We booked this hotel through Delta Vacations (a package including air , hotel and rental car). The occasion was my wife's birthday and I had not been to Hawaii before. Great reasons. Very pleasant check in-no glitches--and we were upgraded to a honeymoon suite on the 25th floor. Very nice room with a Jacuzzi and two balconies affording views of the ocean and southern side overlooking the Grand Waikikian and Lagoon hotels. Very nice!!
Galley kitchen with cooking utensils and service for 6-very nice. Valet parked the car the first night ($22) and subsequent nights parked at the marina parking lot-slots 55 to 73-for $8 a night figuring that most of the day we were out galavanting on the island. The hotel needs some care as several floors had the carpets removed but nothing new installed in their place. Scraps and bits of construction debris littered the corridors. Had trouble finding the fitness center (small but adequate) due to bad (NO) signage. They gave out vouchers for "continental" breakfast the next day when I asked. Vouchers can be traded in (value $5) for the Early Bird special breakfast (very good) for an additional $3. The "continental" breakfast sucked: a very small piece of banana bread, some mystery "juice" and a cup of coffee. Go for the early bird special which we did for two mornings. After that we made our own breakfast and ate on the balcony watching the early morning surfers. VERY nice!!
So, would we stay at this dowager again? Absolutely!! The location is superb and our room was very nice. Just do not expect 5-star quality.
