We are 2 friends who stayed from Tuesday to Sunday. We were attending a friend's wedding at the Kahala. We spent some time poolside, but more time at the beach. Hotel is at marina, not directly on Waikiki beach, but short walk to the beach. The main beach area is about 15 min walk. Starbucks is at nearby Hilton village and good acai bowls and juice place there. Also walked a couple blocks to cafe down the street Hiker's cafe for healthy lunch/dinner options at reasonable price. It was nice to also have a trendy lounge and club downstairs so we didn't have to go far to have a drink. I recommend running (or walking) at park down the street across from Ala Moana mall. For an hour, did a couple laps.
Fitness center is decent size but quite busy. There is water and green apples. Towels of course. Iced face towels.
Main pool is kind of small and there were surprisingly a lot of kids. One day all the chairs were already taken by 11 am. The adult pool is really a shallow wading pool/fountain but is quieter. If you sit poolside, they bring your free snacks- lychee sorbet, pineapple slices. There is also self serve ice water with fruit in it. Good frozen drinks. Didn't try the food but it looked good.
Nice shower and bathroom. I liked the bath products- made in Pasadena, CA.
My room did not have a balcony, but seemed like half of them do. Ocean and building views.
Staff is really friendly and helpful. We were allowed to check out at 1 pm on our last day.
Hotel is conveniently located for many activities on the island, including the beach, Pearl Harbor and Honolulu tours, shopping, dining, etc. and the staff was very accommodating and helpful. We did have a problem with the concierge which told us the bus pick up location for the Pearl Harbor tour had changed due to a parade (pick up time was 6 am so it seemed a bit questionable). In fact the location had not changed and we missed the bus to Pearl Harbor at 6 am. Thankfully, we were able to get on the 8:30 am tour but it significantly impacted our planned activities for our short stay.
It was okay. the line to check in was super long.
The room is so small .
I slept on the couch I did not know that there are no rooms with 2 twin beds like all the other hotels.
The food was great on Friday noght.
The staff is excellent. Thank you
Inexpensive option for Wakiki with parking for only $25/night. But I think I was the only English speaking guest. Everyone else was from Japan. The hotel staff all remembered my name during a one night stay because it was the only non-japanese one. Pods of 10-15 Japanese tourists jammed the lobby 24/7
My husband and I recently spent 11 enjoyable nights at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel. From the very beginning Travis, at the front desk made us feel very welcome. He gave us information regarding restaurants, sights, directions, and tourist attractions. The other staff members were just as friendly and accommodating as Travis. This was our second extended stay at the Queen Kapiolani. After visiting other hotels on Waikiki we wouldn't want to book any place else. We had a great room with a view of Diamond Head and the beach. Very comfortable bed, excellent location, nice pool area (though we didn't use it very much), and beautiful "old world charm" in a modern hotel. We're looking forward to our next trip to Honolulu and the Queen Kapiolani.
a chair was something that was not in the room this would have been nice to have one, the bar restaurant below Lu Lu's was very nice and enjoyed a beautiful meal in there it is right at the end of the shopping area and plenty of shops,
i could not fault the hotel staff they were very nice and nothing was a problem to them we had a blown globe in the bathroom on telling the front desk this was fixed in 5 minutes a maintenance person changed the globe
Waikiki established its reputation as a getaway when the Moana Surfrider opened its doors in 1901. Today, more than 30,000 hotel rooms are packed in the skyscrapers along the golden sands of Waikiki Beach. At the end of Waikiki, Diamond Head towers as an enduring landmark. West of Waikiki, Pearl Harbor offers a somber testament to history and the victims of World War II.
