Perfect downtown location
The hotel was nicely furnished and the kitchenette/fridge was useful in our 3 night stay to stock breakfast and drinks, etc. We visited HPU on a prospective student tour and found the location perfect for walking since we did not rent a car. The bus system also supported our ability to travel around town easily and cheaply - to Diamond Head and Waikiki.
With any downtown cite, homeless people present, but even more so in this warm weather location. Most concentrated within blocks of the hotel so it is a shocking presentation when you first arrive. Being from an urban city myself, not unexpected, but definitely a reminder you are in the continental US even with the beautiful beaches and palm trees.
