When your most prominent neighbor is among Europe’s largest buildings—Romania’s
parliament, the regal Casa Poporului—
it takes something special to stand out.
Bucharest’s most luxurious hotel, the
JW MARRIOTT BUCHAREST GRAND,
manages to do just that. An elegant
façade sets the tone for a stay at this
401-room palace of resplendence.
Opened in 2000, the property became
a JW Marriott (Europe’s first) in 2004.
Boasting a range of exceptional facilities,
the hotel does everything on a stately
scale. The main staircase is made entirely
of gleaming marble, and the guest rooms
are the city’s largest. The swimming pool
is expansive, as is the range of treatments
available at the spa center.
Dining options are just as noteworthy.
The JW Steakhouse serves some of the
finest cuts in Bucharest and hosts a
spectacular brunch every Sunday, when
local families mix with visitors during
a four-hour extravaganza of food and
drink, from oysters to pink champagne.
Unsurprisingly, you’ll have trouble getting a table without a reservation.
The hotel’s elegantly relaxed Italian
restaurant, Cucina, offers a rotating menu
that showcases different regions in Italy.
Champions, the casual sports bar, is home
to a top-rated burger, and in summer The
Garden doubles as a refreshing retreat
from the heat of the city and becomes a
hugely popular evening venue.
