Complete $3.8 Million Makeover Unveiled at the 259-key Renaissance
Ft. Lauderdale/Plantation in Florida, a White Lodging Property


MERRILLVILLE, Ind., Nov. 30, 2011-- White Lodging recently unveiled the fully renovated Renaissance Ft. Lauderdale/Plantation. After undergoing the $3.8 million renovation, the south Florida hotel is now an even bigger player in the southern Florida market.

"Our hotel is so chic and sleek," said General Manager Nabil Salloum. "It's like we've merged the glamour of Manhattan and the style of South Beach, and brought it right here to Plantation."

The biggest transformation at the lake-front hotel is the new ballroom and pre-function space. The beautiful 5,400 square foot Cornerstone Ballroom, which overlooks the lake, is the focal point of the property's 10,000 square feet of overall meeting space. The ballroom can be divided into five areas, capable of accommodating 500 guests for a reception or 380 for a banquet.  The Lakeview Terrace pre-function space offer breathtaking vistas of palms, water and the surrounding manicured grounds.

"We are a highly sought after venue for all types of meeting and events," Salloum said. "We offer the services of a personal event manager, certified wedding planners and a great catering staff, plus we have an on-site audiovisual department."  He went on to say that in 2010 the Renaissance Plantation finished first among all Renaissance hotels in event planning.

Also included in the renovation were all 250 guest rooms and nine luxury suites.  All rooms have luxurious new bedding packages, 32-inch flat screen high-definition televisions, are wired with high-speed Internet.  Guest also enjoy the beautifully landscaped outdoor pool and spa, the on-site fitness center and dining in the ever-popular Bin 595, an eclectic restaurant featuring American foods influenced by Latin, Caribbean and Asian cuisine.

Located just minutes from downtown Ft. Lauderdale and its miles of white-sand beaches, the Renaissance Plantation is also close to Sawgrass Mills outlet mall, Sun Life Stadium and convenient to the Ft. Lauderdale International Airport.
