Located in the heart of Waikiki
High daily resort fee
Sitting along Waikiki Beach's coveted sands, the Sheraton Waikiki is one of the larger hotels on the Honolulu shore. That can be both good and bad. On one hand, recent guests say there is plenty to do both on-site and off. On the other hand, some visitors say this hotel can feel crowded – not only are there dozens of travelers milling around, but this Sheraton's proximity to the convention center makes it popular with business travelers, too. However, many visitors are willing to brave the crowds for access to the Sheraton Waikiki's excellent location in the heart of the action. In terms of amenities, there are two oceanfront pools and cultural activities such as hula lessons and arts and crafts on-site. The hotel also features a few dining options to choose from, though dozens of restaurants sit within walking distance of the front door. Plus, members of the Marriott Bonvoy program can earn and redeem points here.

Critic Reviews


What makes the Sheraton Waikiki stand out is its sheer size — it has a slew of features, including bustling shops and nightlife venues packed with both guests and Honolulu locals.



Designed for the convention crowd, it's big and busy; the ballroom, one of Oahu's largest, hosts convention expos, concerts, and weddings.



This is not the place to book if you're looking for a peaceful getaway. What you do get: views of the ocean (available in most rooms), the Helumoa Playground pool for kids, and an infinity pool for adults.
