  • 8.0.Very Good

    Nice, but no frills hotel

    The hotel was nice. A little gloomy atmosphere in the small lobby. Parking was somewhat frustrating since it was valet and there was less than 4 car length sidewalk room to drive in before they take your car. I can't imagine what nightmare it must be to have to drive up behind multiple cars for an event. It took us about 20 minutes to get our car driven up out of parking lot on a quiet Saturday morning. The spa was nice, nothing fancy. Overall the hotel's location is it's selling point in the heart of Downtown Houston.

    Not a vacation hotel

    I’m disappointed in this JW Marriott. We were looking forward to a cool/nice hotel for a couple nights while visiting family in Houston. We are Marriott Bonvoy members and have never had issues with Marriott. Best option to park was valet, it was cheapest option at around $40 a night, and it was a huge hassle. Long waits both coming and going. The lobby is kinda boring but clean. Staff was ‘ok’, not rude but not as welcoming as others. Our room had empty potato chip bags and what looked like m&ms in the closet. No place to buy sundries (for Diet Coke I had to go to bar). We will not stay there again.

    A five-star hotel with a three-star restaurant

    My rating of 10 is for the hotel only (notes on the restaurant at the end). It was FABULOUS. My room (I upgraded to the Superior) was exactly as pictured and was closer to what I would expect in a 5-star hotel. It was large, comfortable, and quiet. The hotel staff members were warm and professional, and I was very impressed that most of the amenities were available, given the pandemic and the recent weather conditions in Texas. That said, the restaurant (Main Kitchen) was a bit disappointing. The food was OKAY but not at all on par with the other 5-star elements of the hotel. During my breakfast on Sunday, it was clear that the restaurant staff was inexperienced and too small. Service was slow and not up to par (wrong orders, long waits for beverages, missing silverware, etc). Honestly, it seems like they didn't realize that the restaurant was going to be as busy as it was. This is probably a good problem to have right now. I hope they are able to better prepare as business picks up again!

    Great stay, Great Staff.

    Upon arrival, we were greeted by the doormen. You can see their smiles from under their face masks. The front desk accommodated us quickly. Check in was a breeze. They really made us feel like family. My stay was SAFE, clean, and wonderful. The food & drinks are amazing at 806 lounge & the Room service was quick and tasty. Thank you.

    The quality you would expect at a JW Marriott!

    What you would expect from a JW. The staff was friendly and efficient, the room was clean and sufficient, and the lobby was pleasant. Parking was a bit tricky, and I found it cheaper to park in the garage around the corner. The valet is open, but a bit pricy. But no complaints, had a very nice stay!

    Great hotel and friendly staff. Got upgraded which was amazing. But the pillows were a little too soft for my liking. Doesnt change the fact that the hotel was amazing and in a great location.
