Park Shore Waikiki an Aqua Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel was clean and staff was extremely nice as well as helpful. It was a great location, across from the beach at the quieter end of Waikiki. I was very happy with the hotel and my stay. The only thing I'd change is to pay the extra money for a better view

I was lucky enough to be upgraded from a standard room to an ocean view. Waking up to Waikiki Beach each morning and being able to relax on the balcony and take it all in was absolutely fantastic. Very friendly / helpful staff. Only complaints would be the broken elevator / remodeling that was going on during our stay. Also, the pool is just average but I knew that when I booked the place. The beach is literally across the street though so might as well just swim there.

The hotel was older than I expected and the room was just OK, nothing to rave about, The view of the ocean from the room was spectacular. We only had the room for 1 night and at 4am we had to evacuate the hotel because of a busted water pipe on the 17th floor. This was not a great experience which caused us to be sleep deprived because our flight was to leave that evening.

across the street from the beach and park with an ocean view pool deck. the view rooms see diamond head as big as any hotel in all of waikiki. some rooms just have ocean view while others see diamond head too. cheaper rooms have no view. the hotel restaurant bar can be loud til 2:30 AM if your room is facing that way and or lower down. rooms seem smallish but bigger decks. lots of food venues within 5 min walk and kids beach or body surfing beach side by side. the zoo is 1 minute walk away and animal noises are cool to hear sometimes. less crowds this end of a very very busy waikiki. short walk to locals beaches and skin diving about as good as hanauma bay 100 yards out. we went to famous hanauma bay and the crowds were in the hundreds in the water and the h20 cloudy and reef destroyed within 50 yards. just by Mask snorkel and fins at ABC store in hotel lobby for about $25 a person. don't forget to check out and book Doris duke estate shangrala online before you fly over. we stayed 2 weeks April lots of sun with a little rain everyday

My husband and I were celebrating our 41 anniversary and stayed at the Park Shore. We had a view of Diamond Head and the beach that were amazing. The staff could not have been any more friendly and helpful. If I had to find one downside I would say we only had 6 drawers to put our clothes....not a big deal. We rented a car and the valet guys never took more than 3-5 minutes...they were great too. I liked the lower end of Waikiki because it wasn't as crowded and there is a park across he street with beautiful trees and benches to sit. I would stay there again!!!

Had a fantastic time. Great location and hotel staff was great

Clean rooms, super friendly staff! The location was perfect right on the end of the strip. Right on the beach.

I had selected this hotel and paid in advance for 6 nights based on a picture of a room with a king bed. When we got to the room it had 2 double beds in a room sized for only one and did not have a chair of any kind. No place to sit for any reason except a short bench which put your face within inches of the TV. I immediately called the desk that the room was not acceptable but was told there were no other rooms available. The next day I went to the front desk and made my displeasure known. At first the desk man said there was nothing he could do but a nice lady (boss) listened and looked at the computer and said put them in this room. It had a king bed and enough room to move around with having to walk sideways. She also said a chair would be brought there. A man brought 2 chairs. They were plastics outside ones but much better than nothing. After 61 years of marriage we like to have a place to sit and read an watch TV .

The Hotel is across the street from the beach. It is a short walk to Royal Hawaiian hotel. A $5 Uber ride if you don't want to walk. The bed was comfortable. We plan to return to this hotel in the future.

We really enjoyed our stay at Park Shore. Our son got married in Waikiki. Very nice place. Staff was friendly and helpful.

It's a very clean hotel and it just across the street from the beach and to the main Waikiki walk strip. Has an abc store at the bottom and lulus restaurant ! Which was great! Can't complain one bit.

Great location, friendly staff. Close to everything. The staff did let me check in early which was a great start of the vacation.

Terrible view supposed GARDEN /City view was actually a view of the huge Aston Waikiki Hotel rooms wall of glass and concrete. Average rooms but claustrophobic location in the hotel...of course they can upgrade you for another $50 nite...

Very good location near the park. Rental for bikes and mopeds just around the corner. Just few seconds from the beach and easy to go out the door for a run, walk or bike ride. Had late flight but hotel has special room for you to go change or take quick shower before heading to airport so you can still enjoy stay after checking out of room.

The hotel was nice, and very clean, our only complain was the extra charge of $20 daily for resort usage??

This hotel location could not be better! In addition, it's a very clean, well-maintained hotel with helpful staff. The pool is small, but nice. Standard rooms w/partial ocean views face the hotel next door and the alley - views are terrible, despite being able to see a bit of the ocean.

Really loved this hotel! So close to the beach. Literally out the door and across the street. Traveled with my teenage son and had a great Mother/Son trip. We didn't use the pool because we were at the ocean all day. Nice hotel features like towels & chairs you can borrow for beach, onsite Volvo convertible rental and shuttle to shopping. I've stayed at Hilton Hawaiian village in the past but really loved the smaller, more personal feel of the Park Shore and less crowds. And having restaurants and shops right outside the door of hotel was excellent!!! The beds in the room were really comfy and the air conditioner was one that cooled room well but wasn't overly loud or too cold. The only recommendation is bring water shoes. There are some areas with rough coral if you like going out a bit in the ocean. Buy an inner tube or float at the ABC store attached to the hotel and they will inflate it for you in the store. And you can store it on your lanai. Lastly, the staff was super friendly and consistently helpful!

Perfect location!! The parking (valet only) was not the greatest (difficult to enter and exit). The staff was very friendly. There is a bar in the building so the lower floors can get very noisy at night (I heard some older couples complaining)

This hotel had a great locaton and was clean. The bed was comfortable, the view was great. The room is on the small side and the resort fee is everyday. Also, you pay extra when you get to the hotel for an ocean view.

I would gladly stay there again, perfect location for families with small children.
