We had a large room on the 22nd floor (paid 9$/night extra for this) with a balcony and a great view (though partially obstructed by the Hilton) view of Waikiki beach. The hotel itself is on the north/west edge of Waikiki with easy access to the Ala Moana Shopping Mall. The rate we paid was much less than what other well reviewed hotels in the area seemed to be charging and we booked directly with the hotel. We also paid 25$/day +tips for valet parking to save time and hassle with less expensive options.
Ironically, the Waikiki area was of little interest to us, so we would usually leave the area in the morning. This ended up working well because we were usually going against the flow of traffic.
This is a large hotel with lots of people, so everything feels a bit rushed and hectic, but I think that's normal for the area.
