We had 24 hours in Honolulu before flying on to Chicago from Australia and I booked this hotel as we had stayed at the Outrigger Reef a couple of years ago and believed it would be of a similar quality. Unfortunately, on arrival we discovered it was on a different scale and not up to our expectations.
When we booked in we were given a room in another building. We started on the long trek to the room and decided we didn't want to stay so far away from reception so we returned and were happy to wait until a room became available. We were told it could take a few hours but as soon as we had eaten breakfast, we were given our room. It was quite comfortable though the air conditioner was very noisy. This is an old hotel and the air conditioners do need to be replaced.
We discovered that there isn't anywhere to eat in the hotel at lunchtime and for the evening meal we had to take the shuttle to the Best Western Plaza Hotel which apparently is a sister hotel where we had a hamburger. This was not quite what we expected and it wasn't a good start to our 5 week trip. Luckily, once we left Honolulu things did pick up.
We did sit around the pool for a couple of hours but it wasn't anything special not as I had imagined when looking at the photos of the hotel.
The shuttle next morning left as soon as we went downstairs which was a bonus though we did have to wait at least 30-40 minutes for it when we first arrived in Honolulu after a long tiring flight.
