The Royal Hawaiian - A Luxury Collection Resort is filled with the history, romance and casual sophistication of Hawaiian culture, blended with the charm of Spanish-Moorish architecture. Opened in 1927, the perfectly pink luxury hotel is known as the Pink Palace of the Pacific. Premium tower rooms feature spacious work desks and private balconies with sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean. Rooms are also available with views of the hotel's tropical gardens. On-site dining options at The Royal Hawaiian share the traditional Hawaiian culture of hula, luaus, storytelling and songs.

Fun & Relaxing Honeymoon

The location and hotel was beautiful. The hotel's backyard was the beach, and that made the ability to relax so convenient and loved having the ocean be in our view. The room could of been cleaner, some areas of the carpet had crumbs and the bed and pillow sheets had these brown spots on them. Though the staff were friendly and changed them. Overall, thank you to the staff and the hotel stay was good. My wife and I had a honeymoon experience we won't forget.

When we arrived at the hotel, the staff assigned us a room in historic building. But the rooms in historic building are old. And the staff changes the room in the new building. The rooms in the new building are great.

Pure Luxury

Everything at the hotel was outstanding. The hotel staff were friendly and helpful. After a day, they greeted us by name. Our room was very spacious ( Jr. Suite - an upgrade using our Starwood Gold card status ) and we were given anything we asked for. We visited Pearl Harbor, the Marine Corps Headquarters at K Bay, The Dole Pineapple Plantation, drove up to the North Shore, watched fireworks from a catamaran, sunbathed, and enjoyed Waikiki Beach. The main strip is very commercial, with every designer shop imaginable, from Prada to Gucci and Hermes. We did not shop in those stores, but the store personnel in the other shops in general were very pushy, trying to hustle you into buying anything. We did not appreciate the commercial aspect of the Waikiki area, and the beach, while it is beautiful, is very crowded.

Sightseeing tip: Not Applicable

Be aware that there is a tremendous traffic problem in Honolulu. There are many, many tour busses, and you need to be selective about the tours you take because you will be stuck in afternoon traffic if you have an early dinner engagement planned.

Hawai'i the first time

The Royal Hawaiin/Tower is one of few hotels located on the beach at Waikiki and the prettiest one by far! It was nice to walk out to the beach and not cross traffic. We did not eat at any of the restaraunts located within due to extremely high cost for value. We loved the view from the balcony. Staff were VERY helpful and professional!! Its grounds were awesome, set in a nice small tropical landscape. We liked how close it is to shops and restaraunts as we did not rent a car. We took the bus to and from the airport and Pearl Harbor, the bus stops being only one street away from the hotel. It was a very nice introduction for our first time in Hawai'i!!!

Don't hang out with pro golfers or you could end up like Allenby. Yet we never felt uncomfortable while there at night or day.
