Very worth it. I wanted a quieter time and avoiding kids. I got it for the most part. The tower had light breakfast and snacks...

My husband and I enjoyed three nights at the Royal Hawaiian recently. We were greeted at arrival with the flower lei and the check-in service was super. The Mai Tai bar was fun. Beach was amazing. It was easy to grab a towel and find a spot on the sand. Beautiful gardens and lovely shops. I especially loved viewing all...

(my Dad had a suite, and the kids had a double queen - adjoining - but we could lock them out , yaaaay) Now this building is so beautiful, massively high ceilings, great place to stay. A Pearl...

It's a wonderful destination once you sort through the chaotic layout of the Royal Hawaiian Center and all the Sheraton properties. Seemed that everything was called the Royal Hawaiian kind of like peach tree street in Georgia. Built in the 1920's this hotel is full of history and they've done a great job maintaining the property to preserve its beauty....

We've stayed at the White Swan in Guanzhou, where president Nixon stayed in PRC. They have an attendant in the hallway to push the up or down button on the elevator for you. Except for having to suffer with pushing our own buttons, we found theplace quite delightful. Service was excellent. Drinking Mai Tais at the bar only steps from...
