We recently stayed at this location for one week. We had a 2 bedroom condo that slept 6 people. The master bedroom had 2 full size beds and the second bedroom had one full size bedroom. The unit also had a queen size sofa sleeper in the living room. There were balconies off the master bedroom and living room. The... More

Not a true "resort" hotel, but I give it a 4 1/2 overall. 1BR's are a little small, wish we could have had a 1BR w 2 baths at least. Murphy bed as well as sofa bed, + room bed. But clean, wifi ($25 for the week), pool on roof, workout room, sauna, ABC store and Denny's on site (not... More

In fact I stayed at this property in 1975. WOW has it chamged. Did I say Great Location. On block from beach, one block from Aloha Landing, where all the tour busses pick up passengers. Denny's Restaurant and ABC store located on bottom floor. Ruth Chris across the street and really everything you need or want within one block. We... More

Definitely the best part about this hotel/timeshare is the location. We stayed 5 nights at the Outrigger Reef on the Beach which is 75 yards away and that place is 5 stars and full of Aloha Spirit. We didn't encounter any rude employees at the Imperial they just don't have anything to hang there hat on other than location. Our... More

the only thing saving this hotel in our estimation was the location and a Dennys resturant next door and an ABC shop.Room looked good on website, has a kitchenette and nice sofa table chairs etc but a pull out bed from the wall and a double one at that. Never ever have we had a double bed in all our... More

The location of this hotel can't get any better. This is my second time staying here and it was just like the first. You are greater with the Aloha Spirit from everyone. Lynette & Melvin at the bell desk are awesome and remember me from my first visit which was a year ago, how awesome is that. Don't get me... More

The Imperial is located in a very nice part of Waikiki. It is only a five minute walk to the beach and lovely park area. The shops and restaurants are in the other direction and even closer. The staff were friendly and helpful. The penthouse had a kitchen area as well that was modern and effective. Sitting on the one... More

This hotel is part of a timeshare, but you can also book it for reasonable prices not in timeshare system. The location is fabulous, a block from the beach, across the street from shopping and dining, an ABC at the door. The service is also warm, personal, and welcoming. The front desk and valet area was always staffed with smiling,... More

Stayed here for six nights in mid to late July. Staff were okay. We stayed in the Banyan Suite with partial views of the ocean which we were happy with. Suite was decent sized, could've done with some complimentary coffee but that's not a huge issue. Otherwise it was clean, plenty of towels. As far as appearance is concerned, the... More

I found a special online to stay here. The staff was attentive and the rooms had an old school charm. They were very clean. (If you've read any of my other reviews then you know I am big on cleanliness) We were facing Lewers Street and could see the Ocean, as well. You are right in the heart of Waikiki... More
