We just stayed one night on our way to the mainland, this is very nice, tidy and clean small hotel. Bed was very comfortable, excellent linen, and plenty of towels. Location was also great, really close to the beach and some rooms have an ocean view. I just prefer having a balcony, it looks like some rooms may have one... More

This hotel was one of the best hotels that I have stayed at ever. Almost everything about the hotel was perfect from start to finish. Upon arriving at the hotel we were greeted with cold towels and fresh juice. While I understand that this was included in the resort fee, it was definitely quite nice. The staff was incredibly friendly... More

Good staff. I enjoyed my stay here. It was very clean and the provided services met my expectations. It was close to everything in Waikiki - I really appreciated the location. You have everything in Waikiki.

I recently visited Hotel Renew for two nights, on the back end of my week-long sabbatical on the island of Oahu. The staff was friendly and accommodating - loved the complimentary beach chairs and beach towels, the location was steps away from Waikiki and the beautiful Pacific ocean/ Kapiolani Park. The room felt like a cool sanctuary; clean, neat and... More

Overall very satisfied, this was our first trip to Hawaii. The highlight for us was Char the Cocktail waitress who gave us the insider tips on where to eat and drink. On top of that Char makes the greatest cocktails east of the International Date Line!
