Happy hour and manager's special is only "one" free drink for your entire stay. At other hotels manager's special and happy hour is every night not once. Also if you require access to the Internet do not stay here. It only works from 6am to 7am. Staff are nice and the rooms are acceptable but there are much better hotels... More

I travel to Honolulu often from Maui and finding a hotel like the Renew Hotel is wonderful. Its a boutique hotel whose rooms are wonderful, lavish, new and quiet. The staff is superb and are always there if you need them. The beds, the shower, the towels & the complimentary buffet breakfast are outstanding. This last trip I scheduled a... More

Hotel renew was a fantastic experience. It was located close to shops, the zoo, aquarium, beach and greay restaurants. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

If you're planning to stay in Waikiki, but you prefer to be near and not IN the hustle and bustle of the main strip, this hotel is perfect. They're located literally one block from Waikiki beach; so you're within minutes of everything, while still immune to the noise and random tourists that wander into hotel lobbies, looking for a bar...

Me and my younger sister stayed for 5 nights in September 2013 and booked a standard double room. When we arrived, we were informed that they accidentally overbooked and did not have a room for us until the following day. For the inconvenience, the fantastic staff put us up for one night in a breathtaking ocean view room w/lanai in... More

This was our first trip to Waikiki and what we loved about this hotel was the location. We were close in walking distance to the beach, the zoo, restaurants and lots of shopping.

I stayed here for 5 days on business, then was joined by my wife for 5 days of vacation. The staff were uniformly friendly and helpful. I'll single out the main valet parking attendant and Casey, one of the bartenders, for being especially good. The room itself was just okay. I had reserved under a discounted government rate, so I...
