“Awesome!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 8, 2012

We are locals and like to stay in Waikiki for the weekend sometimes. This is always our hotel of choice. Its location is convenient and safe.

The renovation of the hotel is awesome! The renovated rooms are really nice and modern, and for the price, it's a REALLY great deal! I would recommend booking as soon as you are sure of your travel plans. We've had to go elsewhere a few times because of unavailability, and were very disappointed.

The new renovation of the hotel is incredible. Whenever I stay in Hawaii the Skyline is a must. Staff is incredible. Shows us the true Aloha Spirit.

My only complaint is....hotel is so nice and convenient....rooms are getting booked. I just checked out today and had to move to another hotel because the word is getting out. Sold out....bummer...wish I was still there.

I was tempted to give a bad rating just to make sure they have room for me every trip....but I can't...I love the hotel too much

our stay in Hawaii was for about 2 weeks and we couldn't have stayed in a better hotel. we paid for newly renovated room and it was great. very clean and nice view. this hotel is right in the middle of everything walking distance from food places to shopping the beach is even in walking distance. this hotel contains many amenities such as its own laundry area a pool and a little store. everyone is so friendly and always willing to help. I recommend this hotel it was cheap for a nice room. the only problem is if you want to rent a car and park there the parking is 25 dollars a day.

My family and I didn't know what to expect since the price was very reasonable. We were pleasantly surprised with the updated look & feel of the rooms - everything was pretty much new. This building consists of homeowners and the hotel, there is a pool, sauna and hot tub on site, the staff was very helpful and friendly. The location was great - just far enough from all the Waikiki shopping madness. The shopping and beach is within walking distance. There is free parking if you search in the area or you can pay $25 a night. It was a great place to relax.

Room Tip: Room 3401 had an amazing view!

We stayed in the 1 bedroom suite on the 24th floor. Newly remodeled it was nice. Great lanai and nice pool area. Would have liked a higher floor the view would have been better but really do appreciate what I had. Mahalo

Room Tip: Pay the extra money for the renovated rooms well worth it!!
