“Fantastic Surprise”
Reviewed 8 May 2012

I went to the wrong JW Marriott in Miami laate last week. Front desk staff said don't worry we will cancel your other room and rebook you here no issues... What a great front desk staff going above an beyond (they could have just laughed at me and sent me packing to the hotel I booked!)

Rooms are fantastics, TV in the Bath mirror to help you shave and watch AM tv is always a plus. Better staff, facilities and accomidations than the Ritz or 4 Seasons. You could not ask for more.

Room Tip: Some of the south facing rooms are a few feet longer due to the building shape... just ask at check...

Stayed here before a cruise. The room and service was excellent. Very modern. Everything is very upscale from the furnishing, to washroom amenities to the pod coffee makers in the room. Would stay here again in the future. The in room computer may not work will all web pages.

One note of caution when you are coming to stay at the JW Marriott Marquis. There is the JW Marriott and the JW Marriott Marquis on Biscayne Blvd Way. The staff said the confusion happens all of the time. While I do not know anything about the JW Marriott and am sure it is also fantastic, the JW Marriott Marquis is PERFECT! It is in a safe and central Miami location where one can freely stroll around and the rooms are some of the largest rooms I have ever seen. A HUGE flat screen TV in the bedroom and a TV above the sink in the washroom scream utter elegance! A wine shoppe and a cigar shoppe are located on the second floor with the bars and restaurants. I was present for a convention and the food was FIRST CLASS! This was not your usual hotel catering for a convention. The staff were very nice and the views from the rooms were incredible. The Hotel Beaux Arts is located on floors 38 and above (I think only three floors). My stay occurrred with the Latin Music Awards so it was fun to see "who is who" while I was there. This is a wonderful ocaltion and I highly recommend!

Room Tip: The higher floors have an awesome view!

Located in down town Miami, this hotel has some of the most courteous staff I have encountered.
When you ask to go to the hotel be sure to ask to go to the JW Marriott MARQUIS!!! I was initially brought to the JW Marriott that is 5 blocks away and also a beautiful property.
One awesome small thin this hotel does well is provide bottled water and coffee free to their guests. THe rooms are spacious, have modern finishes and lighting and a wonderful ambiance. The bathroom is great!. There is a tub and a walk in shower. The towels and linens smelled like vacation!!!
Overall great stay in a great room.

From the moment we pulled up several gentlemen were there to take care of our luggage & automobile. Check in was a breeze....
Room was just beautiful with an outstanding view of the Marina & all the beautiful yachts from our huge windows. Very pretty at night with all the lights lit up around our hotel. Plenty of luxurious thick towels & a TV built right into the large mirror in the bathroom. Plenty of toilietries.
Separte shower & bathtub. Had a minibar, coffee & tea. We did have several cocktails in the bar. Very nice bartenders & great service. :) When we left the next morning I went into the restuarant for a to go cup of coffee, wow found out it was free for their guest. Even though you cannot smoke in this hotel we would definately return!!

Room Tip: We were with another couple & were all going on a cruise the following day. If you take a high f...

The rooms are superb! Very large & spacious. Huge picture window, comfy beds, nice sitting area, very large desk, free wifi, robes, iron, ironing board, coffee, excellent mini bar (but don't move anything unless you want to pay for it), large flat screen tv, beautiful bathroom with a tv imbedded in the mirror! We stayed here one night before a cruise with my husband's company. We have stayed in many four & five star hotels before, the rooms in this hotel are exceptionally great. We did not see many other parts of the hotel except for some ballroom areas. Those were very elegant & modern looking. Great hotel & great service!

We stayed at this hotel for three nights. First the good: The view was superb. The room was modern and clean. There is a floor to ceiling window. The bathroom mirror has a TV embedded. There is a shower and a separate bathtub. Everything you expect too: iron and ironing board, hair blower, coffee maker, in-room safe (big enough for a laptop easily). There is an excellent fitness room. Bowling alley, full size basketball court, pool table, and a golf pro.
The bad: there is a wet bar refrigerator with everything on sensors ( move it and you pay for it).
The room temperature was uncomfortable during the night; the AC apparently was not powerful enough to cool the room. The bathroom offers little privacy with a glass door.
But what really annoyed me was the following: we checked out and inadvertently left a bag in the room with some gifts we had bought. We found out when we arrived home and called the hotel. They basically told us that there was nothing in the room. If there was nothing in the room then it must have magically disappeared because it would be impossible for someone at the hotel to take it.
So that is my review. A nice room, a great view and location, but be sure to watch out for the magically disappearing things.
