Copacabana beach

Posted Oct 13, 2017
Pros: Close to the beach, and easy access to tours and activities
Cons: Drinks and food in the hotel were very pricey
Location: Hotel had some space on the Copacabana beach, and we spent a couple of days there; it was nice to have an attendant there to set up chairs /umbrellas
Enjoyed our stay at the Marriott. We hadn't booked a room that had included breakfast and wifi, but those benefits were added to our reservation for a reasonable cost. The room was basic but had everything that we needed. The staff were accomodating and fluent in English. We enjoyed tours to the Corcovado and Sugar Loaf mountain, as well as the botanical gardens and Tijuca National Park.

Not what you expect from a JW Mariott

Posted May 27, 2017
It's more like a Holiday Inn style. For sure not a 5 hotel and too expensive for what it is. I won't be staying there again. Stayed 1 night and checked to another which was great. I know that the standard of hotels in Brazil are not great but this one was not acceptable from checkin all the way to the room

CANNOT BE TRUSTED

Posted Apr 18, 2017
Pros: That famous does not equate to honest.
Cons: My stay at this hotel.
More than $1,500 was taken from my room by unknown individuals. This ruined a vacation that was six months in the planning. I stayed at the Marriott based on its stellar reputation. Do not be fooled like me. After I reported the theft, they were unable or did not want to give me a copy of the report. Then, they would NOT give me any statement verifying that a theft had been reported.

Dear Robert, We have thoroughly investigated the matter, but our efforts have not uncovered any evidence indicating the cause of your loss. I realize that you are far more interested in a recovery than in an explanation or an apology, however please rest assured that our property and brand is thoroughly compromised in our guests safety at all times. We have enjoyed your patronage in the past, and we hope to serve you again in the future. Thank you again for bringing this matter to my attention, and if you have any questions with regard to the matter, please do not hesitate to contact me.

You really need to verify before booking

Posted Apr 4, 2017 on Hotels
We booed a junior suite but the service is definitely not a 5-star. Hotel's room arrangements are such that it would be extremely difficult if you want an ocean-view suite. The stay was a disappointment; staff did not show sincerity nor care.

Dear Jeffrey, We know about the high expectations our guests has on the JW Marriott properties and we are very sorry we didn't reach yours. As we are in the heart of the Copacabana Beach, our ocean views rooms are highly demanded, so we recommend to our guests to be sure to choose the ocean view during the booking, in order to guarantee this type of room. Hopefully, you can come back soon to enjoy the real JW Marriott Rio de Janeiro experience. Sincerely, Mariela Mendonza Front Office Manager

Would Definitely Stay Again

Posted Feb 21, 2017 on Hotels
Great hotel! The staff was friendly and resourceful, and even though we didn't go with the beach view room we could still see it from the room. Only small complaint is the little amount of moisture in the room which caused the sheets to feel slightly damp. However, would definitely recommend this hotel!
