“Great Business Hotel near Ala Moana”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

The Prince is a well run hotel over looking the Yacht Harbor at Waikiki and offers great views of the Pacific and those famous Hawaiian sunsets. The hotel is waterfront but has no beach. So if you are in Honolulu for sun and surf the Hapuna is not your best option. The shadows from its own twin towers make the pool fairly useless for sunbathing until the afternoon. The lobby bar makes the best Mai Tai in the Islands. Skip all the restaurants. Locals love them but unless you favor quantity over quality the seafood buffet is fairly unrewarding. But if you want a well run place to stay in a great location if you are in Hawaii on business the Prince is the place.

Room Tip: High floor for a better view.

Just spent three days at this lovely property. The room, on the 31st floor, was very nicely appointed, had great toiletries and a spectacular view of the marina and beyond. It is close to a beautiful park with its own beach--great for walking, running and sunbathing. The food at the restaurants, particularly the breakfast and lunch buffet, was wonderful. The hotel caters to Japanese tourists so the buffets had many Asian specialities. Everything was fresh, beautifully presented and delicious. You can also order a la carte .There was a "Grab and Go" cafe in the lobby.My husband and I loved the location of the hotel, because it is away from the frenzy of Waikiki beach but close enough to go there at will. The free hotel shuttle goes there frequently and thus is very convenient. The hotel was an excellent choice for our needs.

Room Tip: Beautiful views on the higher floors.

We spent one night on our way "out of the islands". A bit away from the crowds on waikiki, but still close enough to the beach and shopping. The room was overlooking the harbour (12th floor) and was quiet, but during the night the elevators were a bit noisy. If you want a quiet, discreet and comfortable hotel this could be your choice. No traffic noise to worry about and less than 30 min to the airport by cab (with no traffic) around 30 usd for the cab.

On the periphery of central Waikiki, this hotel has an exceptional, unobstructed ocean and yacht harbor view. It's no more than a 15 minute walk for us seniors to the heart of Waikiki and the hotel has free shuttles every half hour that stops in 3 spots on the "strip." The shuttle (with special kudos to weekday driver Dan) starts in the early afternoon and goes well into the evening. You can also walk easily to the Ala Moana shopping center or the Ala Wai ocean park in 10 minutes and there's a large grocery store a couple more minutes away.

The ocean/harborside rooms are on such a quiet street that there's no problem leaving windows open at night. And just to have opening windows is unusual and enjoyable. We set up a table and chairs by the window to create our own quasi balcony.

The rooms are very spacious with refrigerator, coffee maker, and safe. Like the common areas, they are in serious need of repainting. Dings and scuffs are numerous and detract from the basic quality of the hotel.

Very helpful and friendly front desk, although why they can't provide a decent area map is a mystery. There is an inexpensive ($10 per person vs. $32 for a cab) shuttle to the airport.

We never ate at any of the hotel's restaurants, but there are numerous ones in the vicinity, from fast food to somewhat upscale.

Internet (wireless) is fairly expensive with some reduction for a weekly rate. Hard-wired is $21 per hour at the business center. You can go to the coffee shop on Ala Moana kitty corner from the hotel (by McDonald's) and get free wifi with a nice breakfast.

Room Tip: Everything should have an exceptional view. Rooms that are higher in the two towers would have a ma...

Room was comfortable with a lovely view. On the down side, no cafe for breakfast and lunch. Beach shuttle doesn't start until 12:30 so quite a walk for breakfast. And the saddest thing; I left something valuable to me in the room, and the chambermaid did not turn it to the lost and found. Sob!

Room Tip: The higher the better.

This newer hotel (20+ years) situated on the entrance to Waikiki from the downtown financial center on Ala Moana Blvd. It is great for the business traveler since you can avoid all the traffic in/out of Waikiki. It's not on the beach but in walking distance to the beach but overlooks the Ala Wai Yaht Harbor. Also Ala Moana Shopping Center is about a half mile away. It is a hotel of choice for many business traveler, who relies on ground transportation from those who reside on Oahu. All rooms have a spectacular ocean view.

Room Tip: All rooms have an ocean view so don't worry about a good room.

Hubby and I just got back home from our mini vacation in honolulu..We stayed for 4 days and 3 nights at thehawaii prince hotel in waikiki.. We get there sunday morning at around 10:15 and the front desk said our room is not yet ready until 12 so we decided to just leave our baggage at the bell desk area. The hotel is just 8-10 minutes walk to ala Moana Shopping center and they have FREE shuttle that will take you to the other shops in waikiki and at the waikiki beach.. Shuttle runs every 10-20 minutes from 9:00 AM to 10:00 PM..If you like go hiking at diamond head,cruise etc. you can also talk to the approachable concierge & travel agents at the main lobby. For breakfast, most of the time we buy food at the marina front cafe for light breakfast like muffins,croissants,sandwiches,coffee, bento (scrambled eggs,bacon,sausage & rice or french toast) etc.. our room is located at 12th floor ala moana tower room 1214.. we get a nice ocean view room..well,ALL rooms here are ocean view so its really really great.. Our housekeeper for that time during our stay did a great job too..thank you for making our bed and room clean and fresh everyday.. definetly will come back again.. :)
