"C minus rating"
They could have put a refrigerator in the rooms for the price we are paying. Not having free wifi in the room sucks as well.$25 for overnight parking... Guess we gotta pay everyone. Aside from that, it was an okay hotel stay even though it was only for one night.

"Little disappointing for a Renaissance"
We asked for a quiet room away from ice machine, elevators etc. Our first room was diagonally across from the ice machine. We call downstairs and they were very apologetic and quickly brought us a new key for a much quieter room. The hotel was clean, bathroom was a little on the small side, very soft sheets but the bed was pretty lumpy. I did not get a good night sleep because of it. I think it was the mattress cover and not the mattress, but I didn't pull the sheets off the look. A little disappointing for a Renaissance Hotel. Parking is an extra $25/day for self parking, more for valet.

"great hotel"
I would definitely recommend this hotel to my family and friends.We had the junior suite and it was spotless. The bed was very comfortable.The linens soft.Overall the hotel was very neat. One thing I would say ,for the price of the hotel they should have continental breakfast because the breakfast is very expensive in the hotel.Pool area was neat....

"Spend your money elsewhere"
This is an extremely ordinary hotel that charges inordinate prices. The room was a typical, tired generic hotel room. Check in was fine, and we appreciated the offer that if we needed anything to just call. Unfortunately, the staff failed on follow-through. There were four of us in the room- my wife and I and our two sons- for a pre-cruise stay. We were provided with only two bath towels. When I called housekeeping for two more towels, I was told "right away sir". The towels never appeared, and when I called housekeeping again, the phone was never answered. I then also called the front desk- and again- no answer. One might expect this lack of service at a budget hotel, but at the prices they are charging, service should be excellent. Aside from the location close to the cruise port, there is little to recommend about this hotel.

Commonn areas and hotel room were clean and well kept. Pool is very small, but not crowded at all, which was great. Beds are horrible. Not even a full size bed, and the mattress was really uncomfortable. But to me, worse were the staff... They will treat you accordingly to the rate you've paid on your reservation. I got a deal, which was not that much a deal paying around $$$$ for 6 nights; and when I called front desk requesting a refrigerator ( suggested by the bell man ), I was told they would check and send one to our room. Still waiting... They didn't even called us back. The next day we made a second attempt requesting the refrigerator on our way out to dinner. Same response, with that look in the eyes like "yeah you right, you're not paying full price and still making requests". The staff didn't mention or offered me the refrigerator not even under a fee. To me, it looked like they were judging us... Ahh, location is great, but neighborhood street smells.

"Overpriced rip off!"
What a rip off! This hotel is not worth the $239 per night that I paid! My room was just a typical small hotel room with two queen beds. There was absolutely nothing special about it. It appears that they recently redecorated the hotel rooms. However it takes a lot more than a cheap attempt to make a hotel look modern to impress me. One of the fake wood panels on the desk in my room had fallen off and you could see where someone had tried to glue it down. My room was also very dusty. The lighting in the room is sub-par. The valet parking is $30 per night and they added a $1.80 "valet" charge in addition to the $30. Wifi internet access is $1.95 per night. I have stayed at other Renaissance Hotels and this one did not live up to my expectations. I chose this hotel because of my prior experience with this brand and also because it was convenient to the Broward Convention center where my child's gymnastics meet was held. However, I would never stay there again.

"Nice hotel but costly."
The hotel is very nice. We stayed at club level, which has free concierge access with free snacks, yet the hotel charges 12.95 for Internet and 25 for parking which is for a hotel in this category quite unacceptable. Especially if you consider that's it's their parking garage, and guests aren't allowed in the public parking.

"Where the outside of a Hotel can be Hollywood."
Having stayed at many hotels of past aside from ship terminal ensembles, I was appalled how ignored the Renaissance ignored common guest touch points with Filth. From elevator inside buttons, telephones,... that were filthy from one day to the next to solvent cleaning the filth from 'common' touch points by visitors throughout the interior. Yes, the hotel's management would argue that "we have allot of people" in and out of here, but, high traffic areas of points of contacts are just plain ignored by maintenance to solvent clean daily, and I am not a 'germ fanatic'. If the parent Marriott visited, the manager of this joint would be Fired. Board of health should pay a visit here.

"Started out good but quickly went south"
We came in the night before our cruise departed on a Sunday. We decided to stop for dinner before we checked into the hotel and was able to easily get into our room late. We ordered a lovely room service breakfast and after an hour we started to call every 10 or so minutes until it arrived. I ordered a bottle of champagne and it arrived without an ice bucket and wasn't even iced down. We barely had time to eat before checkout and we called down for a late checkout. We were told if we weren't out by the pre-agreed time we'd be charged a crazy surcharge. Needless to say we packed quickly and hit the road.

