This downtown Miami hotel is located near Biscayne Bay and Bayside and is less than 6 miles from Miami Beach. The hotel provides standard accommodations with one king or two double beds, with suites also offering sofa beds. Although often used for businesses and conferences, the weekends are less crowded and become more family friendly. The hotel also features a pool.

Had a night here before being picked up in the morning to go on a 7 day cruise. Reception very good and room fine although as you walked into the room you were hit by a musty smell which luckily you couldn’t smell once in the main room. Didn’t try food as looked expensive but had one round of drinks in the empty bar for €30 which is dear. Overall ok.

Was very disappointed in this property. The JW Marriott is supposed to be one of the nicest properties in the Marriott brand and this hotel was more akin to a roadside motel where you can rent rooms by the hour. What a dump! The carpet was old and stained, there were popcorn ceilings (in 2019!) and the furniture was tired and beat up.
I complained about my room multiple times and was finally moved into another room that was—SHOCKER—identical to the room I already had.
They advertise that they are renovating and they need to. Stay far away from this decrepit hotel until then. I’m gonna have to scrub all of my luggage down after having it on that carpet. ????
