I recently returned from a vacation/ business trip to Hawaii and Hotel Renew in Waikiki Beach, was by far my favorite, upscale boutique hotel. Hotel Renew is a wonderful alternative to the big box, impersonal hotel chains which are all too prevalent on Waikiki Beach. From the minute I arrived and until the time of my departure, service was prompt, friendly, attentive and genuine. I stayed in an ocean view room with two double beds and an endless selection of TV channels on a widescreen TV. The room was chic and the bed and linens were luxurious and comfortable. The weekly manager's reception is a great way to meet other guests from around the world as well as hotel staff and management--all were more than willing to share tips on restaurants, tours and sites of interest. Given the level of service and the pleasant attitude of each and every staff member, I couldn't help but feel that management not only has the utmost respect for its guests but also for its employees. Hotel Renew has great karma and a wonderful attitude that shines!
