One of the consistencies of the JW Marriott is its service, it is always truely 5-stars all around. I always feel to be treated like a king here.
Upon check-in, despite the low status in Marriott frequent guest program, I was given a large corner room in lodge #6. The room feels more like a mini-suite than a king room and hence also its downside. There were not enough furniture in the room therefore the room feels a bit too empty.
Aside from the king bed and the two nightstands flanking each side, there is also a reading chair with ottoman. A drawer desk that also double as the TV stand. A separate workdesk is available for those who needs to work. There is also a vanity desk next to the bathroom but its location was badly designed as anyone sitting in front of it will block the way to the bathroom.
The bathroom size was great, roomy and bright. Water pressure was decent and the bath amenities quality was high.
The Champion restaurant lunch menu was good with decent price list. There is a Starbucks in the basement but it does not have the usual quality. I attribute this to the untrained Baristas.
Location wise, unless you are here for spas or for golf, it is rather far from the nightlife haunts of Miami. Getting a cab can be long at dinner time as there mayby lots of guests having the same ideas as you do. There are however a paid shuttle service to South Beach for $10/head.
Like other JW Marriott, the Doral Spas and Goft Resort distict itself from other with the service that it provides.
