I LOVED this hotel!!! I guess the opinion depends on the person staying there. It is located at the end of the Kalakaua strip so it isnt pushed up against all the other hotels but still walking distance to everything. Conveniently, there is a rental car service (dollar/thrifty) right across the street. The staff waived our parking fee since we were only keeping our rental there one night.
We stayed here six nights and enjoyed every bit of it. The rooms are nice and clean and have just about everything you need, flat screen t.v.'s, kitchenettes, hide-a-bed sofas, etc. The rooms are of great size and the beds I found to be incredibly comfortable. Room service did an awesome job at replenishing necessities.
We booked this hotel not expecting much out of it since we werent planning on spending any time in the hotel but, I have to say that the Luana exceeded our expectations! I am extremely particular about where I stay...the room has to feel clean in order for me to enjoy my stay and this hotel was right on the money.
If you plan to sit in your room all day then you should consider one of the $200+a-night hotels located right across from the beach. But if your looking for a good night's rest, a place to keep your belongings while you enjoy the island, and a great staff, I would definitely recommend the Luana.More
