My trip to Hawaii was solo and last minute. The Equus had room for me and was in a perfect location. I would almost use the word quaint, but it doesn’t do the hotel justice. It is a small lovely welcoming hotel in the midst of giant buildings. I didn’t have to wait in a long line <cough Hilton cough> to check in, I paid for parking and it was always available for me, and my room was clean and smelled nice. I don’t have a single complaint and will try to stay again in the future. My son lives a mile north of the Equus so I am certain I will return.
On the day we arrived unfortunately our plans changed drastically and we had to leave - The staff and manager of the Equus worked with us to come to a really great resolution. We appreciated their kindness and dedication to customer service!
The hotel was awesome!!! The rooms were comfortable and had a real Hawaiian feel. The staff was spectacular. I would highly recommend. The location was close to restaurants and the beach. There was on sight parking available as well.
Excellent location. Well-appointed rooms. Superlative and friendly staff. A fantastic bar at the entryway with a great breeze. What more could one ask for? Definitely will be staying here next time I am in Waikiki. Special thanks to Rene, Lincoln, Kolette, Anita and Yulia for a wonderful stay! James
Trip was great! kollett was super helpful when we checked in and took the time to chat with us about the island and gave some amazing suggestions on where to visit! We also got to go to a polo game curtesy of the hotel which was really cool.
I am an Air Force officer and I came in with a huge logistical issue with my booking that I spent hours trying to figure out on my own. Rene made one phone call and got the whole situation resolved for me, saving me so much time, money, and stress! Her and Dwayne were so kind and patient with me the entire time, even as the waiting room got busy. I am so grateful for their help and the amazing service they provide!!
We had such a great time at the Hotel. Puka, Renee, Jackie and Dwayne were of great help getting us situated in our rooms. This is my first trip to Hawaii and we were given a special Aloha by the locals at the hotel which made The rest of our trip amazing and gorgeous. We would definitely advise friends and family to go to this hotel.
I had a great time at Paniolo! My bartender Dana was amazing! Such a positive attitude and smiling face always. The drinks she made were very tasty and she had good recommendations for beer. Would definitely come back because of Dana!
Wow! Dana was a great bartender for my first time visiting Paniolo! I most certainly will be back when Dana is working! Dana had such a positive attitude and always welcomed you with a smile. A perfect bartender!
Dana was very genuine and nice. She helped us with everything we wanted and more. When I am in Hawaii next, I will come back just to get her great service. She was very bubbly and brought a smile to my face!
