Queenie was an absolute delight! She is a shining jewel and her smile is like a fragrant Hawaiian lei. Her welcoming manner and care to make us comfortable was accurate precursor to how we were treated for the ten day stay. Although some of the furnishings in the spacious rooms (with plenty of plugs for electronics) are a bit tattered, the staff works to keep the place tidy and maintained--the brass on the entrance steps was polished each day. (By the end of each day the efforts to keep a shine were thwarted.)
Those steps are a bit of a problem managing luggage to the front desk, although the staff is usually available to assist. The valet parking is also a bit of a bother and expense...$25 a day. Nevertheless the attendants are gazelle like in their eagerness to retrieve the vehicle. The shaded pool is more hot tub.
Near Ala Moana shopping, the Hilton and Waikiki; convenient but a bit noisy due to traffic. A nearby restaurant, Snappers, offers a $ 3.99 complete breakfast.
