We stayed at the JW for 9 days over Thanksgiving and were very pleased with our choice. If you want the beach it might not be the best hotel for you, but for a stay in the downtown area or if you are planning to rent a car and drive around South Florida it is great. I played the 'LNF' game and got an awesome rate of $88 per night, which didn't stop the hotel form upgrading us to a concierge level corner room! Check-in was a bit slow, but we arrived very late in the night. The room was furnished in modern decors and the bed was perfect. Everything was clean, modern (TV was kind of old) and working. Another highlight is the concierge lounge on the top floor which featured a good selection of hot and cold snacks in the evening as well a nice breakfast selection. The hotel lounge was even open on Thanksgiving evening and for the weekend they gave us free breakfast vouchers for the hotel restaurant. Overall we loved the hotel and the staff and we will definitely return to this hotel in the future.
