“Great hotel, decent location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 June 2014

Stayed here for several nights as part of a longer Eastern European vacation. No doubt it's one of the premier hotels in Bucharest (second only to Raddison Blu, I'm told), and it shows like a five-star property. Rooms were a good Marriott quality and service is exceptional…if you tip. It's expected as you go and service will drop dramatically if staff doesn't receive their share. Took a day to figure that out and then things went exceptionally well. Worth mentioning I was on a free (rewards) stay so I can't offer an unbiased review of value.

Of special note is the executive lounge. Those with access will find one of the better lounges with access to plenty of good choices for meals, happy hours, etc.

Pool was a little too crowded to use, but looks quite nice. We may have just hit it at a busy time. Didn't try the restaurants as we prefer to eat out in town. Raddison may have better location if you're a tourist, but this is definitely worth a stay if you're considering it for business or otherwise.

Room Tip: go for the grand executive room

Last month, on a holiday in eastern Europe, I had opportunity to stay at JW Mariott Grand Hotel Bucharest. This hotel has great location (very close to parliament), impressive facade and equally well appointed rooms. A spacious restaurant is on first floor and having breakfast from well spread out menu was a very plesant experience. Only strange thing I noticed about this hotel (which I did not in other counties of East Europe) was that they take a Credit Card or cash security while checking in, even if you are member of a group and group booking has been arranged by a tour operator! Of course, this lien on credit card is removed when you check out. I have stayed in many hotels in Europe but this was a first and only experience of this kind. I was told that this is a standard practice in Romania (Is it?). Overall, it was a pleasant stay at the hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that overlooks the frontage of the hotel. You will see a big square.

The JW Marriott hotel in Bucharest is an iconic building that stands out in the middle of the town, very close to the Parliament Palace.

The grandeur begins right at the porch, which leads you into the main lobby - that speaks the same language. The white neatness of the huge open spaces makes you feel that you have entered a palace.

The rooms are great with the old world luxury of size and comfortably appointed with amenities. the restaurants are fantastic, especially the Italian joint.

The hospitality extended by the reception staff was world class and they went out of their way to get many smiles on my face. :) :)

In my opinion, this is the best hotel to stay in Bucharest.

The hotel is located directly behind the world's second largest office building (US Pentagon first) -- The Peoples House, aka Parliament. It is about a twenty minute walk to the visitor entrance. Prior reservations are required which can be arrange by the hotel concierge. It is another 15 to 20 minute walk to the pickup point for the Hop On Hop Off bus. The service level at the JW is as expected JW level. The Executive Lounge offers a wide array of hot and cold foods with excellent service

Been there on June 2014 on a Bachelor party with a few friends. The food was amazing, the rooms were clean and quite big, friendly crew, nice casino and the indoor pool was clean nice and not crowded (not that big though). Ate one the best steaks on the restaurant on the second floor above the lobby.

When you enter this hotel, you will be awed. The hotel itself is enormous! I stayed on one of the executive floors, and had a wonderful room with a sitting area and a great view of the Parliament Place. There are a lot of designer stores on the main level (AKA very pricey). There are several restaurants, all of which have different types of food. All are adequate, if not a bit overpriced.
There is an attached spa/gym, which is quite popular. An afternoon of pampering is definitely something to pursue here (the stafff is wonderful!)
The hotel location is probably it's only downside. If you are visiting the Parliament Palace (or attending a conference there), the location is great. But, if you are more interested in seeing the old town and the museums, you will have a minimum 20 minute walk (to the southernmost part of the old town). On the upside, you have to circumvent the Parliament Palace to get there, so you get a good view of that building from all angles. There is also a nice park parallel to the Parliament Palace where you can rest and watch the children/dogs play! Get out the walking shoes!

Room Tip: If you can get a room facing the Parliament Palace, it is worth the effort.
