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.

Very friendly hotel

The Pacific Beach Hotel is a very comfortable hotel to stay in. The rooms are pretty spacious for a family. They have a great dining room in the hotel that has a HUGE aquarium with alot of sea life, including sharks that swim around while you dine. Great for kids and grownups alike to enjoy without going into the water. From the front desk personal upon check-in to the valet attendants...they are very professional, accomodating and best of all they are a group of employees with great personalities! They have the ALOHA spirit which is hard to find in these stressful and difficult times. Please tell the hotel employees know that their services are greatly appreciated....

Excellent choice for short getaway!

The Pacific Beach Hotel is in a great location, allowing you to enjoy all in Waikiki. A car rental is not necessary unless you want to see the North shore or other areas of the island outside of Waikiki.There are many restaurants + shops available in the hotel that anyone would enjoy. Huge aquarium tank in two of the hotel restaurants making meals fun for people of all types + ages. The rooms are small but the bed was very comfortable, good shower, + clean room + bathroom. We had a nice ocean view from our balcony. We would stay here again. We were very happy with everything at this hotel.

Great First Visit

The main plus for the hotel is location and value. Rooms were fairly standard, but clean and comfortable. We had the partial ocean view and that was nice. Restaurants offered plenty of options and the overall hotel staff was very accommodating. Our room was not cleaned during one day of the stay and that's the only bad mark. When you're out all day, coming back late at night and finding unmade beds and no clean towels a bummer. Staff did replace the towels, though. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and will consider the Pacific Beach Hotel again should we vacation in Ohau.

Close to everything

Pacific Beach is in an excellent location. It is a step away from the beach, eating and shopping. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. However, the room was a bit run down with horrible stains in the carpet and the hotel could use about 5 more elevators. There was always a wait for the elevators. Great price though for the location!
