Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach
- What's Included
I'm somewhere between 3 and 4 on this review. I stayed in the 'K' building so this is strictly related to that area. The higher marks go to the pool area, all the great seating areas both outside and inside, my room balcony with 2 chairs and a lounger, and a decent size room with a seating area couch, lots of walking space, office desk. The breakfast buffet choices and its staff were amazing, the lobby area was large and new, and the location directly in front of the beach is perfect. . The 3 star part goes towards the 'rest' of the room. I stayed in a 32 stack, it's a corner, and the size was pretty large which I appreciated. Not sure why all corners have two queen beds (would have preferred one king) from what I was told. The closet has a stack that prevents the hanger from using that section so you lose an entire foot of hanging space, and the closet itself and the doors should be updated. The mini fridge and coffee counter are located in the bathroom - would rather not leave my food and make my coffee in a bathroom (cannot understand any hotel that has this type of set up). I'm a Plat member, so would have appreciated water in the mini daily. I like the double sink in there, lots of counter space. The shower, which is separate from the tub, is tiny, and other than a small holder that barely holds a bar of soap, there is no place for your shower toiletries in there at the same time as you. You keep them on the floor of the shower, and it invites a fall - not very smart for a hotel. Having a tub that is guaranteed little use over the shower is a waste of space. The worst part though is that there is a shower head that points directly in front of you, but will only hit you if you are 5'10 or taller. It's inconvenient to use this type of shower head in your hand during your entire shower. I tried to point it to the corner and got on my toes to try to wash out my hair. WIFI did not work on the balcony of my room, and was often slow during the day so they should look at getting this upgraded. If you want a boutique hotel, this isn't the place. There are alot of people, but there is also alot of space. All the staff I dealt with were great, but I didn't use alot of their 'extra' services. I come to Honolulu once a year and usually stay on this end of the strip. It was my first time at this hotel however, and certainly an upgrade from my previous spot, so so I'll return .. but do something about the showers.
My favorite meal of our week in Honolulu was the one we enjoyed at the restaurant on the veranda where we had lunch. The salmon and ahi tuna were perfect as were the crackers and the dessert added to the meal.
The Waikiki Beach Marriott was a great stay. Good location across the street from the beach. Really enjoyed the restaurants onsite. Arancino di Mare was excellent. Ran out of fresh fish however we were late dining. Rest of the meal was great. Sensei onsite as well was Japanese/seafood/sushi. Entire several course meal including our share of sake was under $100. Great value. Outside terrace seating. Reservations recommended especially if wishing to dine outside. Concierge services were great and staff extremely helpful. Moderately priced and great option.
The hotel is clean and just across the street from the beach and ocean, it is close to some great retail shops and some great restaurants. The staff was very friendly and helpful the pools were clean and nice and overall service was good. The rooms had great views of the ocean and were clean, the ABC store in the building was nice you could buy beer and wine and snacks and save big money as opposed to the pool bar.The Italian restaurant was good and not real pricey but for the most part ate at places close to the hotel that were very good and less expensive. We would stay there again.
I suppose it depends on what you are paying for because its situated perfectly at the end of the main strip, one of the last hotels before the zoo and diamond head just across from the beach.However with Tax and stupid resort fee you are talking over 1700 dollars for a week in a reasonable room with an atrocious pokey little bathroom which is at best scruffy with the enamel peeling off it and no room to swing a cat.The room itself is very nice and clean with a great view over the bay and the pool. It is a massive hotel with two main towers and three decent restaurants. If you are really lucky and have a platinum package then just one of you gets a free breakfast the other has to pay.You also get 25% off the food and 7 free drinks if you eat in the Kuhio Beach Grill save up though its expensive and you can get better deals locally. The facilities in the hotel are superb but you pay through the nose for everything. The hotel appears to be always packed with guests so its about time they started to treat their Platinum Guests like they value them and sort the bathrooms at the very least.
