Our family of 6 stayed here for 2 nights and found it to be a solid choice in JB. We are gold members with Marriott so it was an obvious choice for us. The beds were of classic Marriott quality and the bathrooms were clean and well-equipped. I really like the Tokyo milk toiletries that were provided. It was a nice change from the standard issue Marriott brands.
The staff is ever-willing to please and the club level rooms and executive lounge were well managed. Our daughter joined us in the lounge claiming she couldn't find her shoes so the staff ran and grabbed her some slippers. Each morning we enjoyed a peaceful breakfast of eggs, potatoes, fruit, noodles cheese, pastries, breads, yogurt, cereal, and various juices.
The pool area is pleasant and the gym well equipped.
Given that the hotel is only three months old I was a title surprised that a few things were not in stellar working order. Our shower drain was clogged and the doorbell to our room was not functioning and one whole side of the mirror lighting was out. In our children's room the handle for the sliding bathroom door kept popping off. I hope these are not maintenance issues but rather kinks that will be ironed out with time. Maintenance did fix the shower quickly but never did address the mirror light.
There are a number of good restaurant options, like the barbeque shop, right behind the hotel as well and food stands just a short walk up the road.
The views from the 16th floor were great. If we ever return to JB we will stay here again.
