Historical Traveler Reviews Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach Honolulu
I stayed at the Wyland from July 28-August 3 and had a great experience. I owe it to other trip advisor users to post my experience on this as this is the reason I chose this hotel.
The hotel is not as big as other big chain hotels like the Sheraton or Hilton but the service you receive is superb. It has a boutique feel to it because it has all the amenities and service without the crowd and price. We were upgraded for free to a partial ocean view room. The room was small but very clean and chic. It has a flat screen tv, good size closet, small marble-countertop bathroom, and a good size lanai. There was a mini-refrigerator with sink, and the use of a safe-free of charge. We had a king size bed and it was very comfortable. I usually have a hard time sleeping in hotels because of the bed but the bed was extremely comfortable. Housekeeping came in daily and did a great job in replenishing the toiletries and coffee.
The pool and jacuzzi are very nice to relax in, as it is conveniently located close to the bar. They have an amazing mai-tai. The newspaper is delivered daily free of charge. All the staff at the hotel were very pleasant and helpful. Any time we asked a question, they were quick to answer it or help us get the information. There is also use of a computer and printer free of charge. One important thing was that we never felt cramped in the common areas of the hotel , it is smaller than bigger hotel chains but spacious at the same time. You never have to wait long for an elevator, which is great when you're tired and just want to go to your room and rest.
The area is ideal because although it's not on Kalakua Avenue, it is a short distance walk to the beach and the restaurants are very close by. Honolulu, especially Waikiki is very commercialized and so you'll find all major restaurants in the area (Chilli's, Starbuck's, Jamba Juice, Ruth Chris, Round Table, McDonald's, IHOP, etc.) easily accessible. The bus stop is right in front of the hotel.
Séjour formidable, hôtel très agréable
Nous avons passé un séjour formidable, les chambres et la salle de bains sont très propres et on voit bien que tout a été refait à neuf. La cabine de douche est assez petite, mais très propre et jolie. Il y a dans la chambre un micro-onde, un petit réfrigérateur et un évier. La piscine de taille moyenne est très joliment décorée le soir grâce à des torches tiki. Le hall et le bar ont de super couleurs, des lignes claires, le tout est très chic avec ces portes toujours ouvertes qui donnent sur la piscine. Tout le monde a été très sympathique. Nous sommes partis chercher des glaçons un soir à notre étage, et nous avons découvert qu'il suffisait d'appeler l'accueil pour qu'ils nous en apportent, ce qui était très agréable. C'est maintenant un hôtel Outrigger et non plus Doubletree. Il n'est pas encore tout à fait terminé. Le bar, le café, le restaurant et le spa ne sont pas encore ouverts, mais quand ce sera le cas, cet hôtel sera vraiment fantastique. Il n'est pas au bord de la mer, mais se trouve à une courte marche des artères principales. Nous recommandons vivement cet hôtel à tous nos amis et nous y retournerons sans hésiter.
J'ai adoré le Wyland
Cet hôtel est vraiment super. Les chambres sont fantastiques et les parties communes sont branchées et contemporaines. L'hôtel est situé à quelques minutes à pied des meilleurs magasins que j'ai pu visiter ! Vivement que je puisse y retourner.
Great newly renovated hotel
My husband and I returned from a one week stay at the Wyland Waikiki last week. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this hotel.
We have both been to Hawaii many times in the past and I think this place represents the best value for money of all the places we have stayed. I booked through Travelocity and got a great super saver special including one free night. I also contacted the hotel directly after booking to ensure they had our reservation and received a quick response confirming our booking. We had let them know it was our one year wedding anniversary and on arrival found we had been upgraded to a partial ocean view suite.
The room was great, everything was new and tastefully decorated. We had a lounge/dining area with a flat screen tv and a kitchen with fridge, microwave, coffeemaker (with daily complimentary coffee) and sink. The bathroom had a movable shower head over the bath with good pressure. There was a large mirror and a swivel magnifying mirror also- great for putting on makeup etc.
The bed in the bedroom was extremely comfortable with all new linen (also a flat screen tv in here) and the maids came in not only to clean the room in the morning but also to turn down the sheets in the evening.
Our balcony ran the full length of the lounge and bedroom with tables and chairs to sit on. The partial ocean view is really only a peep of the ocean but I don't think you could go wrong with any of the rooms here as they all appear to have balconies either over the pool area and street or towards the ocean and street. You are not bang up against any other hotel so should get good light into any room here.
The staff were also great and very friendly. There was never a wait at the desk to talk to anyone. We requested ice one night and had it brought to the room. Another time we asked for some wine glasses and these also arrived promptly. We were also given a late checkout on request at no extra charge and had our luggage stored. Currently there is also free internet access in the lobby and a room full of massage chairs for guest use (with a tv and xbox for those inclined) off the lobby. The chairs were great after a day shopping!
The pool area with hot spa was beautifully landscaped and towels are also available here. This area and all the other public areas (including some cool lounge areas in the lobby) were all almost empty most times we were around which was nice. I imagine it will get busier as word gets out but i'd stay here now if you can!
The spa, gym and coffee shop are not yet open but are not really amenities I would usually use anyway. They were doing a little finishing work around the hotel (some tiling and painting) but nothing to interfere with our stay.
Overall the whole hotel with all the Wyland sculptures and art had a small boutique feel that was really nice. It is a few blocks from the beach but still very central for restaurants (who wants to walk too far at night to eat out?) and shopping and there is a bus stop right outside. I highly recommend a stay here.

