We recently stayed here for 3 nights. Our room had a view of Waikiki beach. The hotel is one block from the beach and convenient for shopping, swimming, the zoo and public transportation. The buses that go to the airport and Pearl Harbor are right down the block.
The room was very clean and comfortable albeit a bit small however that was not an issue for us....I even found room to work out. Room furnishings were modern. Our room had two double beds that were comfortable and had many pillows. The room also had a minifridge where we kept fruit we bought at the nearby farmer's market. The room also had a flat screen tv, many lights that can all be controlled by panels near the beds, robes, a working safe and a small chair.
The bathroom was very clean and stocked with shampoo, conditioner, bar and gel bath wash and lotion. There were many towels. Water pressure was ok but not great.
The hotel has a free breakfast every morning in the lobby. Get there early because seating is very limited. Breakfast items included pineapple juice, coffee, tea, various fruit pastries, fresh cut fruit, blueberry and plain muffins and mini croissants, as well as butter and cream cheese.
One of the days we were there the hotel had a managers reception in the evening where they gave the adult guests a complimentary alcoholic cocktail, in my case a pineapple coconut mojito that tasted great! They also gave us a bowl of assorted salted nuts. They even made my son a nonalcoholic version of the mojito that he enjoyed.
The hotel provides beach towels and chairs at the front desk.
I forgot to mention that upon arrival we were given cold glasses of pineapple juice and cold towels. Staff were very nice during our stay. For good cheap food nearby I highly suggest Me's Bbq a few blocks away and Teddy's Bigger Burger around the block.
