This was our third time at the Royal Hawaiian in five years. We love the hotel and the gorgeous older-style rooms. They are spacious and very comfortable. This year we were given a slightly oversized room (two double beds) with a big wardrobe, which was great for storing our suitcases. While we still love the hotel, our experience this time... More

First and foremost, the pictures do not do this property justice. It is conveniently located on Waikiki Beach, and has a private beachfront along with some of the other hotels located in the same area. There are two restaurants, which overlook the ocean. I should note that one of the restaurants has two names, but if I recall correctly, it... More

The Royal Hawaiian Hotel gives you the best of both worlds, it's one of the oldest hotels in Hawai'i and the service is five star. You have the option of having breakfast in the restaurant or on Waikiki beach. The bars, the food and staff were all great. We will be back.

This is an iconic, historic, PINK hotel right on the Waikiki beach in Honolulu. *The lobby is open air, which seems to be the case in many Hawaiian hotels, and there is a lot of food traffic from people coming from the beach, making it lacking that exclusivity feeling *There seems to be only one front desk clerk at nights,...

So I'll start with the good--My husband and I stayed here for a work trip so we did not have to foot the bill, but the hotel itself is nothing too fancy for the prices charged.The hotel itself is beautiful and the beach is in a perfect location to the hotel. Our room was alright, the pillows were not the... More

We stayed in September 2016 in the Historical Rooms of this hotel. The room itself was nicely decorated and quite clean. Our room was available when we arrived and check-in was a breeze. We were greeted with flower leis and necklaces. The hotel staff was wonderful and always willing to help. The Historic Rooms are a little small, but we... More

I have been at this resort for 6 nights. There are no complaints except I didn't get a view and I hate I wasn't so lucky. (My job booked it) However, I almost walked out of the elevator and onto the beach each morning. The staff was friendly, even when I fell asleep on the lounge from the beautiful breeze.... More

One of the the most iconic hotels in the world and I wasn't disappointed. The perfect location and the staff were exceptional. I was disappointed that the bathroom was very tiny and there wasn't a mini bar or wine glasses. Overall I loved my Royal Hawiian Hotel experience.
