This is our time in Hawaii, the valet parking was nice, the front desk and the concierge service was good. But few things have disappointed us, was when the house cleaning came, there few times the towels, the coffee condiments and leis flowers were not provided. We have to ask the concierge to make that those things were provided to... More

Our family of 4 recently stayed at the Royal Hawaiian. This was our 7th trip to the Islands (we love it there) and I had always wanted to stay at the Pink Palace. Having stayed at the Halekulani previously I was a bit Jaded about the 5 star experience - I was expecting the same snobby, stuck up vibe that... More

This is an old hotel that had a musty smell. Rooms are small and need to be updated. Staff is generally unfriendly and discourteous for a 5 star hotel. Long wait to check in and no real room accommodations. Had daily credit as part of our package, but failed to apply it after numerous trips down stairs to registration. Only... More

We recently stayed at the Royal Hawaiian Hotel in Honolulu and had a room in the original part of the hotel. Nothing real fancy, view of the entrance to the hotel but very quiet despite the traffic coming and going. Room is not large, typical of older hotels but very well maintained. For a location next to the busiest street... More

Service was very good-- very friendly and accommodating. Ended up staying two extra nights during a very busy weekend. The bed and pillows were heavenly. Very clean. Food allergy friendly. Cannot speak any more highly of how friendly and kind the staff was!

Amazing views, Ocean side is the best side. Great location, fabulous services... First class all the way. Waking up to sun, surf, and breakfast in bed.... What a great vacation! And the staff is super about helping with arrangements for most anything.

This was our first time on Oahu, and traveling for our honeymoon, our travel agent wound up getting our reservation at the Royal Hawaiian. The staff was courteous and friendly, and the folks working the Concierge desk did a great job with setting us up for a couple of day trips as well as a luau. The accommodations were wonderful...

Great location, great property. Exceptional beach services, very friendly, great instructors. Great breakfast at the Surf Lani. Exceptional cocktails at the Mai Tai Bar! Susan and Brydan are both outstanding and make the best mai tai in all of Waikiki!

We stayed 4 nights using points and cash. As others have already said, it's a gorgeous hotel. Although it's located in one of the busiest section of Waikiki, you wouldn't know it from the way the hotel is configured. It is set back from the main drag. Although the room we had a standard bedroom, the high ceilings made the... More

This was our second time staying at the Royal Hawaiian and we enjoyed it both times. It really is a great location if you're going to stay on Waikiki. Great view of Diamond Head from our tower room. All the staff were friendly. Would stay here again. Don't miss drinks at the Mai Tai Bar, they're delicious!
