We had a great event this weekend at the Fort Lauderdale Renaissance Cruise Port. The event staff was efficient and professional and the Bar service for food and drinks could not have been better thanks to Carmese! I can't leave out the Valet guys with their professional and efficient manner, especially Pierre! Could not have asked for better service all...

Back in 2014 we had a bad experience, but this time we had a good one. Second you can get an Uber down to the Port of Miami. Third the bellman are more like Ritz Carton bellman than Renaissance bell man. Last you can walk to a lot nice nearby places.

Room service was awful, they messed up both dinner and breakfast. Dirty towels, air conditioner made a whistle, I had to have maintenance come. Shower head was worst I've ever had. Non adjustable, it actually hurt my skin. The soap they gave didn't come off. Bed was okay, room is all chipped and banged up.

The hotel lobby and the room was beautiful. The room was clean and spacious. The location is perfect. Breakfast is available, but we had to leave early in the morning to catch our flight and couldn't enjoy breakfast at the hotel. Complaints: while the price per night is not low at all, you have to pay for parking and you...

This turned out to be a great choice pre cruise. It is close to both the airport and the cruise port. We had an upgraded room (concierge level) which was spacious and well appointed. The staff was helpful. The Executive Lounge offerings were quite good. We are going back for another pre cruise stay in two weeks.

Staff were very nice, actually there was short gentleman (forgot his name) at the front desk that was just full of helpful information about the area. Some of the restaurant staff also integrated well with the guests so we felt very comfortable. Overall the staff experience was a step up from other Marriott brands we've visited. Marriott staff are usually...

This is a great place to stay if you're heading off or returning from a cruise. It's very close to the port and not far from the Fort Lauderdale International Airport. It is close to shopping and restaurants. The hotel is comfortable, the staff are friendly and helpful and it has a nice pool area. We would definitely go back.

Well located. Very close to Fort Lauderdale beach and the cruise port. You can get to Fort Lauderdale beach by bus for 2 bucks p.p. in less than 10 minutes. Taxi ride from cruise port cost us less than 10 $ (generous tip included). Lots of stores around too, so really easy to find something to eat. There's also a...
