JW Marriott Marquis Miami
More than 300 rooms fill this 41-story downtown Miami tower that overlooks Biscayne Bay. Thanks to its ties to two Marriot brands—the JW and Marquis—the property is well-suited to business travelers (with afull-service work center and tried-and-true limousine service) as well as to leisure types (it is Miami, after all). Guests practice their downward-facing dog at the fitness and yoga studio, tee off at the indoor on-site golf school, or take a dip in the heated outdoor pool. The hotel’s own db Bistro Moderne from Daniel Boulud is a buzzworthy spot for French-American fare including coq au vin with pearl onions, bacon, and spaetzle. There are three uniquely decorated dining rooms, but our advice is to snag a seat on the breezy terrace to watch yachts ply the river.
