Only good thing was the location

We are a family of six with children ages 6-11. It sleeps 6 but you have to rearrange the room to pull the beds down/out. Room needs a major overhaul. As soon as you walk in it smells like old grease. Kitchen has a small refrigerator, not a full sized one. I'm so glad we were only there 2 nights. I wouldn't have been able to tolerate much more than that.

Excellent location!

Our family stayed at the Imperial for one night on the tail end of our Oahu visit. The location is practically perfect: across the street from beach access; easy valet parking with free in and out privileges; restaurants and shops galore within a block's walk; since it's off the main drags (Kalakaua and Kuhio) it's not noisy and there isn't a ton of traffic. This is a great spot if you're after the classic Waikiki experience. Staff were really friendly and helpful. Kitchen was very well stocked (even a dishwasher!). Although our unit (a Palm model) was really cramped with five adults (and the bathrooms were airplane-esque in their tininess), you don't plan to spend much time in your room in Waikiki anyways. The room was spotless, and when we needed an extra rollaway, housekeeping was on it very quickly. The pool deck is a little dated-looking, but the views from the top are terrific - great view of the sunset the night we were there. Considering the size of our party, the price was decent (even taking parking into account) - if we were staying longer it would be an even better value since we would've made more use of the kitchen.

WOW Location

I stayed on the 22nd after reading another review that says grab anything above the 18th.Great advice. I was given a room on this floor facing the beach. breathtaking views. Sitting on the lanai watching the sunsets then an easy walk to find a restaurant for the evening meal or just walking around the corner to the great shopping opportunities. The location is without a doubt, one of the best in Waikiki. the hotel interior is a little tired looking but not enough to effect the whole experience. Anything like the interior is out weighed by the location. The room had a fully equipped kitchen

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

you dont need to shop at Luxury Row in waikiki. If you take a shuttle to Waikele premium outlets ( i took the Ali"i one) and you show your ticket at the info booth at waikele they will give you a free discount booklet. the savings i made using the booklet paid for the fare. I got a handbag at more than 50% of the original price and on top of that there were other discounts were being offered.

Disappointed

Being a timeshare owner at the Imperial I found this latest trip to the Imperial very disappointing. Gone was the very bustling activities center to help plan. The room's a/c must be tuned down or off during the day - never did work to cool room. Housekeeping services very poor as well-had to call each time for garbage disposal. Worst thing was having to rely on someone else parking your rental car-noticed a dent in rear bumper 4 hrs after picking it up but had no recourse as to who was responsible but in my heart feel it was the attendant parking car. Unfortunately , no proof so I am responsible. Just go over your car carefully each time it is dropped off and retrieved as SOME ELSE is driving and parking rental car in very cramped qrts! Only god thing about Imperial is location.

CAN'T BEAT THE LOCATION!!

One minute walk to the beach, near lots of restaurants and great shops. The studio rooms at Imperial are small, but have a small refrigerator, coffee pot and microwave. I recommend the one bedroom (Banyan) unit for couples and small families for a little room to spread out. The higher floors have at least a partial ocean view. The rooms were clean and it looks like every room has a balcony (lanai). We found the hotel staff to be very friendly and helpful. This is not the old Lewers Street area of the 70s and 80s. A lovely block-long boutique-style mall has recently been built, with a contemporary fountain and a large grassy area where there are free cultural shows with music and hula. Parking is very expensive everywhere in Waikiki, comparable to any major urban area, but you really don't need a car because there is so much within a short walking distance. If you want to drive, rent a car by the day for the days you need.

Money-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Pick up the free booklets in the rack in front of the hotel for discount coupons and two for one deals on restaurants, tours and activities.
