“5-star accommodations”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 4 days ago NEW

The Aston Waikiki Beach Tower is easily (and often) confused with a couple other Asten properties with confusingly similar names, and it's essential that you recognize the word "Tower" in the name of the hotel, located at the corner of Kalakaua Ave. and Liliuokalani Ave. Cars, taxis, etc. must enter the property via Liliuokalani Ave., making the official address on Kalakaua Ave. a little confusing (and two other hotels with which it is often confused also have Kalakaua addresses).
The 40-floor building looks like it was intended to be a condominium apartment structure, not a hotel. The units -- mostly 2-bedroom, a few 1-bedroom -- are amazingly spacious and well laid-out, all with large balconies facing the ocean. There are 4 units per floor and 4 elevators, so the wait time for an elevator is rarely more than a minute or so. Parking is free (almost unheard of in Waikiki) with a very efficient valet service, though the hotel's vehicle entrance can become jammed at times. The apartments are beautifully furnished, with fully-equipped kitchens and very effective dual-zone air-conditioning.
The staff is pleasant and helpful, housekeeping is proficient, and public areas (e.g., pool) are very will maintained. Because the property is so very much like a condominium apartment building, there are no restaurants, gift shops, or boutiques in the hotel -- which eliminates the congestion that such establishments create. Location couldn't be better. It is totally safe, directly across the street from Waikiki Beach, and with countless excellent shops and restaurants within a 10-minute walk. The daily room charge is augmented by an additional $25 amenities fee (becoming all to common at upscale hotels), and Honolulu's taxes on hotel charges are among the nation's highest. So, this is one of the more expensive hotels in Waikiki, but I think most people would agree that you are receiving what you pay for in terms of a high-quality hotel experience.

Room Tip: The view is partially obstructed for some units on lower floors, but the cost is adjusted accordingl...

Joanne and I stayed here for 3 weeks March 2015 this was our 3rd stay and we just love the location of the hotel across the road from the beach so we could swim every day.

The staff are this hotels best asset they are always helpful and friendly.

All rooms are self contained with a full kitchen. We will stay here again.

Room Tip: Most rooms have ocean views we prefer the higher floors for a more unrestricted view. in March 2015...

My wife and I come to Waikiki almost every year for 2015 we had my adult daughter along and again needed more room. On this trip we stayed in a unit on the 04 stack we really loved this floor plan has the kitchen and the living room up front and the bedrooms in back the 04 stack is an end unit there are windows on three of the four sides love the different views I think every room in this condo had a nice large window that opened, not only incredible views up front of Waikiki Beach and Pacific Ocean but also Mountain Views and greater downtown Waikiki I could easley live here just like home. Living room and both bedrooms had nice flat screen TV kitchen was fully furnished washer dryer we're extremely handy we stayed for an extended period of time and was nice not to have to pack clothes for every single say.
The staff in this building is wonderful the valet attendants were so friendly and helpful I can't say enough how much I enjoy staying in this tower it is so central centrally located walking distance to everything restaurants shopping luau ice cream shaved ice you name it its just feet from the front door when you do need the car the valet has the car for you lickety split and the cost of parking is free this is a huge perk parking in Waikiki is extremely expensive my experiences have been 25 to 30 dollars per day. As I said in my other review if you can afford this building it's worth every penny you won't be disappointed

We rented unit #1903 here, a 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo through VRBO and loved it. You are looking right onto the ocean, you can keep your sliders open all night, go to sleep and wake up to the sound of the surf. You are right on Kalakaua Ave, 'the strip' of Waikiki, which I loved - I could go downstairs at 9pm and shop for a bit because everything was right there on our block. It's a ten min walk to any of the great places for dinner, no fooling with driving and parking. We got up at 6am, crossed the street, and the surfboard rental tables were open and ready for us.... 5 minutes later we're surfing in the Pacific. One morning I went across in my PJs to take pictures of my husband and daughter, I was back upstairs in 5 minutes! Less than five min walk each morning to any of the great coffee places there. It is noisy as you would expect, you have to decide if you are ok with that or not. Also, all places built on the beach were built a long time ago. If you want new (e.g. Trump) you will be a block off the beach. At least with this place you get a lot of space, a free indoor parking spot, a washer and dryer in your unit, and a full kitchen. Every place has its pros and cons, for us this was completely the right choice and we can't wait to go back.

Also they had beach lounge chairs and nice beach towels for us to use!

Room Tip: 1903 faces the ocean so master bedroom and living room have sliding doors onto balcony which looks a...

I arrived at the Aston after a long flight with 2 young children. We were too early to check in but Geri at the front desk put in a call to get the room ready early. We were given fresh towels and some goodies for the kids to use on the beach. When our room was ready Geri called us to let us know. Our room was roomy and we had an amazing view of the beach and Diamond Head. The complimentary breakfast was ample and again the staff were very friendly. Coffee was amazing too. We will definitely go back.

Aloha,

And MAHALO to these guests for allowing us the opportunity of hosting them and for taking time to share their recent stay with us.

I was really happy to see they found our location to be "great" and our staff to be equally "great" as everyone really tries their very best to make each guest experience the best it can be and I am so glad they were able to experience just that. I also noted their comments about their suite being dated and the pool area needing work and I am happy to share with them that renovation plans are being worked on for both areas and we cannot wait to get started!

MAHALO again to these guests for staying with us and I sincerely hope we have the opportunity of hosting them in the future.

Aloha!

We have stayed here 3 times over the last 5 years, but this place is badly In need of refurbishment and the rooms are really shabby now. However the location right on the beach is truly spectacular and I have yet to find apartments in Waikiki that can accommodate a family of 5 better than this place. It is so useful to have a kitchen, a washing machine and extra space for the kids. The old windows rattle in the wind, the air conditioning is very noisy and the bathrooms and kitchens are extremely dated. The views are great, especially if you are on a higher floor. The service here is very friendly.

And MAHALO to these return guests for allowing us the opportunity of hosting them and for taking time to share their Waikiki vacation experience with us.

I was really happy to see they found our suites to be spacious enough for their family of 5 and our location ideal for their vacation needs. I did note their comments about their suite being "tired" and I am happy to share with them that we are working on a unit interior renovation plan that will address the items they noted. We are very excited about the future and can't wait to get started.

MAHALO again to these guests for staying with us and I sincerely hope we have the opportunity of hosting them and all of you in the future!
