Wednesday evening is manager's reception night in the Aqua Palms lobby. Stop by to try the hotel's signature cocktails and listen to the soothing sounds of classic Hawaiian music.

If you don't plan to rent a car, take advantage of the nearby bus line and shuttle to explore Oahu's rural towns and less-crowded beaches.

Please note that this is a non-smoking property.

Aqua Palms Waikiki, Oahu, Hawaii

Location
Blending trendy design with authentic Polynesian touches and top-of-the-line amenities, the smoke-free Aqua Hotels & Resorts is a modern answer to the traditional Hawaiian experience. Like all Aqua properties, Honolulu's Aqua Palms Waikiki is a vibrant hotel with a uniquely Hawaiian feel and a contemporary sensibility. Start your day in paradise with a freshly brewed cup of Kona coffee - a local blend from the Big Island - while taking in beautiful views of Diamond Head, the Pacific Ocean or the tropical city landscape. After enjoying a delicious breakfast at the downstairs IHOP restaurant, head outside to explore the city, or schedule a rejuvenating in-room lomi lomi massage.

Hawaii Trip

Very nice and clean hotel. The room is very cozy and it makes you feel at home. The staff are very friendly and responds quick to your needs. It's located on the corner of Ala Moana and Kalakua and at the beginning of the Waikiki strip. So, its a 15 minute walk to go to the center of the strip.

Room too small

Location for hotel is good. Room was definitely too small for a family of 4. Outside of hotel looks modern but the inside is outdated. Did not appreciate additional charges of $15/day for using coffee in room and $25/day for parking. Overall experience is poor. Not recommended.

Great location

The hotel is located just of off Wakiki which made it a great value for the money. Being on the beach would have been better but it would have been way more money. Great spot if you want to be close but don't want to spend the big bucks for beach front

Good Hotel

Good Hotel. They do charge a $15/day "hospitality fee" on top of the booking--the staff seemed a little miffed that I wouldn't tip them as a result. Good hotel though. Met expectations.

Okay for the value

My parents brought me here as a graduation gift. The location was superb as we were able to walk to anything - shopping, restaurants etc. The room had everything that we needed and it suited our family. However, the only downside is that they don't offer complimentary breakfast - which we kinda overlooked. We ended up eating breakfast out everyday. They have an IHOP downstairs, but pancakes can get boring after a few times. We would walk over to the Hilton Hotel to get lunch and dinner. All that said, it's good for a budget stay if you're gonna spend all day out in the sun or do fun activities.

quick trip

We needed a room for night. The location was great. The price of room for location was good. Hotel looked nice but room was old and couch bed was broken. Parking was small stalls in a crowded garage. Overall nice stay but probably wouldn't stay again.

Great location at a great price

The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. Location was close to beach, shops, and bus lines are just outside the front door. Manager reception was a nice surprise on the day of our check in. Our view was a partial view of the beach and bay. Only complaint was the noise from the street and the a/c. Lots of traffic on the street just outside the hotel, and the a/c seemed inconsistent in keeping the room at a comfortable temp. although we set the temp at 70 degrees.
