Booked for a recent convention and had an excellent stay. When there was a problem with our TV, the front desk sent up a maintenance man promptly, who took care of the issue immediately and courteously. Only issue was that I wasn't able to check in early (although I saw several other people receive keys while I was waiting). However, in the hotel's defense, I was there about 45 minutes before the official check-in time. Front desk staff was generally pleasant. I agree with an earlier review that it was somewhat loud at night, since you're on a major roadway (we were on the 7th floor). I didn't necessarily have difficulty sleeping, perhaps because a roommate put on a white noise app on her phone during the night, but it may be an issue for some. Walk to the convention was easy and quick if using the back entrance (maybe 10 minutes). Wireless Internet quality was good, and rooms were nice and clean. The hotel prides itself on minimal environmental impact, which I thought was great. Be aware that there is no elevator to the ground level (which makes carrying luggage to/from the street difficult), and the elevator between floors is quite slow. It's also kind of in between downtown Honolulu and Waikiki, so expect a long walk (but doable) or bus ride to either.
