We stayed here two nights in March before our cruise. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the hotel given the reasonable price. We were upgraded, along with our friends to an oceanview room so we could enjoy the Friday night fireworks...which were great! The location was wonderful....the lobby and terrace area were delightful. The hotel is very close to the beach and the lagoon. We ate several meals in the hotel grill because the quality of the food and prices, plus the convenience were a pleasant surprise! We were staying 3 nights in Honolulu after our cruise and seriously considered cancelling our reservation at another hotel to stay here, we liked it so much.
