The Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel in Oahu greets guests with surfboards and citrus shades in its lobby, and bright island decor and natural elements of bamboo and rattan in its guestrooms. Start the day off with live music accompanied by freshly brewed Kona coffee, tropical fruit, baked goods and many other choices, or pack these tasty treats in a complimentary cooler bag and enjoy breakfast on the beach. With wood floors, original art and hand-carved island decorations, the on-site Tiki's Grill and Bar sets a South Pacific 1950s scene that serves up braised beef short ribs and grilled salmon, alongside kid-friendly meals served, believe it or not, on Frisbees.

good time

We like the location but we are disappointed with the cleanliness. We have heard the vacuum cleaner only once in 8 days.....and we had to call twice to get the room clean. It is an okay hotel to stay.

"Average" Honeymoon

From what I was told, having a honeymoon is perfect in Hawaii and that the hotels are usually very welcoming. During check in, the person did not mention anything about our honeymoon. I had to remind them, by asking for the frame and a picture of the hotel as they mentioned in their emails for honeymooners. She handed me a frame (with no hotel picture) with no smile or congratulations or anything. Our room was right behind three elevators and we could hear the elevators right behind our bed. Room service would take towels and forget to replace them. Valet service was good. And service was okay in general, ie, when we asked for towels we got them. The amenities fee increased during our stay. This was not explained to us during check in. We did not think it was fair to go from $10/day to $18/day without letting us know. After awhile of discussion, they changed the fee to $10/day for our entire stay. The hotel would benefit with a hot tub. The AC was always really cold, and we could never figure how to turn it off. The only way to turn it off (with a sensor) was to leave the balcony door open-but that lets in rain and critters. We were disappointed with the car rental and that they charged extra for my husband to drive. Had we known that it was going to be extra, I would have had my husband make the car reservation in the first place.

I will never go back to this hotel

I hate it everything about it.. Super crowded, no hot tub,at the swim pull you need it to register for the towels if you didn't bring them back you would've get charge for them, and then after we paid around 600 $ DOLLARS for 3 nights they tell me when i am checking in that there is another fee of 18 $ a day called amenity fee wich incuded some movies in the room some other things that any other hotels offer for FREE ,oh yes and the breakfast apparently was free but no, if you wanted eggs , omelet or french toast you had to pay for it.... nobody goes in vacation and wish is to leave asap.. i did hate it

Aston Waikiki Bust

Staff was rude. Charged extra $18 per day (mandatory charge) for " extra ammeneties" which included a "breakfast". Breakfast consisted of cold cereal, donuts, fruit and muffins. Not work $18. Pool is in shade and needs upgrade. Was put in a room next to elevator shaft, could not sleep. Overall bad hotel experience, I would never return to Aston Waikiki or any Aston for that matter.

Aston Wakiki

This is a beautiful, clean and modern hotel. I had a great time. My only issues were that the key card to my room kept malfunctioning and it's a long way from the 16th floor back to the desk each time to reprogram it. When I checked in the air conditioning in my room wasn't working and within 5 minutes someone was there and fixed it. GREAT service!

Below Average

The hotel was in a great location but for the price of our stay I was expecting more. The hotel had no wireless internet and the elevators were consistently broken down. We stayed on the tenth floor with a infant so it was quite an inconvenience for what was supposed to be a four star hotel. All in all, I would not recommend this hotel to a friend.

The Aston hotels in Oahu and Kauai are the queen of deferred maintenance. It was run down, beat up

Everything was mis-represented from the breakfast to the amenities. Run down, worn out and beat up

Nice Location

Rooms clean and comfortable bed. The location was great...right across the street from the beach. A bit of a walk though to the majority of the Waikiki stores for shopping. WiFi is unreliable and the staff seemed unconcerned and actually recommended I sit in the pool area to get a connection. Small problem...it was pouring rain and no cover! Nice hotel for vacationing but I would recommend it if your primary reason for being in the area is business related. Onsite restaurant but no room service. No coffee maker in room.
