My first trip to Hawaii with my wife who had been there many years ago, and she thought that I would like this place. Before I tell you about my overall experience let me tell you about this hotel. This hotel is very well located to all amenities. We were on the 22nd floor (apartment style hotel) in a one...

It was an easy stay and quite comfortable beds. Could've had a fridge that worked and had marks all over the bed. Also found some property that wasn't ours which obviously wasn't cleaned out from the last people. Nice staff.

The hotel sits 2 blocks from the beach, and is central to everything we were looking for.

Nice quiet place, we had room 2901 and loved our room. there is a pool and Jacuzzi on the...

Only good thing about this hotel is its location. Close to the water. With single glased wondows I had a chance to experience Honolulu downtown noise from 6am until 11pm. Also there is a 24/7 noise from the cooling towers and aircons from buildings next door. Furniture is antique . Hotel maintenance is not great I guess it is in...

We stayed here as we really wanted a place that offered self catering facilities. When we arrived the staff were amazing - our flight landed at 630am and we dropped our bags off and had access to the rooftop pool and amenities room which was great. Our room was spacious and the bed was comfortable. We were only a block...

We booked this for location despite some bad reviews. We needed to be close to my inlaws who were at Moana Surfrider after a cruise. Our room was spacious for two. Full size bed (if it was Queen sized I would be surprised). Bed was NOT comfortable. As a matter of fact there was a wooden platform that the mattress...
