Aston Wakiki Sunset

Fantastic location and very friendly staff. We received an Ocean view room upgrade upon check-in. The room was spotless and a perfect size for a family of four. Had a wonderful time and the value was excellent!

Great place for our family!

This hotel was perfect for us. The location was great. Not right on the beach but the walk was an easy few blocks and offered peace and quiet away from the hustle bustle of the main strip. Staff was professional and helpful. We did not use the hotel pool because we spent our "water" time at the beach but did go take a look and it looked clean and pleasant. Parking garage seemed very secure. Hotel has a mini mart inside for sunscreen, other beach items, etc. which was also convenient for us. Only minor complaint I would have is that the kitchen utensils, cookware, etc. was limited. This hotel does not offer a lot of glitz and glamour but it was clean and provided everything we needed for a great trip to Hawaii!

Very nice hotel

We wish we could have done more, but you need to reserve your attractions when you book your trip. The hotel needs to be put on the pick up list for the shuttles for the attractions. This made it very irritating for us when the shuttles would pass by the front of the hotel then the driver would have an attitude because they would have to come back around to get us. They were pretty rude.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

You dont need a rental car as this hotel is in walking distance to almost everything. It is best to just walk since it is very hard to find parking and when you do find parking, its meters everywhere. Otherwise utilize the free shuttle til 430pm and the trolley for $2.00 a person. They take you all the way to the marina and the mall.

Nice Getaway

Not bad, rooms have been re done. Large space, but about two-three blocks from beach and at the very end of Waikiki. Other guest got kind of loud at times.

Fun Family Getaway

It was nice to have a place with a kitchen. It is very beneficial to have a kitchen when you are traveling with young children. We did not have to figure out where to go for breakfast each morning which saved us a ton of time. By the end of the day the kids are tired and are not good company if we take them to a restaurant it would have been torcher for everyone. The hotel is in a great location. It is close to the beach and we walked to the beach everyday.

Spring Break Get Away

We enjoyed our stay at the Aston Sunset. We found the staff friendly. The location was close to the beach and the shops and restaurants were close also. We enjoyed having a nice living space with a living room with a full kitchen and a separate bedroom and a deck. The rooms seemed to be recently renovated with internet connection available if needed.

Excellent Family Getaway

Ideal location: very close to Waikiki beach. While I was away at a conference my family had a great time just walking around Waikiki. The staff were extremely friendly. There is a convenience store inside the hotel which was very useful. Breathtaking views of the ocean from the room balcony. Next trip to Hawaii we will most certainly stay at Aston Sunset.
