Bed was very comfortable, had a great night sleep. In the past at other hotels I often had noise complaints with the neighbors, this was not a problem here. Big and spacious room, would recommend to others.

To me, this is the best hotel in the world. It's surreal staying here; feels like heaven on earth. Bringing the whole family for another trip this February. In the middle of the city yet the property has so much outside space. Also sits on the best part of Waikiki Beach. Great food and service for sure!

Honestly, we've gotten to the point that this is one of the only hotels we will stay at. Usually we book a condo whenever we travel anywhere, but the Royal is worth staying in a hotel. The service is terrific and the location can't be beat. We stay in the historic wing. This time we were in a grove wing...

Great location in the middle of Waikiki and near shops and restaurants. Wonderful service and a relaxed atmosphere. The rooms were quiet and the bed was super comfortable. The hotel in general felt historic and classic. You could almost imagine Frank Sinatra about to appear around the corner.

A wonderful old Hawaii hotel right on beach with amazing views. The property is a quiet location on busy Waikiki beach providing a very relaxing beach vacation. The complementary continental breakfast and wine/beer/appetizers were a great addition for tower guests.

Probably the best service and friendliest staff I've ever experienced. If you want to be welcome in paradise, this is it! The property is exquisite, beds comfortable, rooms roomy, and food is good as well. I hope to come back soon.

First time staying at the RH. The location is great on Waikiki. Self Parking is a little inconvenient--need to share with the Sheraton next door. Room 491 is a King bed and it is very small. No tub. Closet can barely hold a person. Since we requested double beds, we were able to switch to Room 494, which is much...

Beautiful old world accommodation in lovely garden setting. Complimentary breakfast and drinks and canapés very nice. Main hotel lobby and walkways very open and spacious however room size disappointing especially bathroom and small balcony felt very closed in. DId not feel accommodation was value for money. One disappointing fact was walking through the gardens every day and having to pass...
