“Great place”
Reviewed November 18, 2011

A short walk away from the private beach owned by the Hilton, but there's nothing much to do on that stretch, i would recommend one walk to the public area - there's a lot more stuff going on there, restaurants and pubs and shops. about a 5-10 minute walk from the hotel to the main shopping district (huge forever21, cheesecake factory, tiffany & co, prada etc etc)

small lobby, no breakfast (coffee/tea/water provided) but there's wifi in the lobby so it makes waiting a lot easier. we arrived at the hotel about 6am and we were so grateful they allowed us to check in early at 9am. there was an ihop right next to the hotel so we kept ourselves occupied while they were getting our room ready.

in the room there was only one internet connection (wired) but luckily i was using a mac so we could share the internet. the room wasnt big, but was clean and comfortable. the toilet was clean too. we had 4 people staying in the room but we managed fine. staff were great too, giving us tips on getting to places like the international market place. there was a tour booth right by the elevators too.

if youre heading to pearl harbour, get up early because the free tickets for the general tour are usually snapped up early. its about a 1.5 hr drive down.

dont forget to check out the flea market at the aloha stadium!! its super huge and great place to scour some finds. dont miss out on the luau as well.

I LOVE HAWAI'I!
HANG LOOSE!

This hotel is a great place to stay. The staff was extremely helpful and was quick to give us tips about where to go and what to see. Along with being helpful, they were very friendly and were always wearing a smile. Although it's an older property, the hotel was very clean and well maintained. The ethernet connection in the room was fantastic. High speed and reliable. The room was always made up promptly and in good order. The location is great too. It's just across Ala Moana Blvd. from the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the beach. Also it's just up the block from the Wialana Coffee House, a very good place to eat. Great location and reasonable rates; what's not to like!

Aloha!

Mahalo (thank you) for your review. It is always great to hear that our guests have had a great stay. Thank you also for recognizing the helpfullness of our staff. Most of them have been here for a long time and they have a lot of knowledge of all Hawaii has to offer. As you mentioned, we do have a great location and the beach is only a quick walk across the street by the Hilton Hawaiian Village. And Wailana Coffee House is a nice spot just two doors down and they are open 24 hours a day, so you'll never go hungry!

Again, thank you so much for your business and we look forward to your next visit! Mahalo and Aloha!

From the time we first contacted the Ramada Plaza for information we were incredibly impressed with the staff, especially Joanne. They were extremely accommodating before, during and after our stay. I want to thank them for taking the time to send me the camera I left behind on the counter.
As others have said, the location is perfect, the rooms are clean, and everything worked which is not common in handicap accessible rooms in other hotels. The beds were very comfortable, the drapes pulled completely closed for total privacy, and the new TV’s are great. We were there for 3 nights before a cruise and two nights after, while we were gone the TV’s were replaced. I have to applaud management for keeping this hotel up.
Parking was easy and at $15 a day a relative bargain compare to the $30 the other hotels were charging.
We felt the hotel was a real value, and recommend prepaying through the hotel to get a great price and a good room.
Thanks for everything, we highly recommend your hotel.

Thank you for your wonderful comments! They really are appreciated. Our staff works very hard every day to ensure that each guest has a great experience. And thank you for the comment about the TV's. They really have made a great addition, giving everyone the ability to see TV how it should be seen and as it is probably is seen by many people in their own home. Glad you enjoyed your time with us and hope you will come back for another visit. We'll be waiting for you! Mahalo!

I felt the location for us was just perfect. A quick walk to largest shopping mall , beach and the restaurants, even night time entertainment. The complete staff was friendly, helpful and the room was very clean. The beds were very comfortable and we enjoyed the large flat screen. The deck is wrapped around so you were able to enjoy shade or sun. If you needed to use internet or wifi it was free and down at their beautiful lobby. I felt I did'nt need a car . I would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: corner suite facing beach was sunny and shaded and saw moon during daylight

Have just had a few days at this hotel. Its situated at the quieter end of Waikiki, opposite the Hilton Hawaiian Village. Just a quick walk to the beach, and lots of eating places nearby. The internet and wifi is free, and the rooms are large, clean and nicely decorated, including new flat screen tv's. Service is great, and I would definitely stay here again.

Just got back from 9 nights at the Ramada Plaza Waikiki. Very nice hotel, beautiful lobby, nice rooms. Very comfortable bed and good sized bathroom. Asked for quiet floor and was put on the 15th floor overlooking Ala Moana Blvd. Not sure if it is just these rooms, there are only two that face Ala Moana, but it was very quiet, never heard other guests. While there they installed big screen LCD tvs with much better choice of channels. Very friendly and helpful staff on the front desk, as well as maintenance and maids. We had a car and never had a problem finding a spot to park (we come and go a lot) even tho they do have limited parking (self park only $15 a day which is a bargain). Make sure your car is small, the spaces are tight and parking is an issue all over Waikiki. Wish the A/C had been quieter but this is the norm for most hotel rooms. Right across the street from the Hilton Hawaiian Village so good beach access. This part of Waikiki is much quieter than other spots. Great rate, no complaints.

Room Tip: High floor, facing Ala Moana Blvd.

I'm so glad to hear you had a great stay with us. It's our pledge to strive for excellence in every department and to always do our best to provide a great experience for each and every guest. The new TV's are really a great improvement and with the new HD channels, watching TV has never been better.

Actually, about half of our rooms face Ala Moana Blvd. and the other half face the mountains, so either way, you'll see Hawaii. Again, thanks for staying with us and for sharing your comments. I am confident that others will benefit from your experience.

We booked this hotel for one night only before we left on our NCL cruise. The rooms were neat clean and tidy and the beds were quite comfortable.I prefer to stay down town in Waikiki closer to all that is offered but for one or two nights, the Ramada was convenient to what we wanted. It doesn't have a restaurant attached but there is a Chinese out front ???? a great Greek restaurant across the road and a sport bar with cheap eats just around the corner. Overall an enjoyable stay.

Also, I'm glad you liked our location. It does take care of most things our guests need such as shopping, restaurants, and beach. Looking forward to your return to the Islands!
