I just came back from Kauai a month ago.

I stayed at the Hilton because I have award points there and I thought the hotel and grounds were great. But we also visited the Marriott in Lihue to take stand-up paddle board lessons. If you have a choice, I would select Marriott in Lihue because they have a nice beach, that is safe for swimming. Also the grounds and pool area is superior to the Hilton.

On a good swimming beach

Restaurants/shops in walking distance

Better traffic situation, in and out

Fantastic pool

Nicer grounds

More variety of restaurants onsite and within a few minutes walk

Beach activities - rent surfboards, kayaks.

It's a no-brainer to me

I too would say the Marriott. It is right across from our condo and we spend lots of time over there walking the beach and eating at Duke's.

There is also shopping nearby along with a few good places to eat (Kalapaki Beach Hut, Kapapaki Joe's)
