We spent two nights here in October 2013. After reading reviews about how small the standard rooms were, we booked a Diamond Head view w/balcony and requested a remodeled room. On check-in, it was obviously not touched in years - avocado green/harvest gold carpet, chipped bathroom fixtures, worn furniture. When I called the front desk to request a remodeled room they told me it had been remodeled just last year - ! Unfortunately the AC would not cool the room down nearly enough to open the drapes and enjoy the view we paid extra for. Maintanence came and said it worked fine - it did not. I had to call 3 times to get a tub stopper. When I went to make coffee, the grounds were still there from the previous occupant and one of the styrofoam cups had grounds in it.
It did have a nice big TV and they have resolved the wifi issue not reaching the upper floors - we were on 15. The king bed was fine. And the location was great - close to the beach and away from the worst of the Waikiki congestion, just across from a lovely park and the zoo.
