We stayed at Hotel Renew for 5 nights over Thanksgiving weekend. It was our second visit to the hotel and we really didn't notice much change since it has changed ownership other than the lobby check in desk was more modern. We were warmly welcomed on check in and the management sent up a bottle of wine for us which was a nice touch as it was Thanksgiving. This hotel is perfectly located and very quiet. We love this hotel.
We like to find hotels with few children so as to have a more relaxing vacation and the Renew did not disappoint. We had a room high up, facing the ocean. The hallways get a little warm but the room itself was very easy to control temperature. The housekeeping staff kept our room spotlessly clean. Love the crisp fresh sheets every day and the attention to detail. Thank you housekeeping.
I find the staff very accommodating and friendly. I love being able to go to the front desk and get towels or beach chairs. They are always available to answer questions or provide directions or help. They printed out our boarding passes for the continuation of our trip to Maui.
The breakfast buffet had a bowl of fresh fruit that was replenished when needed. It was like a continental breakfast with fruit. There were carafes of both decaf & regular coffee. Rozanne Perry was assisting with the breakfast and she was so sweet and kind to us, always friendly and personable. What a special employee! She even brought a recipe for us one morning because we told her my husband had a favorite Hawaiian dessert he liked. We will definitely stay here again when in Honolulu.
My only complaint would be the coffee in the rooms and the kind the hotel uses for breakfast. It really is awful. Surely with all that Kona coffee close by they could find a better blend. Please, please, please! See you next year on our way to Maui again.
