We recommend the Laylow to anyone that comes to Waikiki. The rooms are adorable and affordable. It’s just a few minutes walk to Waikiki beach. The staff is so sweet. The property also provides beach cruisers and beach chairs for guests. The restaurant is delicious and we had the best servers. Chris was amazing and provided great and fast service so we could catch our flight home. The music at the Laylow restaurant is also amazing and if you can’t stay here we recommend coming just for a drink and to enjoy the music.

This is such a beautiful hotel in the heart of Waikiki. I stayed five nights with my family and had the BEST experience. There are daily kid friendly activities, such as ukulele lessons and lei making. The rooms are very clean and the staff is friendly. We especially love the food and service at the Hideout. Chris gave amazing service and was so sweet and attentive to my kids. Whenever we can make it to Honolulu again, we will stay at the Laylow for sure.

Kapolei, Hawaii4 contributions
I had been eagerly anticipating my birthday celebration at Hideout at The Laylow Waikiki, but sadly, it turned out to be a major letdown. We had made reservations well in advance for a busy Saturday night (my birthday), and after an expensive cab ride across the island, we arrived in high spirits, dressed for the occasion. However, upon reaching the front desk, we were hit by the news that our table was no longer available due to rain. It was disheartening to be told at the door that we 'no longer had a reservation,' especially since I've never experienced this with a pre booked reservation anywhere else before. What made matters worse was the lack of proactive communication earlier in the day to warn us about the possibility of losing our reservation due to inclement weather. We were simply put on a waitlist for an inside table, with an estimated wait time of over an hour. Stranded without any immediate alternatives and unable to navigate the rainy weather in our attire, we reluctantly sought refuge at a cheap and empty nearby bar, trying to salvage the evening in our nice outfits. Finally, after what felt like an eternity, we were seated outside with only umbrellas and towels provided as a makeshift solution. It was only after some time that we were relocated to a slightly more sheltered area, but by then, the damage had been done. While the staff were friendly and the drinks were decent, the lack of compensation or proactive solutions to our inconvenience was disappointing. As a local, I feel compelled to caution others, especially those planning special occasions, about the lack of contingency plans for rainy weather on busy nights. I'd advise against setting high expectations, especially if rain is in the forecast.

We chose The Laylow as our hotel for an 11 day stay in Waikiki celebrating our daughter’s wedding. It was a great choice. The hotel is well situated for enjoying Waikiki restaurants and shopping. The small pool is great and we had no problem finding a lounger. The food at The Hideout was fabulous and the service was exceptional. Nori , our 10th Floor housemaid was always cheerful and very attentive. We would definitely stay at The Laylow again.

It’s our second time here and we love it! From the welcome basket to the shave ice everyday to the lovely service, we can’t complain. Everyone who works there is all smiles and so nice! That’s why we came back. Special shout out to Nori who kept our room tidy and clean each day. She was so sweet to talk to also and provided great customer service!

Absolutely loved the location! We are foodies and all the places we wanted to eat at were walking distance. ABC store is right next door! There’s no beach access but we didn’t mind the walk to the beach. Used the coffee bar at the hotel almost daily. The hospitality at the hotel is amazing! Shave ice at 1pm! It was so good! Hideout bar mai Tais were tasty. About $18 a drink. I felt good after one drink haha Can’t say anything about the pool bc we didn’t use it but it did look small. But the beach is where to be! Hope you love your stay as much as I did!

Great hotel. We are a family of four with two teenagers. Our room had a king bed, a queen day bed, and a twin day bed. It was a perfect layout for us. Everyone had their own space and we didn’t feel like we were on top of one another. The location is fantastic; it’s right in the heart of everything. The staff was really nice. The extra activities were great. We loved making leis. The restaurant/ bar was really nice. I really loved the fire pit/ sand area. It was a good place to grab a cocktail before heading out to dinner. We did eat dinner and breakfast there, and both were very good.

We had the greatest time at the Laylow! Checkin was a breeze with Jace. Daive took care of us for breakfast each morning. Delicious food and a beautiful restaurant! My husband and I went to the bar on Friday. Fabulous cocktails! Loved my Mai Tai. There is live music each night. The kids loved the complimentary shaved ice at 1pm near the pool. When the front desk (Shelia) found out we were traveling with our 80 something year old mom, she extended our check out so we could relax and not rush out. This is an amazing, very well run hotel. Highly recommend when visiting the area. Mahalo LayLow! - The Holts!

Quiet, relaxing and peaceful. Also fun evenings with great live music! Incredibly attentive service from servers like Christie and Christopher at the restaurant and Jeremy and Taylor at the bar made our family feel right at home! I’d recommend this to anyone wanting to skip the throngs roaming the Waikiki strip yet being just a short walk from the beaches, restaurants and stores.

Awesome place to stay. Staff was amazing. Christie at the restaurant was super friendly and helpful. They were very accommodating with our check in and out. We are hotel snobs and look at the details. Place was super clean. It is next to international marketplace and a quick walk to the beach. I would prefer to stay here than at the beach hotels. 0 complaints and would definitely stay here again.
