Me and my then bf now fiance stayed at the Halekulani. We got the 15th floor diamond head suite and it was a weekend to remember. It's easy to park because they have valet. Check in was a breeze. There was no line and the room was the best part. A complete unobstructed view of Diamond head and Waikiki beach where he had proposed privately during sunset on the balcony :) Hotel staff stopped by at night for turn down service and gave a little "gift". The room had all the essential toiletries you could need. Breakfast buffet at House without a Key was delicious but remember no gym or beach attire. We ordered room service one night and it came up fast. Food was good and portion size was more than enough. The coconut cake is a MUST TRY! I can't wait to come back. Maybe even have my wedding there too!

Really enjoyed our stay here. It’s a quiet refined hotel with very nice updated rooms, great food, and a peaceful vibe. The pool was beautiful and the pool staff were all fabulous. Service was generally very professional throughout our stay with the unfortunate exception of Lewers Lounge where the hostess and servers were abrupt, inefficient, and lacking the finesse of other employees we encountered.

This beautiful and well located hotel was everything I hoped it would be. The room was immaculate and included a sweeping view of Diamond Head and Waikiki beach. We dined at the restaurants on location and enjoyed both the food and cocktails at Orchids and House Without a Key. Service was impeccably provided at all times. The small Jazz Bar “Lewers Lounge” was also a fun end-of-the-night destination.

The new decor is so lovely and tranquil. The staff is the most courteous and the food was outstanding. Love the pool and the pool staff. They work hard and do a great job. I especially love the open-air lobby and the garden in the middle of the property. It provides the calm amidst the Waikiki crowds.

We came to Halekulani to celebrate my boyfriend's 29th birthday. The staff at the hotel were friendly and made us feel so welcome. Every time we left the room, we returned to small gifts that really added a personal touch to our experience. It's the perfect setting for a romantic getaway to escape the crowds on Waikiki Beach. Tip: Make a reservation for Sunday Brunch at Orchids, the food was amazing and you get to soak it in with ocean front views!!

I searched for the perfect place for my mini-getaway to Waikiki and landed on the Halekulani. I made the perfect choice as this hotel exceeded my expectations in many ways. The property is an oasis of tranquility in the middle of the Waikiki tourist jungle. Service was flawless. Loved the pool - water temperature is perfect and the chairs are ultra comfortable. Cocktails at the bar are super delicious. The room was so very comfortable with a great bed and wonderful pillows. I could go on and on. This was a worthy splurge and blows away the other hotels in the area.

As former part time residents we had not been back to Honolulu in 8 years. The ONLY truly 5 star hotel in Waikiki. Every interaction with wait staff, front desk, valets, housekeeping was absolutely perfect. If you appreciate old school service with beautiful manners and linen tableclothes this is your place. The tranquility and beauty in the middle of Waikiki is a rarity. So happy some things never change.

We just spent a long weekend celebrating our anniversary at the Halekulani and have nothing but great things to say about the hotel. The hotel is a calming oasis in the middle of the craziness of Waikiki. While we love Waikiki, it's so nice to return to the peacefulness of the Halekulani. What really sets it apart is the service. Everyone, and I mean every employee, we encountered, was friendly, smiling and helpful. We have stayed in many 5 star hotels and agreed that the service here was the best we have ever received. The rooms are lovely and the overall feeling at the hotel is of luxury and elegance . I highly recommend this hotel. We loved it so much we have already booked a return in December. Mahalo Halekulani for such a wonderful experience.

Upscaled, well maintained, well designed resort style hotel. Little on expensive side but well worth the money. Great service and great location with ocean view. I would stay here again and will do recommend this place to everyone. Solo, family and all occasions.
