This was our second visit to the Sheraton Waikiki, the first being some five years ago. It still manages to tick most of the boxes and as I said in the title if you choose the right side of this massive building it does offer the classic and IMO the best view of Waikiki beach(see photo).
Request a room with a high floor and the Diamond Head view and take my word for it every time you step out onto the balcony your spirits will soar. The hotel is perfectly placed for access to the main drag with all it's shops and restaurants. A choice of two swimming pool areas means that you should be able to obtain a sun bed at most times during the day. The infinity pool does get busy as the day progresses and the shadow cast by the hotel does shade the beds as time ticks by. The cabanas get the best view out to the ocean but at a price and they do tend to slightly spoil the view from the beds behind. Be sure to get down around this pool for sunset for some different photos. Top class eating options are limited but the large breakfast area works with a good buffet and Rum Fire a great place for a cocktail with a busy atmosphere especially at weekends.
There are classier hotels in Honolulu but the Sheraton does what is required of a good hotel in a great location. We hope to return in another five years and it will probably be back to the Sheraton.
