“WOW!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 7, 2014

Of course I had read all the great reviews for this hotel on Trip Advisor, so my expectations were very high. They were all met or exceeded. It is truly a beautiful hotel with an outstanding staff. The room was spacious and the bathroom was roomy and nice.

When you first arrive at the hotel, you are impressed by the line of bellman waiting to assist arriving guests, so there is no wait for help with your luggage. Once inside you are taken to the front desk and that is where we had one of the most pleasant hotel experiences we have ever had.

Bogdan Moisa, Asst. Rooms Division Manager, assisted us at the front desk. He was so personable and found us a lovely room with a nice view. Then when we asked him about a local restaurant we had heard about, he assured us it was a good choice. He even called and made reservations for us at the restaurant and then escorted us out to the taxi area and gave the taxi driver instructions on where to take us. Mr. Moisa treated us so well we felt like "VIPs." It was a very pleasant experience.

This is my hotel of choice when staying in the Miami area.

I like the contemporary design of this hotel, sophistication and the nice view of Biscayne Boulevard from the top floor apartments. The bathroom is ruge and sophisticated, has a recessed screen tv in the mirror.

We booked through Expedia and requested 2 queens beds since we had both of our children traveling with us. The room type wasn't guaranteed and when we checked in were told that all was available was a king which we were fine with. They offered to upgrade us anyway so gave us a suite on the 32nd floor. It was huge and everything was very clean and beautiful. The staff was amazingly friendly and went out of their way to be hospitable. The fitness room was also really big and had nice equipment. We looked in at the bowling alley but thought $25/hour was a little pricey so we skipped it. It's a great location and within walking distance of restaurants, parks, etc. The only thing I wasn't super impressed with was the pool. It was nice and warm but there wasn't anything that really set it apart from any other pool. No staff or beverage service or anything like that. The kids had an ok time in it, but I think it was more geared towards business people looking to a swim a few laps or relax in the hot tub.

This hotel is amazing. There is not much to do around the hotel since it is in downtown but everything is a cab ride away. The rooms are gorgeous and very spacious. The pool area was nice. Not too big but perfect just to sit and enjoy a margarita by the pool.

Room Tip: We stayed on the marina side and it was a great view

Great rooms in the JW Tradition. Nice pool area, although spa is tiny. Other amenities very nice (gym, concierge lounge, etc.). Housekeeping a bit weak as getting it done before supper one day took 2 requests, getting the correct number towels was always a challenge. The day we flew out they missed our wake up call....! A cardinal sin in this travelers book!

Room Tip: Ask for a water view!

The hotel is beautiful - rooms are and luxurious, lobby is fancy, food is good. The sauna is nice and there are many extra amenities. However, this hotel disappointed me in many ways. Though there are many extras, such as bowling, golf, and billboards, these are all very expensive and I didn't see anyone use them during my stay. It would be much nicer of the hotel included these amenities. I was mainly disappointed by the pool. Unlike the website shows, it is not an infinity pool. But that is a small detail. My main complaint about the pool is that they do not even provide water by the pool, which is something they should do being a 4.5 star hotel. Additionally, they ran out of towels and it took an hour to get more. Though it is nice, the pool is lacking and it feels very businessy, there is barely anything to do in downtown Miami for vacationers.

Well what's to say about this top class hotel. They do go all the way to make your stay the best as possible. Valet was mandatory and friendly expect a 15 minute wait after calling for your car.

We had a room on the 41st floor in the room a large work desk with a computer. A full size bath and thick carpets, all very clean. There's a paid automatic mini bar with two free bottles of water next to it.

For our one year old they provided a crib and bathing care items in the crib.

Only thing missing were some extra towels for him. They only provided two in the room, all other hotels during our vacation provided 4.

I know that extra towels were just a call away but we decided to improvise.

No complaints whatsoever a great hotel in Downtown Miami.
