Residence Inn by Marriott debuts in Hawaii

Marriott International has opened Hawaii’s first Residence Inn by Marriott in Maui Wailea.

“We are thrilled to unveil Residence Inn Maui Wailea, not only because it marks the brand’s debut in Hawaii, but because it signifies Residence Inn’s expansion into more leisure destinations,” said Diane Mayer, Residence Inn vice president and global brand manager.

“Residence Inn is the ideal hotel brand for Maui and its consumers who travel from distant places as well as from neighbouring islands.

“As the leader in the extended stay category, the brand combines the best of conventional hotels with signature features that meet the needs of every type of travel circumstance – families; friend getaways; special occasions and romantic Rendezvous. Residence Inn offers guests the flexibility to enjoy their stay their way.”


Set against a contemporary Hawaiian motif, the all-suite hotel consists of studio, one and two bedroom offerings.

Each suite boasts spacious living zones and fully equipped kitchens.

The upscale furnishings; deluxe bedding; flat screen TVs; functional work surfaces, and generous lanais (balconies) that open to a views of the ocean or mountainside — all provide the comfort and flexibility for guests to feel at home in paradise.

The Great Room leads to the outdoor living area where guests will enjoy the outdoor pool and hot tub and the patio bar with fire pits.

The property contains 1,800 square feet of indoor function space, which breaks out into the Molokai and Molokini meeting rooms, and a lush green lawn for outdoor special events.

The 410 square-foot Boardroom is complete with state-of-the-art audio and visual equipment and designed to accommodate business meetings.
