Review Summary



Bottom Line

The 313-room JW Marriott Marquis is reminiscent of a luxury hotel in Vegas: Everything is big, from the light fixtures to the bathrooms, and the array of amenities is so extensive guests might not have to leave the premises -- there are three restaurants, a pool, a basketball court, a virtual bowling alley, a 3D theater room, a golf school, and a huge fitness center. A good choice for business travelers, the hotel is one of the most modern hotels in Downtown Miami, and all rooms come equipped with desktop computers and giant 52-inch flat-screen TVs. For even more luxurious digs, you may consider Hotel Beaux Arts, Marriott's boutique hotel on the top floors of the building.

In Downtown Miami, with views of Biscayne Bay

Map of JW Marriott Marquis Miami

The JW Marriott is located in Downtown's Financial District, at the mouth of the Miami River, which cuts through downtown and empties into Biscayne Bay.

Miami's financial center occupies downtown's southern tip. The majority of Downtown Miami's hotels are located here, as well as numerous corporate offices. Though Downtown does not have a beach, many hotels have views of the bay. Attractions include museums, American Airlines Arena, and the Adrienne Arsht Center of the Performing Arts (a triple threat of opera, philharmonics and ballet).
