Good Location but...

Location can't get any better!!! Room wise, it is an average motel 8 with a better bed. TV is facing away from the bed and can't see it while you are in the bed. people in the hallway can see you sleeping in the bed due to the windows are not so well covered. Glass wall facing the hallway covered with curtains. No counter-top space in the bathroom. Everything had to be placed on the top of the toilet water tank. Very nice lady at the counter in the early evening but rude male attendant at night. He thought the guest was someone else and it looked like he cancelled the room key until the customer could verify the stay at the front desk. Price wise, additional $80 or so a night, you can be in the Hyatt next door. Overall, I needed a place to take a shower and crash for a few hours to catch a flight while get to dip in the water at the beach! Not bad for the price but don't expect 3-star services...

Pay Attention

I should have paid more attention when I was told there were No windows in the room. My wife thought it was like being "in a cave."

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.

Not For Business Trip

Some rooms have doors onto the hallway with glass crank-out louvers. This is a security concern. Hotel desk staff switched me to a room with a solid door without any hassle. Rooms are small and lack any space for working. Room decor is quite dated. This is a very good value for the central location and beach access. Would consider staying here again for a short leisure trip.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Head to the beach at the park away from all of the high rises (towards Diamondhead). It's a short three-block walk. Stop by Starbucks or Subway on your way and pick up a snack. Hotel provides free use of beach towels.

@ Stays - 2 Opinions

First - be advised that the hotel IS going through a restoration period and the carpets are in bad/sticky condition. I knew that from the 1st stay, but since I was only there checking out employment options and not as a tourist - it didn't matter. This time, the second room they gave me, the toilet made weird groaning sounds and when I turned the faucet on to wash my hands, the whole spout broke loose and popped into the air. When I went to wipe up the water - there wasn't a towel of any type available. Maintenance had gone home so I was up-graded to the only option left - an ocean front room. Lawe, the front desk guy is excellent. The new room was ok until I went to watch TV about 10 pm and the remote had dead batteries - I went down to the desk - got new DEAD batteries and finally went to the ABC store next door to purchase some AA batteries at my own expense. So - was it worth my money?
