Room Quite Old but Everything Else is Good
4.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 6 Feb 2024
The arrival experience is very good with helpful staff to help with the luggage and fast check in with excellent member recognition by the front dest staff

The room size itself is quite large but the design is already quite old by today standard and many part in the bathroom already have some problem like shower water that are not heated properly and water leaking from the shower. But the bed is comfortable and big enough.

The best thing from this hotel is the breakfast experience with very large choice of buffet and also the seating area is big so it is easy to find seat during the breakfast

Overall it is a decent hotel to choose in Medan.

Stayed here for a couple of nights on a business trip. Must express that the staff could not have been better or more helpful. They are however operating in a hotel that is past it's prime and badly in need of a revamp. I think the JW Marriott is suffering from a lack of good competition and resting on its laurels somewhat. The service is spectacularly good but the hardware is in need of an overhaul. The first room I was in had noisy air conditioning which I reported immediately and was apparently attended to. The fix lasted until the following morning when the problem recurred. I was moved room (to a same level room) which did not have the same issue. Should be checked and resolved however before a guest checks in. Rooms are massive and well appointed if old. For example the desk chair had seen better days and the style was dated from 20 years ago. The lounge is massive and has significant potential with great views of the City but again very very old fashioned. To balance the hardware staff were fantastic. Personalised service, use of name. I wanted to move tables at breakfast to somewhere with a bit cooler and they moved me into a private room. Really they do their utmost to ensure their customers are satisfied. Location is perfect right opposite a brand new mall too. Would I stay here again? Yes for sure because of the location and the staff.

A 5 star hotel in a city sorely lacking for other great accomodations. While the rooms may seem a tad dated, the comfort and service is outstanding here. I wanted for nothing. The bars and restaurants are top notch and reasonably priced for someone from the west. In the heart of the city. I really enjoyed the property, and the outstanding buffet and the quality drinks that can be had.

Room tip: Executive lounge is nice, and comes with the buffet breakfast downstairs included, so I think it's a definite upsell in this property.

We have been staying in this hotel whenever we visited Medan. Met Ilhan twice. During the morning breakfast he has been very helpful and provided good service. Agus who helped to check in has given us upgrade to big room at high floor. Will be back soon.

This is a big hotel located in the city center very close to a big shopping mall with lots of shops and eateries. We stayed in a large corner room which was spotless clean. The pool area is a bit dull with old furniture. The breakfast was very good with lots of choises. The best part of the hotel is the staff, so kind and helpful.

I am a regular customer at this hotel, twice monthly. Have seen a real improvement in the hotel since it has come under new management. The staff are a lot more attentive and friendly.
Breakfast has also improved.
