"Back again, still a bit off"
I was back at this hotel again. And like last time, while overall nice, things are just not as usual for a JW Marriott. The lounge was OK, but not that great. The lobby bartenders, Yousef and Alberto, are FABULOUS. I will leave it up to you to decide which one makes the better caipirinha. They are both good. At breakfast every morning, there was not enough staff, so it was difficult to get refills of coffee. They should either put more people on the floor, or make the coffee self serve. The spa and staff were again wonderful.
"Rio´s Copacabana from 19th floor"
Rio is a fascinating city. People, weather, nature and obviously the beaches. Marriott is there, right at Copacabana beach (though I prefer less touristy Ipanema) right in the middle of the big bay. The hotel has a rooftop pool and lounge which allows you spectacular views all the way from SugarLoaf to DosIramaos. There are rooms that will face the beach, others inward looking including some with balconies. Breakfast is a low in this hotel. Brasil is full of fruits and great food but for reasons I don´t understand the breakfast here is nice but basic. And be ready to wait if you ask for decaf. But for me it was ok, nothing major to complain, just curious to see this compared to other JW elsewhere. Overall great stay and fantastic view. Was upgraded to ocean view at floor 18th so it was almost heaven.
"Nicely done !!"
Very nice Hotel with lots of amenities and a very friendly staff. My colleagues and I stayed here for two weeks while working in Rio and we will definitely come back to this hotel next time we are in town. The rooftop lounge was our favorite spot for beers and some delicious food (french dip with the homemade aioli is out of this world) the service from the rooftop kitchen and bar was also outstanding. At the lobby the concierge Carmen and her colleague were always very attentive and helpful, they recommended a few restaurants that were very good ( Casa de Feijoada was the best ). I have to say that the service at the lobby bar was not always to our satisfaction, the food always took long and there is no restaurant inside the hotel so if it's late at night and you are hungry the only option is room service but they do bring you the food to the bar. Ribeiro and his coworkers at the breakfast buffet really go over and beyond to give you the best service possible, the chef and hostess are also great, excellent service !!!!
"GREAT HOTEL AND EXCELLENT LOCATION"
I have stayed in many hotels along Avenida Atlantica but J.W. Marriott offers friendly service, good food and a great location at a great price. The rooms may be rather small but the quality of the amenities and the room service made a difference in my stay. If you book a room make sure it is one with a view of Copacabana beach. In the morning hours you can see the most glorious sunrise over the Atlantic.
