    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 little secret

    This was our 2nd time and we still like it. We generally felt very comfortable and safe staying here. The staff is very friendly and will go out of their way to help. When we first stayed here, it was a boutique hotel; but I think it's now owned by a larger chain (Aston). I don't really agree with the concept of the $15/night amenity fee, but in competitive Waikiki, what do you expect? That's really my only complaint about it. Other than that, I would've rated it higher, if the truly luxurious hotels of the world (that no real people can afford) didn't exist :)

    For the beach just down the block, ask the front desk for some beach chairs, etc. They loan them out as part of the amenities, so you don't need to bring or buy your own.

    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.

    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!