GREAT Stay - VERY nice hotel
We had a wonderful stay, the rooms and bathrooms are very clean and you can tell everything is new. The shower stall itself is small but very nice and clean. A microwave, small refrigerator and a sink are in the room. The small/medium sized pool is beautifully landscaped with tiki torches lit at night. The lobby and bar area have great colors, clean lines and is very hip with doors they keep open that lead to the pool. Everyone was very friendly. We went searching for ice one night on our floor and found out that all you have to do is call the front desk and they bring it up to you - very nice.
This is now an Outrigger property and not a Doubletree.
It's still not 100% finished. The bar, coffee shop, restaurant and spa are not open yet but when they do this hotel will really be great. It's not on the water but is within in short walking distance to the main streets. We would definitely recommend to friends and stay here again.
OTTIMA permanenza; hotel MOLTO bello
Siamo stati benissimo; le camere e i bagni sono immacolati e si vede che tutto è nuovo. Il vano doccia è piccolo, ma molto bello e pulito. In camera troverete anche un piccolo frigo e un lavandino. La piscina, di dimensioni medio-piccole, è decorata in modo meraviglioso con delle torce tiki che la notte vengono illuminate. Nell'atrio e nel bar ci sono dei colori bellissimi e delle linee semplici; inoltre sono molto alla moda e, grazie alle porte che rimangono aperte, sono collegati direttamente alla piscina. Tutti erano veramente premurosi. Una sera siamo andati alla ricerca di ghiaccio sul nostro piano e abbiamo scoperto che basta telefonare alla reception loro te lo portano; davvero ottimo.
Quest'albergo ora fa parte della catena Outrigger e non della Doubletree.
Non è ancora finito al 100%. Il bar, café, ristorante e centro benessere non sono ancora aperti, ma quando lo saranno allora quest'albergo sarà davvero eccellente. Non si trova direttamente sull'oceano, ma è a due passi da tutte le strade più importanti. Senz'altro lo consiglierei ai miei amici e, personalmente, ci tornerei.
Großartiger Aufenthalt - sehr schönes Hotel
Wir hatten einen wundervollen Aufenthalt. Zimmer und Badezimmer waren sehr sauber und man konnte sehen, dass alles noch neu war. Die Duschkabine war zwar klein, aber sehr schön und sauber. Das Zimmer war mit Mikrowelle, einem kleinen Kühlschrank und einem Spülbecken ausgestattet.
Der kleine/mittelgroße Pool war wunderschön in die Landschaft eingebettet und am Abend mit Tiki-Fackeln beleuchtet. Die Lobby und der Barbereich waren in großartigen Farben eingerichtet, es war dort sauber und sehr hip, die Türen zum Pool standen immer offen. Alle dort waren sehr freundlich.
Wir haben einen Abend auf unserer Etage nach Eiswürfeln gesucht und fanden heraus, dass man nur an der Rezeption anrufen musste und das Eis wurde dann aufs Zimmer gebracht - sehr nett.
Es ist jetzt ein Outrigger-Hotel und kein Doubletree mehr. Sie waren aber noch nicht ganz fertig. Die Bar, der Coffee Shop, das Restaurant und die Spa hatten noch nicht auf, aber wenn, dann wird das Hotel ganz toll sein. Es liegt nicht am Wasser, aber die Hauptstraßen sind nicht weit entfernt.
Wir würden das Hotel definitiv Freunden empfehlen und auch selbst wieder dorthin gehen.
Il Wyland ci è piaciuto tantissimo
Quest'hotel è fantastico. Le camere sono eccezionali e le aree pubbliche alla moda e dallo stile contemporaneo. L'albergo si trova a due passi da alcuni tra i negozi più belli che abbia mai visto! Non vedo l'ora di tornarci.
Loved the Wyland
This hotel is so cool. The rooms are great and the public areas are hip and contemporary. The location is a short walk to some of the best shopping I've ever seen! Can't wait to come back
Beore it opened
The outside of hotel is great. We were in Honolulu from 9/3 to 9/14. Went into Wyland hotel 3 times, front desk was staff was nice, as well as rest of staff. The entrancewa y was inviting from the parking lot. Anticipating the opening of the gallery store, since the one in Honolulu closed as well as the gallery on the North Shore moving. Asked for rates, were told to go to website. Found out today that rates could not be found until November. So, the hotel is open, yet staff does not know rates, which begin in November.

As arranged got picked up at 9.10 - seemed strange as the talk the driver gave sounded the same as the one yesterday but we were told we were going to the Arizona and then would be taken back to Waikiki. The other passengers then told us that they had booked to be back in Waikiki for 1.30 as some of them had flights to catch. When we arrived at …
Picked up at 9.10 am by Hawaiian Adventures and taken to Pearl Harbour. Have seen the films and now to see where it all happened. There are museums - the Bowfin submarine (which we didn't go on - don't like them) - the monument to the Arizona and the Battleship Missouri. It is classified as a National Park run by the military. There are some pieces …
Took the campervan back to Britz (glad to be rid of it). We saw the Manager who had a list of our phone calls and complaints. She was very sympathetic and said she would take it up with her National Manager and get back to us.
Now to the airport and Hawaii with a stop off in Fuji. We flew with Fijian Airways and the crew were so cheerful …
We flew into Oahu a few days early to escape the damp weather of New Zealand. Had heard mixed reviews of Waikiki but enjoyed our time there. Good beaches, great people watching, surfing, shops and restaurants.
Hanauma Bay was a pretty spot popular for snorkelling, with Marine Reserve status.
Apart from enjoying continuous sunshine, the highlight of Oahu was our day at Pearl Harbour. A slightly chaotic but memorable and, at times, moving reminder of the ...

First stop, Turtle Bay. We had some mini oreos for the journey so by the time we arrive (it is about 15 minutes away) Elwood is bouncing off the walls. We are glad to let him free into the water for a proper razz around. Woody is delighted. He jumps and plays for ages in the ...
