At first I was ok with this hotel. But at check out I will demand to speak to the manager. Room smells like old cigarette scent. Like someone had smoked in here. As I am in the bathroom I notice drops of dried out blood on the door. That makes me question 2 things, cleanliness and hygiene. I called the...

Staff is friendly and has integrity. At first I got disappointed while check in as their were 5 people ahead of me and only 1 person handling the front desk. I asked Debra if she is the only one at the desk and she said that she had already called the manager. I spent 30 min waiting till it was...

What a lovely time I had at The Reniassance -I had tried Expedia unpublished hotel rate and was very worried what type of room I would end up with. I even called Expedia and the hotel. No one would tell me what type of room: small room, high floor, low floor- I needed to know. I didn't want to spend...

We stayed here pre-cruise for one night on December 21, 2014, and were very impressed! Perfect location, upgraded to lovely room on Club level with lots of free food :) Ate dinner across the street at Bimini Boatyard that was recommended by the hotel. The decorating is lovely and updated. The hotel staff and service were wonderful. There was an...

My husband and I stayed at the Renaissance the night before our cruise and our experience was excellent! Nice mints at the front desk, good service in the bar and restaurant and clean attractive room. We arrived a minute late for the concierge lounge breakfast and the attendant kindly comped our breakfast in the main dining room. Fresh squeezed orange...

After reading many negative comments about hotels near the Fort Lauderdale cruiseport, I went on a mission to find a good post cruise hotel. The Renaissance was a very nice surprise. Close to the port and the airport ( much to the disdain of the taxi drivers), the hotel was on lovely grounds with a nice swimming pool, attractive &...

This review is a little bit late but have to comment on it. We stayed here pre-cruise in Feb 2014 and loved it. Great location and we had a beautiful view from our room of the water. We enjoyed our breakfast the next morning and had a bus booked for the next morning to pick us up with other cruisers....

I stayed at this hotel before and after my cruise leaving out of Port Everglades. I would definitely stay here when cruising this port; exclusively moving forward. As a Marriott employee, I am partial to Marriott properties; but that aside, this hotel is in great shape. Looks like it has recently been renovated too! The rooms were very nice, the...

We stayed at this hotel before a cruise on 12/30. We checked in around 7pm, unpacked a few things and left for dinner. When we arrived back to our room at 10pm, the bathroom had flooded and water was pouring down from the light in the ceiling. Consequently all of items left in the bathroom were destroyed, including expensive make...

Did not make it to the Renaissance due to Delta flight problems. Will never prepay again. Delta did put us up in a "Quality Hotel" the night we missed our stay in the Renaissance. Never will book a hotel without ability to cancel before 4pm on day of travel.
