We stayed 5 nights with an Internet special. I chose this hotel due to the proximity to the Ala Moana and it not being right in the heart of Waikiki, as well as the floor to ceiling window views.
The first night while sleeping someone else managed to open our door with their key, luckily we had the bolt on the inside and they couldn't get in. The next morning we were moved to another room and took every security precaution. We didn't realise we had been moved to a smoking floor and later that night as people were smoking in their rooms I could not breathe and had to be moved again, this time to the "non-smoking" tower. Staff were very helpful, however moving us to a smoking floor was definitely not ideal and I would have preferred going down a room grade than to having a smoking room.
Two moves in a day, we did leave a few items, but the ones we left in the fridge were never found. The ones in the bathroom returned by housekeeping at checkout.
The room we did end up in was quiet and comfortable. The king size bed was comfortable and loved being able to have the windows open. The bathroom was very clean. Be sure to check the bill carefully as when we were considering getting wifi we noticed we could pickup other rooms with a charge to room option. We didn't end up using it at 11.95 per device per day, we went to maccas across the street for free wifi.
The free shuttle to Waikiki was good, however filled up quickly. The first night we caught it we were told to wait in the lobby and an announcement would be made to board, however there was no announcement and we noticed other people getting on the bus. We went out and got the last two seats. On the way back one of the scheduled pickup points was full of trolleys and tour buses and it didn't stop. So we had to wait for the next one.
Once we were finally settled and secure we had a good stay. The pool was nice and staff friendly. The meals seemed expensive so we either caught the bus to Waikiki central, ate nearby or went to Ala Moana centre.
Cab rank at the hotel meant we didn't need to pre-book or share to get back to the airport to leave and was very quick and easy.
Would I stay again? Maybe. Was a good location for the shopping centre and the staff were friendly and helpful.
