First, let me say, I love me HGVC membership. Without it I wouldn't be able to visit some of the places I've been and enjoy a vacation every year. That being said, to say I'm a planner would be an understatement. I plan ahead - way ahead. Therefore I made my reservation at the Grand Waikikian 9 months in advance... More

My wife and I elected to take a mental health break and stay in a hotel on Waikiki in spite of the fact that we live less than 20 miles away. We are faithful Hilton customers and elected to try one of the brand's Grand Vacations properties with great expectations. I'm sorry to say that they missed the mark. When... More

If you're looking for a condo with resort facilities, a great pool and easy access to Waikiki restaurants and Ala Moana - stay here! One bedroom, partial ocean view for a family of 2 adults and 2 kids (10 & 13) was ample - adults slept on a very comfy sofa bed - as good as a real bed and... More

Nice room. Poor staff and amenities, The hotel is located very near the beach with access to several pools. Get to the pool early if you want a chair. Shopping is close. The stores are mostly High End.

This makes for my third visit to the property. The Hilton property has a big footprint in Waikiki. Try to get a room with a full ocean view. Nothing better than enjoying your morning coffee while watching the waves crash.

We had a weeks family holiday at the Grand Waikikian Vacation Club, staying in a two bedroom apartment. The apartment was large, well appointed and spotlessly clean. The same could be said for the public areas. It was very comfortable, good, free wi-fi and located at the beginning of Waikiki Beach and a150 metre walk to the beach; no roads... More

Very disappointed - there was absolutely no view of the ocean from my "Partial Ocean View" room, just the ugly blue building across the street. Manager was kind enough to explain that when the building was initially constructed, there was a partial ocean view -- not the case when I had already prepaid for my room. Thankfully, I only booked... More

We had a lovely time at the Hilton Grand Waikikian. Our evenings on the beach were magical. Our nighttime swim in the shallow, gentle Waikiki surf by the hotel is one of my favorite memories. The catamaran sunset cruise was romantic and so much fun. One evening at a bar there by the beach, the band was playing John Lennon's... More

This is a great place for a family vacation. Great staff and comfortable rooms. We were able to enjoy the beach and pool. In our suite we had a washing machine and dryer. That was very helpful. There was plenty of room for the family.
