We loved the location of this hotel which is at the park end of Waikiki about 1 minute from the beach but still only a 5/10min walk to the centre of the strip. The hotel had complimentary beach towels and seats available from the front desk which we used regularly - a nice touch. If you want to get The Bus to Honolulu or Diamond Head there are plenty of lines just a short walk up the road but beware they can be very busy.
We booked an ocean view room which was exactly what we got. We could watch the glorious sunset from our room if we were not still on the beach. The room itself was small by US standards but perfectly adequate for two people who were out most of the day. The TV was huge, great to watch the surfing channel on. The bathroom was modern and clean if again a little small. There was a little fridge we could put some drinks in to keep them cool. We slept well.
While there is a complimentary breakfast it was all pastries which won't suit some but there are plenty of options within a short walking distance. I would have liked slightly stronger coffee as well. I had a great Mai Tai in the bar one evening.
The staff were all friendly and helpful. We would certainly consider staying here again if we are lucky enough to get back to Oah'u.
