Do You Have to Stay at the Waikiki Beach Marriott Resort & Spa?
No, it’s not required to stay at the property. Feel free to stay wherever you’d like on the island! A lot of people stayed at hotels nearby, some rented Air BnB with other LOSTies. Do whatever works for you!
The advantage to staying at the Marriott is several of our events are held there and it’s the loading location for events that aren’t. For example, we’ll depart for the filming location tours from here, as well as for Dharmaville and the church for the group photo.
However, there is bus/trolley transportation all over Waikiki Beach that can get you to the Marriott fairly easily.
I Already Booked with the Previous Host Hotel, the Hilton. Is That a Problem?
Absolutely not! We only moved the event locations because the Hilton was not able to negotiate with us due to lower attendance. We picked the Marriott due to its close proximity to the Hilton. To get to the Marriott from the Hilton for our events, all you have to do is go out the main lobby doors, turn left, go over one block and turn right on Ohau Avenue. The Marriott will be on your left.
