I was so hungry when I checked into the JW Marriot and I went to the Grill and had the best angus burger with smoked bacon and the corn and crab soup. Service was friendly and food was great. I recommend the burger--yummy!

The breakfast buffet is a good value hear with a nice selection of breakfast items and made to order omelets. Service was very good, with the exception that I did notice other guests having a tough time getting someone to man the omelet station.
