We had a wonderful time at Naniloa Hilo. The room was clean and luxurious. Within a few minutes walk we saw Sea Turtles in the wild. Located close to the airport, shopping, eateries and attractions. I recommend this Hotel to all and can't wait to go back.

It is a beautiful new Hilton property; however, the true quality of this property is the people. Wendy (in accounts), Nicole Stallard (at the desk), Liza (dining) were all superb and took care of any and all questions and concerns. This hotel is a newly acquired property that is going through massive renovation, so the staff is tasked to their...

The Front Desk staff were very personable and friendly. The location of the hotel is great and offers wonderful views. Our room, 1210, had a great view and was small with no storage other than 3 drawers in the desk and a small closet. Beds are so comfy! The bathroom sink outlet and the one near the coffeepot were not...

For just being opened for a short time, this hotel to me is the best in Hilo. Upscale but not costing a fortune. Pleasantly surprised. Parking can be a bit of a challenge but they are utilizing and empty lot across the street so they are aware of this. Good Locaton.

Location is everything. This historic hotel has its own bay front with fascinating tide pools. Can rent kayaks, paddle boards, snorkeling. Walking distance to restaurants, Japanese Garden, parks, golf (across the street). Live Valentine's Day Hawaiian band. Great sitting areas with breathtaking views of Hilo Bay and the ocean beyond. Very old hotel but excellent service.

We wanted to stay in Hilo due to its proximity to Volcanoes National Park. When we initially searched for hotels in Hilo they all seemed to be way below our standards. Luckily, we found out that the Grand Naniloa was newly renovated. We stayed in an Ocean Front Junior Suite. The suite came equipped with a microwave, a refrigerator and...

Staff are super. Hotel is very clean. Bed and pillows are amongst the best you'll experience, and room is cleaned every day. Air con is top notch, albeit a little on the noisy side. Walls are quite thin, especially on conjoining rooms - there's gaps in the door and you can hear next door using their loo! Pool is small...

I had an great oceanfront view from my room and balcony. I saw the cruise ship go in and out of the harbor. My room was clean and quiet. I thought the price was great and included breakfast. The breakfast was okay but not fabulous, lots of tropical fresh fruit. There were only scrambled eggs and the pastries looked like...

My wife and I stayed on the Big Island of Hawaii in February 2017, being Hilton Honors members looked for a Hilton branded property and came across the Grand Naniloa. This hotel is under a huge renovation, but our guest rooms were clean, comfortable and had a great view of the Hilo Bay. The bed was very comfortable, along with...
