The lobby looks very nice, however after stepping foot off of the elevator my wife and I were instantly hit with a terrible smell. It smells like there was some heavy water damage that was never taken care of. In any case from the elevator to our room I elect to hold my breath so I don't have to smell... More

I recently received a voucher from my boss for 2 nights Run of House with free valet parking. All expenses paid for means I don't have much to comment on prices. This hotel is situated at the start of the Waikiki strip (plenty of shopping and restaurant venues) for tourists and locals alike. We had heard from previous reviews that... More

I have stayed at the Gateway several times over the last couple of years. As a resident of Hawaii, it is nice to get away for a weekend in Waikiki once in a while. The Gateway is affordable, and conveniently located. Their morning buffet breakfast is always delicious, and the staff is ALWAYS accommodating. While the building is older, and... More

My sister, a good friend, and I decided to walk the Honolulu Marathon this year. We got rooms in the Waikiki Gateway Hotel. From the moment we arrived it was a wonderful experience. Every staff member we encountered was smiling, friendly, and very helpful and our room was very comfortable with an amazing view. The proximity of the hotel to... More

My daughter and I went on a weekend getaway to spend some quality mother-daughter time. Upon entering the hotel, we were greeted with much aloha from the staff. I was pleasantly surprised when we were upgraded to an ocean view room! We were also given free water bottles each day, which was nice. The rooms were clean and simplistically modern... More

The lobby was very beautiful but the rooms are not the same. This is an average hotel with good location. Way better than Mayle Sky. I would stay again at this hotel. It is a little noisy because of the busy street but on 4th floor it was ok.

very nice location ...great rooms, internet access, laundry room and abc store attached to hotel. Love everything about this hotel. The breakfast buffet I would suggest to extend the hours longer till 10:30 or 11:00 am. Don't mind valet parking must price to costly for hotel guest.

I had a great time as usual staying here. The people at the front desk are amazing and very welcoming. They really give you the spirit of Aloha as soon as you walk in. I will stay here again and I recommend staying here if you have the chance.

It was a little hard to find with the GPS (parking was on the opposite side of what GPS gave) Valets were very friendly, the laudry room was to the right of where you parked to have the valet. Could see old bed mattresses. But hey, its only where the car will be parked. The lobby was really nicely renovated.... More
