Also post hurricane, no applause A review of JW Marriott Miami
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!
