Waikiki Beach Marriott
- What's Included
Don't get this one mixed up with the smaller Marriott property one block back from the beach. This one is right across the street from the beach. The only problem I have with this resort is there is still a problem with the homeless people at this end of Waikiki. While on vacation it's disconcerting to see someone passed out on the sidewalk. This has been on ongoing problem in Waikiki for the thirty plus years we've been going there so we're used to seeing it. To be very honest you either look the other way and save money or spend more and stay at the other end of Waikiki. It is a well patrolled area but there are still panhandlers asking for spare change. The beach area is our favorite because of the break water and calmer water. The hotel employees are excellent. We stayed in the second tower section, the advantage is you're not right on the main street with the noise, the disadvantage is your view is not as good as the front tower.
Spent 3 nights here recently and was quite impressed with its location and amenities as well as the service. The front desk staff was great upon check-in and the bell staff was great at checkout too. While I still hate having the $30 resort fee tacked on for things like internet and newspaper that I should be receiving for free as a Marriott Platinum member, at least it also included free DVD rentals (which I didn't use given I was in Hawaii!) and a free drink at the bar each night. The best value was the free breakfast buffet certificate given for being Platinum as $35/person is quite steep for breakfast in my opinion.The location of the hotel can't be beat. It's basically a block from Waikiki beach and if you're lucky enough to have a room that faces the beach, the view from the balcony of the room is incredible, especially at sunset. It's far enough down the beach too that you're a bit more isolated from all the tourist activity that goes on more towards the malls and other hotels farther up the road, which is nice if you're looking moreso to relax than partake in shopping.The room was adequate in size given you're in Hawaii, so you shouldn't be spending a whole lot of time in the room to begin with! During my stay the hotel was in the process of upgrading its TV's from 37 inch to 55 inch, which is huge in a room of that size. The A/C does get a little chilly in the room after spending the day outside in the heat and humidity of Waikiki.I didn't eat any meals at the hotel restaurants during my stay as there's a bunch of other restaurants within walking distance of the hotel that seemed to be a better value than the hotel ones. There's also a bunch of shops in both the lobby and on the first floor of the hotel where you can get everything from jewelry and cosmetics to souvenirs and drinks, which is great if you choose not to rent a car while staying here.I also did not use the pools or the fitness center so cannot speak to those but know the hotel had both available for guests to use. Overall, if I make it back to Hawaii again in the future, I'll definitely choose to stay here again if the price is right.
Great hotel, with great amenities and is close not only to the beach but shops, restaurants etc.Pools are great and easy to get to and from.ABC store is efficient for whatever it is that you need.Rooms very clean
Pool doesn't get sun until about 11a this time of year. Great views from our balcony. Also had a spacious room. Carpet was showing wear but otherwise accommodations are nice and location is good. Laundromat on site- same level as the pool and fitness center so you can pack light and wash clothes while u work out or relax by the pool. Though make sure to do a large load because it's not cheap ($7 total to wash & dry) but might be worth the convenience and hassle of packing too much. No car needed but- if you plan to explore def worth getting one
Wow - these have to be the SLOWEST elevators of ANY HOTEL I've ever stayed!!! And the staff had absolutely NO IDEA where any stairs were. Get this - waited over TEN MINUTES to take the elevator 2 flights to the gym -because there were no accessible stairs. Marriott - you should be ashamed!!
