This was our first visit to Honolulu and we came for our Honeymoon. Upon arrival we were greeted warmly and with pleasant smiles. We returned to our room after dinner and noticed that our A/C was leaking. We called the front desk and immediately they (Chris) moved us to a different room just for the night. The next day we...

I've stayed in Waikiki for almost three weeks and only stayed at the hotel renew for three nights and it's been the best experience throughout. The bar and front desk staff are so helpful and great. Donna Marie was very helpful and made extraordinary drinks. All around great service and great time at the Hotel Renew!

We stayed at the hotel Renew on an extended stay during our transfer to Hawaii. The hotel itself was not to bad but the rooms are a little dark. The best part of our stay was the bar. Not very big but the drinks and service were awesome!!! Donna the bartender in particular was extremely pleasant and made a mean... More

I decided to book this hotel for my business trip to Hawaii. After figuring out where to put my car for the valet to get it (Just park in front by the door), it was a great experience. Everyone from the valet to the front desk was very nice, personable and knowledgeable about the area. If i had a request... More

From check-in to check-out, I felt comfortable, relaxed and at-home. The location at the southern end of Waikiki was easy to find and the brief walk up and down the beachfront to activities and shopping was a great way to start or end any outing. My room was a comfortable size, furnished well for either business or pleasure, with a... More

We are a family of 4 and stay 4 night in this hotel booking two rooms. We choose this hotel as it was described as a « Boutique » hotel. It is the case with number of rooms but not in terms of other aspects (only the reception is trendy) On the plus side : location and service (specially at... More

A small hotel, with character and friendly staff. We felt right at home. The hotel is close to the beach at the zoo end of Waikiki so away from most of the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. The rooms were larger than we expected, clean and comfortable. The only issue is that many rooms don't have balconies which is not... More

Absolutely adored this hotel for our honeymoon. From the moment we arrived, we had delightful service from the gentleman on the front desk who congratulated us and told us how he truly believed in marriage after his 35 years - congratulations to you too! :) we received some lovely little extras which was just so wonderful for making us feel...

We had a nice time at this hotel. It is very small, but the location is perfect for those people looking to be very close to Waikiki beach. It is also close to many great restaurants, bars and shops. Overall nice stay for a good price.

We had exactly 24 hours in Honolulu to break up the long journey from Sydney, Australia to Los Angeles. We spent half an hour in the taxi, but once we arrived at this small boutique hotel, we knew we had made a great decision on staying here. Our room wasn't ready, but we were welcome to wait in their tiny... More
