Overview

On-site restaurant is popular
Rooms and service received mixed reviews

Staying at this JW Marriott right across from The Galleria means you'll find spacious and inviting rooms with soothing decor, custom linens and HDTVs with premium movie channels. Recent guests appreciated the on-site amenities like the indoor-outdoor pool, fitness center and sauna, but reviews were mixed on service and decor. Some recent visitors felt the service was top-notch and enjoyed the updated rooms (most of which were renovated in 2015), while other guests cited thin walls and lackluster cleaning service as not being up to "JW standards." Though they may disagree on whether or not you should sleep here, visitors do recommend the on-site restaurant, praising the locally sourced "Texas cuisine with a fresh twist" served at Destino. Because this hotel is a member of the Marriott hotels family, Marriott Bonvoy members can use points to pay for rooms or upgrades.
