We decided to travel to Hawaii from the U.K. at very short notice,and found hotel rooms very hard to find.I called the Queen Kapiolani and was told that they only had three nights available and that the room would be small with a very limited view.Oh well,beggars cant be choosers so I accepted the offer.After a very easy and pleasant check in we proceeded to the room with some trepidation but upon entry we were very pleasantly surprised.Yes the room was small but the view from the window was actually very nice looking down on the pool area and across to Honolulu zoo and quite a large slice of the beautiful Pacific ocean.With the window louvres fully open I even managed to do some whale watching with my binoculars.The bed was small ( it had to be ) but was very comfortable and we slept very well.The room was spotlessly clean,had a fridge,large flat screen t.v.and well stocked bathroom with a good shower.The pool deck area was great for breakfast with a lovely view of Diamond Head.Valet parking was quick and efficient and the guys were really helpful.Overall a really nice clean friendly hotel just one block from a great beach and places to eat.My only minor gripe was that the disabled lift at the front steps was out of order for the whole time we stayed as they were apparently waiting for repair parts,but to be fair reception staff offered to get me help with my wifes wheelchair if i needed it,so no major problem.In the end we loved the Queen Kapiolani and would definately stay again,but for more than three nights would book much earlier and get a bigger room.
