What a hole, do not get a room on 8th floor. This is a residents building with some rooms sublet. The furniture was a hundred years old, stench about the same age.

Hi John, I'm so sorry to hear about your experience. I do want to point out that Marina Tower Waikiki does not operate any rooms on the 8th floor. This building does have condos in it that are not affiliated with Marina Tower Waikiki which must be what you booked. Our staff works diligently to ensure our rooms exceed expectations....

Marina Tower is certainly an older style accommodation, however after doing much research, the price was good for a self contained unit, close handy to the beach, Ala Moana Shopping Centre, and being on the 36th floor, our view was lovely. Sadly we couldn't open our window for some fresh air, so had to resort to the A/C. It's not...

Thank you for your review! The photos actually are not fake! The property itself although operating as a hotel is a condo and the units are individually owned so some of the decor may not match the photography. However, many of the rooms do match the style showcased in those photos. Sincerely, Mariah Dailey General Manager

We stayed on 31st floor which was a bit of a pain as most of the time only 1 lift was working & this lift had trouble coping with this amount of tenants.
