JW Marriott Marquis Hotel Dubai
Ranked #18 of 563 Hotels in Dubai
Reviewed May 8, 2014

Being a Marriott Rewards member, I got a 25% discount on the best available rate while booking online. The hotel is huge. We learnt upon arriving that it holds the Guinness Book of world record for being the tallest hotel in the world.
The check in was effortless. Rooms are spacious fitted with all modern amenities one can ask for. Bathrooms are huge as well. The location is close to downtown Dubai, right on Sheikh Zayed Road, very close to both Dubai mall and Mall of the Emirates. Staff was very courteous and always willing to help.
Breakfast was very elaborate. Perhaps, the most elaborate breakfast spread I have ever seen, and tasted good.
The hotel is relatively new and is built in Business Bay, the area around hotel has a feeling of a construction site, but soon it will all be developed and will be a great place to be in.
The Vault Bar at the top of hotel has some awesome views of the city and is a good place to spend an evening in. The VIP club in hotel is well worth a night out.
Had a fantastic 2 day trip to Dubai, thanks to JW Marriott Marquis.

I stayed here with my boyfriend in the Easter Break for 6 nights. It was absolutely the best hotel we've stayed at (and we travel a lot - always staying at luxury hotels)!! Everything was perfect and the communicating and service prior and during the stay was perfect - nothing to complain about at all. We booked a regular room, but got a upgrade to a suite on the 62th floor with an excess to the lounge on the 37th floor. This made our stay were special and outstanding. We also had a massage at the hotel, which was very good and professional. We were very impressed by the service of the staff and the interior of the hotel. It is a very clean hotel with everything you will ever need.

We are very likely to stay at this hotel again if we ever go to Dubai and hope that other JW Marriott hotels are as good as this one. We were both very impressed with everything and we are usually not easy to impress :-)

I paid 100 Dhs for a 1 gin martini. When I asked for the reason, the waiter told me that 30 ml is too little as a standard so they decided to put 60 ml and charge double without asking me
I have expressed my disappointment on the issue but the didn't really care. 100 Dhs for a gin martini is almost equal to a glass of champagne which is at 120
I live next door and I come for a drink from time to time but this was my last visit obviously. It is a shame they become so arrogant

If you are looking for a city hotel and don't mind not being by the beach - then you can't do better than the JW Marriott hotel. The staff are super friendly, the rooms are excellent - lovely bathrooms and very comfortable beds. The executive lounge was great and the staff went out of their way to be helpful. Great restaurants on site. Amazing Thai and Steak restaurants. The swimming pool area is great. I was also really impressed with the gym and spa. The only slight annoyance was the lifts as you had to wait a little too long for them but apart from that I highly recommend.

Room Tip: High floor.

We stay at this hotel often but were extra impressed on our last visit. We ordered room service and the man who brought it to our room, Simon, was so professional, friendly and informative. A very pleasant change from the usual room service we have experienced around the world. You won't be disappointed staying here!

Myself and my partner have recently returned from a fabulous trip to Dubai - Our stay at the JW Marriott exceeded our expectations and I would be more than happy to recommend this hotel to friends and family.
From the moment we checked in we had a pleasant experience, taking note of our special occasion and request of a high floor (which I'm sure everyone asks for!) was met.
We stayed on floor 47 in a lovely sea view room overlooking 'The World'.

Pros -
* Great buffet breakfast every person I am sure was catered for in kitchen 6 dining room. Exceptional choice from cold fruit salad, continental pastries, fully cooked, Chinese, Indian, American I.e. Pancakes / waffles.
* Lovely facilities - pool area had a great view of the burj khalifa. The 'vault' bar on the 68th floor also giving exceptional views across the city. Other nice bars are available in the hotel including a sports bar we drank in on a couple of occasions.
* Extremely helpful staff - Everyone we came in to contact with either said a simple hello or asked how our stay was. The lobby and front of hotel staff particularly friendly opening doors and cars for you as you enter and exit the hotel.

Cons - Honestly the only thing I can mention is that free wifi is only available in some public areas, it's a shame this isn't extended to the guest rooms too. There was a chargeable service available for a wifi service in guest rooms however this appeared very costly.

Overall a wonderful stay and if visiting Dubai again we wouldn't hesitate to return.

I enjoyed everything about this hotel.
There was nothing to not like from the swimming pool to the room, and the views were to die for.

I will be staying in Marriott hotel whenever I need to go to a hotel as long as there is a Marriott Hotel available
