I've visited the Royal Hawaiian periodically since the 1950's and this visit made me feel that the Hotel is beginning to show it's age. The Mai Tai bar beach side is still a wonderful location but the umbrellas are badly worn despite attempts at patching (see photo). A walk through the lobby shows furniture pieces extensively worn. Time for a...

We have to stay here sometime. We walked through looking for the entertainment and it looked very impressive. Right on the beach and close to the shops and restaurants in Waikiki. The pink color really is pretty!

In a maze of Waikiki mega hotels and high rises the Royal Hawaiian is managing to keep a bit of aloha spirit still going. We enjoyed it for the tradition, history, quaint and unique architecture and beautiful grounds, friendly atmosphere. However, all this gets a little overshadowed sometimes by a feeling of urgency, edginess and disquiet that is in the...

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this iconic location. Luxury and history at every turn and service beyond reproach. Our room was comfortable although I wish I had a better view. In a hotel of this standard, I felt the in room tea and coffee facilities should be better. But this is a small concern when considering this gem.

There is no better place to stop and have a Mai Tai! You don't have to be a guest to stop and enjoy this beachfront bar. The Royal Hawaiian is one of the oldest Hotels in Hawaii and it is full of history!

The view in hotel is unbeatable. The waffle bar in the breakfast buffet is my favorite, and the miso soup. The photo service is very good,too. We all loved the photo taken by photo service at the hotel.

Property is beautifully landscaped and kept clean. Second oldest hotel in Waikiki, but unfortunately the bathrooms in the original building are quite small.
