We stayed only 1 night in Oahu so the kids could go to Pearl Harbor and chose this hotel after driving (which is not fun in Waikiki) around looking at hotels. It's amazing how many hotels, shops, restrnts, and people can fit in such a small beach area. Although this isn't our usual kind of vacation-we prefer quite and more "non commercialized" areas but everyone should experience Waikiki at some point. This hotel is in a great place-across the street from the beach. Nice view from the pool and the little grocery/gift store actly had great prices! The Jimmy Buffett restrnt is nice but expensive-of course. The rooms were very nice, beds are great, mini fridge, even the balcony was nice. Worst part was the $30.00 parking fee-almost half what we paid for the room. The staff was very friendly--which every Hawaiian on every island is so polite--they really appreciate the traveling public.
