This hotel was not our first choice, as we preferred to stay in a more upscale and larger beach-front resort. However, visiting Hawaii during Christmas week made our options extremely limited, even though we booked our trip in September. The nicer resort hotels were either sold out, or the rooms started at $500/night. Although the location isn't ideal, it was still very good. It's a 5-minute walk to the beach and about a 10-minute walk to the central Waikiki shopping district. Lots of good restaurants within a 10-minute walk. It's one block from the Hilton Hawaiian Village, which is a large beach-front resort with a big collection of nice shops and restaurants. We had a city/mountain view room and paid about $200/night. Our view consisted of more city than mountains, but being from Florida, we were more interested in seeing the mountains than the beach. The staff was extremely friendly, and the hotel was very clean and well-kept. The pool was very basic, and not one where you would want to spend your Hawaiian vacation. The food at the on-site restaurant was excellent. If you want a hotel with a lot of resort-type amenities (beach, lagoon-style pool, multiple restaurants on-site, etc.), you will want to stay somewhere else (and pay considerably more). However, if you plan to spend most of your time exploring Oahu and just want a nice place to spend the night, this hotel is a great option.
