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.

    The staff was amazing. They were all very helpful and went out of there way to make my stay enjoyable. They also made some great recommendations. The room was average, but the location was perfect. The beach is just 2 minutes from the hotel.

    One night stay very pleasant.

    The location was great. I had booked a double room and was given a single bed room, I told the bell man that and we were given a double room immediately. The room was very nice with a large tv and very comfortable beds. The view was not good but we knew that going in. We were told there would be a mandatory charge of $15 for a resort fee. I complained that there was no such disclosure when I booked and they removed the charge. Staff was great.

    Fantastic!

    Perfect for those that want a nice room in a good location, but don't need all the resort amenities. Staff was so nice and helpful. I will return, and I highly recommend Hotel Renew to others.

    Great value and service, but small.

    Great value hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel room is a bit small (had to repeatedly ask companion, who was sitting at the desk, to move so that I could get by). No swimming pool - we didn't mind, but this may be important for others.

    AWESOME!!!!

    I just looooovvveeeddd Hotel Renew! The continental breakfast was awesome. They had fresh fruit, granola, yogurt, pastries, coffee. Couldn't get any better. The rooms were super clean and comfy. It was super close to Waikiki Beach. Offered free beach towels and valet parking was awesome too. I wish I could go back now! I would highly recommend this place to ANYONE!
