We stayed here for five nights as part of a larger Hawaii honeymoon. The location is excellent, being on a quiet side road off Kalakaua Ave (the main road) with its shops, bars and restaurants, and about a 5-miunte walk from the beach. The hotel is quite small, meaning that you get the personal touch from the very friendly and... More

My partner and I stayed here whilst visiting Oahu, and loved it. The staff were simply wonderful, and couldn't do enough to help us with anything and everything. It's a few minutes walk to the central Waikiki area, where there are restaurants/shops etc., and the popular "Roberts" tours/excursions picked up from right outside the hotel (very convenient!) The hotel itself... More

Our family enjoyed a terrific Waikiki vacation here in early August. The staff is wonderful, the location is fabulous, the rooms are in very good shape, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a junior suite on the 13th floor (one floor below the rooftop pool). The room was on the north (city view) side and was very quiet.... More

Good hotel in a good location. Great wifi. Pleasant staff. We had a room that adjoined the lifts and although the noise during the night was not bad, it did get somewhat annoying from around 6-7am. Pool area needs shade and more furniture is needed.

Awesome location if you are looking to be nearby everything in Waikiki. Staffs were courteous, warm and helpful. Located just off the main Shopping strip , short 10 mins walk to the beach and nice boutique feel to the hotel. Coffee and free lemonade in lobby is a nice touch.

Small, intimate hotel, very clean. The staff is friendly and helpful. The location of the hotel is idea, just a few blocks from the beach and the restaurants, and right across the street from the hundreds of vendors in "Duke's Lane".

In a destination that’s famous for being popular, the Shoreline is comfortable in its own skin. The hotel — 135 rooms over 14 floors — has a scale absent from most Waikiki Resorts, and the 1970s design creates a contemporary feel. Accommodations are bright and well‑appointed. ... more   less
