"Close to Cruise Ships"
It was an easy cab ride from the airport, and shuttle service for about $15 pp is available to the cruise ships the next day. Easy to book in the lobby in the morning. Quiet rooms. Nice to look out the window in the morning and see the ship waiting for us at the cruise terminal.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Good value for money...with a catch"
Overall, we enjoyed our stay. Overall clean facility, though the pool area needed some attention. Disappointed that WiFi was an upcharge. Diappointed that parking was upcharge. Room was clean and comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
"OLDY BUT GOODY"
THE HOTEL HAS THE FEEL OF OLD FASHION SERVICE WITH MODERN UPDATED ROOMS. IT WAS VERY CLEAN AND WELL KEPT. BEWARE OF THE VALET PARKING @ 30.00, AND THE 12.50 CHARGE FOR WIFI.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Room was clean and comfortable. Pool was alright, chairs are dirty and not cleaned. $25-30 a night for parking on top of room rate.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great place with great people!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Parking is an issue"
I am a returning visitor, the refurbishment of the rooms is good, the parking lot needs work and is pricey considering what you have to pay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Totally worth the $ ($80)! Great restaurant nearby called Belimi's! All other shopping is within walking distance.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Great stayGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Reasonably good hotel ruined by add on charges"
Hotel surrounded by empty parking lots and charges 25.00 a night to self park or 30.00 to valet. Parking scam ruined what could have been a nice stay. This wasn't a beach location with no room for parking, Hotel was surrounded by parking lots.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel Thank you for staying with us during your recent trip to Fort Lauderdale. With regards to the parking charges, the rates our hotel charges are competitive with the market and the other surrounding hotels. In addition, the surrounding parking lots are owned by private businesses and for the use of their customers - unfortunately, our hotel guests are not permitted to park there. Parking fees should be mentioned on all of our partner websites so that guests are informed prior to arrival. I will follow up with this to ensure that is the case. We do appreciate your feedback and thank you again for staying with us.
The hotel was great all together. Clean, roomy, up to date. Zero nightlife within walking diatance and a 20 minute wait for a cab.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The Renaissance!!! Once more I stayed at this hotel and was not disappointed, as a matter of fact, just as impressed as I was the first time I stayed at this 4 star property. Which by the service, amenities, and look of this property can easily be a five star hotel. The mood is set by the front desk personal , with their profesional yet helpful and […] inviting demeanor . Valet is also a pleasure to deal with as they greet you open your door and say welcome, are you checking in etc. the rooms... Wow, comfy, cozy, and everything to make you rate it as great.

"A perfect hotel for pre or post cruise stay."
Convenient location for our pre and post Cruise stay. Great staff, everyone was friendly and helpful. The free "Print Boarding Pass" arrangement saved a lot of trouble for guests. There is only one inconvenience, the hotel restaurant is closed on weekends, the lounge area (bar) offers dinner, but one would have to sit at the sofa to eat around the coffee […] table, a very inappropriately set up. The near by plaza offers fast food type of eateries, limited choices. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to the Beach"
Great Hotel , clean, nice facilities , close to the Beach, there were two things that doen't like me from this Hotel one was that I had to pay $ 25 daily for park my car and the other pay USD 12 for Wifi , which I have never been charged in hotels in the same category or higher.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Parking is $25"
Parking was very expensive, $25 a day. I wasn't apprised about the parking fee until checked in. i would have stayed somewhere else. The parking gate wouldn't give you a ticket or even open after two trips back to the front desk. Hotel staff apologized but it was late and I just wanted to go to bed. I wasn't given a ticket for the included breakfast […] at checkin nor was I told about it, so it took another trip and a wait to the front desk in the morning to get one. Inefficient and annoying.

Response by Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel Thank you for your feedback regarding your recent stay with us. My apologies that you were not notified of the parking charge prior to your check in. I will ensure the website is updated with the actual cost. We are mindful of the parking gate issues and they are currently being addressed. Again, you should have been notified about the breakfast being included when you checked in and I do apologize for that not taking place. I can assure that I will address all of your concerns and I do appreciate you taking the time to write a review - they are all very helpful. If your travels bring you to Fort Lauderdale in the future, I hope you will give us another chance. We would appreciate another chance to win back your loyalty.
"A romantic trip to never forget"
For my fiancées bday I decided I wanted to take her to the jayz Justin timberlake concert which was phenomenal!! While checking out Expedia I ran into the deal of the deal provided by rennisance hotel. The deal was around 45% off this 4 star hotel. Definitely raised my eyebrows, after reviewing the comments on what everyone had to say about the hotel […] I decided to book our stay there in the mist of attending other events, and man was the the best decision I could of made!!!!! Rennisance hotel was PERFECT!!! Beds were super comfy, run had an awesome view and the staff was extremely friendly. Never hurts when you wake up to the smell of fresh breakfast in the lobby too!! It was such a relaxing place to come to after us hanging out in fort lauderdale, or south beach. My woman and I couldn't book another stay soon enough. Fort lauderdale was beautiful and just might have become our getaway spot, but you can guarantee if we go back we will be staying at the the rennisance hotel!! Thank you rennisance for an awesome stay and great memories!! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Beautiful hotel close to cruise terminal"
This is said to be within walking distance of the cruise port but with luggage, it was super easy to use the hotel's shuttle for 6 bucks per person. Room was great and clean and the entire hotel has a nice feel with updates/upgrades. Staff was friendly and helpful and it was easy to get a late checkout. We had a great stay.Genuine Expedia guest review
Breakfast should be included!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to beach and great staff!"
It was a wonderful stay! The staff was friendly, the rooms were nice and clean, and it was close to the beach. I had a great experience and would definitely go back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel with a lovely view of the intracoastal."
The hotel was undergoing a much needed facelift but it was still lovely. The staff was friendly and the rooms clean. The valets were very attentive. I think the parking was a bit steep especially when it looks like my car was not even in a garage. I got a good rate but would not pay the normal price.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Very close to cruise terminal"
We were provided with 2 cribs (free of charge) for my twin babies and everything was perfect. Rooms were very spacious.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Very helpful front desk help! Overall very satisfied.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great customer Service but room smelled lcigarette"
We stayed at room 327 but unfortunately there was a terrible cigarette smell, we called front desk and we were told all rooms were non smoking, they immediately sent someone with air freshener but after a while the smell came back.Genuine Expedia guest review

