The other issue, you may...

Just add the $18/day resort fee to the room rate and try to forget about it. The listed "benefits" were ridiculous, for example, the daily paper is the single copy for all to share in the lobby. The free DVD service sounded good, but no one could explain to me how to make the playstation (whatever it was) in the...

Nice reasonably priced hotel just a short walk from the beach. Lots of restaurants close - MacDonald's just around the corner, Outback and Red Lobster across the street. Also Hilton right across the street. Spacious rooms, nice and clean. Resort fee included wifi. Very friendly and helpful front desk staff. We did not have a car so don't know about...

This boutique hotel has an excellent location near to restaurants, ABC stores, bus stops & beach. We stayed at this hotel for a week. Our room is being cleaned every day, comfortable pillows and bed, we have a small balcony overlooking the city. Going to Ala Moana centre took us at least 10-15minutes walk from the hotel or take bus...

Not among the big brand names but offering good value for money. Rooms are clean, beds and showers are good and the staff are all so friendly. About a 6 minute walk from Waikiki beach, free beach towels included. Oh, and a dvd player and PS3 in your room, with free dvd rentals should you get bored!

This is a boutique hotel, but very old and dated. They did a little renovation but it's obvious that it's old. The floor in our room actually slanted. They made us sign a form saying if we smoked in our room they would charge clean up, but it was overwhelmingly obvious that our non-smoking room had been smoked in. I...

Aloha Annette D: Mahalo for taking the time to share your experience at the Aqua Palms Waikiki. Your comments definitely highlight the property and its location with restaurants and shops close by. The hospitality fee has become a norm among hotels in Hawaii. It covers many amenities beside the ones you mentioned. i.e., shuttle service around Waikiki, DVD and PS3...

When traveling to Oahu, this is my go to hotel. The location is perfect, right at the gateway of Waikiki. First off, the parking spaces are a bit tight, so anything larger than a full size car would have a difficult time. I am thinking that $25 a day for parking is normal in Waikiki. The staff is polite and...

Excellent in comfort for value, close to waikiki beach, great side restaurant, informative, clean and swift service. Had a very pleasant one day stay there. Could not ask for more regarding the value. Be aware they charge extra for parting and WiFi.
