So the people on the front desk is nice except for one guy in his 30s who wear glasses and has dark hair. His attitude towards us was like if we was the one paying for the service. On the other hand, we left some of our possesions in the room. When we came back to pick it up they... More

We ended up here via Hotwire. Because we found gems in the past, I had the utmost confidence in them. With this end result, my trust is still with them, especially for the price we ended up paying. LOCATION: They're located at the fork where Kuhio and Kalakaua Avenues split. PARKING: Entry is on Kuhio Avenue. Pull into the second... More

Our family stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. Upon arrival, reception staff were friendly and professional. Lobby area has a '5 star hotel' look to it - until you get to the rooms. We stayed on level 5 & 7. Level 5 rooms look quite old in terms of carpet & decor. Level 7 room looked quite modernized. Both... More

I stayed at this hotel during our vacation in Hawaii from January 13-20, 2016. Early Saturday morning at 3 AM, the fire alarm came on. We didn't know what was going on but our adrenaline was rushing I tell ya. We heard water in the elevators, water dripping throughout the hallways and some other hotel guests said that the water...

The staff is pleasant. Desk personnel are very nice, and they provide a bottle of water upon arrival. The cleaning & maintenance people are also very pleasant, and they do a good job with what they have. However....the rooms are very sketchy. The bed was about the worst I have ever slept in. The mattress was cheap, sagged in the... More

I've stayed at this hotel many times and choose it due to the cheap rates and friendly staff. The hotel is in the process of upgrading its rooms, so still a work in progress. The penthouse and Terrace rooms are the nicest rooms in the hotel. 1603 is my favorite since it has a large lanai and views of the... More

Spent to nights here, arriving and leaving Oahu. The first night when we arrived we had a horrible room. Not clean at all, dirty and quite shabby. The second night, our last night on Oahu, we had an other reservation made for the same place. This time we were upgraded due to our complaints and had an ok room with... More

We celebrated New Year in Honolulu. Our 43rd stop during our tour around the world was at this hotel. During our travels for the last six months our family of four tried to stay within a budget of USD 200 per night. Where you can live in luxury in South East Asia with this budget, in Honolulu this gives you... More

We were lucky enough to get a room at the top and with great views of the ocean. This made our room much more pleasant! You could see the fireworks from the room on Friday night. It is close to the main strip. The buffet breakfast is nothing to rave over, neither are the facilities. This didn't matter to us... More
