Luxury and Stellar Service

Apex, North Carolina

The JW is truly a luxurious urban retreat in Santo Domingo. I used Marriott points for our stay and we were greeted with such hospitality. The hotel is connected to the BlueMall with all kinds of international shops and restaurants. Check-in is on the second floor and you will see a sleek counter and then this opens into the restaurant, bar and patio. The patio is clear glass on the bottom so you can look right down on the street. There is also a beautiful infinity pool and the view of the city is just spectacular. Our room was ready upon arrival and we stayed in a suite on the 19th floor. Room: The suite had a comfortable king bed, large desk, sitting area, big tv and one of the most beautiful bathrooms I have ever seen. The shower is open and the water runs right out the side and not like a traditional central drain. The bathtub over looked the city and the view was simply amazing. The beauty products are from Apothecary and I recognize the lavender line from my stay at the JW in Chicago. The room has a robe, slippers, safe, and gorgeous wooden flooring at the entrance. It felt like an apartment and the view was really the most memorable part. There is also a turn down service with local chocolate put on your pillow for suenos ricos. Lounge: The executive lounge is on the 19th floor and Lidia welcomed us and explained the happy hour and appetizer and breakfast hours. We had breakfast before we left for our day trip and it was a very nice international display with cereals, eggs, joghurt, fruit, juice, and fresh coffee and tea. Service: outstanding on every level from check-in to the lounge to room service to departure Our only issue was with the water temperature in the morning. We got up early at 5:30am to get ready to leave and the shower and tub water did not get warm or hot. It was cold even though we let it run for a long time. At night it was fine though. This hotel is truly 5 stars and you are right in the heart of the commercial area and near shopping and all the action. Service is outstanding and the room comfort is also exceptional. Thank you and we hope to be back soon!
