we checked in late night, and told the front desk we would prefer a quiet floor if there's one. We were given room 306. The hotel was undergoing renovation, particularly the elevators. We have to wait for a bit for the elevators to get to the third floor. Our room faces directly to the pool, and breakfast area, and bar. We like it's so close to the pool, but that also means it has a lot of noise from traffic traversing the area.
For some reason, every morning without fail at 5am, there were noises created from carts moving over the tiles (we didn't find out what caused it, either construction or breakfast preparation), but it was not easy to sleep at that point. Every night, there's quite a few people gathering at the bar, and that meant noise, and Sunday night, they have disco nights as well. Also, our room faces to another building's parking lot, and every night, there seemed to be a party going on, but usually the noise died down by 11pm or so.
It is nonetheless in a very desirable part of waikiki for the price, and the staff seems to do a good job maintaining the hotel, and providing needed services to guests. I just wish they have a way to soundproof their rooms a bit better.
