My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 4 nights at the end of our honeymoon.
This hotel was dissapointing. I had requested an upgrade when we booked the accomodation due to it being our honeymoon and my request was declined. At all other Hawaiian hotels we stayed at, an upgrade was given immediately due to the special occasion and a bottle of champagne was provided. We did not receive anything from this hotel.
The hotel room we were given was extremely old and outdated and the matress was so uncomfortable we could not sleep at night. The phone in our room also did not work, which was an inconvenience. We were told a new phone would be provided, but it was not. Our hotel room was at the end of the hotel, which meant we had a view directly into another hotel's rooms, which was not appealing and meant we had to keep the curtains closed. The bathroom was extremely small and very outdated. We were seriously considering checking out of this hotel early and finding alternate accomodation.
The hotel is in a good location though, one block from the beach and directly opposite the Honolulu Zoo. We could see animals from our balcony (an Elephant) and we had a fantastic view of Diamond Head, which was nice.
We will not be returning to the Queen Kapiolani Hotel.
