This hotel is a great choice when traveling to Ohau! Just a block off Waikiki Beach, the location is great. While I first balked at the $25 a day "in/out" parking fee, I gladly paid it after trying to park in Honolulu! Trust me, just pay the money. Rooms, staff, view, all very nice! TOP NOTCH!

Great price, hotel nicely updated. Pics from some review sites outdated. I had reservations at booking, from other pics and descrip of area. Location best part. Instead of being crammed between inter blds, hotel adjacent to Queen Kapiolani Park and zoo, & right across st from ocean (most hotels are). QK lies on outer edge of hustle and bustle, still... More

The hotel name gives an impression that the hotel will be perfect. On arrival after midnight, being tired after a long flight, our first impression of the reception area was where is the bell boy to help carry the cases up the steps? Future days confirmed to us that all the bell boys were only interested in parking cars! The... More

The staff are really nice and helpful and the rooms ate reasonably clean. But completely outdated. Has a motel feel. We didn't mind it but we didn't spend much time in the room at all. The pictures look much better than what it is. Wouldn't recommend it if you can find something nicer go with it but if you are... More

Hotel has been redone and is excellent. Always a aloha from workers any time of day. Great pool area with bar and breakfast buffet. Hotel has the old hawaii charm and is next to the zoo and quiet end of Waikiki beach. Great for families. Best security I have ever seen.

I chose this hotel as it was one of the closest to the goal of the Honolulu marathon. Hotel staff were unfriendly and not helpful. Room was clean enough. Not in a very convenient area but the view of the Diamond heads was great.

I think this hotel is fantastic for the value! It was very affordable, around $130ish a night. The higher the better at this hotel which is normal. We were lucky enough to get an end unit. Therefore, we got a very large room! We never had any issues with noise. We got a great balcony that overlooked both Diamond mountain... More

The Queen Kapiolani is a "hidden gem" to Mainland folks. It's at the "quiet" end of Waikiki, and is an older remodeled hotel with drop dead views and good service. The value for the Diamond/beach view rooms are terrific. We have stayed at the higher end hotels in Waikiki, and prefer the more personal and quiet aspects of the Queen.... More
