Second visit

My first visit to Honolulu was taken on a whim with little or no planning. This time I'll be better prepared.

I plan to stay nine nights, hotel spend $200 appox per night and will probably be travelling solo. Shortlisted hotels are Waikiki Resort, Aqua Wave, Beachcomber, Hyatt and at a pinch The Breakers (but no chance of water view here). First decision is where to stay and your advice is appreciated.

I can't drive so will be relying on The Bus to get about. I particularly want to go to Ward Centre. Where is it and is it doable by bus?

Thanks for your help.

Ward Warehouse & Ward Center (Victoria Ward Center) are just on the opposite side of Ala Moana Center. #19, #20 or #42 bus from Waikiki.

Ward Center is easy by bus, as is the Ala Moana (shopping) Center.

Of the hotels you mentioned - the Hyatt is far ahead on the top pf the list.
