I had recently stayed at the Marriott on 555 Canal street - because the review is location, location, location and more popular for some reasons. Well, this JW Marriott, from the map, it seems to be far, but NOT at all, literally across the street from its sister hotel across the street. But let me tell you that the cleanliness and the friendliness of the staff is a mile apart. This JW Marriott is 100% cleaner - hall way, room, entrance - 100% cleaner and 1000% improvement. Since I pay govt rate, it's the same price and if I knew this - I would have stayed here for my entire 10 days! Though, I must say that they should really consider giving free in-room WIFI, breakfast…instead of a newspaper! See my review for the Marriott on 555 Canal and you know what I mean.
