We booked this hotel thru AAA, first leg of our 2-island honeymoon. (see my Fairmont Maui review) We stayed from May 21 to May 26. Though we've not done too much inside the hotel, let me tell u why I gave a 5 Star. Was our first time in Hawaii so we did a lot of the tourist things, out most of the day. First of all, we booked a City View room, cuz I was betting on that they would give us an Upgrade knowing we are honeymooners(I read here that they upgrade sometimes). Sure enough, at check in, he said, oh you should never book a CityView room for your honeymoon, let me upgrade you to a partial ocean view. (we also got 2 boxes of chocolate from hotel) So we stayed on 9th floor, balcony faces pool, and partial ocean view. Room was fair size, enough for a king bed and a sofa. It is right on the beach, once you step out of the hotel from the back, you are on the sand. This is awesome cuz there are a lot of hotels in Waikiki not exactly on the beach. The hotel has a park next to it so it doesnt feel like its in between all the tall buildings. Also location was awesome. McDonalds right across the street(a small 2lane 1way) A Starbucks being built at the hotel on the lobby. A short block away from the main street, Kalakaua, where there's Cheesecake Factory, high end stores Coach, Tods, A/X, also International Market Place. There's plenty to shop/eat on Kalakaua. Just so convenient. We walked around there 3 nites. As others mentioned, this hotel has a nice/big airy lobby. A lot of other hotels have a small lobby(most of Ohana hotels). If you have to ship your souvenier back home, the Post Office is right around the corner. So I gave a 5 Star for the upgrade, the most awesome location and size, and generally good/clean room. I highly recommend it.
