We just wrapped up a one-week stay at the Royal Hawaiian and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. We chose it on short notice after originally reserving (6 months ago) at the Hilton Hawaiian Village mega-complex. This property sits in a cluster with other Starwood-branded properties including the Sheraton and the Westin. After exploring other high-end Waikiki hotels, including the lovely Halekulani,... More

The hotel itself is quite a period marvel. We felt like we were on a film set. Very elegant. Our room was in the ocean view tower. We really liked the room. The Azure restaurant in the hotel was first rate with fresh seafood. We also loved the Mai Tai bar overlooking the ocean. But, I can't imagine this place... More

I stayed for 2 nights with my mum and 4 year old. The grounds are beautiful and the original building is fantastic, we stayed in a ocean view twin room which was small but I did expect this. The arrival treats of banana bread and Logan fruit was a nice touch and all the staff are friendly. This is where... More

What a treat to stay at this iconic location. And they deliver the most delicious banana nut bread muffins to your room- with the recipe! Although I have been to Honolulu several times this was my first time to stay at the Royal Hawaiian hotel for a business meeting. I had a lovely garden suite on the first level of... More

Best place in the whole world. They are there to take care of all your needs. Staff remembers your name, makes sure you have everything you need. Even received a Christmas Gift - handpainted ornament of the hotel - very special. Would love to go back....smoking rooms available, though I only smoke on balcony. The malee organic bathroom vanity line,... More

This is our second stay at The Royal Hawaiian and we were very disappointed. While the location is fantastic, the hotel has really taken a dive. The greeting was lackluster, and the room was horrible. There is not one drawer in the room and the closet holds about a dozen hangers. Since we will be here for ten days it... More

Wonderful amenities, beautiful carved wooden doors, clean and comfortable. We got banana bread and chocolates each night at... More

The Royal Hawaiian, the name says it all. This, for us, was a special splurge night in Hawaii, and not a place that we'll be spending multiple nights in any time soon. This is not because of poor quality, but because of high quality which leads to high cost. The check in makes you feel welcome, pampered even if you're... More
