This hotel was super cute! It's close by everything! We had one of the suites and the room was really big and spacious with a kitchen. There's also a really cute coffee bar downstairs in the lobby outdoor area with great coffee and light food for breakfast!

"I highly recommend the 10th floor."
"We were on 10th floor which was very good."
"A room where the road noise is minimized would be preferable!"
"Rooms on the Mauka side are quieter and the Executive rooms are on the 10th floor."
"Ask for a room away from the street for less street noise. Didn't have issues with noise from other rooms."
