JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong
Travel Blogs from Hong Kong
We had booked a long weekend in Hong Kong, somewhere I had always wanted to visit and somewhere Kevin had visited once before over 30 years ago! Remember I am soooo much younger than him! ;) We flew from Haneda airport on a Thursday and returned home on the Sunday. I'm not sure what I was expecting....I knew that the island was small and crowded, …
After a 2.5 hr flight from Bangkok we arrived in Hong Kong and were surprised to find it relatively quiet with many shops closed for Chinese new year. It definitely made it much easier walking on the normally very busy pavements! In the evening we watched the new year's parade which went through the streets along with thousands of others! We spent …
Kzc stayed here on Mar 2, 2012 during their trip titled: Hong Kong for Work.
Pity I have work tomorrow - I love Hong Kong and the feel of the city.

Great hotel to stay at - we were there for 2 weeks so got a good feel fro the place. Fruit and newspaper daily, excellent service all round and great location, just off the edge of the chaos. 2 stops on the MRT to work, and a short 3 minute stroll to the Hong Kong Park.

Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong
The J.W. Marriott Hong Kong lives up to the upper end
Marriott standards. Rooms are not huge, but are ample.
Good service all around, free fruit daily delivered to room. Hotel is adjacent to huge Pacific Place Mall,
which has a great restaruant named Zen. 10 minute walk
to Star Ferry & Queens Pier via enclosed walkways.
Also 10 minute walk to the Peak Tram Station via a very nice park with a terrific aviary. The old
fashioned tram runs from directly in front of the
hotel and is a great, cheap way to see the city.
Views from the room and lobby bar are limited, due to
so many other high rises having been built in front
of the hotel. Hotel is farly priced. Size of room would be only complaint.
I stayed in an executive King on 31st floor at HK$3500 per night.
We just returned from a wonderful stay at the the JW Marriott - Hong Kong. The location and service were fabulous! We stayed on the concierge/executive level where we had access to complimentary breakfast, tea (which included sandwiches and desserts), cocktails/hors d'oeuvres and evening chocolates and cookies. This was great, especially because we were traveling with our 2 teenage daughters who can be picky eaters. It was nice to know that if they didn't like food at a restaurant, there would be plenty of delicious (and beautifully presented) food at the hotel. Although we checked into the hotel just as the "tea" was being put away, our daughters were presented with a large plate with a selection of gourmet sandwiches along with sodas. Our room had two walls of windows and great views. Fresh fruit and water were replenished daily. We have traveled extensively and the JW Marriott - Hong Kong is now one of our favorite hotels!
I stayed here in July on business. The location is in the Pacific Place complex, in Central Hong Kong, and is attached to the Lippo Center by enclosed walkway. It is adjacent to the Island Shangra La Hotel. The Star Ferry is a good half hour hike away, but taxis are plentiful outside of the hotel. The restaurants and bars are expensive as was the spa. The room rate is reasonable and was certainly worth the money. The hotel was a good value compared to The Mandarin and The Shangra La. The pool area is nice. The service is typical Hong Kong - which is very good. I have found no better service anywhere in the world. The main drawback for me is that the clientele is primarily western. Mostly Americans and British. I prefer to mix with Chinese when in China. While the location is central, it is a cab ride to the mid level escalators, Hollywood Road, and Lan Kwai Fong. I would not stay here if I was a tourist. FYI, while there is more to do on the Hong Kong side, the harbor view at night is better from Kowloon.
Great Hotel and Location
Thoroughly enjoyed the stay even though my room was on what one reviewer called the "drab side" of the hotel. My stay was for business and rather tight for time so I particularly appreciated the fact that Hong Kong park with its conservatory and excellent Aviary and the Peak Tram station was within easy strolling distance. I can't finish without mentioning the superb Seafood Buffet at the Marriott Cafe on Tuesday evening. Good show JW.
Terrific location and service
OK, Hong Kong is know for great hotels but this one is also excellent value for money, which cannot be said for some of the others. The wonderful, central location makes it possible to explore most of what you want to see, even on foot. There is great shopping at the base of the hotel or you're just minutes from a dozen other top-class shopping facilities. The star line ferry station is also an easy walk.
The food is very good and the staff very helpful. Do insist for a room with a view though as one side of the hotel views on to downtown and kowloon (breathtaking, especially at night) while the view from the other side is rather drab.
One of the reasons my partner and I wanted to go to Hong Kong for a second time was to stay at the JW Marriott again. The staff are wonderful, rooms are fantastic, location is perfect being on top of Pacific Plaza which as an MTR station as it gives you access to the rest of Hong Kong. I will be trying to stay here again for all future visits.
World class property on the Island side of the harbour
One of the best and most convenient hotels if you want to be on the island side of Hong Kong harbor.
Beautiful views from some of the rooms ... I was lucky enough to get a corner room on a high floor, and the trembling in my stomach from the precariously-perched hillside view was part awe, part vertigo, and definitely memorable.
As in most Hong Kong luxury hotels, the service and facilities were world-class. Definitely recommended.
