Five night stay at Moana Surfrider

You cannot get much better than this. Was there five days and sat on the beach for four of them. Getting back and forth from room to beach ws a snap! Concierge was big help in locating restaurants and getting a one day car rental. They were very knowledgeable. Staff was great from minute we checked in until we departed in shuttle back to airport. Breakfast buffet well worth the money. Only glitch was having to pay $5 for a bottle of water at snack bar by pool. Thought that was a little much. Went to ABC and bought my own and also realized there was water at the beach towel stand for free. Would definitely stay again.

Classic, historical elegance

The Surfrider is aptly named as the waves are perfect just off the beach in front of the hotel. The charm of the historical aspects of the banyan rooms are complemented by the trendiness and elegance of the tower. Overall, the vibe and ambience are soothing and peaceful despite being in the heart of Waikiki. I would highly recommend the stay to couples and those seeking history and relaxation over hubbub and distractions.

Beautiful Hotel

The Moana Surfrider is an amzingly beautiful hotel full of character. It takes you back to the early 1900's. It's is perfectly located on the beach, which made it very easy to go to our room at any given moment. Many wedding couples appeared to take their weeding photos at this prestigious hotel. The hotel was lcated in themiddle of everything. We would definitely stay there again.

Shopping tip: Short walk from hotel

There are many shops within walking distance, if not right across the street. ABC (Aloha Brings Customers) is on every corner of the strip which makes it convenient. The internatinal marketplace is right across the street and they have alot of vendors...keep in mind, you can always find a deal. Barter with them if they say no...there is always another vendor 5 feet away.

Wow what an amazing hotel

This hotel has the charm and grace of an old southern mansion. I chose this hotel because it was completely different from anything on the island. The staff was amazing and I was impressed by the friendliness and caring that I received from everyone there. Excellent service, great rooms and a really great price.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

There are a ton of local and chain restaurants nearby. I highly recommend eating at those instead of the hotel. The pricing for in-hotel eating was astronomical.

Simply the Best on the Beach

The hotel is first class Westin-class. The stately historical manor-type accommodations, bedding, scenery, and cleanliness was as you would expect at the Westin properites that I have frequented. The only downside besides a minor door hinge issue in the 100 year old hotel was that the pool was a square, predictable design with little bar service and a hedge that blocked the view of Waikiki beach. I recommend that people rent the beach unbrellas and chairs on the sand to get the full experience. The bar under the Banyon Tree by the water and the live music are superb.

Time-saving tip: Not Applicable

Don't rent a car. Valet is expensive at $33/day. Driving is frustrating - traffic is nuts. If you want to get away, grap a cheap tour. Nightlife is an easy walk for a weeks' worth if you want to leave the hotel. The bus and taxi's are easy and cheap as well.
