I think this is the most modern hotel I have stayed in to date. The IP phones, televisions in the bathrooms mirrors, and big desk were very nice. Bed was very comfortable. Room had plenty of floor space, closet space and walk around space. Bathroom was a highlight, which has been my pleasant experience at the three JW Marriott hotels I have stayed in. This one had a golden brown marble or some kind of stone as the main color--very nice. Big bathtub, separate shower, Aromatherapy products.
The "beyond the expected" at this hotel for me were these things: The gym was better than many regular membership gyms. Little touches like lime water and orange water and lemon water were good. Also, plenty of hand towels for sweat and moist towelettes for wiping gym equipment. Gym was also spotless. There were more free weights by far than the typical hotel gym. Pool was a good size and had both sun and shade areas in the morning.
Front desk staff and valets were superb.
The breakfast buffet was standard for high end hotel--everything that should be hot was hot, cold things were cold and egg dishes were cooked to order.
Only one downside during this hotel visit: The causal restaurant in the hotel, Met Cafe and Bar, had mediocre food. Fortunately their service was good.
We liked the color pallet used in this hotel quite a lot. The cool tans, golds and browns were soothing, comfortable and atypical for Miami which is in my experience, bright whites, tropical colors and more bling.
