This property was previously the Prince Kuhio Hotel, and is just one short block away from the heart of Waikiki Beach. Far enough away to avoid the noise and challenges of the beach, but close enough for an easy stroll. The lobby and common area are gorgeous. My room on the 35th floor was very well appointed (not "OMG INCREDIBLE" but very nice) but the bathroom was GORGEOUS! No tub, but a very large and enjoyable shower (if you really want a tub, be sure to ask for a room with a bathtub). Staff was extremely helpful and accommodating - from the front desk, to the concierge, to the bellmen and the auto valets. There are only 2 drawbacks from point of view: #1. Parking. This is a valet only hotel, so you have to allow time for the valet to bring your car down. Not a huge deal, but keep that in mind if you have a car. #2. Executive Lounge is not "Executive". This only applies to guests with access to the Executive Lounge, but it looks and feels more like an employee lounge. Not up to par with other Hilton Executive Lounges at all. Two minor drawbacks. I will definitely stay at this hotel again in the future.
