This hotel locates almost center of Waikiki main street. We could easily go shopping and eating after activities. Furthermore, we enjoyed the atmosphere of rooftop pool with my family. It was really relaxing place. However pool is too short and too shallow for adults' swimming. We should go another place to enjoy swimming hard. It is rather suitable for bathing.

Agree with most other positive comments here. Central location and modern stylish comfort.Thoughtful TV in the bathroom mirror. I was lucky to be chauffeured by someone else's car so didn't struggle with the valet. Coffee machine a nice touch but charge for capsules after you use up a couple of complimentary ones.

We stayed here for 6 nights and even though the hotel room is spacious, bathroom brilliant the staff knowledge and willingness to assist was average. Don't get a room on the corner of the hotel. Very noisy from traffic below and restaurants across the road.

Great service, good rooms. Nice modern features. Needs to have a pool and is not in front of the ocean, wish is 300 yds. away. All the shopping and restauranting that you will ever need, but still missing those key ingredients. Nice features in the rooms. Had to manipulate (should not have been necessary) in order to get a room... More

If you have small kids and are looking for a big pool and kids club, this hotel is NOT for you. We love this hotel for its modern design and its proximity to surf locations on Waikiki and the mall. We traveled with two 15 year old boys and the location was perfect for them to walk on their own... More

We stayed at Hokulani because of its location and our previous good experiences at Hilton Grand vacation properties. This one lived up to all expectations, with helpful, friendly staff and great facilities. The rooms, especially the bathrooms, are fantastically comfortable. It is also only a short walk to the shopping district, a host of restaurants and beach. Only issue was... More

Hotel was great and had no complaints. I would not stay at any other hotel in Hawaii. The staff was excellent and tended to my wife and I needs. The room was very high tech and blew us away on arrival. The soaking tub with the waterfall faucet was a very nice feature.

We had a wonderful experience at the hotel for our family vacation. The room (1 bedroom suite) was very comfortable and seemed brand new. The hotel staff was very courteous and helpful. The pool/Jacuzzi area on the roof was beautiful with incredible 16th story views of the ocean and Honolulu cityscape. The cabanas in the pool area (equipped with a... More
