I went to Oahu for 4 full days on a mini vacation. The hotel started my vacation off beautifully. The hotel was very nice, and the gentleman at the front desk upgraded us to an Ocean view room for free! He was so nice! Our view was facing towards Diamond head and the Hilton Lagoon, but we could see all of Waikiki beach and ocean area too. It was so pretty. Our room was huge! Soft bed, and I like the big tub separate from the shower. I was nervous about the hotel because of some of the reviews I read, but I thought the breakfast was great, you get a discount if you don't get the continental breakfast, and the regular menu food was very good, especially the macadamia nut pancakes. It is a little far from "the action" BUT it is nice because at night you don't get a lot of noise from the parties, and it is equal distance walking to the big mall there and to the restaurant and shopping area in the opposite direction. My only gripe is there aren't really any close restaurants that aren't a chain, but with downtown Waikiki such a close walk away, it didn't bother us too much. Another thing is checkout is at noon, and the day we left our flight wasn't until 9PM. They were nice enough to not only hold our bags, but allow us to shower and freshen up before our flight! I thought that was above and beyond. I would stay here again on my next visits to Hawaii.
