We stayed at the courtyard by Marriott King Kamehameha for one night before moving on to our resort. It was very busy in and around the hotel due to the Iron man competition in town. It is great location near the harbor and right on the Main Street for easy shopping and dining in town.

We have walked the inside of the hotel, shopped the attached stores, ok ABC, along with going to the luau that is held there. Very beautiful hotel along with VERY friendly staff. If we did not have a condo on the island, I would consider staying here. It is very convenient to all of the shops downtown and a lot of water activities take off from the pier that is right outside the door.
