Exec lounge has two levels. If main level is busy, go upstairs as it's usually quieter. Thanks to yurtripper for the tip.

Lounge is on the fifth floor.

Should be fine to get a rollaway bed or get a 2 queen redemption (vs 1 king) but note the rooms are rather small compared to Western standards (like everything in HK)

Book the 2 beds room configuration. If you are at least a Gold elite, the room type is guaranteed. There are only 2 2 beds rooms each floor as they are all corner rooms. The other 2 corner rooms are real suites. (as for 4 corners each floor).

Somewhere in the thread of Marriott family of hotels in Hong Kong, you will find the floor plan of the 2 beds room which should have enough space to put in a small rollaway.

Regular king bed room would be extremely tight or not even possible for that.

I do believe that outside NA, only Plats have their room type guaranteed. But maybe the rules have changed.

A bit OT, but we are redeeming a (7) night cert at the JW Dec 29-Jan 5. REally excited about being there over New Years. Also first time in Hong Kong in general. (Connected before, but never left HKG.) Jan 5 we are off to Phuket for our week at Phuket Beach Club.

Used Travel package for the JW week and the AA miles towards our award J travel on Cathay Pacific.

My reservation for Saturday night as a gold says "guaranteed: 2 double beds, non-smoking."

Are there really on 2 double rooms per floor? Looking at a picture of the emergency floor plan that I have from a previous stay on the 33rd floor, it looks like there could be 4 on that floor (bigger room)

Does anybody know if connecting rooms at JW Marriott HK feature 2 queens + 1 king only or is there possibility of connecting rooms with 2 queens in each room?

There is no 2 queens in a room. The regular room in JW HKG is TOO SMALL to fit in 2 queens.

There are 2 double beds room (a corner room). Double bed is much smaller than a queen bed.

It's not that much smaller... You can still very reasonably fit 2 normal sized adults on that double bed.

Yes correction. I meant 2 doubles + 1 king and 2 doubles and 2 doubles as connecting rooms in my question earlier.

Thanks once again.
Did you end up getting a room upgrade ?

Though your question is for OP, I think I am also qualified to answer it coz I stayed with JW hk in Sep/October this year (I was gold then).

I was upgraded to a executive level room (but not a suite), breakfast was in Lounge which was really good. Evening snacks were also great.

JW Marriott Hong Kong

The only thread I can find specific to the JW Marriott Hong Kong is over two years old (So I stayed at the JW Marriott Hong Kong). I usually stay at the Conrad when in Hong Kong, but decided to try the JW Marriott next month. I'm a Gold member and booked two rooms on points, with a $225 upgrade to Executive rooms. Is it worth the upgrade? How likely are they to upgrade Golds if I didn't pay to guarantee it? If I do, will they perhaps give us a suite and a regular room?

Why would you pay extra for an executive room if you're a Gold??? You will have lounge access automatically.

To get a nicer room. Hence my question as to if it is worth it.

The rooms are the same, except the executive rooms are on floors 31-35, hence my question why you would pay extra for them.

btw, there are a few relevant threads you might want to take a look at:

Advice kindly sought re Gold benefits at JW Marriott Hong Kong

and

Hong Kong: JW vs Renaissance
