Excellent hotel!

Pros: My only complaint is that the shower was a bit small in our courtyard view room.
My husband and I decided to splurge a bit on our first trip to Hawaii, and chose the Halekulani. It turned out to be an excellent choice!! The location was perfect in every way, and although we booked a courtyard view room, we not only had a beautiful courtyard view, but also a perfect ocean view as well. From the spacious balcony of our room, we were able to easily view the ocean, and even had the nice surprise of fireworks when we returned to our room from dinner our last night there. The service at the Halekulani is unsurpassed, and I looked forward to our little gifts left for us each night. When we arrived at our room the first day, we had chocolates and fruit waiting for us. Later that afternoon we were surprised with a complimentary bottle of champagne. I highly recommend the Halekulani, even though the cost is considerable higher than many of the other hotels.

Truly a Heavenly Experience

We stayed from Friday to Monday and it was the perfect setting for relaxing and being treated well.  We spent most of our time on the lanai so that we could soak up the Diamond Head and ocean view.  The nightly music at House Without A Key was audible from there as well.  We love everything about Halekulani!!!

Treat yourself!

This is an amazing hotel. Georgeous, and classical all at the same time. If you can't afford to stay there, at least stop by and have a cocktail at sunset!

Great Resort

We stayed for 7 night's this Aug 2009 it was one of the best places we have stayed at .The service is top notch and the people really care about your satisfaction while your there. The buffet in the morning is a can't miss great food and service. We are already planing our return trip in the very near future. We also booked a privite island tour while we were there through the hotel and it was fantastic . We went to places you would not normally see through a regular circle island tour this is one I would recommened to everyone if you can afford it!! Anthony was our driver and he shared the island culture and some hidden places on the island it was great we were out for over 6 hour's and saw the entire island. Be prepaired it is expensive but if you want the best you have to pay for it. Enjoy!!

Great service . . . tired decor.

Aloha, We stayed at the Halekulani for a week in January 2009. The service was consistently excellent. Wait staff, bell boys, concierge, maids, room service - every single employee we encountered went way above and beyond to make sure our needs were met, and then some. That said, the hotel rooms and furnishings were something of a disappointment. The decor seemed tired and worn, and even the mid-range rooms were small. On the whole, the hotel interior seemed to have seen better days, and would not compare favorably to hotels on the mainland at less than half the price. Still, the service and the food made up for that deficiency, so we still felt like we got our money's worth. We would absolutely return to the Halekulani, were we to visit Oahu again. However, our next visit to Hawaii will probably be to one of the other islands, simply because the town and its architecture, like the Halekulani's interior, seem to hold on to their glory days of the 60's and 70's, maybe through inertia or want of a new formula. Think Hawaii 5-0 reruns on your big-screen plasma TV, and you've got the picture, Dano. Mahalo!

They Spoiled Us Rotten!

We can only say wonderful things about the Halakulani Hotel. It is beautiful: from the rooms to the gardens, to the wall-less reception desk, and common areas. The food in the restaurant, The House Without A Key, and room service were superb. From our room it appeared the waves were breaking under the hotel. What a georgeous optical illusion. But...the best part was the people and the service they provided. We were always greeted warmly and our name was always used. Every question was answered. For example, we admired a flower in the garden and asked what was its name at the concierge desk. Flora is certainly not their specialty and they appologized for their ignorance. About an hour later we receive a knock on our door and the anser was delivered in a folder with a 10 page print out on the flower in question. We loved the little gift left for us each night after room service turned down or bed and the welcoming gift when we arrived of the chocolates and fresh fruit. I have traveled where the employees are courtious but here they were warm and friendly and helpfull. We will return!
