Hotel Very Pleasant and Happy respectful people.

Pros: steps for the beach.
Cons: Need to link restaurant to the hotel. to use room numbers and service without hassle.
Location: Surfing, Snorkeling, swimming, shopping, relaxing, dining, fishing, boating, ALL CITY amenities in walking distance, and free bus for nearby.
Very nice hotel and all around pleasant you can not go wrong. only thing you need to know about is that your car will cost you 38.00 a night but you don't even need a car because of the shuttles for excursions and free bus trolleys. they are also still working on linking your hotel room numbers or keys for payment at the connecting restaurant witch you would think that it is owned by the hotel but it is not. (there is a 30.00 per day charge fee for cleaning your room ALL Waikki hotels charge this fee and for about the same price) but this hotel gives you free WiFi. All HOTEL people are very nice and Happy to deal with. The whole entire experience was a Great one and I can NOT say anything was not up to par. Thank You. Mike P.

Well with the stay!

Pros: I like everything about this hotel. Friendly personnel, beautiful decor, delicious food, and an amazing room.
Cons: Can't improve perfection....
Location: The location was near Waikiki beach, a short walk to the Honolulu Zoo, not far from Bishop 's Museum, nightclubs for dancing and socializing, & shops.
Easy check in and our room was beautiful. We could see the pool, the beautiful gardens, and the ocean from our balcony. The bed was a king and exceptionally comfortable. They had an amazing buffet breakfast. I definitely would stay here again and recommend it to anyone traveling to Hawaii.

On the beach

Loved this hotel - nothing negative to say about it. The view, the beach, the various venues for dining and the very close proximity to the Beach Walk.
