Wonderful

The staff was very nice and accommodating exspecially when we flew in and were told the website had booked our day incorrectly, so our room was booked for the day we were checking out to cruise. The front staff were great and got us into a room and fixed the issue and were very opplogetic of their slow website since we were a late check in. The hotel was gorgeous and very clean and convient to the cruise port. Some people I noticed even walked to the port. I would go back and stay there as a tourist to the area if I wasn't cruising.

Not worth the cost.

Pros: A pretty exterior and it is close to the airport.
Cons: Room size, cost lowering and free parking for hotel guests.
Rooms are small and you can hear outside noise as if it's in the room. Had to pay an unexpected cost of $30.00 to park my rental car overnight. When the car was brought to me in the morning it was covered in bird droppings.

Mid Range Hotel

Pros: It was clean and convenient. The staff provided exceptional service.
Cons: Better dining services in the evening.
Location: I probably would not stay there for an extended period since it is not a central location but excellent if you are taking a cruise.
We only spent on night as it was a stop over prior to embarking on a cruise and the description of this particular hotel's location and reviews by others who had stayed there for the same reason influenced my decision. Overall the hotel was fine. We were moved to another room immediately upon informing the staff that housekeeping and left dirty linens on the bathroom floor apparently while cleaning. We did not ask for the room change but they insisted. Other than that, we had no problems. The room was spacious and clean. We could not obtain dinner on the premises but there was an upscale restaurant within walking distance. We were able to have breakfast onsite and we were able to arrange a shuttle ride to the cruise port.

Friendly; Convenient; Excellent value

The Renaissance is a nicely remodeled property with very helpful and friendly staff. I had direct contact with bellpersons, waiters, bartenders, front desk staff and cleaners and was impressed with how consistent their helpfulness and genuine friendliness was. This is a compact property without a lot of amenities, but is in a great location with good walkable restaurants and stores. Close to the water for enjoyment, as well as for fast and easy access for cruisers at Port Everglades. Nice sized clean rooms with excellent new beds and great pillow options. Fabulous water pressure in the shower.
