Donna Marie is the bartender at their very intimate and comfortable bar, and she is great! We met and enjoyed new people every night. If you like small intimate settings instead of tourist packed resort bars, this is the place for you. The hotel is located less than a block from Waikiki beach.

Aloha thewopper, It's great to hear that you enjoyed our modern and stylish lobby bar, complete with daily drink specials, games, and as you discovered, entertaining bartenders.

Stayed at Hotel Renew for 5 nights for my honeymoon and when we got to the hotel around 12pm, I was planning just to leave our luggage at the concierge and head out until I can check in at 3pm. But luckily, the front desk was nice enough to let us check in when we arrived at 12pm. That was... More

So as a first timer to Oahu, research into hotels, B&Bs, and such becomes overwhelming. I kept coming back to Hotel Renew's site, and mid-December pulled the trigger and booked it for just over a week's stay. The price was right and the location was perfect. Located on a quieter corner, just a block off the beach and tucked about... More

Hotel Renew was close to the beach, reasonably priced and appeared to be a fun, boutique hotel. Upon arrival the staff was very friendly and I loved the pineapple juice and room scents. Our room was disappointing. On the second floor with a few of the neighboring apartments and parking garage. I'm never too concerned with the view as we... More

Hotel Renew is just off Kalakaua - the main street in Waikiki. It's a boutique hotel - part of Aston properties. The entrance is nondescript and you might pass it if you didn't know it's there. When we arrived we were met with a nice cold juice and a warm smile from Lani at the front desk. She promptly checked... More

Beautiful boutique hotel in the heart of Waikiki. Front desk staff and hotel personnel are top-notch and foster the spirit of Aloha. Hotel has all of the appearances of a chic, upscale, modern property, but the rate is an absolute steal. Factor in all of the perks for kama'aina (no amenity fee/free parking), it's a no-brainer for those looking to... More

Fantastic location, modern decor and good ocean view. Overall there really wasn't anything that we could fault. The addition of a coffee machine in the room is a nice touch but there was no milk? Was quite expensive but we were staying over the peak holiday period so to be expected. Breakfast was enough to keep you going and was... More
