This Hotel was everything that we expected it to be, and more! We travelled to Honolulu over the Christmas holidays. We booked this hotel based on very positive reviews and also the price for our stay! The complimentaty breakfast also came in handy as well. (Unfortunately waffles aren't served anymore but it really wasn't a huge loss!) We loved the staff there, they were incredibly accomodating to our needs. We stayed on the 9th floor in room 902. It was awesome! It was considered a city view but to our left off of the lanai we could clearly see the ocean and to our right we could see the Ala Wai Canal. It was so perfect. Ala Wai Blvd is a fairly busy street but the noise wasn't a problem at all for us because of being on the 9th floor. Clayton at the concierge desk in the lobby was wonderful. Set us up for snorkling at Hanauma Bay which was a highlight of our trip and a must do for everyone! All in all, this hotel was suited very well for our needs and it's only a short walk to the beach and an even shorter walk to the main streets in Waikiki!
