“Great Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 17, 2012

I was very impressed with this hotel. I loved the location. I did a lot of research for this trip and I am so glad I picked this hotel. The view was awesome and it was so close to everything. We could walk to the International market. The beach was right across the street. I was pleasantly surprised with the free breakfast. I was thinking like most places they would offer a stale doughnut but not the case, they had a variety of muffins, bagels, doughnuts, cereal, fresh fruit and yogurt to choose from. Juice, coffee, milk and tea were also offered. We had no need to go anywhere else for breakfast and you could eat by the pool too if you chose to. They had offered a workout center that I did not use because we walked so much everyday. They had two onsight places to eat and a store. Several other shops connected to the building. They offered free dvd rentals. We took advantage one night and rented a movie. The pool water was a little cold and I must say I was surprised it was salt water. We always had clean towels and I would stay here again if I ever went back.

Room Tip: Get a high floor in the back or front for the view.

It was our first time in Hawai'i and this is the first hotel we stayed at. The Aston Waikiki Beach is great and provides a young atmosphere. The beach views are amazing and of course better as you go higher up on the floors. We were on the 19th floor and it was gorgeous. The porch/Lanai is not very big but nice enough to step out and take in the view. The room was not as upscale but still above par. PS3's are included in the rooms and they offer free movies and video games at a kiosk in the lobby. The elevator system was cool, you have to swipe your room key and put in the floor your on and it tells you which elevator will take you there. The hotel is located right across the street from the beach. On one side of the beach there is a wall to withstand the crash of the strong current and waves, creating an area of ocean water that is very nice to swim and play in. The buffet breakfast is fantastic every morning. They provide a lunch bag in your room, which you can take with you to breakfast and stuff as much as you please then go enjoy the beach or pool area. Breakfast consists of a lot of pastries! However, there is also bagels, fresh fruit, miso soup, cereal, and other things to please your appetite. Everyone usually sits out by the pool where there is a musician/singer and hula dancer performing soft music as you enjoy your morning. The tiki restaurant at the hotel provides live music every night and the food is pretty good. The hotel is situated in a great spot. There are trolleys and transport vans that pass by continuously right in front to take you where you want to go. Small stores and restaurants were close by. Definitely had a great time here!

We have just gotten back from a 2 week holiday staying at the Aston Waikiki Beach Hotel and it was awesome as always! We arrived in Honolulu at 7am, couldn't check in until 3pm so we left our bags with the parking valet and went next door to Lulu's fir breakfast then went out and about for the day. There was a bit of a line up to check in but that's always expected and it didn't take too long. Reception staff were very friendly. We stayed in an ocean front room with two double beds for myself, my wife and two small kids. The room was a bit small for all of us but very comfortable and had an amazing view of diamond head and waikiki beach which was great to wake up to. The room was clean and tidy, only bad thing was the toilet stopped flushing but after a call to room service a service guy rocked up in about 10 mins which was very impressive and fixed it no worries. Beds were very comfortable especially the pillows and room service was always good, we left a $5 tip each day. The free breakfast was good, not too much on offer but did the trick. All in all our stay here was excellent with no complaints, would stay here again and again.

Truth be told, we did book this hotel through Hotwire, so that might have explained the room disappointment... but it was listed as a 3.5star hotel when I chose it. And I must disagree.
We typically book from the 3.5star ratings, and are always pleased. Not this time.

1) Our room was shoved in to the corner, right next to the Coconut Club -- this is where events happen in the evenings, eg. weddings, with drunk people loitering outside my door. Thankfully they try to get them out by 11pm, but then there's the clean up crew. Made for a loud evening.

2) The continental breakfast is a bit chaotic, with everyone lining up to grab boat fulls of mediocre food, and then fighting to find a place to eat.

3) For a hotel where you can pay >$250/night, they actually charge you to a mandatory $10 fee to use the safe in your room, and other "ammenities" we didn't even want.

4) Our room was shabby. Our faucet not only leaked but if you lifted the tap wrong, you ended up with water everywhere. The headboard was falling off the wall. The carpets looked old. And the sheets weren't fitted or large enough, so by morning you were touching the mattress (which to me is just gross).

5) I always try to put one good thing about the place I stay: location, location, location. Cross the street and you are on the beach.

Room Tip: Get a room facing the beach, or maybe the pool. If you are on the other side of the hotel, you have...

We spent one night here as a pre cruise hotel. The location is GREAT - at the north end of the hotel zone, with the beach across the street, a park and the zoo immediately north, and Diamond Head just beyond that. There is a Starbucks next door (open at 4am!).

The staff is wonderful - everyone is well trained and friendly. The valets are good, and the front desk people (while very busy) were very helpful and friendly.

The rooms are OK - the property is older, but well maintained. The room was comfortable, and the bed was really nice. The common areas are fun and busy - the pool deck has WIFI, and it overlooks the beach from a second story. There is a very good lounge and restaurant on premises that overlooks the beach. We got "breakfast on the beach" - there is a continental breakfast and you get a cooler (in your room) to put food in to take to the beach - we watched the early morning beach goers while we had rolls and coffee, then we took a walk through the beautiful park next door. There is an exercise room, but we did not get to use it.

For a couple of days stay this hotel is GREAT!

The location of this place is great. Across from the beach a bit up the road but not too far from restaurants, shops, etc. The rooms were meant to be queen rooms however the configuration was two smallish beds, this seemed to be the norm but it took up a lot of space and didn't leave a lot of sleeping space for a couple. The breakfast was pretty basic. Overall a pretty good place to stay.

Stayed here for five years and nothing has been replaced. Same bedspreads. Same used furniture. Crummy bathroom surround tubs. Well :used pillows that smell...come on!!! But worst yet is the New dvd playstation is well hidden cost of $15.00 day they charge at checkout. Everyone has to pay is just pure BS. Front desk tells you any complaints? Go to website....really?
