Hotel Renew is Honolulu's first true designer boutique hotel. This intimate, eco-friendly gem half a block from the beach was designed by internationally-acclaimed San Francisco designer, Jiun Ho. Find a mod-Asiatic atmosphere that makes a sophisticated, minimalist statement. The artful lobby features a side nook serving organic teas by day and signature cocktails by night. Continental breakfast and 24-hour front desk service seal the deal. Hotel Renew is a perfect getaway for couples.

Location

Hotel Renew has an ideal and unobtrusive location in Waikiki. The hotel is less than a block from the best stretch of sand and swimming along Waikiki Beach, and the dining and shopping district of Kalakaua Avenue. The Honolulu Zoo, Waikiki Aquarium and Kapiolani Park are a 10-minute walk from the hotel.  

Dining

Take advantage of the hotel's continental breakfast and relax over evening cocktails at Lounge Renew. The hotel is surrounded by a variety of dining options, including casual eats at Teddy's Bigger Burgers and excellent mid-priced dining at Tiki's Grill & Bar, Sansei Seafood Restaurant & Sushi Bar and Arancino di Mare.

Rooms

This petite boutique hotel features only 72 rooms. The hotel boasts intimate attention to service and the details guests relish. Designer rooms are sleekly tailored in rich dark woods and graphic creams with red and black trim. Specialty spa amenities, free in-room Wi-Fi, light dimmers and 32- or 50-inch flat-screen HDTVs elevate the hip, upscale ambience.

    Paradise in Paradise

    Renew was absolutely wonderful. The moment I arrived, I was greeted at the front desk with a glass of juice and warm towel. I was a little hesitant to stay at a boutique hotel, but it was definitely worthwhile. There aren't any huge amenities like a gym or swimming pool, but it is so close to the beach you can do without. The staff is EXCELLENT. I did not have a single negative encounter with any of the employees. Every time I came in or left the hotel, it was all smiles and a staff that was ready to meet whatever my needs were. Overall a very well run hotel that will only add onto a great vacation. I would definitely recommend this hotel!

    Honeymoon

    The hotel was amazing, great rooms and great staff! There aren't a lot of amenities, but the bar was cute and friendly and what else do you need... it's steps from the beach! One of the best clubs in Waikiki is just a block around the corner and small convenience stores including liquor is just steps away. You could stay in the rooms all day, so cozy and nice décor... but it's even nicer outside.

    Great place!

    We loved everything about this hotel! The staff was extremely friendly and the room was BEAUTIFUL. It was in a great location being a block away from Waikiki Beach and it was very helpful that we could get beach towels from the front desk. We're just sad that we didn't get to take advantage of the free drinks and continental breakfast because our stay was so short...

    good value for the location

    The hotel is just one block from the beach. The staff was very welcoming and helpful throughout. Clean and quiet. The amenities package may or may not be of interest depending on your needs. Overall very pleased with the experience.

    Convenient & good customer services

    However, the "mandatory" amenity fee should disclose to customers at the time of booking!

    Great stay

    I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel for the first time 2 weeks ago and it was great. I found the hotel to be better than most of what you will find in Waikiki for the price point. The location is perfect and you feel quite safe staying here.

    Great time

    I spent most of my vacation with my son and grandson at the Hotel Renew by Aston. It was a great experience. Hotel staff were top notch all the way around. Hotel was convenient to the Wakiki beach and shopping. Would stay there again.
