Sharaton Waikiki VS Mariott Waikiki

Hi! My finance and I are planning our wedding and honeymoon in Honolulu and we are wondering which hotel is the better pick. We want something romantic and pretty, nightlife doesnt matter, just a nice room with a nice view. Any suggestions?

Neither the Marriott nor the Sheraton is "pretty or romantic".

Hotels i would look at are the Outrigger Reef, Outrigger Waikiki and the New Otani Kaimana Beach Hotel.

You can use these links to research.

If the Marriott and the Sheraton were the only two choices, I would probably take the Sheraton based on location.

I agree with everything in the post directly above :) both the alternate suggestions first, and the Sheraton for location and pool ammenities if these two are really your only considerations.

Listen to you people! Certainly some hotels are not "typical honeymoonish," but I would not put a price-tag on romance. More expensive doesn't mean more romantic. For some, romance is camping under the stars!

Sheraton has a great location but it is a bit big to be "romantic".

The Marriott is also not romantic and isn't as well placed as the Sheraton.

For romantic, you might look at the New Otani Hotel. It is very quiet and romantic and just outside the busy areas of Waikiki.

As a Marriott loyalist, I still have to agree with this thread. The Marriott Waikiki is not 'honeymoon' romantic. Have you thought about somewhere other than Waikiki? Somewhere more quiet like the JW Marriott in Ko Olina, very pretty but no nightlife? I'm sure there are other places as well that I'm not familiar with. Depends greatly on your budget. I would pick the Outrigger Reef over the Marriott for the same price range. Can't tell you about the Sheraton.

Congratulations!
