The Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa is a large resort property that comprises the entire 2500 block of Waikiki’s world famous Kalakaua Avenue (at 2552 Kalakaua Ave, specifically). It’s bookended by Ohau and Paoakalani Avenue, making it one of the most impressive and convenient accommodations on the south shore of the island. Your choice to stay there is a wise one, and you want to continue with your advantageous picks by choosing the right airport shuttle service to get to the resort.

Best Way to Get to the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa from HNL and What to Expect Upon Arrival
Private, Direct, Flat-Rate Shuttle from HNL
While the property’s position between Ohau and Paoakalani Avenue makes it super convenient as far as Waikiki vacation experiences are concerned, it also make the hotel one of the last stops on the HNL shared shuttle route. Save time (and per person costs) by skipping this consideration, and also throw Uber/Lyft under the bus. Ride-hailing services are a pain to get to from HNL baggage claim, and if you have more than two people in your party with a full luggage load you’ll probably have to book an Uber/Lyft XL. The latter inflates your cost exponentially.
What about renting a car from HNL? While a car rental can make your time Oahu even more fun and efficient, it’s not a good idea to rent one from HNL. One of the big reasons is the initial expense, and we don’t just mean the crazy cost of renting the vehicle for your first night. While we love nearly everything about the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa, the price for parking for registered guests is outrageous:
Parking is pricey here…
Why spend an estimated $300 (for car rental) for your first day on Oahu (seeing as you won’t start exploring until the next) and an additional $45-50 parking fee? When you consider that the cost to park at your own hotel for just one-day is more expensive than our private HNL shuttle service (see below) it simply doesn’t make sense to rent a vehicle from the airport. Save it for the next morning, and save yourself some time along with cold-hard cash.
Instead, book your private, direct, flat-rate (just $40!) shuttle from HNL to the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa. We pick you up from right outside of HNL baggage claim, offer a lei greeting (if desired), and will load your luggage while you slide into your clean, comfortable, spacious, air-conditioned chariot. From there we whisk you off to the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa with no stops, unless you want to. Our sleek new Sienna minivan will usher you into the lobby of the beautiful property. From there you’re time in paradise truly begins!
What to Expect on Arrival
Pickup from HNL is easy with our service. However, what happens if you arrive too early for check-in? You’ll be happy to know that the resort is very accommodating to new arrivals. You can hang-out in the ridiculously expansive and vibrant lobby where you’ll be greeted with ALOHA (literally) and take your very first photos of your vacation on Oahu. The lobby art, carvings, and sculptures will have photo-enthusiasts easily enthralled prior to check-in. In addition, the property is packed with shopping and other amenities to enjoy before you step into your temporary home in Waikiki.
All you need to do is give us 24-hours notice before the arrival of your flight. Once booked, we’ll pick you and your party up from the airport and take you directly to the resort. Call us at 1.800.929.1219 or complete the form found here.
