The Pacific Beach Hotel in Hawaii's Oahu is a haven for both children and those who once were children. The three-story, 280,000-gallon aquarium is a big hit, along with the arcade, pool and whirlpool. For the sports enthusiast, there are on-site tennis courts and jogging trails nearby. The Oceanarium Restaurant will draw everyone to the table with a colorful seafood buffet, and the Polynesian Dinner Show is a fire-blazing spectacle not to be missed. The hotel also wins points for being one of the most environmentally friendly locations on the island of Oahu; certain rooms use only recycled or biodegradable products and limit energy consumption.

Neighborhood
The Pacific Beach Hotel is located across from Kuhio, the calmest section of ocean in the area, and guests can enjoy lodging on Kalakaua Avenue, a popular stretch for visitors that includes many shopping and dining options next to Waikiki Beach. High-end retailers like Cartier and Apple share the space with outside vendors selling trinkets and souvenirs. Many famous chain restaurants can be found, including California Pizza Kitchen. The Honolulu Zoo is only a 10-minute walk away.
Hints and tips
When you book your stay, ask for an oceanfront room above the fifth floor for the most impressive window panoramas.

Consider stocking up on snacks or small breakfast treats at the ABC Store in the lobby - they might come in handy during early morning tour excursions.

Excellent Hotel, Great Service

The staff was friendly, and helped us in every way possible. It was also next to the beach. Many shops were nearby, and the zoo was within walking distance. I will go here again the next time that I am in Honolulu.

Great weekend getaway

The Pacific Beach Hotel is located in the best spot in Waikiki Beach, among other 4-5 star hotels that costs twice as much. While unassuming on the outside, the service was great and the stretch of beach right outside has a barrier made up of large stones. That made for a safe swimming area for when one wants to just relax, and also an area just outside the barrier where one can swim with or against the famous Waikiki tide. My wife loves to shop, and within 5 minutes there are so many shops she can go to shop. The parking, at $ 15 per day during off season that has unlimited leave and entry, is reasonable and convenient for us. All together it is a very relaxing vacation for us. It is great for those who has been to Honolulu many times, doesn't want to do too much sight-seeing or other activities, and enjoys dipping in the ocean.

Money-saving tip: Short drive from hotel

We recommend eating in the food court of the Ala Moana shopping complex. It is a short drive from the hotel or a short taxi ride, but it has many selections, the cost reasonable for Hawaii, and generally very good quality.

fantastic location and staff

From check in to check out, a fantastic experience. Walk to beach,shopping and dining all in a matter of minutes. Helpful staff made booking tours easy. Would definitely stay again. The only complaint we came up with, the beds and pillows are too hard.

great service, great location

We stayed for an entire week, so take our word, this hotel has great service and is in a great location. We stayed for our wedding anniversary. We found it easily even though it can be tricky due to one way streets. It is directly across from the beach. Less than one minute commute! They upgraded us to partial ocean view..really nice gesture and we loved it. The lanai had a wonderful view! The rooms were nice but not extravagant. No microwave, but a small fridge, iron,flat screen tv. bath/shower..the beds were nice and soft..thank God, don't do well on hard matresses..the room was cleaned well except there were cobwebs on the ceiling--yuck! only complaint about the hotel.. The staff is genuinely friendly and very helpful. They respond yes, maam and sir which is refreshingly polite. Rooms were always stocked towels and cleaned daily.. The pool is on the small side and doesn't have a view, the hot tub was alright--hot but a little murky..definitely not there for those features though..the parking lot is less($15/day) than at other hotels although there are better parking deals to be found if you really, really look--but who wants to play find the car when you really need to go..Oh if you want to work out at the 24hr. Fitness you can get a discount from the front desk--$12 instead of $20--not bad for using state of the art equipment with a great view.. Close to restaurants the international marketplace too. Good restaurants: the italian restaurant two blocks east, sit down and fancy ($$$) but good food and great service & ambiance Surprisingly, Denny's has some great healthy choices the tapia fish plate, and the grilled chicken sandwiches were healthy and light on the wallet..The hotel itself had an admirable breakfast, to order from the menu--albeit not alot of variety.. they did have a great breakfast buffet however--just high $$$..But to be honest, my wife and I saved $$ by buying fruit and cereal boxes at safeway when we came in..

Wonderful staff

This was my first visit to Hawaii and the Hotel made sure I had all the information on sites to see and local information I needed. The rooms were very nice and was located directly across the beach. We had a wonderful view of Diamond Head and the ocean. I would recommend this hotel to my friends and family. The breakfast bar was outstanding and always hot.
