We will be going to Honolulu for about five days. I am undecided which hotel we should stay at.

We stayed at the Marriott Waikiki in July and were very happy there - lovely rooms, great location. I don't know anything about the JW Marriott.

Waikiki Marriott is of course in Waikiki.

JW Marriott is more of a resort & isolated if you don't want any crowds. But, it is about 45 minutes from Honolulu/Waikiki. Traffic in & out of the Leeward side can be tough at times.

If you plan to be at the hotel a lot & want isolation, then JW Marriott may be for you.

If you want typical beach crowds, lots of shopping & restaurants, then stay at Waikiki Marriott. If you plan on touring Oahu a lot, then Waikiki Marriott is better.

Lots of info:
