Traveling to Oahu and would like a Marriott property on Waikiki. Would you recommend Westin Moana or The Royal Hawaiian?

Great history on Royal Hawaiian. During WWII, it was the rest station for submarine crews. I understand there was a poker game that lasted 4 years. As one crew would go to sea, another crew would buy in

The Royal Hawaiian is very classic Hawaii - great location and definitely recommend.

All things being equal, the Royal Hawaiian. (I go to Hawaii once a month and have stayed at all the Marriott properties).

Royal Hawaiian or Sheraton Waikiki

Highly recommend not spending all your time in Waikiki

Hey fish fam, need an expectations level set. Ambassador status, staying at a St Regis for honeymoon. Concierge emailed to ask the occasion ahead of time, and we mentioned again at valet, check in, and breakfast - haven’t gotten anything other than “congrats.” No upgrade. No information at check in re: amenities or “rituals” (e.g., 3 days in found out that there is a daily bloody Mary tasting - would’ve been nice to know). Am I overreacting to have hoped for something, anything celebratory?
