“Hilton Waikiki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

A block back from the beach and close to everything you need. The rooms are immaculate and quite spacious, as well as we'll appointed. The pool on the 10th floor is large enough for adults and children to co-exist happily and there are plenty of sun lounges so you don't have to be there at sunrise to get one. The restaurant served amazing food and the service was exceptional. The only complaint from me is that there is not free wi-fi in the rooms, to access you had to be in the lobby or the pool area - a small inconvenience. Most certainly worth returning for another visit

Room Tip: Rooms facing the gardens have a great view

A reasonable price for a great hotel, would certainly stay here again, can highly recommend to anyone. Helpful staff, beautiful views whether sea or mountains, recommend staying in premier rooms. breakfast and dinners were of top standard and value.

We recently spent a week at the Hilton. The hotel staff are a real treat, super friendly and really professional.
After a bit of a mix up that was caused by out UK travel agent . We had a fab , relaxing time.
The young lady on the front desk (Tammy?) could not have been of more assistance and is the main reason we will be back.
The Mac 24/7 is in our opinion over rated and there are better options around, the middle aged barman in there is a bit creepy and seems to be continually fighting with the local staff, and making snide remarks, not cool in front of guests.
Opposite to that were the pool bar staff , a great laugh, very friendly and make what is a average pool area a real nice experience, it may also help that they are locals ?
All in all we had a great time and will probably return early next year.
Rooms are very comfortable and spotless.

Room Tip: Get a king ocean view, give Mac 24/7 a miss it's over rated.

This was a lovely hotel located one block from Waikiki Beach. I appreciated the warm welcome and friendliness of the staff, and found my room to be up-to-date in design and furnishings. There is a trolley stop right outside the hotel's main entrance, and most of my tour pick-ups were at this hotel. The couple of pick-ups that were not at this hotel, took place just a block away.

I was able to burn off some points and take a quick trip to the big island.

We were a little hesitant about the Hilton as it is a pretty old hotel.

Nonetheless, we were treated with nothing but superb kindness and hospitality. This is especially true of Adam, who runs the bars. Despite being busy, he always made sure we had what we needed.


Morale of the story- don't judge a book by its cover!

This was an excellent hotel for people who don't have kids, and want to get away to Waikiki, but don't need to be right on top of the beach. It's a block away, and that's close enough. The room was spotless and well appointed, the bartenders knew their way around a Mai Tai, the breakfast buffet for Honors members was fantastic. And the staff was friendly and professional at all times. Everybody in Hawaii smiles all the time. I'm coming back.

This place was nice & a great location. The bed was comfy and I really liked how the bathroom had plenty of counter space--which is rare. However, to be a Hilton and have no safes in the room and no wifi? Wow. That's pretty much standard today in even budget hotels.
