This was my first time staying Hotel Renew for a birthday staycation. They had a great rate for Hawaii residents and it was a perfect central location for all of my favorite restaurants and nightlife. We stopped by the bar before going out and Amanda made a great Mango Punch! Rachel and Kris were both extremely welcoming, and offered up...

Like other reviewers, I appreciate the friendly and helpful staff, such as Rachel, Sara, Grace & David. Rachel, you made my day! The operations seem very well-organised. The location is a real plus, at the far end of the Waikiki strip by the zoo. This makes it handy to escape from the crowded, boring commercial areas to such assets as...

Half a block from the beach and just enough away from the middle of the crazy busy part of the stip to be relaxing. The hotel has a number of nice free amenities: decent continental breakfast, beach chairs, mats and towels, aroma theapy for the room, free wi-fi, mini fridge and DVD rental. Very clean and contemporary rooms. I enjoyed...

Location great; close to Waikiki Beach/sunsets, small boutique hotel and at end of side street is the Honolulu Zoo with its beautiful canopy of trees and native vegetation. Upon arrival we were met by Rachel and Sarah with pineapple juice, cold cloths and scented room diffuser. After a long flight from Australia, they made the process of booking in easy...

We are repeat visitors, first coming about 6 years ago. This year, we were in Waikiki for over three weeks and split our visit between 3 hotels, just to have slightly different experiences without much effort. At Hotel Renew we always get an ocean view room and enjoy the pretty, but compact space. This year we saw the New Years...

The location of Hotel Renew is great -- on the quieter end of Waikiki. It is only a one block walk to the beach. The desk personnel, the valet and the housekeeper were very friendly. The rooms were nice. We requested an upper floor; we also got a corner room so it was more spacious and had two views --...

Our first and lasting impression of Hotel Renew was the friendly staff and the exceptional service we received of our week long stay in late Dec. This boutique hotel is located one block back from Waikiki Beach (Honolulu zoo end) in a quiet road for those who appreciate quality sleep without traffic noise. An ABC store is bearly 50 meters...

Very friendly and helpful staff, nicely decorated boutique-y room, comfortable room (on the small side but I am not a very big person, may be cramped if you are a larger sized individual), cable TV, WiFi, balcony (no view) nice breakfast offered.

This hotel does not deserve its rating. From very small bathrooms. No hot water for half my stay. Breakfast area can only hold 8 guests? Very outdated for the toom fee. This needs a overhaul and a new rating.
