This hotel was a splurge after staying with friends for a week. The location is excellent - best part of the beach! And convenient to great stores, restaurants, etc. The bar food was overpriced, and drinks were strong, but the ambiance was great. The service was beyond excellent! Stayed in older section, and rooms were huge although the bathroom was fairly small with only shower stall, not bath. I can't say enough about the staff - they truly make this hotel one of the best I have ever stayed at. From the moment you drive in and meet the bell hops & parking staff, to the cleaning staff, to the desk clerks, the staff are generous, helpful, genuine and caring. The welcome of a jasmine lei and banana bread was well appreciated. I became very ill on my last day in Hawaii and one wonderful desk staff person arranged for me to remain in my room beyond the check out time until I could get to the airport in the evening. Once I arrived back home, I found that his generous gift of rest before I left probably saved my life. It was a peaceful, classic 1920's hotel - an refined oasis in the middle of hotel sprawl. I highly recommend it!
