Classic hotel on famous Waikiki Beach. Very classy service and amenities. Although kids are certainly welcomed, there's not much for them to do. We had to use the shared pool at the Sheraton, which was nice and offered a water slide for the kids. We ended up visiting the local beaches and nearby sites. Great vacation!

I stayed here for the week over Christmas. It was my first visit to Hawaii and I'm delighted to have spent my time in this hotel. It is absolutely beautiful with a wealth of history. It's old world charm combined with modern amenities. It has a special energy that is only found every so often. I couldn't fault the place...

Great week away from the cold and rain. Staff was amazingly accommodating and worked to be sure that any of our needs were met. Combined with the historical beauty of the Royal Hawaiian, it was just what we needed for our winter thaw.

We stayed in the Mailani Tower and enjoyed the brilliant views and high standard room amenities. All the staff we engaged with were both friendly and attentive across all of the hotel bars and restaurants.

As one of the few properties located right on Waikiki Beach, The Royal Hawaiian is a great stop. We spent one night here before connecting to another Island and enjoyed the chance to briefly experience Waikiki. The room was on the small side, but just fine for a one night stay for our family of 4. The staff were very...

The Royal Hawaiian is a first class resort. Although it is pricey, it is worth it. It was one of the best vacations, my husband and I have experienced. Even though it is located in Waikiki, there is privacy there. It was a great location. We'd definitely go back.

I'm a frequent traveler, averaging about 200K miles per year, so I get to many hotels across the globe frequently. When I had a 1 day layover in Hawaii I decided to pick the Royal Hawaiian over the Moana Surfrider. I booked the hotel for 1 night on SPG Gold membership points. Plus: - upon arrival (early) the room was...

Pros: tower Ocean view rooms are the reason you stay here. Don't settle for less. The view on your balcony defines your whole trip! The best views are from floors 3, 6, 9, 12, 16 and 17. Worth whatever extra money it costs because the tower ocean rooms include a delicious continental breakfast and a substantial layout of appetizers at...

We had a very nice stay at this historic hotel. Our room overlooking Waikiki Beach was outstanding but the room was small and was in need of upgrading. The common areas of the property were striking and the staff and service outstanding. The included breakfast was a suprise. They offer a buffet and order menu and I must say they...
