Big mahalos for your recent trip to Hawaii and for choosing to stay at The Equus! We are pleased to hear that Yoshi was able to assist you with your needs, and provide service beyond your expectations. It was our pleasure to host you, and we look forward to having you again in the near future!
We had a great time at equus. We checked in late due to an extended layover and they were very nice so late. We missed out on the fresh pineapple juice but they got us a different day. The front desk people were very helpful, even letting us use the microwave once! The house keeping staff were great too! We used their services to book a couple activities and they found us the Best spa!!! Our hotel room was the cleanest we've had in a long time. Small, but nice. Bed was Sooooo comfy! Only downside was the small shower. The ac cooled the room off really fast. Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Very close to shopping and the beach too.
Many mahalos for your review and taking the time to share the details of your visit. We greatly appreciate your feedback and apologize that the showers were a bit small for your liking. Please let us know the next time you visit, and we will be sure you experience our 1 bedroom suite which has double the bathroom space and 2 luxurious rooms to stretch out in.
Thank you again for choosing to stay with us, we look forward to hosting you again in the future!
Stayed here for 2 nights on the ninth floor with a glimpse of the sea. The room was very clean, quite large with super comfortable beds and a good sized bathroom with hot, strong m!shower. Staff were friendly and helpful and our luggage was stored as we arrived prior to check in time. Other reviewers have complained about the entrance steps but a staff member was there to carry our bags. Great place to stay if you want to be away from the busyness of Waikiki but only a short walk or bus ride away. Close to Ala Moana shopping centre and the lovely and much less crowded Ala Moana beach. An eatery called "Goofy Cafe and Dine" over the road on Ala Moana Blvd. Is a great place for breakfast.
Thank you for your review and recent stay at The Equus. It is great to hear you enjoyed your time with us and the rooms, services, and location were to your liking. We are ideally located as you mentioned, on the west end of Waikiki with easy access to Ala Moana Center and Beach Park as well as the beginning of Waikiki Beach (the award winning Kahanamoku beach!). We are pleased you had a positive time discovering the area and we look forward to inviting you back in the future.
Great Location without a heave price tag.
Limited on site parking about 8 spots @$20 a day but the 24/7 public parking across the road charge $20 all day and only $7 for 10 hours which works for us for our daily 07:00 departure and return late every night.
Close the local shopping mall and good food court at half price most store around 21:00 :-)
Many mahalos for taking the time to review your stay and provide excellent feedback about the area. We are happy to hear you enjoyed the area, and that the parking worked out well for you. We enjoyed the beautiful photos you posted, and appreciate you adding to the information available for your fellow travelers.
Mahalo, and we look forward to your return!
I have been coming to Oahu for the past three years for business. The hotel is located in a perfect spot. Blocks from the Ala Moana Beach Park and Shopping, If you like to walk or jog along the Ala Wai Canal, that is just around the corner. Rooms are comfortable, some with balcony some without. If you come and stay here you will be greeted by some super friendly staff and an chilled glass of fresh pineapple juice. You will need it after your long flight. The past three years, Kao, has made sure I am comfortable. Kao remembered me last year and this year when I drove up the driveway. They really make you feel like 'Ohana (family). I will be back for year number 4.
Big mahalos for your continued support! We greatly appreciate your efforts in reviewing your past visits, and your loyalty to our family's hotel. We are pleased to have you as part of our Equus 'ohana and look forward to serving you for many more years to come.
A hui hou!
We stayed for 2 weeks at the Equus.
Positives: Good location, not that close to Waikiki but still walkable. Very close to Ala Moana beach which is quieter than Waikiki beaches. Also near to Ala Moana Centre which pretty much has all the shops that Waikiki has. Room was decent size and clean. Shower and A/C worked well. Housekeeping was efficient although could be late some days. Wifi had okay speeds in the room.
Negatives: Noise levels were very high due to outside traffic - almost unbearable in morning rush hour (we were on third floor).
Reception staff although friendly were at times incompetent. We booked a double room but were given a twin room because the staff at front desk thought we were a party of three rather than two. He later admitted it was because another person was standing behind us (subtle racism I guess as the person behind was asian).
The same person at front desk also said not to worry about parking and to speak to him on the day when we had the car. We did this but he then said we should have made a reservation beforehand as parking was limited and was full.
Safety deposit box in the room requires an actual key from front desk which costs $50 if you lose it.
Overall this hotel is good value for money. It would be a lot better if the person at front desk actually gave useful information and if the rooms had better sound proofing.
Thank you for your review- we appreciate every opportunity to improve our services and take each of your suggestions seriously and will do our best to make the necessary changes. In regards to the noise levels- we apologize for the inconvenience it may have caused you. Waikiki is a bustling city, so there is definitely more traffic noise then expected. We do our best to accommodate our guests by offering sleep kits, however if this is not sufficient then we move rooms if possible.
I apologize for the miscommunication regarding parking, this is our mistake and we apologize for the inconvenience. We are aware that this is an ongoing issue, and are resolving this by introducing valet parking for our guests in order to make it more convenient for everyone. We are sorry that this was not in place during your visit, and would be happy to offer this to you upon your return.
We invite you to return to stay with us again in the future so that you might have an improved experience and see that your feedback has provided us valuable changes to improve our services.
