WOW WONDERFUL! The views were beautiful, the room fabulous! We had an amazing stay... the expedia expert "Roberto"...

I almost always stay at Marriotts to accumulate rewards points. I was going to stay at the Courtyard Waikiki for $125 a night until I decided to see if there was a cheaper hotel that wasn't a flop house. I saw Aqua's reviews on Tripadvisor and obtained a $80 AAA rate so staying here for 4 nites was $200 cheaper...

We got a standard room with king-sized bed on the eighth floor, and it was more than big enough for the two of us. The hotel is located in a fairly busy part of the city, but we couldn't hear anything from the street level at all with the windows closed. The walls had excellent sound insulation; other than the...

The hotel is very modern and clean. The room was small but with all needed and more. It had a nice new mini-fridge, a microwave, safe, a flat screen tv, and a double glass window to overlook the city.. the rooms next to ours had a balcony. but either one works. The decoration was great, late 80's tropical pink and...

I was only in Honolulu for a couple of days for a specific purpose so I did not want to spend the $200 to $300 a day for a higher tier beach front Waikiki hotel. The tripadvisor reviews were generally positive and at $100 a day (once you add parking fees) it seemed reasonable. First: It is in a very...

Location is great, away from the busy st. of Waikiki but just a walking distance to Ala Moana center and shopping center in Waikiki. Had a great stay. Staffs are friendly and helpful. Stayed in room 217 and our room attendant Helen did a great job. Will go back to this hotel again.

This a a really wonderful hotel if you are looking for a wonderful location in Waikiki, without the premium price. The beach is a short, invigorating walk and the shops of Kalakaua are so close.
