Marriott is debuting the AC Hotel by Marriott brand in Honolulu, Hawaii — and it’s pretty affordable using cash or Marriott Bonvoy points.

Here’s what you need to know about this new property.

AC Hotel by Marriott Honolulu Now Open

AC Hotel by Marriott Honolulu has 112 rooms, all featuring turndown kits, platform beds, and storage space. Each floor features a hydration station.

Amenities include a fitness center with Peloton bikes and coworking spaces like AC Lobby, AC Library, and AC Lounge. AC Kitchen will serve breakfast dishes, while AC Lounge will serve tapas. The hotel also features a speakeasy, Yours Truly, serving craft cocktails.

“We’re thrilled to bring AC Hotels by Marriott to Oahu, providing a comprehensive and effortless stay in the heart of Honolulu’s prime metropolis,” said Patricia Chang Moad, Project Executive and VP of Continental Assets Management. “Designed with intellect and inspired interiors, we offer ‘everything you need and nothing you don’t’ with a commitment to ultimate comfort and gateway access to the best of the city for business or leisure travel.”

Bottom Line:

This is AC Hotel by Marriott’s first property in Honolulu. The brand focuses on providing a “seamless guest experience” by offering signature features such as the AC Lounge, which combines work and play. You’ll find AC Hotels in 32 countries and territories, and the brand has more than 225 hotels currently open.

How To Book the AC Hotel by Marriott Honolulu

AC Hotel by Marriott Honolulu is now open for guests and is part of the Marriott Bonvoy loyalty program, making it easy to earn and redeem Marriott Bonvoy points here.

Rates are a steal — especially given Honolulu’s pricey reputation. You’ll find cash stays as low as $199 this winter and award nights for as few as 48,000 Marriott Bonvoy points.

Fortunately, it’s not difficult to earn Marriott Bonvoy points. This is true even if you don’t stay with the brand often because you can transfer American Express Membership Rewards and Chase Ultimate Rewards points to Marriott at a 1:1 ratio. (Both issuers sometimes offer limited-time transfer bonuses, giving you more points toward a free night.)

Marriott also offers several co-branded credit cards, all offering large welcome bonuses (after completing minimum spending requirements) and some form of elite status. You’ll also earn bonus points for spending with Marriott.

Final Thoughts

The new AC Hotel in Honolulu has many of the same amenities you’d find in a luxury hotel: spacious rooms, multiple dining options, meeting spaces, a fitness center, and even a speakeasy. Given the affordable price point, this hotel is a real sweet spot for travelers looking for a higher-end hotel without breaking the bank!
