I have to agree with basically everything "Rob N." said in his review; he's right.
The Gadgetry in the room didn't impress me at all, though I know it will others.
It was sort of infuriating, actually.
I SO much preferred the 'regular' rooms at the jw Marriott Marquis on the other floors: choose those.

I read Rob N's review before going to the Beaux Arts with my wife for a special occasion and felt it necessary to write this review after the fact, to give my different impression.
First, I missed the opening explanation by the steward/bellhop of how the electronic systems work, but even though I'm not a computer geek and don't write code or design networks, I found everything intuitive and could figure it out pretty quickly.
What I enjoyed best was being able to stream my own music from my iPhone directly into the system; the same with movies; and it has great sound.
You have to like design and style to appreciate the room. It is functional, but if you want what is merely functional, stay at an ordinary Marriott. (I've stayed in many, many Marriotts.) Design is not utilitarian. My wife loves design, and so we had a great time looking at and sizing up the various design elements of the room and hotel. Look, it's interesting what they attempted, even if you might have found something else more functional.
My wife is sensitive to cold. She loved the duvet. I was okay with the temperature at 74 degrees in the room.
The views were breathtaking and stunning. We liked the intimacy and boutique feel of a small hotel, even though it's in a soaring skyscraper. That's a pretty neat combination--it has a certain kind of glamour and trendiness, but at the same time it's understated, low-key, and even a bit home-like in its feel.
We were there to celebrate an anniversary. The work space would have been fine for me, but if you are a business traveler or simply looking for a room to spend the night, look someplace else. But if you want to stay somewhere really special and memorable -- without breaking the bank--this hotel is that place.
(One small complaint: I roast my own coffee and make fine espresso drinks at home, so I appreciated the Francis Francis machine in the room. However, it makes only espresso -- for a morning cup, I like a milk-based espresso drink.)

Luxury has evolved!
Hotel Beaux Arts miami should be in the dictionary next to luxury, modern, classy, state-of-the-art and AWESOME.
The Beaux Arts is a luxury boutique hotel located on the 38th, 39th and 40th floor of the JW Marriott Marquis hotel in Downtown Miami and is a centerpiece for sophistication, technology and contemporary design. I recieved VIP service from the time I left my keys with valet to the time valet returned my car opened the door for me to get in and said, "thank you for staying with us."
Upon arrival were had a Beaux Arts bellman waiting for us in the lobby of the JW Marriott Marquis. He escorted us up to the private check-in front desk of the Beaux Arts Hotel on the 38th floor which was quick, painless and very welcoming. The suited bellman then escorted us to our room.... he opened the door and jazz music was playing an amenity of wine and chocolate had been awaiting our arrival. The bellman then explained the in-room entertainment features of remote controlled video and sound systems, our huge LCD tv, cordless phones, home theater stereo, iPod station and of course the fully equipped iPad. The iPad had access to hotel services from ordering room service, scheduling spa times, calling valet to get our call, restaurant hours and MORE! The bathrooms were equipped with TV's in the mirrors and hot tub!! The in-room technology enhanced my guest experience more than any other hotel I had visited.
The rooms left me in awe with its technology and majestic views of Biscayne Bay, Downtown Miami and Miami Beach.
Not only the rooms were SPECTACULAR, but the lifestyle and entertainment complex within the hotel were "WOW"! Amazing gym with EVERYTHING and a kick-butt view! A huge NBA approved basketball arena which can apparently be turned into a full-sized tennis court, virtual bowling, Spa and more...It is quite overwhelming all of the things you can experience at this hotel! We rented out the basketball court for a couple of hours and all I can say is "wow"! We had a basketball attendant who brought water and towels and catered to all of our needs while on the court.
This was truly REMARKABLE HOTEL AND STAY!!

