The front desk was very nice, they can only do what they have to work with. Our room was OK, but you had to go to the 2nd floor for ice, in the laundry room, which closed at 8pm, so if you wanted ice after 8pm, no luck. The pool was a funny joke, about 5 chairs, and it was... More

I was highly unimpressed wit this hotel even though I'm not usually very critical. Firstly, the staff werent very friendly or helpful. They didn't know answers to the basic questions like "what would you recommend to eat around here." Secondly, I didn't trust the staff since a lady at my hotel had all her jewellery stolen when her room was... More

Very dated hotel. No security deposit box in the room as claimed. Catered to mostly very noisy Japanese tourists which the employees of the hotel seemed to tolerate, encouraged and entertained every time. Bottled water that was supposed to be given were not given unless you ask for it repeatedly. Very small bathroom. Bath tub was partly painted but still... More

As though who have read my reviews know, I rank hotels and restaurants based on a calculus in which quality for the price is a key component. Service is also a key component. I booked my stay early and got a very good rate of $105 before the high taxes and "resort" fee (really?) was added. Total cost of $130.... More

review for one night stay (feb 28-march 1, 2015) stayed at the beautiful hyatt place hotel the first night (left because the gateway was cheaper). upon entering the gateway hotel, the front desk staff and lobby were nice... they offered water and oranges (which is what you pay for in the $10 amenity fee including wifi, pool, dirty stained beach...

This was an awesome hotel, service was great, amenities was just right and the property is very central in Waikiki. We stayed in the Penthouse Ocean View room and it was just beautiful, very comfortable for me and my family. We have a 9 month old and the kitchenette facilities was another plus. Thank you Waikiki Gateway for a wonderful... More

I really appreciated the value, location, and their attentive and friendly hotel staff. Having visited Honolulu about nine or ten times now, this was the best Waikiki hotel I have stayed at! We had a spacious corner suite with two patios, a king bed, kitchenette and laminate floors.

We left the the morning of 2/19/15. We stayed there beginning 1/13/15. We have no problems with the front desk staff as they were very professional and very helpful. The 14th floor housekeeping was the most impressive of all. Very professional and daily cleaning was very thorough.

Definitely will be returning soon. Awesome deal and amazing service. I read reviews on YELP wasn't as what it seemed. Although my room was a bit small and sheets wasn't cleaned, my stay was still incredible. I must say the breakfast buffet was my favorite and free can't complain.
