Hip escape in the center of Waikiki

The vibrant Aqua Waikiki Wave is a surprising find tucked into the middle of Waikiki. Offering  hip room decor and complimentary amenities like free Wi-Fi access, Aqua Waikiki is the perfect stop for any vacation. Step outdoors and find endless opportunity for exploration and fun, including International Market Place, Royal Hawaiian Center and Waikiki Beach, just a block away. The Wave is also one of Honolulu's few dog-friendly hotels, welcoming two critters up to 40 pounds each (fees apply).

Location

Aqua Wave Waikiki sits in a nook along one of Waikiki's main streets next to the International Market Place and a block from Waikiki Beach. Enjoy walking access to the entire area before retreating to the vibrant atmosphere at Aqua Wave.

Rooms

The hotel's 247 renovated rooms are comfortably sized and feature Asian-inspired and artistically vogue decor. Balconies offer modest city views, wide or peek-a-boo ocean views. All rooms have LCD TV and DVD player, free Wi-Fi, air-conditioning, Aqua BLISS bed, signature Aqua bath amenities, refrigerator and microwave.

Good location, right in the middle of everything. Just a few blocks away from the beach. Can't wait until they completed the new International Market place. I would definitely go back and stay at Aqua Waikiki Wave again.

Hawaiian Vacation

Centrally located, a block from the beach, shopping , restaurants and entertainment. Bus stops, either way about 50 ft away. Staff accommodating and helpful. Only problem, balcony or lanai littered with encrusted bird pop. Avoid handling the railings, otherwise the room is clean. Room ambience very soothing and relaxing. AC is great, has its own digital temp control in increments of degrees. Microwave and Mimi fridge provided so you stock your own food and drinks. Hotel recommended for budget traveller w/out sacrificing comfort and security.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

It is cheaper to shop on Kuhio Ave , where the hotel is than at Kalakau, a block up by the beach even from the same store chain. Eat seafoods! You're in Hawaii, they are fresh and cheap. Don't forget fiber...pineapple, papaya, mangoes and of course, macadamia!

Great value for the location

Our room was clean and comfortable. Unfortunately, the building across the street was being torn down so it was quite noisy.
