It took about 20 minutes to check in. Room service breakfast came 45 minutes late and the food wasn't good. I sometimes had to wait over 1 minute for the front desk to answer the phone. When we got to the room there was no TV remote, but we found it under the bed when we were packing to check...

Thank you for staying with us while in Fort Lauderdale. I am sorry for the disappointing service you received while our guest. It is certainly our priority to ensure that everyone receives service that is up to our high standards and we certainly did not accomplish that during your time with us. I hope that if you are coming back...

Just enjoyed another good stay here at the Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel. The location is perfect for a pre-cruise stay. The hotel has recently completed redoing their rooms, which are spacious and very comfortable, with beds that one just melts into... There are two highly recommended restaurants right across the parking lot (Seafood and Italian), and a Walgreens...

i was a guest for Friday and Saturday night. What a dissappointment. Very poorly managed hotel. The lounge is closed on weekends but the hotel is 100% full. Not nice. There is no restaurant at night. Food service is in the bar with very limited seating and only 1 server. It took forever to order and haing our plates removed...

Thank you for staying with us last weekend. I do apologize for the lack in service that you experienced in several areas of our hotel. With regards to the Concierge Lounge, although it does close on weekends in most Renaissance Hotels, we do offer a complimentary buffet breakfast on both Saturdays and Sundays. I appreciate your feedback and will follow...

My wife and I stayed three nights for the boat show. Good location, across from the convention center. Our room on the 10th floor was newly remodeled and very nicely done. Beds in particular are extremely comfortable. The toilet needed adjustment as the flapper often doesn't close so it runs. Also, the decorative box that the coffee and tea is...

Stayed here for one night prior to our cruise, but would stay again even if not going to leave from port Everglades which is quite close. Convenient taxi ride from airport, they have an excellent shuttle service for $6 per person to cruise port. Most important, excellent service at this hotel. Everyone was friendly, but the porters/bellhop are the kindest...

My son and I are staying here right now! We are here because he is a new and enrolled student to the Art Institute of Ft Lauderdale! I am so happy I made this choice! Not only because the Art Institute is directly behind the hotel-- but because the staff is excellent! From the moment we came we were greeted...

Great place to stay pre cruise, this was our second year. Location is great, renovations are great, staff is great. Inexpensive and easy transport to cruise terminal $6 per person. Highly recommend this hotel!

We recently stayed at the 17th Street Renaissance. The rooms have been renovated and are done well. Streamlined and modern with a homy feel. The location is great. Next to a myriad of really good restaurants, shopping and the convention center. The people are friendly and courteous and the service was adequate. All of our needs were fulfilled, some took...

We've stayed here before and enjoyed it. And it wasn't that we didn't enjoy this stay. But we did encounter a couple of things that don't have to be as they are. I'll start with the best parts. There are certainly bargain prices available here depending on the time of year and what conventions are taking place. When we checked...
