Aqua acquired the Queen recently, but this hotel is not what I'd expect from an Aqua property yet. The a/c was anemic, and was a problem in the public rooms our group used, as well as my room. The case goods are dated, the mattresses unforgiving. My room safe had rusty edges. Overall. Somewhere between faded and rundown.
The location is great- not too far from everything, and across from the beautiful zoo. Two blocks from the beach, great view of diamond head , peak a boo of the water from my room. Overall, the staff were helpful and friendly- even if the answer frequently began with "I'm sorry." It will be interesting to see what I expect Aqua will accomplish in the coming months.
