“Honolulu at its best”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 15, 2013

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of our Hawaiian holiday. Excellent location for the buzz of Waikikki, great access to the beach and shops. Fantastic room and views and loved its history. Particularly enjoyed the cocktail party and the jazz club.

Elegant, classy hotel. Room are nice, but nothing special (we had ocean view on 12th floor). Pool is lovely. No beach chairs. Breakfast included and very good. Restaurants a tad stuffy. Not sure we'd return. Bed was nowhere near quality of Four Seasons or a Westin.

This was a 3 night stay. The staff in every area of this lovely hotel were outstanding. Susan, the concierge was extremely helpful finding us a rental car and surfing lessons. We were forgotten during our meal at La Mer, and Steven, the manager of the restaurant, was apologetic and accommodating to the point that our meal for the next night was free. The rooms were well appointed, but I don't think the extra cost for the upgrade to ocean view was worth it. Mostly we saw the top of the restaurant. We ate all our meals on property including the breakfast buffet-the birds were a nuisance, however. Happy Hour on the lawn with the Hawaiian music was absolutely lovely. This is where we will stay for every trip to Oahu.

What an wonderful stay! I enjoyed every minute of it and really, almost opted to stay a few days more. The staff there was ready and welcoming when I arrived almost at midnight! They probably could tell I was tired and hungry because they immediately assisted with my bags and asked if the could assist me in getting something to eat. I appreciated that thought and immediate offer to accommodate me.

For the remainder of my stay, I was in complete relaxation because of the facilities, the location and especially the staff. They really are willing to do what you need and are so super friendly doing it. It was always nice to come back to my room to relax after a busy or just from sitting out on the sand. I liked that where I was staying was away from the fast pace of the tourists and everything in Honolulu.

I will most definitely stay here when I return this year!

Room Tip: Depends on what you want. My suite was on the lower level so that I could have a lanai and walk out...

We recently spend 3 days and 2 nights at the Halekulani Hotel in Honolulu and it was great. Excellent rooms, excellent ocean view...beach access and walking distance to other hotels and beaches. Their 5 Star Restaurant is World Class! Highly recommend for couples and special occasions. Best breakfast restaurant in the World...what a view and setting! Hotel is walking distance to 6 other restaurants that are very good. Great location in downtown Honolulu.

Room Tip: Request Full Ocean View Rooms...all the rooms have a partial view.

Booked a last minute holiday to hawaii for 5nights. Booked 2 garden view king rooms and got upgraded to a partial ocean view rooms. Rooms simple, elagant and clean. Complimentary water and turn down service every night with a little surprise. Service lovely nothing is too much trouble. Booked our car and activities with concierge daily - very helpful. Great Breakfast. Location you dont get better than Halekulani! Fourth time to hawaii - first time at halekulani - i will be back to stay here.

Room Tip: Partial ocean view is great if you want to save alittle!

Our two night stay at the Halekulani Hotel can be summed up in one word: perfection. This hotel has the highest level of service of anywhere I have ever stayed. We arrived early in the morning on an overnight flight, and they had our room ready for us when we arrived. The check-in process is the most humane and pleasant I have ever experienced. The room was delightful, the view of the ocean amazing, and the fruit and chocolate arrival gift wonderful. We had dinner at House Without a Key, watched the sun set and drank a Mai Tai while a group played Hawaiian music. The location is ideal, the pool is beautiful, the food excellent.

True, perfection doesn't come cheap, but I can't wait to pay for it again.
