a little disappointed

A little disappointed...the room was quite small and not as welcoming as depicted online; the safe in the room didn't work and when we asked to move to another room instead of wait for the repair technician, we were told to use the safe at the front desk - had to spend a couple of hours to wait; three front desk staff members that we dealt with were not very nice at all...could not even say hello or thank you; and bathroom had a dingy smell. On the other hand, some of the staff members like the garage attendant, pool-side attendant handing out the towels, a couple of the housekeeping members - they made us feel appreciated.

Despite of the little disappointment described above, the hotel was centrally located to almost everything...the beach, International Market, all sorts of restaurants, and fairly close to the airport.

Never Again !!

I stayed at this hotel back in the late 70's and into the early 90's. I quite enjoy the location, that's where my enjoyment stops. The hotel is in terrible condition.I can't believe this is a Sheraton, I should have stuck to my regular Hilton chain. I got taken in by the sale price on the room. Yes, I thought I was getting a deal that seemed to good to be true. I paid just over $600 for 5 nights, plus the $12 per day resort fee ( which was good value ). The elevator is very old and shows it. The foyer you exit the elevator on the 10th floor shows a 3-4 sq ft section of water damage. The wallpaper was falling off. The room was very tiny, the bathtub/shower even smaller.The Tv was positioned on the dresser off to one side and level with the bed. It made it impossible for the person furthest from the Tv to watch it over the other person laying on the bed.This is not a Sheraton by comfort and features, only by name. Sheraton should be embarressed!!

If You Stay...Upgrade, Upgrade, Upgrade

This hotel promised renovations a few years ago. Now complete, only 2 of 3 wings were done. The lower rates advertised to get you there will give you a room in the Kaiulani Wing with 20-30 year old fixtures, an old 26" TV and a bad view of the loading docks with late night/early morning truck and vehicle noises. If you select this hotel, go for the better rooms in the nicer wings with an ocean view. Beware, there is a resort fee of $12/day additional for 2 bottles of water, parking (if you have a car rental), internet, and a special location and services tiny Waikiki Beach.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Use the transit system - get a 4-day unlimited bus pass for $25 or monthly for $60. The bus is $2.50 each way and can take you to many of the same attractions that tour buses take you (Pearl Harbor, different Malls, restaurants, Sea Life Park, Hanauma Bay, Aloha Tower, Chinatown, North Shore beaches and locations, etc.).

Not your best deal

Have stayed here before and loved it. This experience with a "Princess" room was a major disappointment. We were expecting no balcony or view, but windows that barely opened and delivery and garbage trucks at all hours of the night put it over the top. We would not stay there again.

Excellent location, but noisy at night

The windows are single pane so you can hear everything even on the 8th floor. There was a street performer that didn't quit till midnight. Bring ear plugs! The location is amazing - close to everything! The room we stayed in was outdate, but. I do believe they are in the middle of renovating? Maybe they'll put in new window's/sliding doors? Housekeeping might want to step it up a notch as I found hair in the corners of the bathroom when got up to the room. This hotel would be great for those that partake in the night life. The resort fee which includes parking is reasonable.

decent but old, great location!

The hotel is in desperate need of a makeover. The rooms are clean, but definately old. There was rust on the fixtures in the bathroom and the water pressure was just sad. We found a cockroach in the bathroom one morning too. We had "upgraded" to a room with a partial ocean view. I wish they would've told us that there was music nightly. It was extremely loud, and it made trying to go to bed early nearly impossible. At least the bed was comfortable! The location is fabulous. It's close to the beach, shopping, and restaurants. In the end though, I don't think we will stay here again, unless they go through a major renovation.

Ideal for shopping & hanging at Waikiki

Things our family enjoyed: Nightly entertainment by the pool. Complimentary arts & crafts activities in the lobby. Across the street from Waikiki beach! Plenty of shopping and dining options in the area. Things we didn't like: Small pool, expensive breakfast (they only offer buffet), and no room service until late afternoon.

Entertainment tip: In Hotel

We stayed on the 4th floor overlooking the pool with a direct view of the stage that features nightly entertainment. It was perfect for those nights when we wanted to relax in our room and still catch some entertainment from our balcony.
