Overview

Property sits near Port Everglades cruise terminal
Extra charges apply for in-room Wi-Fi access and on-site parking

Like its name suggests, this hotel caters to the cruise crowd with its prime location near the Fort Lauderdale cruise terminal. According to those who have stayed here, the location can't be beat. However, high room rates combined with pricey extras (like $25 per day self-parking and daily Wi-Fi fees that range between $9.95 and $13.95) earn this Renaissance property fairly tepid reviews from recent visitors. Each accommodation comes equipped with signature Revive bedding, flat-screen TVs and deluxe bath products. Additionally, visitors will find an outdoor pool, a fitness center and Bistro 17 and R Lounge, which serve American fare. Cruisers in particular really appreciate the cruise port shuttle available to guests. Plus, Marriott Bonvoy members can use or earn reward points here.
