Good news they replaced the tube TVs with new flat screens....not that we watched much TV, but it did make the accommodations seem more modern.
We asked for and received a ground floor room. It was in the Lanai wing so it was acually larger than the other rooms with a sunken living area that is the balcony of the rooms on the upper floors. Having the ground floor was perfect for us as we could sit and enjoy the park like setting of KBH with out packing everything up and carrying around to the pool side. The downside of those rooms is if it rains you can't use the porch as it is covered only by a shade top.
KBH has the nicest grounds of the hotels in the area by far....spacious and beautiful. The others we saw were nice but much more crowded into a smaller space.
The staff all are very friendly and reflect the quality management of this hotel. They are all required to go through Hawiian Heritage training.
They have a welcome breakfast on your first morning that isn't a time share sales pitch. They do tell you about trips and excusions they can arrange for your stay but it mostly was just a welcoming by the hotel staff and the buffet breakfast was pretty good.
Onsite they have a nice restaurant in addition to a snack shack and of course the Tiki bar. Everything we tried was good at both the restauant and snack bar. Drinks were quality at the Tiki Bar but we didn't partake too much at close to $20 a round. We did pick up drinks, snacks and adult beverages at Costco on the way so we were able to save a little on our travel budget.
The wifi is bad as has been mentioned here by others. I wouldn't doubt management will have the wifi upgraded in the future as they seem to be in touch with offering folks staying at KBH a quality experience. I see why others keep coming back!
On your last day they have a little going away ceremony that is a nice touch that shows it really is the most Hawiian hotel.
