We stayed at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower in May 2012 and also April 9-16, 2013. My son has a lot of food and environmental allergies so we need a hotel/condo with a kitchen so we can cook his own food. The view is absolutely beautiful. The condo is spacious and the lanai is big. It is just steps from the beach and also just steps away from all of the shops/stores in Waikiki. The entire staff is friendly and helpful. The maids, valet, and front desk always greet us and some even remembered us from our stay last year. It is a perfect place to stay for those with kids. The washer and dryer in the room also come in handy because you can wash all your wet clothes from the beach. We have stayed at the condos at the Hilton Hawaiian Village but the location and staff at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower are hands down ---thee best. We hope to return again next year. Thank you everyone at Aston Waikiki Beach Tower for making our stay memorable and enjoyable. Aloha from California.
