“Great location!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 15, 2014

We stayed here 7/11/14-7/13/14. Hotel was great stayed in ocean view select room and it was perfect. Ask for higher floor rooms to avoid the loud noise from the Tiki grill restaurant downstairs. Been in other hotels in Waikiki and so far this was the best. The elevators were a tad bit confusing at first but after the first night it was easy. The location is perfect, literally right across the street from the beach. Breakfast was nice they serve cereal, donuts, fruit. No meat though. I would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: I think the "select" rooms are the updated rooms. Ask for higher floors. Ocean view rooms...

Excellent location. Across from Waikiki beach with easy access in/out of the Waikiki area. Within waking distance to the many restaurants and shops on Kauakaua Blvd. Staff is very friendly. Definitely took advantage of the free daily breakfast, cooler bag, and DVD rentals.

We stayed here for two nights before our cruise. Check in was not too long. When we checked in, they upgraded us to a larger room which was great after getting off a 9 hour flight. Our room was ready and with the extra space, our luggage was out of the way. We had a partial ocean view room on the 7th floor which still gave us a beautiful view. The hotel was relatively quiet and the beds were comfortable. The room was starting to show a little wear, but overall it was a nice room. The breakfast was good with a nice assortment of continental breakfast items plus items like fresh fruit and fountain soda (which made my husband happy). We ate breakfast on the pool deck where they had someone playing Hawaiian music. It was nice. While we did find a seat, the pool area is relatively small and I saw a lot of people taking their breakfast to their rooms (did not see many going to the beach). On our last day, we asked for a late check out. The Aston may do this, but with a $25 fee to check out by 2:00. My only real complaint about the hotel was how they handled the cars in the valet area and the space to pick up tour buses. Downtown Waikiki is busy and I get that, but for 3 days, we had to weave in and out of cars that were coming in or to be valeted. The entire front entrance way was chaotic. Also, when we called to ask the bellman to get us a cab, we came down and he had not called a cab. (Not a huge deal as you can usually flag down a cab.) The hotel is across the street from Waikiki beach and next to the zoo. The are several decent restaurants in the area. The "main" shopping and dining areas of Waikiki is about a 6-8 block walk (or a $10 cab ride for 3). One nice touch the hotel had was lemon and orange water all day in the lobby. There was also a convenience store to buy sodas and snacks. Would stay here again.

Room Tip: A partial ocean view still gave us a great view of the beach, but with no outdoor balcony seating (a...

We had 3 rooms reserved for our family and upon check-in one of the rooms was a king bed for 3 adults even though the reservation was for 2 beds. The desk clerk quickly remedied the problem and we were very pleased with the rooms and the wonderful view of the beach. One of our 3 rooms was not cleaned. It was at the end of the hall and I guess it just got missed. Towels were delivered promptly when we called.
The lunchbox provided in the room is a wonderful idea to pack breakfast for the beach. All the appropriate containers were by the food in the buffet so it is easy to pack your picnic breakfast. Many restaurants and shops are within walking distance but if you choose to stay close the Tiki Restaurant serves great food.
The inconveniences we experienced were minor and the staff quickly responded. We would stay at the Aston again.

Well here we are back at the Aston again. My last review that you might have read had a couple of problems. They replied and asked for a second chance to put thinks right.I had an excellent rate second time around.When we arrived the staff where great all that i had requested i had. The rooms are not the most modern but they are clean and comfortably and the view from the pool side room is to die for, but please keep in mind that you dont pay Marriott or Hilton prices either. You still get breakfast dvd and playstaion rental and Wi Fi for a fee i think it was about $22 a day its called a resort fee and i noticed that the coffee is free in the room unlike last time when after the first 2 cups it was $2 a cup. The Tiki bar still serves excellent food and drink and is very reasonably about $5 a beer and bar meals about $14 .Mike who looked after us all week was fantastic.He remembered us from the last time we visted .Hes the one with the pony tail got to say that he is one of the best waiters i have had the pleasure to meet.Look out for him.We did have a couple of issues with A/C and the Wi Fi but they where put right straight away, you cant ask for more than that. We wiil be definitely go back

Room Tip: Ask for room pool side this gives you a fantstic view of the sunsets

Aston Hotels & Resorts, a Waikiki Beach side Hotel, has a smoke free ambiance & is a great place to stay. The staffs are friendly and the hotel is at the heart of the town where the beach is at a walking distance! It has free Wifi. We took a suite. The room was nice and it had a breathtaking view from the balcony...a very neat view of the Diamond Head Crater! There are quite a lot of shops and restaurants around. A great place to hang out in the evening..take a stroll by the beach. The parking is however not inside the hotel,but around the corner and is not free.
Also if u have kids, the Honolulu zoo is walking distance from the hotel.

Room Tip: Take a room with a balcony facing the ocean/city. It's Hawaii and any view is a great view! We d...

We arrived and after only a short wait were shown our room. Generous in size and great in location, opposite Waikiki beach. Breakfast was included as was Wifi. You could either enjoy your breakfast around the pool or take it away in the handy cooler bag included in your room. We were able to walk up and down Waikiki Beach, taking in the shops and the sights. As first time visitors it was fantastic to discover that our tours left from right outside our hotel (or 100m up the road), even though at times it was a bit crowded and chaotic. Access to food was simple, with Subway, Wolfgang Express and other restaurants close by. On a rare day off, we were also pleased to discover the Honolulu Zoo a short walk away. (Apparently the aquarium is too, but we couldn't find it).

There are more expensive hotels I'm sure, with more to offer. However the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel more than adequately met our needs.

Thank you for staying with us and for sharing your review! We are happy to hear that found our rooms to be comfortable, and enjoyed our Breakfast on the Beach! We are glad that you found our location to be convenient for your plans. The zoo is very close by, and if you were to continue East on Kalakaua Street, the aquarium is a little further up on the beach side. We are sorry that you weren't able to find it! It's our pleasure to host awesome guests like you, and we are honored that you chose to stay with us on your first visit to Hawaii! We are thrilled to hear that you had a memorable stay with us!
