Husband and I stayed at the Equus for 6 nights right during the Christimas holiday in 12/07. We picked Equus because of its low rate (at least lower in comparison!). We were not disappointed with the hotel. The location is a about a 15-minute walk Waikiki Beach (the Hilton Hawaiian Howaiian stretch). It's a 10-minute walk to a major mall. There are plenty of shops and eateries nearby. They even let us check in at 9am in the morning!
We especially liked the conti. breakfast. The pastries were so good and it really saved us a few extra bucks to have the breakfast provided to us. Free internet too!
We asked for several extra towels for the beach and they provided that to us, no problems. Friendly staff.
The Equus is recently renovated and the rooms are adequate. It's not terribly big, but enough for 2 people.
While we had no complaints with the Equus, I think we would like to stay closer to the beach next time.
