Loved it so much we plan on moving here next year!!!

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 10 days in March 2013. It is in a perfect location. We didnt even rent a car. You could walk to everything or take the bus. Free internet which was a really good signal. They give you a coupon book for a lot of 50% off things, which we used for breakfast in the hotel's restaurant "shore bird." It was an all you can eat for $16 a person. We got really full on breakfast then skipped lunch a few days. They have a pool and THREE hot tubs! You can not take alcohol out onto the beach though so we had to pour some into water bottles. sshhhh.When you walk out the back of the hotel, you are on the beach. The hotel was priced the same as the surroundng hotels. We absolutely fell in love with the weather, friendly people, and good food. We are looking at houses in a few months :)

There are so many restaurants within walking distance that we didnt even rent a car. Check your hotel for coupons and check groupon ahead of time (we used 9 groupons that week). We made sure to have a coupon for at least one meal a day and it was super easy and saved some money!

Hawaiian getaway

We had just come from the Ritz in Maui, so maybe this hotel had that going against them. I only booked this hotel because of the location, which was nice. There were plenty of things to walk to. There were also restaurants and shops in the lobby, which was very convenient. My main disappointment was the room. I booked a 2 double bed room, with a pullout, but when I arrived, they only had 1 king. They were sold out, so had no other rooms, which left us without enough sleeping space. Overall, for the price, it was just meh. If it's location you want, then go for it, but nothing special about the rooms. They were clean at least.

Great retirement present

I wanted to thank my dad for his many years of providing for the family and this hotel stay helped to show my appreciation. He was pleased at the the quality of the materials in the hotel room. As an engineer, he commented on the fine craftsmanship of the furniture and the quality air conditioner system (not the cheap systems found in other hotels). He's quirky, I know, but since he was overall very happy, I was too!

Room is clean and good service. The hotel is conveniently located next to the beach. Valet parking is on the expensive side.

Paradise waiting for you

The staff were extreamly welcoming and helpful, nothing was a problem for them. The trips available through the hotel are great and are fully arranged for you whislt there or prior to arrival. The restaurants within the hotel provided fantastic food and service especially the Ocean House restaurant. The sunset dinner is an absolute must. Love the fact that you step out of the hotel straight onto the beach. Local shops and main shopping strip are nearby. I would definately recommend this hotel to others looking to travel to Waikiki and would happily return. A truly wonderful experience.
