"A very pleasant and interesting hotel in a good lo"
The Manoa Valley Inn has quite a history. The present owners have done a good job of restoring and maintaining
the building and gardens. They have also added authentic furnishings which keep the historic background of the
mansion and gardens intact. Each room is carefully decorated and is unique. It is the real deal! As a guest you
feel like you have traveled back in history. The gardens are very lush and add to the beauty of the mansion. A special treat for guests is the hidden swimming pool surrounded by the flowering trees and bushes.
The delicious breakfast/brunch served on the veranda is another high point to the visit. The protected outdoor
surroundings add to the feeling of enjoying your own mansion on a leisurely morning. I'm talking about a full
on breakfast with something for everyone. The kitchen staff will also cook "to order" items including special pancakes! I wish I lived closer to the Manoa Valley Inn!
Overall, we had a pleasant hotel stay. The front desk was hospitable and very helpful. They had various objects for us the use at the desk that we couldn't bring to Hawaii such as a bottle opener and scissors. The complimentary pineapple iced tea and cucumber water was a nice offering. Room service came later in the day and caught us coming back to hotel, but the house keepers were very nice and polite. Although we had a not so pleasant view of a business complex (with balconies covered by wire fencing to keep pigeons away), we were able to see a partial ocean view on the rooftop with the pool (not heated). We avoided the $28 valet parking by parking along Ala Wai Canal and along adjacent streets west and east of our hotel. Luckily, the hotel was in the middle of the whole stretch of parking so distance was never an issue. Along Ala Wai canal, keep in mind street sweeping 8:30 am - 11:30 am on Monday and Friday. We got back on a Friday at around 1 pm with still plenty of open parking spots along the canal.
Definitely recommend staying here if you are on a budget and don't mind a room with a non-ocean view. The central location cannot be beat!
The Seaside Hotel Waikiki is located in the heat of waikiki surrounded by shopping dining entertainment and just three blocks …More
We had a great short stay, arrived in town early from a flight and the staff were lovely enough to put us in our room 3 hours early which enabled my daughter and I explore wonderful Waikiki. That itself was a bonus especially after a long flight. 2 min walk from the beach and good location of the beach, especially with young children.
Really enjoyed the Modern Honolulu. It is near everything but away from the crowds. The staff were very helpful and the room was comfortable and clean with a nice balcony. Even though we did not have an ocean view we could see the ocean from the balcony.
Stayed four nights and loved every minute of it! We were in a partial ocean view and still had a beautiful view of the ocean from our balcony. The room itself was spacious compared to most, very clean with comfortable beds. I would definitely stay there again. Everyone was very friendly and the staff at the activities desk was very helpful when booking our tour. Had an enjoyable breakfast on the terrace our first morning and it was so peaceful. Can't wait to visit again.
