We checked into the hotel and noticed immediately the security guard hiding his phone in his desk drawer and paying no attention to who was coming or going. Got to the room which was very dated for sure. The doors don't close too close to the bottom so you get random smells of other people coming in under your door.... More

Hotel is in a good location but won't be staying here again - unless there is a major renovations. See pictures. Hallways are stuffy, furniture needs upgrades, curtains looks like someone ate it, new rugs are needed, very very uncomfortable sofa bed - regular bed aren't much better.

Our two bedroom suite was mostly spacious except one bedroom which was much too small. Smallish bathroom as well. The elevators are old and service is not good. Prepare to wait. In fact two were out of service on one day of our trip. Friendly, accommodating staff and great location. Don't forget to check out the pool and on site... More

I have stayed here a few times now. This time I had a room on the 27th floor next to the elevator facing Waikiki. This room was larger than the other rooms I've stayed in, maybe because it's next to the elevator(which I never heard once),as in the other rooms it had a large kitchen with microwave and oven with...

This has been my second stay here while in Waikiki. I have always enjoyed my stay. It may not be the Hilton or Trump hotel, but the Aston Waikiki Sunset is a great hotel that has a full kitchen, excellent staff and housekeeping service.

This hotel was very interesting and it turned out that my whole family thought the same thing. It was a particularly tall hotel with many floors.

The Aston Sunset is just a block and a half from Waikiki Beach, which is far enough away to be off the beaten path of the big crowds.

Apparently the hotel has certain rooms that are owned by other companies, such as Suite 2001. As such, the hotel staff does not service those rooms nor assist the guests staying in those rooms. It's an odd arrangement. That said, we would consider staying in the building again. What we liked about suite 2001/ Aston Sunset: - The suite had... More
