'The First Lady of Waikiki' was constructed at the turn of the 20th century, and the Moana Surfrider lives up to her elegant name as a Waikiki beachfront property. Upon arrival, you'll be treated to a signature Westin elixir, a fragrant flower lei, and a refreshingly chilled towel. Catch a great night's sleep on your Westin Heavenly Bed, and soak up traditional Hawaiian healing techniques and treatments inside Waikiki's only beachfront spa. High-end toiletries, superior linens, and comfortable bathrobes adorn the accommodations, while the refurbished lobby features hardwood floors, along with new fixtures and fittings.

Nice starting point for sight seeing. Visited historical areas and North Shore. Down side - Hotel room was listed as city view - but should have been listed as city audio. loud street noise into the early morning hours. Complained to staff but no offer to adjust.

Great Girl's Getaway

The hotel and the staff were friendly and courteous. The room was clean and the perfect size for our 4 night stay. Since we were staying at an ocean front hotel we did expect more hooks, racks to hang our wet towels and swimsuits. We were surfing as well and found that we were having to be very creative to hang our wet items. The food in the open dining area was disappointing. The prices were extremely high for the poor food quality and small portions. Although, the cocktails were generous. We did not try the formal dining room. We ate most of our meals at Dukes, next door. The food was delish and fresh and very reasonable. Other than the two issues mentioned above we had a wonderful time and will definately stay at the Westin again. The bed was heavenly! The hotel is beautiful and the location is fantastic.

Request a fridge as they are free and the Pantry grocery store is a mere two blocks away. Stocking your fridge with a few snacks and drinks makes for a more confortable experience and saves you a bit of cash.

Great place!

The hotel was amazing! I have stayed here many times, and all of the different types of rooms are beautiful. Located right on the beach, and right on the main Waikiki strip. The hotel gave us many options for activities, and we wanted to take advantage of as many of them as we could. We parasailed, scuba dived, hiked diamond head, went to the aquarium, lounged on the beach and drove to the North Shore. The hotel was extremely helpful with all of our needs. We loved sitting in front on the rocking chairs, and sitting at the beach bar under the banyan tree. The trip was amazing, and the beds in the hotel are a dream!

nice place

the hotel is great but a little snobish and many charges for all the little things the beach bar is awesome and all the bartenders have been there for nearly 30 years all of them call you by name and where you are from, from the time you give it to them and make for a good relaxing time. the restaurant is very very good but it is not cheap. there is more fun to be had next door at the outrigger (Dukes or Chucks) or at the royal hawaiian but being right on the beach is priceless and it is well worth getting the ocean view overall a great place and a great experience
