Stayed here for 4 nights - booked the property through VRBO. Yes, the building is a bit dated, but not outrageously. The included parking was very convenient - the beach is 5 minutes away, and the ocean view was great. The airport is 15 minutes away, and the highway is about 5 minutes away. The condo was a 1 bedroom... More

My fiance and I stayed in Tower 1 2912 for 8 nights. The Banyan is old and dated, but is very well located. I wouldn't want to be any closer to the Waikiki action as it can get very noisy. Our suite was privately owned and had a GREAT view of the ocean. Just as advertised! However, its time the... More

Just returned from a week long first visit to Waikiki, August 1-8. I rented a condo , which was privately owned at the Waikiki Banyan. The unit was in Tower 2 unit 2512. The building is not the Marriott or the Royal Hawaiian but it is clean, we'll kept and a great central location. It is about two blocks from... More

We came here with a grandson. We picked it because of "family friendly" pool and BBQ area. My grandson made friends at the pool and was very happy until the management closed the pool. A storm that was coming never materialized. Instead of reopening they left it closed for FOUR days of good weather. The whole reason we came here!... More

We stayed one night here while in town. I was blown away by the lobby and the koi pond. Very neat setting. However, once off the elevator onto the 33rd floor I felt like i stepped into 1982. The floor seemed like was slanted and the odor of burnt toast or something was present. The room was clean and was... More

If you're going to stay here, you might do better by dealing directly with an owner via a website like VRBO. This is what we did and we knew exactly which unit we were getting and what condition it was in (it had been newly renovated and was in nice shape, BTW) I understand some of the units are very...

Luckily we only stayed for one night, but the impression that the "Hotel" left was bad enough to write a reference. The lady at the check-in was unfriendly and every word seemed to be to much for her. Her instructions were harsh and direct. The room itself was very old. Windows could not be opened. The couch was very old... More

We decided to vacation in Hawaii for 9 days. We booked through Priceline, we had no idea what we were getting. It was a 1 room condo. It had a full kitchen which worked for us because we are a family of 5. The room itself does need some updating but for the price and for what we needed it... More

Be careful of the pictures posted on trip advisor. You will probably not get a unit that you are looking at Check in Don't expect a bell boy (or any help for that manner) you are completely on you're own. Take you're own bags to the reception. Reception Very slow check in. We were there at least 20 minutes in... More
