I can't walk far, so I didn't want to stay in a big hotel where you park a mile away; walk across a lobby and have to wait for an elevator. This hotel had parking practically outside our door. The charge was only about $10.00 per day. The room had a little kitchen and the whole place was spotless. There was a courtyard with tables and chairs. We were greeted by cheerful "Kathy", who showed us our room and then gave us a discount "due to the economy", but it may have been "due to construction noise" of the tower going up at the end of the block. How ever, the noise stopped at 5:00pm, unlike the noise of Honolulu. We couldn't hear much of that because the hotel is on the very edge of Waikiki and there is a park across the street, so there was less traffic than other spots would have. The beach was a long two blocks away, but it wouldn't be a problem for most people. There was an restaurant specializing in egg dishes a few doors down, and a couple of bistros near by, but you have to hunt for them. Around the corner were Chanel, Coach, Lois Vitton, etc. Across from those was a three story mall with a decent food court, open to the outdoors. At dinner time, we were entertained by a singing group and then out came the hula dancers. Surrounding the mall are big hotels with gardens and pools. There were beach chairs to borrow, but if we wanted a beach towel we would have had to wash and dry it, and there was a charge for the machines.
