“First Time Family Trip to Honolulu - Airline Rate”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

I booked the hotel about a week before departure. Res agent recommended the Superior room & request a queen & twin bed. This worked great for us. We have 3 kids, 16,12 & 10. So this worked out great for us using the sleeper sofa. Great view of the ocean & a short walk to the beach. Kitchen was great & used quite often. Help cut down on our food bill. :-). Rooms were clean & no issues. I got a great rate as an Airline employee and would highly recommend . Only hang up was the $15 fee resort fee that I did not find out about till I got here. But parking is only $15 as well compared to $35 at other hotels. The Kids did enjoy renting the games & dvds so it was ok(but it does add up). I liked that they have a play station in the room . Kept us from bringing ours. Overall I was pleased & would hope to stay here again. I may be staying for a while if I can;t get off the island. The ups & down of flying stand by. Aloha.

Room Tip: Ask for a higher floor & the type of beds you want. Facing the ocean is a great view .

Our first glimpse inside our room of the breath-taking view of lights on the mountainside set the tone for our 2 week stay. Our room 3711 was perfect, starting with its clean and modern appearance, the full kitchen with nice eating bar, comfy living room, roomy bedroom with a comfortable king bed and a good sized bathroom that had a nice sized counter and a shower with great water pressure. Having a washer/dryer on our floor was very handy too. Everything we needed was here and if not, all we had to do is ask. The mountainside view was spectacular at night and interesting and pleasant in the day with it's homes up the mountainside, golf course below that provided a large green belt, then the Ala Wai Canal with its canoes that sailed daily. We enjoyed breakfasts on the lanai and if early enough, the sunrises were splendid. We experienced friendly and efficient service from all the staff, from the front desk, housekeeper and concierge who arranged a tour and rental car and the management staff who made our visit very special. The location is perfect, just two blocks from the beach, one block to the bus and close to the park, zoo and aquarium. We found everything about this hotel was perfect and we have not one single complaint about anything at all. We're highly recommending the Aston Waikiki Sunset to our friends and family. Thank you for helping to make our anniversary holiday so wonderful!

Stayed in a one bedroom one bath unit on the 34th floor. The unit was very clean with a great ocean view. Very convenient to everything on Waikiki beach which is only two blocks away.

The only concern that I have is having to pay a resort fee. Just add it to the rate!!!!!!!!!!

The hotels are trying to copy the airlines....

Thank you for chosing to stay with us at the Aston Waikiki Sunset and we are pleased to see that you enjoyed your time spent at our property. Due to contracting with our travel partners and other acounts, we are unable to include the daily amenity fee into the room rate. Our $15.00 + tax amenity fee provides you with the use of DVD movies and games, use of the Playstation 2 game console, WiFi and wired high speed internet in room service, daily newspaper, coffee and tea daily, in room safe and local and toll free calls and is very reasonable as compared to other Waikiki properties. Mahalo!

We read some reviews that suggested this might be a bit of a 'budget' hotel, and we weren't expecting great things, but we were very pleasantly surprised! We had a 2 bedroom apartment with full kitchen. Yes, you must pay $15 per day for wifi, newspaper play station etc even if you don't use it, but our beds were made every day (even re-made after we made our own!) and our towels replaced daily. The apartment was spotlessly clean, and although small, was fine for our needs. We were in Room 2113, (20th floor-there is no floor 13) had no trouble with lift-noise, and had fantastic views.The ONLY criticism I'd have is that the room with the double bed that we had was very small. ie you can only just walk around the bed and there is nowhere is leave a suitcase out- you have to put it in the wardrobe. It wasn't a problem for us, but if you are a large or tall person or couple you may find it a bit of a nuisance. We used the pool alot, it was great. In terms of location, this accommodation is 2 blocks from the beach and one block from main bus routes. All a very easy short walk.

I had a great time there. The only problem was that the room we booked was supposed to have 2 tiwn beds with a full, and we only had a full and a couch bed. It wasnt a bad hotel at all. It was very nice and kept clean. The pool was closed for the first two days we were there and the laundry room was on every floor so it was very convienet. Everybody was nice there and were never mean. It was at a nice location close to the beach and you could pretty much walk anywhere you wanted. Great hotel. I would for sure reccommend it to another person who would go to Oahu Hawaii.

Room Tip: Make sure you check to see if they have the right room before you spend all the money to go and dont...

My wife and I decided to get out of the rain and take a long weekend to Honolulu without breaking the bank. We chose the Aston based on some of the previous traveler's reviews and they were accurate. If you're looking for a 5 star resort on the beach with great views, a great lobby and room service this is not the hotel for you. If you are looking for a clean hotel with a full kitchen and fully outfitted at a decent price, this would be the hotel for you. We've stayed at the 5 star hotels in Waikiki and dropped $200 on dinner. Buying dinner at Food Pantry and eating on the deck looking at the mountains was worth every penny. A couple blocks to the ocean and friendly staff.

Room Tip: Higher floors with Diamond Head view
