You get what you pay for

My family had reserved 2 rooms. One had 3 adults and the second had 2 adults. Although we had requested rooms be located on the same floor one month prior to the start, the first set were not on the same floor and the one room for 3 people only had one Queen size bed. After telling the manager that the amount paid was for 3 people, she finally looked in their files to confirm what I had been saying from the start. In the end, the room for the 3, had a lumpy sofa bed and a king sized bed. The other room for 2 people had broken lamp shades and leaking bathroom fixtures. Given most time is spent outside the rooms, the location of the hotel and staff made up for its short-comings. p.s. pool supposed to open and be available starting at 7am, only happened 50% of the time there.

Doorway to Waikiki

Convenient to shopping. Buses stop in front of hotel. Great coffee shops located on the same block--national and well known local coffee shop located next door.One is open 24 hours and is very popular--know that lines start early in the morn.Elevator is extremely slow.Fee for use of Computer Kiosk in Lobby-don't bother inferior hardware and line speed. Internet is available in rooms with decent line speed. If you book room & get backside of hotel be aware that construction on vacant lot started mid-Mar13.Room had a small outside patio with view of construction crane.Ask before you book room. Comfortable bed with lots of pillows and the size of room is bigger than most. I was in town for a short stay to attend family event so I didn't mind not having a room view. Front desk was organized and friendly. Yes, I would stay again.

Money-saving tip: Long walk from hotel

Expensive daily parking so just take the bus around town. Less than $3.00 to take bus to Waikiki and walk back maybe a mile so you can visit the shops and play tourist. Or, cross the street to take beach sidewalk to Waikiki. Get great photos of Diamond Head unobstructed and watch the gorgeous sunset. Or, go the other direction and stop at Ala Moana Shopping Center less than 3/4 miles away.

Aqua Palms is in a great location

Other than being in a great location close to Ala Moana, Hilton Hawaiian Village, Fort deRussy, Kuhui/Kauakaua Ave the place is just average. Pool is small yet beautiful, lobby is outdated but has all the amenities. Friendly attentive service all around :)

Palms

we loved the hotel-staff was very friendly-good value for location. Only issues were we could not change rooms for a balcony room without packing everything up and leaving it downstairs until 3pm and the toilet would run every few minutes disturbing sleep (had to keep bathroom door closed at night). All in all, a close walk to beaches and the mall.

You get what you pay for

The hotel was a great price for a reason. The rooms are very small, and the hotel is a little too far away from the action on Waikiki beach. They have flat screen TVs, a small fridge a microwave, and tubs so small that they're only suitable for showers. There is no wifi in the rooms, and a mildew-ish smell in the lobby. If you can get past these small negatives, you'll have no problem with the hotel. The place is kept clean, and the staff is very friendly and accommodating. The IHOP connected to the hotel takes the wondering out of what you should have for breakfast. Although the hotel is away from the beach, it does happen to be near some good restaurants.

Great location at a great price

Room was clean, modern, and quiet even during spring break. The xpedia concierge set up our daily plans, and had all the right maps. The only sore point was the internet access. They have free access over network cables in each room, but no wifi except in the lobby. Times have changed, and the lobby was busy every night with people on their phones and tablets.

Check out the Shore Bird Restaurant on Kalia ave on Waikiki beach. Amazing views, good salad bar and you can grill your own steak how you like it for under $20.

Great Place !

Perfect location, I have been to Waikiki 4 times and this is my favorite. Just across the street from the Hilton Hawaian Village, so you can shop and dine there if you choose, access the beach in 5 minutes, close enough to waikiki beach to walk and shop. Probably a 20 min walk. Parking was no problem, always space and not as difficult as mentioned in prior reviews, which I was worried about, unless you have a large SUV, which then it is still doable, just a little more maneuvering. Only suggestion, do not eat at the coffee shop on the corner, absolutely gross! even though it is crowded?

Awesome choice

Great location ! This is my 4th time in Oahu, I have even stayed directly on Waikiki beach but this place is my favorite. Just across the street from the hilton hawaian village, so you can take advantage of all the resort shopping and dining. Make it to the beach in 5 minutes and down to Waikiki beach and the international market in about 20. Very clean room, not small by any means, perfect ! Did not have any problem with the parking garage either as some have complained about?
