Default Ft lauderdale - renaissance or hyatt pier 66

Looking for opinions please. Trying to decide which hotel to stay in for a few days for a pre-cruise. Looking for an upscale hotel with a fun pool bar hopefully, nice pool and close to restaurants and shopping.
Open to other suggestions. Really need some help with this. Thanks so much.

I stayed there last year, and, several other times as well..I really like this hotel. The pool is fabulous, as is the location...easy to walk to the Bimini Boatyard, the Outback,and the Harbor Shoppes. If you rent a car, parking is high. Close to the port is a plus as well.

If you tried booking 4 star sowntown on Priceline, this is one of the hotels offerred..you can goo to biddingfortravel.com, and see what the winning bids have been...

I have also stayed at the Ren, but not the one on A1A, the one off the highway..that also is a great place and is also offered on Priceline with 4****'s.

Sally, when I was there, the rooms did seem to me they had been refreshed...As far as the bar..I don't really know, but if I were a betting woman, I would say yes!
