Second time I stayed here in past 4 months and just as good the second time around. Good experience from check in to check out. Front desk efficient get you in and get you on to your room with minimum fuss. Rooms are great, comfortable and if you are lucky to have ocean view its spectacular. Lots of light in the room and you even get a balcony if you are comfortable hanging out try to get a room on the upper floors so you can have views of the beach and Diamondhead. Beds are comfortable, and rooms clean and you have a refrigerator and coffee maker in the credenza. Restaurants and Bar are good and staff friendly and good at taking care of the patrons. Go to happy hour and enjoy the music, they have very good entertainment most could make it on and perhaps win American Idol. Mahalo

Room Tip: Spend a little extra and get an ocean view, that's why you are here.

I have stayed at the Hilton Waikiki Beach many times over the past 15 years. The name has changed but the service and views from the upper levels remain the same....."very good to outstanding"

I like the hotel because it is near the park which is a wonderful place to job. There is a Starbucks right across from the park where you can get a cup of coffee and then cross the street to the beach or the park. Not a bad life!!!

The hotel could improve it's executive lounge which is in the basement and not very attractive. I no longer sign up for executive lounge access at the hotel. The other negative is the pool area tends to get very windy.

The hotel has enough positives that continue to draw me back. I plan on returning later this year when I am working in Honolulu.

Room Tip: Oceanside floor 18 and above

Great hotel with the fastest lifts I have ever been in. The balcony is not for the faint hearted and if you suffer from vertigo don't step out onto these. Thought that being charged for parking was pushing it a bit.

We booked our stay for October last year based on Trip Advisor reviews and were not disappointed. On arrival we were upgraded to an ocean view room and it made a huge difference being able to pull the curtains back every morning and see the beautiful view! The rooms are tastefully decorated, and very clean. The lobby is spacious and grand and the lifts very quick. We stayed on the 29th floor and found the hotel to be quiet and well run. The reception staff were efficient and housekeeping polite and friendly.
The stroll to the beach was 2 minutes and there is a bus stop to Ala Moana Shopping centre right outside the door. My 7 and 9 year old boys loved the ocean but were equally happy to return to the hotel and cool off in the pool. The pool deck was only slightly windy.
Our package deal included the buffet breakfast which we took advantage of. The boys enjoyed the variety of sausages, scrambled eggs, waffles, yoghurt, Danish pastries and muffins that changed daily.
On the day we checked out our flight was 10pm. We asked reception if we were able to have use of a room in the afternoon to freshen up before leaving for the airport. They were very accommodating and told us to check back in the afternoon to see if a room was available for an hour. We were able to secure a room from 4-5pm for a much needed shower before our flight.
All in all a positive experience for this fussy traveller! My family and I would definitely be back again.

We stayed here over the holidays. The staff was, in a word, awesome. This was especially true of the Executive Lounge staff (Ester, Cassandra, and Bill). Cassandra was even kind enough to get the recipe of my kids' favorite cookie from the chef . Front desk staff member was out from behind the desk before I could even ask to have our picture taken out front of the Christmas tree in the lobby.

The hotel appeared to be very well maintained. The Mac 24/7 restaurant's food was good and not obscenely priced. The pool area is good sized and has a bar, however, the hours the bar operated did not seem very long. T

The room was nice. Our room was on a mid-level floor and had a nice view of the ocean. It had your standard amenities. The only negative we found w/ the room was the wall between the bedroom and the bathroom is part glass. If someone got up in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom, the light from the bathroom would wake everyone up.

The location of the hotel is at the end of the beach area, but only a block off of the beach. It was a little walk to some of the attractions and eateries, but not bad.

Overall, would definitely stay here again if we return to Waikiki.

Room Tip: Oceanside room above 15th floor or higher will provide a nice view.

The hilton was a great find only as the yanks say two blocks from the sea front so not worth paying the inflated prices to be on the beach ( as all beaches are open to the public ). The rooms are very spacious with all the amenities you would expect from a hilton nice comfy bed clean and tidy. The pool is only small but kept clean and there is a bar there so you don't have to move far for a drink, the lobby is spacious with plenty of seating, we didn't eat in the hotel so no comment there.

All in all this is a great moderate priced hotel for where it is
