I recently traveled to Miami for a nice break from the cold and snow. Overall I had a good experience at the JW Marriott and the hotel has the potential to be great.
The hotel is beautiful...very modern design with all the amenities that you would expect from a luxury hotel.
If you're in town on business it's a good location..away from the party scene of South Beach but a short ride away.
Overall service is pleasant and attentive
DB Moderne restaurant was excellent
The service is not quite up to the standard of a luxury hotel. It's good but not great so there is plenty of room for improvement.
The concierge and other staff should have a better idea of things to do in the area. For example, the concierge sent me to the Design Center area for shopping on Saturday and most of the stores were closed. This is something a well trained concierge should know.
Since the hotel is new, the hours of operation for the Wine Boutique and chocolate shop were inconsistent. The spa/fitness center did not have classes/yoga over the weekend so I ended up going across the street to Exhale Spa located at Epic Hotel (very nice)! Hopefully this will change as business picks up.
Overall I would recommend for business travelers. Downtown Miami does not have much to offer so if you're traveling for pleasure you will end up taking a cab and/or driving to find things to do.
