We stayed in the Grand Waikikian tower in a 1 bedroom suite for a family of 4. It was spacious and very nicely appointed. We stayed for 6 nights at the end of March/beginning of April 2012, and the 1 BR was spacious enough that we didn't feel as if we were stepping on each other - we could spread out a bit. The kitchen was functional enough that we cooked nearly every meal in our suite. I highly recommend hitting one of the local farmer's markets for amazing produce. Our 1BR was "city view" which meant facing Ala Moana, a very busy road. In addition, they were doing road construction at night. However, the sliding door and windows installed in the unit was amazing and blocked out 100% of the noise. The Grand Waikikian rooms have a washer/dryer right in the unit, which was great.
The proximity to the lagoon and the beach is what really made it fantastic.
We have two 6 year old kiddos who are good swimmers, but inexperienced in oceans. The beach is excellent - very protected so we didn't have to worry about the kids getting swept out in a big wave. Beaches farther east on Waikiki had a LOT more wave action and I was glad we weren't trying to swim there. But the lagoon was the bigger hit with our kids. They liked that the water was warmer, and had a blast with a stand up paddle board we rented a couple times.
We liked it so much that we will be back again in a few years!
