Dropped my young adult kids here for a one-night adventure after my disastrous attempt to book them at the horrible Kuhio Banyan (see review The Worst). They had a ball. Beautiful pool, free dvd rentals, kitchenette, balcony, nicely appointed room, block from Waikiki beach. Very reasonable rates. We will be recommending the Aqua Skyline to all who come to visit!

Beds are comfy. Not huge rooms but enough room. The bathroom though was really small, really small. Clean and close to all restaurants and shops. 2 streets away. Wifi is slow . Pool was good. Stayed on the 37th floor and even though I was ok with it, the elevator can take some time getting down and up depending on... More

I recently stayed at the Island Colony Hotel with some family members who were visiting from the mainland. We had outstanding service and a hospitable welcome to a newly renovated 1 bedroom suite. A friend and employee of the hotel, Mona Lisa, was able to help us point us in the right direction, showing the aloha spirit to us during... More

This is an excellent property! It is conveniently located two blocks from the beach. The entire staff, from management to front desk, housekeeping, maintenance and security is fantastic!! Rooms are very clean and well appointed. Great facilities as well and a great value in the often over-priced Waikiki market. I am a business traveler and stay here every month and... More

While the hotel rooms aren't as new as the more expensive hotels, the rooms are clean and nice and not as expensive as the other hotels. We've stayed here three times now and each time was enjoyable. The pool is big and lots of room to lounge. There's a Starbucks just at the end of the block and the hotel... More

The location of this huge block is good, very close to the Ala Wai Canal and within walking distance from both the beach & shopping areas. The spacious studios are well appointed with everything a tired tourist needs after a day discovering Hawaii's treasures. The small shop stocks essentials, the laundry has lots of large washing machines & dryers, coin... More

The hotel is located app. 500 meters from the beach, however, it is only 3 min. walk from the main shopping street. It is worth to notice the building is a mix of hotel rooms and apartments on all floors. As I stayed at the 36th floor, the view of the city was obviously great. However, there is still quite...
