We booked two rooms a month ago. When we checked in the clerk said, so you are leaving on Friday. No, we are booked through Sunday. He couldn't find it. We were very stressed thinking we did not have a room for the weekend. Then my husband remembered that the Royal Hawaiin did our reservation in two parts, Sunday- Friday... More

We've stayed at the Royal Hawaiian in the 90s, 00s, and now this year, and I have to say that it's lost its charm. Part of it is the hotel itself, and part of it are just changes in the neighborhood that make it a less pleasant place to be overall. The good part is that the Royal Hawaiian is... More

I stayed only 1 night at the Royal Hawaiian and I was offered an upgrade in a seaview room. Everything was perfect from the check-in to the check-out. Loved the location (right on the beach), the bed was very comfortable, it was just perfect. My room was #5006 and I found a wedding ring in the safe (most probably from... More

Our travel agent, when we said we wanted to go to Hawaii, suggested a few nights in Oahu and then the remainder in Maui to experience a couple different sides of this great state. We are glad she recommended this wonderful hotel. From the warm greeting (complete with lei) upon our arrival to the complimentary banana bread in our room,... More

Only stayed one night as a stop over. The grounds are lovely and a delight to walk through. Welcome drink at check in was delicious. We had a treat of banana bread when we arrived in our room. A nice touch. Enjoyed the historic nature of the property. Kept spotlessly clean. Right on the beach, which we made good use... More

We recently spent 14 nights at the Royal Hawaiian with our two young children (3 and 7months) for my wife's 30th birthday. It was an unbelievable stay and we were certainly sad to leave once the two weeks were up. Our 3 year old daughter was so excited to be staying at "the pink hotel" and to be honest, so... More

Great tiki bar, small rooms, nice vanities, very friendly staff and great location. drawback; they make u rent beach chairs at 40/day on top of resort fee! so for those people who are tight u just have to lay in the beach sand like slaves in the Mohave dessert! :)
