“Our first 6 nights in Honolulu”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 30, 2013

We had booked our first night in Honolulu in advance. We stayed at the Courtyard by Marriott in Waikiki. We arrived on the hotel shuttle bus from the airport. Our plan was to find somewhere cheaper for the remainder of our stay. This proved difficult as the main local accommodation agency closed for the weekend on Friday evening. We asked at the Courtyard reception desk if they had any vacancies. Fortunately, they arranged for us to stay a further 5 nights at a reduced rate. Our room was very nice with a balcony. There were lots of restaurants nearby and several lovely beaches within walking distance. There is also a pool but who needs that when there is the sea? Local buses were reliable, cheap and plentiful. We spent a day at Pearl Harbour, travelled to the other side of the island, visited a volcanic crater and went on the open top “hop on, hop off” bus. Honolulu is surprisingly “built up”. All the hotel staff were very helpful and friendly. There is an excellent coin operated laundrette in the hotel.

Great Waikiki location, but this property is at the lower levels of the Marriott system. Obviously it was something else and Marriott did a conversion, but not very well (I am a very proud Marriott patron so this isn't a vendetta review.) Maybe having been to so many great Marriott's the condition of this hotel left a greater impact. It's tired, worn and dated. There are basic repairs needed and some basic training to staff missing. Don't get a street room, the noise is horrendous !

This was not the nicest Marriott I have stayed in but the it was clean, the staff was great and the location was perfect. It was within easy walking distance to all the high end shops and multiple restaurants. About a 1/2 mile walk to the beach through a well-traveled area. Not a scenic location.

The pool was small but nice. One must keep in mind, this is a Courtyard not a resort and you will be fine.

Room Tip: Probably should request a room not overlooking the main street and away from the pool.

The place is centrally located in the heart of busy Waikiki. A few steps away from the beach, very accessible to food and bars! Overall a great place to stay. "Clean rooms and friendly staff" looking forward on our next visit this coming September.

The hotel was beautiful and warming, I feel at home right away. The pool was fantastic and the snack area was really cute. Checking in was a little hassle but it was partially our fault. In general, I can't wait to go back!

This is a very average Marriott. The room was small but clean and well appointed. The staff was very courteous and helpful. The room charge was not excessive for the area. It was an easy walk to the beach. We did not use the restaurant. The property is small with little outdoor area but really you go here for the price and access to Waikiki. The $32 a day car parking charge was a surprise and unusual for a Marriott.

When I checked in, I was told I was being upgraded to a suite due to my Marriott Platinum status. I was put into the Royal Hawaiian Tower on the 2nd Floor!! Terrible room. Was in real need of a renovation. The room was fairly large but the bathroom was incredibly small. The shower was so small I could barely turn around in it. I had a corner room which meant I had roads/cars on two sides. Virtually no natural light and no ocean in sight. The staff is really pleasant and helpful, but they could not make up for a horrible room. I stayed the first night because I was too tired to move but checked out the next morning and moved I to a much nicer hotel with an ocean view for the same price with less expensive parking. Could not recommend this hotel. Disappointing for a Marriott property.
