So, this is a review for the hotel bar? I couldn't find the name of it anywhere, so the review is going here. My husband and I had drinks here our first night on Oahu. We've been to Oahu several times, but never to this bar. The drinks were fantastic. Expensive, but fantastic. They looked like cartoon drinks in an... More

It was our 1st visit to Hawaii. And we chose Halekulani because it was known as the most luxurious hotel in Waikiki. Everything was wonderful but we didn't think that it was worthy enough of the amount that we paid. Facilities were old and Services were no impressive. There was nothing special. For us, other hotels in Waikiki looked better.

This was one of the most beautiful hotels I have ever visited! Incredible service, beautiful decor, great food and drinks. I am so sad that I am back in NYC and not sipping on a cocktail by their pool right now. If you can splurge on a room with a view of Diamond Head, I highly recommend it. It was... More

The Halekulani is on Waikiki. That imposes certain limitations, including slow access from the airport because of godawful traffic on the H1, and smaller rooms, due to the astronomical value of beachfront property on Waikiki. However, they more than make up for it with the service. An individual escort takes you to your room, where you are greeted with half... More

Halekulani is tucked away even though it is on the Waikiki stretch. Upon entering the compound, you feel like you've escaped from the tourist crowd and can enjoy some tranquility. In quintessential high-end Japanese-style hospitality (I've stayed in one for 6 straight months), the service is discreet, thoughtful and thoroughly professional. This extends to the tasteful white-shaded decor and lush-textured... More

There truly isn't a better hotel on the beach at Waikiki than this gem, and believe me we have tried them all! Yes the rooms deserve an update, but they are spotless and so comfortable it isn't really an issue. The view can make or break your experience. It is not inexpensive so if you get a city view, it...

I cannot say enough good things about this hotel and how much we love it here. The service is like nothing else I have ever experienced and our love for this property is so great, that we have stayed here both times we've come to Hawaii. It is so luxurious and relaxing and every detail is just impeccable. I knew... More

The exterior, restaurants, and grounds are beautiful and 5 star in every way. The service by the front desk staff was not 5 star because I had to wait quite some time to get checked in. It seemed a bit chaotic at the front desk area. Perhaps it was a very busy day but it did not feel like a... More

Stayed at the Halekulani for 2 nights following a wonderful 5 nights at a resort in Maui. I'd heard this was one of the best in Honolulu. Well, yes it is very nice, but not the best and not great. In fact I was a little disappointed. Unfortunately we got off to a rocky start. We arrived at the hotel... More
