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
Bogota has amazing reviews, food and people ! The concierge Herberth was so helpful and friendly with all the travel plans, where to go in the city and outside the city as well and resteraunt reservations! Would definitely come back and recommend this place 🤗
I have enjoyed my stay at JW Marriott Bogota enormously. The food is excellent, the service is great, the rooms are nice and very clean. In particular, the conceirge, Herberth, was courteous and helpful. He was very knowledgeable about Bogota. I recommend this hotel highly.
The stay was great! We stayed here for four days then went to Cartagena and then returned to bogota for a couple more days. They were more than helpful coordinating transportation to and from the airport and even with the hotel in Cartagena. They held our baggage in storage no problem. Overall such a great trip with great drivers, good recommendations from Herbeth, the concierge, and overall great service from the entire staff. Barely had to lift a finger and didn’t have to worry about a thing.
I usually stay on a different hotel but my company made a reservation here because of its location, I’ve to say that exceeded my expectations on a whole new level! The facilities (as you might expect) are amazing! But I have to mention the outstanding service they have!! Every single person is so committed to make you feel comfortable at all times...I’m really impressed! For sure I’ll be back! Thanks everyone!
Class-act amenities, of course, but what makes this location especially stand out is the quality and care from its people. I stayed for four months awaiting an apartment to move into. Needless to say, during those four months, a very small number of frustrating situations arose, such as water not being available during an unexpected plumbing repair as I needed to shower at 3AM in preparation for my early workday. Rather than blaming external factors, the management rectified the situation with generosity and made me feel cared for. I constantly found myself having to decline offers to help because it was always forthcoming in earnest. I also recognized several faces of employees from previous stays 5-7 years ago, which speaks volumes. Keep up the good work.
