The hotel is very nice and in an excellent location. The staff are knowledgeable and the conscierge and activities staff are exceptional as well. What is annoying however is the tack on of $25/day resort fees.
The rooms are a bit dated but they are clean/spacious and we found the staff to be very friendly, welcoming and accommodating. We had a great view out our room on the ninth floor facing the canal and the golf course. For the money the location is great, its only a couple of blocks from the main drag and Waikiki and the are lots of good restaurants close by. I can't comment much on the amenities as we were only there for a few days on our way to another part of the island. We did experience some street noise but Honolulu is a big city and I think that is to be expected when you stay in the city, also it was nothing that detracted from our stay.
If your looking for a luxury spot, this isn't the place for you. But if you need the basics, perfect place. At the center of Waikiki, almost everything is in walking distance. Parking sucks but there is a little lot on the same street for $20 a day. Your on vacation so you shouldn't be in the room that much anyway lol. Staff was excellent!!
I booked this hotel for 6 days while in town for work. The parking is 25 a day (valet at the back of the hotel) in addition to the 10 resort fee/standard price. Older hotel, in a loud area, and generally less modern than what most are used to. At first take it seemed a little lame but honestly I was comfortable the whole time, the staff was great and overall the experience was good. The people next door were quiet but I could easily hear them anyway, especially in the morning. Walls are not very sound proof at all. WIFI was spotty at best so don't count on that. For a work stay it was adequate but if you need WIFI I wouldn't recommend it. My room came with a coffee, tea, the usual bathroom supplies & thankfully a toothbrush/paste kit as well since I left mine at home. My room had a nice lanai that faced the ocean/Waikiki. For the price it was a fair deal. If you plan on staying in your room a lot I might look into a more expensive option - but overall if you plan on doing stuff during your trip and just using the room as a place to crash it's not a bad choice.
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.