"Great location to Crusie Port"
Stay was great, was a little disappointed that there was a fee to park your car at the hotel that you paid to stay at though!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Very Nice Stay!"
The Renaissance Hotel was a very nice facility. I would not pay their normal rate, but we lucked into an Expedia deal so was worth the price paid! Room service prices were reasonable, pool and spa area was nice. The free breakfast on the Club level was very good, and the employees were very nice! Paying $25 a day for parking/$30 a day for valet parking […] was outrageous! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"OK , but they nickel and dime you to death."
The hotel itself is nice. However, eveything is extra, from $25/day self parking to $17 breakfast. Really? After you pay a good price for the hotel? Preposterous! We waited over an hour for pool towels and decided to forget it. Restaurant menu too small and wine menu as well. Would not go back. Disappointing and not worth the money. I travel often for […] work/pleasure. Embassy Suites much better for $. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good location before/after cruise"
The location of this hotel is extremely convenient if you are taking a cruise. There are some great restaurants in walking distance. The lobby is modern and welcoming. The rooms are decent not as nice as the lobby. The beds were comfortable. Overall this is a decent clean hotel perfect for a place to stay before/after cruising.Genuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is very nice. Didn't know when I booked (maybe I didn't look closely enough) that you actually have to pay $25 per night to park in the hotel garage. Aside from that, it's a very nice and very clean hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
The only problems were they charge for Internet and parking was $25 and it was self-parking.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Best hotel ever with the best staff"
They were very welcoming, the staff was amazing . They let me know another this trolley system that takes you everywhere for 50 cents. They food there was amazing. The pool is a great place to relax. We have traveled a lot and my kids agree this hotel is the bestGenuine Expedia guest review
"Close to convention center"
Great front desk staff. Enjoyed the breakfast buffet.Room had issues with used false finger nails and eye lashes on floor as well as a can of spray starch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Good for eveybody"
I love this Hotel better that Hilton Marina . This is going to be my hotel of choice. Parking is to high 26.50 daily after 9 night was 238.50 in parking. Room service was very good and on timeGenuine Expedia guest review
"Would recommend to friends or family."
Great hotel to stay in. Very close to Port Everglades and a walking distance to shopping centers. Front desk people very attentive. Bed is very comfortable. i wish they have a microwave oven. There's avfridge but locked. Front desk said hotel is updating them but they did provided me with one.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Close to convention center"
Great hotel! Rooms are very nicely appointed. Only 1 complaint and that was the $30 a day fee for parking! Outrageous!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
You don't get a choice when it comes to the charge of parking. It's either $25 for self park or $30 for valet PLUS tax. Then, on top of the ridiculous parking fee that's charged to your credit card, they charged my card $50 "just in case" we decided to use any of the food/beverages left in the room. That charge would be credited back when it's determined […] we didn't touch any of it. Basically, it was an unnecessary hassle. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great for overnight before flight"
Location was great for overnight before early flight out of FLL. A lot if restaurants nearby. Only complaint with the room was a slight musty smell and the AC seemed to have a mind if its own during the night - would not stay cool enough. Biggest complaint though was the $25 fee to self park overnight in the garage - which you need to go outside to […] access. Not much fun at 5:00 am in the pouring rain!

"Close to Royal Caribbean pier..."
Staff and the service provided was outstanding. Plus: having a shuttle to the pier for a minimal fee was a real Plus...!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Reported the problem (dirty shower curtain and clogged tub ) They took care of that right away.Genuine Expedia guest review
very good everything!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Room quality lacking"
My room was a disaster. Hair from previous guests in the bedsheets, on the ceiling in the shower. The bathroom itself seemed like it was falling apart, with the shower head coming off the wall, the super-slow drain in the tub allowing standing water up to my ankles, and the drywall water damage around the tub surround. Oh, and the adjoining door in […] my room that was not at all soundproof or smokeproof -- I had to put a towel under the door to keep the "pot" smoke out from the rowdy guests next door. But the worst -- and most disgusting part -- was the cockroach i found hanging from the window curtains. Only positive was that they moved me to a club room once I complained about the cockroach to the front desk - their hotel was completely booked for the convention I was attending and I'm sure they didn't want any unhappy guests. Overall, my stay was mediocre at best (even after moving rooms) and I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. This is definitely not a 4-star hotel. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Nice hotel after a 7 day cruise."
The hotel is located near the cruise port, great for post cruise. The hotel staff was extremely nice and helpful. I entered the hotel around 1030 am after a cruise and was able to get a king size room immediately. The lobby was nice and modern, however the elevators and interior hallways were outdated. The mini bars inside of the room were empty with […] no items to purchase. The hotel is located near restaurants with in walkin distance. The hotel staff was great and had a taxi ready at 5 am for an early morning flight. I would recommend staying at the hotel for pre or post cruisers. Would not recommend the hotel if you were staying in the area for more than two days. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"No running water for a few hours"
It was okay, our air conditioner was making a hissing noise, our doorhand was broken to the closet. And there was no water for a few hours which made us late for dinner :(. They did get everything fixed however, was just surprising.Genuine Expedia guest review
