I can’t believe the Imperial doesn’t get more love. I mean, it’s in a fabulous location, smack dab behind the luxurious Halekulani and only 1 short walk from the beach. It’s in the heart of Beach Walk which makes the location convenient for dining.
We’d walk around the Outrigger Reef between the Army museum and be on the beach in less than 5 minutes, and the beach in front of Ft. DeRussy is wide and less crowded.
The condo units are nothing fancy. I’ve rented various condos in various buildings over the years in Waikiki, and they all have been very similar, typically small and built in the 60’s or 70’s. Nothing different here. The Imperial is extremely clean and the kitchens are small but functional. You only get maid service once halfway through your stay, which is fine with us. Towels, including beach/pool towels are provided and you can swap your towels out with housekeeping for fresh ones every day if you want. Our trash was emptied quite a few times. There are laundry facilities on the 2nd floor and a fabulous owners’ lounge on the 26th floor. The view from the big balcony on the 26th floor is breathtaking – also a great spot to watch the Friday night fireworks.
There are two rather new hot tubs on the 3rd floor as well as a small fitness center with cardio equipment, weights and mats. One could easily get a decent workout in while staying here.
Off the lobby downstairs you’ll find an ABC store as well as a Denny’s, great for 1 a.m. rolling-in-from-the-beach-bar-munchies.
Parking is $25/day (OUCH) or $100/wk for owners. WiFi is $15 per week.
