U.S. News Review

The Marriott Hotel Group didn't skimp on the details at the JW Marriott Marquis Miami. For example, this hotel features a fitness complex with a virtual bowling alley and a 10,000-square foot NBA-approved basketball court (both fee-based). And the swimming pool is a massive stainless steel beauty that's outside (a rarity for downtown Miami). What's more, each of the 313 rooms feature Illy espresso machines, 52-inch flat-screen TVs and pillow menus to ensure guests sleep as soundly as possible. The effort put in by this JW Marriott hotel's designers and staff hasn't gone unnoticed by those who've already stayed in the Marquis. Most visitors have positive reports to give on the accommodating employees and the stylish facilities. And foodies say that the French fare served at db Bistro Moderne — the Daniel Boulud-affiliated restaurant that the JW Marriott shares with its sister property, the Hotel Beaux Arts Miami — to be nothing short of delicious. You'll find the JW Marriott Marquis Miami surrounded by the fine dining and swank hotels of Biscayne Boulevard.

Critic Reviews


“The 313-room JW Marriott Marquis is reminiscent of a luxury hotel in Vegas: Everything is big, from the light fixtures to the bathrooms, and the array of amenities is so extensive guests might not have to leave the premises.”


“From the three-story crystal chandelier in the entry to the smart and symmetric guest rooms, the hotel feels futuristic and polished.”

Travel + Leisure

“Guests practice their downward-facing dog at the fitness and yoga studio, tee off at the indoor on-site golf school, or take a dip in the heated outdoor pool.”
