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.

Excellent Value

The Waikiki Sunset is an excellent value for the money. Close to everything at a value price. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The rooms are large with a separate bedroom and living room. Full kitchen to prepare meals if you want to. We had an excellent view of Diamond Head with peek-a-boo views of the ocean from our balcony. This is an older property and it shows it age, but they were starting a major renovation during our visit. Parking is available for $11 a day which we found to be a great value as well. Nice pool and walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and the ala wai canal. We will definately return for another visit in the future,

Very Nice!

Not the best hotel, but The Resortquest Waikiki Sunset is by far better than a lot of the others. Condo style rooms with seperate bedroom and a living room area with a pull-out queen sofabed plus a full-sized kitchen with kitchen range/oven and regular sized refrigerator, microwave oven, toaster and coffee maker. The balcony w/table and chairs(2)was nice as well. Ocean view was a bit obscured by other hotels but we could see Diamond Head one way and surfers out on Waikiki Beach the other way! Not great but not bad! This was good for us because we wanted to cook some of our meals(mostly breakfast)and two couples could have privacy as the rooms were seperate and not open like other hotels. Location was OK on the quiet side of Waikiki, unless you want to party down the main area of Waikiki where most of the shops and nightclubs are at. It's a bit of a walk though. There is a Starbucks, Burger King and Subway close by on Kalakaua,(the main strip down Waikiki)as there is no resturaunt in this hotel(why have one if you have a full kitchen to use? but there are places to dine down the road). There was dining specials all the time at the Ocean Resort Hotel nearby at their resturant/grill. Anyone can go there.. The staff here was good and very friendly and the room was always clean and we always had fresh, clean towels, soap, lotions, etc. everyday and our beds were made and sheets were changed if we requested it. It's 5 min to the beach and you have a bus stop on the corner of Kuhio to take you to either downtown Waikiki, or historical Honolulu where the Iolani Palace is, Chinatown, or the Ala Moana Shopping Center, the piers near Aloha Tower, etc.. or anywhere on the island such as Pearl Harbor, Haunauma Bay, etc... Oahu's transportation is second to none! Only $1 and a bus shows up every 5 or 10 min.. OR you can take the trolley for a more scenic view. Costs a little more but some are free to the Galleria and Hilo Hatties(shopping venues). If you have a car rental you can park in the garage for $9/day(that was a downer!) but there are worst rates in town to park. Very tight garage stalls so watch out! There is a pool, mainly for the kids and women to lay out and tan and there is a tennis court and a gas-grill cooking area. There is a mini-mart on the 5th floor for much needed items like sugar, coffee, band-aids, sunscreen, pop, snorkel masks and fins, etc.. and on the 6th floor near the pool is a computer room and wi-fi area for laptops. Overall, we liked it a lot and would recommend it! Not the fanciest but great for families or two couples as rooms could acccomodate up to 5 people. VERY GOOD STAY!!...

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

..Advice: Don't need a car rental if going just in town. Just use the bus or trolley. Also, go to the ABC stores for simple items. Go to the Swap Meet for souvenirs to take back home(T-shirts, etc..) at Aloha Stadium on Wed, Sat or Sun. Going to the Arizona Memorial - Go early as possible, before 7am ! Aloha and have fun!

We Loved It

The hotel is located in an area that at first seems weird if you arrive at night. But the room was beautiful! It was renovated and on the 36th fl. The full kitchen came in very handy and saved us money. We had a mountain view that was breath-taking. There was access to the lanai from both rooms and both had TVs. The bathroom was hugh and well stocked with great shampoo, condtioner, and soaps,not the usual cheapie ones. We went to Waikiki Beach every day, which was just a few blocks away. The hotel is located near the quieter end of the beach which we loved. We checked out the nearby Honolulu Zoo and loved it, especially the tiger cubs. If you go, Lulu's is located nearby and is a great place to eat, right across from the beach. Buy your food at the many ABC stores or find out where near the hotel they come to sell veggies/fruit on Wens and Fri and go to the International Marketplace for soveniers at a good price. I have no complaints about the hotel. The staff was helpful and friendly. There's a store on the 5th fl where you can get neccessties. I would have liked a continetal breakfast or coffee in the morning, but I guess that's where the full kitchen comes in. They give you enough coffee for one time as a kind of welcome, but there's a coffee maker so you can buy some. There's plenty of strong Hawaiian coffee sold nearby and if you're missing home a Starbucks up the street.(But no Dunkies)
