“Great deal”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 9, 2012

We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights prior to our Hawaii Cruise on NCL. Great value as you get free hot breakfast which was usually one item that was featured for the day-ex: biscuit breakfast sandwich and pancakes the next. Nice assortment of fresh fruit, cereals, toast etc. Did I mention it was FREE-so can't complain about it. The room also came with free WIFI. It was a couple blocks away from the beach but that was fine with us. The room was updated and clean which is very important to me. The staff were very friendly. We were able to leave our luggage with them as our cruise wasn't till later that evening. We decided we wanted to hang at the beach a little longer! We were on the 4th floor and did not find it too noisy. We're heavy sleepers anyways.

we stayed at this hotel for one night in Dec. 2012.

Pros:
The hotel is 2-3 blocks away from the Waikiki beach, which you can take a stroll over and enjoy swimming in the protected area in Waikiki beach. Great for families with small kids.
The hotel also offers free breakfast: sausage & egg bagels, variety of juices and cereals, oatmeal and rice.
The hotel is very clean and remodeled with modern furnishings
Cons:
Parking is 25 dollars per day. We had an incident with the valet where we called for getting our car. The front desk picked up the call and agreed to relay the message. We waited 30 minutes and haven’t seen our car. Finally talked to the Valet service. They were not aware of our request.
We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds. The room setting is configured like a studio. The sink is in the same area where the bed is without a closed door, which was not very good for families having early risers.
The bathroom configuration is very crammed - you can barely squeeze in to use the toilet and bath tub.

This Hyatt exceeded all my expectations. It was our first trip to Honolulu and I couldn't have asked for a more welcoming hotel staff. Being Canadian and working in a hotel in Vancouver, I know a few things about great hospitality, but boy did the staff at the Hyatt blow me away. On top of that; the rooms were modern and spotless, the breakfast was delicious and the location was perfect. Great job!

The rooms are compact. That's not to say small. They are nice and adequate. We found them just right for our stay. Like the caption says, you won't spend much of your awake time in a hotel room when on Waikiki, so why spend extra? The staff was very courteous and helpful.

Have searched and visited many Waikiki hotels for a family of 6 and based on bedroom configurations, I recommend this hotel for a family of 5 or 6 as the best value. Whereas other hotels will require two rooms, this hotel you can do with one room saving hundreds of dollars. More details on this is found on the Hawaii newsletter at prasadandassociates.com This hotel also has an incredible self serve breakfast featuring bowls of fresh pineapples and great coffee! It is only a 2 block walk from the beaches of Waikiki - just perfect!

Stayed in hotel for 15 nights. Got room on 10th floor. Big LCD TV. Breakfast ok, didn't eat much. Birds at breakfast are problem, but they're problem everywhere in Waikiki.
Staff friendly and very helpful. Nice small fitness. Loved complimentary wifi in the rooms.
I would go back next time.

Room Tip: Ask for recently remodelled room.

Great location, amazingly thoughtful service, a wonderful room...well, just go there.
We stayed 4 nights in the Hyatt Place and absolutely loved it. The room had a nice ocean view (across the tops of a couple buildings, but still nice..), was spacious and well organized, and it was of course quite new.
The staff were helpful, courteous and very friendly. You felt as if being welcomed into their home.
I've been to Honolulu twice before, and this was my best hotel experience.
Enjoy!
