This was our first visit to Hawaii and we were on our honeymoon. We immediately fell in love with the charm and character of the Royal Hawaiian. The resort grounds were gorgeous, and our room was beautiful as well. There was easy beach access to the beautiful Waikiki beach. There was also easy access to the Mai tai bar and... More

We stayed at the Pink Palace for 4 nights last week, checking out on Saturday morning of April 19. Our booking package included breakfast so we received 4 sets of breakfast coupons when checking in. We can only use the coupons for only one same restaurant and the restaurant has only one same menu everyday! There were about 15 different... More

Definitely stay in the Royal Hawaiian Tower. The hotel is very old and the rooms in the main section aren't all that great. People want the ocean views mainly, so the tower has the best views, with balconies! The hotel needs a complete make over. Room service was so fast. Faster than going to their restaurant. Our trip was great... More

If the desire is to stay and enjoy the hustle and bustle of Waikiki this is a great place to stay. The access to the beach is fast. The main shopping street is close by. The grounds have a lot of tropical green. The hotel is a busy place with functions, many guests, still maintaing a rather quiet feel, once... More

This hotel is expensive, but it is beautiful. . .the atmosphere and ambiance gives you a feeling of royalty. It is a very old hotel, but well kept. . .it has a lot of "class". The local people often have dinner functions in the Royal Dining Room. The ocean view is gorgeous. It is also located in the heart of... More

So..my partner and I went to get married in Hawaii in February, and we decided to give the Royal Hawaiian a 2nd chance based upon the reviews. I was very pleased my 2nd time here.

Finding the entrance to The Royal Hawaiian was a little tricky since the driveway is not directly on the street. But once we found it, we were so impressed with the landscaping and old world beauty of the hotel. And I love pink ☺ We stayed in 3 hotels for this vacation, and this was my husband’s favorite. There was... More

I just wanted to thank our server Richard Chan. We decided to visit the Royal Hawaiian while staying at a property further down the beach. Lunch was wonderful and in fact we returned once more before the end of our stay. Richard was attentive and exemplified the art of service. While we didn't stay overnight at the resort the atmosphere... More
