The hotel looks like it is gradually renovating. The bathroom counters are new, bed is comfy (not the pillows, hard and flat) and the light fixtures are modern. However the furniture (desk, closet, night stand, dresser) is dated and a worn. The room, hallway and lobby were clean. The lobby and hallways look like they have been updated. I didn't...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 7 February 2017

Great value! I had a conference at the Hilton Hawaiian Village across the street, and the Aqua Palms was a convenient budget option. We stayed in a city view room with a king sized bed. All the rooms have a lanai, fridge, and microwave. The daily $18 resort fee includes wifi, towels and a Waikiki shuttle (compared to the $35...

Our travel agent recommended the Aqua Palms Wikiki. After staying there one night, I can’t understand why they made the recommendation but that’s a topic for a different forum. The two good things I could say about this hotel was that the staff was nice and the daily rate was lower than most Wikiki hotels. That said, the facility wasn’t...

Overall an average place to stay. The carpets and floors were filthy. If you walked across the carpet your feet were Dirty! They were pretty good at housekeeping only late once in our 10 day stay and forgot to leave towels one time too. Very generous with soap, shampoo, etc. Pool is only 4 feet deep so not real swimming...

We stayed on the 10th floor and had a peek a boo ocean view! Below us were all the Palm Trees from the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The walk to the beach was perfect, as we meandered through the villiage. The hotel is old, however, the elevators run perfectly, the laundry facilities are great, wifi is fast and reliable, rooms are...

We were looking for a place to stay for one night before our friends flew home and we went to a rental on the other side of Oahu. For what it is, the Aqua Palms is a good place to stay. The price was reasonable, considering the area. However, we paid for parking and an odd $18 charge to each...

This was a great hotel to stay for easy access to all of waikiki. It is directly across the street from Hilton village. The hotel staff was friendly.
