Wow ... that looks awesome. Two great new hotels between this one and the French Leave Resort.

On a random date, in February the rate was around 475 SGD or $350 US. Not sure how that compares to the market but it looks nice.

Not really, the price was comparable to the Marina Bay Sands.

Posted this news article in another thread.

ritz carlton also has a lot of rooms, so is a lot less than if it had many fewer

(shangri la valley wing and raffles for example have many fewer rooms)

edit - i guess i should avoid making comments within context of luxury (only)

Picked a date in Feb:

Marriott $330US
JW Marriott $350US
Ritz Carlton $375US (RC does not participate in RC or MR)

Now that we've gotten that out of the way, I look forward to the first trip report on this property after it opens in December.

Cheers.

Looks like rates are only available from 1st January 2017 onwards. Lowest I've seen so far is S$346 per night (Advanced Purchase). After taxes it would be S$407...

Marriott press release today:

http://news.marriott.com/2016/12/jw-...uts-singapore/

Excerpt:

"JW Marriott Hotels & Resorts, the global luxury brand that is part of Marriott International’s (NASDAQ: MAR) luxury brands portfolio, is thrilled to debut the new JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach – the brand’s first hotel in Singapore. Located in close proximity to the Marina Bay entertainment and business districts, the new 634-room luxury hotel is poised to become an iconic lifestyle destination in the heart of Singapore’s arts and culture district.

The hotel consists of both historic and newly constructed buildings with interiors designed by renowned French designer Philippe Starck and architecture by award-winning British architects, Foster and Partners. Complemented by a multi-million dollar collection of more than 30 works and installations by regionally and internationally acclaimed artists, guests can expect enriching and multi-sensory cultural experiences throughout the hotel.

Upon arrival, guests are greeted by a 7-metre video wall installation by South Korean artist Lee Lee Nam. The wall brings art to life through movement and technology with the use of the LED monitors as a canvas to create an artistic symphony.

Additional works include the Donna a Cavallo, a lobby sculpture by the acclaimed Fernando Botero, and the Gorilla, a reclaimed scrap metal sculpture at the hotel entrance by Turner Prize winner Iain Nutting. Guest elevators are also an artistic expression with custom RGB wallpaper, and graffiti artwork by Milan-based art and design duo Carnovsky.

JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach will feature a total of nine dining options. Five outlets will open on 15 December 2016 including Akira Back, by celebrity chef Akira Back, which offers modern Japanese cuisine with Korean accents and culinary influences from around the world; Beach Road Kitchen, an all-day-dining restaurant, featuring global cuisine and to-go items; Court Martial Bar and Media Bar, offering cocktails in refined lounge and gastropub settings; and Tonic, serving gin-based cocktails in an intimate environment. The remaining four outlets will open second quarter 2017.

The property also features a variety of wellness offerings including Spa by JW (opening second quarter 2017). JW Marriott Hotel Singapore South Beach also boasts an outdoor infinity pool, sky garden and a 24-hour fitness centre at Flow18.

Each of the 634 guest rooms and 17 suites are fitted with a full array of modern amenities and smart technology including an Internet Protocol Television (IPTV) system, up to seven USB power sockets per room, and a Wi-Fi-enabled mobile phone that allows guests to receive calls anywhere within the property."

Just completed a one night stay there, overall was fairly happy as a Marriott gold member.

I checked-in around 6pm and was the only person checking in at the lobby at that time. I was informed that the hotel had only opened 12 days prior to my arrival and everything looked new and chic. My flight the next day wasn't until past midnight, so I proactively inquired about a 4pm checkout; the agent, Kevin, countered with a 6pm checkout, which was surprising and very accommodating. I was also upgraded to a premier room, though on the fifth floor, so the view was dismal, but the room was spacious. Highlights of the stay were definitely the staff (everyone I encountered was friendly and accommodating), the views from the fitness center, infinity pool, and lounge space on the 18th floor, and the modern feel of the hotel.

Minor quibbles:
  • I was told at check-in that the lounge had a "smart casual" dress code; I arrived in shorts and flip-flops having just gotten in from Koh Samui, so I assumed that was the reason for the gentle reminder. Therefore, it was a little annoying to have changed for the lounge, only to see people in bath slippers, shorts, athletic wear, etc., and families with small kids running around. Wouldn't have given it a second thought if I hadn't been told about the apparent policy in the first place.
  • Lounge spread was fairly decent for evening canapes; given I wasn't very hungry, I didn't need to go out for dinner after my stop there. Service in the club that evening was a miss though--I was one of maybe five people there and it took about forty minutes for anyone to check on me after I was served my first drink at my table.
  • While I enjoyed breakfast (which was served in the lounge), I definitely noticed that a couple of the offerings were the same from canapes the night before. I wasn't too put off by that, though others may be.
  • The room is well-appointed and very modern, but it took me a good five minutes to figure out how to turn off all the lights via the various switches. In addition, the toilet/bidet is apparently remote controlled, though I never got mine to work.

what is JW Marriott Brand's position? Is it luxury, as a step down to Four Seasons, Ritz and MO, but still relevant? Or it is in between upscale like Grand Hyatt and Luxury like Park Hyatt?

Does JW 's major competitor are IC and Conrad and Grand Hyatt?

The average room numbers of JW properties are around 400~500 rooms. Some JW has only 200 rooms, but some are mega and having 800~1000 rooms, Since JW is Marriott's Premium Luxury brand except for Ritz, I am just curious, because normally very luxury hotel does not have so many rooms.

Is JW more exlusive than IC? Since there are 180 and more IC in the world but only 75 JW.

You created a stand-alone thread w/ your questions, so not sure why you posted in a property specific thread w/ generic questions. We try (for the most part) to keep property threads on properties. Presumably your generic thread will get input. PS - Welcome to FT!

Cheers.
