I actually had a reservation booked at an Aqua hotel for the Memorial Weekend but 2 weeks later the Ambassadors rates beat the prices! This time i took a double room as compared to the triple last time. The room is great with the kitchen and large bathroom. Amenities are ok tho I didnt realize many hotels charge for them... More

We stayed for six days at a very reasonable price. The beach was just a five minute walk away. The 1bd suite was very comfortable for four of us. We each had our own bed. The view was great. We had a partial ocean view and city view. I recommend this hotel for parties of four. The beds weren't super... More

A good place to stay. Accessible to tourist spots. Close to waikiki beach and has a bus stop at the front that goes directly to Ala Moana Center. We got a room complete with kitchen and fridge. Would highly recommend this hotel for families or 2-3 pax.

Very affordable for Waikiki. Nice area. Bus stop nearby. Trolley stop nearby. Restaurants short walk. Could hear morning trash dumpster trucks from 11th floor in early AM. Nice views from outside corridors.

Nothing fancy, ver low-key. If you're coming to Hawaii to see the sights, be at the beach all day and not stay in your hotel other than to sleep then this is the place. It's conveniently located. You can walk to the strip, beach, stores and there's a busline close by. This place is reasonable. I would recommend here if... More

Aloha Cheri, Thank you for your review. I like to thing of our property as a "hidden gem of Aloha" versus "low-key," but both are an accurate description. With so much history, prime location and awesome amenities how could you go wrong? Come again and take advantage of our Kama'aina specials when booking online and providing a Local ID upon... More

The hotel staff very friendly and helpful, anything we needed they were very attentive! It's just the room that was disappointing, the size was great and it was clean, I actually got and paid for an upgraded room partial ocean view, with a one bedroom, kitchenette. Maybe just a nicer color, the sitting area just bland, the room was nice... More

The hotel is a great place to stay if you're trying to save a couple dollars. You are close to everything you need while in Waikiki, and there are even kitchenettes if you would rather cook something than go out and spend another $100. First of all, yes it's a little dated. However, the rooms ARE clean, and they are... More

A frequent visitor to Honolulu, we have stayed at a lot of hotels. This was our first ever visit to The Ambassador Hotel. We always thought because of it's age, it would be subpar, but we were wrong. Here's my breakdown: Reservation: Excellent on-line reservation system. Most websites pictures makes the hotel rooms look better then they really are. This... More

Sheet and blankets were snagged and looked old. We asked if there were any better rooms and were moved to a different room did smell a bit better but otherwise was... More
