Great Location, Great Service, Amazing Comfortable Beds

Overall experience was excellent, the rooms are updated, beds and pillows so comfortable, location was great - in the heart of everything opposite the cheesecake factory and above macy's, customer service fantastic. My only negative point is jimmy's buffet downstairs which is not worth the money. The food selection was very scarce and below average. Would recommend

excellent location

this was a wonderful "home" for our one week vacation - nice location in Waikiki - close to the beach, shopping, etc, and easy to get the highway to travel around the island as well. Wish there was a discount on the parking rate for hotel guests though.

The hotel is fine. Your price is directly related to your view. We paid Oorbits price and got an Oorbits view (Roof Fans). Location is great, just across the street from the beach and in the middle of the shopping madness. The pool area is kind of a bummer. It is run by the Jimmy Buffet restaurant bar and the whole pool area shuts down at 6. If you are not eating or drinking be prepared to get hassled. No place to hang out with family and play games or cards.

Perfect location in the heart of Waikiki

Our rooms on the 4th floor overlooking the rooftop of the lower building of the hotel and displayed the lovely view and sounds of the hotel venting systems. After a second night of not being able to sleep (due to the loud noises from the venting system) we upgraded to the 17th floor with partial ocean and city views. This was well worth the $20/night additional charge. The hotel accomodations were excellent. The one complaint and annoyance was that you had to have a room key in order to input your room floor in the elevator. I found myself traveling up and down the elevator passing the 17th floor due to either not putting the key in correctly or in not enough time. Ice machines were not located on each floor requiring you to again travel on the elevator and fight with the key thing to get ice. Additionally, each member of our party was required to carry a room key in order to pass security and enter the elevator. Security was relatively strict - in particular, towards our twenty plus years old. Even when with us (their parents) they were questioned by hotel security and reprimaded for not having a hotel key on their person. The security people were not friendly by any means.

Tuck away Hotel

Hotel itself is right off the main street however, even though you may have reservations at the hotel it still will cost you $30.00 a day to have your car parked on site. Bathrooms are really small with a shower and toilet. You have a safe and a small fridge in the room which helped since we found a walmart and bought soda and water and sandwich items for the beach. Beware if you leave anything out I found that nice bugs would show up, which is not uncommon for the tropics. Pool is very small and it's right outside Jimmy Buffet Restaurant. Staff was great helping in any way they could to make things right. You can get towels to take to the beach from poolside and they give you a cinch bag upon check in. Very expensive for eating out even places like McDonalds and I-Hop. Though the fast food establishments are cheaper than resturanuts. Sometimes the International Market Place food court has some really good deals with the Farmers Market coming once a week. They offer also meals which were really reasonable and fed the entire family for half the cost!!

fun in the sun

I've been to Hawaii 14 times already. All of the hotels do not compare to this one. It is very clean, and the employees who work there are very nice and helpful. It's in an awesome location, right across the street from the beach and the very famous Cheesecake Factory, and right next to the International Market Place.

Bang for the Buck!!!

For the price this hotel was a great deal. Very clean and well kept. Location was perfect right in the heart of Waikiki... Our rooms were on the 6th floor with a partial view of the strip. 5 min walk to beach was cool. Parking $30 per night was a little steep but the valet guys were awesome. Jimmy Buffets in lobby was really convienent. I would def stay there again, unless money was no object....
