we drove by the Renaissane and it's very nice from the outside. We decided to sleep a little cheaper since we splurged on the cruise so we stayed at the Ramada Cruiseport. Its about a 10 minute drive to port everglades and they offer a free airport/port everglades shuttle service. The hotel itself was very clean, comfortable and had a beautiful pool area. The poolside bar made the best Mai Tai's and service was very good. The rate in April wast $130 per night and we stayed 2 nights pre cruise and 2 nights post cruise. If you have your heart set on a 5 star luxury 300$ per night hotel this will not be what your looking for but its where we plan to stay when we cruise again.
I stayed at The Renaissance Hotel for my last cruise. It is a very nice hotel. I justed booked another room with them through one of the major bidding sites.
Only thing...if you are renting a car, parking at the hotel is abit expensive. I think it was $14/day.
