Waikiki Banyon

Awesome location and the view and room were great but the sleeper sofa was in dire need of replacement. The chairs in the condo and the lanai were uncomfortable.

Great place

The kitchenette was great and the rooms were very clean. Was a great deal for the price. Also parking was only $10.00 per 24 hours, a lot less than most places.

honest review!! best wedding/honeymoon!

came here to get married!! most friendly staff ever! After traveling for over 12 hours, it was nice to be greeted by an amazing staff... they put smiles on our faces and showed amazing aloha ^___^. the rooms were fantastic, clean, and meet everyone of our needs! the location was the best aswell! just a block from Waikiki and a couple from international market. we have been to waikiki many times before, but this was our first time at this hotel. all I can say is that I read reviews about this hotel before coming and I was a little afraid because of some negative reviews. all that went out the window! this place was amazing and I didn't experence anything negative. the staff made this hotel the best! thank you cliff and clarance!! and thank you Aston Waikiki banyan for beautiful memories and unbelivable service!!!

Great location for the price

Our experience at the Banyan was excellent. We arrived 4 hours before check in and our room wasnt ready but the wonderful staff upgraded our room at no additional expense so we could check in immediately! Our room was clean and comfortable with a full kitchen which really cuts down on eating costs. The hotel is about a block from the beach and many shops and restaurants. We would definately stay there again.

Great Hotel

It was only a short walk to downtown Waikiki. The hotel room was very roomy and it had everything that we needed. I would definitely recommend this hotel and I will stay there again.

Great Price, Great Stay!

Great hotel, pictures do not do it justice. Very spacious. Very clean; Hawaii is notorious for cockroaches, and this hotel had none! Friendly staff, very helpful. Two cons: Depth of pool was 6 ft. Not very large, but it was very clean. Most of the pool was only 4 ft. deep, which is good for kids. The wireless internet is not free(I think they mentioned that in the details) you buy anything from a coffee shop in the hotel, and you get it free all day(as long as you have a laptop), but to have it at night, you have to pay 10 dollars a day, not too bad, but when you are staying long term, it is a bit of an inconvenience. Also, they have few routers, and work on a first come, first serve basis.

Dining tip: In Hotel

The "Snack Shack" is not so much of a snack shack. They have full dinners, for example: Kahlua pig, rice, and a salad. hot dogs, chili dogs, rice and chili, rice, egg and spam/sausage. And lots of other dishes that I cannot remember off the top of my head. *Walk around also, it is beautiful, and there are plenty of dining options if you don't want the snack shack, or coffee place(I think it was called Banyan Breeze Coffee, or Cafe, i can't remember)

Satisfying experience

We (three sisters) checked lots of hotel reviews in this price range and decided on the Wiakiki Banyan and were very pleased with our decision. We had a ocean view room on the 33rd floor. Very quiet, great views and very clean. The kitchen living room area was a good size with very clean appliances. The bathroom area was also a good size and it had a tub too! The staff was VERY helpful and always made us feel like a guest. They also have a great "coffee shop" that had wonderful breakfast sandwiches and a lunch menu. We would stay there again.

Ride the "Ducks". They have two trips. We took the one to Pearl Harbor and Honolulu. Ask for Bruce for your driver. He was a hoot! Riding around Waikiki and Honolulu in these huge yellow ducks is something you will remember, plus he takes you out into the ocean too!

Trip to Oahu

The hotel was really located 2 minutes from the beach and very close to the excellent local bus stops. The rooms were clean and all the kitchen was well equipped with appliances, dishes, and silver ware. This was a vacation to relax and tour as well. The hotel concierge was very helpful. The tour guide bok in the room with coupons was very useful too. This is one of the best hotels we have stayed.

Very good value and good location

Staff were attentive, friendly and knowledgable without being over the top. Being one block from Waikiki beach was great for the family. Room was a suite with a very good kitchen so we didnt have to eat out all the time. Close to the zoo as well(one block). The Banyan made for very nice holiday accomodation.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Waikiki can be expensive in terms of food. Go to the local shopping centers ( such as kahala mall - 10 min) to stock up the kitchen and prices drop signficantly.The bus is an inexpensve ($2)way to get around Honolulu and will take you all the way to Pearl Harbour ( Arizona Memorial etc).
