Even though we stayed at the Sheraton our conference was at the The Pink Palace, and it delivered superbly. The building itself is simply stunning. The architecture and the wooden doors and everything had a solid and sturdy and beautiful look. The meeting spaces were nice and the outdoor patio for our social events had a gorgeous view and a great vibe. Finally, the catering for all our events to the meeting breakfasts and the two dinners were scrumptious. I definitely gained weight during this conference because the food was just that good! Overall, an amazing space!

Classic place, no, it’s iconic. The heritage wing is nostalgic, the rooms don’t offer balconies and showing some age. The newer section offers brighter more upbeat accommodations with balconies and wraparound balconies in corner rooms. The best proximity in Waikiki.

Aloha Flyby0161, Thank you for choosing The Royal Hawaiian, a Luxury Collection Resort, Waikiki, and also for your generous review. We are glad you loved our timeless property on the island of Oahu and our exquisite accommodations with balconies. It is also a pleasure to know that our optimal location in the heart of Waikiki and just steps away from the beach and a wide range of adventures in the city of Honolulu worked well for you. However, we regret that you felt some of our rooms needed updating. We are grateful for the feedback, and we will share these notes with the appropriate individuals for future modernization plans for our hotel. We value your business and hope to have the opportunity to welcome you and your family again in the future. Mahalo, Ayaka H. The Royal Hawaiian, Guest Experience Team

The original pink hotel was not the first on Waikiki but is probably the most famous. We wandered through the hotel which is hidden from the main street by the mall but can be seen from the beach. The Sheraton Hotel on the east and the Outrigger on the west blocks the view from parts of the hotel. It is a peaceful garden on the west side that blocks off the noise of the city.
