Despite its hip Brickell Avenue location, this downtown hotel is a study in traditional elegance, from its imposing, high-ceilinged lobby with dark wood paneling to the guest rooms’ formal furnishings and stately marble bathtubs. Geared toward business travelers, each of the 296 rooms features three telephones, a comfortable work space, and high-speed wireless internet (for a fee), while 19 on-site event rooms totaling nearly 30,000 square feet can accommodate meetings and crowds of up to 1,000 people. In the market for less business, more pleasure? Leisure guests can book an 80-minute massage and foot scrub, an aromatic flax seed-based facial, or other treatment at the SaLus spa—or take a dip in the heated stainless steel pool outside. For a quick lunch or dinner, try the casual La Terraza Café & Bar, or grab a beer and classic British pub grub at Drake’s Bar.
In the Area
The trendy Brickell neighborhood overflows with dining options. Carnivores can choose from EDGE Steak & Bar in the Four Seasons Hotel Miami and Graziano’s, an Argentine steakhouse originally begun in Buenos Aires. Or, head to Peruvian-inspired COYA to watch chefs at work behind the sleek ceviche counter while sipping infused piscos with notes of fruit, herbs, and spices. Work up an appetite at the Mary Brickell Village shops two blocks from the hotel, or venture a few miles north to the Pérez Art Museum Miami, which features contemporary art reflective of Miami’s Latin American and Caribbean roots.
How to Get There
This is a great hotel. Amazing gym room & guest room, good structure for business meeting, very good region, next to the brickel center and whole food market very close. There is a Japanese restaurant across the street that is amazing. I really recommend this hotel.
Giulia at check in was super nice, she was helpful and had a warm welcoming from the minute I went to check in! She is a great member to the hotel team! I am an associate with Mariott myself and I am glad I was treated with the same respect as others.
I had a 1 night business stay and was looking forward to staying at this JW Marriott. I couldn’t believe how paper thin the walls were. I thought the woman was actually in the room based on how clearly I could hear her phone conversation. I’ve stayed in countless Marriotts (all types and many different locations) and have never been in a room with such thin walls. So disappointed.
Location of the hotel is ok. A number of restaurants nearby as well as shopping.
Stayed here due to my wife’s work meeting at the hotel. The Front Desk staff were very welcoming and pleasant. Door staff were helpful and assisted me with storing my rental bike. The location is right in the business district so it is centrally located. My wife found the meeting rooms and food to be good. As I was not there doing business it was a bit far from accessing the beaches. Using Uber or the bike was necessary to get to the “tourist areas”. The room furnishings were a bit dated but the space was comfortable and clean. Hallways could use some refreshing. The pool and pool area was nice. Found it very windy though as it was affected by “wind tunnels”from neighbouring high rises. Got a bit of a chuckle on check in when the receptionist said our room had a view of the bay. Check out the photo and see if you agree.
I am very fond of the Marriott brand. We chose this hotel because of the location. I am very disappointed in our stay at this hotel. Our room was not ready upon arrival, we were promised a call and/or text which never came. There were creepy critters on our curtains, we left our room feeling grossed out. Management promised to make things right and never did. We stayed there late February 2018, still waiting on a call back, but won't hold my breath.
