          We recently stayed (June 2011) at the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale, Port Everglades Hotel. I would stay there again, in a minute. Actually, on our return trip to Fort Lauderdale I was disappointed that we booked another location (post cruise). Customer service is obviously part of the culture of this organization, you don't find that to often. You will not be disappointed with your stay here, they put us, the paying public first and formost!. Enjoy your stay, we did... Don Presley - Canada

          Internet was not good. I was ddropped at least a dozen times during the stay.

          They gave me a handicap room because they had nothing else available even though I'd placed my reservation well in advance. However, to make up for it they gave me a breakfast voucher for two.

          Its a fabulous hotel. Everyone friendly and helpful. Pool area is gorgeous. Yellow Trolley bus operating Fri Sat and Sun right passed the hotel to the beach at Fort Lauderdale was really handy. We stayed 2 nights before going on a cruise from Fort Lauderdale. This hotel is so close to the port. We could see the ship from our 8th floor. A shuttle to cruise ship was available from the hotel.

          The access to the Fort Lauderdale boat show was very good. It was a short walk to the water taxi. There are a number of good restaurants in close walking distance

          The room was not well-maintained, examples are: -The mini bar was not functioning and when I called to find out about it, they told me that they just don't use them anymore. -The handle on the closet fell off when you tried to use it. -The showerhead had come loose from the wall. -The tub drain very slowly so you were standing in water when you took a shower. The shower head was an extreme water saving type and the pressure was so low it was Extremely difficult to wash your hair. They charged $13 per day for use of the Internet.

          Great design. Cleanliness. Early check in.Proximity to Port Everglades,restaurants,shopping(sun trolley to mall)

          Omelette guy in onsite restaurant was way too slow (sautéed vegetables before adding to eggs )which resulted in long line ups (many people hurrying to leave for a cruise)

          We stayed at the hotel 1 night before cruise, and for that purpose it was ok. 3 min from the cruise terminal.

          Overall, rather basic hotel, little bit old, average breakfast. I think for the money we payed it could be better. Nice pool, but very noisy because of the road.

        • Older travelers

          We were going on a cruise from port Everglades and the hotel was a 5 minute walk. It was also close to Lãs Olas Boulevard and the beach area. The room was clean and reception staff attentive.

          It was like walking into a fridge it was so cold, At least in our room we could adjust it. We were here for 3 days and on the second after being out most of the day we arrived back to a room that had not been cleaned.

          Location Pool area was relaxing Water with orange slices Friendly Staff

        • Older travelers
          10.0

          We stayed at the Renaissance both pre and after cruise. We were late on arrival yet were met with courteous and friendly staff.The rooms were impeccably clean. The staff on all fronts were pleasant and quick to render any service. I would certainly choose this hotel again.

          This mistake was mine. When I reserved the room six months prior to our arrival, from Booked.net, they clearly stated that the special price did not brook any cancellations. I was billed upon departure and because of the time gap I thought that I had already paid for the room. Upon checking my visa statements I realized that I was in the wrong and in fact no payment had been made. The receipt from Booked.net should have clearly indicated that the room was to be paid directly to the hotel.
