Spent 5 nights in an Ocean View room on the 11th floor, overlooking Waikiki Beach, the Royal Hawaiian and out to Downtown Honolulu. The room was absolutely beautiful, with a nice Hawaiian "feel" coming across from the decor. The bed itself, including the linen, pillows etc was absolutely beautiful. The bathroom amentities were also first-rate, the shampoo and conditioner amongst the best I've ever used! The only minor drawback was the shower was essentially one ridiculously high pressured spurt of water which made it a little difficult to have a relaxing shower after returning from Waikiki.
We had breakfast included, and the hotel gives you a choice of 3 places to use your breakfast vouchers - Duke's, the Hula Grill or a small coffee shop near the entrance. We chose to have breakfast at Duke's each morning. Breakfast was really very good, although it would have been nice to see some nice fresh grilled tomatoes or sauteed mushrooms to add a bit of a vegetable component to the buffet. We also had a lunch and a dinner at Duke's, the food really was very good and, thankfully, reasonably portioned by a Hawaii standard!
Staff were excellent, it really is lovely to be addressed by name in a manner that isn't "fake". The standard of housekeeping was also very good.
The only big issue the whole stay - one day we went to enquire with the concierge about a rental car. For some reason, she saw this as an opportunity to absolutely bombard us with information about a timeshare program. She was really very overbearing and we had to be reasonably firm with her to actually make her stop informing us about a program we have absolutely zero interest in. She then became very short and surly which I consider highly unsavoury. This was disappointing as the rest of the staff were great.
Will surely be returning!
