U.S. News Review

Not to be confused with its sister property, the JW Marriott Marquis, this hotel primarily caters to working travelers with a full-service business center and plenty of meeting space. But that's not to say that this member of the JW Marriott clan won't appeal to leisure travelers as well: The hotel sits in downtown Miami near Little Havana, offering a convenient location to popular attractions like the Vizcaya Museum. Meanwhile, the property features amenities that any guest can enjoy, including an outdoor pool, the on-site SaLus Spa and three in-house restaurants. And guest rooms here — with their sweeping views overlooking Biscayne Bay or the Miami skyline, flat-screen TVs and minibrrs — are described by many visitors as impressive. However, not all previous guests were satisfied with their stay at the JW Marriott Miami. Some travelers report less-than-stellar customer service, citing staff members as a bit unattentive. This hotel participates in the Marriott Rewards program, meaning members can earn and use points here.
