Place that I stay

The luxury stay in JW Marriott Medan

What the first thing that will cross your mind when you heard the name of ‘JW Marriott’?

Well, for me, the first thing that I thought when I heard JW Marriott is ‘luxury’, and I’m glad that I could taste the luxury of JW Marriott during my visit in Medan, Indonesia.

The JW Marriott Hotel in Medan is a really noticeable building as it’s a very tall while surrounded by much lower buildings. During the night, you could see this one elegant and tall building with a bright lighting on top of it shaping the name ‘JW Marriott’.

Every time I stayed in a hotel, I always request to stay in a high-floor room if possible. The reason is simple. I want to be able to see the panoramic view of the city. Just like what I got from my comfortable room on 22nd floor.

My room at that time was a deluxe room. I could say that JW Marriott provides a quite spacious room, where there’s enough room for the working desk and two sofas near the window. Not too mention that there’s a flat TV with many channels just in front of the bed. To add the touch of what they called it ‘contemporary design’, JW Marriott also puts a few of their painting collection inside the room.

I really love the double bed in this room, as it’s accompanied with plenty of pillows and comfortable and soft bedding sheet on top of my bed.

How about the bathroom?

The bathroom is an essential part of a room especially in a luxury hotel like JW Marriott, and I was surprised that they have of what I called it ‘I can see you from outside’ bathroom! Haha …Well, no … This is actually not a ‘see-through’ bathroom, but they use a ‘see-through’ glass as the divider so it’s possible for you to watch the TV while you soak yourself in the tub. But if you’re not getting use to a bathroom with a ‘see-through’ glass, you just close this part by pressing the ‘down’ button at the control panel so a curtain will roll down to close the ‘see-through’ glass.

The big bathroom in my room not only has a bathtub, but also has a rain shower area inside the room. I always love to take a bath under a rain shower, it feels like I having a shower below a waterfall! 🙂

As a 5-star hotel, JW Marriott Hotel Medan also provides a one-stop health service in one of its floor. If you prefer to exercise indoor, there’s a sufficient fitness centre to be used. If you want to enjoy the weather, there’s an outdoor swimming pool on the same floor with the fitness centre. But if you want to relax and rejuvenate your body, you can just head to the Quan Spa still on the same floor.

At the swimming pool area, it doesn’t mean you must swim in here. You could just sit beside the pool inside a bale-bale and enjoy the windy weather or your drinks. Well, as for me, as this is an outdoor area, this is good place for me to take photo of the surrounding!

If you are lazy to go out to have your lunch or dinner; JW Marriott has a few selections of restaurant to choose for, such as Jade Restaurant for the Chinese food, or The Prime Steak House (well you know what they serves here! 🙂 ).

JW Marriott is also well-known for its extensive selection of breakfast. The breakfast that they serves in Marriott cafe ranging from Asian to Western buffet style breakfast with theatre style kitchen – where food is prepared in full view of the guests. I always love if there are many food to choose for the breakfast. The breakfast time is only until 10AM each morning, but Marriott cafe will open all day, all night to accompany the other restaurants inside the building of JW Marriott.

There’s also a Lounge area in JW Marriott where you could also ordered the food in here, while listening to the live jazz piano music.

Overall, I did have a great and comfortable short stay in JW Marriott Hotel Medan. The location is also quite close to the famous Merdeka Walk where there are various restaurants in that area too.

So if you plan to have either a quick luxury escape or a long and comfortable stay in Medan, you could consider staying in JW Marriott Hotel Medan!

Mixed Up Already

The things that I love are movies, music, and travel. I have an extended family in the movies world, called MoviegoersID, and we love to hang out and watch the movie together. How about music? Well, do you know The Corrs? Yep, they are a very talented family/musician that I deeply love since high school! If you love them, then we might get a long well ;-) . My love to music then grow to Sugarland, Christina Aguilera, The Script, and of course the one and only Anggun. Travel is the love that grows in me very late. At around 2011, I fell in love with travelling, and I tried my best to travel each month since that time. You can contact me at .
