I stayed at the Outrigger Reef on business for two nights while visiting one of our companies in Oahu. The property is clearly a vacation resort, but it worked well for business, too. The location is very good and easy to find. Greeting by the bell staff and valet was efficient, and check-in was swift and easy.
The room itself had a resort feel (as expected). Balcony was large and overlooked the interior court, large pool and had a view off to the side of the beach itself. Appointments in the room were fine and in good shape. Cable package was a little light, but had a decent smattering of local, news and entertainment channels. The alarm clock was blessedly simple to use. Lighting was older style but serviceable. Bathroom was nice, with a large outer vanity area (with coffee maker and a refrigerator for use underneath) and a separate toilet and shower room, which was also clean and modern. Toilet had two flush options for conservation, which I liked. Internet was satisfactory. I did notice that they walls seemed a bit thin as I heard an infant an adjacent room crying at one point, and an alarm in another. Nothing major and neither were very loud (meaning they wouldn't disturb my sleep).
Shopping at the hotel is very good, with a variety of sundry, jewelry, clothing and crafts in multiple stores. I actually purchased a few Aloha shirts from one of the stores. I wanted to make sure they would be appropriate for business casual attire (as is the local custom) and the advice provided turned out to be perfect: they were a hit with our local team. Both shirts were made in Hawaii and were actually reasonably priced. A very good experience.
We had breakfast both days in the buffet restaurant (Shore Bird, I believe), and it was very good, with a mix of general standards and Hawaiian localities (pork, ham, Portuguese sausage). While not inexpensive, it was delicious.
A very good experience for a business traveler, even if I was envious the entire time of the vacation guests around me!
