As the go-to airport shuttle service to Marriott hotel and resort properties on Oahu, we’re excited to draw your attention to one of the newer additions to the brand’s presence in Waikiki. “The Laylow, Autograph Collection” is a hip and modern standout amidst the other hotels in this neck of Honolulu. If this will be your first time staying here you’re in for a very pleasant surprise. But before you step into the upper level lobby of this contemporary property, you need to secure transportation from HNL. The Laylow hotel does not have it’s own shuttle service, but there’s no need to fret as we have you and your entire party covered.
Best Flat Rate Direct Shuttle to The Laylow Hotel from Honolulu International Airport and What Else You Need to Know
Best Way to Get to The Laylow from HNL
Again, The Laylow hotel does not have it’s own airport shuttle service, which leaves you with five options:
- Shared shuttle
- Ride share
- Traditional taxi
- Car rental
- Private transfer
Let’s take a deeper look at these options so that you can make a more informed choice about how to get to The Laylow.
As you may have heard, shared shuttle services from Honolulu Airport are no longer a preferred option. The events of 2020-21 have pretty much put a nail in the coffin of any transfer service that crams dozens of complete strangers into a crowded vehicle. View more on why you should skip shared shuttle services from Honolulu Airport.
Ride share services such as Uber and Lyft are great for getting around town when you’re not in the mood for public transit, and they may even be fine for solo visitors. However, for parties of two or more with a typical luggage load, you will most likely have to cough up extra cash for the XL option which is far from economical. Plus, the ride share pickup zone is not located outside of baggage claim, which makes it a far less convenient option. View more on why you should pass on this option from HNL.
Traditional taxis aren’t really used by visitors anymore, as the cost is variable, they are far less dependable and the vehicles are often outdated, uncomfortable, and in some cases unclean. Plus, after a 6-hour (or longer) flight no one wants to wait around outside of the airport to look for an available cab. For all these reasons visitors demand a better alternative to taxis from HNL.
Car rentals are often a part of the Oahu vacation experience. However, renting one from HNL will eat up an approximate hour of your time as you must take a shuttle to your rental service kiosk from outside of baggage claim, and then wait in line with fellow new arrivals before filling out a gauntlet of paperwork. In addition, do you really want to spend $250 on your first day (average per day rental rate) just to get to Waikiki? Save the car rental for the next day. Helpful reception personnel at The Laylow will be able to advise on your best options.
Everything above brings us to the final and most preferred option for getting from the airport to The Laylow hotel in Waikiki – a direct, private, flat-rate shuttle. Our commercially permitted transfer service is the most cost efficient, expedient, sanitary, comfortable, and convenient choice. We even offer visitors lei greetings for added aloha! Better yet, our low $35 flat rate applies to your entire party (up to four – contact us for larger parties) and all normal luggage loads.
