My family and I stayed at Hyatt Place Waikiki and found it to be quite clean, safe and convenient. Approximately five minutes walk from the beach. Hotel is located away from the hustle and bustle of the Waikiki stretch. Staff was friendly and very helpful. Breakfast was good, fresh fruits and mixed selection of items everyday. Ocean view rooms are so worth it you can take your breakfast to the balcony. Would definitely stay here again.
Mahalo to the staff of Hyatt Place!

This is generally what you expect from a Hyatt Place, which is a tier lower then the regency. But IMHO they don't lose much of the service, it's just not as stuffy. younger crowd or those who don't plan on spending much time in the room. It's literally a 3 min walk from the beach. Has a pool, decent (but not amazing) breakfast, good and very clean gym with lots of treadmills, bikes and elliptical machines. Bar is open late. Music at the bar on the weekends.

Pros:
Staff and service were excellent. Went out of their way on every occasion.
Like I mentioned - blocks from the beach
Rooms are very big.

Cons:
Elevators take FOREVER. Easier to take steps but sucks if you're on a high floor (unless you want to use it as your work out)
Breakfast is a bit of a battle zone as everyone is there to suck down the grub and get to the beach
Parking - we didn't rent a car overnight (that's the key, just rent a car for the day and bring it back to the rental agency at night. Then rent it again in the AM to save on parking). Parking at the hyatt was $24.

Overall I'd say stay there. Esp. if you have points.

Room Tip: Ask for a non-corner room or you'll be able to hear the adjacent room.

Aloha sanandreasfault,
Thank you for acknowledging the strengths of the hotel and staff. When we are full capacity there is naturally more people in the building which impacts the response time of the elevators. During peak hours especially, we recommend allowing more travel time in and out of the building. We appreciate your patience and are glad that you would choose to return, especially for Gold Passport points! .
Mahalo,

I think we were in the older part of the hotel. It was formerly called something else, so its not set up like a normal Hyatt Place in the tower we were in. Maybe the other tower was, Im not sure. In the older tower that we were in, it smelled a little musty, but the service was still great, breakfast was good & changed each day. We could still look out our balcony & see the ocean & a portion of Diamondhead.

I had a very large room that was clean and comfortable if not particularly stylish. I like the hotels location, very near the beach and strip, but slightly removed from the action—easy to walk everywhere. This hotel struck me as being extremely good value and a great night's sleep.

I had read negative reviews about this hotel but was pleasantly surprised. The room was nice, clean and spacious. We didn't wait for elevators but I don't know if this is a busy time if year or not. The free Bree breakfast was great. A big selection and fresh every day. The wind was a bit if a problem hen you were eating breakfast, but a tray was provided to take breakfast to your room. All in all a great hotel. Would stay here again

This was a stay-cation and specifically booked this hotel for the fire pit and breakfast. I had room 710 on diamond head tower.
The room was small and not like the photo which showed a pullout sofa. Our room just had a one sitter. The bed was great! Hair dryer and iron in room with mini fridge. One cup coffee maker and in room tray was a plus.
My first night went to the fire pit at night to find ... It's not on! Oh snap! The feature I was looking for and it's not turned on! Please advertise on the website when it's on ... I felt a big letdown.
So my second gripe was the minuscule balcony ... Two chairs facing each other with a table. The view was nice of Leahi but the air unit was behind one chair making it very uncomfortably hot.
As for breakfast, it was okay. Egg croissant and French toast. Hot and cold cereals. Variety of breads and juices. We only drank juice.
I felt the complimentary coffee should be put out earlier in the lobby and at night when guest returns. We weren't able to use this service.
The exercise room was nicely equipped.
We paid an extra $50 per day vs another budget hotel during a stay in May.

A lot of reviews accurate - elevator wait, some sign of age, rooms that are close to each other are really not quiet, and a room within close proximity from what I had (12th floor, Deluxe Mtn. View) gets loud with the in & out of other guests. Parking is another thing, only 20, or so self-park spots (more on that later though). Although, the hotel did it's best to fulfill my "Quiet room" preference. They did all they can, that's the thing. Those cons didn't outweigh benefits. Very helpful staff upon check in. - literally a slew of 20+ people from a van that offloaded just in front of me but front desk (or, Gallery Host, as they refer to themselves) quickly took next person and expedited my check in. I know why they're referred to Gallery Host because after check in, they show you around, well, the Gallery. The lobby, as most people say, is beautiful. Open air, tropical setting, public computers. Very nice. That's what I mean, elevator wait (c'mon, you're in Hawaii), age of hotel (very clean and updated rooms, what'd you expect for older part of island overrun by tourists all the time), etc. Especially accommodating was the overnight staff. I mean, I had a specific request for a specific time frame and they pulled through - Matt (Gallery Host) and Mark De Guzman (parking attendant), you know what you did! Awesome. I mean parking was either self-park (not usually available) and public parking up until midnight each night for fee as well. But, Mark, he'll take care of you. Trust me, he did for me. All in all, breakfast included, nice location, updated rooms (I mean, walk-in glass door, shower). Great stay!

Room Tip: Higher room but if elevator wait a problem then lower, like 6th floor, or so.
