The JW Marriott has everything you need for a lovely getaway. Elegant without being pretentious, this hotel is 5 stars and then some.

Very clean rooms, knowledgeable friendly staff and the spa services were top notch.

Located in downtown GR with lots to do within walking distance.

Will stay here again.

Very nice hotel centrally located in downtown GR. Many rooms offer nice views of the river and the many bridges. The room I had was very clean and modern. Parking is available in a parking garage with skywalk access. Parking cost is on the expensive side.

The concierge staff was very courteous and attentive. The lounge offers drinks and snacks all day and evening. The evening food offering was not that great compared to other Marriotts. Few choices and very small portions.

Fitness room offered many cardio options as well as free weights and machines.

It was my birthday getaway for a night from my boyfriend who works extremely hard for his money and we truly felt like we did not get what we paid for. Breakfast was not included. We got charged for parking. I understand that it’s an upper class hotel yet I felt like no services were provided or that there was any satisfying amenities besides the fact the hotel is gorgeous. So if you’re a young couple looking for a good night away, this would not be the best place for that. Especially if money is tight and you wanna splurge.

Disclaimer: I’ve traveled around the world and went to hotels that were more luxurious or the equivalent to the JW Marriott and was wowed by the amazing services and amenities those hotels provided. So I definitely wasn’t wowed by the Marriott.

My husband and I stayed for one night on the 14th floor, King Room. Room was very clean, bed was comfortable and view of the river and GR were amazing!! We had great service, we were able to check in much earlier. We walked around GR in the afternoon and enjoyed cocktails on the J Deck. In the morning we took advantage of in room service, food was very good! We also went to the pool area to use the hot tub and steam room. Our room was next to the elevator and I wondered if we would hear it, but we were not bothered by it. Great black out shades as well! We slept so good... and I'm a light sleepr. No complaints at all. Hope to be back!! So many great restaruants that are walkable. Perfect for a night away.

Room Tip: We loved being high up for the views!
