A nice little place on the upper (Honolulu Zoo) end of the Waikiki strip. Rooms are quite small, almost NYC small; nice furnishings with some rough edges in a hotel that is getting close to needing a bit of a refit. Still, very clean. Best thing about the place is the staff--amazingly friendly, from the front desk folks to the... More

We stayed at Renew for 4 nights and used it as our base for exploring Oahu. The hotel is great, located just at the end of Waikiki on the first block by the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful and there was always fresh coffe and cold water for the guests as well as snacks. The room was... More

We have been delighted with our 8 day stay here. The location is perfect - a 90 second stroll from the beach. Our room was very clean and comfortable and well-designed with everything right where you needed it. And the staff were lovely, so friendly and eager to go out of their way to help. We have stayed at a... More

We stayed at Hotel Renew and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We took the Speedi Shuttle from the airport and it took us 40 minutes get to the Hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted with some cold towels and pineapple juice. The weather during our trip was between 75-80 degrees, and sunny. Our room was spacious, good sized bed, TV, Play-station,...

We stayed at Hotel Renew for our honeymoon (late October - early November) and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We got the shared shuttle (Speedi Shuttle) with our booking and it took us 40 minutes to arrive at the Hotel after landing (due to the various stops at different hotels). Upon arrival we were greeted at reception and offered some cold... More

Very good service from all staff we interacted with during our 2 day stay. Room was very clean. Few comments - the breakfast was good, but would have preferred to have some items with less sugar, like one cereal choice that was not so sweet or some plain bread. Also at times during the night we had a loud drip... More

If you are looking for an ultra modern hotel that sits more within the city and not on top of the beach, this is the hotel for you. The beach is roughly 2 blocks away. We enjoyed our visit to this hotel. The rooms are very modern.

Location is great - one block from the beach and restaurants. And, the staff was great, too. The valet parking guys always had our car ready almost instantly - we never had to wait. The front desk staff made some really good hiking suggestions (check out Koko Head). And one night, we decided not to eat out and instead, bought... More
