We stayed at the Hale Koa (military hotel) on Waikiki and I remember it being close to the Marriott. You can’t really go wrong along the strip on Waikiki beach, beautiful hotels/views/beach. Eat at Roy’s the night while you’re there, amazing seafood and sushi! No trip to Maui huh? That was my fav island in Hawaii! Enjoy, you’re going to have a blast!

We stayed at the Fairmont Orchid two years ago and enjoyed it, although we only stayed one night before moving down by the volcano. It was not quite as posh as I was expecting but I think it’s a very solid choice. If you haven’t signed up for the Fairmont President’s Club yet, you should do so as it’s free to sign up and it gets you free internet use, as well as some other perks.

Alan Wong’s is awesome–very good choice. On the Big Island, you might want to try Merriman’s.

Edited to add: I have never stayed at Turtle Bay, but haven’t heard great things about it. I asked FH, who was born and raised in Honolulu, and he agreed that 6 nights is a long time to spend at Turtle Bay–the island is small enough that it’s really easy to get around in a day, and you could stay somewhere nicer and still visit the North Shore. His recommendation would be the Ihilani, which still has the advantage of being outside of Waikiki.

@Mrs. Meowerson:  Maybe “posh” wasn’t quite the right word, the rooms just seemed a little old-school/dated to me and I like something a bit more modern. For example, on our last trip to Hawaii we went to Kauai and stayed at the Grand Hyatt, which was overall more to my liking than the Fairmont.

It is still very nice. Our room and bathroom were quite large (well, from a NYC perspective anyway!) and we loved the pool area. Again, we only stayed one night so there were a lot of things we didn’t check out (restaurants, etc.) but we did enjoy our stay.

I stayed at the Waikiki Marriott for about a week a few years ago. I thought it was a really nice hotel and the fact the ocean was across the street was a plus. There was lots of shops and resturaunts in walking distance.

All nice hotels. The fairmount orchid is nice. You’ll enjoy it. Actually all are good choices. When you’re on the Big Island you chould check out Huggo’s in Ali’i drive if you get the chance. Parkingthere is terrible but if you make your reservations early (and request for a seat on the water) you can’t beat the beautiful sunset in the ocean! The drive from the airport kinda makes you feel like your landing on the moon (lot’s of lava).
