We enjoyed a beautiful week-long stay at the Halekulani as first-time visitors. We were astonished at how private and intimate the hotel feels amid the bustling backdrop of Waikiki. The staff was superb and friendly at all levels -- concierge, wait staff in the restaurants, poolside. Special high praise to Dee Dee the concierge who helped us out with several... More

Room design is incredibly well thought out. Staff is friendly and efficient, with great attention to detail. Rooms have wonderful views...La Mer is not to be missed for dinner or late-evening drinks. Pool is great, though no hot tub which is somewhat curious. The breakfast buffet - and fruit - at House without a Key is simply superb.

Great hotel. Everything, almost, you would want in a hotel: clean, beautiful grounds, great service, good restaurants....almost I said; if it had a lounge that was opened during the day to escape the sun for a cool one it would be perfect. Hint: if you're looking for a party hotel or a hotel with a swim up bar...this hotel is... More

I chose 5 stars because it had all the things I love about a hotel: attention to detail, attention to me, super cleanliness, friendly & professional staff, no 'nickel-and-diming,' little extras that showed they were paying attention, little room amenities that weren't necessary but sure made the stay more pleasant. Things like, using my name, remembering I like tea v.... More

4th stay here although we haven't been back in years. I agree with the posters who say that the check-in process is more like a red roof inn outside of Indianapolis. Your car picks us up at the airport but the bell men and front desk still don't know our name? There's no one else around but we need to... More

We had visited Maui before coming to Honolulu and our ride from the airport to Waikiki made us think we should have stayed in Maui. The traffic, number of tourists, and number of high rise buildings gave us doubts about how our stay would be-----but then we arrived at the Halekulani and everything changed.It was like stepping into another world,...

After spending three weeks in the Hawaiian Islands, we decided to cap off the honeymoon with 2 nights at Halekulani. We had heard that Waikiki was a bit of a circus, and not worth spending too much time there...and we were seriously sad that we didnt have more time to enjoy it!! The area is bustling and full of fun... More

This hotel is truly wonderful, the staff are amazing and definitely go the extra mile. Honestly we couldn't be happier with our stay. Our room was clean nicely decorated and the balcony was pretty large with a fantastic view. The grounds are tranquil, and maliciously manicured. Breakfast had everything you could want and more. It was delicious.... Again the service... More

Don't get me wrong. This is a beautiful hotel, yes, and I was very happy to be there. BUT, for what you pay, I'm not sure... You can probably find an hotel very similar for much cheaper. Rooms.. The rooms are very simple.. No decoration.. Old stuff in the room.. just nothing special. No coffee machine or hot tea maker... More

My expectations were high given what I had heard about the Halekulani. What I found was a nice hotel with good service and not much more. In no way could I say it was a bad experience, just unexceptional and very expensive for what it is. The rooms were attractive and spacious but the bathrooms a bit dated. Breakfast was... More
