The rooms in this hotel are small but okay if you don't plan on spending much time in there. The ac is old style and gets one side of the room very cold and the other only cool. The hallway is not cooled at all. The employees that work there were very helpful and the continental breakfasts were delicious. The... More

Gorgeous boutique hotel, who provided us with champagne and chocolates to celebrate our Anniversary. We were lucky as we had a corner room, with a view of Waikiki beach. Our room was small, but fine for a few days. DVD rentals in reception. Cool Cocktails from a friendly and very cool bar tender (sorry I can't remember her name, but... More

Nestled in the shadows of the giant hotels in the Pacific Paradise of Waikiki is this delightful morsel of peace and calm where the hustle and bustle of tourism is left at the door when entering the tranquility of Hotel Renew. Proximity to the beach and a quiet place to relax is what I wanted to experience during my stay... More

just got done visiting the Renew, and what can I say? At $179 a night and 500 ft from Waikiki beach, you can't go wrong! There is an ABC convenience store with liquor and everything else you need literally 30 feet away from the front door. The place has comfy beds and a nice staff. Parking is $25 a day... More

A nice, clean, friendly propery in an area marked by massive, often impersonal, hotels. If you want a great place to come back to, take a nap, etc this is it. If you want a massive resort, look for another. The Renew has use of pools (at a property across the street) and provides beach towels, mats & chairs. A... More

We stayed 5 nights at the Hotel Renew in September and enjoyed it very much. The front desk staff was always helpful and friendly, as were the maids. We especially enjoyed the small lounge and the bartender. It's in a great location and provides very nice accommodations at reasonable prices.
