Queen Kapiolani Hotel is named for the beloved wife of King David Kalakaua. The spirit of regal patronage lives on in the historic portraits and candle chandeliers which line the lobby, while the generous 'aloha' welcome is rolled out with lomi lomi (hot stone) massages at Honua Spa. The serene 3rd floor pool deck at this smoke-free hotel has a bar staff ready to hand guests cocktails fit for royalty. Eat waffles to your heart's content at the morning buffet on Kulana Terrace, while the tides of Waikiki Bay ebb and flow, and the forested summit of Diamond Head Crater looms in the near distance.

Neighborhood
Located directly between Kuhio Beach and Kapiolani Park, guests are never far from days of canoe rides, surf lessons and languid catamaran trips. Some of Oahu's best nightly events take place around the Waikiki area, with hula dances and torch processions down on the sands. There's also plenty of native marine life waiting at Waikiki Aquarium, as well as the motley crew of animals, from skunks to orangutans to zebus, at Honolulu Zoo in the park - less than half a mile away.
Hints and tips
If you're an animal lover, book a room on the Kapahulu side of the hotel - facing the zoo, you can be literally be awakened by the call of the wild.

Before leaving Waikiki, order dessert at Roy's, a local restaurant known for its Hawaiian specialties. The fresh-to-order upside-down pineapple cake is a signature treat.

Awesome as usual!

I had an awesome stay as usual. Hotel is conveniently located right by the beach. The food and service in the 3rd floor Bar/Restaurant area was very good. There are also 2 ABC stores just a few steps away. The staff was incredible from Kawai and the boys at the bell desk to Steele and the other servers at the bar.

Amazing trip

We had an amazing time at the Queen Kapiolani. We booked a normal room on the 7th floor and it was a very nice room. I have to use a wheelchair to get around sometimes and I did have just a little issue getting into the room. If I stopped my chair at the door, and walked the rest of the way, it was fine. We had to wait almost 5 years to take our dream trip to Hawaii and a few days into our stay, the front desk manager bumped us up to the penthouse suite! The staff were all so kind and very quick to offer us any help we needed. The valet guys were especially friendly, which we really enjoyed! Tons of Aloha given freely here. The penthouse had AMAZING panoramic views of both the city, Waikiki beach and it provided everything we needed. They were both comfortably furnished, clean and seemed well maintained. Would DEFINITELY recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Honolulu! The absolute BEST vacation I've ever taken and we WILL be returning.

Pleasantly Surprised

I would definitely recommend this hotel to everyone. I found that it was the cheapest price in the area so I was a little hesitant about how nice it was going to be. I was pleasantly surprised. This is hotel is very nice, great location, clean nice rooms, and helpful staff. Very close to everything. Ocean is right across the street. Dining and shopping within short walking distance.

bait & switch

The rooms shown online are NOT the room you get upon check in. I know Honolulu is an expensive city to visit however for the $1300 I paid for 8 days I think the room should be better than your avg. roadside motel.The room was ok & fairly well kept, but lumpy hard mattresses & maybe 10 channels on tv as well as basically no water pressure in shower doesn't equal a $160 plus per night room.ONE drastically overpriced restaurant in house also limits your options.

Relaxing Experience

This is the second time we have stayed at this hotel. We love it here it is at the end of the strip of hotels. It faces Diamond Head and a nice park with the beach just across the street. If you are looking for a hotel out of the hustle & bustle of the crowd but with in walking distance of most things this hotel is for you.
