- a crafted total body workout that's just right for each guest.
- Organically inspired private spas/spa treatments to relax, unwind and rejuvenate
- luxury facilities that provide an ideal space for occasions such as weddings and upscale business events.
The hotel is increasingly environmentally conscious, which can provide a healthier stay for guests and employees. Marriott aims to reduce their environmental footprint in the following ways:
- Further reduce energy and water consumption 20% by 2020 (Energy 20 percent per kWh/conditioned m2;
- Further reduce water 20 percent per occupied room (POR). Baseline: 2007);
- Empower hotel development partners to build green hotels;
- Green their multi-billion dollar supply chain
- Educate and inspire associates and guests to conserve and preserve
- Address environmental challenges through innovative conservation initiatives including rainforest protection and water conservation.
JW Marriott partners with the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC) for Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED®) and the Green Building Certification Institute (GBCI to build green hotels.
JW Marriott has 106 LEED-registered hotels, and 31 LEED-certified hotels.
In 2011, they developed the first LEED Volume Program (LVP) to provide a streamlined path to certification for the hospitality industry through a green hotel prototype.
JW Marriott doesn't have many issues or complaints from guests regarding the basic high end amenities; however, there are some critiques offered, such as:
- Hotel room's front door does not seal out corridor noise, so you will hear hallway conversations.
- Some rooms have an "odd window configuration". Guests should ask the staff for a room without one. (They'll know what you mean).
- facilities are definitely good but not luxury for the price
- Small rooms
- Slow staff (in some cases)
- Minor administrative slipups, i.e. sending texts to let guest know room is ready in a timely manner
- No free Wifi without membership
Also to be noted is that promoted amenities are typical at most United States hotels but not guaranteed. Additionally, amenities will vary at International locations.
