High Five — JW Marriott Hotel Is the Only Way to Do Hong Kong


In the hotel world, world-class service and luxurious accommodations are the bread and butter of any establishment worth their five-star salt.

While JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong does not stand as tall as some of its competitors, its appealing list of features make it a perennial favourite among the Hong Kong elite and well-heeled jet set — prime location in the central business district, well-appointed suites, unparalleled service from check-in to check-out, variety of in-house multi-award winning restaurants, and an unmatched view of the Hong Kong skyline.

This Admiralty district gem turns 30 this year, and here is a rundown of reasons on why guests keep returning.

Prime Position

Located in the eastern extension of the CBD, JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong allows guests to get right into the heart of its surroundings’ bustling activities. Whether one is looking to kick back and dial for room service or head out for some adventure (the hotel offers planned trips to Ocean Park or traditional spots such as Wong Tai Sin temple or Kowloon Walled City Park), there is never a dull day during your stay here; the only limit is your imagination.

First-Class Chambers

A retreat back to a superior suite after a day of adventure is the way to go, and the Admiralty Suite sets a high bar, literally. The suite affords a panoramic view of the Victoria Harbour that is best enjoyed with complimentary food and beverage provided throughout the day.

The proverbial cherry on top of staying in the suite is the privileged access to the Executive Lounge launched this March. The lounge is furnished with dark patina flooring and exposed brick with black steel on polished shelving – a modern gentleman’s playhouse for one to recharge over hors d’oeuvres. 

Continental Cuisine

For those who want nothing but wining and dining through their five-star vacation, JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong gathers gastronomical delights from all over the world under its roof.

Early risers should make a beeline for the JW Café, where 11 show kitchens whip up an international selection of dishes that are both available off its buffet and à la carte menu. Otherwise, opt to indulge in alfresco dining at one of Hong Kong’s best-kept secrets – the Fish Bar. Signature dishes include the Chilled Seafood Tower for four and tipples like the Flying Fish made with Myer’s dark rum, coconut-flavoured Malibu, fresh lime juice, and pineapple juice.

Lighter appetites can also be satiated at the Pool Lounge with bar snacks and tea selections from its premium reserved collection such as the Fragrant Iron Buddha or the Water Lily Flower Tea.
