Its always hard to tell what the hotel actually looks like from photos. The hotel was great. We traveled with our 5 year old grand daughter. The kids pool was awesome, with a big water slide, little water slide, water fall, deep end, shallow end, kiddy pool and 2 spas. It had lots of seating and was sunny with shade cabanas to rent. On top of that it was steps from the ocean where you had a whole other experience that was just as amazing. Everyday their were activities for kids and adults, Hula lessons, flower lei making, treasure hunts just to name a few. You are in the heart of Waikiki so restaurants and shopping were a plenty. So many activities to choose from so little time. We had a hard time leaving the hotel to see other parts of the island. The staff was amazing no matter what we were asking for. We are in Hawaii at least once a year and have stayed many places and this is now one of our favorites. Some times we travel with the grand kid, sometimes we travel with the grand kid and adult kids and sometimes just the 2 of us. This hotel works for all circumstances. The pictures on line don't do the hotel justice. The only thing I would say is dont stay on the street side of the hotel. There is a loading and unloading area and the trucks use a beeping when they back up and you can hear that early in the morning.
love the hotel, staff was very helpful. valet and bell hop is only friendly if they feel you have money. we were greeted with a lei and everyone was nice and no complaints about them for us, but our daughter who lives at the north shore has a jalopy car was basically ignored. we go to this hotel every year, and get 2 rooms. you can't judge people by the car they drive, especially in hawaii
We returned to the Royal Hawaiian again for our annual visit, it remains our favorite hotel in Honolulu (the Trump is a close second but doesn't have the enviable location). As usual, upon arrival to the driveway of the hotel, we suddenly arrive to an oasis, tucked away from the busy shopping area nearby. Whilst the hotel was quite busy and check-in took longer than usual, the staff were friendly and courteous as always. Our corner room had ocean views from one side and a great view along the coast to diamond head from another, as expected, it was well kept and clean, with good amenities, although the bathroom was not as large as our previous rooms here.
