Greatest Location for great price

This Hotel was very comfortable. It was right in the heart of Waikiki Beach and was in walking distance to everything. The room was just the right size, the view was amazing and the staff was very nice. It was clean and it looks like it has been updated recently because everything was nice and new.

Amazing value for Beachfront Location

The Circle Waikiki far exceeded my expectations. It's location was footsteps (literally) from Waikiki beach and the view from our ocean-view balcony was spectactular. The room was quaint but a good-size for all a traveler's necessities (sleep and shower!). The room and bathroom were always immaculate and the hotel staff were a wonderful resource for any/all our questions. While there isn't food options on-site, there are multiple food options on the main street. The hotel had a great leave/borrow bin that had rafts, boogie boards, sand mats, etc. Overall this hotel was a perfect value for our vacation in Oah'u.

This is the Best Hotel in Waikiki Beach!

Aloha! This is The Best Hotel to stay in the Heart of Waikiki Beach! Across from the Duke Statue and the Beach, all rooms have insane view of the Beach , all the Hotels, the Surf and the Sunsets! You walk out from the elevator with your shorts and a towel and you're on the beach! And that's all you need when you go to Hawaii!! The Staff was very friendly and helpful! Very easy to find and park! Big Mahalo and see you again!

Steps from the Beach

The Waikiki Circle Hotel is just steps from the beach. We had a great ocean front view and saw the most incredible sunsets each night. However, the room was small (with two double beds) and the bathroom was even smaller (especially the shower). It was almost impossible to have two people in the bathroom at the same time. At check-in, the person at the front desk neglected to tell us that we have to turn-on the mini-refrigerator in order for it to work. And, that person neglected to mention that the hotel has free rafts and surf boards for hotel guests to use. There was no restaurant in the hotel, but that did not matter. There are many great restaurants nearby and great shopping all along the same road.

great price for the view

the resortquest waikiki circle was a comfortable hotel that needs some work in the bathroom but as for the rest of the room it was great the view was great and we upgraded to oceanfront for a nominal charge. this hotel is just that; its not for people who want to eat or get fit [the beach is right across the street]. the service was great, friendly and helpful. I would not recommend this hotel for the portly or to people who need to share the bathroom it's a circular hotel and someplace has to suffer and unfortunatly its the bathrooms size. it does have on sight parking also for a nominal fee[pretty much the norm for hotels here]. overall i'd say it was quite an enjoyable stay and i would stay there again. also they have a guide to help you book trips or entertainment in the lobby.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

International market is 3 blocks away [don't pay full price] and just about any high class shop is within walking distance which is important because you won't find parking. go up a couple of blocks and you will find many restaurants and more shops. a zoo and parks are also just afew blocks away.

great location

This hotel was in a FABULOUS location right across the street from the beach. It is in the center of all the great shopping that waikiki has to offer. The room was tiny and the shower barely fit one person. The bathroom kind of reminded me of a campground bathroom with the tile floor. the only upgrade to the hotel was a flat screen tv in the room. We got a beach front view room which was amazing. It was a little pricey for what we got so I think I would do a little more searching next time.

There are so many shops brand name and souvenior shops only a very short block away. There are many bars and restaurants only a short walk away as well. The beach is right across the street. The international market place is only a short walk away. It is a great location.

close to alot and the bus

Across the street from beach, great location, but hotel is very old and needs updating. It was clean and staff helpful but too much $ for what you get. You are paying for location, location, location

My review of ResortQuest Waikiki Circle Hotel

The ResortQuest Waikiki Circle Hotel is in dire need of a makeover. Everything was very old. The situation of the shower in the bathroom left no way to keep from drenching the floor of the entire bathroom.