Really, Marriott? Really?
The JW Marriott Marquis is a very nice hotel. Spacious rooms, excellent amenities, good service. Just right. The Beaux Arts tries to be MORE, and fails. The Hotel Beaux Arts is an exercise in style over substance, of form over function.
It took me 15 minutes to figure out how to set the alarm clock. Mind you, I design complex computing environments for a living, write code, and understand the internals of several networking protocols. Sure, it's neat looking, but it's five times more complex than anyone needs.
The bathroom was maddening. The electronic faucets in the vanity sinks sure look neat with their LEDs and chrome. But, they're useless. Water comes out at a dribble. They shut off automatically after a minute or so to be "eco-friendly" or something, but since the water flows so stingily, you go through three shutoff cycles before you even start to get hot water. The shower is big enough for half a dozen people to stand in, more if you really want to get cozy, and the shower selector didn't work well. This is "luxury" as defined by the oooo-look-shiny crowd.
Does the toilet really need a glass door partitioning it off from the rest of the room? It offers no privacy from someone else in the bathroom since it's just clear glass. Either make it functional by frosting it, or get rid of it so I don't go plowing into it in the middle of the night while stumbling to take a leak in the dark. I'd say the bathroom could comfortably be 30-40% smaller and give the extra floor space to the rest of the room.
The sinks are ridiculous, with no way to hold water - there's no drain plunger. A sink that doesn't hold water and hot water that emerges at a trickle... shaving in the morning is bloody frustrating. God forbid you drop anything in the sink, either. Because of the way it's designed, it falls under a lip and then toward the drain, and you need to grope blindly to retrieve it. These are fancy public lavatory sinks, not bathroom sinks, and they aggravated the hell outta me.
Please find whatever design school drop-out that put that bathroom together and beat them senseless.
Another thing - a bunch of down coverlets + Miami = OMFG I'M MELTING! I had to run the A/C at 65 to get any sleep without stewing in my own juices. How 'bout just some nice high-thread-count flannel sheets and call it a night? It's Biscayne Bay, not a Swiss chalet.
If you're a business traveler, and they offer you an "upgrade" from the JW to the Beaux Arts, say "no thank you." The regular hotel rooms are better laid out, with more functional bathroom facilities, better desk/work areas, and less overall silliness. If you're the sort who's easily impressed by some laminate wood flooring, brushed metal, and blinky-lights, it might be the place for you if you're willing to pay the $100 a night premium.
The *only* thing I actually liked was the stereo - it was nice to wake up and have coffee with the local classical station playing through a decent set of speakers. Didn't make up for the fact that the nearest electrical outlet to the nightstand was halfway across the room and the workdesk a total afterthought as far as usable space.
Yes, it's got a great view. Sure, you get a concierge to toady to you. Yes, there's a precious little lounge with complimentary breakfast and beverages. Still, the Beaux Arts is like the extra layer of frosting on an already tasty cake: unnecessary, overbearing, and ultimately unsatisfying.

Rooms are gorgeous, views are nice, breakfast and bar area are cool, but the best thing about this hotel is the wonderful, caring, attentive, warm, patient, top notch staff who makes sure that your stay is well worth the money you pay for this place.

As a Marriott Rewards Platinum member, I have stayed in dozens of Marriott properties. This is far and away my new favorite. The hotel itself is described as a "hotel within a hotel". That is to say, the top two floors of the JW Marriott Marquis have been converted into high-end, luxury rooms and suites.
After dropping your car off at valet (this is the only option, $36 daily), you enter the impressive lobby and are met by a Marriott employee who asks which property you're checking into this visit. If you tell them it's the Beaux Arts, you are escorted to a private check-in lounge on the 39th floor where you are met by 2-3 BA employees, one of which begins the check-in process while the other arranges for a welcome drink (we were offered beer, wine, or a cocktail...we chose bottled water).
After a record-fast check-in time, you are escorted to your room and given a "room orientation" to acquaint yourself with the "comfort, convenience, and technological features of your suite". As Platinum members, we were upgraded to one of the magnificent corner suites and received a bottle of wine and cheese plate as a welcome amenity. The room orientation takes 5-7 minutes and is helpful given the unique features of this hotel suite.
The suite itself consisted of an entrance hallway with powder room, a giant living area with wet bar, 55" tv, a white leather sectional, and floor-to-ceiling windows (complete with motorized, remote control sheers and blackout shades).Through the sliding glass door, is the master suite: again with large tv, surround sound speakers, and floor-to-ceiling windows. Then there's the bathroom. Two large closets with slippers, robes, and the usual spa items (umbrella, iron, etc.), a glass-enclosed water closet and gigantic stand-up shower (big enough for two, at least). The bathroom is dominated by a mirrored double vanity with LED faucets and a tv inset in the mirror. There is also a sunken tub with hydrotherapy jets and top-notch bath products.
You communicate with staff via an iPad to request things like in-room dining, turndown service, and valet. Every touch in the room seemed to be well-thought and purposeful. It felt more like a high-end bachelor apartment than a hotel suite.
We will be staying at the Beaux Arts exclusively on future trips to the Miami area.

