“Great and pleasant!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 11, 2014

We went to Hawaii for 3 nights and 4 days. We normally stay at the Trump hotel but this some we stayed at Hotel Renew and it was not bad at all, it was actually pleasant surprisingly. We got greeted by a wet fowel and free glass of pineapple juice. I think that over all this hotel is very modern and despite of it being all the way at the end of the waikiki strip i think that you get what you pay for, the rooms are pretty small also a little on the dusty side but since we were there short we decided to stay here and again it wasn't bad at all.

Room Tip: No pool or gym facilities.

Aloha Mdwildcats,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review of your recent stay here at Hotel Renew by Aston. We are glad that you enjoyed the cold, refreshing island welcome upon arrival, as well as the simplistic and modern style personality that our property possesses. We do in fact boast a rather enviable location at the quieter end of world-famous Waikiki Beach, while still maintaining close proximity to a myriad of shops and restaurants.

Although we do not have pool or gym facilities on property, the Club Renew gives you access to the nearby pools, Jacuzzi and fitness center as part of our extensive amenity package. This also includes in-room wireless internet, aroma concierge, unlimited DVD rentals, daily continental breakfast and Keurig coffee makers.

Thanks again for your wonderful praise. We look forward to welcoming you back to Hotel Renew by Aston in the near future.

Mahalo,

R. Razon.

We stayed two nights at the Renew flying in Hawaii and trying to decompress before boarding our cruise ship. Hotel is very well located, a couple of minutes away from the ocean, on a street that was quiet during our stay. From the moment we walked up the steps, the welcome was pleasant, warm and sincere. Nice lobby, small but tastefully decorated. Our room which was the most economical was very pleasant, two comfortable beds, nice bathroom, good ac, when you use a room to sleep, the view is less important. continental breakfast is included, again a pleasant experience, wifi included and works. what more do you want for a short stay ?

Aloha!

We just returned from 5 days in Oahu and what makes the trip so memorable are the people! Simply hanging out in the Renew Lounge with Kasi making us the BEST drinks and even sharing her dinner with us reminds me of what life is all about! Hotel Renew was incredibly clean, quiet, and modern! Loved being in an area close enough to all the action but far enough to actually interact with people and locals! By far a wonderful experience and at a great price!

Mahalo Renew and especially Kasi for such a wonderful experience!

Staff is super friendly & attentive, super location just a block from the beach. Clean and easy to get around in, no feeling lost in a massive scale hotel. It's a smaller "boutique" type hotel so felt kind of eclectic and New York-y or Euro. I loved that it was smaller and cute, yet we did take advantage of the pool access that they have at the Marriott across the street so our kids could take a little swim in the evening. Free DVD rentals were great for our kids too.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view if it's available.

We were a little worried after some of the reviews we had read but checked in late in the evening after a very long flight to find lovely young women at the front desk. They greeted us with a genuine smile, offered pineapple juice, a fresh scented wash cloth and kindness. They went over location of hotel and benefits including lovely pool and fitness center across the street at the Marriott. They give you a card that permits access. They also offer movies to be watched in room for free and considering the next place we went to wanted 17 dollars for the same movies that was a big benefit. The price is quite reasonable for Honolulu especially one block from Waikiki beach. Room was lovely done in a sort of Asian island feel and up to date as well as very clean. The bed was super comfortable. If I go back I would definitely stay here. They also have a great continental breakfast.

Boutique - modern and clean look is appealing; with 8 rooms per floor and 9 floors, I didn't have to walk for miles to get out the front door
Personable staff - I was greeted with "Aloha" or "Welcome back" every time I walked through the lobby; the door was often held open for me by the bellman; the staff were happy to answer our many questions from topics ranging from buses to car rental; the maid stocked our room with lots of shampoo and soap without us having to ask
Great location - ABC store next door was handy; two doors down were Wolfgang Puck Express, Coldstone Creamery and Subway; less than a block away was the beach
Awesome gym - located in the Mariott Hotel, stocked with first-rate equipment, did not take long to walk to
