"Nice but not a Hawaiian Resort"
The hotel is beautiful and situated perfectly right in the middle of everything. However, this is not what I was picturing for my Hawaiian vacation. I moved up to Turtle Bay on the north shore and it was like, ah, yes, this is what I dream about. Waikiki is a very busy, metropolitan area like staying downtown NYC with a beach. If you're going for night […] life or business, this is a great place. If you want a Hawaii vacation, look into a resort. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"great place to stay in Waikiki"
this hotel is excellent!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great central location for Waikiki"
The rooms were very quiet and clean the service was excellent. At one point I needed a needle and thread, I asked the front desk, they couldn't find one on hand but sent one up to our room a few minutes later. The hotel seemed to be up to date on technology and was very clean all around.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Being in the thick of it all"
Great location if you want easy access to beach and stores,wonderful staff and great swimming pools.The heart of Waikki Beach for sure!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Hotel across road from Waikiki Beach. Hotel has two towers, one at beach front and the other behind. See if you can get a room closer to beach in that tower. Offered upgrade to partial ocean view room at check in which was nice.Genuine Expedia guest review
"great location & will stay there again"
the hotel was located across the road from the beach ( no hotel on the beach) so had a great view. Hotel had 2 pools so they were not overcrowded. There are four places to eat in the hotel with the restaurant Arancino just fantastic, real Italian food. So good we ate there 3 times as well it was the only place in Waikiki that can make a real espresso […] or machiato coffee with true Italian coffee. We arrived at 8am and they had our room ready by 9am which was great after a 9 hour flight from Sydney. We were upgraded with no charge which was just fantastic as this was a holiday for my daughter's 21st. the rooms are a little dated but are very clean and spacious. Our room had a view of both Diamond head and the beach which was just beautiful. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Wonderful Waikiki Marriott Resort"
For those of you who are planning a visit to Honolulu, I highly recommend the excellent Marriott Waikiki Resort and Spa. My brief four night stay was most enjoyable largely due to the exceptional staff who are without doubt the very personification of warm hospitality and gracious entertaining. Conveniently situated across the street from the world […] famous Waikiki Beach, many rooms offer spectacular views of the Pacific Ocean and those breathtaking Hawaiian sunsets. My room was tastefully appointed and kept spotless. Never have I slept on a more luxuriously comfortable king sized bed. The wide variety of gifts shops, boutiques and restaurants located in the hotel itself makes the facility self-contained. Should you choose to venture out, a multitude of popular attractions are within walking distance. Those of you who are looking for economy as well as comfort will be glad to hear that Honolulu's reliable public transportation system has bus stops just outside the hotel. Be sure to catch the wonderful free Hawaiian Hula show just a short walk away across the street on selected evenings at six o'clock. So take it from me. Your Hawaiian vacation will be a pleasant, memorable experience if you stay here. Book now through Expedia. ALOHA! Larry E. Johnson Saint Paul, MN Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel is great, but they will try to upsell"
Upsell presented immediately upon check in. They even presented a laminated chart with our options and told us that the room we purchased at $220 a night didn't have a very good view of the ocean and that we should upgrade.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

Beautiful place - excellent location - friendly staff - highly recommendedGenuine Expedia guest review
"Not as good as expected"
To be true, there is nothing really wrong but it is just not aligned with the priceGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"You dont get what you paid for"
Felt like any other hotel. Nothing special. Bed had a wedge which made it uncomfortable, and pillows were horrible. Didn't quite live up to the Marriott name. At least to the others I've been to. My recommendation : pay a bit more and stay at the hilton or hyatt.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Awesome View! Did not like the resort fee!"
Only issue I had was a mandatory resort fee. This was charged for basic things (wifi, phone calls etc) but was not optional. We used nothing that came with the package and when I asked why I was being charged for something I didn't used that just noted that I agreed to it when reserving the room. The lady checking out next to us also had issues with […] the same thing. Part of the package is 1 free mai tai a day and I guess she ordered two (expecting one would be free) and was charged for both at outrageous prices. I really did love the room/view/quality of the hotel. But a mandatory charge like that is not good business and desinated to trap tourist. Many Hotels out here don't include mandatory fees.

