We were disappointed during our 3 day stay. The hotel is living off its reputation of old.We should have realized things had changed when we saw the receptionists dressed in sterile office garb. Where's the aloha spirit? Room was medium-sized, average appointment, light on communication and electronic connections, missing curtains for privacy (looks right on to other balconies). The shower knobs are too high-tech, we miss the simplicity of the good ole off and on knob. However, there are lots of little pluses, like shoe buffers and lots of hangers and cosmetic goodies. No ironing board. I guess the bottom line is that it's overpriced because of its location. At $32 a person for the breakfast buffet, we were surprised that the selections were not larger.
