Our stay there was great! It was off the beaten path and quiet. The staff made us feel very welcome, and every night there was free wine in the lobby! How great is that? You could even go on a bike ride around Kapiolani Park and Diamond Head. The beach outside of the hotel was great for adults and children.... More

Overall a pleasant stay near Waikiki. Positives include a retreat from the heavy tourist area of Waikiki but close enough to experience it all. Travis is what made this property standout. He was attentive, always helpful and wanted to make our stay special. Allen also was pleasant. We stayed in an ocean view premium on the 12th floor. The full... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our quiet location although it was a decent walk to town. We made good use of the complimentary bikes which was a fun and faster way of getting around. Taxi was approx $15 from lotus to the pink palace which we thought was pricey but largely due to the maze of one way streets! You are unable... More

The location made for excellent views from my room of Diamond Head and Waikiki Beach. The property is also conveniently located next door to an outstanding restaurant called Michel's and Kaimana Beach for breakfast next to the beach, not to mention that you are within easy walking distnace to the hustle of Waikiki with shops and entertainment. Or you can... More

This just has to be one of the best values in Honolulu. We love the location, far enough away from the hubbub of Waikiki for a good nights sleep (in an attractive, clean, well equipped room and a comfy bed) but yet just a short walk to great restaurants, activities, and sights. My wife and I checked out the free... More

This hotel MADE my trip. Every single staff member was friendly and helpful. They truly care about their guests. The location was PERFECT...away from busy Waikiki Beach, but close enough to walk to it. What makes it even better is that there are really nice small beaches close by too. The room was beautiful, clean, and extremely comfortable. It had... More

Yup, it took some fiddling around to make the machine work, but the cappuccinos were pretty good (with no extra charge). Another outstanding feature was the comfort of the mattresses, which have a plush top layer. However, the beds are somewhat smaller than typical, and we were woken up at midnight by a loud party above us. Overall we were... More

I can't say enough nice things about it! My only complaint is the lack of "Hawaian" music in the public areas and elevators. Music ranged from classical to rock. For me, that was disappointing. For an inexpensive and fun breakfast, head down the street to the Barefoot Beach Cafe just past the Aquarium. Friday nights watch the Hilton Hawai'ian Village... More
