My husband and I were in Waikiki for two days and we both agreed our hotel location couldn't have been more convenient! Hotel was overall very good-not first class, but clean and friendly staff. Breakfast was tasty but needs the addition of some protein (yogurt, hard boiled eggs, etc) instead of just fruit and pastries. Overall great experience and awesome... More

Last minute decision to visit Honolulu overnight. We were staying on the North Shore with family and were attending an event in Waikiki. Did not want to drive back late at night. Hotel was perfectly priced and offered the amenities we required; comfortable beds, local and with breakfast. Staff very welcoming with juice and cool towels. Shower very nice. Bed... More

The staff are very welcoming; the cool scented hand towels and juice are a great touch. Rooms are decently sized for waikiki, nice bathroom with rainshower head. The DVD dispenser in the lobby was a nice touch, and the continental lobby breakfast wasn't bad. Location was good, near the beach, bit of a walk to main part of Kalakaua shopping... More

This is a cute boutique hotel and the staff were wonderful assisting us in any way that they could. The room was small but the bed was even smaller. It looked like a large single bed. Unfortunately I didn't get much sleep due to the noisy air conditioner. Even when turning it off there was a noise that continued as... More

This hotel is lovely. While small in comparison to other larger chain hotels it makes up in personality. The rooms are very modern. However when we were there our air conditioner kept rattling.. we told reception and they tried to fix it however it still rattled. Due to this mishap they left us a lovely fruit plate that was absolutely... More

On arrival we received a lovely bottle of wine and a cheese platter with a personal note. The hotel is small but perfect. The customer service is amazing and they go out of their way to help. The bed is very comfortable and you get to choose a fragrance for your room on arrival. The hotel also has free WIFI.

First and foremost, we got a great price on this hotel despite it being literally a block from the beach in Waikiki. It is a boutique hotel, so it looks tiny in comparison to the giant Hiltons/Hyatts/Marriotts around it, but don't be fooled! The interior is absolutely lovely, the quality of the rooms great, and the staff really some of... More

We arrived at the hotel with a great welcome of pineapple juice, fresh towels and big smiles. The hotel is conveniently located by the beach, shopping, restaurants and nightlife. The parking was a bit tricky, not for the guests but for the valets, yet the valets managed to accomodate us with a pleasant and professional demeanor. The valets can be... More
