The first night we stayed at the marina tower we hardly slept because the elevator sounded like an aeroplane taking off. We asked to be moved also to a room with a better view, this was no problem, the manager and his wife were extremely helpful. The only drawback at this hotel is the elevator and only one worked so...

The view is absolutely amazing so take the highest floor possible. Comfort bed. A bit long waiting time for the elevator. Great location, the ocean is about 5 minutes walking. Plenty restaurants around. Red Lobster is just across the street, very qualified food

We enjoyed our stay at the Marina tower. This place is perfect for a smaller budget ! we hoped for friendly staff and we got it!! We stayed for a week and had no problems except for a slow elevator, and still not too much of a inconvenience. We enjoyed the views from our room. I would definitely stay here...

Although there a lot of poor reviews about this hotel, we were pleasantly surprised. We had a room on the 26th floor. Initially one lift was working, but the second lift was repaired and working by the time we left. The room was triangular - there are 4 rooms on each of the 39 floors. Each room on the upper...

This was a pretty cheap hotel that I enjoyed. The most obvious thing to note is that we did not stay there a whole lots, ITS HAWAII! Our place was fully furnished with a kitchenette. I heeded all the review regarding the elevator but we got by with 1 of 2 elevators working. Valet parking was ridiculous but you could...

We stayed at the Marina Tower before a cruise. Overall we were very pleased. The view from our room was awesome. The location was an easy walk to the beach. Complimentary happy hour was a plus. Friendly staff. Close to the bus route out to Pearl Harbor.

None of our booking information mentioned that we needed to check in next door at the Equis. The reception at the marina tower was constantly unmanned. Lucky there was a guy wandering around and we asked him! On check in we were given no information regarding use or location of the pool. One lift was out for maintenance and the...

Although the kitchenette and Big Bed was great, and it's location was good, it's located across the street from Red Lobster and Out Back Steak House, and in close walking distance to the Ala Moana Shopping Center, keep you expectations low, as to not be too disappointed. The rooms are a bit dated, the tv was a blue screen for...

I travelled to Hawaii for the Spartan race trifecta weekend. I booked this room a few months back and after reading reviews was very apprehensive about what I was going to find. Upon arrival I was greeted by the friendly valet who offered to hold the bags downstairs so I didn't have to lug them around if we couldn't check...

“Consider the problem of a single elevator access, but the view is better the higher you go.”
  • Lovely view from 39th floor.
  • Surprise view from the glass-walled elevator!
  • Sunset from 39th floor.
  • Sun conveniently set between two buildings.
  • Colors of sunset softly bathe the city.
  • Rainbow view as the elevator descended.
