“Nice place”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 30, 2012

The hotel was very nice and the location is only one block away from the beach. The staff were also very friendly

One thing that annoyed me was that you had to pay for wifi unless you went to the foyer. I think that wifi should be free to all guests as it should no longer be considered a luxury. I have stayed in hotels that charge 1/3rd of what the Hilton charge and the provide free wifi, so it seems like a bit of a revenue earner to milk some further cash from patrons.

Also it is possible to have the shower screen glass perfectly clean without soap build up. Maybe the cleaning products need to be adjusted.

However having said that it is still a nice place to stay.

Very nice hotel. Great location. At about 1 block away from Waikiki beach you get the closeness of everything without all the noise of being right on the beach. Beautiful room with a small deck, comfortable bed, nice tv and really nice shower. Only negative was the showerhead. For a nice glass and tile shower, I would expect a nicer showerhead.

Really nice pool located on the roof, it was big with a hot tub and bar and lots of chairs available. The restaurant was great. The restaurant has a pancake challenge that was features on Man vs. Food. While it’s way more pancake than is needed, they are absolutely delicious. The staff were very friendly and helpful when asked about questions things to do, bus routes and restaurants.

Only other negative comment is that they charge for internet access. It’s free in the restaurant and the lobby, but it’s not available for free in your room.

Would definitely recommend the Hilton Waikiki beach to my friends.

Room Tip: Higher up rooms have less noise than lower rooms, we had a mountain view room, which was very nice a...

the "professional" photos depicting this property are manipulated and "streched" making the hotel shots seem wider and bigger than they really are. This is not the famous Hilton Hawai'ian Village but a recent precurment by Hilton that is not as fancy but just feet from the beach.

Moved here from the Sherton PK and it's newer but curiously sole less. There trying hard to be Hawain but struggle to pull it off. More corporate than I hoped. But don't let me discourage you. If your looking for this sort of thing it's fine

This hidden gem remains provides a respite from the nearby hustle and bustle of Waikiki, but still just steps form the beach. You will not find a more friendly staff or better service, even at resorts charging three times more. The rooms are well appointed, comfortable, and quiet with easy lobby access and no mobs at the elevators. Whether breath-taking mountain side or the heart-stopping ocean horizon, whichever view you choose, you will not be disappointed. I wish I worked here.

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.

Room Tip: I had a room that had a "mountain view", which was actually better than the ocean view. It...

Arrived before checkin and was upgraded to Ocean view room, staff very friendly and helpful. Has a great view of the beach and is close walking distance to everything, only one block to the beach. The beds are so comfortable. Very good value for money
