For the price we paid the cleanliness and service at this hotel was the worse ever. No signage to anywhere and no one to ask. When we did ask we got attitude. The room after we found it was clean but phone did not work nor was their any way to contact service. Will not recommend or stay here again

For Hawaiian Airline travelers it was the perfect place to stay before or after your flight because it was connected to the Jet Blue terminal 5 which uses Hawaiian airlines and we could walk from our room into the terminal without even going outside. We loved the 50's theme of the hotel. The only thing I didn't like was there was no soap in the bathroom soap dish. I had to step into the shower to get soap to wash my hands. We asked for soap but it was never delivered.

I was overcharged for parking and vendor did not respond to my refund requests. There should also be a true self-parking option (and better directions abt that before you drive up).

Honestly, for a fairly new hotel, I thought that some areas looked a little beat up.... THe Red Carpet going to the Hughes wing looks really dirty, which is a huge turnoff when you arrive at a hotel.
