This was our first time staying at the Royal Hawaiian. We have been to Honolulu several times before. She was a little hard to find (we had a rental car) as the last time we were in Honolulu she more or less be seen from the main drag. Now she is surrounded by high rise buildings. But that didn't stop...

We experienced outstanding service in your restaurant, coffee shop and bar. We enjoyed breakfasts, afternoon snacks by the beach, midday and late night cocktails and wonderful dinners in the restaurant. The service at all venues was exceptional. The housekeeping team equally outstanding, provided us with timely, efficient and excellent service. Why do you ask I only give 1 star? The...

We stayed in this hotel for 4 nights as part of an escoted tour, but arrived a day early. We arrived before check-in time so were content to wait but after an early morning start and a 6 hour flight we ended up waiting over an hour after check-in time and had to complain before we got our key.

The Royal Hawaiian is a nice place to splurge , with an excellent location at the edge of the main Waikiki area. It has a prime location on the widest part of the beach with the iconic Diamond Head view to the East and perfectly situated for sunsets to the West. The rooms are nice and large with classic furnishing...

Famous ols Pink Hotel . We stayed in the Alaini Tower rooms with a balcony overlooking Waikiki Beach. Lots of fun people watching as well as sightseeing just from our balcony. Rooms a little small, but quite adaquate. Nice amenities, and a Toto toilet with a "bottom wash" feature. I would stay here again. Great central location.

The Royal Hawaiian Hotel is a 90 year old gem that still sparkles. The "Pink Palace of the Pacific" is an oasis of grandeur on Waikiki's over-crowded and all too plastic beachfront. The original building features high ceilings and carved doors. The adjoining and much newer tower offers lofty ocean views. This resort truly belongs in the "Luxury Collection", and...

We have been to The Royal Hawaiian the last two times we have traveled to Oahu. It is an fabulous hotel. The service is top notch. Everyone is polite and so helpful. The location allows for 5 star dining and super shopping just steps away. You will not regret the time spent here!

This hotel is top notch in quality and service. I wouldn't say a regular traveller is getting value necessarily when a hotel is this expensive, but you won't be disappointed with a stay here. Very welcoming staff and excellent facilities. Mai Tai bar is also quite expensive but has great cocktails and food, with a great spot on Waikiki beach....

Been staying here for years with my family. Absolutely lovely. Beautiful surroundings, friendly staff, tasty food and classic decor. The rooms are pretty spacious. The outdoor activities are easy to arrange with the concierge. The communal dining parties, especially the Luau, are so much fun and there are a ton of other places to eat and drink just around the...
