Exotic beachside hotel priced for value

The Aston Waikiki Beachside features a taste of Hawaii's Asian element through exotic furnishings and artwork from around the world. Original style is matched by grand, panoramic views of Waikiki Beach and the Pacific Ocean from many rooms.

Great location on the beach

Great location on Waikiki beach, however I was disappointed in the room a bit. Price was good for what we got. Very basic room & hotel w/out much in the ammenities area. Would only refer people on a tight budget to stay there. Next time I will pay extra for the extras. We did not spend much time in the room & think we would have if it were nicer :(

Oceanfront...

...but that's about the only good thing about this hotel. My oceanfront room is smaller than my master's bedroom; even the elevator only fits 4 people at a time. I noticed a few guests wanting to check out once they found out how tiny their rooms were. Some European guests were ok w/ small rooms from speaking w/ a couple of them. It's notable as well how a couple of front desk personnel were nicer once their supervisor was around. Housekeeping personnel were very nice and friendly but that alone won't make me stay at this Aston property again.

WaikikiBeachside

Not hotel I thought I was getting. 2 Aston Waikiki's within 2 blocks of each other, this one was missing Aston name. When I went to first one and was told I was not registered, I drove by the first several times before I found it. Older hotelmy room had a wonderful view of the wall of the next hotel, rooms small, up graded to ocean view room, be careful what you wish for ocean view on west side of building room never got below 80 degrees. Got a fan last 2 days which made it livable. Could not ask for better desk staff and concierge [...] was a great help.
