You have to picture it! I had all my luggage, including a huge board bag around my back and I had just walked out of my hotel, having cancelled reservations for the entire length of my stay! I essentially had no place to go! Enter Angie at Hotel Renew's front desk. Super full of aloha, calm, upbeat and with a... More

Hotel Renew is well located, less than a block from Waikiki Beach. The cab fare from the airport is stiff at $52, but that is the worst problem. The hotel greets you with juice and cool towels so that you can rest and the girls on the front desk are great at calling around for times of buses etc. Our... More

I was getting ready to leave the island of Hawaii after 3 years and move back to the mainland. Once my apartment was packed up and I moved out, I booked a 10 day stay at Hotel Renew after some extensive research. Concierge: Rena at the front desk was so kind and professional when she originally booked my hotel room... More

This is my third hotel I've stayed at in Oahu and I would say I liked it as long as you don't have kids. It's more of an adult hotel. Some of the pros were: staff were very friendly, valet was very fast, small continental breakfast, balcony ocean view was pretty, room stayed nice and cold, had access to DVDs,... More

We took a family trip to Hawaii (Kauai) but my husband and I wanted one night off on our own before we our trip home out of HNL. Given the cost of the other hotels in the area and what they had to offer thank goodness we found this hotel. Though it does have the feel of a small boutique... More

I loved this hotel. I had a hard time trying to pick where to stay in Honolulu because it isn't cheap, especially when you are travelling alone. The Hotel Renew turned out to be perfect - large, clean, modern rooms, great bathroom, good free wifi, a stone's throw from the beach, close to the Zoo and Aquarium, well placed to... More

They did a great job in designing Hotel Renew. In a market where everything is "bigger is better" Hotel Renew gave you the feeling that you were in a small, boutique hotel tucked away from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The location is great - Kuhio Beach just steps from the door, and all of the activities of Kalakaua... More

The first hotel we stayed at was horrible and we needed a hotel asap, most of the hotels in Waikiki were completely full.

My husband and I stayed here the night before our island cruise. It was far beyond my expectations. From the friendliness of the agent at checkin to the whole atmosphere of the lobby...we had iced juice and a fresh, cold towel while checking in.
