I originally reviewed this hotel at a 2 but now it is a 1. I am so happy that tripadvisor decided to remove my original review because I included an email from being denied the best rate guarantee. There are several loopholes in that guarantee. Also, I believe the hotel complained about my original review because the actual manager called... More

Great place to stay. Central to Waikiki. James Speight is the biggest asset to this hotel. Highly recommended. Loved every minute. Will be returning again soon. Highly recommended. Close to everything. Cheesecake Factory across the road is dangerous for the waistline.

Best place to stay if you want to be right on the beach ,wish I was there now sipping cocktails on the patio listening to the band and watching the sun go down ,if you have a healthy appetite then the buffet breakfast is a must loved feeding the birds when the waiters weren't looking ,

This was our second stay at this hotel, having visited in July 2013. Like our first visit the staff were extremely friendly and helpful and the rooms are well presented and very roomy. The only down side this time - which the hotel could do nothing about - is that there is construction going on on the old International Markets... More

The hotel is in a great position but with that comes noise - but that can't be helped for being in a city. The Beds are super comfy and the showers worked well which for me is the main things in a hotel. The pool area was good but I'm glad I didn't include breakfast as any food that I... More
