I would discourage anyone from staying here: paper thin walls, decor from the 50's or 60's, room so humid my makeup brush became wet overnight and my morning pill disintegrated. We likened this hotel to some of our mid-range hotel stays in India. The bed was lumpy and uncomfortable. The lone bright spot was the staff. They were wonderful, even... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 18, 2016

I stayed here while waiting for relatives to arrive, making a late reservation via Expedia. During this stay, I decided to stay an extra night instead of choosing a new hotel. The staff was very friendly and cordial, seemingly anticipating my every need. They offered great suggestions on where to go and what to do along with places to avoid... More

This was about the 3rd time I stayed here. For me you can't beat the location, it is within 10 minutes to the airport, Soho, the international mall and so much more. The staff is very friendly and for the 1st time I ate in the cafe, which was also good. For these reasons I have come back. I may... More

I have been to the Tahitian now on two separate occasions and cannot understand for the life of me why they are only rated 3 stars. Have had nothing but an amazing experience both times I have stayed. On my first stay I didn't want to leave and kept extending my stay until before you know it I had been... More

My friends and I have been coming to this hotel for years. It's a great place to stay. It's been around since 1952 and the same family runs it. I enjoy the pool and the fact it's open to the public. It makes for a lively time around the pool and pool bar. I agree with the previous reviewer, the... More

The room was equipped with a frig, coffeemaker and microwave. The housekeeping staff, that I met were very hospitable and helpful.
