Hawaii's Waikiki Beach Marriott

My faith has been restored in major chain hotels! Last months crappy room at the Vegas Hilton, makes today's room at the Waikiki Beach Marriott seem like paradise. Well maybe it's because I'm in Paradise / Hawaii.

Check-in was smooth at the Marriott. The reservation was made by my travel agent, via Pleasant Holiday's. It included a welcome lei at the airport, 5 nights in a partial ocean view room, $25 per day resort credit, and a car for 5 days. Cost me $1200 including tax, and the taxes here in Hawaii are steep. Not a great price, but a good one.

Why the Marriott? My Wife and I lived here on Oahu for almost 4 years and we have been all over the Islands. And two of our favorite restaurants are right here in the Marriott, DK Steakhouse and Sansei.

The front desk said our room was "recently upgraded", last time I heard that line I was very disappointed, but today it was true. Our room is very comfortable and well appointed with a view of Diamond Head and the slice of the Pacific and Waikiki Beach.
