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
Had a night here before being picked up in the morning to go on a 7 day cruise. Reception very good and room fine although as you walked into the room you were hit by a musty smell which luckily you couldn’t smell once in the main room. Didn’t try food as looked expensive but had one round of drinks in the empty bar for €30 which is dear. Overall ok.
Was very disappointed in this property. The JW Marriott is supposed to be one of the nicest properties in the Marriott brand and this hotel was more akin to a roadside motel where you can rent rooms by the hour. What a dump! The carpet was old and stained, there were popcorn ceilings (in 2019!) and the furniture was tired and beat up.
I complained about my room multiple times and was finally moved into another room that was—SHOCKER—identical to the room I already had.
They advertise that they are renovating and they need to. Stay far away from this decrepit hotel until then. I’m gonna have to scrub all of my luggage down after having it on that carpet. ????
Similar to other posts, think this JW Marriott property ready for refresh. Staff is fantastic, location great, but rooms, gym, definitely restaurant a bit tired. Remodel time and then I think it will be ready again. Pool is very nice, fun bar outside close.
