Downtown location and friendly staff
Layout and view varies greatly from room to room
This JW Marriott outpost is set downtown (as its name suggests), within walking distance of many Houston attractions like Minute Maid Park and the Buffalo Bayou, businesses and the convention center. The hotel has plenty of on-site diversions as well, such as a spa, a gym and a restaurant. After you've explored all the JW Marriott Houston Downtown and the city has to offer, retreat to your guest room, where a shaved chocolate art turndown treat awaits your return. Each room also comes equipped with a Nespresso machine, free internet access, a flat-screen television and an in-room iPad that controls room service and valet retrieval, among other things. Despite the ample amenities, recent guests offer mixed reviews about this property. Some said they were impressed by the service staff and loved the hotel's location, while others were disappointed by the layout and views in their accommodations during their stays. Keep in mind that because this is a Marriott property, this hotel participates in the Marriott Bonvoy program, meaning guests can collect and redeem points here.
