I wanted to feel special on vacation and they delivered in Royal Hawaiian style. From the first contact out front to each and every day contact with the staff was what a special place to vacation this place is. Every one made sure that every guest was cared for equally.

I absolutely loved this resort. It was a great beachfront location! When we checked in we were greeted with beautiful Lei's and checkin was quick and easy! Our room was very nice even though it was old. The updates made it feel more modern and our housekeepers kept it nice an clean everyday! The service at the restaurant was great.... More

Excellent staff, very helpful and responsive to requests. Great location. The one complaint I had was that my room was not cleaned when requested. This was corrected after I brought the issue to the front desk.

You can imagine Sinatra Sitting by the Pool Sipping a Cocktail but the Royal Hawaiian has been maintained superably. Old Fashion Feel in a Modern Setting and on the shores of that magnificent Waikiki beach

I originally booked a room in the historic building but was upgraded to an 8th floor premier room in the Mailani Tower, for no extra cost. It was an very good room with a great ocean and beach view which included Diamond Head. The Mailani Tower is key access for tower guests only and features a very good free morning... More

The Royal Hawaiian is just an amazing experience. This was my second visit and this time I was fortunate enough to stay in the historic Pink Palace. Everything is just absolutely beautiful, one of those few places that is picture perfect. It's sureal, something that has to be experienced to fully capture the concept. I tell my friends it's like... More

What a fantastic property in Honolulu Waikiki Beach! We have been there 5 years in a row and the staff makes us feel like family. The property is an oasis in the middle of the bustle of the city. You walk a few blocks and then you are 80 years back and in the middle of the coconut grove. Look... More

Beautiful hotel, excellent service, lovely facilities, great location and lovely ambience. We stayed here for a week in Mailani tower, beautiful ocean view room, very spacious. Food offered for breakfast and canapés was very limited selection. A very nice feature of this hotel is that they do not charge an added resort fee.
