This was a very average hotel in a great location. The rooms were a little outdated. The best thing about the room was the large flat screen TV and free internet access. We requested a double bed room and at check-in they only had rooms with queen beds available, however they were able to accomodate us the following night with...

Wonderful manager who greeted us with the Hawaiian welcoming spirit of the islands. The hotel was in a perfect location, convenient to the Hilton Hawaiian Village, excellent places to eat breakfast, and easy when you have a rental car. Loved the complimentary coffee as well! Nice touch.

The Aqua Palms and Spa was perfect for what we needed. Convinient and close to the Hilton w/o the Hilton price, clean and a great location for access to Ala Moana and shopping and a fantastic price. Great for walking to night spots or even catching a cab if you want to drink and not worry about driving. The staff...

For most people who aren't looking to spend an arm and a leg but still want a great location, this hotel was great. The staff are friendly, it's right across the street from the Hilton Hawaiian Village (which is right on the ocean), and you can walk to both Ala Moana Shopping Center and the big strip of resorts/bars/shops along...

We stayed here for 5 nights recently. A friend of ours was getting married in HI. To be fair, the pros are: 1. Location - very convenient. if you take the shuttle from airport, you will get here must faster than other hotels, which is awesome if you fly in from the east coast, it's also walking distance from the...

Pros: 1. Very clean and nicely appointed rooms. 2. We took the Junior Suite with the view of the Diamond Head and it was located at the topmost floor. The room was spacious and with very nice pieces of furtinure. 3. The tolieteries kit was of high quality. 4. The view from the hotel was nice with a beautiful sunrise...

I have stayed at many hotels on the island and I have to say that the Aqua Palms & Spa and its staff has made me feel like a million bucks. Most of the reviews I read must have been from years ago because the elevators are NOT slow and the rooms are newly remodeled and very comfortable. I could...

We booked this place because it's away from Wakiki. They claim they're in Wakiki but it's a bit of a walk. The room was VERY small and the floor uneven. We put a can on the floor and it rolled down the room. The hallways were also sloped. It looks like the place was remodeled on the cheap. There is...
