Pros: Two blocks from Waikiki Beach and easy access to great shopping and restaurants...anything from the outdoor market to Macy's and high end retailers. Super variety of restaurants all around. Luggage storage after checkout. Very fast check in/check out. Friendly staff. Clean room, updated furnishing and linens, microwave, minifridge, coffee maker, blow dryer, free wifi access. Comfortable bed. We were on a higher floor and enjoyed coffee on the balcony with an obstructed but still nice view of the beach and immediate area. Fantastic price as compared with other hotels in the area. Good sized room, larger than average. Good pre-cruise option.
Cons: Tub/shower surround looked dingy, low water pressure in shower, and slow drains in sink and tub. Low lighting in bathroom. Slow wifi speed, not worth trying. Beware of scammers who call rooms and try to get credit card information from guests. They have information warning guests about this next to the room's telephone. Also, elevators are a little slow. Be sure to look for the elevator in small alcove to the left of the main bank. You can push buttons for both sets and stand in the doorway of the alcove to watch which one will open first.
