A local hotel in true Honolulu near shopping and the beach

Totally revamped and refreshingly unpretentious, the two-tower Ala Moana Hotel is an island institution. Ala Moana Hotel is a favorite of Hawaii's neighbor island visitors who love the feel of being just outside of Waikiki. Enjoy front-door shopping, great rates and a short walk to an enormous beach. Ala Moana is one block from the Hawaii Convention Center and attracts groups from the mainland. The hotel's 36 floors and more than 1,000 rooms hardly keep Ala Moana a secret, but a surprising find amidst the pack.

Highlights
  • Spend the day at Hawaii's largest shopping center with 300 shops and restaurants located next to the hotel
  • Rumours, one of Honolulu's oldest nightclubs catering to all ages is located onsite
  • Enjoy a location free from the chaos of Waikiki, yet walking distance to attractions
Location

Straddling Waikiki and the central shopping district of Honolulu, the Ala Moana Hotel offers the best of both worlds. Hawaii's largest shopping center located next door offers nearly 300 shops and restaurants and connects visitors to additional shopping centers within a mile stretch. The Hawaii Convention Center is a block away, as well as the enormous Ala Moana Beach Park--two miles of white-sand beach, jogging trails and tennis courts.

Rooms

A recent multi-million dollar upgrade to the hotel makes rooms feel fresh and modern. Enjoy stellar Waikiki and ocean views, complimentary wireless Internet, refrigerator, in-room safe, air-conditioning and more. Some rooms also feature a private balcony.

Dining

For casual family dining at the hotel, try the Plantation Café, which serves a daily buffet breakfast. Next door at Ala Moana Center, choose from more than 75 eateries ranging from Starbucks and sandwich shops to fine dining. Special destinations include Panya Bistro, Mariposa, Marketplace Café, Pineapple Room and Longhi's.

Very nice hotel in a convenient location

I stayed at this hotel for a few days in early April 2014. If you like the Ala Moana area, then this hotel is for you. The room was clean and comfortable - plus free wifi that worked reasonably well for checking email and maps. The hotel contains some restaurants - but I did not eat at any of them. The hotel had plenty of elevators to take you to your floor (I believe there are nine in total). The hotel is very close to the Ala Moana beach park and connected by a "sky bridge" to the nearby shopping mall. It also has parking for what seems to be a reasonable price for the area.

The nearby shopping mall contains a place called Shirokiya that has all kind of Asian food, especially Japanese. It's like a Japanese-themed food court. Furthmore, it includes a beer garden that features Japanese beers for inexpensive prices.

Convenient and good value

I always have a good stay at the hotel. It is convenient to many locations, staff is usually always very friendly. Usually do not dine there but the new restaurants seems to be an upgrade from the past which is nice.

Best location for people with local connections

Every time I go back to Honolulu I stay at the Ala Moana Hotel for various reasons: Easy for my local friends to pick me up, easy to get to Downtown for business, easy access to all kinds of foods at the adjacent Ala Moana Shopping Center, rooms and bedding are clean. One drawback is rooms are so cold I always freeze. Normally the room prices are reasonable but this time by hitting the school spring break it was pricy.

good location, good value

I really liked the location. It was nice to be a little removed from the uber-touristy section of Waikiki. It was close walking distance to Ala Moana Mall

Weekend getaway

We bought tickets to the Lion King at the Blaisdell Center. We flew from the big island and stayed one night at the hotel, booked the morning we arrived online. Check in took awhile, because everyone else is also doing the same, despite every kiosk being served by employees. We loved the workout facilities. They have a steam room and sauna at no extra cost. The location from the Blaisdell Center is a 20m walk...just hope you don't get caught in the rain like we almost did! What I'd recommend is lowering your expextations of customer service, and hope you don't need any help with anything. The power went out at the hotel with bad weather, and we were trying to get to the steam room. The elevators didn't work properly so we asked a cleaning lady for help. She knew what staircase to use but didn't have a key. She found a security guard who had access to a key but just had to get it from his boss. 20m later the guard tells us there's no way to get up a floor because the staircase only unlocks from the inside. Thanks for waiting 20m to tell us that. We did eventually get to the third floor via elevator when it could fit us. I called the front desk at 11am to ask for a late check out. Since the power went out, we missed our alarm and it took a good 30m to get from 9th floor to the 3rd. We hadn't packed and were late to brunch with friends. The front desk refused and pute through to the manager. I'll admit some folks have a charming way to get above average service, and I have never asked to speak to a manager before. The manager also refused even after I explained how frustrating of a morning we had and his excuse was "we've got to clean rooms for the new people checking in". That's like a server asking you to hurry and finish your dinner so the next round of diners can have your table. If he had offered a solution like how's about breakfast on us? Or here's a discount on your stay. On another stay I've witnessed a hostile argument between an angry customer and two employees. I think the customer was pretty difficult to deal with, but that negativity could've been handled behind closed doors. Who wants to see a disagreement when you expect a luxurious experience? I grew up in Hawaii, and the ala moana hotel has a local bad attitude. Maybe it is better for folks who don't speak English so you don't have to hear the excuses and negativity coming out of their mouths. It's a shame because it's a really nice property managed by not so nice ppl who don't seem like they appreciate business. I know not everyone is like the ppl I saw or spoke with, so I hope the worst is over and you get a better experience.

Business?Shopping?Beach?

Been there 3 times during transit or short stays. Always a smart choice and good value !! Easy access to HNL with 12 to15dollars shuttle (Taxi is almost 40 and the Bus($2.50) only permits small Carry-on Baggage). Cross Ala Moana Blvd and you walk,swim or play Tennis at nice Park in 5-10 mn. Good Breakfast available for under 20 usd, which is reasonable on this expensive Island ..... Nice experience altogether.
