Nonchalant front office staff

Pros: The coffee at the restaurant
Cons: Service levels need to be improved, i.e. front office and room service.
Our trip was prepaid through your website. Upon checkin we were advised that a credit card would need to be held for incidentals - $150. However, a hold was placed on my credit card for $500. Upon inquiring with the front desk, they confirmed that an error was made at checkin and the hold would be released after 24-48 hours. This did not happen, even after following up with the front desk staff and manager. The hold was finally released after checkout. I was very disappointed that this had happened, and the staff did not appear to be concerned by the inconvenience that this caused during my stay.

Beautiful hotel close to everything.

I stayed at this hotel July 25-26 . Although it was only one night I loved my stay. I chose this hotel for my 21st birthday. The beds where so comfy and clean. The staff was so friendly and helped me with everything I requested. Even the guests where nice. Everyone greeted me and I felt at home!! I would definetly come again next time I visit fortlaudedale area!!

Nothing out of the ordinary

Perfectly fine hotel if you are looking for a clean/safe place to stay. Lobby and entrance are rather impressive, rooms are clean but with wear, definitely could use little more detailed cleaning, our bed was also worn out beyond my liking. My criteria for hotel booking typically require complementary breakfast and free wi-fi in the room, this location doesn't offer either, actually cup of coffee is I think $4. Jacuzzi didn't work 2nd day we have stayed there, also there was no toner in printers publicly provided. I really wanted to like this hotel but I just haven't found it perform better than competition.

Older hotel that had been remodeled

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
The hotel had been upgraded nicely during the remodel. You could tell it was an older hoter by the layout. The bed was great. It is a perfect location for access to 595, 75 and the airport. Great sports bars in the area.

Renaissance at Christmas 2010

Renaissance was very nice facility, just north of Ft. Lauderdale airport and convenient for our 6 day visit to the Hollywood area. Quiet and convenient to highway. Friendly front desk; clean, spacious and comfortable room. Safe and refrigerator in room. Relaxing pool area with a whirlpool. Jogging path around the pond. I would definitely go back.

Fair stay at best, but skip the restaraunt.

Only 1 employee behind the counter (XYZ) even acted like he cared about the guests. Wake up calls were never called on time, often 30 minutes late, the A/C system would not cool the room, and the bathroom was filthy. No one came to check the A/C unit, and no one came to re clean the bathroom. There was hair in the sink, tub, and on the floor around the toilet. The hotel could not even manage to put my Marriott rewards number into the system correctly. The restaurant food was fair at best, and extremely over priced for what was offered. The 1st day I ordered a hamburger, that they cooked on the grill next to some kind of shell fish, to which I am allergic. When I brought this to their attention, they did replace it, but the back handed comments were unnecessary on their part. The service was slow, and uncaring. Quite frankly I've had better service at most diners, and every other Renaissance and Marriott I have stayed in. This is the 1st bad review I have ever given and I am deeply disappointed with this particular establishment. I generally stay in a Marriott Hotel 3 to 6 weeks a year, and always love the stay. However, I will not stay at this one again.

Missing one thing

The hotel was rated as a 4 star and I totally agree. Located right off the freeway and only minutes from the airport. Top notch is an understatement. The one thing missing was no wireless internet access in the rooms. It was only available in the lobby area. That was a bit inconvienent at 10pm. Overall I would give them an A.
