    Hotel Rooms

    We used the JW Marriott as our main hotel for our guests to stay in, with our venue being just 3 blocks away at The Rice. The staff couldn't have been more helpful and accommodating to meet all of our needs for the 40 rooms that we booked.

    The JW Marriott Downtown Houston exceeded our expectations! My wife and I were told by many of our friends that something will likely go wrong during the wedding process. I can honestly say that everything went smoothly! We can't thank the staff and hotel enough. Several friends have commented that this was one of the best weddings they've attended.

    We were surrounded by a great team of professionals that included: Kristina, Alti, Gabriela, Adrienne and many others. These individuals were very flexible and accommodating to both myself as well as our guests. I think a large reason for the success had to do with planning on the front end primarily with Kristina.

    The venue in our opinion is very modern and unique. The chef did an outstanding job with the meals. I would highly recommend this venue and their staff to assist you in your big day.

    JW Marriott Houston Downtown's reply:

    Thank you for your kind words Charley! It was such a pleasure to assist you and Robin with planning your big day. We wish you all the best on your new life journey together!

    The staff was wonderful and worked very hard to make sure every detail was accounted for, which was particularly important for our surprise party thrown here! I'd recommend this venue for their professionalism and care for their clients.
