Hotel location is great - not really in the hustle and bustle of Waikiki but more at the "GATEWAY" to it. Room was always clean and well kept. Pool is very inviting and relaxing. We had a view over looking Kalakaua Avenue so this was a great spot to see the Parades that weekend - our balcony was very spacious... More

Great location, helpful staff and an ABC store on site. Needs updating. We had a horrible box TV piece of crap from the 80's, but they state they are upgrading with flat panels. The lanai was nice and offered great views of major streets and traffic into Waikiki. It was a short walk through Fort Derussy Park to the ocean,... More

Employees are very nice and helpful. Valet parking is way too expensive!! Rooms are dirty and out of date. Need to fix the sliding doors or just replace it. Lobby area is too small. Should have a over night valet worker because I had to park my own vehicle many times after hours.

Perfect for a family vacation on a budget. Great location: near restaurants, beaches, shops, bus stops. Having a kitchen & fridge was very helpful. Room was not new, but clean & spacious. We had a corner room, having 2 balcony was a plus. The pool was small, but when you have amazing beaches with in walking distance, who needs a... More

Close to beach and all the shops. Complimentary breakfast buffet style every morning saved is big time from having to find a place to eat every morning or buying our own food. Polite and friendly front desk service. ABC store in the hotel. Very satisfied. No gym though.

Bought a groupon deal in March 2014 for the Waikiki Gateway Hotel. It was so cheap that I booked two rooms. Read reviews on Yelp afterward and thought I made a bad decision. Was pleasantly surprised by the facility. It is an older hotel in need of a re-model. Saying that the staff was friendly and helpful. The elevators were... More

We are a couple and we were very satisfied by the rooms and the rates offered by the Waikiki Hotel. It is a good location to access to the beach and the attraction in Waikiki (walking distance and the bus stop is just on the corner of the hotel). Also, the location is specifically good for Waikiki because it is... More

After checking out of The Hilton Hawaiian Resort we booked here at a last minute online deal. Without hesitation we checked in to a nice urban style contemporary suite. The room had all modern amenities like a modern studio apartment in New York. the shades were remote controlled and the view of the street and city at night was awesome.... More

I believe for a delux room i was expecting at least a better television. Or a mirror closet doors, so our clothes are not exposed to the maids cleaning the room. Also, on the bottom of door there should be a rubber blocker so lighting from hallway isn't a shinning in the hotel room. Overall, experience my stay was calm... More

We booked five mths prior trip for three rooms one being the Penthouse room. There was some confusion with rooms given on booking and what was given. No real answer was given but we assert aimed the room was being renovated. A simple direct answer would have prevent some stress with my husband on our first day. Once this was... More
