An honored recipient of the Hawaii Tourism Authority's prestigious Kahili Award, the Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach offers free daily workshops taught by well-respected teachers of Hawaiian music, art and culture. The 16-story tower of the Outrigger Waikiki has been offering soaring vistas of the Diamond Head summit since 1967, and if you're a music fan, the Outrigger is a repository of artifacts and information regarding the bygone era of the Waikiki Beach Boys. Feast on prime American steak at Chuck's Steak House, or hang out at Duke's Canoe Club for live Hawaiian sounds every night, along with the freshest of Waikiki fish on your plate.

Too Noisy

WE had stayed out the outrigger before and found it very comfortable but I was extremeley disappointed with our last visit there and will not be staying there again. It was a Christmas getaway for us and we were hoping to rest up and that did not happen. The noise from our adjoining rooms was unacceptable both early in the mornings (5.30 - 6.00 am) and in the middle of the night. Finally when the people next door had left we were woken in the middle of the night by a sewer truck emptying the sewerage at the cheescake factory next door - this went on for ages. When we spoke to the staff about it they really didn't care. The fact that it is also a time share property was also a problem as the pool was always reserved for the so called regulars. Very annoying when you had also paid your money. Position is however fabulous - perhaps try one of the neighbouring hotels instead.

Great location

The location of the hotel is fabulous - it is unfortunately getting tired, and the noise insulation between the rooms is terrible and so if you are unfortunate to get a noisy family next door or partying girls - like us then you are not going to be getting any sleep. Hotel staff did nothing to fix the problem.

nothing special

this hotel is definitely blessed with the best location in waikiki. you are smack in the middle of everything and even have a pretty nice stretch of beach to enjoy. however, that's about as far as the pros go. the cons greatly outweigh the benefits at this hotel. 1. it's old and it shows. the stores on the bottom level are outdated and irrelevant. rooms are tiny and do not live up to the level that the outrigger pretends to be at 2. staff is unfriendly and sometimes downright rude. it's fortunate that this is hawaii and most of the time you will be on the beach anyways. but if you ask housekeeping for extra towels or anything else, be ready to take some attitude. 3. ridiculous rates...the rates on orbitz for this hotel are just outrageous, you would be better off walking in than making a reservation through orbitz. we got ripped off and when we got to the hotel, the people there tried to push a "partial ocean view" room onto us for $50 more a night. of course we declined; when we got to our "regular" room, we noticed that we still had partial ocean view anyways. what a rip-off 4. the pool area is tiny. i guess you could go to dukes and have drinks but you don't need to be a hotel guest to enjoy this feature seriously, if you are on vacation in hawaii and have the money to spend on staying at the outrigger, i suggest you stay somewhere else. there are PLENTY of other options out there that are in the same location.

excellent location/ beach

liked the hotel and location, staff was very pleasant and freindly.However, be aware of packages organized by the hotel,they are too expensive.Call the places and make your own arrangements and you will save alot.

Average Only But Good Location

Housekeeping was not up to par. A couple times, housekeeping never refilled our soap/shampoo products and tub never seemed to be cleaned every day. Lanai railing never wiped as it always had the same bird [*]. Rooms don't have flat screen TV's. Pool was so small and not enough sunbathing chairs...all of them were always taken. I stayed at Sheraton Waikiki last year and it was way better especially the new pool. The only thing good about it is the central location in waikiki and close proximity to everything. Public parking was only valet which was not great coz it meant you had to tip the valet each time.Duke's Restaurant in the hotel is good for buffet breakfast. Dinner was okay but did include buffet salad bar.

Good Place to stay in Waikiki

Though in a very convenient location the drive to the hotel can be inconvenient. The driveway crosses a major sidewalk that makes the approach to the valet parking inconvenient. The valet parking gang did a really good job getting our car quickly. Most of the time they helped with "crowd control" to get in and out of the driveway. The hotel room was clean and well stocked with the standard amenities. Though I only spoke to the guest services people a few times each time they were informative and helpful. I could easily recommend this hotel to people that need to stay in Waikiki.

Mediocre hotel in excellent location

Rooms area bit small, beds are average, you have to swipe a room key to use the elevators which gets annoying, small gym with a decent view, Duke's on the first floor has great food and really good prices especially for being right on the beach, the Outrigger is in the direct center of Waikiki Beach, aimed at somewhat younger crowd, bands by the pool nearly every afternoon but also means they close the pool/spa around 3 or 4pm., staff are great, decent shops downstairs, also right across the street from the International market. May stay there again but prefer a couple other hotels a bit more then walk over and eat at Duke's.

Duke's is great for any meal, on the beach, inexpensive, great food but if you want some of the best food in Waikiki go to the Halekulani's House Without A Key without a reservation or Halekulani's Orchids with a reservation.

rooms very small

I was very dissatisfied with the room. It was probably the smallest room I have had in the 10 or so times we have been to Hawaii. The location of course is ideal, but the street noise was constant outside our room and the aircondtioning did not keep it cool enough. The bathroom wasn't big enough to keep anything in it. The staff didn't seem to care about taking care of our needs at all. All in all my husband and I were shocked at the fact that as pricey as the Hotel was, we avoided our room as much as possible. We will never stay there again.

Nice enough

Nice enough if your just spending the day at the beach but you can find better beaches a lot cheaper on your own on the east and north sides of the island. Way to expensive and to many rules about cocktails. Not a cheap date.
