Don't get me wrong, this hotel was amazing. The service was the best I have ever experienced. We stayed two nights. It was a great experience and we don't regret having stayed but I wouldn't stay again just because of the price. Definitely do it once. Afternoon tea is amazing.

Having come from the Four Seasons in Kona where the staff were just amazing and so warm, I found the Halekulani a bit cold and snobby. The words were there and so were the gestures (a nice treat each night at turndown), but it did not feel sincere/warm. It felt a little bit stuck up and I generally found the... More

During the 4th of July weekend, we spent a great deal of energy trying to move from this hotel to others (Sheraton, Royal Hawaiian and Moana Surfrider) but could not find a vacancy. We finally left after 5 nights to spend our last 3 at a more vibrant hotel. Biggest issue is the lack of beach access. This was not... More

Our third visit to the Halekulani and still love it as much as our first. Check in staff very helpful in allocating us the perfect ocean front room. The Halekulani has the beauty of being right in the heart of Waikiki but feeling like it's quiet and secluded. Just take a walk along the beach front and you will notice... More

No matter where we went at the property we were always greeted with a smile and usually with our names in the greeting! The rooms are spacious and I would recommend an ocean or partial ocean view, great way to start or end the day looking at the activity on the beach and ocean. The restaurants are fabulous with Le...

We loved our all too short stay at the Halekulani. We had booked 3 ocean view rooms for our family of 6, and the views were lovely and the rooms a good size. The hotel was a great calm and relaxed feel and it was a joy to sit around the pool, or have drinks in the evening by the... More

This is a great hotel. The property, the location, the rooms are all 5 starts. The service is first class also. Service here is a real attribute that sets this place apart. I would certainly start here again. However - Some drawbacks to note: @ pool - very nice in terms of size temperature and service. Yet they need a... More

This is a great hotel with great location. Perfect for couples, though really great even for families. My family loved it (I visited in July 2015). The beach is not the best (as it is small and access is not direct) but otherwise is great. Rooms are bright and relaxing. Breakfast area is amazing (outdoor)

Our last stay in Waikiki we stayed at the Trump, which is across the street from the Halekulani. The service at both hotels is first rate, as one would expect of 5 star properties (and prices to match). We really enjoyed the Halekulani and will be staying here again. The pool is better (it's ground level and the hotel does... More
