Away from the famed Las Vegas strip there is another world of great restaurants and hotels. Recently we had the occasion to stop by one of our favorite upscale hotels in Summerlin Las Vegas, the J W Marriott resort and casino. Inside is their newest restaurant venue, Hawthorn Grill and it is sure to put some invigoration into the dining scene with its massive and expensive remodel of the former Ceres and the Carmel Room.
For its tranquil gardens and lush pool setting with large palm trees
and cascading waterfalls, this lovely hotel respite is conveniently
close to hiking trails at the famous tourist area of Red Rock and world
class golfing greens at nearby TPC. With such attractive offerings, the
JW Marriott is keeping pace with the demands of excellent and
sophisticated dining highlighting their stellar reputation for ambience
and elegance. Hawthorn Grill is conveniently located in the Spa Tower on
the south side of the resort and boasts,“more than 18,000 square feet
with seating for more than 370 guests in the main dining room, many
overlooking bubbling fountains and lush landscaping with an, outdoor
patio, and an chic ultra-lounge area.”
entrance into the restaurant glimmers with an opulent wine cellar,
showcasing more than 170 bottles and 30 wines by the glass. With a
stunning lounge and bar area, diners have the ability to choose many
cozy banquettes and booths facing tranquil pools and waterfalls that
offer colored lighting for evening ambience.
