Hello all, I currently have reservations at the JW Marriott Rio de Janeiro for whole week in October - 5 nights using points, rest cash (~$350/night).
I am a gold elite member. I have read VERY mixed reviews for this hotel. Many are saying it does not measure to the JW standards - the name and price are only because of location, so I am torn. It is mostly a points visit, and I am hoping for a very positive experience.
Does anyone have experience at this hotel? And if you are a gold elite member, was this valued? I believe being a gold should allow me access to the Griffin Club (ie. their concierge lounge) and free internet (surprisingly there usually is a fee). Can I expect a room upgrade?
Many thanks for your help.
