“Enjoyed our stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2013 via mobile

The resort is huge and it has all the conveniences you would expect. Stayed in a one bedroom suite and the room was nicely equipped. I personally felt that one housekeeping service during a eight night stay was too skimpy. But if we ever needed anything, it was sent up to the room very quickly.

I stayed at this property because I am a HGVC timeshare owner. We liked the location as it is off of Waikiki beach a bit, less crowd on the beach at the resort, but an easy walk to the heart of Waikiki if that is your desire.

If you are traveling with a family, this resort would be a good choice. For a romantic couples trip, you may want to look for a property with a more intimate setting.

This time was the second stay. . The grandchild was same as Mr. and Mrs. daughter, too, but 2 bedroom types were available and were able to enjoy a stay with a space by the use with two couples this time last year. I had you teach the usage such as the institutions of the hotel carefully from コンセルジュ and was able to inflect. The different experience is possible every time and look forward to the next use.

Self parking $27 per day (too much for self parking) 2 Bedroom Premier is just a regular 2 Bed 2 Bath! Clean and no nonsense. Great for families with kids. Nice shops, big resort. (the slide pool is too small and in the shade!)

Stayed 4 nights at the Grand Waikikian, I got a fabulous deal on this through HGV of course I did have to go to a timeshare presentation but, the value was so worth the 2 hours. The sales person and his manager were not pushy at all and respected our "No" decision.
We had a wonderful 1 bedroom suite. Rooms were very tastefully furnished and very comfortable. And though I don't cook it was nice having a fully stocked kitchen. We were able to buy fruit and have lovely fruit salad for breakfast, also a toaster is available, so toast with cheese and we had a great little breakfast . (A rice cooker available as well :o)). The living room had a extremely comfortable little couch - usually hotels have lumpy hard couches, not this one. Also a DVD player and a game console were available - DVD's can be rented in the lobby. The bed and pillows were very comfortable - slept very well. All in all I really loved this place, was nice coming "home" at the end of the day and chilling! I gave the property a "Very Good" instead of Excellent (which it really is) only because the entire resort is so big. I found the grounds to be rather overwhelming but, that's just me. I loved the resort and despite the size would stay again and certainly would recommend.

ON 4/5/13 we flew into Honolulu, Hi, we booked a 2 night stay at the Outrigger Luana. 1 bedroom condo, it was nice and clean. But could of used alittle updating. Our view was amazing.Good front desk people.Very accommdating and very nice. But we didn't like valet parking for $25,00 per day. Considering Honolulu is very expensive. but all in all i'll rate is as nice. The on 4/7/13 we went to The Grand Waikikian by the Hilton, we liked the hilton again beautiful ocean virews. With a two bedrooms and 2 baths. We stayed there 5 days. It was nicely furnished and very accommadating to our needs. We rented a cadillac srx suv because we had our son and some friends there.So this trip was alittle business and alittle pleasure.We all enjoyed it. But again the parking was too-expensive the Hilton valet parking was $33.00 a day and self parking was $27.00 a day. Its really tuff parking in H0N0LULU, alot of one way streets.it

Room Tip: Get a high floor and a cornor room, with a ocean view. We had both ocean and city views in both plac...

The Grand Waikikian is a great location to stay at. The views are great and there are alot of things to do right at the property. The staff is very helpful and nice. The Bali Steak and Seafood restaurant was a big disappointment with a high price tag. The food at the Tropics Bar and Grill was good and the ambiance was great. There are a lot of things to do for the whole family. We would definitely come again.

Excellent location, close to everything you would ever need when in Honolulu. The pools, lagoon and nearby beaches were wonderful. Staff were very friendly and extremely helpful. Although this is a higher price hotel than what I am used to, it was well worth the extra money. The room was very nice, clean and c/w a fully functional kitchen. Ask for a high floor - the views just get better as you get higher. We actually had mostly a city view, which seemed disappointing at first, but if you come from a small city like we do, it was interesting to watch the this busy city from our balcony. Also very easy to get a taxi at the front entrance.

Room Tip: Try to get a high floor with an ocean view.
