“Excellent location, very clean rooms, friendly outstanding staff, ample rooms, great for families on TLA.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 16, 2012

I love this hotel I'm staying in....It's very clean and very serious about the non smoking. It does not smell anything like smoke. The downside is I stayed with 2 littles on ages 1 & 2, the lanais (balcony) are not safe at all. The parking is free if using TLA or it's $20 per day, crib is also $20 or free on TLA. Not much difference between a normal room than a suite. If you don't have kids a normal room will be more than enough room. The staff id outstanding, I dealt with Charity, she was great. Service makes all the difference in the world.

Stayed here the begining of Dec 2012, the hotel has huge rooms compared to some of the other hotels, we were in a 1 bedroom room. It was close to The Pantry (small grocery store), close to The Int'l Market and about 7 mins walk to the beach. Hotel staff were very friendly, always in a very cheerfull mood, and helpfull.
Felt good to stay in a hotel that has been recently renovated as well, felt fully rested after a good night's sleep on the comfortable beds.
p.s. one small inconvenience was that one of the elevators was out service, nothing that effected my stay at the hotel

Room Tip: rooms with a balcony are larger, plus you get to sit outside. This allows you to have a drink before...

This is a great hotel for your money and the service was excellent! The staff was very helpful in finding us what we needed to make our stay more pleasureable. Always were greeted with an "Aloha" no matter the time of day or night! Our room was always clean and fresh towels were brought daily. The air conditioner was a little bit louder than I liked but we just turned it off at night. Nice and close to the International Market and a short jaunt to the beach. If you are looking for great value, this place is for you. Thank you so much! Aloha!!!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Aqua Waikiki Pearl Hotel. It's in a very good location from about three or four blocks to Waikiki Beach. It's close to the International Market and there are several restaurants close by. The hotel is lovely and clean, and the staff are all very friendly.

I booked this hotel with only a few days before leaving blistering cold Yellowknife for balmy Hawaii. The marathon was going on and affected room rates greatly. I usually benefit from last minute, not this time. That being said, king room suite was 179 avg per night for 5 nights. We were upgraded to a 2 bedroom ( just the 2 of us). Rooms were huge, but oddly laid out. Master had ensure which was the only washroom. Kitchen was adequate with big fridge and apt sized fridge. Flat screen tv in living room, wifi and great ac. Hotel appears to have just been bought by Aqua which has a few properties in Honolulu. Elevators were being modernized while we were there, lots of new paint and carpet.
Front desk staff was excellent!
Maid service was so-so. Beds always med brilliantly, but coffee was not replenished every day and we hung towels up and they were taken every day and once jot replenished.
We booked another week next door at the Ohana West, mainly because of price, but also due to maid service.
No pool but the beach is only a few blocks away
I'd stay here again if the price was right

It's the staff that makes this place awesome!
Great location and close to most amenities : Bus stops, Food Pantry, International Marketplace, pharmacy, ABC stores, Denny's etc.
Our first night we had a Junior Suite on the same floor as the laundry which was convenient for us. Rooms were exactly like the pictures on the website. A/C worked a treat for us that were still adjusting to the climate. Bathroom was spotless. There was nothing bad about the room.
We returned after our cruise to stay an extra 6 nights, being way too early for check in the staff held our luggage while we explored Waikiki.
We got the same floor as last time but a different room which wasn't exactly up to par as our first night. It did look like the previous guests had a great night though, with wet patches and stains on the floor. But we weren't too fussy so it didn't bother us much.
The only problem we had was the noise from the street but that can't be helped unless you get a room on a higher floor.
So overall we would recommend this hotel to friends and family and we would definitely stay again the next time we do come to Hawaii.

Room Tip: Higher floors have less street noise

I cannot say enough positive things about this hotel, from the beautiful staff who offer excellent service from the heart, to the central location, to the immaculate condition, well-maintained, and tastefully decorated rooms. They provide free wifi throughout the property and free daily newspapers, including Sunday. There is a large water urn in the lobby with large pieces of watermelon to slightly flavor the cold water, a very refreshing touch. The rooms have 2 double beds, microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker with coffee provided, flat screen tv, and room safe. The a/c units are updated. They are efficient in keeping the room at your desired temperature without the noise. Bathroom de-humidifier, also quiet, does a superb job in keeping away mold and mildew.

This was my second stay, having visited a year previous at the same time, Nov. Id' like to recognize the quick, positive responses I received by email from the manager, Tasi; the front desk persons, Harry and Charity, who are so gracious, Emmie, the dearest and efficient housekeeping supervisor; and Elisa, who kept our accommodations spotless.

As a caveat, if one desired to be right on the beach or have a pool on site, this would not be for you; but being so close to bus and shuttle lines and across the street from the Intl Marketplace, Denny's, etc., it cannot be beat. The jr suite with lanai is only slightly more expensive than the standard room, well worth the cost. For the low rates they charge, you get a terrific value.

I will always return to the Pearl. They exemplify the Aloha spirit. It is my home in Wakiki, and indeed a Pearl of a hotel!

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor or location away from the street, although the property is on a side street...
