I have stayed in some of the finest hotels in the US and I would include this hotel in my top 10 list. After the valet took our car, we checked in at the reception desk. There is no impersonal counter with a ling line, rather, there are individual desks that allow you to sit and relax while you check in. We were offered passion fruit -scented chilled towels to wipe off the travel grime during our check in. We were immediately offered an upgrade. We were traveling with 2 children and my mother-in-law. We ended up with a corner suite with a pull-out couch, separate bedroom and 2 bathroms. I was impressed how new everything looked. No dents or scratches on the furniture or doors. Tastefullly decorated with plenty of room for the 4 of us. This suite is usually $1,300 a night. We paid only $350! The views of Diamond Head were spectacular. My mother-in-law also upgraded to a room with a jetted tub which she could bathe in while taking in a view of the ocean. She loved it.
We ate at the Hula Grill the first night. Tthe food and Mai Tai's were fabulous. A live band played island music in the bar while we dined. We had the buffet breakfast at Duke's. We could not have asked for a better selection of food; fresh fruit, made-to-order omelets, pancakes, bacon, POG and much more. We got up early and took a walk on the deserted beach. By noon there was plenty of action on the beach, but by no means crowded. My 10 year old daughter and I took surfing lessons at a cost of $25 each for one hour. Having surfed before, I thought this rate was a good deal. We caught so many waves, I lost count. The big plus at this hotel is having a pool and hot tub right on the beach. Towels were readily available to take to the beach. When the kids got cold from being in the ocean so long, they just hopped in the hot tub. We could sit and relax with Mai Tai in hand on the patio while we watched the kids. Lunch was so easy at Dukes. We called the kids out of the pool to take a lunch break. What could be better? No driving to find a place to eat. The lunch menu was great with something for everyone.
The shops at the hotel had a variety of items including island-themed clothes and jewelry. The staff was friendly and helpful. The location was perfect. I couldn't imagine staying at a better hotel in Waikiki.
