The hotel was great!!! The staff their at the Renew were so friendly and willing to help out with anything. A great simple little breakfast in the morning with delicious fresh squeezed juice. The best part of the hotel is the location. You are right there by Waikiki literally 50ft from the beach. It's a great value, with so many...

We are repeat visitors, first coming about 6 years ago. This year, we were in Waikiki for over three weeks and split our visit between 3 hotels, just to have slightly different experiences without much effort. At Hotel Renew we always get an ocean view room and enjoy the pretty, but compact space. This year we saw the New Years...

I really enjoyed my stay at Hotel Renew. I usually stay at bigger hotels but I have to say that the hotel staff here were very friendly and that this hotel was nice and clean, they offered a log amenities like beach towels, beach equipment etc. Most of the bigger hotels make it so hard to get your car from...

This is our second stay at Hotel Renew and it was just as nice as the first! It is small but clean, well-kept and stylish. The location is great - just one block from Waikiki beach and all the activities around it. But the best part of Hotel Renew is the friendly staff! Everyone - front desk staff, housekeeping, valet...

The hotel is a small off shoot of the larger hotel next door. The staff is great and helpful and can give you a list of locals eateries instead of the big hotel and chain high end restaurants. It does not have a pool or a lanai or I would have given it a 5 instead of a 4. The...
