Our family decided to celebrated my daughter's 14th birthday with a weekend staycation with a few of her best friends in Waikiki at the Aqua Skyline at Island Colony. We were greeted by the most friendliest hotel staff upon check-in. The front desk representative, Brian, was very professional and immediately asked how he could offer any assistance with restaurants and...

We stayed here 5 nights and found the room to be satisfactory. It was clean and close to shopping, restaurants, and plenty of public beaches. The only negative was the cost of parking the car and ammenity fees. $25 per night for parking plus a charge of 18 dollars per night for amenities that we did not realize until our...

We are fortunate enough to visit every few years and stay here. The amenities have been updated and the security is great, but, BY FAR, what we love most about Island Colony is the location! It's just a couple of blocks from Waikiki Beach and right in the heart of Waikiki itself. The staff is always helpful and friendly.

Stayed two nights on business. Staff were friendly. Room was small. Only window was balcony door. Too noisy at night to leave it open but stuffy with it closed. Air conditioner was way too noisy to leave on. Bed was very comfortable with good pillows. Room was clean. Good access to all Waikiki has to offer.

Upon arrival, there was no one at the check-in desk and we had to wait a few minutes for someone to arrive. Going to your room, you need to swipe your room card for access to the elevators which I find odd - just make the swiping card part of the elevator itself. There are far too many elevators and...
