shuttle service to our ship. Excellent. We enjoyed our stay and will book...

It was recently renovated and you can tell since the moment you enter the Lobby. This is a nice location for cruisers or if you would like to stay close to the airport but away from the airport' main road and traffic. Less than 2 miles from Fort Lauderdale Beach. It's located inside a plaza with many restaurants and shops...

The recently renovated Renaissance is in a good location, nicely appointed ... but, what? Bad TV? This must be a 60" LG TV. Beautiful. But only if HD service is available! See attached picture. This is my ONLY complaint. And yes, it brings it down a star. I'm stuck here for work, and my needs are simple: clean, comfortable, fast...

We stayed here on a night before a cruise. The room was very nice, clean, new and neat. We had stayed here 7 years ago and didn't have fond memories. So we tried it again and it was really great. Staff was friendly and helpful. I would sty here again.
