We booked a 2 bedroom room in the lagoon tower for 7 nights for 3 adults and 2 young children and i must say we were not disappointed. We stayed a few years ago in another tower and this time decided to try an apartment. What a great place. The apartment was huge, two bedrooms, two bathrooms a large living... More

This review is a few months late, but I think it should still apply. We had an awesome time, but we know what we like and if you're into sitting by the pool all week, skip this review. As far as I'm concerned, the Grand Waikikian was over the top nice, but we stayed only 4 nights and did Waikiki... More

A mix-up with another hotel proved to be to our advantage. We phoned the Hilton Desk, explained the situation and were so pleased with their courtesy and timeliness. We asked for Condo style and were booked into this lovely property. Cleanliness and modern. We did not have much of a view as our balcony faced the street. Elevators proved a... More

To be quite honest we are happy to see there was a mix up at another hotel because that enabled you to come stay at our resort and as you say to your advantage! We take pride in believing as you say that it is the best Hilton property in Honolulu (sorry, please allow to be as bold as to... More

We just returned from our first trip to Hawaii, and are already planning a return. We used our HGVC points for the week and it was a great experience. Everything about the facility was first rate. The kitchen was well equipped and the washer / dryer was great for cleaning out bathing suits. The location is close enough to walk... More

Aloha, first of all we are ecstatic to read that your first trip (and obviously not the last!) to Hawaii was a “great experience” and that Hilton Grand Vacations was a part of that. Your comments are greatly appreciated and they convey in an efficient nutshell everything that our owners and guests love about our property. And yes the people... More

HGVC Grand Waikikian was grand, but cramp in second bedroom. The renovated Lagoon Tower is roomier and just as grand. Ocean view two bedroom suite provided breathtaking ocean view with morning coffee on balcony. Room was clean and full kitchen with washer and dryer were a plus for family. Hilton Hawaiian Village is a cluster of hotel towers on well... More

Aloha and thank you for your nice comments regarding your recent stay with us. We understand why you might choose the Lagoon tower over the Grand Waikikian, especially because it is a little closer to the ocean, but both do have their strong points. As you mention the ocean views from the Grand Waikikian can be breathtaking (great word, thanks... More

We used our Hilton Grand Vacations time-share for our 20 year anniversary trip (June of 2013). It was fabulous! This hotel is part of the large complex of hotels owned by Hilton in the Hawaiian Village. While we had a city view instead of an ocean view, it was still very nice. The one-bedroom plus suite was spacious and accommodating.... More

First of all congratulations on your 20th wedding anniversary! That’s quite a milestone and we are so happy to see you were able to enjoy it in Hawaii and also at our resort! We’re glad to hear you enjoyed the city view as well. Most guests of course like to have the ocean view, but the Honolulu/Waikiki skylines can be... More

Very clean rooms and nice spaces. Very high density area, which was a culture shock for me, but that is Honolulu. Don't come here to get off the beaten track, come here for a good hotel in a packed area. Beach was good, but they charge you $30 for an umbrella and chair. Food was great. The tower is a... More

Just returned from a six-day stay at this timeshare. We were really lucky and got two beautiful rooms we decided to switch halfway through our stay. The accommodations were quite nice and the kitchen was very accommodating. Fluffy pillows… Nice duvet covers. Hawaiian Village itself is busy and very touristy. When we first got there there was a large crowd... More

We are very happy to read that you described your accommodations at our resort as “quite nice”! And that you liked our “fluffy pillows” and duvet covers. We do get quite a few Japanese visitors during August so that is why upon your arrival you saw many visitors from Japan (just for clarification our signage is in English and Japanese).... More

The Grand Waikikian is a great physical space, and the rooms were nice, but the tower itself is a great distance from the balance of the resort, and the elevators are completely insufficient for the volume of guests. Our frame of reference may be a bit jaded since our home club is Kingsland on the Big Island, but the service... More

This place is not for us. Way too many towers that pack in tourists. Pools are over crowded and the village is crowded. We had issues with getting the valet service to deliver our car in a timely manner. Rooms are acceptable. It's just not what we would chose for a relaxing tropical vacation.

Aloha and thank you for staying with us. I apologize that you had difficulty with valet service when you were staying with us.
