Once inside this JW Marriott, one of the first Marriott hotels in Bogota, you may momentarily get confused as to what continent you’re on, but with a spa, gym and countless restaurants, you probably won’t care. The service here is impeccable, and the management aims to please. After a long day touring the city, you can rest on a plush sofa and enjoy high tea. If you have an hour to spare before dinner, sip on a pink pepper martini at the bar. And if that doesn’t tickle your fancy, there are 70 other flavours to choose from. The restaurant has the only live lobsters in Bogotá, too, and the rest of the menu is well above your standard hotel fare. Meanwhile, for those who turn their noses up at crowded lobbies, platinum membership grants you access to a ninth-floor ‘hotel within a hotel’, complete with butlers, evening canapés, and stunning views. Who could refuse?
