“A Sea of Calm amongst the glitter...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 2, 2011

Really nice hotel. Do not confuse with the "Techno-Hip" Marriott Marquis - the "plain" JW is a classic hotel in town full of "glitter". This place is an Oasis . Walnut- paneled walls & elevators, Traditional rooms & furniture but elegant & refined. I was upgraded to a 2 rm Suite with 2 of the biggest Flat panel tv's I've ever seen in a hotel room! Hotel staff was exceptionally friendly, the restaurant was pleasant & efficient. The Sunday Brunch was "way above average" but the Room Service menu lacked creativity of any kind. The Room Service Staff was OK but the food quality was bland. Valet Parking was unusually prompt. Nice place - no Flash.

This hotel was nice and clean. It was a great hotel for a quiet get away by myself. The mall is a short walk away.

Although my stay was brief (15 hours!) in this hotel it was very satisfying on all fronts.
The location in downtown Miami is ideal for the business traveller and the hotel facilities complement this.
Your arrival is eased by an eager team of bell men and valets, while reception is welcoming but efficient.
My room was facing Brickell Avenue, with a balcony which made for interesting sights & sounds on Saturday night.
Inside the room was spacious, pristine clean and very comfortable with all the expected business travellers needs met.
Breakfast is a feast with omelettes made to order, an array of pastries and fruit and a broad selection of other delights to kick start your day.
In summary I'd highly recommend this hotel due to its excellent quality and great location.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with balcony overlooking Brickell Avenue

If you're looking for a nice hotel downtown, this is a great place to stay. The JW Marriott is perfect for someone just looking for a nice bed and little more. There is a pool but it's nothing special.

The decor and style of the hotel interior/rooms is a little outdated. There are so many great boutique and modern hotels throughout downtown Miami (even the JW Marriott Marquis) that are the same star rating but much nicer. This hotel does not have floor to ceiling windows like many others downtown and very few rooms have a water view.

I have no real complaints as the staff was friendly and welcoming -- but in this price and star range I just didn't feel that it was as nice as it could have been.

Room Tip: High floors are good -- right now there is construction on Brickell, so a room facing East is best.

Sure, it isn't on the beach, but it's clean, has a beautiful restaurant for breakfast and a great bar for working/eating or hanging out with friends. Beds were fluffy and comfortable. Awesome business center with free printing/internet, which was so nice and I rarely see. The best part about this hotel was the service. The front desk staff was so friendly and went out of their way to make sure we were getting the best rates and threw in free continental breakfast, even. The building has a tropical theme but not cheesy - almost like you're in a resort in Mexico. Would defintely stay here again! TIP- take cab/rental car to South Beach and go to The National Hotel. Pay "Day Rate" - $25 for full access to their gorgeous pool and private beach. They have a bar near pools and also waitstaff on beach. $25 also covers towels, tables and umbrellas. Best deal around!

Room Tip: Had a corner suite suite through their upgrade program ($15/night) - definitely worth it. View of wh...

What a fabulous hotel experience. There is not a better location than Brickell Ave. The service was impeccable and the staff were friendly, warm and extremely professional. The hotel was spotless and the bedding was phenomenal.

It not always true what you get, what you pay for. This place in down-town Miami although with street construction, has some issues accessing the property, is definitely a place to stay. I would highly recommend. Down-side-- yes there is a parking fee. However, downtown parking is not free in any city, so why complain.
