Not so good

I checked in with my 3 children and right away things weren't right. The pool was closed for the first 2 days we were there. There was no parking and valet was full. I hated to have to drop off my kids and then go look for parking for the next 45 minutes. Not to mention, that I had to pay! There is only free Wi-Fi in the lobby and they were out of Ethernet cords for laptops.

noisy

Room was very small and never cooled much even with air conditioning on high. Very noisy location, even 12 stories up still heard every siren and loud exhaust. Not enough parking, very small parking places, and they charge you $20/day! Poor value for the $150 / night price.

At least you can walk to the beach.

Pros; Great location, will loan you beach towels. Cons; 2nd and 3rd floors have no balconies, small beds and small room, outdated slat windows, $20 dollars a day for parking and no complimentary continental breakfast.

family visit

The staff is very friendly, helpful and professional. The rooms were clean, and we always had plenty of towels and supplies. If you like to sleep at night it's best to request a room at the back of the hotel. The neighborhood by the front of the hotel is quite loud at 4 a.m. This is a great place to stay if you need to be in the Waikiki area and don't want to pay a fortune to stay on the beach. The hotel is a short two block walk to the beach.

Check the labels. Most of the stuff is not made in Hawaii. Something to think about when buying gifts.

Below average room

Room overlooked noisy street and had old single paned noninsulated rollout windows that would not shut tight. Room was very hot and stuffy and took several hours for the air condition to cool it down. Bathroom small. Room too small for king size bed with pull out lumpy sofa sleeper. It did have a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker, silverware, and dishes.

not my style but great for shopperholic

I was in Kauai before this hotel. This location is great for shopper. Very closed to busy street of honolulu. This is not my style. I think this can be great value for people who wants busy city experience. I hated parking. They do not have one for the guest sometimes.
