Wife and I stayed with a larger group at this hotel The staff were absolutely amazing and catered for every need we had. The rooms were comfortable and the ample size kitchen made self-catering so easy.
Only a short stroll to the action along the oceanfront, but back a little so you're not constantly in the thick of activity. Just perfect. Hotel suits couples and groups easily and has pool and spas + bbqs. We are definitely happy to return here again and again.

Stayed here over the Labor Day weekend. Big rooms, clean with a full kitchen and a nice view of Waikiki Beach. Got a good hotel room rate with free parking. Chose this hotel because it is close to Kapiolani Park where we went to the Okinawan Festival. Also very close to my brother's apartment. Was surprised to have two twin beds instead of two double beds but at least there was a sofa bed. Was also surprised at the all tile floors (no carpet) and the old, box style TV set. But the A/C and tile floors made the room nice and cold during a hot, humid weekend.

Nice place to stay and very close to the beach. The room had a movable divider wall for the bedroom that could be opened to create an open-type floor plan. We accommodated 7 in our room and it worked out fine. Nice size full kitchen included. Our balcony faced the ocean and it was a very relaxing place to sit and take in the Hawaiian atmosphere late at night. Everywhere you could want to go to in Waikiki is about a 10 minute walk or less!

With a family of 5 (including 2 teens) you don't expect to be able to stay in one room and be comfortable. Well, at the Banyan you can. We expected to be crammed in with a roll-away or to dish-out or another room.
The room was regular price ... it was a suite really. Big open TV room with a pull-out couch another room with 2 full beds and a FULL kitchen. The kitchen was fully stocked with pots, pans, silverware, cups, mugs, corkscrew (most important!!).
1 block from the beach.
If I want to fight the crowds on Oahu again I'll certainly go to the Aston Banyan - it is an AWESOME hotel!

That is fabulous news! Yes, our room can accommodates up to 5 comfortably. For privacy, the sliding door that separates the bedroom from the living room is a nice added touch.

The openness of the lobby gives you that island feel right away, a great start to your vacation. Additionally, the staff at the front desk not only makes you feel welcome but they are also very helpful, especially when it comes to finding specific foods for someone who has many allergies or directions to someplace off the beaten path. We have already made reservations for my daughter's wedding in November.

We just got back from a 4 night stay at the Waikiki Banyan booked through Aston. We had a partially updated room on the 36th floor. The bathroom was updated, but not the kitchen. We had no problems with construction noise or the elevators. Other than the bathroom, the room was old. We liked the space because we have a 1 year old. Basically you get what you pay for.
