Thie RH was a nice hotel. The perks included private beach (with complimentary lounge chairs and umbrellas), lei arrival, and banana bread in the room. The other reviews are true, the grounds are beautiful and very well kept. I was quite disappointed in the room though. We stayed in the historic building which had beeen most recently renovated. The rooms... More

My husband and I spent 3 wonderful nights at the Royal Hawaiian at the end of May 2010. We stayed in three different hotels throughout our Hawaiian adventure and the RH was by far the most luxurious. Even from the perch atop Diamond Head, the RH stood out among the high rise crowds and was just the epitome of Hawaiian... More

During my vacation in Honolulu - I had stayed at 3 properties of the Starwood Hotels - Sheraton Princess (1 night) & Moana Surfrider (2nights) & Royal Hawaiian ( 2 nights). Of course - out of the three - my recommendation would be RH. From the moment on my check in (before 11:00 am) the front staff - made me... More

We loved our stay at the Royal Hawaiian. After staying next door at the Outrigger two years ago we could not wait to leave Waikiki. Staying at the Royal was completely different - the staff was exceptional - very friendly and you could tell they were all happy to work at the Royal. We stayed in two garden view rooms... More

My wife and I went to Oahu for vacation. We stayed in the Royal Hawaiian for 7 nights in an ocean view room in the original hotel. It was a beautiful room and the staff was the very best. We had a couple things come up on our trip and the staff took care of it right then not later.... More

We stayed one night after arriving back from a couple of days in beautiful Kauai and before leaving Hawaii - I had booked through expedia and got (what seemed) a good deal for a tower ocean view room (it was still $AU400+). We were greeted with leis on arrival and directed to check-in where one of the two check-in people... More

My wife and I stayed at The Royal Hawaiian for 6 nights in June 2010, we were originally booked into Tower Oceanfront rooms, big mistake, the Tower building is in huge need of renovation and I am sure this will happen soon, but until this happens I highly recommend that you only book rooms in the Historic Wing, ie Garden...

My wife and I stayed here on our last night in Oahu. This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. The accomodations are first class all the way. The staff was incredibly friendly, and the housekeeping staff went out of their way to say "Aloha" everytime they saw you. I wish we had stayed here our entire trip in Oahu, but our budget... More
