I'm looking for a good post-cruise "decompression" hotel for a night in Fort Lauderdale before flying home. I'm probably going to go through Priceline, so instead of asking what's good, I'm really asking if any of the below properties are a definite "no" in terms of being of comparable quality and desirability to the others:
We are also going to be staying post cruise at the Renessiance (at a much higher price though, $219) and I was wondering how the pool area is as that is where we plan to relax on the last day of our vacation. Is it really nice? Can you order lunch and drinks poolside?
The pool is average sized. After 7 days by the pools on the Grand, another pool really didn't do much for me. I didn't see anyone with drinks or food poolside. The bar/lounge area is just inside from the pool area though.
We saw special price of $129 at the Renaissance in the Princess catalogue and jumped on it for a one day post-cruise stay. Leaving a day later saved us considerably on our airfare. (although not quite enough to pay for the room). Incidentally,
they have a boffo restaurant called Bistro 17 there too.
