We stayed in this building while renting a privately owned condo. As others have mentioned many of these rooms are privately owned and I believe in the future they will all be privately owned as I was told during my stay. We rented from a condo from VRBO and stayed on the 9th floor. The 9th floor is extremely quiet.... More

We stayed here one night on a layover and I must say it worked out ok for us. The location was perfect for us. We walked along the beach where the Royal Hawaiian is and it was a Friday night so there was lots of activity. There is a mall there where we had a wonderful meal. We were able... More

Rooms are small and there is no parking, but you are 1/2 block to the beach. The buses run constantly and are very affordable, or you can park across the street at the zoo or at the Banyan for $12 a day. This really is a great location.

We are glad you were happy with your stay here. Although I am a little surprised with your comment about parking. We have parking located on site. It is very rare that we do not have enough parking, but it does happen. We hope the parking wasn't too much of an inconvenience. More

Great location but..... A. Window AC unit didn't work at 100%. B. Ceiling fan didn't have a light bulb. C. Assigned parking at $17.00 a day, and still every day for 6 days someone else's car was in our assigned stall. D. Maid service only cleaned room, made bed, replaced towels after 3 days. E.

I just checked out of the hotel last Thursday. The location is why you stay here, folks....Across from the zoo...a block from the beach...within walking distance of Diamond Head...This is not a luxury property but my room (803) was recently remodeled and certainly met my standards. Yes, it is true that maid service is once every three deals...I say...Deal with... More

This hotel appears to have been converted to some privately owned condos. The owner of #809 which we rented for 11 night was very kind and helpful. The building is old but well kept with a good elevator, laundry facilities, rooftop lanai, computer for printing documents, and reasonably good staff at the desk. The unit was clean, well equipped with... More

We stayed in unit 919. Very clean and comfortable. Just a block from the beach. Located at a quiet end of Waikiki and a short walk to many activities. A kitchen was a big plus. The condos have a few parking spots for rent at a reasonable price for the area. The owner was most helpful and responsive.

It's now been 1 month since I stayed at the Waikiki Grand Hotel and my disgust has yet to subside. My Fiance and I cut our 7 day stay here short after 2 nights because of the large cockroach that was sleeping in our bed and the poor service that we received when we alerted the hotel staff.
