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.

TheBus is a short walk from the hotel. Buy TheBus schedule booklet ($4.95) at the nearest ABC store (there's one in the same block as the hotel). Walking to estaurants, beach, and entertainment is very doable.

"Wonderful family vacation"

The Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel was a wonderful place to stay. During our stay we visited Pearl Harbor and went to the Paradise Cove Luau which was outstanding. The staff at the hotel directed us to the International Market which we enjoyed. We also went to Duke's Market which was fun. I had read that some people had problems with the elevators at the hotel but we never had a problem. The staff at the Aston were very helpful and and well informed. We also rented a car and drove around the island and visited North Shore which was amazing. I definitely would return to this island and stay at the Aston. There is so much to do and a week is not long enough.

Dining tip: Long walk from hotel

Tiki Bar and Grill and Duke's Restaurant were wonderful. I would definitely go back for dinner at these two facilities. It was well worth the walk to Duke's. Food was great. I would suggest staying away from the oriental restaurants because the amount of food you receive is not worth the price.

Room with a great ocean view

We were very pleased with the Junior Suite. It was well worth the additional expense. Our view of Waikiki Beach was incredible. The Hawaiian decor was well done. Very comfortable bed, good size flat screen TV, and two lanais. The hotel staff was very accomodating. Our only disappointment was their complimentary Breakfast on the Beach buffet breakfast. It was pretty horible and we stopped trying it after the first two days. This would not keep us from returning for another stay.

The zoo was right around the corner from the hotel. The aquarium a short walk towards Diamondhead. The beach was right across the street and they had lounges and umbrellas for rent to make your beach experience comfortable.

Great Romantic Getaway

The ResortQuest Waikiki Beach was a fantastic find. It was recommended to us from a friend who used to live in Honolulu. We were very pleased with the quick check-in process, as we arrived late at night. The location to the beach was awesome and the view was amazing. I doubt you can find a more comfortable bed than what we had in our hotel room! Breakfast was extremely good and they provided us with coolers to pack our breakfast and take it with us wherever we wanted to go. It was at the end of the Waikiki Beach Walk and we had easy access to wherever we wanted to go. The only negative experience we had was a single employee who was working the front desk. We paid extra to extend our check-out time since our flight didn't leave until 9:25pm that night. When we went to check-out the next day the price had suddenly jumped from what he had told us it would be. We requested to speak to a manager and the manager fixed the price and we left happy. I was very put off by that one employee's attitude and discussed it with his boss. His boss assured us that it would not happen again and apologized for his employee's rudeness. I would definitely recommend this hotel to a friend and we plan on staying there on all future visits!

Homey and Friendly

The staff were great, very helpful and friendly. Every where was in comfortable walking distance, even the zoo. the rooms clean and fresh. The breakfast is a great idea although it became kind of same, same after awhile. I would have to try awful hard to try to come up with something negative to say about the hotel, so I won't even try. I would gladly stay there again, and have no problem recommending it to any of my friends.

Hawai'i getaway

This hotel was great. The staff was helpful and answered many questions. If you take children it gets no better. It is directly across the street from the ocean, with a walled area for children to play. The water was no deeper than 5 to 8 ft. The Honolulu Zoo is directly next door and the Waikiki Aquarium is about a 10 minute walk. Shops galore all along the Waikiki strip. Great place to stay.

Many restaurants within walking distance, but the Rainbow Drive-In is only about a 5 minute drive from the hotel. Great food at a great price. My wife and I both ate dinner, with drinks, for around $20!!!!

All at your finger tips

We loved the location . Just across the street from the beach was amazing made it easy to get up and go at anytime. The view from our room was breath taking. The staff was helpful and friendly. Everything was in walking distance. the continental breakfast was such a help to get your day started. We relaxed and really enjoyed our stay. The only negative was the room was a bit small and a bit tight for our family of 3. but we were out most of the day so it was bearable.
