Travelers' Choice
The Paniolo is a charming boutique Honolulu hotel located on Waikiki’s “Upper West Side” where you will find an abundance of restaurants, easy access to one of the world’s largest shopping malls, a quick stroll to the beach and gorgeous sunset views. This Honolulu Hotel is Waikiki’s only “North Shore connection,” as the ownership company also manages a magnificent 100-acre stretch of completely unspoiled beachfront property along O‘ahu’s North Shore. This is the home of the Hawai‘i Polo Club where polo matches, polo lessons and spectacular trail rides become available to hotel guests. We encourage our guests to make the beautiful drive to the hotel’s sister property on the North Shore for a day of riding, picnicking, swimming or beachcombing.

Everyone there is super friendly. Rory served me two nights down and the bar and can’t recommend getting served by him enough. Other than that the room was nice and clean and had cold air conditioning.

My Honolulu-to-Tahiti cruise was cancelled so I would not be in Honolulu on Sept 23. Paniolo was considerate enough to give me a refund on my reserved room. My thanks to the team of Jackie, Kaio and Renee.
