“Great location, great views, nice roomy apartment for five people.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

On arrival at the Waikiki beach tower our room was ready. It was very tidy and comfortable and was serviced twice daily. They even did our dishes for us. Views were superb. We were on 12th floor but offered higher at which I declined more for fear of heights. Staff were fantastic nothing was too much. Very family orientated. After two weeks on the mainland of America living in hotels with no facilites was great to have fully self contained apartment with everything needed.
Location was fantastic walked straight across the road to waikiki beach where there was a swallow water inlet great for the kids. Public transport just down the road literally. Just make sure if using private tours they know which Aston hotel you are at as we did have little bit of confusion but nothing to do with our hotel.

We have 4 boys ages 15, 13, 11 and 6. This place was perfect. Our place faced the ocean and all the amenities were new. You take the elevator down and you walk right across the street to the beach. 2 boys slept on the pullout couch and 2 slept in 1 of the 2 bedrooms. It was nice to load up on groceries so we could simply walk back and eat lunch or while some stayed at the beach. The location can't be beat as you are right in the action. We surfed, scuba dived, whale watched, went to Diamond head, went on a sub, and went to Costco and loaded up on supplies. It's an ideal place. They have wave boards you can borrow and other stuff at the condo so ask before you go and buy that . Our place was exactly like the pictures. I would get up early and watch the crazy surfers go out a 5am. There were 100! My wife and I would go for a run while the boys slept and it was a just an awesome vacation for us. The place was great for us and hard to beat. We have stayed at other places but this was the best. You can go cheaper a few blocks in but it's just not as convenient and not nearly as nice. You pay a little extra but it's worth it!

Wonderful location, massive apartment with great view on level 22. Staff very helpful at reception , Yasu especially and concierge. I don't understand why a family would choose small hotel rooms when this place is on offer. Everything you need is in this apartment. Clean and comfortable.

Rarely have I enjoyed such a perfect stay. To start with, let us say that this condominium resort’s clientele appears to consist mostly of demanding Japanese tourist, which may explain much of what follows… The location, right on the best part of the beautiful Waikiki beach, can’t be beaten. The staff, consisting mostly of incredibly polite and friendly Japanese women, is absolutely first class. But the real shock is when you enter the apartment and realize its size, the high quality of the materials, furniture and equipment, and when you discover the amazing view of the turquoise Pacific Ocean shining through the huge glass doors of the terrace. I estimated the whole apartment (# 2301) to be approximately 200 square meters including a 30 square meters terrace. It had obviously been recently renovated and had two bedrooms and two bathrooms, and the best equipped kitchen one can imagine, with high end oven and microwave oven, dishwasher, rice cooker, coffee maker, a huge fridge including ice maker etc… A huge flat screen TV, DVD player and a Bose sound system in the living room and in each of the bedrooms. A washer and dryer and of course a safe and perfectly working A/C... as well as the curious Japanese WCs with control panel! The room had breathtaking views on 3 sides: the Ocean and Waikiki beach on the front terrace, Diamond Head through the living room and master bedroom side windows, and the mountains from the two bedroom windows at the rear. The room is serviced twice a day, and cleanliness leaves nothing to be desired. No doubt this is one of the most beautiful placed I ever stayed; I wish I could live there! Just a warning, in order to fully enjoy this property you certainly need to be in one of the upper floors (I would say 20th story or higher) or else views may be blocked by adjacent buildings and street noise may be an issue.

Room Tip: Choose a room on the 20th floor or above

On arrival from Australia, we were exhausted, and although unable to get an early check in, the staff were fantastic, and super friendly, offering to take our luggage and recommending we use the pool level to wait. This property would definitely benefit from a cafe/restaurant on level 4 and an update of the change rooms/pool area. That would be the only negative though.
We were showed to our room on the 17th floor which was two bedroom ocean front with awesome views of Waikiki and also fully renovated. There was plenty of room for our large family of 4 children and two adults. The beds were super comfortable and being equipped with a kitchen allowed us to prepare some of our own meals.
The location was fantastic directly across the road from Waikiki beach, close to lots of fantastic shops and restaurants.
Not much on offer in terms of entertainment at the hotel but definitely a great base and good value. The kids' gift of buckets/spades was a nice touch. No hesitation recommending for big families.

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.

We had moved out of the last condo on the beach after 4 nights hoping for the holiday we were all dreaming of......we couldn't have asked for more...the minute we walked into the foyer we were greeted with smiles and helpful staff. There is only one chance to make a first impression and they all did it so well. We were checked in early and shown 2 amazing ocean deluxe rooms. We opted to pay for an upgrade to a two bed two bathroom so our daughter didn't need to Sleep on a pullout.Room 2902 is on a front and corner with amazing views of the beach and diamond head with large lanai directly across the road from the beach.our room was just like the photo on the website so we couldn't have asked for more.no flat screen tv but that was no problem as we were here to tick off snorkelling ,surfing ,and shopping..
Lots of afternoon sun on the lanai and pool area. Pool itself is small but idea for a quick cool off.
PROS.
Staff are all so helpful and friendly
Location and view
Wifi in the room is free
Large, modern huge condo with washer, drier, and everything you need in the kitchen.
Light, bright and clean.
Surfboard storage.
Pool

CONS
The aircon is noisy but we are a family that would rather sleep with ceiling fans not aircon
That we probably can't afford to stay here again.

We found all condos to be very expensive when spending kiwi $$ but to stay in waikiki and not stay on the beach just didn't seem right.


Love every minute of our stay here.....thank you

Room Tip: Try to get above level 10 to get an un obstructive view and possibly even higher once the new McDona...
