We stayed in a 1 bedroom apartment for 6 days. It is located near busy Kuhio Ave, where many buses pass by. We took the buses to airport, aquarium, bishop museum, downtown, Ala Moana, etc. Very convenient and save on taxi fares. Canal view is nice, but ask for full view, because there are rooms that have full view, and there are rooms like ours that can only see a small portion of the canal. I didn't specify clearly, so can't blame them. The room has an adequate kitchen, but a few items were missing. Also some cutleries are a bit old. Once sofa bed is opened, the living room does not have much space for walking. There is a laundry basket provided, and it was very helpful to me for collecting the clothes at their coin-operated washer and dryer at the P3 level. Maid service was daily and good, clearing our rubbish and food waste promptly. They also have a pool, and a fitness room with a treadmill, a bicycle and a sauna room. I like the cultural activities such as staff singing and lei making that they organized. There is also a vending machine and a tour desk in the lobby. The front desk staff were professional and helpful, but I disagree that everyone is friendly. Some can do better with a smile and greeting when guests pass by. But what stand out is still its location, walking distance to many eateries, shops, international market, beach, etc. Yet far away to have a quiet environment. I would recommend this hotel for families on holiday.
