Staff and amentities great - location wonderful- hula class great

Great Honolulu experience. The only thing I don't like it they charge you a $31.00+ "Waikiki Connection" fee. I kind of feel like they are "nickel and diming" you.

Great hotel on the beach. A little pricy but worth every penny. Would do again.

This was a very nice hotel and great location , my only complaint is all their little extra charges they get you with after you have already payed a arm and a leg to stay there.

I treated myself to an extravagant birthday gift of a long weekend in Hawaii. I did my research spending a few hours exploring hotel and room options, locations, costs. I selected the Outrigger Waikiki Beach Resort. It's located right on a beautiful and swimmable beach and is well situated on the Waikiki strand. It has a nice pool and adequate pool chairs. Holiday decorations were festive. Reservation staff were nice. A glitch in my (paid for) Orbitz hotel registration caused the hotel to not have my reservation -- a 1-bedroom beachfront suite. They found a comparable room on the 7th floor...however the view was so-so and I discovered it had termites. Wood piles were near a credenza and lamp table. Made me very uncomfortable and suggested the room wasn't used - or cleaned - often. When I needed late checkout I was told my room was already reserved and I'd have to switch rooms if I wanted to stay - at $25/hour. Other disappointments: Room air conditioning is poor. A noisy unit never cooled the rooms. I splurged paying 3x what I normally spend on a room. I expected quality furnishings, more amenities and NO TERMITES -- or at least no evidence of them! Elevators are frustratingly slow. No cold beer at the lobby bar - on a Saturday afternoon; I couldn't order an appetizer until 5pm. I wasn't allowed to take my beer to my room. All the little things added up to BIG DISAPPOINTMENT. I travel a lot. I wouldn't stay here again.

From the minute we arrived we were made welcome with cold island drinks. This hotel was everything that it advertised. The staff was very knowledgeable and helped us to book all our tours.

This was our first time staying at this hotel, and we were not disappointed. From the valet, to the check-in staff, to housekeeping, everyone was extremely friendly and helpful. The entire staff quickly accommodated every request we made. Our room was quite spacious and very well kept. Instead of fighting over which devices we would be able to connect to the WiFi, they provide access for up to 8 devices. I really liked that they left complementary bottles of water in the room each day. Housekeeping made certain to leave extra towels for us since we were showering a couple of times a day due to all the hiking we were doing. We had a rental car, so we didn't take advantage of the free private trolleys they provide their guests to get around Waikiki. We often travel with a group of family members and they would definitely take advantage of this service the next time they come with us. Some reviews we read mentioned trouble getting chairs by the pool, but we never had any issues getting chairs when we went. Perhaps it was the time of year we were visiting and/or the time of day (8am) we went. The activities desk was excellent in helping us choose & book some activities for the week. Many of the prices of the activities were cheaper than what we had found ourselves online.

The location is in the heart of Waikiki. I stayed for five nights. Everyone in the staff who I interacted with were professional and friendly. I had a one bedroom suite with a view of the beach, pool, and partial Diamondhead. The beach outside the hotel is large and the water level in ocean allows you to wade out quite a ways and water is fairly calm. Definitely would stay here again.

We enjoyed our stay here and always felt safe, which is important to us. There was a nice selection of shops and lots of places to eat. The hotel gave us free shuttle service too, which was really nice. There were lots of places to eat in the hotel and we loved their breakfast buffets.

Elevator system is not good in my opinion. Restraunt lines too long w empty tables visibly in view. Would not recommend this island to friends. Traffic outrageous

I am very happy I decided to give outrigger another chance. Last year, we had one of the worst possible rooms imaginable. It overlooked the Cheesecake Factory and part of the Royal Hawaiian roof tops. The noise from the balcony was unbearable. This year, I booked an oceanfront room, and it perfect. We will likely return, and will most likely book the oceanfront room again. The location of this hotel can not be beat, right between the Moana and Royal Hawaiian.

Outrigger was not far from things to do in the area. They also help coordinate activities and provide shuttle to the events. I had a great time.

Like the hotel, especially location. It's pretty clean, stuff is helpful. The bathroom lights seem to be on the verge of dying in every room (two rooms we've been in), they flicker like crazy, but the facilities replace them promptly. What also bites is the parking fee $35 per day + and the connection fee - a new thing, where they charge an extra 30+ per day for the internet - with no opt-out option! I needed to know before booking - as there are other options for extra $30 a day.

Great overall stay. Required Valet parking and resort fee added too much

Check in staff great. Upgraded our room because of inconvenience of road blockage due to street fair.

We loved staying at the Outrigger. Our favorite part was having The Duke's restaurant downstairs, it was the best atmosphere for night life daily. We also liked how well located the hotel is. Having beach access from the hotel makes a difference.The staff service was outstanding! The pool is a little tight and small for our taste but we get that there aren't much more space to spare in this very demanded area and the parking daily expense was absurd, $38 a night. We found parking on the street is a real problem in this area but we'll do anything to not spend that amount on parking.

Had an awesome time at the Outrigger Waikiki! Food from all of the restaurants was fantastic and right on the beach! We were in walking distance of all the shops and parks. Staff was also very nice. I highly recommend.

Beautiful, relaxing vacation! Weather was perfect, plenty of things to do at the hotel.

Great trip people at this hotel are the best in Honolulu!

Had a great time. Location perfect for active famiily. Loved Hula Grill breakfasts. Extra bonus was the hospitality suite. Had late flight but got to enjoy an entire day and shower before heading home. Thanks Outrigger!!
