Disappointing overall
I don't normally write hotel reviews, because I normally get what I expect from a hotel. My stay here was not a normal one. I only stayed for one night here, because I flew into town for a wedding, and my party had rented a house for the remainder of my weekend. Even though the gentleman who checked me in, Ryan, was extremely courteous and helpful, the room itself was extremely disappointing, to say the least. I hadn't noticed any problems when I checked in, but after I came back from a night out around 2 am, the guests in the adjacent room began making a lot of ruckus, which was understandable, given it was a Friday night. What was not understandable, however, was the shocking lack of soundproofing between rooms. I had to endure hours of drunken tirades, unable to sleep. I considered asking for assistance, but it was early morning at that point, and I knew the only thing they could do was move me to another room, which I wasn't willing to do at 3 in the morning on the day of my check-out. I also noticed ugly green tape over the smoke detector installed directly over the bed, impossible to miss. Can Marriott not afford new smoke detectors, while they could afford Starwood? For a supposedly premium brand hotel, my experience was far from premium. Should've stuck with the Westin, which is now under Marriott management anyway.

Houston Getaway
Spent 4 days at the JW Marriott as part of our tour of Texas. The rooms were lovely very clean with beautiful bathrooms and the gym was clean to the point of sparkling. My husband and I love to work out and swim in the am before we start our day which was great. What really shocked us however was the pool and patio area. The pool appeared to be a tired afterthought. You walk out of the beautiful gym to find no umbrellas on tables, poles where something might have been?? to an old deck area. Not inviting at all. Our room looked over the pool and I saw families trying to enjoy the space but sadly it was lackluster at best. Not clean, not inviting. For the first time ever we actually thought should we change hotels?? Especially after our first night when after a day of touring we had to call and ask if our room could be made up. I should also mention there was a star bucks in the lobby and though only open till 1PM. The girls working the spot were phenomenal. Super friendly and outgoing. Really the best customer service we received.

JW Marriott Houston - a fantastic hotel
This review is long overdue. My wife and I stayed here in May during a trip to various Texan cities, and our 5 nights at the Marriot were unquestionably the highlight. Not only is this a beautiful hotel in a great location by the Houston Galleria, it has the distinction of being - by a mile - the friendliest 'chain' hotel I have ever visited. I've stayed all over America in expensive hotels, receiving varying standards of treatment, and tended to leave feeling that I was just one of many thousands of visitors who would pass through their doors that year. The significant difference here in Houston was that without exception the staff were not just pleasant and helpful but also extremely friendly - nothing was too much trouble, and within a day of arriving I had that rare experience in the service industry of actually feeling like I was connecting with a human being and not just blandly interacting. I guess a ton of credit must go to the management team, who have not only made paramount the selection of quality people to staff their hotel, but also created an ethos of warmth and amiability. Having seen a lot of Texas over those few weeks, I was surprised to realize that I had enjoyed Houston the most by far - and the reason is this hotel. I can only hope that these standards continue, and am looking forward to visiting again next year.

Great a great locarion
JW Marriott was a very nice stay. It was directly across the street from the galleria mall. Made shopping easier since didn't have to drive u could jus walk literally across the street. I also liked the valet. It's always good to never have to park your car. You jus call an when come down stairs u are ready to roll. The hotel also had nice restaurant, bar and a starbucks. We all love Starbuck in the morning. Inside the room was stunning very very nice. I had an executive sweet. The shower was all glass..big soft bed an nice city view from window. Room was pretty darn spacious. I would definitely stay her again hands down. This hotel isn't for low ballers that are cheap. You get what u pay for. This is a hotel for peoplegal looking for 4 star or better. Great quite stay u will enjoy yourself. I came from Florida to Houston texas. I will be back.

The staff was very nice. The overall hotel experience was horrible. The view was terrible. We had no view, only of the dead bird on the roof. There were stains on the carpet. There was a lizard in our room on the last day. When I went to open the bathroom door the handle came off. I am strong but not that strong. One tug and it came off. I needed ice. There was no ice machine on my floor, that’s ok, I was told to go to the fourth floor. I went to the fourth floor and the ice machine didn’t work. I went to the front desk and was told to go to the restaurant to get some. The restaurant said they couldn’t because their ice machine didn’t work. She then called to the front desk and I was told to go to the even floors in order to get ice. My overall experience with the amenities was terrible. For the $400 plus I paid for the weekend, I was expecting more. Again the best part was the friendly staff. It is a great location for the surrounding area.
