Hyatt or Westin

We have ruled out the Sheraton because for us, the property is too plain and some of the pictures of the rooms look dated, etc. We want a nice property that has nice restaurants, nice oceanfront room views and at least one nice, casual, laid back bar to hang out at at night. I know we will be busy during the day with activities, but there will be a day or so we want to hang out at the beach (not the pool so much) and have drinks, read a book and just relax and look at the beautiful ocean. Any thoughts on which hotel would be best? Need to book this week. Also, we have 11 nights, is it best to do 3 in Oahu and 7 in Maui or 4 in Oahu and 6 in Maui? Have a great day and thank you!

They are both fine luxury hotels-if you like good beach, Westin is your hotel, this is not to say Westin desn't have swimming pools-they have 5 of them, a couple of them ar for adults only. if, on the other hand, you want to hang out on the swimming pools, do not mind walking 10 minutyes to a good beach, then Hyatt is your hotel-we have stayed at both, we just returned from the Westin-this was our 13th.stay there, I just booked our next Fubruary stay t the Westin-we also like the central location, the Whaler's Village with the ABC store is a great convenioence. The restaurant scene also is better at Westin, Hula Grill, Lelilani's than at the Hyatt.

You will be happy with either-we were at the Hyatt last year.

You won't be disappointed with either. I am a Westin fan. Click on the picture next to this. It is the view from our Premium Dlx Ocean View. It is in the Beach Tower which is closer to the water. Any questions, let me know. We will be back for our 4th stay in 6 years come this Sept.

alumnus pretty much nailed it - if it's the beach you want, you'll be happier with the Westin. The only downside there is that the pool scene tends to attract more families so the pool area can be a bit crazy. And you will also enjoy the proximity to Whalers Village. The Hula Grill and Leilani's both have great casual bars where you can sit and enjoy the sunset. And walk down to the Sheraton one evening and take in the sunset cliff diving show from their beachside bar. Best Rumrunner on the planet!
