I have visited Waikiki about 14 times and I felt compelled to write a review about Hotel Renew as I feel it is the best value for a high end hotel in Waikiki. I traveled here with my wife in July 2011 for a conference I was attending at another location. The hotel has 9 floors, but only 150 or so guest rooms so it is quite small by Waikiki standards. The rooms are modern with amenities from the last few years. Some of the rooms have glimpses of the water while others are of the city (we stayed in both). As well, I prefer the location of this hotel as it is at the eastern end of Waikiki (quieter) and away from some of the bustle. This is not to say that it is out of the way as it is still a half an hour walk to the farthest end of Waikiki. It is only a 3-4 min. walk to beach (half a block) and next to some of the better evening upstairs pubs (Tikis at the Aston next door). We did not have a car so I cannot comment on parking, but transportation was easy without a car. (we rented a convertible for one day so i could show my wife the rest of the island - pick up and drop off at the hotel a block away). For 150$ a night this was about 50-75$ less than the other 4 stars in Waikiki and well worth it. The lobby lounge is also a cool spot to pull up for a drink after a hard day in paradise! Tip- There is no pool at this hotel, but if you go to theMarriot next door and order a drink at their rooftop pool you can swim for free!
