Queenie was an absolute delight! She is a shining jewel and her smile is like a fragrant Hawaiian lei. Her welcoming manner and care to make us comfortable was accurate precursor to how we were treated for the ten day stay. Although some of the furnishings in the spacious rooms (with plenty of plugs for electronics) are a bit tattered,... More

Im a Hawaii Resident and I was scheduled to an early pre-natal check up at the Women and children Hospital near this property, so me and my fiancé decided to go one day before the appointment to relax and to be able to get a little extra sleep that morning. The Equus staff was super friendly and accommodating. They offered... More

Qweenie from front desk and all other staff were exceptionally friendly, helpful, pleasant and eager to help the customers. The hotel is situated in the center of all, assesslble to restaurants,...

My company has been using the Equus for a few years now and we've seen some decent changes here. Normally I'd complain about valet parking, but with such limited spots it actually makes sense. I suggested to the manager, however, they have some type of sign up if the valet needs to step away for whatever reason - otherwise you... More

Nicely furnished room, and theme. Rate was excellent. Staff was very friendly and very helpful. Hotel does not have restaurant or bar, but is very conventionally located. Thursdays and Fridays they had complementary Mia Tia's on the patio. These were made from scratch and by far the best Mia Tia I had during the entire 2 weeks in Hawaii.

Great boutique hotel. My wife and I (33 years and 37 years) loved the Equus. Great location - perfectly placed in Waikiki and close to Ala Moana. Staff was very friendly and knowledgeable. We will definitely be back!

The location of The Equus Hotel makes it ideal for experiencing Waikiki city centre. I have stayed here four times during my journeys via Honolulu in the last three months. Surrounded by attractions within reach and easy access to most facilities by walking distance. Directly opposite to Lobster restaurant and The Stakehouse and also two minutes walk to the ABC...

The Equus Hotel is a cute boutique hotel located on the outskirts of Waikiki. The location is great and in walking distance to Ala Moana Beach Park and Ala Moana Shopping Center. We walked to the shopping center and had dinner and did some shopping. It was a really nice walk to and from the hotel. The beds were very... More

Lovely hotel, roughly 15 minutes walk from the beach and the heart of Waikiki. Roughly 20 minute drive from Honolulu airport. The rooms are very nice with super comfy beds. The staff are also very kind, helpful & friendly and provide excellent service. Thank you so much! :)
