“"BEST hotel and most AWESOME staff in the whole of Waikiki"”
Reviewed August 5, 2012

Having been to Hawaii three times and stayed in several hotels, I will NEVER even consider staying at any hotel but this magnificent,clean and spacious property. The location is in the heart of Waikiki and the beach right across the road. The friendly humourous staff are WONDERFUL, Regan,Eddy,Russ,Greg Tom,Kalani are a few of the many AWESOME staff that would go out of their way to help make your stay a more enjoyable and comfortable one in which they did. Every room has spectacular views(even the partial oceanfront views). The rooms are very spacious and impeccably clean and confortable. The service is AMAZING. Love it and would not hesitate to go back and HIGHLY recommend the Beach Tower to stay. Number ONE hotel.
Luv you all Christine Gross xoxo

Room Tip: The centre rooms have more of a view Highr floors are les noisy.

My wife and I have stayed at this beautiful property approximately five time over the past several years. We keep returning because of the wonderful, friendly staff. The location is in the heart of Waikiki. We have stayed in a one bedroom oceanfront, and a two bedroom oceanfront. The views are spectacular and the rooms are spacious, clean and very comfortable. We highly recommend this hotel.

Room Tip: My wife and I prefer the 02 rooms (20th floor and higher), they have panoramic views of the ocean.

Having returning for my 50th high school reunion, my family and stayed in the Presidential Penthouse, room#4004 for a week in mid-July (2012). What a great view we had of the ocean, mountains, and the east side of the island. Yes, every room had a window with a beautiful view. It even had a window with a view in the master bathroom. The hotel provided everything we needed and more. It was equipped with various sizes of pots, pans, soaps, dish cloths, silverware, dishes, packaged coffee, coffee maker, blender, rice maker, even chopsticks. The living room had all of the comforts of home with big flat screen TVs in each room, wifi connections, ipod speaker, double sinks in the master bedroom, etc. The furniture and room decor was elegant with cherry wood and a very comfortable sofa bed and chair. The view once again was fantastic. You could see the entire Waikiki beach and all of the granduer that Hawaii has to offer.

The bellman/valet man named "Eddy" was so nice and was able to provide information about where to get some great local food such as "shave ice", "long johns", "poke", "chop suey". He was always smiling and had an outstanding personality. The hotel manager "Regan(?)" was also very nice and so was every staff member that we came in contact with. They really know how to show the "aloha spirit" to their hotel guests.

Unfortunately, the time flew by so fast that before we knew it, it was time to check out and head back home. If your'e looking for a great place to stay on your next trip to Hawaii, I strongly recommend the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower. It has everything you need. They wont nickel and dime you by charging you an additional $10 hotel daily fees for ameneties and another $11 a day for parking, etc. You just pay the price that's listed on your invoice when you check in and plan to have a great time at the famous Waikiki beach which is just steps away from your room. Aloha!

Our family stayed here for the size of the room. location, and view. We are Expedia Elite Plus members and were supposed to receive a room upgrade but were informed that we had already booked the Premium room and would not be upgraded. No big deal. We were initially taken to room 3501 where the view of the ocean was not so panoramic so we requested a different room which we were immediately given. Room 3502 was AMAZING! Everything we wanted and more! The panoramic ocean view from the living area and master bedroom and the size were spot on. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We were told that you cannot see the Hilton fireworks from the lanai but up that high you definitely can and I would suggest checking it out on Friday nights at dark. The Aston is not what I consider a 5 star but more like a home away from home. Washer and dryer came in handy. Was very nice not have to do dishes also. The only downside was the bed in master was quite hard and uncomfortable and the wireless internet gave us several problems throughout our stay. We would definitely stay at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower again if ever in Oahu.

Room Tip: Rooms ending in 02 or 03 have a panoramic ocean view from the lanai and also have large sliding glas...

Aloha!

I would like to begin by saying MAHALO to these guests for staying with us and for taking the time to share their Waikiki vacation experience with us.

I was really pleased to see they found their views from their suite to be "panoramic and amazing" and I was even happier to see the comments about our staff. All of our managers and employees really try their very best to make each and every guest experience the best it can be and I'm really happy these guests were able to experience just that. I also noted their comments about the beds in their suite and I'm happy to share with them that we are working on a purchasing program for our owners to replace all of the beds at the property. I will also be having our Chief Engineer check on the WIFI connectivity in this suite as we just went through an upgrade to increase the speed of the connection.

MAHALO once again to these guests for staying with us and I sincerely hope we have the opportunity of hosting them and all of you in the future.

ALOHA!

We stayed at the Waikiki Beach Tower in a 2 bedroom/2 bath w/kitchen deluxe oceanfront room. The service was impressive. We orignally booked a partial ocean view room but then upgraded to the deluxe oceanfront room upon arrival. We were shown both the penthouse and the deluxe oceanfront rooms (the premium oceanfront rooms were completely booked so we didn't get to see any of them). The penthouse and deluxe OF rooms were exactly the same. However, the penthouse had totally unobstructive views and was high up. You could see the Hilton Hawaiian Village Friday night fireworks from the balcony. The penthouse rooms also comes with slippers and bathrobes for your use (the deluxe oceanfront did not). In the deluxe oceanfront rooms, you can see some of the other surrounding hotels on the sides. The premium oceanfront rooms are higher up and above the the surrounding hotels which is probably the best option if you want beachfront, unobstructed views without having to pay penthouse prices. The TVs were old (non-flatscreen) but had a ton of channels and the rooms could definitely use some spucing up with new coats of paint (there were a lot of visible scuff marks which made the room seem more outdated). However, the tile floors in the bathroom and kitchen were clean (I know because we had to wipe up the wet floor with a towel in these areas and the towel came up clean) and the service impressive. Every time we needed to use our car, the valets were quick. We never waited more than 5 minutes. The valets were friendly and greeted us by name. The in-room washer and dryer was convenient. They provided laundry detergent too. The location was perfect! Just a walk through a beautiful archway of flowers, and the beach was right across the street. The location, amenities, service, & cleanliness definitely outweighed the cosmetic imperfections of the room. We would definitely stay there again. With minor updating and refreshing, I would rate the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower a 5.

Room Tip: Ask if there are rooms available to upgrade to and take a tour of all the rooms before deciding!

Aloha,

I would like to begin by saying MAHALO to these guests for allowing us the opportunity of hosting them and for taking the time to share their experiences with us.

I was really happy to see they found our location to be ideal, their suite clean and the views to their liking. I was even happier however to see their comments about our staff. Everyone tries their very best to share their own brand of the "aloha spirit" and I'm pleased these guests were able to experience just that. I also noted their comments about the age of our suites and I'm pleased to share with them that plans are now being formulated to upgrade the decor in the suites with new furniture, appliances, carpeting, beds and LED's. We're very excited about this project and can't wait to get started.

MAHALO once again to these guests for staying with us and I sincerely hope we have the opportunity of hosting them and all of you in the future.

Overall the condo was great. We had a condo on the 15th floor. The view was incredible. It was great to have a washer/dryer in the condo. It was spacious, but the furniture was very cheap. The kitchen sink leaked out of the faucet when you turned it on, and my husband had to pull the drains on the bathubs because water wouldn't drain down them. We had pigeons galore on the balcony, and if you kept the door open, they would come in your room. The kids thought it was funny, not so much for me:) We walked to the zoo (5 minute walk), the aquarium (8 minute walk), waikiki beach was across the street and the international market place was about a 5 minute walk. The condo was really great, it just needs some updating and fixing up.
