Kauai but the best property is the Hyatt.

Been to Oahu and Maui. On Oahu, the Royal Hawaiian is a cool historic hotel down in Waikiki but Waikiki is way too swarmed with tourists/crowds. North Shore is way more enjoyable and the Marriott near the PCC isn’t anything special (it does have a great pool for kids) but is a great base for hanging around up there. Maui has Marriotts either in Kaanapali or Wailea. Kaanapali is similar to Waikiki in the crowds but there are some cool places to explore in Lahaina or further north on the island. Wailea is super bougie but is right by Kihei which was awesome. Wailea will be a better base of operations for going to Haleakala and Road to Hana/Oheo Gulch

Second the royal hawaiian if you can use a suite night. Just for the experience - it has tons of history.

Maui. Ritz Kapalua. Next question

^Ritz in general is a mediocre brand. For the price/points, you might as well get a St. Regis which tend to be significantly better. Ritz doesn't even honor Marriott status, so no free breakfast or suite upgrades.

Courtyard by Marriott Waikiki Beach

Haha I “lived” there for 2 months this year and miss it. No silly resort fee and rather cheap compared to the island. It’s not luxury , but if you’re looking to be outside it’s awesome.

Oahu, Royal Hawaiian if you can put up with Waikiki (I happen to love it for the walkability to good restaurants). Maui, Ritz Carlton. Yes it’s secluded, in the rainier/windier part of the island but you’ll be fine. Kauai, Grand Hyatt Poipu. Good location, decent odds of monk seals or turtles on your beach, even if it isn’t a Marriott property. Big Island, the Auberge Mauna Lani. Renovated just before COVID and just delightful. Far from the Hilo side though so you may want to consider a night there if you want to spend real time at the Kilauea volcano (which is amazing). The Sheraton Keauhou Bay is ancient and feels like it’s ancient but the manta rays show up there every night…which is awesome. Lanai, either Four Seasons is nice, but I prefer the Sensei for how unique it is. Also they’ll pick you up in a plane in Honolulu as part of the room rate, which is a nice touch. Molokai, there are no great choices but you’re likely going there to get off the grid or be a fugitive from the law anyway. It was a random Expedia choice for me. Niihau, you’ll have to see as part of a guided helicopter visit anyway. Have never been. Kahoolawe, can’t go there unless you’re military and even then your trip may be ruined by unexploded munitions. Haven’t been there either.