"Undisclose extra charges"
every big Hotel that I stay in the U.S whether on my business's trip or on vacation they don't charge for the Internet usage's fees. This Hotel charge me additional $25.00 per day for internet fees ( well, plus other things that they bundled in it that I don't need to use ). Why dont you just charge for the internet's fees only?.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Love love love it!"
I had an amazing experience at Waikiki Beach marriott resort and spa. My fiance and I recently stayed there around halloween and boy did they make our vacation complete!!! Beach front views, complimentary mai tai's, pool/jacuzzi, really clean and spacious bedrooms, friendly staff and I have to say, they have by far the softest most comfortable most […] inviting sheets, bed and pillows I have ever slept on!!! I'd actually want to call them and ask what kind of mattress, sheets and pillows they use. That's how much I loved it! Bottomline.. I highly recommend this place. Food downstairs is pretty good too! (Kinda pricy but what isn't, in the island everything is expensive) overall I love it! Really close to the shops and restaurants was a plus! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel was beautiful and very clean."
We had a very good time because we wanted to be close to the beach. We didn't get a car so we walked the area and used some east transportation. The hotel upgraded our room upon arrival-very cool.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Twice Great stay"
We stayed before and after our 7 day Hawaii cruise. We booked a city view room for both nights. The city view was very nice but on our return stay we were upgraded to an ocean view room. Super great!! Thanks for a great stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Better hotels for the price"
We stayed at the Marriot for one night on a layover and found it serviceable. However, I would not recommend it on the grounds there are better hotels in Waikiki for the price (especially when you include the compulsory resort fee and the charge for a crib, which effectively added almost another 25% to the price of the room). We ended up cancelling […] the crib but the charge was still placed on the bill, which we had to raise with the front desk the next morning. The hotel was centrally located and had a nice pool but the rooms were basic and dated and delivery of our baggage to the room was very slow. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Good location..nothing special"
Just needed a room for the night in Honolulu overnight before a cruise. Picked it out for the balcony and ocean view, but the ocean view didn't work out unless you hang over the balcony railing and look way off to the right. There is really nothing wrong with the hotel. They do change you a resort fee on top of the room fee. That was unexpected. The […] location is right on Wikiki beach and in the heart of the downtown action. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Stayed over 1 night before our Hawaiian Cruise. Hotel was nice and most of the staff was pleasant.Genuine Expedia guest review
Upgraded to Jr. Suite overlooking pool, beach and ocean. Great views! Nice location on Waikiki beach.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice stay with relaxation and action"
i read reviews abiut this hotel and was worried about the facility and location. However, the location is great, 10 min walk to very active center, and next to green area and natural relaxing beach. im comparison to only crowd and action in Sheraton, Marriott location is much better for both action and relaxation. The facility is dated but true natural […] and like hawaii. We upgraded room to ocean view which offers the best scene of beach. Lanai is so roomy and you can always enjoy the sunset there. Though I can imagine if we had stayed in P tower with only city view, we would think it not worth the money. So be sure to get to K tower with ocean view. The breakfast was not rich in option but every item tasted so good which I rather prefer. The swimming pool is not so big but the view of beach ocean and bar make it up. I guess I will choose Marriott again when I come back. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"one night stay"
stayed on 5th floor loved the view and the poolGenuine Expedia guest review
"Good Location- Needs to be updated"
This hotel is located nicely by the beach and downtown restuarants. The problem is; for the rate of the room, parking, and resort fee it is tough to swallow the bill at the end of the stay. The hotel could use a face lift. Hawaii could go along way to look to Las Vegas styling for the next remodel. Larger glass showers and tubs. Better beds that dont […] squeek.

