    Exceptional

    I liked the fact that it is close to major conference centre like the convention Centre, Hilton and about 20minutes walk to Sheraton and the central market and major shopping centres. I stayed in the room where I could view the Ocean. You can also view images of the city as you use the escalator. The bed is quite comfortable and often well laid.With the availability of fridge and cooking utensils, microwave and stove, you can really enjoy your stay at minimal cost for feeding, even with members of your family.I will like to use that hotel again if I travel to Honolulu. In fact, it was my second time there because the price is also very reasonable. I also like the fact that it is bed and breakfast and you do not need to worry about breakfast. I also like the fact that there is internet services in the rooms. This is really great! You can keep in touch at no additional cost. That is not a bad idea. They can also arrange for your airport pickup depending on your ability to pay.

    I think it will be great if all the rooms have hair dryers. Given the height of Marina Tower, it will be great if the lifts are always working to avoid congestion in the morning hours. I do not know if they have a Gym because on both occasions I was very busy. If not, this will not be a bad idea. If there can be a little kitchen from which to order for food when needed,especially for those on honeymoon or those how will be too busy to cook. However, there are restaurants very close to the hotel. I will also like the hotel to have cable TV to follow news and entertainment outside the US..

    Superb

    The hotel is close to Waikiki and shopping as well as on a major transit route.It is an eclectic old boutique establishment with a staff who are there to help you. This was the best hotel service I have ever received. Management went out of their way to store bags for us as well as arrange transportation and look up information on destinations for us. The price was less than the big name neighbors, but the personal services given were priceless when it came to saving time and getting to several destinations such as Pearl Harbor, Atlantis Submarine and the many fine dining establishments within walking distance of the hotel. A funky but clean and nicely appointed place with great service!

    The view is not the greatest, we could see the boat harbor and canal but not much of the ocean.The continental breakfast was a little skimpy. However; the great service and price over rode those concerns. And, right down the street a couple of blocks was the Snapper restaurant where you could get a very nice breakfast of fried home potatoes, eggs, toast or hotcakes for $2.95

    Hotel had reasonable location for activities around Waikiki. I enjoyed the daily WSJ

    Rooms were rather small, free breakfast was bare minimum and I normally didn't bother

    Fabulous

    The view. They put us on the 38th floor in the Marina tower, and it was amazing. Also, the location is great, walk to the beach and good restaurants and an ABC store are on the same block.

    The fridge was dirty and smelly when we checked in...but, I told the front desk and they cleaned it up right away.

    It helped, I'm sure, that for whatever reason, they voluntarily upgraded us to a better room before our arrival, but that in itself is a tribute to their way of doing business. We had a view of Diamond Head one way, of the surfers and beach and harbor another ... in great walking distance from good restaurants (we recommend the Singha Thai just 2 blocks away). The room was spacious and comfortable, and the staff we encountered (with only one slightly surly exception at the main desk on the morning shift) were gracious and friendly and helpful to the max. We loved our stay thoroughly.

    The front desk staff was wonderfully attentive. The views were amazing. The king bed had a memory foam topper. Free WIFI in the hotel lobby and free wired internet in the room. Convenient to most everything in Waikiki.

    Internet did not work in the room. I had a webinar in the AM and was forced to go to the lobby to conduct the webinar. The lobby was loud and had no available outlets. The bed was horrible. The mattress was old, soft and lumpy.

    Equus and Marina Towers are older hotels, so they are not as modern and sophisticated as some. However, we were very comfortable. It was positioned close to Waikiki Beach, shops and transport. Most of the staff we dealt with were very friendly. It was only a 2 night stay and quite satisfactory for the time we were there. The view from the room on 24th floor as awesome!

    When I enquired about tours the older gentleman at the counter did not offer any assistance. The lifts were slow and room had minimum extras.
