“An Oasis in the City”
Reviewed December 18, 2013

Wonderful, is the best description I can find for this hotel and its staff. From the first minute when we received such a warm and comprehensive reception from Kimberly, to the last minute when we sadly departed, everything and everyone contributed to an excellent stay. The hotel manager can be very proud of this team of exceptional people. If you are looking for a quiet place in Waikiki, away from the main buzz, but just a short walk to the park and the beach, this is the only location to consider. The modern, quiet, comfortable rooms, great WiFi, excellent buffet breakfast and the all-round service make for the perfect escape. It truly is an oasis in the city!

Room Tip: The main Diamond Tower is probably best. Anything above the 5th floor should have a decent view.

I am a Hyatt Gold Passport member and was very pleased with this hotel. I used the valet parking, something I usually hate. But in a big city you are not always in control. It took the valet just a couple minutes to get the car. Nice group of guys. The housekeeping staff was friendly and did a great job. The best deal in Honolulu must be the free breakfast. I looked for a tip jar and didn't see one. The staff keeps the eating area clean. The food was good and a great variety of juices, coffee, cereals and hot eggs and either bacon or sausage. Items change daily. Stayed on the18th floor. Elevator was fast, no long waits. Sat on the room balcony and enjoyed our wine. We had a "mountain view" which was fine. The hotel is in a big city, a block from the beach so don't expect great views from your room, but you aren't paying Ocean Vista prices either. We don't spend much time in the room. Easy walk to the beach and shopping.

We stayed at this hotel for four nights and it was a great experience. The service was excellent, the staff was always willing to help and make you feel at home. Loved the breakfast, room and location. There are better hotels in Hawaii but for the price, this is one of the best options in Oahu. I highly recommend this hotel for those looking for a great deal.

We stayed at the Hyatt for only one-night but during a visit to the island of Oahu that included a horrible stay at one property (the PK) and a first-class experience at another (Aulani). The Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach was a perfect blend of the two and where we would likely stay were we to return for a lengthier visit to Waikiki only.

We were upgraded to a deluxe city view room, which we understand significantly increases the square footage. Even though the room was city view, we could see ocean from the lanai, which was a nice bonus. The room was clean and the beds comfortable. There was a little seating area, which was nice but the table was this tiny ottoman so not a good place for eating or drinking. The provided breakfast was not amazing but was not horrible. plenty of hot meats and pastries and usually some egg choice. If you care about your coffee, you will need to get it elsewhere.

One tip: have a person in your party take the tray in your room down to the breakfast and stock up on goodies that can take you beyond breakfast.

For the price, I was expecting a bit more. The front desk staff were friendly and efficient. The location is good, and the free wi-fi and free breakfast are some of the good things about the hotel. What I was a bit disappointed about was the small size of our ocean view room, and that the air-conditioning only cooled so much. It was very hot when we stayed there, so we were sweating the entire time even with the air-conditioning set on the lowest temp we could get it. The free breakfast sounded nice, but beware as it's somewhat of a madhouse with screaming kids and families everywhere grabbing food like it's going to disappear.

Aloha 1Foodie1,
Mahalo for your review. We regret that your guest room did not exceed expectations. We do offer "deluxe rooms" with more square footage that may be a better fit for you should you decide to return. When dining on the 3rd floor is not an option, we recommend using the in-room trays to carry out breakfast and enjoy in the comfort of your own guest room. We appreciate your feedback on our friendly staff!

We stayed at the Hyatt for the first week of November, with the intention of just chilling out for a week. We found the hotel perfect for this. To go through the things I would want to know: Location, two minute walk to the beach but off the main road. Our balcony did not have the best view (3rd floor) but we were on the same floor as the breakfast. The room was OK, nice bed, shower only, but roomy enough. As an FYI, if you sat on our balcony you needed to turn the aircon off as it pumped warm air onto the balcony (unless you want a heated balcony!). The buffet breakfast (included) was OK and had the added advantage that you could take it back to your room on the supplied trays. The staff were always welcoming and could not help enough. BTW, the hotel will supply beach towels FOC so no need to fill up you case with them. Simply take them in the morning and return at night so you always have fresh one's. So with the rooms, the staff and the extra's we found it good value and would return. If there is a downside, it would be the open bar area which is not that welcoming as it's on a main walk through, but with all the bars in Waikiki, it's not an issue!!

After looking at various hotel options in Waikiki, the Hyatt Place seemed to be the best value. Self-parking was $18 (a steal compared to other hotels at $25/night) with valet parking at $25.

Our room on the 18th floor was very very clean -- everything looked quite new still and the carpet was clean enough for our infant to crawl around on. The views aren't much given all the hotel towers nearby but we didn't really care about that. The staff are super friendly and I felt like I was hanging out with friends!

Another plus was the skillet breakfast. Tasty and just enough variety that we were still enjoying it 5 days later. All in all, a very pleasant stay.
