I'm a little late making this review but - better late than never, right?
I stayed at the Waikiki Beach Marriott in February 2012 for 8 nights and booked my stay through Priceline. I have visited Waikiki several times and had always saw the excellent location and beautiful decor of the Marriott and knew it could not disappoint. Booking through Priceline we got an excellent rate, and an even better room. Despite our booking through Priceline, we were given a room upgrade and we found ourselves with a huge, double balcony room with 2 King size beds overlooking the ocean with a "partial ocean view". The beds were very comfortable and the room and bathroom very spacious.
The location can't be beat, as it is literally across the street from the beach. Downstairs there is a Seattle's Best Coffee, along with several other nice shops (an ABC store of course!). There is a newly renovated gym with many new pieces of equipment and 2 beautiful pools (and you didn't have to fight for a beach chair at 10:30 am!)
Overall I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone regardless of who they are traveling with. The only downside would be that the wi-fi was only offered in the lobby, however we were able to pick it up occasionally from our room.
