Walking distance to Hawaii Convention Center.

Perfect walking distance to convention center & Ala Moana Mall. If you don't mind walking long distance, it is good walk to Waikiki beach too.

Excellent value

Impressed by the efficiency and friendliness of the staff. Although the hotel is situated on the very busy Ala Moana Boulevard there was very little street noise in our room. Appreciated the lemon iced water always available in the foyer area. Free WiFi in our room very useful. Internet computer and printer available for use for a fee in this same area. Short walk to the huge Ala Moana shopping centre. Other food stores including the ABC store and MacDonald's (if that is your choice) nearby. There is no lift from street level so I would suggest that this would not be a suitable hotel for anyone who has difficulty with stairs.

Excellant Service and Location

If you are looking for a clean, comfortable, well located room with the best Aloha, this is it. It is a third of the cost to stay in hotel right on the beach. Don't let the maps fool you. We were only a block from the Hilton Hawaiian Village and many great dining areas. We also walked to the big mall in about 10 minutes. Having the Lanai was a bonus. The hotel has some of the friendliest staff you will find in Waikiki.

You MUST go to the top of the Ilikai building to Sarentos. {across the street-kitty corner from the Equus} Friendly service, excellent staff and absolutely delicious food and small plates. On Wednesdays, they have a killer happy hour and 40% off food, get this....ALL NIGHT, not just for the typical 2 hours. The best views of the island, harbor and city. A great time. They also have great piano music.

Check out Gyu-Kaku Japanese BBQ. Each table has its own BBQ pit and you cook your own. Includes kobe beef steaks.

Housekeeping forgotten!

Great little hotel with wonderful location. Very helpful and cheery staff. Problem was on four out of our 21 day stay the daily housekeeping didn't happen till front desk told when we returned in the late afternoon. Very inconvenient but thanks to John for his efforts to sort out.
