Business trip

Would recommend Sun, Oct 11, 2015
The room only had basic necessities for furniture. The hotel is old and in need of updating but was clean. The TV was very small. The window air conditioner, which was mounted in an exterior wall was so loud that you had to blast the TV to hear it. The room had a kitchen which was adequate. The bathroom was sufficient with one issue, the shower basin would fill with water very quickly as the drain was pitifully slow. The last thing I'd like to add is there is a $25.00 a day charge for parking on their own hotel lot. That isn't mentioned anywhere I could find in the description of the hotel. There is also a one time charge of $20 for use of the amenities which, is a diy laundry, pool, business center and includes the free WiFi that is advertised. No so free. It is definitely a 3.

Unpleasant

Would not recommend Tue, Sep 15, 2015
I wasn't expecting much from this hotel to begin with because it is one of the oldest hotels in Waikiki. When we arrived to the room it was a disappointment even though I wasn't expecting much. There was a hole in the ceiling of the bathroom that was leaking sewage. I had to throw out a bunch of cosmetics and toiletries that were damaged. When we went to the front desk to complain we received no apology for the inconvenience. We were moved to a different room which wasn't much better. The shower was clogged in the new room! The house keeping staff was friendly and the front desk people should take notes from them. In addition, the elevators were so slow and irritating. I am from the island and was surprised that the aloha spirit was not there. That alone would have improved the quality of our 6 night stay despite the sad state of the hotel. I feel bad for those who are not from Hawaii and are expecting a room like the photos on the hotel's website. The rooms are dark, dingy, and unkept. I would never recommend this hotel to anyone. We are now staying at the Hilton Waikiki Beach Hotel and are so pleased with the outstanding guest services! We even received a complimentary bottle of wine and snacks upon our arrival. The rooms are immaculate and we couldn't be happier.
