    A good resort with great service; requires some tlc; requires a better space for yoga (outside the entrance to the gym is not very clever!); ease off on the airconditioning in the guest corridors (it's freezing)!!!

    Standard high rise hotel, good room, helpful staff and free broadband in the lobby. Breakfast with a great choice and very good quality food.

    We had a good view of the sea but inevitably the other high-rise hotels crowd around you.

    Historical Traveler Reviews Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa Honolulu

    Marriott tries its best


    I just spent 5 days at the Waikiki Beach Marriott (June, 2003). I can find no fault with this hotel. My room was exactly as pictured on the web. I had a view of both Diamond Head and the beach. The room was immaculately clean. A newspaper was outside our door every morning. They even sent us a delicious basket of fruit! The hotel staff was friendly and competent. The restaurants were excellent. The hotel is large but elegant. I highly recommend this hotel. In my opinion, the Marriott is doing everything it can to please its guests.

    Great home away from home!


    I stayed at the Marriott for two weeks in March of 2003. It was a great place for those not looking for the spring break crowd and the staff was excellent! The bar staff on the K tower pool deck were all wonderful sources of information. The sun gets to the K tower pool about 12ish so don't go there til then. The deck has nice covered areas with comfie lounges. The pool is even deep enough to cive into after sitting in the Hawaiian heat. Thurs. nights there is an island show that the locals even come to with Aunty Genoa Keawe (an icon of Hawaiian music). The maid service was very generous and friendly. We were never asking for anything. It was very clean, no carpet stains no moldy bathrooms, etc. and the grounds were always immaculate. The views of the ocean were post card perfect and the noise level not a problem for a hotel right on Kalakaua. You can even see and hear the Sunset on the Beach celebrations from your room. There is an ABC store (Mr. K) right in the lobby and shops. coffee shop, and a rental car agency. The main lobby is beautifully decorated and maintained. I would recommend the Marriott for anyone looking for a great hotel!

    Loved Marriott Waikiki


    We stayed at the Marriott Waikiki and it was absoluetly wonderful. We had 8 in our party. From the moment we checked in and until our departure, we were impressed with everything. The teenage girls loved the pool, the restaurants and all the staff. We are staying there again in December. We highly recommend the Marriott Waikiki.

    You could do better...


    I just came back from a trip to Honolulu and we stayed at the Marriott Waikiki Beach hotel. I have to say, compared to other hotels on Waikiki for similar price tags, I wasn't all that impressed with this one. I would check out the Aston Waikiki (not to be confused with the Aston Sunset). This hotel is right next door to the Marriott and seemed to be a much livlier place to be-- and for much less money! Also, for about the same price as the Marriott and a much nicer hotel, check out the Hilton Waikiki. It just recently underwent a massive rennovation and is absolutely beautiful. Last piece of advice-- for a top-notch hotel definitely go with the Royal Hawaiin. One of the oldest places on the beach and absolutely breathtaking.

    Nice big hotel


    The Marriot hotel sits on a huge portion of Waikiki land. As a result, the towers have a lot of "buffer" space between them and the street. This allows for a much quieter room as it isolates the street noise by a considerable degree (if you didn't know, Waikiki street noise is equal to that of any major city center). I stayed in a room here and was pleasantly surprised. True, the rooms are very small, but quite nicely appointed. My room also had a small balcony, a very nice touch! Staff was OK, but I didn't feel they went out of their way to make my stay more pleasant, but in no way was anyone surly or rude to me.

    Nice location


    We stayed in Deluxe Ocean View Room for 2 days. Good location, close to Waikiki beach (only 10 mins by walking) and bus station. Really big hotel with 2 tower. Their service is good and the lobby is really big and nice. As I know they just renovated, so the room is clean and new. Maybe because the lobby is too beautiful, so when we entered the room is kind of upset. The room is not big, especially the bathroom. Although we got Deluxe Ocean View Room, actually you could only see the ocean in balcony. Also they will charge phone fee even call local call (I don't know if happen to all hotels). But overall it is a good hotel with reasonable price.

    Wonderful vacation hotel


    My husband and I recently stayed at the Waikiki Marriott for a week. We were pleasantly surprised by the friendly and helpful attitude that the staff displayed. We were upgraded to the newly renovated tower with the most beautiful view of Waikiki Beach. The room was very spacious. The breakfast buffet was the best around. The pool area (also known as the terrace area) was wonderful, with nightly entertainment. The gift shops varied, and the concierge service and advice on tours and local events was extremely informative.

    We only had one complaint, and that was the fact that we didn't stay longer! Next time we will stay at least 10-14 days!! Because we will return.......

    Wonderful Hotel


    Just spent a week at this wonderful hotel. We stayed in the newly renovated tower, we were moved to a high floor (30th of 33), and to the side overlooking Waikiki beach (Diamond Head is pretty, but other sides views is much more fun). The new rooms are very nice, and the people at the hotel were lovely. I would recommend one of the bed and breakfast packages, as the breakfast buffet is great, the fruit alone is a treat. The beach across from the hotel was lovely, not as crowded as others, and a great set-up for small children to swim.

    Great location


    We stayed in this hotel for one month in March 2002. Rennovations had just been completed and we were in the new tower. Lots of confusion about which tower guests' rooms were in, but they should have that solved by now. The decor was very nice (tropical but not overly so, we had a small suite with a sitting room (the regular size rooms must be VERY small though). There are two very nice pools, one with a bar/restaurant right next to it. The hotel's location across from the Waikiki Beach is ideal, you can walk to everything in Wakiki but you are at the end of the 'strip' so it's a bit quieter than the middle of Kalakaua.

    Great stay at the Marriott


    We stayed at the Marriott, Waikiki Beach for 5 days in December, 2001. Although the hotel is under renovation for improvement, the service was very,very good. It is located across the street from the beach and we could watch the surfers from our terrace. The hotel is located within walking distance of almost everything, and there was some activity on the beach every night. We even met someone there from our hometown. The hotel is already beautiful and I would love to see it again after renovations are completed. The Aides Marathon was held while we were there and the runners ran right past the hotel. There was also a show in the lounge nghtly. We truly enjoyed our stay.

    Day at the beach and other things

    Went to the beach near our hotel and I dipped my feet in the ocean, then walked in it collecting pumice pieces. We then tried to go to the International Market, but found it closed. Mom and I had a cool glass of fruit juice at her old hotel from five years ago while Dad saw a nearby war museum. Later was dinner at Moana Terrace in the hotel.

    Hawaii, finally!

    Arrived at the Waikiki Marriott finally! So glad to be here. The lady at McDonald's screwed up our order and gave us the wrong drink (Sprite instead of Coke) and was chastised for it by her coworker. Having lunch and supper combined and then I guess to bed.
