Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel is minutes from the airport and primarily draws business travelers as well as cruise-ship passengers departing from Port Everglades. The Intracoastal Waterway passes under a bridge right next to the hotel. Fort Lauderdale's famous beaches, beachfront shops, restaurants, and entertainment venues are just over the bridge.
A public "water bus" transports passengers around Fort Lauderdale's inland waterways from mid-morning until after midnight, stopping at 20 locations such as restaurants and shopping centers; one stop is only one quarter-mile from the hotel.
The Renaissance Fort Lauderdale Cruise Port Hotel offers a 24-hour self-serve business center that has wireless Internet access for a surcharge. Thirteen meeting, conference and banquet rooms are also available. Additional amenities include valet parking (surcharge) and concierge services. This is a smoke-free property.
