I have stayed at the Imperial since 1995. Just recently in June it is undergoing renovations which was not inconvenient except the pool area reopened the day we left on 29th June. It is looking very nice if you like to swim in the pool. We always swim at the beach which is right there. The office and lifts were... More

My wife and I have stayed here twice using RCI exchanges. Overall we really like the place. Had a one bedroom unit on the 25th floor this time and loved the view. Convenient to Waikiki beach. As others have noted there's a lot of renovations taking place; the renovations were much needed. It does create some noise and inconvenience. But... More

While this place is under renovations and the lifts took forever, I'm sure that once they have completed the reno the lifts will be much faster!! We went to the 'owners lounge' to watch the fireworks for 4th July which was amazing!! Our room was tidy and clean, the staff were friendly and helpful....would definitely stay again!!

They are in the process of much needed updates for this hotel. There were a few projects happening while we were staying here. The lobby was being redone and check in was on the second floor, one of three elevators was shut down which caused long waits for an elevator and sometimes they were very full, they were replacing fire...

There is currently construction going on in the lobby, signs direct guests to second floor for check-in. Staff is very friendly. I was on placed on the third floor with only a view of the adjoining hotels and mechanical areas, but was given a huge patio. The room was large, made larger by the fact that the room had a... More

The lobby is under renovation so the place is a mess for checking in and coming and going in and out of the property. That is compounded by the construction noise and worse the elevators, which are not all functional. Average wait time for an elevator was 6-9 minutes, with no air conditioning in the make-shift lobby areas. I never... More

When I reserved this with Interval as an exchange, I wasn't too happy about it. It looked old, and it is, but it was in an okay location, and best of all I could reserve Monday to Monday. We were going to the Pro Bowl so a Monday was perfect (had to find). The parking is all valet so there... More

Room provides the basic needs which is great if you want a place to put your head and stow your bags, but dont rely on the amenities 'provided' no responsibility is taken for them, so take pot luck with using them.

When you get a bargain like this just a block from Waikiki beach you can forgive a few rough edges. The hotel is old, but well maintained. Pool was out of action when we were there which was a bit of a bummer. Check in was smooth, Eric was extremely helpful and held our bags until the room was ready.... More
