Just checked out today. Stayed after a cruise. The location is great. close to airport and cruise port. Lots of option for dining near by. In the actual hotel, it's the usual stuff at the hotel. Over priced. Room was clean and in good shape. The worst part of leaving. SInce it was Monday, there's a lot a standing around...

I am a Travel Agent and recently attended Cruise World in Fort Lauderdale. This hotel was within walking distance to the Convention Center. The rooms are nice and clean. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. I enjoyed room service and the food at the bar. I definitely would stay again and send clients to this hotel.

Rooms are comfortable and predictable. That can be good when on the road. Breakfast buffet was good but some basics lacking. Coffee was served in a mini-pitcher and was just above room temperature. When I asked for a replacement that was hotter, coffee was still not hot. I gave up.

My experience: The staff were pretty darn welcoming, from the valet to the front desk, but especially the hostess on the concierge level. Big time shout out to her for above and beyond customer service. A typically good Renaissance hotel, very solid B++ and for my booking, I found the rates to be a fair value. Fair warning: Do not...

Stayed here for three nights prior to our cruise and enjoyed the stay. The hotel has been remodelled and the work carried out has been worth it. Still finishing off work in the lobby but no issues there. Plenty of restaurants to choose from in a nice area of Fort Lauderdale. I must say the in room coffee is the...

I absolutely love coming to this hotel. I travel here frequently for work and have been pleased every single time. The customer service is superb, special kudos to the female bar tender during my most recent visit. She takes her time to make sure everyone is please. She gave good recommendations, made my regular water into this pretty infused beverage,...
