The hotel is located next to the Waikiki Zoo, which is a very convienient area if you have a car since you can park on the street for free and you are just two blocks away from anything. The staff is moslty friendly and the pool is great: it has a Diamond Head view! Did not have the chance to... More

We booked a junior suite with an ocean view; we checked in late at night and you couldn't see anything. when we woke up in the morning, we weren't happy with the view so the front desk quickly found us an equal room with a better view. They even helped us store our groceries while the new room was being... More

Expectations met, not exceeded. Great location! Rent a boogie board for $10 and use it for 24 hours! Room was unremarkable but nice view of the ocean. Overall a good experience. Probably reasonable for this area...considering. The birds at the pool and open area dining are awful but tolerable. May recommend to an acquaintance but next time we're staying at... More

Just left here this morning-I have a few thoughts. First and foremost, the staff is great, very helpful and kind. There is a concierge on the lower level that is actually working for Expedia who was also very helpful. Her name started with an A, i can't remember but she was very nice and helpful. The bell desk staff were... More

Staff was friendly, great location, rooms were clean. The room met minimum expectations but didn't exceed them. The main drawback was that the room did not look like it had been updated since the 1970's. Old and not terribly inviting. My room was quite dark as well. If you can get a room for a good price then go for... More

My husband and I had planned a trip to celebrate a friends Birthday. We had planned to stay in Waikiki for a 4 day weekend. I had searched many websites, to find not only a great rate but a hotel that would ensure a comfortable stay. Upon arrival at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel, we were greeted by a warm and... More

I was there with my wife for one night only. The hotel is located in front of the Waikiki Zoo, pretty close to the beach and all the stores and restaurants over there. We got a room with Diamond Head view, which was a really amazing view. You can also see the ocean from the balcony. The staff was helpful.... More

Pros: good value for the location. Friendly but arrogant staff. Helpful booking guy in the lobby. Reasonable but overpriced breakfast. Great views from the food/pool area Cons: eating breakfast with pigeons flying into the food. Hearing EVERY WORD AND EVERY CAR within 3 blocks. Don't stay here if you want to relax. I learnt all the words to the song... More

I stayed here a number of years ago and returned because I like the location at the far end of Waikiki, across the street from the zoo. A block from the ocean, with a nice breakwater wall, for swimming laps. The staff is also very helpful and friendly. Since my last stay the place has been renovated, at least the... More
