I booked the Hotel Renew for the location and because it was recently renovated and managed by Aston. The best things about the hotel was the location and service. The hotel is only a few blocks from the beach and is closer to the Honolulu Zoo side of the Waikiki Strip. The service was friendly and attentive and the Happy Hour was fun. The biggest disappointment was the room. I paid for an ocean view and I could see the ocean several blocks away through several buildings. The room was very dark and depressing. I would dread going back to the room because of the ambience. I felt like was in a Hawaii jail cell but with a nice window to see the ocean. If you are only concerned about location then you might be ok with this hotel otherwise you might “renew” elsewhere.
