Excellent location!

Away from the noise, yet close to the beach, restaurants, shopping centers: not only to the ABC stores and Whalers but to the Don Quixote, Foodpantry, Alamoana Shopping Center. We stayed here 26 nights, could cook, eat out as we wished. Easy bus ride, the bus stop right in front. Fantastic strategic place to all kinds of activities.

You can visit anywhere by public bus in Honolulu, and walk everywhere as in Japan, which we can't do in most of the US cities.

Great location & great staff!

The staffing at the hotel was very pleasant and efficient. We loved the location. The rooms were clean and up to date. The front desk people knew their jobs and did so with a great warm smile. The housekeeping did a very thorough job each day. The views from the hotel (we were on the nineth floor) were breath taking. Thanks Ambassador! We shall return

Not up to advertisement

There was no tea or coffee in rooms without incuring extra charges. They charged extra for parking, pool, etc. Overall I would not recommend this hotel to anyone.
