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.
"Nice hotel close to Waikiki beach and the shopping"
Pros: Nice hotel, good location, very friendly staff, close to shopping mall and Waikiki beach, bus station.
Cons: Small pool, valet parking only or self parking across the hotel not included in price and expensive.
My spouse & I had never been to Hawaii & we really enjoyed the trip! Everyone is so friendly & helpful. The hotel is right on the beach & have one really good restaurant connected to it. ( there are several but hubby has a gluten allergy so we're limited to where we can eat.) chucks steakhouse is in this hotel but it's overpriced & doesn't have any ambience. The only complaint we had was the bed was hard, very hard. We will go back! Just hope they get better beds.
The hotel was nice but it rained the entire time and had extreme winds when we were there (Dec 13-16). We ended up driving to the west side of the island to enjoy the sun and calm winds. The lobby and restaurants at the hotel filled up at night with all the locals created loud chaos and long waits for dinner.
