We had a great visit and loved walking every day to see the sea turtles and swim at the beach. The kitchenette was perfect for making breakfast and snacks. We also loved the ABC Store on the bottom floor! Great place to get snacks and necessities!

This resort was magnificent. The location was perfect. It was close to the beach, restaurants, and nightlife. There's lots of shopping and access to various tour locations. Imperial staff were great, friendly, funny, and professional especially the valets. The accommodations were superb. I used the hot tub and they used the pool. practically everyday! At night looking out from my... More

The room needed a complete overhaul - there was a cutout in the kitchen ceiling and the bedroom ceiling which had been nailed up but not finished taping of the drywall. So this was a first impression. Then we overlooked the air conditioning units which was by far very unappealing. The master bedroom had two queen beds and the second... More

Very clean but dated and needs reno. Fine for us as we were only in the room to sleep. Great location to beach, shopping and restaurants (but be sure to make reservations, very busy). Quiet ( we were on 21st floor) nice staff, very clean.

Stayed at the Imperial for 11 days - location is great - I picked it because it was close enough to walk to the Honolulu Marathon start and it is also close to waikiki beach and the main shopping strip - ABC store on ground level is good for food shopping - room was large enough with a kitchenette and...

The location of this resort was great. Just one block off the beach and very near shopping and restaurants. The staff was great and very helpful. The reason I would rate this location as average is because the rooms are very small with very outdated and uncomfortable furniture. In the bedroom we had to lift our suitcase onto the bed... More

This was a time share we were given. The property is dated but renovation is in progress. The staff was delightful and the property is located in a prime location. Would stay again. Tips: a higher room is quieter, hertz car rental in building, eating out at the Cheesecake Factory in walking distance is very affordable/mainland prices, kitchen had most... More

Nice lobby and street appeal. After long wait for elevator, not impressed with unmaintained, dated rooms. Several places where ceiling removed for repairs and drywall just screwed back in place. Needed earplugs to sleep due to a/c units below and car park view/noises. Wall bed sloped down hill. Nice location though. Staff very nice. Website showed view of ocean, maybe... More
