Aston Waikiki Beach Tower
Ranked #23 of 84 Hotels in Honolulu
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed September 15, 2010

First time at the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower and would stay there again for sure. Great location in Waikiki with fantastic views of the ocean. No restaurant or bar which keeps the noise and traffic down inside the hotel. There are plenty of bars, restaurants and shopping within walking distance. Right next door the Pacific Beach Hotel which is used by several excursion companies as their pick up location. Easy walk to rental car companies as well.

Would recommend the 20th floor or higher for the best view of the ocean as the Waikiki Circle Hotel can block your view from the lower floors. Would like to personally thank General Manager Mike Tasaka and Guest Service Supervisor Regan Fujii for stepping up and taking care of us. These two gentlemen went far and beyond to make sure our stay was memorable. Aloha.

Aloha!

I would like to begin by saying MAHALO(THANK YOU) to these guests for staying with us and for taking the time to share their "Waikiki" experiences with all of us. I am so glad they found our location ideal and the views "fantastic"(remember we're so close to famous Waikiki Beach that you can start putting suntan lotion on at the entrance to the property and by the time you're finished you'll also be standing in front of the beach where the Duke used to surf). And I'll be sure to pass along their positive comments to our Guest Services Supervisor who I know will be happy to hear from them.

MAHALO once again to these guests for staying with us and I really hope to see them and all of you in the near future!

ALOHA!

Hawaii is so pretty and the water is so clear and warm. I loved every minute of it with my husband Brian and my 13 yr. old son Mason.

This is a condominium style accommodation, and it is as though you've really got your own place in Honolulu right across the street from Waikiki Beach. It's the sort of place that is quite upscale. We had a two bedroom/two bathroom set up, and it was so very nice for our family of five people. There was so much space to relax. The bedrooms and bathrooms were average sized, the kitchen was a bit tiny yet had a view to the beach, and the living room was huge. We had a lanai as well. The pool is quite tiny and with the beach right across the street why bother? We had a great time not driving around as we could just walk up busy Kalakaua Avenue to get supplies and what not. It was handy to have the kitchen to cook some meals.

I would like to begin by saying MAHALO(THANK YOU) to these guests for staying with us and for also taking the time to share their experiences with everyone. I was really happy to hear that they found our location ideal for their vacation needs(remember famous Waikiki Beach is a mere "39" steps from our entrance) and our spacious two-bedroom suites to their liking. While the pool is "cozy", they're right...with the largest salt-water "pool"(Waikiki Beach) merely "feet" away, why not enjoy a beautiful day at the beach.

MAHALO again to these guests for staying with us and we hope to have the opportunity of hosting them and all of you in the near future!

We love, love, love Aston Waikiki Beach Tower! We just returned from a 4-night stay in August. Since we usually visit 2 islands per trip, we stay in a hotel for the first island and always return to Waikiki Beach Tower. The proximity to the beach, the breathtaking view of Diamond Head & Waikiki, the friendly service and spacious rooms are just a few things that draw us back each year. You'd be hard pressed to find any condos/hotels that are this spacious at this price range. And it is located directly across from the beach. So, no driving, no parking hassles to get to a beach. In fact, they keep a storage of boogie boards, mats, and other beach gears that you can borrow during your stay. (Many guests donate their almost new boards when they leave).

The staff at Waikiki Beach Tower is always professional and friendly - especially those guys at the bell desk. They embody the spirit of Aloha. One of our favorite things to do in Hawaii is to have breakfast at lanai while enjoying the gorgeous view.

Most of the rooms have been recently renovated, and I noticed that the unit we stayed this time (#4002) had brand new mattresses! Thank you for that! The bathroom fixtures are not exactly what you would find at 5 star hotel, but they are certainly acceptable. Their service and location definitely rank 5 stars. It is also convenient that each unit has its own washer & dryer.

On a totally different subject, if you do stay in the Waikiki Beach Tower (or elsewhere in Oahu), do try malasadas from Leonards' Bakery - located within 10 minute drive from the condo. Malasadas are Portugese version of jelly donuts. I'm usually not a fan of donuts, but they were so delicious! There is usually a long line at the store, but it is worth the wait. The view from Waikiki Beach Tower and those malasadas are the two things I miss the most from Oahu. I can't wait until our next trip!

Aloha!

I would like to begin by sayinng MAHALO(THANK YOU) to these guests for staying with us and for taking the time to chronicle their experiences for everyone. I was really pleased to see that they found our location(right across from famous Waikiki Beach) to be ideal and our two-bedroom suites spacious and comfortable. And while you don't need a car to get to most of the shopping and venues in Waikiki, many of our guests do rent them as valet parking is complimentary.

