    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.

    If you like to walk or run, area is convenient for doing that either on the beach or up towards Diamond Head.

    Great Value

    Selected because of location near Honolulu Marathon finish line. But only one block from Waikiki Beach and a couple blocks from the Honolulu Zoo and Kapiolani Park. Staff extremely helpful. Room small but very clean and well appointed. Japanese style decor.

    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!

    Hidden Gem

    I frequent Oahu on business and this hotel is definitely the best for your money. Great location (on the far end of the tourist strip) perfect walking distance to waikiki attractions (diamond head,the aquarium, the zoo) and great local restaurants a little further north. And only a block from the beach!!! Cozy rooms and beds, nice aesthetic design. It's fancy without being over the top. I read several reviews complaining about the lack of lighting however I appreciated it. There are dimming switches to adjust the light as needed and that is a welcome difference from fluorescent chain hotel lighting. Also I read about the street noise being a problem or some people but they have wood shutters and a giant ac fan that makes nice white noise. I didn't have trouble sleeping at all. The best part though is the STAFF! They are so friendly and helpful and made me feel right at home. I didn't see one staff member without a smile on their face the entire time! It is refreshing to be treated as a valued customer and not as an inconvenience. Also, the valet parking is super helpful in this area of waikiki and it is only 25$ a day. I didn't have to wait for my car once! This is a wonderful small little hotel if you are looking for a personal experience and not a typical resort style vacation!

    Great location for the price

    We spent a wonderful week in the Hotel Renew. The room was clean, as was the bathroom. Only the air conditioner is a little bit loud, dont worry if You are a good sleeper. The personnel (reception and valet) was always very friendly and helpful. To Waikiki Beach it is just 100 yards and they supply guests with all the beaching utilities one can think of.
