Stayed here last 2 weeks in Feb. Had an oceanview room on 25th floor looking out over the marina, lagoon and ocean. Decent sized balcony where we enjoyed breakfast every morning watching the surfers. Room was large with a comfortable very large king bed, large flat screen TV, fridge, microwave and coffee machine (coffee provided). Two large wardrobes and a decent sized chest of drawers for storage. Iron and ironing board and a safe were also provided. Actual bathroom was quite small with shower over a very short bath,it was a bit shabby but functional. There was an outer area where I normally would have expected the sink to be but wasn't, just a large mirror and counter top. As most people have said the room was a bit tired looking and could do with a refurb. No real complaints about the room, the cleaner came in every day with clean towels etc. We left a tip for her at the end of the first week and near the end of our stay and its the first time that I have been thanked for doing this. Free WiFi worked well in the room. We thought the hotel was in a good position with regards to the beach and the Ala Moana shopping centre but it was a bit of a trek to the main Waikiki area. We did use the trolley service though which stopped just outside the hotel. We booked a couple of trips through the concierge who was very helpful. The only real negative was the pool which was very small considering the size of the hotel and it was difficult to find beds. The best positions were taken early in the day, usually by regulars, and we did see a lot of "booking" chairs with towels etc. Also we over heard someone saying that they didn't stay in the hotel but came to the pool every day. Overall we would stay here again.
