Nice location, only one hotel and street to cross to get to beach. A small nine floor hotel with mold and chipped paint in bathroom. Halls in need of painting and new carpet. Great staff, could not be more helpful. Nice amenities.

We had our destination wedding in Oahu in May 2016. The weather was hot without being disgusting. We stayed at the Sheraton Waikiki and it was right on the water and central walking distance to all shops and dining. We had so much fun in Waikiki beach and we can't wait to return.

The staff were the best bit about this hotel - they were smiling and helpful. Its location was also good being close to the beach and the main strip. However be aware that the rooms with balconies on the front of the hotel face the rear of another hotel and we were bothered a lot by the sound of glass... More

We booked this hotel for 5 nights and I must say everything was great! We booked a room on one of the higher floors. Great view, no balcony but this was not an issue. The staff was extremely helpful providing anything we requested. The room was very comfortable and quiet. We definitely recommend this hotel to others. We like the... More

Heading back to Honolulu after a 20 year absence meant readjusting to a new hotel as the only hotel I have ever stayed at was demolished as part of the International Market Place Upgrade (which whilst very modern has none of the atmosphere of the original and was a major disappointment). This trip was as a stop over en route... More

The hotel's location is great, but the AC in our room was woefully underpowered and couldn't keep the room cool on 30°C days. The lighting in the room was also very bad - no light in the entrance hall so you had to use your cell phone as a flashlight to see inside the closet & safe at night. The... More

As we opened the door to our hotel room, there was a lovely vanilla undertone of scents that filtrered through the room, as they provide complimentary scented oil sticks with a variety of scents if you wish. The room was very modern & clean. We were on the 9th floor, which is the highest floor of the building, with a... More

The front desk is helpful all the time, especially Sarah who took much effort to help me with an issue I had. We had a premier ocean view room but the view is not as wide as I expected. However, the room is clean and decent. What puzzles me is that the doorman was very friendly at first but became... More

The room decor was sleek and modern and the view from room 909 was spectacular. The heating/air conditioning was either all on or all off. There was no in-between. I was either sweating or freezing inside the room. The noise levels in our room were high due to the thin walls between rooms and into the hallway. Also there is... More

The hotel is small compared to others but that was a plus for us. The room was adequate size. Not much room around bathroom sink but had shelves and drawers to help store your personal items. Close to the beach and other items. Valet parking only but they were quick to get our car every time we needed it. Staff... More
