Great Hotel for a reasonable price just seconds away from Waikiki Beach. Rooms rather small, but totally OK if you've ever been in NY hotel rooms.Modern, clean and cosy.Comfortable parking at the hotel next door. Fresh beach towels every day.Definitely our #1 choice for our next trip.

Older hotel, I was given a corner room with 2 balconies and nice ocean view obstructed in part by Hyatt towers. Room was rather small with a mini kitchenette. AC never got to the required temperature, my estimation the lowest you can get is 70 F. But room looked modern and in a good condition. The location is the best... More

We stayed in a one bedroom with a kitchenette on the top floor (12th) for our first visit to Hawaii. Whilst the hotel is dated, the room was clean. The kitchenette was very tiny, but it was adequate for our stay as we weren't planning on cooking everyday. The staff were very attentive and helpful. The concierge was helpful booking... More

Just back after a 10 night stay, my girlfriend and I enjoyed the hotel, the location was great, staff friendly. For what we expected, we got. I thought it was a very good 3 star plus hotel. A nice pool area, rooms serviced every day, air conditioning. Would go back.

Everything is just perfect - ly off-key. A room, reserved two months in advance, is not available. But after a dramatic pause, a receptionist offers you a suite instead.Possibly more luxurious - I’ll take their word for it. But instead of the promised ocean view you get a spectacular overlook of a service area. And most importantly, instead of the... More

Perfect location at the hart of Waikiki just 50m to the beach. We had a One Bedroom Suite with Full Kitchen. It was perfect for us. We could make our own breakfast before going out exploring Oahu.
