If only you could see the dirty sheets and bedside tables, or the terrible renovation in the photos. If only you could hit "play" on a photo and hear the sound of airconditioning in the bedroom that sounds like a plane taking off.

We stayed here last month and were travelling with family. This hotel is amazing. The service was impeccable and every time we passed any staff member, they greeted us with a big smile and asked if we needed anything. The rooms were really clean and the decor is very trendy chic. Location is key, as it's on the main strip... More

I stayed here while in Honolulu and really liked the hotel a lot. It's in a very convenient location near Waikiki and within walking distance to the beach, shops, and restaurants. Loved the pineapple juice welcome! The room was clean and nicely decorated, and the staff was very friendly and helpful. I had searched for a lot of hotels in... More

We have had great luck with the boutique hotels recommended on Trip Advisor.....until the stay at Hotel Renew. The hotel is not awful, it just lacks luster. We stayed 4 nights before visiting two other Hawaii islands. The Renew's front door opens to the Marriotts garage (and often garbage cans), the hallways are dark (but not dingy), the rooms were...

Clean, convenient, cozy and walking distance to Kuhio/Waikiki beach. Close to a ton of restaurant/shopping options, especially the "ABC Stores" that sell everything! Staff were very polite and helpful. Upon arrival we were given cold, refreshing towels and pineapple juice. The hotel also provided beach mats and beach towels, which was very nice. Breakfast was included in the price, but... More
