5 of 5 stars Reviewed today NEW

We stayed for 6 nights. The staff at reception desk were very friendly and assisted in getting a room cleaned up in a very short time so that we could have some some rest after a long overnight flight that arrived early in the morning. Rooms are clean and tidy. Nice location. Plenty of eating places within walking distance. Local... More

My husband and I stayed here for spring break. Great staff and the rooms are clean and comfortable. The location is perfect. It was close enough to Waikiki area hotels and shopping, but far enough away that we don't get the wall-to-wall people walking around the streets. Most of the places we wanted to go to are within walking distance... More

I've worked with the great staff at the Equus in Honolulu for the past 5 years booking rooms for my outer-island staff when they fly to Honolulu for meetings. Although we have Corporate Accts. w/several other larger hotels, the Equus is always my choice for hotel rooms when my outer-island staff come to Honolulu. Aside from the Equus having great,...

Stayed here for two nights and got a good deal on the room. Staff was friendly, room comfortable, and the location very convenient. A very nice, updated property. Price has gone up lately, so not as budget-easy as it used to be.

Excellent overnighter with close friends. From check in to check out we had an excellent experience with Renee and Puka. They offered free maitais on Friday which was an awesome touch. The room was very clean and beautiful. I loved it. We had some drinks in the room and dinner right next door. It was wonderful evening. My friends and... More

We spent four very enjoyable nights here. The staff made us feel very welcome. The location is so convenient that there was no need to rent a car. Beaches, reasonably-priced restaurants (for Waikiki), and shopping are all within a few blocks. From the nearby bus stops, we took buses directly to Pearl Harbor and Diamond Head. The concierge arranged for... More

The Equus is a great place to stay for a variety of reasons. It starts at the beginning, the front desk personnel of Renee and Puka were friendly and helpful. The rooms and the bathrooms are clean and fresh. The beds are comfortable. But it is also being at the beginning of Waikiki, just a hop skip and a jump... More

The Equus was a great place to stay while in Waikiki. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The bed was extremely comfortable and the room was always clean. The location was just a block off the beach and very convenient to all the restaurants and activities. The parking attendants were the best! We were there with extended family and... More

For work travel, it is 20 minutes to Pearl Harbor in the morning. I felt very comfortable being there for two weeks. The staff was very friendly. The complementary mai tais on Thursday and Friday nights were great and made it easy to meet other guests. Good restaurants within walking distance. If you run, the path around the corner to...
