From the minute you show up to this hotel you are treated like old friends. Everyone at this place goes out of their way to help. Rooms are very nice, the lobby and breakfast are pretty good, but this hotel is carried by it's staff. We had one problem where our air conditioner broke, we told the front desk and it was fixed by the time we got back from dinner (around 2 hours). Really, the staff of this hotel are phenomenal.
Closet with locker, mini fridge, swing out flat screen tv, comfortable bed, nice shoji screens to make the room dark, very nice and modern bathroom. Sure, no pool, but who comes to Hawaii to swim in chlorine.
Pretty small but functional, the bar doubles as the breakfast station. The bar is good, decent prices and really good drinks. Jackie was our bartender and made for really great conversation, she really made us feel welcome. You must try Jackie's mai tai's. We walked down to the Royal Hawaiian to try their mai tai because they are supposed to be so good and the original, that being said after trying Jackie's mai tai's the Royal Hawaiian's tasted like pineapple juice. Breakfast is pretty good too, fresh fruit, muffins, yogurt, and really good coffee.
It is 25 bucks a day, which seems expensive, but parking in waikiki is next to impossible, so we found this to be a great service. We never waited for our car, it was always ready, and the valets were always willing to offer suggestions for what to do that day and were genuinely happy to hear about what we did when we got back.
