"Really quirky hotel with lovely cheerful staff!!"
I would recommend the Equus hotel to anyone who likes a more quirky decor than your average hotel. It's very clean and nicely decorated. All the staff, from reception to housekeeping were very friendly, cheerful and helpful and accomodated every request we had. I would definitely stay here again. It's a short walk to the beach and also walking distance to the main shopping areas. There are some restaurants/bars very close by too :-)
I am in the hotel business and own a 100+ room hotel at a major lake and ski area in Northern California. The staff was excellent at The Modern Honolulu and extremely courteous. I told them that I hope my staff is such when we owners are not at our property. 5 Stars to The Modern Honolulu.
This hotel was everything we imagined a Hawaii hotel to be. The rooms were clean and very comfortable. We were right on the beach with the opportunity to walk the beach boardwalk along the coastline to other hotels/restaurants and views of Diamond Head. The pool was a salt water pool and was never so full that you had to wait for a chair except for later in the afternoon. I would recommend the snorkeling cruise that goes to a reef right in front of the hotel. It is a place were turtles are numerous along with tropical fish. You can sign up for the cruise right on the beach where you see the sign. There are fireworks every Friday night on the coast so get a good spot on the beach to see them down the coast. The food is expensive everywhere so make sure you use the coupons given to you to cut down on the cost of food. We stopped at a local grocery store when we were touring the island in a rental car for water and snacks to keep in the room. We also stopped at a Shrimp truck with a delicious shrimp menu along the way. If you want to see a luau, the King Luau was exceptional! One of our favorite memories. Aloha!
We just returned from 8 days in Waikiki. We stayed at the Luana Waikiki. It was great. Very friendly. Close to shops, restaurants and the beach. Can catch the City Bus or ride the Trolley most everywhere. The hotel staff was very good about getting us transportation when we weren't walking. Was able to walk to most places. Woould go back again.
