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.

The aquarium and zoo are at walking distance. In addition, USS Arizona Memorial and Diamond Head Crater are two sites that can be visited by riding local bus and walking short distance.

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).

family friendly

Waikiki Banyan was very comfortable and spacious.The only problem was the loud air conditioner. Otherwise it was a great place to stay with kids.

Great Mountin View

The Waikiki Banyon stay was very satsifying from friendly staff to big rooms and close proximity to the Beach. The residence who lived there were friendly and helpful. The kitchen with utensils allowed us to eat a good breakfast which helped keep food costs down. Wonderful experience. Will stay there again.

Family friendly hotel

The Waikiki Banyan is in an excellent location; near the zoo, Kapiolani park and steps away from the beach. We love staying here because it is easy to access and somewhat away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The only drawback is that I haven't found a 2 bedroom, 2 bath unit.

Condo Units

This is a nice condo type facility, however the charge for the use of the BBQ areas that were listed as a extra item and the pool side restaurant that touted food at 7 A.M.was totally unreliable. I lived two blocks up from this facility 25 years ago and the unit has maintained appearances and the interior is great; most of the staff was great.

great trip to the banyan

The Waikiki banyan was a pleasant suprise. After reading a few negative comments about the proprty and location, we were pleasently suprised. The location isnt that far from the beach like some people complained about, the room was always clean and was suprisingly large (Superior city view). Overall, we were very happy witht he hotel and will definately stay there again!
