Your sniffly nose will be happy to hear that the Marriott in Hawai‘i offers allergy-free guest rooms. They're the first in the islands and among the first in the nation to make the dust-free move.
But we're talking more than just dust-free. Hotel rooms will be free of dander and dust-mites, too. Rooms on the 17th floor and presidential suites get the ultimate allergy-friendly environment, starting with the air quality. A state-of-the-art air purification system is installed in each room and creates air quality that's four times cleaner than the threshold for asthma patients. Mico-fiber hypoallergenic pillowcases and mattress covers eliminate dust, dust-mites and dander commonly associated with bedding.
All Marriott resort hotels in the islands have taken a greener and cleaner approach to guest rooms, including the JW Marriott Ihilani Resort & Spa. That one's located on the west side of O‘ahu, a 45-minute drive from the hotel hub of Waikīkī. The spa, though, is the first and only spa facility in the United States to be entirely allergy-free.
There's no question that this added service will cost guests a bit more in the end. But the higher room rates or added fees may be worth it. Imagine not having to lug a box of tissue around your hotel room or waking up and being able to breathe! Having allergies isn't fun, and when on your dream vacation, it's a total party pooper. So enjoy your stay next time you're in the islands and opt for the allergy-free rooms instead. I know I will!
