Reviewed July 21, 2014

if you are looking for a condo type beachfront this is where you want to stay! Hilton is steps away from ala moana mall - bus stops infront that will take you anywhere around the island - staff is very friendly - beach is not rocky at the Atlantis submarine takes off from the pier there - many pools to choose from - never feels crowded - some construction going on which is a bit annoying -

July 2014 - This hotel is only designed for Japanese Tourist .The front desk does not understand what a 5 star service is all about for this level of hotel, they argue with you that nothing can be done, and it is the same person on the desk doing that , bad for the hotel Maybe if I could speak Japanese they will pay more attention....

My family of 4 enjoyed the two bedroom ocean view suite. Good one-butt kitchen; do yourself a favor and hit the local Costco, Safeway or Foodland markets and stock up. We averaged 2 meals a day prepared in the suite, which allowed for the occasional splurge at a restaurant without feeling like breaking the bank. The Hilton Hawaiian Village really is self contained, and you could walk to all the shops and restaurants in the Waikiki area if you wanted. If you are into resort amenities, they have it all at a price. Want a chaise lounge chair and umbrella for the beach? Pony up $40 for the day. $35 an hour to rent a Stand Up Paddleboard. You get the idea. The staff were all fantastic, very helpful and friendly. We had trouble getting our housekeeping service to resupply the toilet paper; twice during our 10 day stay we ran out and had to call for more (they clean the suites twice a week, and both times didn't leave any new rolls of TP). The section of the beach near the lagoon is nice and expansive; walk towards the Diamond Head end and you'll see how narrow the beach is in places. Add to that some nice reef sheltered areas in front and this place has the best section of beach. I'll miss looking out my window and seeing the Rainbow tower and the colorful ocean!

I am really uncomfortable usually sleeping in a hotel. The Hilton Grand Wakikian had the most comfortable mattress, a very fluffy, wonderful comforter and an abundance of so soft pillows. The location is great! My son was surfing twice a day right in the front of the Hilton village, the beach was great for swimming & snorkeling. Less busy than further west on Waikiki, but so close to everything. We had our own private Hilton fireworks that happen every Friday.

Been coming to the Hilton Hawaiian Village for years with my Family. The HGVC Grand Waikikian is the best for my family and myself. It is so close to everything and yet it is a self contained resort with a history.

If you like a vacation where you can have peace and quiet to read, walk the beaches, enjoy the pools, and also have access to a bustling shopping area with excellent shops and restaurants when you want that as well, then this is the perfect place to stay. Great location, very friendly staff, and prompt service.

Have stayed here before and enjoyed it. Great location at the beginning of Waikiki Beach. Room was satisfactory after several attempts to remove strong smoke odor. Pools and recreation areas are very crowded but then everywhere in Honolulu is crowded!
