3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We were supposed to stay 5 nights but switched to another hotel at the last minute. We did reserve a room for 1 night since our flight left at midnight and we needed a place to shower. This place is just OK. The hallways stink so badly of cigarette smoke :( The room itself was fine. This place has had... More

I was told upon arrival that my One Bedroom Suite Panoramic City was no longer available because of a water leak. So they relocated me to a One Bedroom Suite on the lower floors which turned out to be a bit noisy on some mornings from the street noise. The room looked like an old hotel that had upgraded. The...

Our plan arrived in the early morning. Our room was not yet ready however they kept us informed and sent a request to housekeeping to have the room... More

This was a last minute booking and i would recommend Island Colony to anyone. Very reasonably priced a short walk to the main strip and best of all fantastic customer service. We stayed 10 days in a kitchenette studio which suited us, two twin double beds clean bathroom and kitchenette cooktop for simple cooking. The kids also loved the pool... More

The rooms were clean. It seemed just a little dusty to me. We were pleased with service. We needed a service call for the tub and it was fixed soon. We were very happy with checkin. It was quick and our room was on the 34th floor, so the view was awesome. We could see the ocean and diamond head.... More

The positives of this hotel was the service was excellent, friendly, kind and helpful. We booked a staycation at the Aqua Skyline because our friend told us the hotel was nice and newly renovated, which she was right about. We checked in on a Friday night and service was great and prompt. When we got to out room, the room... More

Worst stay I have had in years. Followed the good reviews and booked...boy was I mislead. Driving up it looked impressive. Do not be fooled. This is not a hotel and only books 100 out of the 1500 rolms for hotel guests. Pool is closed until after March. Ice machines are out of order. Renovations on all floors means primer... More

The positives of this hotel is that it is a good location on the canal and only three blocks from Waikiki Beach. It is in the centre of the shopping district. My room was clean and newly painted. The shower was lovely with lots of pressure (32nd floor). The 'kitchen area' was tiny, and I mean tiny, but equipped with... More

From the pictures online, I thought this place would be amazing. I was surprised the it was only 2 stars, but that should have alerted me to what this place really was. I agree with another reviewer that the renovations looked like a brother in law did it. The renos felt like they were slapped together, and you could still... More

This review is long overdue. I stayed in Waikiki in October and it was my first trip. Having had no guidance as to where to stay, I sought out TripAdvisor. Glad that I chose this hotel. All the staff (Front Desk & Houseekeeping) that we encountered during our stay was very kind, anticipated our needs, and always exceeded our expectations.... More
