What is the appearance of the hotel? Check the entrance and reception
The hotel wall is cream colored and the name “JW MARRIOTT HOTEL” was written in gold letters. The entrance to the hotel was 20 steps up the stairs from the left and right, so it was not visible from the road.
There were always two people at the entrance, and they will open the doors for you.
The walls inside the hotel are brown.
At the time of check-in, if you are sitting at the lobby waiting the staffs will bring you water.
There was a luxurious front desk.
What it is the Standard Room like?
The color of the wallpaper and the carpet is yellow, and it was cute. The furnitures were all brown.
One king size bed and a chair for one person.
The bed was a king size bed and the sheets were clean with no smell. The bed was comfortable, and I was able to sleep well. There were four pillows, and they were very soft and easy to sleep on.
Bedside table phone and remote control.
A desk and a chair.
There is a shelf and a wall-mounted TV.
The bathroom had a toilet on the left, a washbasin in the middle, and a shower and bath on the right.
The bathroom was luxurious with a large marble washbasin.
I was happy that there was a bathtub. The water pressure of the shower was strong. The partition of the bathtub was a glass door, so the floor did not get wet.
In addition, a scale was placed in the bathroom, but it was not possible to use it because it was marked as an error. There was also a toilet.
AROMATHERAPY’s shampoo, conditioner, body wash and soap were placed in the shower room.
In addition, one body lotion, one shave, one shower cap, one dry cotton swab and one mouthwash was placed on the wash basin. It was disappointing that the amenities were only prepared one by one, despite the fact that there were the two of us staying. However, the quality is good it smelled very nice.
Mini bar and cafe
The mini bar comes with 2 free mineral waters and glasses.
We had coffee in the morning, and it was delicious. There was also tea.
The inside of the refrigerator was full, and there were soft drinks, beer, and whiskey.
Nuts and snacks were also placed on the TV shelf.
Closet and safe
The closet was wide, and there were many hangers prepared in the closet.
The safe was a type which you set your favorite four-digit number as a security number.
View from the terrace
The terrace was large and had two tables and two chairs. There is only a fence so you can see the terrace next to you very well.
You can see tall buildings.
You can overlook the street in front of the hotel.
I stayed in the room on the east side, so I could not see the sunset from the room.
The night view from the room was amazing.
Restaurants in the hotel
You can have breakfast at the “Isabela’s buffet restaurant” on the second floor.
For lunch and dinner there is a restaurant called “La Terraza Cafe & Bar,” which serves international cuisine.
There was also “Drake’s Bar” on the same floor as the front desk.
Facilities in the hotel
7th floor fitness center.
The pool was like an urban oasis because it is surrounded by buildings. There was also a bar. There were a lot of benches and tables, so you can spend time relaxing as there are only a few people at the pool.
The fitness gym is also on the same floor.
There is also a locker room with towels prepared, so there is no need to bring one on your own. Lemon water and apples were prepared as well.
Environment around the hotel
Because the US-1 is in front of the hotel, there were many people around and it felt safe.
There are many restaurants and cafes, fast food restaurants in the area, so you will not have trouble finding a place eat. There was also a 24-hour drugstore called CVS located opposite the hotel, and a Seven Elevens behind it, which was convenient for buying drinks and snacks.
In Miami, there is a Metro Rail which runs once every 10 to 15 minutes with a fare of $2.25 and runs in major cities. From the airport, you can reach the nearest station, Brickell Station, in about 20 minutes. In addition, it is approximately 10 minutes on foot from the hotel to Brickell Station. Brickell Station is near a large shopping center called Brickell City Center, lined with luxury brands. In addition, it is convenient because you can go to sightseeing spots in all directions if you ride the free trolley. It takes about 20 minutes on foot to get to downtown. I used an Uber from the hotel to the airport, at it took 15 minutes.
Staff and customer base
The staffs were very caring and helpful. This time I stayed for 3 nights, but I actually forgot to make a reservation for 1 night, but the staffs added another ay for me as soon as I told them.
I did not have many chances to meet with the other guests. In the lobby, I saw Asians ad Westerners. In addition, I did not see any children, and I got the impression that there were many elderly couples and only grown ups staying.
I was very happy to stay at this hotel. First of all, it was convenient to go anywhere. If you go south from Brickell Station by Metro Rail, you can get to a fashionable town called Coconut Grove, or visit the Biscaya Palace and Chops and Merrick Park, which are popular tourist attractions. There are many free metros and trolleys, and the nearest station to the Metro Mover is a 3-minute walk away, and the trolley stop is right in front of the hotel. The hotel is clean, luxurious and comfortable. There were luxury hotels such as W Hotel and Conrad along the US1 on Brickell, but this hotel is affordable among the luxury hotels, and it was relatively small, so people who want to stay in a quiet hotel will definitely feel comfortable at this hotel. I would love to stay here again if I get the chance to come to Miami.
