Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa has revealed an extraordinary redesign in 2020. Located on the footprint of Queen Lili'uokalani's historic summer homes, the resort pays homage to its storied past by creating indoor-outdoor living spaces where “all could gather in joy and hospitality," in keeping with the Queens' philosophy of Hawaiian hospitality.

Located next to Diamond Head Crater, our Honolulu, Hawaii resort boasts 5.2 oceanfront acres with swaying palm trees and boutique shops. Enjoy the open spaces and modern seating of our recently renovated Nanea Lobby which features our cultural Ka Maka Hinu art piece. Go from work to relaxation in our open-air lobby.

Centrally located in Waikiki, our resort is close to all the attractions that will make your vacation memorable. Head from our beach resort to the nearby Waikiki Aquarium, which features monk seals and reef sharks. Talk to the animals and learn about the indigenous species of the Pacific Islands at the Honolulu Zoo. Experience the USS Arizona, Utah, and Oklahoma memorials at Pearl Harbor nearby.
