Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa Completes $28 Million Renovation

­­Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa has completed a $28 million guest room renovation project to its oceanfront Kealohilani Tower. Key aspects of the 605 redesigned guest rooms and suites include wireless high-speed Internet access, a 37-inch flat-screen and high definition TV, and a granite-top television console with a wood-framed headboard that includes adjustable reading lights and remote jack packs to easily connect digital technology to the TV. New features also include a coral fabric-covered bed bench, ergonomic desk task chair, and patio chaise lounge, chair and table on private lanai, and Marriott’s “Revive” bed and linen collection.

Green initiatives include retrofitting rooms with water saving components, and tinted windows in all guest rooms and public space to help reduce the heat load as well as the demand for increased air conditioning.
