History, comfort, excellent service, and gorgeous contemporary art in the heart of Houston

Though we live in Houston, we often spend the night in the ever more exciting Downtown area. We had tickets to a play and stayed at our favorite downtown lodging, the JW Marriott on Main Street. Conveniently located in the very heart of the city, it stands next to 2 lines of the Houston rail system, which make it easily accessible to the Museum District, Reliant Stadium, Midtown, and the East End, in addition to Downtown. We received a warm greeting from Ender at the reception desk, and he allowed us to do a "spin the wheel" promotion that resulted in a $50 credit at the hotel's excellent Main Kitchen. He also gave us a nice room that he called a suite though it was simply a larger than average room (sadly, with no view). My elite status allowed us access to the lovely 11th floor executive lounge--unfortunately, on weekends, they do not do an evening hors d'oeuvres/drink service. It's disappointing that most hotels are cutting back on this service on weekends. However, the lounge did serve an excellent hot breakfast the next morning. The beds are remarkably comfortable, and with total black out curtains on the windows, we had one of the best nights of sleep in ages. Sadly, the hotel does not have a pool--it is one of the only major hotels in this sultry city without one. The spa, however, is lovely. Take some time to explore the public rooms--the art is gorgeous. Contemporary and bright, it juxtaposes well with the historic bones of the building. Our dinner at Main Kitchen was excellent--pricey, but the $50 gift certificate made it even more of a joy. At check out, Perke was very cordial and made us feel like the hotel really hopes we return. And we will (though I hope they bring back the adorable canine concierge they used to have!).

Business stay

Great location, room were spacious and clean, concierge lounge breakfast was good with a variety of selections.
The drinks at the lobby bar were well crafted and the calamari and charcuterie board were delicious.


Beautiful, well-appointed accommodations. Impeccable staff in all areas. Highly recommended. My host, Devon, granted me a room upgrade without any prompt from me to do so. Additionally, they accommodated a late checkout on account of a flight delay. Everyone at the hotel was genuinely invested in the satisfaction of their guests. Thank you!
