Review – JW Marriott Hong Kong

A family wedding gave me the opportunity to travel to the cosmopolitan hub of Hong Kong and JW Marriott was my home for 9 days. I travelled solo for the first few days until my family joined me for the wedding celebrations.

Location

JW Marriott is located in Pacific Place on 88 Queensway, on Hong Kong Island. I was absolutely amazed when my driver informed that my hotel is connected to Pacific Place, one of the biggest shopping malls in Hong Kong along with Conrad and Island Shangri-La.

They say that the best view of the Harbour is looking in from Kowoon side to Hong Kong island. However, it was a great feeling to stay at JW Marriott amidst the skyscrapers and wonder that people would be admiring my hotel from the other side of the harbour.

The lower basement of the hotel connects to Admirality Station through Pacific Place. This makes it very convenient to hop onto an MTR and explore the city. The bus stop and Star Ferry terminal are within easy access.

Rooms

The check-in was smooth and I was given a room facing Conrad and Pacfic Place on the 24th floor. The front desk staff was very polite and informed me about the various amenities that I could use during my stay.

The rooms are well appointed with pretty much everything you expect from a five star property. The room size is just enough and the bathroom has a bathtub, hair dryer and all the toiletries that you could ask for.

Facilities

I was quite impressed with the facilities at JW Marriott, Hong Kong. They have a dedicated gymnasium with cardiovascular equipments and free weights. The swimming pool on the 7th floor was a definite highlight.

You’ll be spoilt for choice with dining options within the hotel. Each morning, I’d wake up and look forward to the buffet breakfast included with my package. This was the only proper meal I had each day in Hong Kong because food outside was too expensive and not many options for vegetarians. The amazing spread at breakfast included a variety of Asian and continental dishes including fresh juices, brilliant coffee, selection of breads and muffins, salads, fruits, dry fruits, muesli and dim sum. I loved their French Toast with maple syrup.

Service

The staff were very attentive and their customer service was the best I’ve experienced from a hotel for a very long time. The queen size bed in the room would be inadequate for three adults, so they arranged for a single mattress.

A special mention to the Concierge desk who helped me navigate around the city. I’d reach out to them for directions, MTR stations, bus numbers and they were always happy to assist.

Overall, I really enjoyed my stay at JW Marriott, Hong Kong. I’d highly recommend this property if you wish to stay in a five star hotel on Hong Kong Island.
