JW Marriott Hotel Bogota
What We Love
- La Mina's fine dining and silver-mesh wallpaper is the city’s best hotel dining experience
- Star-studded service levels fit for a demanding guest list
- A drink menu that includes 73 martinis at Dry 73 bar
What To Know
- A bit of a walk to the historic center, home to the city’s main tourist and cultural attractions
- Crowded with business travelers during the week; weekend guests will have the hotel to themselves
- Strictly business district; for some retail therapy, guests will need to head north to Chico
- Parking On Site
- Room Service
Colombia’s interiors guru Miguel Soto has carved out opulent public spaces that incorporate the mineral riches that have lured people to Colombia for centuries. Jorge Lizarazo’s Hechizoo design stable provides silver and multicolored copper-mesh flourishes to an impressive double-height lobby and the hotel’s secluded, high-end surf-and-turf restaurant La Mina. In public spaces and guest rooms, a color scheme of cream, brown and red adds a luxurious, soothing touch while contemporary lighting fixtures offer a subtle warm glow.
Bed and Bath
The furnishings in the bedrooms lack the velvet and satin flourish of the public areas, but Soto’s classic interiors strike a historic chord with pre-Colombian gold motifs woven into the carpets and bedding. Orchids, Colombia’s national flowers, decorate every room, and the marble fixtures and fittings in the bathrooms coupled with bath products made from wild plant extracts from the Colombian Andes, add to the hotel’s luxuriant but local feel.
Rafael Suarez’s sophisticated French cuisine brightens up the low-lit restaurant La Mina, an underground homage to Zipaquira Salt Cathedral, the architectural marvel to the north of Bogota. From succulent rib-eye stakes to grilled Maine lobster or glazed New Zealand lamb cutlets, La Mina’s signature specialties are served with specialist salts mined from all over the world. Long-stay guests can work their way through as many as 73 different martinis on offer at the petite bar Dry 73 or take the edge off Bogota’s inclement climate in the underground swimming pool, spa and sauna.
In the Area
For a meal on the town, visit the Chateaubriand at the bastion of French cuisine, Criteriona, or try the sublime ceviche and tiraditos at Peruvian gastronomic phenomenon Astrid & Gaston. Nearby, Tudoresque townhouses have been converted into hip hangouts — favorites include Magnolio or Bruto. Culture buffs shouldn’t leave without visiting the remarkable attic of Olga de Amaral’s townhouse studio, which is filled to the rafters with the celebrated Colombian artist’s beguiling gilded textiles, or picking up something a little more affordable at the city’s top contemporary art gallery, Galeria Casas Reigner.
How to Get There
Staff is always very helpful and courteous. They make your stay pleasant. The rooms are clean and roomy; the restaurants and room service is sharp. Their spa is amazing!
You’ll always see beautiful flower arrangements in the lobby.
Tuve la fortuna de conocer el desayuno buffet del hotel y me pareció totalmente increíble. No solo por su variedad en deliciosos productos si no por la atención que brinda el personal del hotel. Los precios son acordes con la calidad de experiencias y productos que ofrecen, si hay alguien en busca de relajarse y disfrutar de buena comida este sería el lugar perfecto. Por otro lado, el Spa me pareció impecable y el sitio perfecto para compartir con amigas y dejar el estres a un lado.
Muchas gracias por todo JW Marriott!!!
I was lucky enough to try the hotel's breakfast buffet and it was totally amazing. Not only for its variety of delicious products but for the attention offered by the hotel staff. The prices are in line with the quality of the experiences and the products they offer, if someone is looking to eat and enjoy good food this would be the perfect place. On the other hand, the Spa seems impeccable and the perfect place to share with friends and leave stress aside.
Thank you very much for everything JW Marriott !!!
The service was amazing and Felipe was very helpful, he did such an amazing job. Great great service and will definitely come back. The breakfast at the lounge was amazing!
Very easy location to go to restaurants and other areas.
There is no platinum treatment, there is no platinum welcome ceremony, the actual credit points do not match the amount
The amount of the bill is different from the number of incoming points
can you help me check
As a Marriott loyalist I was especially disappointed by the lack of service at the JW in Bogota. To be fair, I am accustomed to the service excellence at the JW line around the world and I write reviews to help other make the best decisions. Not to make a business happy. You can decide based on my thoughts how this hotel would work for you. Pros: A variey of restaurants in the hotel, nice rooms, good ‘At your service’ staff, great food in 5he executive lounge. Cons: Few staff that truly speak and understand English, Too Small and very loud executive lounge for status members, two very small alcoholic beverages in the executive lounge and crazy prices for extra drinks, lack of organization, no attention to detail, Extreme service bias to male travelers (women ignored!), no attention to member profile information, loud live music that extends into rooms on the same side all the way to the 10th floor, lack of service to priority members, no show for a scheduled hotel driver, missed wake up calls, and many many more. The worst: Most don’t care about providing good service, they simply Don’t Care! As someone who travels internationally for work, I select hotels that have happy staff that like their job and genuinely want to provide great service to all. I can’t begin to list all the issues I experienced but they started when I walked in and continued through my departure. While staff said sorry, the issues continued. I would not recommend staying here if you would like staff that truly understand english, need a quiet stay, would like real customer service, and prefer being treated like you are welcomed. Except for the male status gueats, I am shocked at the number of high rated reviews listed for this hotel. The service, staff, food, and amenities at the Courtyard Marriott near the hotel is a much better place to stay.
