We were going to Hawaii for the first time. Hotel prices were pricey. The Imperial Hawaii Resort has the most reasonable rate for the area where it is located. Waikiki beach, all the shopping malls, tour pick up points, Kuhio beach are all within walking distance. There is an ABC store adjacent to the entrance for takeaway food. There are various restaurants for eating options near the hotel. The room is not large. The bed is a pull down. There is a small kitchen. A resort fee is charge, so better use the hot tub or gym. We would book here again given the chance.

We have 5 different suite types that range from a one-room studio with that pull-down Murphy bed up to a large 2 bedroom, 2 bath suite with a full kitchen. There are many options! We would love for you to come and stay with us again. Mahalo for taking the time to leave a review.

2br, 2 bth with full kitchen staycation through RCI at the Imperial Hawaii Resort was AMAZING! Excellent location. The hotel was quiet due to the Covid 19 pandemic, which was perfect for us. The pool, owners' lounge and jacuzzi were nearly empty every time we used it. ABC store downstairs and Yard House across the street; very convenient. Waikiki Beach is empty now, but none the less just as beautiful! Easy 3 min. walk to beach. Mahalo nui loa to Richard, Michelle, Derek, Eric, Keloa, Nikki and all the welcoming staff at Imperial! Everyone was very helpful and full of aloha.

This review regards a stay in July 2020. My wife and I are locals and we decided we needed a change of scenery for a few days during the pandemic. Our suite was the smallest in the resort, a studio. There was plenty of room for two people, but it could accommodate four given that it has a murphy bed and a sofa bed. The murphy bed was very easy to deploy and stow, a light touch was all that was needed. Once the bed is stowed, the studio has plenty of room. The kitchenette had a sink, refrigerator, microwave and full-size coffee pot. The bathroom is small, but clean. This is clearly an older hotel, but it is well-kept. The room's A/C worked well through-out our stay and it also had a ceiling fan if you prefer "Hawaiian Air-conditioning". Our room was on a high floor, so it had a splendid view of the ocean to the west. The hotel is in the heart of things in Waikiki, which is very convenient for dining and shopping, but it is also just a stone's throw from the beach (about a 2 minute walk), which is a huge plus for a mid-priced hotel these days. We didn't use the roof-top pool since the ocean was close! The ABC store located in the building has a lot of take-out dining choices, including a full-service deli and there is a Denny's in the hotel lobby, too. The staff were just a pleasure at every turn and made us really feel at home.

Had a wonderful time staying here. Wonderful staff and in a great location, close to many restaurants and just a block away from the beach. Rooms very clean and spacious. Highly recommend the Palm Suite, it easily has plenty of room for 3-4 people.

The Imperial's location is the best feature. Many newer resorts have more to offer. But as timeshare trades go, this place was fine. We could walk to all the Waikiki spots. March had plenty of tropical rain and thunderstorms. Staff was polite and helpful. (our stay coincided with the beginning of the pandemic) My only complaint would be the $20- a day parking. We skipped parking by doing daily car rentals (Hertz is on site) every other day. The Bus was convenient as long as weather cooperated.
