“Anniversary treat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

We spent four nights at the JW Marriott. In Cannes.
on arrival our bags were taken from the car and straight to our room.
The reception area was a wow, the staff were very polite, and our room was spotless, and was on the 5th floor overlooking the garden nice and quiet with great view. You have a large choice of food for breakfast. The Hotel is in a superb location for everything. But to top it off for my wife and myself on the day of our 30th wedding anniversary the Hotel manager congratulated us and we were presented with a large plate of fruit and a bottle of Champagne. What a Fantastic Hotel and Holiday.

Room Tip: Top floor overlooking the garden is the best, no noise, great view

Extraordinary hotel in the best area of La Croissette Blvd. Impecable service, excellent valet, receptionist and beautiful rooms. The best bed of our long trip, large bathrooms with separate shower and tube. Breakfast can not be better and when sunny in the outside terrace a must. close to everything and across the street from the sandy beach.... The only think you have to be aware is that wifi is free in the lobby for 1or 2 hours max per request at the desk. cost of parking/valet is high. But it would be our home for our next Cannes vacations for sure.

We spend 5 days at the JW Marriot and enjoyed every minute.
Arriving at the hotel you will be welcomed by an extreem friendly staff.
The lobby looks great and smells fresh.
Rooms a nice and comfi.

Breakfast in the morning is a choice out of Continental or American and pentiful

The lounge terrace is a great place after a Sunny day on the beach, to relax and watch people walking by.

Would definately recommend the hotel although I would avoid the hotel restaurant as price/quality is not a match

Room Tip: the garden view rooms have a side view of the Sea

Having read some previously posted negative reviews my wife and I were somewhat apprehensive about this hotel. Not to worry! From the seamless arrival - bags taken from taxi and delivered to room without any exchange with bell staff, to superb recommendations for restaurants, and very accommodating front desk staff, this hotel reflects a sincere concern for guests. Common areas, bar, and guest rooms have all been refurbished within last six months and have an edgy vibe.
The only disappointment we had was that roof terrace and pool were closed. Private parties for next week's film festival have pushed regular guests to background. Most other hotels and high profile locations have same problem.
Hotel is very centrally located and allows easy access to primary shopping districts, nightlife, etc.

Fantastic hotel! Great service, beautiful clean and comfortable room. Very large compared to most European rooms. We walked to everything. Only wish was that the gym had free weights. We will definitely go back.

My husband had business outside of Cannes but we chose to stay there anyway; we were joined by two other sets of people. The Cannes Marriott is centrally located, near all shopping, train etc. not to mention right across the street from the beach. Yes the design inside is kind of quirky retro but it was spotless and fun. We were upgraded to a suite which had the most comfortable bed ever, fantastic space, great lighting, better than average hotel hair dryer - the works! Almost even more importantly, I have never met staff members that were together sincerely interested in making our stay more pleasant. Even when we'd ask for a wake-up call as we'd walk in in the evening, the front desk staff knew our name and room number before hand. The concierge was worth his weight in gold as I traveled either by myself or with a friend during the day. I would most certainly return!

Room Tip: Our suite didn't have an ocean view but we overlooked a garden - this was quite ok by me as I fe...
