“EXCELLENT VALUE”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 4, 2014

Soild value with free (and good) breakfast buffet. Free wi-fi. No charge for toll free numbers. Clean. Mini-fridge. Large TV. No DVD. Short 2 blocks walk to calm protected beach. Ask for a room that looks down on a side street NOT a main street which are noisy. Short ride to Diamond head - do it - $7 to park then 2 hour or so round trip hike to the top with fantastic views - take lunch (from breakfast buffet). Don't do it if you have probs with your legs. Includes a tunnel and lots of steps near the top.

Room Tip: overlook a side street NOT a main street.

Staying one block away from the main strip will knock the resort fee from your bill. The informed traveler who books a non-refundable, 21 day advance reservation, will find that the price will be 20% lower than comparable like the Hyatt Regency, or the Marriott Resort, right across the street.

While the numbers are by no means a bargain, they do provide great comfort given the generous amenities, like breakfast and free Wi-fi. The location is just perfect: you are close enough to the beach, but tucked away so as not to be too bothered by the noise.

The staff is professional and extremely friendly. The style is bed and breakfast boutique instead of corporate procedural. Service is timely and efficient. Housekeeping replenished all the needed accessories.

Upgraded suite had a view of Diamondhead. Room was spacious and uncluttered. Mini-living room couch and table is separated from the bed area by a tinted glass partition. The refrigerator was working fine.

The desk is large enough for a computer and paperwork to spare. Strategic electrical plugs are built into the lampshade.

Free Wi-fi is right for basic surfing needs. It had an average download speed of 150kb/sec and maxing out at 175kb/sec. A 2-tiered option for a faster download could be a good paying menu choice.

Layout is well-thought out. More LED lighting could increase the hipness quotient.

It was overall a very satisfying stay.

We stayed for 4 nights at the end of January 2014 and were initially disappointed that we were put in a small bedroom with only one bed, when we had specifically booked a room with 2 queen beds. The reception staff were unable to move us and seemed to have no record of the beds we had requested. Not a great start - but seems to be a consistent theme when booking using booking.com.

However, apart from the room, we thought the location was great for the price, and the hotel was clean and well maintained. We also liked the breakfast, even though it could be a little windy in some of the seats. I am sure there there are better hotels right on the beach, but for the price this is a great place to stay for the convenience of a short walk to Waikiki beach which was just amazing!

This hotel is kept very clean, and the staff was very helpful. Did not like having to pay the $28 for valet parking as the other parking was full, EVERY TIME. The breakfast was quite good although I would like to see more hot choices.

Aloha Stanice,
Mahalo for your review. Parking is limited in Waikiki and we regret that you were not given more options when searching for a spot. We are happy that you found our team to be very accommodating during your stay, but regret if our breakfast options fell short of exceeding expectations. Please be assured that our skillets offer a wide variety of freshly prepared hot breakfast options, such as our Signature Breakfast Sandwiches, as well as Low-Carb options, plus waffles, pancakes and Cinnamon French Toast.

This was a great hotel!.Informed at check in that we were upgraded to mountain view room. We stayed in a room with 2 queen beds and it was over the top!. Had a sitting area with sofa bed that was separarted from the beds by a partition. Gave extra room for my grandson to play. The beds were super comfortable. No resort fee, which most hotels in the area charge. Breakfast was great but after th 4th day the menu repeats.Room was always clean upon our return. The staff was great. Responded quickly to our requests. No need to call front desk for stuff. just text and they respond quickly!! LOVED this option! Pool is small but the beach is 5 minute walk away. If you have children this area for the beach is great as there is a break there,so it's a little safer.Had some activities for kids like making leis for free! We did not rent a car since it was our first time there and we were fine. The hotel has an agreement with Charlies Taxi for $29 flat rate fee to/from airport. Across the street at the Marriot you can catch shuttles to just about any attraction you may book and the bus pick up is nearby also.5 minute walk to zoo. Shopping and eateries nearby. Away from noisy night life but easy walk to that area. Yes, there are homeless prople laying around on sidewalk, which was surprising but they didn't seem to bother the visitors.This was a GREAT location for our stay and I would stay again!

Room Tip: Higher floors have better views but if it's windy you can here the wind blowing.

Aloha vacaGloria,
We are happy to hear that you were upgraded upon arrival! What a nice surprise. Our cozy corners are great to six back and chill out, and provides additional space for the family to gather or play with young children. Glad you enjoyed our text messaging platform at the hotel...this has proven to a be a very successful tool for our guests. Many of our guests truly appreciate our partnership with Charlie's Taxi, and consistently take advantage of their affordable transportation rate to and from the airport. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back again soon!

Overall great experience. Hotel was clean. Staff was friendly. Only 5 minute walk to the beach. Great beach area for small children (there is a breaker in the ocean so no waves). My 2 year old had a great time. Very close walking distance to many shops and restaurants. The breakfast was average considering it's free but that was ok with me considering I didn't want to fill up on breakfast food when I would be eating out for lunch and dinner. The hot food was different every morning. Fresh fruit, yogurt, variety of breads and cereals, and juice. No resort fee.
The only cons were the elevator machinery was loud and could be heard from our room and the self-park garage was full so we had to valet park which was pricey.
I would definitely stay here again and recommend this hotel to friends and family.

Id like to know the room type when others were commenting on rooms being large as, I stayed in a studio and it was incredibly small! The breakfast was poor quality and not much variety. The 24/7 menu needs more options. The location is good. Close to the beach and walking distance to most amenities however there are a lot of homeless people on this section of Waikiki. Next time I stay in Honolulu I would choose a condo rental instead. Some staff are great and others task orientated instead of customer driven. Not my favorite place.

Room Tip: Ocean Views are obstructed by buildings here even on the 11th floor.

Aloha charwarner,
Mahalo for your review. It seems that we missed an opportunity to show you just how spacious the guest rooms at Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach can be, and the wide variety of breakfast options available to guests on a daily basis. We only ask for another opportunity to showcase ourselves and to support what many of our repeat/loyal guests have experienced while staying with us. Second chances in the service industry are hard to come by, but hope to regain your faith in us!
