Beautiful property, an oasis away from busy Waikiki, although its in the center of it all. Have been coming to Oahu for years, never staying here but always coming back To see Susan at the Mai Tai bar. The bar staff are all excellent but Susan and Brydan are stand outs. The bar and restaurant are both great. Rooms are... More

We have been to Hawaii about twelve or so different times, mainly to Oahu but also to Maui, Kauai and the Big Island. We almost always had our children with us and did not feel that we could afford the Royal Hawaiian until now. We were splurging a little to celebrate our 45th Wedding anniversary with a four night getaway.... More

Beautiful Classic (totally refurbished) Hotel in the heart of Waikiki. Wonderful hotel, restaurant, bar, shops and grounds. Centrally located and easy walking distance to beach, main shopping and restaurant district. Great service - except for slow check-in/out.

The Royal is like a museum. You can feel the past and maybe by todays standards it's not really the luxury you would expect but the location, the service ( absolute great dorman crew ) is one of a kind. It's crazy busy, like everything on Waikiki but infront of the hotel is a great surf spot when there is... More
