We booked a 2 bedroom oceanview and were upgraded to a penthouse 2 bedroom on the 39th floor. The views were terrific. Access to the concierge lounge for continental breakfast and evening snacks was a bonus. The suite was wonderful. The housekeeping was excellent. The only issue with the suite was that the dryer takes all day to dry anything. The pool at the GW was mobbed with kids (including my own) using the water slides. It was not a relaxing environment at all. The Super pool was a little better. We did not care for the lagoon at HHV . The man made "beach" felt like hard concrete covered with a very thin layer of very rough sand. We also did not care for the stretch of Waikiki beach that fronts HHV. We found it murky and seaweedy. Overall, though, we enjoyed HHV, though it is a crowded mega resort. The grounds are lovely. Lapperts coffee and ice cream is not to be missed. The Friday night hula and fireworks show was fun too. We were glad we rented a car and explored Oahu. We loved he Kahala area, Diamond Head, the North Shore and the southeast coast.
