We are a family of five who stayed at Ohana Waikiki West for 8 nights over the New Year period. We had a "Kitchenette Combo" on the 10th floor. This room arrangement was fantastic for our family as we had one regular hotel room with king bed connecting to a kitchenette room that had two double beds. This gave us two bathrooms, two T.V.s, two balconies, lots of storage and of course the kitchenette. Yes, the rooms are dated and the bathrooms, in particular, are in need of renovation but housekeeping does their very best to keep them clean and tidy. Yes, three lifts are certainly not really enough to service a big hotel like that but the wait for one was never too long and, being on the 10th floor, we could take the stairs (especially going down!) if we were in a hurry. We were really pleased with the location and its a great base for Waikiki. We knew we were a couple of blocks back from the beach but, at this part of Waikiki, the blocks are quite short and so the walk to the beach was no long at all. Plus one way to get there was to cross the road from the hotel and walk through the International Market which is always interesting (so sad if they do demolish it). The pool area was good although the pool was very cold, not that it stopped our children from swimming in it! We were on a budget for eating so it was so convenient to have the Food Pantry grocery store just over the side street, Denny's directly over the road, Chillis in the hotel, Starbucks and Subway next to the hotel, one of the top-rated noodle bars just one block over and KFC & Burger King just one block over the other way. Complimentary rides on the Pink Trolley were included as part of our room rate which we used several times to get to and from Ala Moana shopping centre so that was a good savings for us. It was good to have free WiFi in the lobby and lets hope that, in their planned renovations, they install free WiFi in rooms too as all hotels should have these days. So, all in all, we had a good stay and I can recommend the Ohana Waikiki West.
