room look and smelled like a hurricane

The staff was very nice and friendly but the room sucked. It looked like they were in the process of renovating it but didn't finish. The bathroom ceiling had black spots and the paint was chipping(looked like old water damage). The closet smelled like mildew. The oceanview was beautiful though. Shopping is right in the area including a 7 11 like store next door which was very nice. Elevator carpet very dirty. you have to call for an ironing board also(not in every room).

ok stay but with consequences

The hotel is very simple and not to updated . If you plan to go out a lot it's ok. There are no Flat screen tvs ,tvs are outdated no pools in the facility and you can only get wifi in the lobby on the second floor. there are fridge in rooms but no microwaves only one for personnel but they will heat your food there for you . The staff was the Best there even though hotel was very simple. staff give you tips on where to go wifi codes towel for beach use, i even got razors and shaving cream how cool was that. The worst part of my hotel stay was that hotel only has one elevator and it broke down 2 times in one week to top it off i was on the twelve floor wouldn't you figure. OVERALL hotel not to great but staff was Fantastic.

There is a place called Blazing steaks just ask the hotel guy every one knows where it is. It has very simple steak and eggs or chicken rice and salad and some other selections of seafood from $6-$8 this is very good food for a great price once you try it you will agree. In one week i literally went there about 4 times

LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION...& Douglas

Let me start off by saying anyone visiting Hawaii and is more interested in what the hotel looks like and can offer is a dummmy!!!! Now, I think the rooms are a bit small, but cozy. They are clean, and the attendants will bring you extra of anything you want. The elevator(1) is slow but its NOT as slow as ppl stated in previous posts!!! Its so close to the beach it was sooo awesome just walking from the hotel. I felt safe in the hotel and the bed was reallly comfy!!! But the ONLY reason I would come back to this hotel...besides location...is the Font Desk Agent [...]! HE WAS SOOO AWSOME! Professional, knowledgeable, and very sweet!! It was our honeymoon and he got us chocolate and wine. He also informed us on ways to get good deals on excursions and meals. I gave him a tip, which if you know me...thats a RARE sight! All in all I DONT recommend this hotel for the old, stuffy, or prissy!!! But if your carefree and ur gonna spend your days relaxing on the beach go for it!!!!

Great Price for the Location

I was in Hawaii for business and pleasure. The Aqua was great for both. Great location in the heart of Waikiki. It was convenient for all my business appointments. And the location was great for relaxing on the beach and going out at night. Next time I have to do business for [@] and my location puts me on Hawaii - I will definetly select The Aqua and I will get it through [...].

When at The Aqua you should check out Rum Fire in Waikiki. Great atmosphere and delicious drinks.

We had a good time, but .....

There was nothing special about the place at all. There is no pool, hot tub, room service. Did I mention that the room had no windows except in the door? If opened, there was no privacy. Morning coffee and the complimentary newspaper made a good start to the day. The hotel provided beach towels and beach mat which was very handy! The shower stall leaked, but this was no big deal. The beds were made late in the day when we were returning from activities. The sheets were not tucked under the mattress and always came out.
