This hotel is close enough, yet a world apart from the noise of Waikiki. It is a fifteen or twenty minute walk tthrough a park. The premium ocean view room (be warned that the hotel is not on the water, so there are some high rises in part of your view) at night, with the balcony doors open is peaceful and calm. You can hear the ocean all night and birds in the morning, rather than tourists and traffic. Ride one of their complimentary bikes downtown, or just stroll to a peaceful restaurant on the beach. A great find.
