Great hotel, reasonable price

Really, there's nothing we could complain about Waikiki Sunset. The rooms and kitchen+utensils were clean, and the staff were very friendly. The only downside was that we had to pay a hotel amenity fee of $10/day. The parking was $11/day, quite cheap compared to other hotels.

worth it for the extra space

Having the extra space with bedroom and living room/kitchen was worth it. A week with two kids in a single room would have been very cramped. Use of kitchen was also convenient and a time saver in the mornings.

Great for the price

The hotel is conveniently located in Waikiki where almost everything is in walking distance. The rooms were large and clean, and the staff friendly. There's convenient parking located on the facility ($11 per day, my assumption is that parking is about equal at the other hotels). My only complaints was that the elevator system didn't seem to communicate what each shaft was doing so instead of trying to figure out the best way to move people, each elevator moved independently of one another. It took 7 minutes one time to get an elevator on the 14th floor, so I can only image what the people on 37 waited. The stairs are barricaded around floor 5 so you can't get around using the elevators as well. [...] they don't even have kitchen facilities on site and thus no food of any kind outside of pre-packaged goods in their mini-mart.

Condo

We upgraded to a 2 bedroom as we took our 13 yo and her best friend with us. For what the hotel was, it was a good value. It is NOT plush, so if that is what you are looking for, look for a hotel on the Marina side of Waikiki. We saved a ton of money by making our own meals in the room (breakfast everyday, lunch some days and dinner most days). A condo is def the way to go, the room was clean, the view we had was nice (although I wasn't a fan of the 'blocked in' balcony)....so, it did obstruct the view a bit. Parking was cheap compared to other hotels (only 11 per day). No free internet in the room, although wireless was available on the 6th floor. Laundry facilities on every other floor was nice. Only 2 blocks from the beach, so easy access to restaurants, shopping and swimming. The pool was very small, but we never used it. No workout room on the property....BUT, who needs a workout room when you can run along the beach or canal right?

Excellent Experience

If you are wanting to escape the hotel experience and are looking for a home away from home this is the place for you. A very relaxing place where you can brew a cup of coffee in the morning and not have to leave the room. Perfect for us as the wife is an early riser and could go into the other room and enjoy the morning and not disturb me......The staff was very helpful and friendly, everything the website said about the hotel was true..would highly recommend this place to anyone staying 7 days or more.
