If you have a few days in Hawaii, there for business or family matters and not really doing the big tourist Hawaii thing, then this hotel is an ideal location with very reasonable prices.
I had been to the Ala Moana hotel in the past, to dine, dance, or have drinks (way back in the day I even worked at the night club there, Rumours) so when I returned to Honolulu to attend a wedding there in early December, I was very comfortable staying at this hotel. First I had a rate of 119 per night (AAA) discount. Jean, the front receptionist upgraded the room to accomodate two adults. There was a lanai that opened up with a partial view of the water had to lean over) and then there was the city view of the night lights. Nothing spectacular with the room but way above my expectations for 100 a night. The bed was scrupmtious! I really slept well there and I have a very nice tempurpic at home.
THere was an empty mini refrigerator and a coffee pot for use. The room was so quiet-loved that! You can walk to Waikiki-it is close enough. Also close to the bus lines if you needed (to get the UH). What I would like to go is eat at the local restaurants all within walking distance. Korean, Japanese, Chinese, and even fast food -Zippys!!!- at the mall. Ala Moana beach park is across the street but it is a bit of a walk there and not safe at night. If you like to walk like I do (an walk off all the yummy local food) then you can do an early morning or sunset stroll to the the beach. Ala Moana is a great beach for families with young children or those who are not super strong swimmers). There is a pool there but we didn't use it. you need groceries, Don Quixote near by as well as a Wal Mart for getting inexpensive items, like water, shampoo, macadamia nuts to take home. If you like to shop, which I do when I am on vacation, the mall is right across the way. Had my make up done at Sephora, bought my son a suit and Macy's, got a hair cut and was ready to have a blast at the wedding.
I will be going back to the Ala Moana Hotel to visit the city and then may be hopping to an outer island for that more tropical Hawaiian vacation .
