Choosing A Room At The JW Marriott Venice


Following on from my review of the luxury JW Marriott Venice, I thought I would write a piece specifically helping my readers to choose the best room in the hotel.

Firstly, if possible, request a room with a balcony or a terrace. Most Junior Suites, (although not all), have them, but many of the base rooms don’t. Honestly, my stay wouldn’t have been complete without an expanse of outdoors all to myself.

The room itself, (ours was a Junior Suite), was immaculate. The decor was in white with oatmeal tones and modern in design with double sliding doors into a large bathroom, home to a well-designed sink area which is perfect to lay out my toiletries. A decent size free-standing bath sat in the center of the room with a rainforest shower and toilet cubicle to one side – the finishing touch is Roberto Cavalli toiletries.

Our Junior Suite was lovely and so quiet at night. My only criticism is that it didn’t feel like you in Venice. If you are looking for a hotel oozing character with quirky charismatic rooms then this isn’t it. If you are looking for a high-end, well-appointed room you’ll be very hard-pressed at this price point to make a better choice.

For the last night, we decided to upgrade to a “La Residenza Pool De Luxe room” with its own private pool. The room was as lovely but slightly smaller than the Junior Suite and darker than the rooms in the main building, being designed with a single glazed double door rather than the Suite’s large balcony windows.

The La Residenza Pool De Luxe room we stayed in was uniquely created in a box construction, somewhat like a pod, inside an old barn building. The room, like the Junior Suite, was fresh, modern and wonderfully clean. The large bathroom contained all the modern fixtures and fitting you could desire, sharing the design of the Suite and using a free-standing bath as its focal point.

The room’s doors double doors open out onto the star attraction – your own private pool, which sports a decked area with loungers, table and chairs, and a mini lawn where you can sit and enjoy your very own private view onto Venice. The pool itself was large enough for a lovely splash, complete with spa bubbles. Such fun and honestly as good as it looks in the pictures!
