“Beautiful Hotel chic The Celtics stayed there”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 7, 2012

I stayed in Room 2101. This hotel is amazing and the view is even better. I booked this for a weekend away alone and I would never stay on South Beach again. I normally stay right on South Beach for entertainment purposes but I decided to do something different this time. The Bayside marketplace is about a 5 minute walk from the hotel and the bus to take you over to South Beach was around the corner. This is was the best time i've had in Miami and the JW Marquis will be my go to hotel everytime I am in Miami.

Room Tip: Any high room that gives you a view of the harbor.. I stayed in room 2101 a corner room with beautif...

Last year I stayed at the EPIC and wanted to try the JW Mariott. The Mariott is new, with great rooms, excellent service and a wonderful view. However it lost a few points due to some logistical downfalls. the valet parking takes some time to retirve your car, 12-20mins, so call down in advance so they can bring your car around else be prepared to wait. Breakfast service a la carte was slow and just ok. the staff however, was all very helpful and attentive.
It was marathon weekend and the hotel was fully booked and the traffic was heavy so this may have accounted for the long waits. for food, elevator and valet. Everything else was great.
Overall, I would have to give the EPIC (across the street) one star more.

Room Tip: ask for a bay view even if it means waiting for a room.

The hotel rooms are so spacious and luxurious. And free wi-fi to boot! The bathroom is breathtaking, with cable TV within the mirror, plenty of shelving, a large tub and adjacent glassed-in shower. Everything is new and well-maintained. The room was very quiet. I didn't have a view of anything since the hotel was full, but I wish I was on the other side which has beautiful views of the bay and waterways. There were plenty of hangars in the closet. There is twice a day cleaning crews that go through, although I only got the PM cleaning/turn-down half the time. My only other complaint is that the lighting overall is very dim in the rooms. The pool was nice and quiet, but doesn't get as much sun as the beach because it is perched in the middle of downtown. The meeting space was very nice, and the banquet food was great. I had a Swedish massage at the spa which was excellent. The staff was very friendly. I went to db bistro on the 1st floor for drinks and dinner. It is pricey but the cocktails and the food were impeccable. There are plenty of other restaurants within walking distance, as well as a drugstore.
I highly recommend it overall. But be prepared to spend a little $.

We were in for a conference, which had multiple venues. We hated the Sheraton on Miami Beach, which was in poor repair and unbelievably noisy throughout the night so I called Googled other hotels and, since I am a Marriott member, chose the Marquis in Miami. We had a car, so being off the beach wad not an issue.

From the receptionist to the bellman, to the restaurant staff, everyone went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. They upgraded us to a gloriously, large, beautifully appointed room, with spectacular view. The furnishings looked as though they had been Installed that day! Spotless.

We had no time to use the face,irked such as the pool or basketball court.

I would highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: High floor facing the bay

As a hotel manager myself, I can be very critical, and seldom are all my expectations exceeded as was the case in two stays at this hotel in January. It is understated and at every turn, there is a "Wow", whether it be the incredible views, the impressive facilities (fantastic fitness area, pool, full court basketball, biliards room, bowling(!), spa and great food), in the center of downtown Miami. The room service meal I had was so good, I ordered the same things on my second stay! Conference facilities are magnificent. This is a property that will set the standard for 5 star into the future, and very, very few current hotels can hold a candle to it. Service was discreet and impeccable, there when you needed it, and invisible when you did not. My late checkout and early check in was accomodated without so much as a question, The only negative about the stay was that I could not stay longer..,

Room Tip: I had a high room with an amazing bay view...

I flew to florida to see the last space shuttle launch. It went off on schedule, so I had some extra time and went to Miami. The JW Marriott Marquis is amazing. Room was huge, giant floor to ceiling windows, etc. The bathroom by itself was about the same size as the "luxury" hotel I stayed at in South Beach the next day. The furnishings and decor were nicer than anything I've stayed at before, including some top of the line hotels all around the country. Great bed, I actually slept well past check out time.

Had a fun time walking to the mall and to the Mary Brickell area. Hotel is in a great location, valets were great, and the staff was fantastic. I went out to the pool area to look at the lights WELL beyond closing time, and security was right on me. They realized I was just admiring the sites and sat there and hung out with me for nearly 30 minutes.

At the time I was 31, travelling solo, spur of the moment. I got a great rate as a Marriott Rewards member, and will stay again next time I'm in town.
