World's First JW Marriott Marquis Opens in Miami

By: Kara Chalmers


An extraordinary hotel property has recently opened in downtown Miami – the world’s first JW Marriott Marquis. And directly above it, the Hotel Beaux Arts Miami is scheduled to open later this month.

Interestingly, the Hotel Beaux Arts Miami is on the 38th, 39th and 40th floors of the 41-story JW Marriott Marquis Miami tower.

Another interesting note: the luxury hotels share a huge sports and entertainment complex housing the full-service Rik Rak Salon & Spa, an NBA-approved basketball court, a tennis court, a Jim McLean Golf School, a virtual bowling alley, a billiard room, a 3D media room, an outdoor pool and a Met 2 Fitness state-of-the-art fitness center.

According to the Marriott, the “Marquis” in this hotel's name signifies the ultimate in comfort, technology, personal service and amenities (think luxury bedding, in-room computers, a pillow menu). The 313-room sleek and modern hotel, which opened Oct. 25, is home to the largest ballroom in downtown Miami and to db Bistro Moderne, a French-American restaurant by Chef Daniel Boulud, winner of three James Beard Foundation awards. Nightly rates here start at $349.

The Hotel Beaux Arts Miami will offer guests an even higher level of luxury, as well as exclusivity and privacy. Its ultra-personalized services include an exclusive lounge, private check-in and a personal concierge. Its 44 guest rooms are filled with art and they feature Brazilian cherry dark hard wood floors; touch-controlled, illuminated bathroom faucets; iPads; and a luxury bedding and pillow menu. It's also the first hotel in Florida to be entirely outfitted with Bang & Olufsen in-room entertainment systems.

And of course, being so high up, the rooms offer amazing views of the city and/or the bay. The hotel is scheduled to open in mid-November, with rates starting at $400 per night.
