Want to be where the action is? Or coming to get some advanced training for the Ironman World Championship? And not really looking for a resort? Then this is your place to stay.
When you arrive don't be disappointed by the "normal" look of the towering hotel building in "downtown" Kailua. Soon you will discover that the hotel site extends to the bay and has several smaller motel style buildings, two swimming pools and small garden areas. The hotel's terrace overlooking the starting area for the swim event of the Ironman also serves as a vantage point to check on the tourist life on Ali'i Drive along the sea.
Breakfast is included in the room price: A minimal choice is offered at Tante's Restaurant, and is just right for you, if you don't want to get overweight. We think the symbiosis of the hotel with this restaurant is very positive. We also had dinner there: The food was tasty and inexpensive, and the service very friendly.
We stayed in a Deluxe Room on the fifth floor of the tower and definitely enjoyed the view on the Kailua Pier and the sea; the somewhat higher price was fully justified. Hotel parking was an extra five dollars per night.
Free WiFi works only in the lobby and could have been more reliable; from our experience in Hawaii it seems to be quite common that "free WiFi's" either are unreliable, under-dimensioned or forcing nasty, repetitive login procedures.
