JW Marriott Mexico City
Travel Blogs from Mexico City
A ****** flight though the night and we are in Mexico City. Landing early in the morning sounded good on paper but meant we caught the rush hour traffic into the city. 2hrs in a cab to get to the hotel by which time we are both in need of a shower, bed and beer (in no particular order). Fortunately we are in the JW Marriot and so our room is ready …
... in our home because our apartment is not ready for move in. We are staying in a hotel located one block from the U.S. Embassy in downtown Mexico City. We will be moving to Polanco, the very upscale neighborhood of Mexico City, in a few weeks if everything goes well. We cannot wait to move ...
... half hour, then once we found it went and had subway for lunch. The next few hours we spent walking around looking at shops and doing our best to kill time. At one point Bobbie went to buy something from the convenience store and like us with our Spanish a young guy struggled with his English when saying goodbye to Bobbie the young man nervously game out with "hello", it made us laugh, we are not the only ones stumbling over a different language. Once it ...
... couple of hours as we had just missed a bus and would have needed to go via the downtown and change, so we took a shared minibus and were there in twenty minutes. It was almost dark by the time we arrived, so we dumped our bags in the room and went straight to the supermarket. Unfortunately, due to heavy traffic it took an hour to get there and, whilst it was quicker on the way back, the whole expedition ended up taking almost three hours so we didn't have time for much in the evening.
With much sadness, we are leaving LA for a new destination. Looking back over the last month, LA hasn't been a place that is full of surprising things or amazing sites and sounds - what it has been is a comfortable, relaxing, slow-paced life. In other words, a home away from home. I feel like I have got to know LA quite well yet on the other hand, feel like we only scratched the surface. Its been a good ...

Historical Traveler Reviews JW Marriott Mexico City
I had written last year before my wedding about my great experience with the JW Mexico City. I just realized that I never wrote another review after my wedding.
I thought that the hotel was great! The food and pool was very good even though khali kahre hastan. Everyone should stay at that hotel.
Not only is this hotel one of the best in the city, it is also located in the best neighborhood. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.
Came to stay at the JW Marriott on business for a few weeks and found it very nice, except for the fact that the hotel staff stole a gift that was delivered by my business associates. Imagine how unmannerly they thought I was for never thanking them for the gift they thought would be waiting in my room upon my arrival. It wasn't until 2 weeks into my stay that someone asked if I didn't like the gift. When I told them I never received one my business associates called to inquire and the hotel told them that I was not a registered guest so therefore they could not be held accountable for any deliveries. Not sure how I was unregistered after having reservations for a month prior and staying there for 3 weeks. It is a decent hotel, but don't leave anything valuable in the rooms or have anything delivered there. They will steal it and not apologize for it. Stay somewhere else.
JW Marriott Hotel Mexico City - Outstanding in every way!
The JW Marriott Hotel Mexico City was outstanding in every way, from location to room to amenities to food to service - especially the extremely friendly and helpful staff. The finest hotel at which I have ever stayed. (I particularly recommend the executive floor rooms overlooking Chapultepec.) I'm not affiliated with Marriott - I mean it! Go!
What a Place
I stayed here a half dozen times until the price rose out of my range.
This may be the finest hotel I have ever visited. Service is flawless.
Beautifully maintained. Spacious rooms with a substantial feel to them.
If you can afford it, stay here. You won't regret it.
Great Hotel!I had the opportunity to spend one night at the JW Marriott hotel in Mexico City and it is truly a great hotel.
I'm so happy with the JW! I stayed there in April, 2003 for just one night, and it was great. Everyone is so friendly, the bed is great...bathrobes and slippers are always welcome! When I walked in, I saw a nice little sculpture on the entertainment center and thought it might serve a purpose...it did! It was the ice bucket and it was already filled with fresh ice! Even a scale in the bathroom.
I'm getting married in a couple of month in Mexico City, and all of my out of town (American) guests are staying here. I'm so excited because I know that they will love it!
The pool on the 7th floor has the best view of the surrounding area.
And, the treadmills have thier own personal TVs!
Highly recommend it.
There are several fine hotels that I have stayed at around the Zona Rosa and Polanco areas (Sheraton Maria Isabel and Nikko to name 2), but the JW Marriott tops them all by quietly and confidently excelling in ALL areas. Both business and nightlife makes trips to this area tiresome, but when you return to the JW at the end of the night, it is so quiet and relaxing that you are guaranteed a great night's sleep. The beds are the best around, and yes, there's a great chocolate waiting for you on the pillow. The dry cleaning is in your room before 5 pm the same day. The 7th floor workout facility includes high-grade treadmills and LifeSteppers, and an outdoor open-air patio with a swimming pool, hot tub, and lounge chairs/tables. The concierges are truly like your best friends from high school when it comes to making every last effort to help you anything you need. And, it has the most fantastic breakfast in the city without feeling like you are in a crowded train station -- very relaxing. Cooked-to-order items are fast and perfect, and Europeans, Mexicans, and Americans alike will find their home favorites here.Worried about english? They all speak it perfectly with a smile. Forget something? They have it in the lobby store (even more bizarre products such as styling gel, etc.)Recently there was a big 7.6 earthquake which shook the area (centered away from the city), but not one piece of anything fell off the tables in the room.I cannot imagine a better hotel, and always look forward to staying there when away from home.
Great Service and Warm smiles
I stayed at this hotel by accident as I had lost a flight and was grounded until the next day which was September 11th... which made me stay an even longer time. The hotel is in every sense aewsome, very clean and modern, rooms are very confortable, but the service there is by far the warmest ever. Their concierge desk is the most resourseful I have ever worked with, in light of the flight ban into the US they arranged a seat on a domestic airliner which flew me to Tijuana and I then crossed the international border by foot. I then rented a car and got home safely. It is not the kind of service you expect from a normal Marriott, but this one is special. I will always stay at this hotel in the future.
