“Best value in Waikiki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

This hotel is the best value in Waikiki to get ocean front and beach views. The other hotels are beach front, but costs at least double. Get a beach front room on a high floor, see if you can get closer to the Diamond Head side of the front of the building. It provides the best views of both Diamond Head and the beach strip. They provide free breakfast, beach towels, and camping style chairs for the beach. The hotel is clean and decent room sizes, it's definitely not super high end, but you're in Hawaii. If you're there to stay in the room you went to the wrong place.

Room Tip: High floor, beach front.

We had an excellent stay. The condo (1504) is a good size and in a great spot along the strip (especially for families with young kids, as the beach with the breakwater and bathrooms is right across the street). Especially liked the big patio (lanai?) that allows for 6 people to comfortably sit outside (with a great view of the beach/strip, esp. for a "partial" ocean view).

The only downside: The condo we stayed in needs an update. The pictures on this site show granite countertops and stainless appliances etc....in reality the suite appears circa 1998 (tile countertops, tube TVs, etc). I admit to feeling "falsely advertised" to upon check-in...

But in general, we enjoyed our stay. Other plusses:
- Staff was excellent and the free valet parking was great for us, as our group of 6 had a minivan that we used fairly frequently.
- McDonalds and Eggs and Things are right out front for great breakfast options
- Kids get a free pail, shovel and toy
- Valets have a selection of beach paraphernalia to use for free

We'd definitely stay there again....I'd just see about getting a condo that's seen a paintbrush sometime during the Obama administration! ;-)

Room Tip: Ask for photos of the exact suite. "Partial ocean view" is good...equivalent to some hote...

We stayed for 9 nights in apartment #1904. It was just perfect. We found it through Trip Advisor and the photos proved to be exactly as they appeared on your site. Great views of the ocean, really spacious accommodation, beach things in the cupboard and close to everything. Will definitely be where we stay next time we visit this beautiful destination. The people at Captain Cook rentals were great to deal with...very friendly and helpful. All round a fabulous holiday!

My husband and I haven't stayed at this hotel for 3 years, each year we travel to Honolulu but had stayed elsewhere on our last few trips. On this trip our son was joining us so we decided to return to the Aston, primarily for more room. Well we were not disappointed, we arrived and were warmly welcomed by all. Still the same guys that we here when we last stayed at the Aston in 2009. No fuss check in service, we stayed in 2602 for 16 nights from the 21st November in the beautiful 2 bedroom premium ocean front suite. Great follow up service to check to see if everything was ok. All staff at hotel are to be commended on their customer service. You are treated like family from the time you arrive till you leave. Have had several of our friends already book for this year and will definitely be returning again for Thanks giving.

Room Tip: We asked for a suite on a higher floor, I think there is 4 suites on the higher floors so if you wan...

We stayed here for a few day and it was a wonderful place. Location was perfect... The rooms were clean, staff were all very nice and very helpful. The view was beautiful had a perfect view of the sunset. The resturant that is part of the hotel has great food. I would stay here again.

We just returned from a 10 night stay at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower. Check-in was a breeze and we found our room on the 7th floor with an amazing ocean front view. Our Unit # 701 was a corner unit with a large lani with amazing ocean views. The United was in great shape. The kitchen was large and had every utensil that you would need to cook thanksgiving dinner. The living room had a sofa sleeper and sliding glass doors out to the lani. Some of the furniture was dated but the view made up for it. There were to large bedrooms one with a king bed and on suite bathroom and the second had two twin beds and a second bath room across the hall. The unit also had a stackable washer and driver the condo even supplied the Tide.

They had a nice pool deck with a small pool and nice jacuzzi. The pool was small but with the beach across the street no need to swim in the pool.

Everyone that we came in contact with made us feel as if we were family and you don't find that at the large hotels in Waikiki were you just another room. Amy at the front office was so helpful and was Kiani?
I would recommend this to anyone looking for more space and ocean front views.

Room Tip: ask for an " 01 " Unit

We imagined everything we wanted in a great hotel stay and Aston Waikiki Beach Tower had it all. Beach Front, Big Lanai which faced the ocean, Very Clean, Big Kitchen with New Appliances and well stocked utensils and dishes, Great Coffee Maker, Comfortable Mattress, Big Bathroom, Windows in the bedroom which faced the mountain and kitchen which faced Diamond Head, free parking, washer and dryer new and working. We came for the Pro Bowl, but could have moved in and stayed for a month.
