Aloha butterflygirl2014! Thank you for your review. We are glad to hear you enjoyed our ideal location and nice staff. We appreciate your feedback regarding facility upgrades and believe you will be pleased to hear we have started full room and corridor renovations, which are expected to be completed by the end of 2019. We apologize you were not informed prior to your arrival. We apologize regarding the hot water issue and room cleanliness. Your feedback has been relayed to our management team for improvement. Unfortunately, parking rates in Waikiki is an average of $30.00, with some hotels charging even more. On a brighter note, we hope you returned home with fond memories. Should future travel bring you back to the islands, it would be a pleasure to welcome you again soon! Mahalo.

In general, Happy Hour is to get people in when business is usually slow. Before 6pm and after 9pm. Establishments may choose anytime to lower the prices for a few of their menu items and cocktails/pots of beer. My review was of a hotel not a drinking establishment

There is no on street parking. Parking is tight, even if you pay the $30/night charge. No parking garage next door, only other hotels.
