In a long life of travelling the world it has been my good fortune to stay and visit at some of the best hotels on the planet. Journalism has its rare pleasures!!! At many 5-star badged resorts, there is a sensory overload. Acres of inch-deep carpet, a galaxy of crystal chandeliers, miles of marble and those always annoyingly servile, nattily-clad... More

I was greeted at the entrance with a shell lei and my husband had a wooden bead one. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The hotel is right on the beachfront and a very beautiful hotel in a garden setting. I stayed in one of the Historic Rooms which was up a few steps on the first floor and... More

We had two amazing nights in this hotel. Staff was first class and we found it a quiet, luxurious oasis in the middle of a bustling and fun city. To be fair, we were upgraded to a great suite with access to drinks every evening - I'm sure that made our experience that much better. But the building was amazing... More

Although I have reported this to bar staff ... Virtually, nothing has been done other than a statement saying We will report... More

I stayed in this glorious hotel for two nights before God no to visit family at the North Shore. You an tell it is a special place the minute you see the building, which is bathed in pink. The hotel has been around since the early 20s, and it is rich in history. I stayed in the historic section, and... More

I can’t tell you how much I looked forward to our four nights at the Royal Hawaiiian. After one week in Maui at the Westin Ka’anapali Villas North and one week in Kauai at the Westin Princeville, we culminated our Hawaiian vacation with a few nights in Oahu before heading home. As Starwood vacation owners, we were treated like royalty... More

Had high hopes for my stay of several days at the Royal Hawaiian. But ended up more than a bit disappointed. Waited a couple weeks to see if it was just me but I've decided that the hotel really did let me down in areas so I'm submitting this review. The Pros: Beautiful lobby and grounds. Great location.

Stayed at the RH with family (13,15) for 6 days in August 2016. This is the BEST hotel in WAikiki by far!!!! The location, beach, food, service, staff was amazing. First thing to note is that rooms are just ok. (We stayed at the four seasons in maui and those rooms were spectacular.) But everything else was amazing!!!!!!! First, you... More

I thought I was going to find an old, tired hotel. Instead, this gran dame of a hotel delivers a terrific tropical experience, with a great outdoor lobby, excellent breakfast views and amazing beach. It is definitely worth a stay, especially given it's proximity to the major shopping district and the rest of Diamond Head beach. Lack of a pool... More

Tip: If you book an ocean view room, you get a private patio near to pool to eat, have coffee and just kick it. From the moment you get to the driveway and greeted Aloha by friendly staff with leis on hand to the check-in process and the hotel room itself. Upscale island feeling. Wonderful hotel room. Garden views are... More
