Big value at contemporary hotel in central Waikiki

The new Aqua Waikiki Pearl is a totally refreshed and upgraded boutique-size hotel featuring large rooms at a reasonable rate. The hotel is located on a mellow side street, less than two blocks from Waikiki Beach and the area's best shopping and dining. Book a suite with a fully-stocked kitchen to maximize your dollar. Wi-Fi access throughout the hotel is available and is included in the Hospitality Fee. Two pets up to 40 pounds each are welcome.

A petite midrise hotel, Waikiki Pearl offers 135 fully-renovated, smartly-tailored island-decor rooms to match almost any budget. Standard rooms start at 195 square feet and superior rooms jump to 451 square feet, accommodating up to four people. All accommodations have private balcony, except for standard rooms. One-, two- and three-bedroom suites feature full kitchens that include dishes and utensils.

Dining

Hang out at Legends sports bar in the hotel lobby with satellite TVs. Grab coffee and a croissant at Starbucks, adjacent to the hotel. Chili's is within a block, and countless other small and large eateries are within a 4-block radius.

ok for the price

It was clean room but no view. The A/C was alittle noisy. Could have provided some plates and silverware. Parking was full.had to park 2 blocks away. $18/day too high. The room was very plain but for the price ok. Next time I'll pay more and stay at nicer hotel.

My take on Waikiki Pearl

I spent 11 days here. It's close to the beach, easy 1/2 mile walking distance. Lots of places to eat nearby. Easy access to the trolley and the bus lines. I wish it would have had a gym and pool, next time I'll look for that. Staff was friendly and knowledgable. My room was clean, if I had to nitpick I would say the TV was on the smallish side. Overall, it was a good palce to stay for the money and except for not having the pool and gym I would recommend it to anyone that doesnt need those things.

Hole in the wall place

We were there for a destination wedding and the wedding party stayed at this hotel. The 2-bedroom suites were much roomier than your standard rooms. The nice thing about the standard room was the fact it had a microwave and fridge so it helped to do some grocery shopping and save a few bucks on food. The $20/night parking pass was ridiculous! In the morning you can walk next door and there was Starbucks! If you're trying to save money but want to stay at a decent hotel, this is not a bad place to stay at. I would stay here at Aqua Waikiki Pearl again unless I can find somewhere else where they don't charge you a parking fee.

Simply Perfect

We didn't travel to Honolulu to spend most of our time in a hotel, so we didn't need a hotel that had a lot of special features like a pool or a restaurant. We just needed a place to sleep, that was in a good location to everything we wanted to do. The Aqua hotel was smack dab within walking distance of everything in Waikiki. Other hotels that have pools, restaurants, an ocean view are much more expensive. This hotel was affordable, offered clean and spacious rooms, a friendly staff, and all of the basics that you need from a hotel.

Now the Aqua Waikiki Pearl

If you are looking for a very nice hotel without the bells and whistles, the Pearl fit the bill. The room was clean and the hotel was nice and in good shape. The staff was friendly. It was a great deal for the price.

Great Location!

The hotel staff were very friendly and were more than willing to accommodate your needs. Parking is very limited and so you have to put your name on a list to get a spot. I had to park two streets down, which wasn't a big deal. The location of the hotel is great. It is a 5-10 minute walk to the beach. There are a lot of restaurants around the hotel, offering different types on cuisines. There are also a lot of small convenient stores so you can buy smaller things. There is a mall a few streets down with all your popular name brand stores. THe price was worth the location of the hotel and I would definitely stay here again.

good location for the price

general is ok for the price, only bad is the parking, small parking for a big hotel, we have to park far away... and walk back to hotel many time in a day. if someone rent a car.. then it's not a good idea to stay here.
