My husband, our son 15 and I stayed here January 15 for a week, we loved the location and the historical features and peacefulness offered at the hotel. Our room was a beachfront double bed room a little squishy but comfortable, they also offered free bottled water. The pool was lovely it could stay open a little later than 5pm... More

Lasr April I stayed at the Royal Hawaiian in Honolulu. My hotel room was robbed and I lost $545.00 cash. I wrote to the hotel manager as well as the hotels' head of security. I did not receive the courtesy of a reply from either of them. Please note that this is a Starwood Hotel. The guest suites were very... More

My wife and I just returned from another memorable stay at the Royal Hawaiian, I believe this was our 6th stay at the hotel. The hotel offers a peaceful oasis amid the bustle of Waikiki, with timeless elegance and beauty that must be seen to be appreciated. The service was excellent as usual, with a special thank you to John... More

A great place to stay by the beach in the heart of waikiki. Relax in the seafront Mai Tai bar where the excellent staff try very hard to please and the signature cocktails help wind you down. We were allowed early check in and better still a room upgrade to full sea view. A memorable stay. The Royal Hawain is... More

A real experience. Hawaii has everything you need to have a good holiday. Swimming , diving , dining ....just make sure you don't go there with Robert Allenby! I have stayed at this Hotel every year for the last 6 years and Cori and the staff are second to none. The meet n greet process only precludes what is a... More

I stayed at this hotel for 5 nights with my husband for our honey moon. Before we arrived, they wrote an email to us, asking if we had any particular requests or if we would be celebrating any special date. When we arrived they had a courtesy champagne bottle and muffins waiting for us in our room. We received the... More

It is hard to describe what a lovely stay we had at the Royal Hawaiian this January. Starting with the lei greeting and ending with a terrific Mai Tai overlooking the beach, we would return in a heartbeat. The grounds are meticulously maintained and the staff friendly and accommodating. We had an ocean front room on the sixth floor with... More

The Royal is beautiful and is a living landmark of Waikiki. It's worth just walking through its lobby and soaking in the history. Right after the attack on Pearl Harbor soldiers could stay there for only 0.25 per night. The hotel is beautiful but it is old and some of the rooms are not as nice as others. While I... More
