A smooth flight and some shut eye on the plane--all welcomed as I am a terrible flyer and I needed/wanted a few more minutes of sleep! The most excitement seemed to be the young lady beside me- needless to say I passed over my air sickness bag! American Airlines has ...

... I suddenly had the craving!) Add on top, an unhealthy amount of 7/11 Big Gulps and my desire to try 3 new flavours of coke including Orange, Raspberry and Strawberry , I was well and truly living the American dream!

On this day however, I went to the Cuban part of town to see if I could fit in with them with my new found tan! Turns out the commercialised but of Little Cuba was pretty small and only covered a couple of blocks and the rest of it was pretty residential ...

... have good enough reviews to sway us. We settle for riding the free metro-loop to see the art institute and concert Hall - it is pretty, Art Deco style - it's closed! People visit Miami for the beaches, the spas, the gold courses and maybe the sports. There is nothing else here! It is a pointless day and we wish we'd stayed at the beach. The luggage place closes at 9pm so we slowly meander back to the airport disappointed with the wasted ...

... a couple of standard sizes fish he said they did not fight that much. Some other family hooked up a shark which they landed - again though the line etc they used in the boat meant pretty much you would be unlucky not to have landed a fish. Oh well. So on the ride back we decided to go ahead and book a flight to Orlando for Walt Disney land as obviously another day fishing was not worth it! So tomorrow we are off to be big kids and okay in the land of Micky ...

    Also post hurricane, no applause


    Having had to cancel our stay in another hotel because it had no electricity, compliments of Hurricane Wilma, we do feel fortunate that we were able to book into the JW Mariott. It was fully operative. The bed room was quite nice, but the bath room was very ordinary. There is no landscaping to the property and no view of any pleasant dimension. The room for breakfast was not at all appealing in its starkness and the service was deplorable. The service for dinner the night before was also not very good, but the restaurant was quite crowded as it was one of the few functioning in the area. There was no excuse for the breakfast inadequacies: there were few people in the restaurant. While we felt fortunate to have a room given all the problems in Miami at the time, this hotel in structure, aesthetics and service can not hold a candle to the Ritz Carlton in Coconut Grove. If you are looking for a special place to stay, check out the Ritz and compare prices. Even a $100 difference is well worth the expenditure to be pampered at the Ritz!

    Post Hurricane


    We stayed at this hotel for a conference and vacation afterwards. This followed Hurricane Wilma. I have to commend the staff and hotel. They, along with others in this area had electricity, running water and were running very normal when we arrived 3 days later. The staff went out of their way to check us in and make us comfortable. This was a great feat due to many of the windows being blown out on the west and south side. The pool was closed, but other than that, our stay was great. Food and room service 24 hours was excellent with large portions, and very fast. Kudos to them.



    Awesome hotel. Very beautiful. Everyone is extremely helpful. Very service oriented. Room was nice size, had free internet computer, great restraurants. Nice workout room but could be expanded. Pool and spa looked great but we didnt try them.

    Don't Bother


    Stayed here after a cruise in January, 2005. Made reservations through Marriott rewards, but at check out time, they wouldn't accept them. Even after they saw our coupons at check-in! Was embarassing, especially with my family watching.

    Elegant hotel in financial district


    The JW Marriott is an elegant, business hotel in the financial district of Miami. As other reviewers have noted, the rooms feature a very comfortable bed and are decorated more like a Ritz-Carlton than an ordinary Marriott. The staff is extemely friendly and efficient and the valet parking service is very quick. We did not eat in the hotel--save one room service breakfast that arrived on time. Because it is in the business district, the hotel (unlike most Miami properties) does not have any balconies. It does have an attractive pool and spa on the 7th floor.



    J.W. Marriott is awesome. Stayed here for the last three nights of my vacations and loved it. As I like to see all around, stayed in three different hotels located all over the city and by far this is the best hotel in Miami. Front Desk Staff is very friendly and kind. Hotel is a short walk away from downtown (flager St.) and close by a metromover station. Facilities are classy and bright. Rooms are spotless, comfortable and have all you need to not leave, however if you decide to have some fun in town, a taxi ride back home from South Beach will cost around us$20. Pool/Spa is neat. Over all it exceeded my expectations.

    Frequent traveller


    Travel to Miami for business twice a month and usually stay here or the Intercontinental. Choose this hotel for it's quiet, subdued atmosphere, nice health club, Brickell location, and most comfortable beds in Miami.

    Just avoid both restaurants - terrible, terrible service. Been to Isabella's once for dinner and twice foR breakfast and each time the service was amongst the worst I've yet to experience ANYWHERE.

    The bed is great!!


    The hotel was fantastic to say the least. It's near the end of the main road which a great because it's not a lot of traffic. They have a cute little beach setting where the pool is. And they have hammocks to relax. As on reviewer said, the beds are fantastic. I just wanted to sleep and lay in bed. I haven't slept on a great bed at hotels like this in YEARS. Don't hesitate to come here. Very pleasant place and staff.

    Overwhelmed By Staff Effort


    The staff at this hotel are so highly trained, its difficult to find any fault with the hotel. Every time you think you have a legitimate complaint, the warm smile and helpful attitude of the staff just melt you. The service totally makes up for any shortcomings. It has to be experienced to be believed. These people are total professionals, committed to providing the very best service in the city of Miami, and quite possibly all of North America. They have won my loyalty. If you can afford it, the JW Marriott Miami is DEFINITELY worthy of its reputation.

    Very Pleased


    Elegant rooms were very well appointed and clean. The down feather bed was luxurious and made it hard to get out of bed in the morning.

    Convenient location if conducting business downtown but probably not the best choice for the leisure traveler since it's not within walking distance of any attractions. Service was efficient and prompt. Overall, very pleased.