I was even more pleased to see that they found our staff to be warm and friendly as they really do try hard to make each and every guest experience the best it can be. And our valets or "Ambassadors of Aloha" as we like to call them, really do embody the Aloha Spirit like all of our employees with their warm and friendly smiles, "talk-story" personalities and "shaka" signs.

And the secret is out! The malasadas in Kapahulu(our valets have maps for the location) are awesome. Warm and crispy on the outside, soft on the inside and covered with sugar or cinnamon sugar and plain or with a special filling, these island delicacies are worth the wait and maybe the extra mile you have to exercise to work them off.

MAHALO again to these guests for staying with us and here's hoping that we have the opportunity of hosting them for a "9th" time and all of you perhaps for the "1st" time in the near future!

Have a GREAT ALOHA FRIDAY!

When we arrived to check into a sister property, we were told we were being upgraded. At first, we were a little nervous because we had carefully chosen the sister property to accomodate our family of 5 (with two 16 year old and our 17 year old sons). When we arrived at the Beach Tower hotel, we were astonished. The condo was beaufiful ~ better than anywhere we have ever stayed as a family. The full kitchen was fully stocked. The unit also had a washer/dryer right in our condo. Our balcony overlooked the beautiful sandy beach. Every morning, I enjoyed my coffee while watching the sun come up. Beds were comfortable; two bathrooms gave us the gift of space. Closet space, living room, entry ... everything was better than we could have hoped for.

Staff were friendly, knowledgeable, and very helpful with everything. Housekeeping staff were invisible and surpassed any expectations we may have had. Front desk staff and the concierge were instrumental in finding us both a minor injury clinic and transportation when one son was slightly injured. Much to our surprise, it was the bellmen who were incredible! Their professionalism, courtesy, and friendliness made us feel like we were family members. When we asked for activity suggestions, they assisted us in both choosing and then booking fabulous (and very reasonable) tours and activities throughout our stay. (Don't bother with the trip/activity vendors on the street - you will be much happier with the recommendations of the bellmen.)

After checking out at noon on our departure day, we knew the hotel would keep our luggage until our flight left later that night. We didn't expect to be offered towels and the use of showers at the end of the day - but were very pleased to be able to take advantage of that extra perk.

Since our sons will be heading to college beginning next year, this was quite possibly our last family vacation. Thank you to the staff at this property for making it memorable and, most definitely, the best vacation of our lives!!!

I was also very pleased to see that they found our fully equipped kitchen and their ocean front accommodations to their liking. We like to think we have some of the finest panoramic views of famous Waikiki Beach and our location is ideal as we're just "39 steps" away from the sandy beach in front of us.

Just got back from another Hawaiian vacation. Stayed at the Aston Kaanapali Shores in Marui and the Beachtower on Oahu. I can't say enough about the Hotel staff......All are knowlegable about the area (i.e. close supermarkets/farmers markets), where to eat and they always greet you with a smile and ask if we need any help. Location is a block away from the International Market and just a short walk to many restaurants. Free parking/valet service at the Beachtower is definitely a plus in often crowded and hard to find parking around Waikiki. I felt like a VIP during my stay. This was my second stay at the Beachtower and I had met a couple more groups of guests who were on their third and fourth stay. There is NO question as to where I will be staying the next time I come to Waikiki!!!

This serviced apartment is great all round. We stayed at a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom apartment, had everything your house had. They changed sheets every 3 days, towels everyday and changed the little stuff everyday ie. laundry powder, washed dishes, etc. It was a very spacious apartment overlooking waikiki beach and was in fact on the same road as the beach. About 15 mins walk from the international market. They are not really a hotel, so can't compare the services to a hotel, but the room was fantastic, especially for a family. Room was comfortable, not the newest, but didn't look dated at all. I would highly recommend this apartment if you don't require the services of a 5 star hotel, though they do have a concierge who was very helpful. The price was a little high, but I think it reflects the size and quality of the apartment and the location as well.

I was very happy to see that they found our suites to be "just like home" as we have tried very hard to do exactly that...all of the comforts of home with an ocean view that is something to see. We do provide daily housekeeping service where the sheets and towels are changed daily and also have a nightly turndown service that includes a freshening of towels and the turning down of your beds. I was really glad to see that they found our location to be ideal as we are conveniently located right across the street from famous Waikiki Beach(39 steps from our entrance gate) and minutes away from shopping and dining excitment.
