Hotel Renew

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The staff at this location is absolutely amazing, Sarah working at the check-in counter was a great help! She was extremely friendly and provided excellent advice in helping us select locations around the island. Furthermore, Chris working upfront found my sun glasses and returned them to the me hours later, I thought I had lost them for good! Such an amazing staff and most of all the location was on point near all the locations I was interested. Rented a moped around the corner made it even easier to move around the island!!!

Thank you for a wonderful experience. We loved Hawaii! Hotel Renew was great, clean, and the staff was super friendly!

beach time, shoping,eating...................................................................

Close to the beach. Very clean room. Low key and quiet and very accommodating staff.

Dark hallways. Very small. No privacy for bathroom use with frosted glass inlays on wall and door. No balcony. 25$ fee for pastry breakfast.

Very happy with location as it was just out of the really busy sections of Wakiki beach and small enough to feel personally connected to the staff.

Had one night stay and found this hotel online. Check in process was seamless and staff was very friendly which was a nice welcoming experience after a long flight. Our room overlooked the Waikiki beach and coast line along with a good view of Diamond Head. Breakfast was good, but was included as a required upgrade for $25. It included some other perks although not a great benefit for a one night stay. Overall, our stay was a pleasant surprise and we would definitely recommend staying here and would do so again.

Great hotel only 1 block from Waikiki Beach! The staff is very friendly and more than glad to help with your needs. The hotel is spotless and well kept. My husband and I would definitely stay at Hotel Renew if we ever get back to Honolulu.

This was our first time in Oahu. Upon arrival we tried parking ourselves since there wasn't anyone visible in front of the hotel for Valet parking. Though once we were in there small parking area Chris came out to greet us and was super nice. Lobby was nice and I loved that they had cold pineapple juice and chilled towels for us as we check in. We were straight up to the 9th floor. Inside the room it was clean and we liked the modern decor. Bed was comfy. Through out our stay all the staff was very helpful with any questions we had about restaurants or things todo. We loved staying there and wouldn't mind staying there again if we ever travel back to Oahu. If I had anything negative to say is that they charge 25 per night for parking and another 25 for breakfast. So on top of what we had already paid, we ended up paying an additional $350 plus tax. It should be less since breakfast is only juices, cereal, fruit and small pasteries. I was hoping for a little more. Oh and one of the days they gave brought out to us our rental car we noticed they must had backed in too much and they hit the back. It was just a scratch and you could tell it happened there since there was still concrete dust. We almost got blamed for this at the rental car place, but the manager there was cool and let it go. All in all we were happy when we left and would recommend this hotel.

We loved it.. We if we are to come back we will be at the same hotel

Would stay here again without any doubt. Very good location and knowledgable and attentive staffs.

The rooms have a musty/moldy smell. Great location. Excellent, friendly staff.

Great value and location. Not A lot of amenities but that is what I like about a boutique hotel. It is exactly what I hoped for and will be back again.

Really close to the beach and all restaurants. Small hotel but has everything you need. Good value.

The hotel was amazing, great rooms and great staff! There aren't a lot of amenities, but the bar was cute and friendly and what else do you need... it's steps from the beach! One of the best clubs in Waikiki is just a block around the corner and small convenience stores including liquor is just steps away. You could stay in the rooms all day, so cozy and nice décor... but it's even nicer outside.

We loved everything about this hotel! The staff was extremely friendly and the room was BEAUTIFUL. It was in a great location being a block away from Waikiki Beach and it was very helpful that we could get beach towels from the front desk. We're just sad that we didn't get to take advantage of the free drinks and continental breakfast because our stay was so short...

The hotel is just one block from the beach. The staff was very welcoming and helpful throughout. Clean and quiet. The amenities package may or may not be of interest depending on your needs. Overall very pleased with the experience.

However, the "mandatory" amenity fee should disclose to customers at the time of booking!

cozy and clean!!! really warm and professional staff

I had the opportunity to stay at this hotel for the first time 2 weeks ago and it was great. I found the hotel to be better than most of what you will find in Waikiki for the price point. The location is perfect and you feel quite safe staying here.

Aloha!!! Mahalo for choosing to stay with us and for providing valuable feedback of your experience. We’re glad you enjoyed our close proximity to our famous Kuhio Beach, restaurants, shopping outlets, and tourist attractions. Thank you for mentioning Sarah and Chris. I’ll be sure to pass along your regards! We are dedicated to touch all we encounter with integrity and the gracious spirit of “Aloha” as we fulfill the dreams of our guest. We’re sorry for the challenges you experienced with our room and building smell. Unfortunately on the side road of our building is where ours and nearby neighbors grease trap is located. During scheduled maintenance the awful smell from the pump radiates throughout the surrounding area. We sincerely apologize for the inconvenience this caused you. Overall we hope you had a positive experience on O’ahu, and enjoy all the adventure our island has to offer. Best wishes! Me Ke Aloha Pumehana, (with warmest aloha) Natasha Akee Guest Services Coordinator

Very happy with location as it was just out of the really busy sections of Wakiki beach and small enough to feel personally connected to the staff.
