Stayed here a few times lately, very good business hotel. Friendly and efficient staff at reception and the lounge.
Rooms are nice and cozy, very nice bathroom with all the usual JW amenities. Fresh fruit platter on my room every day, complimentary newspaper in the morning too.
Executive lounge on the 12th floor is one of the nicer ones I have seen - complimentary internet included. The hotel is not cheap - but worth the money.

I spent one and a half days during business travel and was pleased with the accommodations and the staff. The breakfast buffet and the dinner at the La Brasserie were superb. One item of note is that all the hotel restaurants are closed between the hours of 3:00 and 7:00 P.M. There is a good room service menu available though. What was also nice about the stay was my group’s air fare reservations weren’t until after midnight. The hotel allowed us to pay a half day so our check out was more in line with the airport show time.

Room Tip: The best veiw is looking out the front of the hotel. Cleck out the nightly specials at the restaura...

It is a nice experience to stay a hotel like JW Marriot. You will have a great time out there.This is really a good experience during my stay there. They offered good services and the employees are very polite.

Fine for a short business trip but nothing exceptional, as many have stated a City View room will most likely get you a view of the Cemetery, so if you really do want a city view be insistent (city view is on the opposite side of the corridor).

The hotel F&B was VERY average, and a let down in my opinion for a JW Marriott, I probably ate the worst steak I have ever had at their Steak House.

Only other issue was that the room was not quite clean enough, old drink wrappers under the furniture is not acceptable for a 5 star hotel.

Stayed for a couple of nights on business. The service and room was up to the usual Marriot standards. The ambiance was slightly let down by the fact my room overloook a large graveyard. Service was good, they allowed me to check in early, they ironed a shirt for me at short notice. In the room there were a couple of issues, the internet wouldn't work and the shower control malfunctioned. Good enough for business but not quite excellent.

Room Tip: Stay at the front to avoid a view of the graveyard

I have stayed in Marriotts all over the world and the JW Marriott Kuwait is one of my worst experiences ever. First of all there is the problem that it sits adjacent to a large cemetery, both my windows looked out on to this horrific sight of desert wasteland with mounds where the graves were placed. No drains in the bathrooms, although this may sound trivial, it allows for a guest to flood the whole room and of course the hotel does not want to take the time to take all the carpet out to prevent mildew, so my room smelled like mildew. The food was also not good for a hotel of the caliber. This may be a pet peeve of mine as an American but do not call a menu item something it is not, this happened with the Philly Cheese Steak that had very little resemblance to the elixir of life one finds on the streets of Philadelphia. As a business hotel, there was no wireless, I have my iPhone, iPad and laptop and wanted to connect to all, which in most if not all hotels now has this capability, I had to plug into the wall like it was 1998. Finally, something I always say about Kuwait, stop imposing your beliefs on me! Kuwait will never, ever be a world class city like Dubai due to that fact that they do not allow alcohol or pork products. These two thing in and of themselves are not the issue, it is the fact that I am not a Muslim so I do not want their rules imposed on me. Do not go to this hotel!!

Room Tip: Ask not to be put in a room facing the graveyard.
