U.S. News Review

This member of the Marriott portfolio receives mixed reviews from its clientele. Recent travelers love the lobby shops at The Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, not to mention the hotel's proximity to Waikiki Beach and Diamond Head. Others complain that the accommodations are starting to show signs of wear and tear and aren't worth the rather lofty room rates. You'll have to be the judge. The hotel's 1,310 rooms are decked out in warm neutral hues and feature Marriott's comfy Revive bedding, and guest bathrooms feature marble floors and granite countertops. Plus all accommodations come with their own lanai (the Hawaiian term for balcony) that offers views varying from a cityscape to a partial or premium oceanfront view. During your stay, you'll have access to two outdoor pools and a whirlpool, as well as the on-site fitness center. The Waikiki Beach Marriott also houses several restaurants serving anything from fresh seafood to classic Italian fare. And because of its brand ties, this resort participates in the Marriott Rewards loyalty program.

Critic Reviews


“The Marriott Waikiki delivers both what you'd expect from the reliable chain — comfortable beds, consistent service, clean rooms — and more than you'd expect — a great sushi restaurant and lovely spa on-site, and service that goes above and beyond your typical mega resort.”
