Last month I stayed at this first JW Marriott Marquis in the world located downtown Miami. The rooms are spacious and the views are beautiful. The first night I had a regular room but the other 2 nights I requested a free upgrade to a corner room and obtained a beautiful pristine corner room overlooking the bay (any room ending with 01 is a corner room). Wall to wall windows gave a luxurious and spacious look to the room.
The rooms are spacious and modern, with a giant flat screen TV and appropriate lighting. Marble bathrooms are huge, with a built in TV in the mirror.
All rooms have an Illy expresso machine that is easy to use. And yes, it also has a computer with free wireless for your use. The only downside of the rooms is the noisy AC despite the hotel being brand new.
I judge the quality of a concierge lounge by the orange juice and croissants. This hotel lounge serves decent, buttery mini-croissants and fresh-squeezed orange juice.
What this hotel has that none of the other hotels I have been, was the Entertainment center with a mini-golf practice, a virtual bowling alley, a mini-theater with approximately 12 seats where you can watch TV or movies, and a pool room.
The swimming pool is kept very clean so is the hot tub.
Services in this hotel are prompt, and the staff very very friendly, professional and helpful.
The meeting rooms are modern however the downside is the central air conditioning which cannot be regulated easily. We froze to death during the meeting!
I would say that this hotel is the best quality-cost wise 5-star hotels that I have ever been, and it is suitable for both business and leisure.
