The 236-room Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel is a bustling, upscale property near the Port Everglades and convention center. This hotel has a number of nice amenities, including a heated outdoor pool and hot tub, a modern gym, American dining, and poolside cocktails, a business center, and 13 meeting rooms. Contemporary rooms have flat-screen TVs, safes, and artistic accents; some have port views. Suites are available that offer extra space in the form of living rooms. Guests who aren’t Marriott Rewards members, however, pay for Wi-Fi in rooms and past guests have complained that the hotel gets busy. The Marriott club lounge is closed on weekends. Another option is the mid-range Crowne Plaza Hotel Ft. Lauderdale Airport/Cruise, which offers free Wi-Fi.