This hotel is everything. Its located at the first 3 floors (38, 39, 40) of the JW Marriott Marquis in downtown Miami right across the street from The Epic hotel My boyfriend and I stayed here over the weekend for the 4th of July.
First things first, lets talk about the staff. The hospitality was pristine. The staff were so attentive to us, even when we were checking in, we felt like we were royalty. They greeted us with champagne and made us feel like we were the only one staying there! Hah. They had a concierge whose job it was to show us how to work all of the electronics in the room. He was so attentive and helpful.
Ok, lets talk about the room. Holy amaze. We had an ocean view room which had the most beautiful view. Everything in the room was modern, sophisticated and clean from the bedding to the sinks! The bathroom even had a separate glass door for the toilet which of course had a modern sleek phone located inside, like Vegas! Hah. Everything in the room is controlled with one universal remote and an iPad. The flat screen TV is capable of being moved on a swivel by the remote. Blinds are by remote as well. Its very similar to Vegas just extremely modern and sophisticated and in Miami! :)
We had the option of watching fireworks from our room as we had the ocean view, we chose to cab it to South Beach instead though. :)
The next day, we had the complimentary breakfast which was absolutely delicious and nothing short of 5 stars and yummy. I honestly don't think we could of paid for a better breakfast. I know the restaurants in the area as I've been bi-coastal to Miami for the past 3 years. The breakfast featured: smoked salmon, quail eggs, apple wood bacon, mimosas, sausages, freshly sliced fruit, Greek yogurt and Fiji waters. All complimentary. Yes. Yes please. More please. Yes it was my own little fine dining breakfast buffet. )=)
Okay and so when we were checking out, we asked the front desk if they could possibly extend our check out as we woke up late. Duh it was a holiday. With out hesitation they extended our check out to 2pm free of charge. Now I stay at lots of hotels and you're honestly lucky if you get an hour extra. They usually don't go over that. That was pretty sweet & we were able to squeeze in some pool time! :)
Since this hotel is located at the JW Marriott it shares all of the same amenities of the Marriott that include: 3D movie theater, full size basketball court, virtual bowling, virtual golf!
Also, I forgot to mention the Beaux Arts has a little lounge area with a full service bar and gorgeous view on the 39th floor by the breakfast lounge. We probably didn't even need to go to SoBe & could of just hung out there in our own private lounge. Lol. It really feels like a modern boutique hotel. 5 stars. A plus. Recommend this to couples and anyone else who appreciates a savvy sexy modern place to stay. :)

Stayed there one night. The bay view was amazing! The room was quiet and peaceful. The rooms are on the 2 highest floors. The complimentary breakfast was delicious. The employees were very professional and respectful. There's an iPad in the room where services, internet, directions around town, etc. can be places and done. Overall, it quite an upper class and, definitely, 5-star experience!

Wow!!! I'm not rich. But if I was and I was visiting Miami I would stay here every time!! (Well unless I was expecting to stay on South Beach a whole lot). Anyway, this hotel occupies the top 3 or 4 floors of the JW Marriott downtown. My room had a stunning view of Biscayne Bay with floor to ceiling windows. The hotel room is so technological. Everything from closing and opening curtains, to ordering room service can be done at the touch of a button.
There's complimentary breakfast for you while you stay there. And a complimentary drink upon check in. The lounge area is very chic.
There is a full, NBA style basketball court on the 19th floor (although it was being used for a banquet at the time. Stupid Yale alumni.) The pool is also on this floor and the fitness center, which has everything needed for an effective workout, is located on the 20th floor.
The Hotel Beaux Art staff is what I am going to remember most. They were incredibly accommodating. I don't want to spoil anything for anyone else planning to visit, but it was my birthday and they did something very nice for me.
The 5 star star rating is very deserved. This place was great.

