“Great place”
Reviewed 9 December 2008

Booked this place thru Priceline for a 3 night pre-cruise stay.

Everything was beautiful, just like most of the others have said. The place is clean, rooms renovated and very comfortable, and the staff could't be nicer. They booked a last minute Everglades tour for me, and I was picked up right at the hotel 30 minutes later.

My best meal was at Giorgio's, an Italian place about 2 blocks West on 17th. Eat there and you'll be very pleased.

I ate once at the Italian place called Bravos, almost in the Renaissance parking lot. It was OK, but Giorgio's had much better food.

I'm off and running for the cruise ship.

Stayed at the Renaissance for two-days before our Dec. 1st cruise. The hotel is probably the closest hotel to the port. It is very clean and the staff extremely friendly and accomodating. Ryan at the front desk learned that we were celebrating our 20th anniversary and made sure our stay was extra special. The only down-side is that there are not a lot of near-by restaurant options available. One night we ordered pizza delivered to our room (we ordered from Vitos and it was excellent) and the next night we took a cab to the Hard Rock Casino. All in all, it was a great choice for a one or two night pre-cruise stay.

Stayed November 2008

This hotel rates a 5 all the way from Robert the bell hop-greeting us by Name .and joking about BCs best known export.. to the front desk staff. Check in and out was painless -no hidden charges.
The rooms are fantastic as are the public areas. The hotel has just been totally renovated and looks like new.. We highly recommend it

Stayed for one night post cruise and was very impressed with the hotel. I secured this room though Hotwire as it listed the hotel as 4 star, and I was not disappointed. My room was very comfortabe and very clean and looked/smelled brand new.

The staff was very friendly and although the pool is right on the main road, I managed to relax after a long cruise.

I had a few drinks in the lounge and something to eat and I found the pricing to be very reasonable.

I would not hesitate to stay here again when in Ft Lauderdale.

Stayed at this hotel for an extended weekend while in town for a special event. The hotel and room were very nice, the staff was great, unfortunately the restaurant was being renovated and was closed. The pool area is very nice, furniture is interesting and very comfortable. The only negative is that the pool is literally on the road. Relaxing at the pool is not peaceful or quiet. It is a shame because it is a nice pool with great loungers and plenty of fresh towels. Move this hotel to a less congested location and it would be top notch.

  • Liked — Property is up to date, clean, staff is attentive and friendly
  • Disliked — pool too close to road

Reviewed 20 September 2008

I have just returned from a 4 day stay here to attend a Convention. I had read Trip Advisor reviews prior to my visit and have to say I was a little concerned as the reviews were not very appealing. What a pleasant surprise ! Trip Advisor and Renaissance needs to upgrade the outdated web photos. The hotel is undergoing renovations and the upgrades are wonderful. Most of the rooms have been totally and tastefully done over. Final touches were just made to the lobby and restaurants . The menus are not bad and the prices are reasonable (compared to some of the other local hotel restaurants) The staff was always cheerful and accomodating.The location was convenient for me as the Convention Center was just across the street, as was the cruise ship port. Walgreens was directly across the street for last minute travel needs and snacks and may other stores were located nearby . I highly recommend a stay at the Renaissance. You won't be disappointed !
