Only reason I wouldn't come back to Hawaii at this time of year is the weather! The QK hotel was very clean and had a great view of the zoo!! Great place to stay. Coupled with individual a/c units an outdoor patio and a mini fridge it was a great value! Very satisfied.

My family stayed at the Queen Kapiolani hotel for 5 days. After a long nights travel, we were very impressed by our first impression. The hotel front desk was very friendly and made us feel very welcomed. The next few days we were helped by Kawai and Calvin at the valet/bell desk. I must admit that their smiles and aloha spirit is exactly what we thought our Hawaii experience would be like. They helped us with our baggage, gave us helpful tips for our vacation and made us feel very welcomed each day. These employees are the biggest reason why we’d recommend others to stay at Queen Kapiolani Hotel. There are many nice accommodations in Honolulu but not all hotels have the aloha spirit like these two did.

I saw the deal on Expedia and looked at Tripadvisor to see ratings which were positive.

The pictures dont do the lobby justice. It is quaint, with good snacks inside (dole ice cream and japanese coffee ice cream - both delish). The lobby itself has lots of charging ports, which helps if you need to do some work outside of your room, or if you want to sit down there and chat with old or new friends. There are plenty of comfortable couches, and some nice rocking chairs that face towards the zoo.

The staff all give the friendly Hawaiian vibe and attitude. It was a pleasure staying with them.

The room itself is spacious, clean and we have an amazing view of Diamond Head and the city skyline. If you close the lighter blinds, at night, the city lights are spectacular. (10/10 view).

Be sure to take full advantage of the resort amenities, my Fiancee and I did morning yoga, with the Diamond Head view. Absolutely zenful

Room tip: vintage vibe with modern amenities

We stayed here for one night between flights. The hotel is very comfortable, clean rooms, friendly staff. The location is near Waikiki Beach (a block away) but away from the crowds. We were able to enjoy a nice walk along the beach to an oceanside breakfast before heading back to the airport for our flight to Kauai. We would stay here again & would not hesitate to recommend it to family & friends.

I had a lovely stay at the Queen Kapiolani Hotel, which has great views of Diamond Head, and is a block off the beach, next to the zoo. The staff were very friendly, greeting new guests with a floral lai. I love the nostalgic 1950s - modern vibe mash up. Like many Waikiki hotels, the lobby is open air, with gentle breezes. But it's third floor restaurant has a great view of Diamond Head. As a nice touch, they provide guests with $5 discount tokens for a lunch and dinner, and a token for a welcome drink. I would definitely stay here again, in the portion of Waikiki with great surfing lessons.

Room tip: I asked for a Diamond Head view room and got upgraded to a penthouse with a large two-sided balcony on the 21st floor. Sweet!
