“Everything you'd expect from the Marriott flagship brand”
Reviewed 25 January 2014 via mobile

Stayed for business and a couple of extra days for holiday. This property upholds the high standards you'd expect from the JW Marriott brand. But more than that, the staff are sincere and come across as genuinely committed to every guest's satisfaction. They greet guests with a smile, but they with each other, too.

The Concierge Desk: I was surprised to see that many of the Concierge staff are members of Les Clefs d'Or, assuring the highest calibre of service. They lived up to this standard in making dinner and tour reservations for us throughout our visit.

The desk staff were also top notch. Taking care of minor issues and following through to assure we were satisfied. The lobby bar is very nice and comfortable. Friendly bar keepers who were happy to speak English. Housekeeping was perfect.

>> Suggestions for the traveller:

1) If a beach view is critically important to you (don't LOOK at the beach, BE on the beach), note that the beach facing room windows do not open, so no ocean sounds - besides which the noisy avenue would drown the ocean out. Instead, request an atrium facing "corner" room with a small balcony. These rooms are larger than the ocean-facing rooms, with the added benefit that you can open the sliding door to better circulate the air.

2) If you have access to the concierge / executive lounge on the 9th floor, know that it conforms to the standards for JW's: a) the hot breakfasts, afternoon refreshments and evening hors d'oeuvres are vey good and varied, b) it has a Nespresso machine (woo hoo!!!), and c) in the evening, if you ask, the attendants will prepare a fantastic Caipirinha. Plenty of cold bottled beverages, of course and the view of the beach is great.

3) If your Marriott status affords eligibility for the concierge level, avail yourself of the desk service on the 9th floor for check-in and your special needs. For example, a couple of times we simply asked the attendant on 9 to setup our dinner. She/he contacted the Concierge, or the restaurant itself for us.

4). Check out the rooftop sundeck, exercise room and pool. Very comfortable, if not a bit small. We had lunch up there on our first day, and it was very good. They'll have a small barbecue going right next to the bar.

As a Marriott Lifetime Platinum, I have a well-tuned set of expectations for each brand. As JWs go, this one is among the best managed, most guest-friendly I've visited. Highly recommended.

In the heart of Copacabana Beach! Beach is across the street Atlantic Avenue. You can rent beach towels, chairs, umbrella displaying your hotel key to clerk at Copacabana beach. Concierge & guest service agents all very friendly and speak good English. This is the only Marriott brand.... JW Marriott is top of the line. Request an ocean view room when you open your curtains awesome photos of the beach.

J W MARRIOT COPACABANA, RIO DE JANEIRO BRAZIL.
Efficient, well-run and in a fabulous location. Step outside to restaurants. Directly in front of the hotel and across the street JWM has its own beach cabana where you are well looked after. Lie back and enjoy the beach scene. Breakfast was standard buffet and cooked eggs. Very clean. We had an interior room which was pleasantly air-conned and very quiet.

Room Tip: If you're weary, take an inside room - absolutely quiet. You can take in all the action outside...

There are no words that would do justice to describe the service that we received from staff at this hotel.
We have stayed at many hotels but never had service like this before.
Staff had always willingly assisted in any if our needs. They made us feel comfortable at all times.
Service and hospitality was outstanding.
So, a big thank you to ALL staff at the JW Marriot Hotel, Rio de Janeiro for making our stay an unforgettable one.
And a very special thank to Renato & Thamirys for always going beyond their call of duty to assist us and making my sisters birthday an extra special one :-)

The hotel is located right across from the beach and is definitely the place to stay in Rio. I stayed on the 12th floor in a suite and it was one of the best rooms I have ever stayed in. The hotel bar was great and the staff was friendly and helpful. You can see Christ the Redeemer from the rooftop pool which is a breathtaking sight. Great value for the money as well.

The location cant be questioned, but the rooms and general décor is very tired , food is OK rates very expensive for what you get.
the first room I was given could only be described as a cell , no natural light and room décor well below standard, good enough the reception moved me to another floor with more natural light and slight more upbeat room décor.

Room Tip: don't get a room below level three

I've had the opportunity to stay at this hotel several times for business and last month with my wife for pleasure. It has never disappointed. The staff is excellent and provides extra service by anticipating a guests needs. The property was not originally built as a Marriott hotel so it's a smaller property with smaller rooms but the location, amenities and service compensate. If room with water view available it's a plus but it's just as great to spend time on the roof where you can get a glimpse of Christo Redeemer and a panorama view of Copacabana beach and Sugar Loaf and swim in the warm hotel pool. Gym on roof is great as well as the small spa. Above all it's the staff that make this one of my top hotel picks in the world.
