JW Marriott KL underwent renovation in 2017. The relatively big, 878sq Mayang Sari Grand Ballroom with high ceiling, is a classic, old English style space for weddings and social events. However there is no romantic intelligent LED lights, only warm yellow lights. There are 23 Function rooms which can be used for tea ceremony or other small events. The hotel provides a dedicated Bridal holding room with private washroom. It is located in the heart of the vibrant Golden Triangle, Bukit Bintang, KL’s prime business and shopping district and adjoining to Starhill Shopping Gallery, opposite Pavilion Shopping Mall, very strategic indeed.
The wedding menu can be customized. Very praise worthy food, especially Honey-baked cod (JW signature dish) and western dessert. Efficient service from the wedding team, table arrangements, hall settings, PIC Rodney is helpful but may take a while to respond to your requests. The sound system is ok but not good enough, as guests at the end of the hall are unable to hear very well. I think we shall be able to see improvements after the renovation.

I am glad that I’ve picked JW Marriott as my wedding dinner venue. Maddie and Emily were very accommodating to our needs before and during the event. They were top notch organizers that helped us run the event smoothly. Besides that, the food served were delicious and the servers during the nigjt were attentive. If you’re looking for a venue, look no further because JW Marriott should be your pick as they have two ballrooms. One to accommodate up to 70 tables and another to accommodate maximum of 30 tables.

It is unfortunate that this review came a lil late as I heard that they would be renovating JW for 2 years. I suppose this review will be more useful for those opting for JW Marriott/Ritz Carlton/Majestic as they are under the same management/kitchen. If you are willing to pay more for good food, you won’t regret it.
excellent and very efficient service from the start
