"Very convenient. Walking distance to everything."
It was my first time in Hawaii and the Ala Moana helped to make it a memorable stay. It is so conveniently located. I was able to walk or bus to everything I wanted to see while I was in Honolulu. I will definitely recommend the Ala Moana Hotel to my friends and will stay again, if I have a chance to revisit Hawaii.
I have been staying at the Pagoda whenever I visit the islands for the past 10 or so years. From the minute I speak with the Front Desk to the Housekeeping Crew, I totally enjoy my stay. Everyone is always so pleasant willing to do what they can to make my stay comfortable. Mahalo!
The hotel room had everything we needed for our trip: microwave, fridge, safe, ironing board and iron and a large TV. The room was large and ours had a balcony. There was also a laundry facility on the premises which we used. The facility also has a pool and an exercise facility which we didn't use. There are also two computers and a printer in the lobby for guest use. There is also a travel concierge in the lobby. Tour pickups are just across the street and there are good coffee shops, a McDonalds, a Red Lobster, and several ABC stores within a short walking distance City busses also run along the street. Very convenient. The hotel is basic, no frills, no luxuries. But it had everything we needed. We liked it.
Overall we had a great experience at the Equus. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nice. Our two biggest complaints have more to do with the location of the hotel than anything the hotel can change now:
1) It is a rather hard hotel to find. It is very narrow and the valet parking location is not obvious like it would be at a bigger hotel.
2) There is a significant flight of stairs to get into the hotel and main lobby. There is no alternate entrance or elevator. For most people this is not a problem, but for my family (we had a 2 year old and stroller) it was a bit of a nuisance everytime we went in or out.
Other than that, it was really a nice hotel.
I would have to say for someone who is from fancy Las Vegas and has never been to Hawaii this was a perfect getaway! I read some of the bad reviews which I never saw any of those issues. The room was very clean and the hotel staff was amazing! When I return I will be choosing this hotel again. I arrived about 7 hours late due to terrible delays through United Airlines and the staff was very friendly able to meet every need I had. Great views of the ocean even from a "partial view room" . Thank You Marina Towers!