Vice nice hotel with excellent service, One area that could use a little attention would be pool side service, Good one day, not so good the next.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Trip with parents"
The hotel was great. Perfect location. Lots of places to eat and shop nearby. Very comfortable beds. One of the front desk workers was unfriendly when I had a question about charges on my account, but other than that everyone else was very pleasant. We spent a nice day at the pool and the waiter and bar tender took great care of us.Genuine Expedia guest review
"One step away from bigtime luxury"
This hotel is a very nice, but not super-super-fancy place to stay in Waikiki. The staff are exceptionally helpful, and the views (if you get one) are quite nice, as are the balconies. The bathrooms are a little small & the pools are smaller than I would have liked. Also, the beach is across the street & not the best part of Waikiki. All that said, […] it's a very comfortable place to stay, albeit at the end of Waikiki close to a park where many homeless people live. A sad irony. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Was surprised by an extra charge of $25/day"
hotel is in good location, across from the safe swimming beach, and very close to Sturbucks, since the breakfast at the hotel was super expensive! We walked every night all the way on the strip, and in the morning to the aquarium, which is nearby. The hotel has two ABC's where you can find just about everything! We did not earn any points with our 8 […] night stay, cause the reservation was made thru Expedia.... Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel in good location"
I was only at the hotel one night. It was in a good location and good for business travelers given their set-up (room has a number of outlets for working and charging electronics).Genuine Expedia guest review
It was okay but I was surprised about the extra 25 dollars charged per day for internet and other perks. We only used the internet and didn't use any of the other things due to time. I had two rooms and had prepaid so it was a surprise when I had to pay an extra 300 dollars when I checked out. I asked while I was checking in if I could opt out of the […] extra perks and was told no that it was required that I take it. So beware when checking out on the extra charge. I reserved a king room and got a queen so was kind of disappointed. I booked this hotel due to its location on the beach due to us having a disabled son that has problems walking, well when we arrived we were in rooms that were in the tower that was the farthest from the beach and on the 17th floor, it was difficult at times but we made it work. I was expecting more from this hotel for what I paid. It was a nice room could have been better. staff was very helpful, concierge service was awesome and found us the best deals possible on different activities. They did give me a ocean view instead of a city view but it was a queen and not the king I reserved. Pillows on the bed were to soft had to use several at night. all in all we enjoyed our stay but wish it could have been what we expected. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
It was great! Wish they had more cable TV offerings. TV was often times had signal issues. But over all it was great. Clean room, the size of the room was good. location was great! Had nice restaurant options as well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to the beach but no is a 4 star hotel!!!!'"
I know my standard room but the hotel condition is totally old unbelievable for a Marriott hotel The location is ok but no is a 4 star hotelGenuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel was very close to the beach and stores."
We really enjoyed our stay and we were very close to the beach, stores and Restaurants.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Actually the hotel is next to the beach."
It is really bad about the check in service at this hotel. It need some better management to take care the check in lane especially the amount they charge to stay there.Genuine Expedia guest review
The location is not up there with some of the actual beachfront hotels, and the panhandlers were aggressive. Best thing was Clint the bellman who helped me with a bandaid...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
From the moment we checked in, we felt like this was our second home (actually a lot better). The entire staff of the hotel was friendly and helpful. The only people who were rude were the tourists. I would recommend staying at the Waikiki Marriott to anybody visiting Oahu.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Wish I could of stayed longer"
When I originally booked my trip here I chose a room with a partial ocean view room with 2 queen size beds I thought it should okay. Well, I showed up and checked in they upgrade me (not sure why, no complains) I was pleasantly shocked on how gorgeous our room was! We had a corner "double" ocean view room! We only stayed one night there because we had […] other places we were staying in Hawaii, but if I would of know it was going to be that nice of a room I would of stayed much longer!

"Great location but showing its age"
Overall a good stay. The room was reasonably priced to be on Waikiki beach but could use some updating inside. The views from the balcony more than made up for any wear and tear inside though. If you have a car don't pay to park here, The Banyon next door has 24 hour parking (in and out) for just $15.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice beach across from hotel."
It was a pleasant expereince staying at Waikiki Beach Marriot Resort. When I made the reservations, I accidently chose a room with a king size bed, city view. We infact needed a room with two beds. I explained to the receptionist our situation when we checked in. She looked into the matter and was able to upgrade us to a ocean view room with two queen […] size beds at no extra charge. They also included 5 free tickets for alcoholic drinks free, redeemable at two of thier restaurants. They staff was polite and courteous. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
I would recommend this hotel to anyone. Excellent costumer service! Beautiful hotel and views from there!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Nice hotel next to the beach"
Comfortable room, nice view, and welcoming staff. The one issue was that housekeeping was inconsistent. Sometimes they cleaned the room in the morning. Other times we would return to the room mid afternoon and the room had bit been cleaned. They were. Dry prompt however, when we calledGenuine Expedia guest review
"good location but outdated hotel"
The rooms were very old and not like other marriot hotels that we have stayed in the past. We had a blast in Waikiki, but we will not stay at this hotel in the future. The service was OK, but the location was very convient to walk to the beachGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"DATED HOTEL BUT WAS ACROSS THE STREET FROM BEACH."
THE PROBLEMS STARTED WHEN CHECKING INTO THE HOTEL......THE FIRST WORDS FROM THE DESK PERSON WAS "YOUR RESERVATION WAS MADE BY A THIRD PARTY SERVICE". I ASKED IF THAT WAS GOOD OR BAD AND WAS TOLD THAT I WOULD RECEIVE THE "LEAST DESIRABLE ROOM". WHEN I ASKED WHY, I WAS TOLD BECAUSE THEY DO NOT GET AS MUCH WHEN RESERVATIONS ARE MADE THROUGH A THIRD PARTY. […] THE ROOM WAS VERY UNDESIRABLE! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

I had a wonderful experience at this hotel! They upgraded my room and the view of the beach was beautiful! I would stay here again.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Location, location, location"
The Waikiki Beach Mariott is in the best possible location for an Ohau vacation. Access in and out of the area is convenient. Anything from the beach to church to night life are a cross-walk away. We have stayed at other hotels in this area. There was no easy way in and out of Waikiki. Parking, self or valet was a nightmare. This should be one of expedia's […] VIP hotels.
