Like living in the time of Duke Kahanamoku!

From the moment you drive into entrance of the famous pink hotel, it just conjures up memories of what it must have been like back in the Twenties when the hotel in the early days of Duke Kahanamoku and the original Hawaiian "beach boys". For me extra special in that my grandmother sailed here in the early Fifties from Australia to experience the same that I enjoyed today. Nothing finer that a couple of Mai Tais at the Mai Tai Bar with Diamond Head in the background at sunset and just walking the grounds and the lobby areas as well as the historic hall way with the great images of yesteryear and those that have stayed in the "Pink Lady". If you're going to Hawaii it's a must do, to experience the "Old School" vibe of Waikiki. Can't wait to do it again!

Hawaii Trip 2014

We were amazed at the beauty of the Roysl Hawaaiian, giving that Hawwaiian feel. The staff was amazing in every way. The luau was entertaining and food was delicious. The history of the pink hotel dating back to 1927, loved the shops, exercising room was a plus.

If you're staying in Waikiki, it's easier to pick up a car rental from the Sheraton Waikiki location. It is much faster than at the airport.

Amazing hotel!!

The Royal Hawaiian exceeded our expectations!! The hotel was gorgeous, staff went above and beyond, food was great, and the location couldn't have been better!! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely be back soon! Just be prepared that everything at the hotel is expensive, but in our opinion worth it!

Memorable Stay

We really enjoyed our stay at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Waikiki. The hotel is historic and beautiful. The hotel staff was courteous, helpful and so helpful. We received leis, moist washcloths, and a glass of refreshing juice at check-in. Our favorite spot at the hotel was the Mai Tai Bar next to the beautiful beach. We spent a lot of time on the beach just steps from the bar. I also loved the toiletries in the bathroom. We will definitely be back for another stay. It was so wonderful!

The Royal Hawaiian is a little pricey, but it was WONDERFUL!! Convenient to shopping and eating places, a beautiful beach front with sea turtles near by and very, very quiet and relaxing. The grounds surrounding the hotel can't be matched in this location.
