we stayed here for 2 nights in early jan. I was quite surprised to notice an outdoor reception area .. we got an upgrade to a 1 bedroom panoramic unit on the 42nd floor. the view was to die for .. our bedroom lanai faced diamond head and though we were a few blocks from the ocean we still had a good view of waikiki beach.. since we were celebrating our anniversary we got a complimentary macadamia nut chocolate box from the hotel management, nice surprise !!! We had booked the snooze and cruise package which is a great deal if you are planning to drive around the island and not worry about parking in waikiki .. the lobby is a bit dated but the rooms are nicely renovated and clean .. we did not have air conditioning in the living room though .. All the rooms have been renovated with modern touches and I believe there are plans to upgrade the common areas soon .. we enjoyed our stay here, no complaints whatsoever ..
