Stayed here for one night and it's met all of my expectations. Location is bang on the beach with a lovely big pool, staff are friendly and attentive, our room and lanai was very comfortable with unobstructed ocean views. Loved the little things, like fresh fruit, chocolates and MP3 player which made our stay all the more perfect. Highly recommended, I'll be back.

We spent 7 nights at this gorgeous beachside hotel and recommend it highly.

The service is excellent, plenty of options for eating and the pool area is both relaxing and by Waikiki beach standards is relatively large and comfortable. As the hotel is at the beginning of the beach strip passing pedestrian traffic is not nearly as noticeable as other Waikiki beaches which makes the resort more secluded and peaceful.

We had a room with one of the best views on the strip encompassing the entire beach looking towards Diamond Head. To step out each morning to see this view was magical. The bed was extremely comfortable and the bathroom large allowing two people to move around with ease.

We had a lovely stay and we will be recommending the Halekulani to all others who are visiting Honolulu.

Room Tip: Request an upper room in the tower furthest away from reception that faces Diamond Head. You may have to pay more for the view but it's well worth it.

We had been dining at La Mer, the signature restaurant at the Halekulani, since it opened, but had never stayed there. This was our second trip, and like the first, was a nice piece of "paradise."

Though only having stayed on the property once, they had our portfolio at the ready, and knew our likes and dislikes. The FOH staff was excellent, as before, but now, we were treated like `ohana (family). Though I recognized a very few from our trip, the year before, it seemed that everyone knew our names, and addressed us on every occasion. This was from the housekeeping staff, to the various restaurants. I had come to expect that from the La Mer staff, as we have dined there so many times, over the years, but even the hostess at Orchids, for breakfast, knew who we were. That amazed me, but it provoked a very warm feeling - like being part of their "family."

Now, the property is lovely, and tucked away from most of what one thinks of, when the location Waikiki is mentioned. It is in the middle of everything, but, at the same time, a world away. I often cite the term/expression/feeling of "Island Time," but Halekulani personifies that term. It is both casual, and elegant. Grand, but homey. Definitely a luxury resort, but feeling rather like home. In short, a wonderful combination of attributes, and some that seem almost to be paradoxes. The best of many worlds.

Our first room was a suite, overlooking the Pacific, with a lovely lanai. This time, we were in the interior of the property, right over the spa, with a more "distant" view of the ocean, but lovely, in its own right. It was large, well-appointed, very comfortable and quite, though opening onto an interior courtyard.

The staff is very attentive and does a great job of anticipating a guest's needs.

Dining is fabulous, starting with either the breakfast buffet, or a full menu at Orchids. The Sunday Brunch at Orchids is not to be missed. This is a "dress up" brunch, and a jacket for a gentleman, while not required, will not be out character. The ladies don their hats, and some their gloves. Children wear nice dresses and blazers plus ties. They are not out of place.

La Mer is the signature restaurant, and is perhaps the ultimate fine-dining experience on O`ahu. The cuisine is a combination of Hawai`ian and classic French, and the wine list is fantastic, and has world-class depth. Until recently with The Vintage Cave, it was the finest in all of Hawai`i. It is also one of the most expensive restaurants on O`ahu.

Orchids is only a small step down. It's open for breakfast (full menu), lunch, Sunday Brunch, and dinner.

Then, there is HWAK (House Without a Key), that has a great pool patio, with drinks, wines, pu`pus and some of the best live Hawai`ian performances anywhere - La Mer has a few tables that overlook the stage.

Halekulani truly lives up to its name - "House Befitting Heaven"

Not inexpensive, but worth every $.

Room Tip: There were two breakfast options for us - Orchids with a full menu, and then HWAK with a buffet. We enjoyed the full menu at Orchids, but that buffet was very good.

This is a very nice hotel - very formal for Hawaii and very traditional. The good: Balconies off the rooms, nice pool (small), good security, nice breakfast buffet, small but okay beach, central location, clean and comfortable, staff is okay - hit and miss. The hotel attracts mainly people from Australia and Japan - since we are neither sometimes I was asked in a friendly manner if I needed "help" from a security guard. Just made me laugh as we had 3 rooms in the hotel.
Cons: We never ate dinner in the nicer restaurants of the hotel as they require long pants (and jackets). When Roy's and Ruth Chris are a block away and Alan Wong's is a cab ride away why wear long pants in Hawaii.

Room Tip: Spend for the Diamond Head view - it is very stunning to see.

We stayed at the Halekulani for two weeks in March and it was a perfect stay. It is a charming oasis in the middle of Waikiki. The hotel is updated and luxurious, the grounds are gorgeous, the service is impeccable and we had a beautiful room overlooking Diamond Head. The hotel is at the end of Waikiki Beach so you have the benefit of the convenience of being in Waikiki without being right in the middle of all of the activity. It is expensive, but everything in Hawaii is expensive and this hotel is definitely worth the extra expense. I have absolutely nothing bad to stay about the hotel or our experience. I would highly recommend the Halekulani!
