Spent 10 days at the Moana as we loved the look of the hotel last time we were in Hawaii and promised ourselves we'd stay there next time. The building is magnificent, a great feel to it and the outside area under the huge fig tree is just wonderful. Such a large space with many different areas within the area...

This is a beautiful restored old hotel in the heart of Waikiki. Our room was overall rather small, but high ceilings and gracious furnishings made it pleasant. The bathroom had a nice rainfall shower. We are SPG members, and found the SPG lounge to be a great asset - enjoyed an excellent breakfast buffet there, as well as beer/wine with...

We went for some cocktails and appy's at the westin surfrider in Waikiki. It was actually very sad as the food which was not inexpensive did not match what we paid for. The nacho's had the 7/11 cheese on them and were maybe the worst we have ever had. The rest of the meal was not memorable. The service was...

This is a beautifully maintained (and remodeled) historical building. Some rooms in the old section retained its charm. It's on the beach and you can easily get to their surf lessons. I could see my kids playing on beach from my room. I recommend booking a club access room if you're bringing a family. It's so convenient to have breakfast...

Our stay at the Moana Surfrider was nice, and about what you could expect for a city hotel -- very hectic and busy. Waikiki is like Vegas - a zoo like atmosphere - so if you are looking to relax, this is not the place. On the plus side, the lobby is gorgeous, and the hotel is right on the...
