When I go to Honolulu for business, I usually like to stay on one of the edges of Waikiki to avoid the bulk of the tourist crunch. After reading reviews here on TripAdvisor I thought that I would give the Equus a try. I was happy with my decision as the hotel was very nice and well-located. Staff were very helpful and friendly. Parking was extra (I had a car for work visits) and a little tight, but worked out OK. Elevator was somewhat slow, but I have found this to be the case at multiple other properties as well. Room was cozy but not cramped and there are multiple places to eat and things to do within a short walk from the hotel. Noise was not an issue (I stayed in a room towards the back of the building, away from Ala Moana Blvd.). I thought that the Equus was a good value.
