Simple and comfortable.
A great choice in Waikiki if its not necessary for you to stay right on the beach. The Hilton has a
Good happy hr bar with live music,
Good restaurant, the renovated rooms are very sophisticated and most have great ocean views from balcony

I am a resident of Oahu and every now and again, I treat myself to "staycations" downtown in Waikiki. This Hilton property is my new favorite hotel downtown. The customer service is 10x better than the Hilton Hawaiian village. My room is even better than any of the Hawaiian Village rooms I've ever gotten and was ~$50-100 cheaper. All staff is very accomodating and pleasant. The MAC 24/7 restaurant has great breakfast. This location is great - near the beach, near the clubs on Kuhio, and near the strip (Kalakaua Avenue), but somehow still manages to be very quiet. I hated to leave and I can't wait to return!

The view of our room was very nice. Rooms are beautiful, modern bathroom. Very clean and well kept. The hotel front desk service agents are helpful and very attentive. The location is good, just one street behind the beach. We would recommend it for the whole family.

The Hilton Waikiki is a very nice property, but without all the amenities of its much larger cousin the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The Hilton Waikiki is only a short block up from Waikiki Beach and a short walk from the heart of the Waikiki shopping area. Very convenient to all the other hotels in Waikiki and a bunch of restaurants, from fast food, to casual to fine dining. Tour trolleys stop right in front of the hotel.

Parking is all valet and the service is usually fast, both dropping off and picking up. The lobby has a recently remodeled bar that offers live entertainment on some weekends. The pool area is nice if not spectacular. The five lobby elevators are fast and more than enough to ensure a short wait for service. Staff is friendly and helpful and the rooms clean and well maintained. All in all a very nice hotel experience.

Stayed for 12 days, business and pleasure. Located a couple of blocks away from the beach, on the more quiet end of the Waikiki "strip." Had a room with ocean view on the 29th floor. The room was of decent size and clean. Bed was comfortable. Balcony a little scary at first due to the height, but once accustomed to it, it was fine. Sunset views were amazing from the room. General service was very good, valet parking somewhat slow at times, mainly due to the small area in front of the hotel and not due to the personnel. Only had breakfast in the hotel once, and the portions were huge (as always in the US) and pancakes very nice.

Extra positives: Complimentary botttle of wine and fruit plate on check-in. The bed headboard had a few tears in it, but this was changed on the second day without mentioning it to the staff.

Overall: Slightly worn hotel, and the hotel itself was nothing extraordinary, but just as expected from the price and from the pictures, 3-4* hotel. However, the staff definitely made up for it, and exceeded what I would expect from a 5*.

Although not on the beach, thus a less than "excellent" location rate, this hotel is located near the less crowded end of Waikiki with great Bus service, close to Kapiolani Park and shopping. Good ocean view from the south elevation or mountain view from the north. Restaurant is open 24 hours with great food, reasonably priced. Room was great with 42" flat screen TV. Hotel underwent $64 Million renovation a few years ago when Hilton took it over. Pool deck is large with salt water pool, whirlpool and Pool Bar. Staff is great and attended to our every need with Aloha. We have spent 2-3 weeks here every year for over 10 years and will continue to choose it whenever we travel to Honolulu.

Room Tip: South face has good ocean view 2 blocks away but above a busy street (Kuhio), however noise is not h...

This hotel has all the right stuff. Near the beach but not on the main road so it was not noisy. The room was very nice, with a really top notch bathroom and shower set up. The decor was tasteful and modern. My room faced the mountain which was really nice. The lights at night were really pretty. The staff was very friendly and I have to give big shout out to Ryan at the valet/bell desk. That guy works so hard and is charming and helpful to boot. He helped me with cabs, directions, bus travel, luggage etc. The "Mac" restaurant has THE best pancake breakfast you will ever have. If you are going to Waikiki, this is the place to stay.

Room Tip: The mountain view rooms are quieter and have lovely views of the mountain.
