Search ASIA Travel Tips .com Latest Travel News Send to Friend Friday, 5 June 2009

Marriott has opened its first Courtyard by Marriott hotel in Hawaii.

The 400-room Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach is centrally located and within comfortable walking distance to sunbathing and swimming off Waikiki Beach, shopping and exciting nightlife. It is also a short distance to visitor attractions such as the Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium, Diamond Head and Ala Moana Center.

The hotel will operate under a franchise agreement with Lodging Capital Partners LLC, owner of the property; Outrigger Hotels & Resorts will manage the hotel.

“Courtyard has a loyal following worldwide and we are excited to introduce the brand to Waikiki,” said Ed Hubennette, vice president, North Asia, Hawaii and South Pacific, Marriott International. “This is a wonderful property, budget-friendly and boutique-style chic in the heart of Waikiki. We are confident that it will resonate with Courtyard’s leisure and business travelers.”

Formerly known as The Wyland Waikiki, the hotel underwent an extensive multi-million dollar makeover in 2007 that included renovation of all guest rooms, public areas and grounds. It developed a good following among travelers seeking full-service accommodations at Waikiki hotels at a moderate price.

“We are building on the success that the hotel has already achieved as The Wyland,” said Steve Kisielica, principal, Lodging Capital Partners, LLC. “Reflagging it as a Courtyard brings an unmatched global brand and distribution system to the hotel and a name that is top-of-mind with consumers and synonymous with first-class service and standards. We are excited about our relationship with Marriott and the potential it holds for the hotel’s future.”

The 307 guest rooms and 93 one-bedroom suites at Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach feature an island chic color scheme with sage cream, rattan, dark woods and a majority with private lanai (balcony), pillow top beds, 26” flat screen high-definition TV, high-speed Internet cable, refrigerator, coffeemaker with complimentary coffee, and cable TV with pay-per-view movies.

Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach is offering a special US$129 room rate per night. The offer is good through December 22, 2009 and subject to availability. Restrictions may apply.

The stylish lobby offers separate, yet open, nooks for impromptu meetings, casual conversations over coffee, cocktails or cognac. For dining, Spada Bar & Restaurant offers casual Italian fare and is open for breakfast and dinner with outdoor patio seating, and KIMOBEAN Hawaiian Coffee Company features grab and go hot and cold beverages, sandwiches and snacks for those in a rush.

Additional guest amenities include a business center with complimentary services including printing, high-speed Internet and wireless Internet data ports in the lobby; sun and pool deck; two swimming pools; Spa Pure day spa; a 24-hour fitness facility; and an entertainment room with a 65” flat screen TV and two Xbox game stations.

For small conferences, the hotel has an intimate size boardroom with fixed seating for 12, additional viewer seating for up to 20, a 52” wall mounted screen with full audio Internet access, and a wall mounted whiteboard and easel.

The hotel general manager is Jim Heather, and the director of sales and marketing is Roy Cordeiro.
