PROS:
- great location: super short walk to excellent beach, walk to Waikiki madness, walk to great restaurants in the opposite direction from Waikiki. Hotel next door was a stop for all tour buses/trolleys/etc.
- balcony had ocean view and mountain views (our room was city view)
- breakfast was simple: coffee/tea, Costco-like pastries, pineapple juice, but much appreciated. It was great to not have to walk somewhere to buy coffee and put some food in your stomach, and was fast before heading out. ** TIP: breakfast is from 7-9:30 -- the pastry selection was much better between 7 and 7:30, and husband thought the coffee was better earlier on too.
- beach mats, chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, beach towels, were all available for free, which was also much appreciated.
- water with lemon was set out after breakfast, GREAT to fill up water bottles and not have to buy water at ABC.
- after checkout, they gave us a room for an hour to freshen up before our flight, so we could go to the beach one last time!

CONS:
- our room was smallest on floor (only one with balcony) and was tiny, and entry way and closet was super dark. Accent lighting was inadequate.
- the refrigerator kept our water cold some days, but some days the fridge was hot.
- our room was facing the busy street and the big hotel's loading docks were noisy first thing in the morning. This was just our room and didn't bother us too much since the AC provided white noise to block it and we were up early to avoid the crowds at all the tourist sites anyway.

All in all, a great hotel! We would recommend it to all, especially if you are looking to stay on mainland time and rise early!

Room Tip: Rooms ending in 01 have balcony (601 had ocean view) but face noisy street.

This is a great hotel in the midst of the craziness. We stayed 3 nights in January 2013 and really enjoyed it. The front desk staff were all professional, welcoming, and helpful. The bartender was FANTASTIC!!! She mixed the best drinks on Oahu! And she was such a sweetheart, too! One evening we even chatted with the hotel's General Manager at the bar.
I highly recommend

Room Tip: Pay for the beach view, it's worth it!

Dwarfed by huge, big-name hotels, the modestly-priced, Hotel Renew is close enough to Waikiki beach that a decent snorkeling opportunity is just a five-minute walk from the front door. Our room was pleasing to the eye, but small enough that creativity was required for two of us to be able to open our bags at the same time. The bed was very good, and the staff unfailingly helpful. When we wanted a car for a couple of day’s tourism, the desk set us up with Enterprise, a short walk away, for $51/day. The hotel wants $25 per night for valet parking, but the front desk pointed us to nearby streets where parking is free 24/7.

A couple of downsides: Our room came with a balcony affording a bit of ocean view. But the street below is so noisy that we never wanted to use it. For the same reason, we never left our windows open. The furnishings had a modern look, but we wondered if the interior designers had ever actually occupied the room for a night. The bedside shelf was high enough that I cracked my elbow into it more than once. The bathroom sink was not quite deep enough to prevent water from the high faucet from splashing out. There wasn’t an in-room coffee maker, and free morning coffee was not available till 7AM (an issue if you are a couple of hours jet-lagged). The breakfast bread and pastries were bad (the wife says “awful”). We bought granola parfaits at the ABC store next door. (ABC stores are everywhere!) The staff was nice enough to refrigerate them for us so we could pick them up at the front desk first thing in the morning.

On the whole, it was a decent place to stay. I might research other options though before a return engagement.

Room Tip: Room numbers ending in 01 have a balcony.

Very nice hotel just a block from Waikiki Beach. A very pleasant stay. Nice continental breakfast and front desk was very helpful. Our room had a very nice view of the beach. The hotel provided (gratis) beach chairs and towels - very nice. I could not have asked for a better place to stay. Love the sheets.
