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

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

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. The Hilton Hawaiian Village is a complex resort of hotel and timeshare towers, we have 7 towers total. August is one of the busiest months with guests who come on Summer Vacation.

First visit to HHV staying at this building.

It is really tough for me to write this review. I wanted so bad to like the Grand Waikikian, but at the end of the day/stay it really was just average, at best. If you're considering the property you probably already know the drill and may even be a Hilton timeshare owner. If not, then expect about what you'd get... More

Although it is saying well, when it returns to the room, relaxation which has returned to my home is felt. This time, the child seemed to be still more pleasant for the child's friend to have come for play. I was allowed to participate also in the manager reception of Hokulani.