From now until the end of time, every hotel will be simply a room compared to this. It was that fantastic.
I shelled out about a third of my marriott rewards points for this stay and I can honestly say it was the best spent rewards points ever. The hotel is the top three floors of the JW Marquis hotel and is accessible by key card only. The rooms feature marble floored bathrooms with jacuzzi tub and rain shower. I was (happily) upgraded to a suite including a livingroom with a view of the entire biscayne Bay Area. Automatic opening curtains and an iPad are two of the coolest features of the room. From the iPad you can order services, towels, ask about dining and activities, order a taxi or your valet parked car, access the internet, and learn more about the local area.
The bed was amazingly comfortable. The lounge featured free soft drinks and water which was a fantastic perk. Breakfast was in the lounge at the completely amazing hours between 6 and 11 so you can sleep in and still be well fed! While each day has a different hot option, they always include breakfast meats (hot and cold cuts), pastries and bread, cereal, juice, coffee, fresh fruit, and mimosa's. The staff is super helpful to keep you stocked and are quick to accommodate any request. The lounge itself is set up to relax in and is equipt with flat screen TV's, couch areas, and a bar. The front desk staff was always available to answer any and all questions. They helped me plan transportation to and from various attractions with cost estimates as well as recommendations.
If I could have it my way, I would have unpacked and lived in my penthouse suite for the rest of my life. Or maybe just until I got my bedtime cookies delivered (every night by housekeeping!). Everything down to the finest detail was exquisite. I stay in a lot of hotels, and I will have to be pretty impressed to come across anything this nice after this experience. Completely worth the rewards points and I really hope to stay here again!!!

This place is pretty awesome. This has been one of the best hotel experience that I have had. It helped to kick off our forth coming week of cruising.
The Hotel Beaux Arts is special section of the JW Marriott in downtown Miami. They encompass the upper floors of the Marriott building (38th, 39th, and 40th floors). However, you also get to use all of the standard facilities of the Marriott.
19th floor Full Basketball court, pro shop, and pool/hottub
20th Fitness Center (This is one the best hotel fitness centers I have seen or used)
Our stay started with our greeting and meeting with the concierge. They were very helpful and offered us our choice of drink. After the brief checking process we were escorted to our room and shown how to use inroom IPAD and Entertainment center.
We stayed in the Rooms facing the pool (away from the bay) and were thoroughly pleased. The rooms were clean, spacious, and offered great views. The entertainment center used high end equipment (I enjoy tech gadget like while others may find it frustrating). The king sized bed was one of the most relaxing bed that I have slept on.
The bathroom was impressive as well.
Full Jacuzzi Tub with necessary bath accessories (salts, brushes, etc.)
Separate Rain Shower
Large Waterfall sinks
Built-in TV to the mirror
Ordering Room service or ice is made easy with the use of the ipad. There is a built in app, in which you can place all order to the concierge.
The buffet style breakfast is served on the 39th floor. The selection is premium, covering almost all of the bases.
The cab ride from the marriott to the cruise port was quick, however make sure you get a good price on the ride. The Marriott concierge held us a cab. The ride cost us $25 and we think were were taken on that. As leaving from the port to a further location only cost us $12.

Great hotel! Very modern, high-end and classy. Central location.
Complimentary breakfast is also an added benefit. I felt like we did Miami in style.
Friendly staff - very accommodating and helpful. Concierge service is extremely thorough and prompt. Found us last minute tickets to the Miami Heat game.
Lively city with amazing history. Highly recommend a tour of the port from Bayside.

NOT for the BUDGET Traveler. With that said this place is top notch.
A sleek modern very hip and even more exclusive hotel located on the top three floors of the JW with its own private check in desk, B&O electronics, an iPad for interaction with the staff and electronic shades drapes. There are TV's behind the bathroom mirror, tremendous bath products ( The soap is creamy and lather intensive )
Free full breakfast is included and fantastic views of the water.
