Everything about Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel is fun and full of life - from the modern-Hawaiian beach theme in the lobby (surfboards and all) to the naturally inspired decor of our guest rooms. Simply put, this is one of Waikiki's most popular hotels. We're directly across the most scenic section of Waikiki Beach, so you can get to your favorite spot on the beach with ease.

General

Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel - Oahu, HI

Location

Located directly across Kalakaua Avenue from the famous Waikiki Beach, the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel is near the Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium and the Manoa Falls rainforest. Spectacular views of the Diamond Head volcano site can be seen right from the resort, and the Ala Wai Golf Course is a few blocks inland, for those craving eighteen holes under the tropical sun.

Dining

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.

Rooms

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. All guest rooms at Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel are styled for comfort and convenience, and include refrigerators and large flat-panel TVs. Most rooms have full or partial ocean views, and some offer private lanai (balconies) where you can relax and enjoy the scenery.

Costs go up and amenities go down

We have gone to this hotel for at least 10 - 12 years for Thanksgiving. Each year the price goes up and the good stuff has slowly decreased. It now costs $28.27 to park your car per day and on top the cost of the hotel price you pay there is now an amenity fee of $24.08 per day per room. This includes a newspaper (like many people read those these days), Swimming Pool, Breakfast with live music and a hula dancer, in-room wi-fi, free movies, nice TV's in the room, a fridge (but no microwave) and free towels and chairs for the beach. They now also have a good coffee maker in each room where before you had to go down to the breakfast to get coffee. Great if you are a coffee person that needs that jump start to leave the room. The Breakfast used to be excellent but every year there is less and less types of food and basically has become a continental breakfast. This year there was not even cream cheese for the mini bagels. Also they give you a tote bag to carry the food to the beach or wherever. They used to supply two tote bags per room and now they only provide one per room. Perfect if you are by yourself. It still is decent but not near what it was when we first went there. The reason that we have continued to go there is the location which is great! Right across from the beautiful beach and in walking distance to the Waikiki scene. They don't seem to clean the bathrooms as good as before and this year when we arrived it smelled like urine. Next year we will investigate other hotels.

Great return

My kids loved their first trip to Hawaii. Same building I stayed in on my first trip when it was another hotel, but upgraded. The location is still amazing and exotic.

Great first trip for kids to Hawaii

Lots of beach, and local flavor. We checked out a food cart/ukelele festival just around the corner, drove to Pearl Harbor and the West Side of the island one day, explored a waterfall, the Pali and bodysurfed at Mokapu another. The weather was the usual great Hawaiian tropic cycle.

Good location

I was there on business but this was business with pleasure with my wonderful view of the ocean. Staff was helpful. One thing to watch out for is their $23 resort fee per day that they add on when you get there. Take that into account when you book.

Upgrade Disappointment

My boyfriend and I booked this hotel for one night to celebrate my birthday. We had made a dinner reservation nearby and didn't want to fight traffic on Halloween. We originally booked a room with a king size bed and partial ocean view. When we got to the hotel they told us they gave away all the rooms already with King size beds and there were only two doubles left. I booked this a month ago, why can't you just save me the room I booked?? Then they said as a consolation they would upgrade our room to full ocean view. We were happy with this, until we got to the room. Um... No. Our view was still a partial and we looked directly on to the roofs of very close neighboring buildings. We could BARELY see the ocean. I wouldn't have even counted that room as a partial ocean view. I know they have full ocean view rooms as that hotel faces the beach! So when I called and asked they said what did I expect since we checked in late. I expect great service and follow through on your supposed "upgrade". When I check in to my hotel reservation should be of no consequence of what my room looks like. The bathroom had peeling paint on the walls and was a bit dirty. Towels were stuffed into the rack like the maid was in a huge hurry. And halfway through the night our TV stopped working. Front desk said there was nothing to be done. For the price I would expect so much more. I won't stay here again.

They have a nice continental breakfast served by the pool but bring the coffee cups provided in your room. The cups at breakfast are tiny.
