There's really nothing bad that I can say about this place. Staff, service, and hospitality is always a plus. I have stayed here more than a handful of times and I keep coming back because I enjoy how small the property is - Waikiki is already so crowded and it's nice to stay in a smaller hotel where there's less...

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

The Hotel Renew is a small hotel very close to Waikiki Beach. From the moment you enter the simple lobby you know that it is a quiet unassuming place. The staff are welcoming and extremely friendly and helpful at all times. If you like big glitzy places then this is not for you, but for us it was heaven. The...

We stayed here and opted for the rental car bundle. Just be aware, taxes for the rental car will run about $72. So, it's not totally free, but obviously a deal for the 8 days we stayed. We chose an ocean facing room with king size bed. The bed and pillows were great. We slept like babies. Not sure if...

Very friendly staff. Made to feel welcome on arrival. Nice room, clean, comfortable and good size. Great location near the beach, shops and transport. Breakfast offering was fine, fruit, muffins etc. The doorman was so nice, offering me his own umbrella after I left mine in the room!

We stayed at the Hotel Renew for our honeymoon. We had an excellent stay. They gave us complimentary Champaign and a room upgrade without our prompting. We received excellent customer service and loved the location right across the street from the beach! Short walk to the shops at Waikiki. Nice array of light food for breakfast and juices. We hope...

The hotel was quaint. For the price and location, it's well worth it. Our room smelled a little like mildew but wasn't terrible. Staff was friendly. Valet staff was busy but worked quickly. Breakfast wasn't the greatest. Overall would recommend

Hotels like this that try to milk you for every penny in the world while you're there doesn't make any sense to me. they have a resort fee which is very high. they offer nothing in return for the resort fee. but then they also charge you $32 for parking. insane. stay here only if you like being hustled.

Booked the Hotel Renew for the last part of our honeymoon, after deliberating for ages between that and another hotel for the same price (which had a pool). Despite a couple of unfair negative reviews I decided on the Renew, as it was closer to the beach and had breakfast included.  It's not often I book somewhere without either a...