Just one night following a cruise. Friendly, helpful front desk personnel. Hotel exterior OK, nothing special. Rooms very nice, large, attractively and comfortably furnished. Excellent location for cruise port and airport but not really interesting neighborhood for walking. Easy to get to many chain restaurants and shopping areas. Convenient to Sun Trolley if heading out farther. Had a good and generous breakfast in the lobby cafe. Interesting menu - some surprises, good ones. Nice service.

"Stayed 1 night and it met the standard"
Room was clean, bed comfortable, and staff was nice. The bar was small but nice however the drinks were very pricey. The parking was $25/day (why so much???!) and if you wanted internet it was $12.95 a night in the room (that's too much) or free in the lobby. The breakfast buffet was standard but was once again high at $18/person. So you have to be careful on the hidden costs if the room rate seems reasonable because they don't include anything else.

Perfect for 2 nights, by location, $10 from terminal, and $ 10 to Airport. Budget car rent is located across on the same strip, Pillows ware fiber fill, low quality, mattress had already hump. Executive buffet, on the 12 floor only for executive floors, not much choice very minimal...glass of Malbec $ 7 beer is cheaper...Air conditioning very Noisy, and you can hear people in the corridor. Anyway nobody stays inn during the day, enjoy pool, or go to the beach, but prepare to spend lot of time searching for parking, self park at hotel $ 25 per night...what else to say...would I return back, probably will try not to...no refrigerator in the room, strange,.....

"A great hotel"
My family stayed here one night before we went on our cruise. The hotel was a real find and we will definitely stay here again when we visit south Florida. The hotel has a very warm and contemporary feel yet very affordable. We tried the breakfast buffet and it was wonderful. It had a nice selection of foods and drinks, very fresh and the service was great too. We also used the shuttle service to drop us off at the cruise port and this worked really well. There is a shopping area within walking distance from the hotel as well as it had its own parking garage. The parking was $25 per day but you get in and out privilege and most all hotels in this area charge so this didn't bother us. I would highly recommend staying here for anyone visiting Ft. Lauderdale/Hollywood Florida, you won't be disappointed!

"You can't go wrong, depending on the $$"
I wish they had a shuttle from the airport; the taxi was about $20. We didn't get there until late, due to an airline problem. We left early the next day to get on a cruise ship, so we didn't really sample much of the hotel's amenities. The airline lost one of our suitcases, and the staff brought it up to our room at 3 am, which we really appreciated.

"Civil Marriage"
I chose the hotel for being a 4 stars. It was for my first night after my civil marriage ceremony. I had ordered champagne and strawberry covered chocolate but nothing was there when I got to the room. The day of my arrival I confirmed everything at 10 in the morning with the hotel to make sure everything would work well as planned. It didn't. When we left for dinner we still didn't have anything in my room. When we came back from dinner the strawberries and champagne were at the room. The champagne ice was melted and at that point the strawberry chocolate was somewhat melted too. It was a fiasco for me. I was very disappointed as anyone can imagine when this happens to you and it's your first night after being married. I paid extra for the club level amenities and they were poor. The first wine glass I grabed for my wife was covered on lipstick. I do necommed to anyone and I would not go back. There are plenty of hotels in the area four stars probably with much better service.

We enjoy this hotel whenever we're leaving from Port Everglades on a cruise. It's in a great spot with restaurants nearby and the hotel's bar/restaurant is always great. Wonderful service from friendly staff in the bar, at the desk and throughout the hotel. Nice pool area for relaxing. There's a handy and inexpensive van service to the ships making it easy to get to your cruise.

Stayed one night upon return from a cruise. Arrived in mid-morning and was given a room immediately. No extra charge for early check-in. Buffet breakfast was OK, although the scrambled eggs were the usual overcooked mess. Restaurant banquets and chairs need refurbishment. Although we did not swim, the pool area is attractive. Summary: very adequate hotel to which we would return if cruising from Ft. Lauderdale again.

I called early the day of our reservation to confirm and tell them that we were going to be late arrivals. When we arrived they told us that the were sold out and sent us to a different hotel. They also stated that they would refund us our money and they would pay for our room. They did not! I had to take the extra time to call Expedia and make sure that this process was taken care of. I would not recommend anyone stay at a hotel that over books at the inconveniences of they customers. They could had least gave us a courtesy call and good direction to the next hotel. We were exhausted and need to rest.
