There was construction next door but it really didn't bother us too much. We were on the 12th floor. Thr breakfast at Jimmy Buffets was good. The gift shop there... More

I feel these rooms should be discounted , if as we... More

Had an awesome time in the centre of Waikiki, got upgraded to a high level, partial ocean view, friendly staff, great hotel. A fantastic guy on Concierge, James, he had an awesome personality and really helped us out with day trips, or silly questions, hints and tips, so definitely look out for him!

Because of my job I was in the Holiday Inn for over 3 months. And the hotel staff was great, and I have to give high praise to my house keeper, Eva Burd. I could tell when she service my room, and when someone else did it. Eva would take the time to turn down my bed. And make everything... More

We'd been on a cruise around the Hawaiian islands and had to one last night in Waikiki before flying to Japan. We only booked one day in advance but still got a fantastic room and rate. We got off the cruise very early (9am) and tried to see if they could check us in early and they were very obliging... More

A perfect location in waikiki, it is in the heart of everything. Shopping, restaurants, shows, bars, beaches, surfing and the gorgeous sunset every night. The swimming pool is not that large, but who need to stay at the pool, if you can get to the ocean by foot. There is an entertainment every night at this hotel. Live bands or... More

We stayed at this hotel when we eloped last year and the absolute best part of this hotel was the concierge, James Speight!
