This lovely hotel from 1927 remains a classic gem. Unlike the other hotels on Waikiki that are Vegas like this hotel has classic charm. We stayed in the tower rooms ...all ocean view. Complimentary continental breakfast everyday and happy hour cocktails with appetizers. Staff goes above and beyond. Classic rooms are garden view which back in 1927 were coveted because... More

The buildings, the grounds, the staff, the hospitality were all excellent, as one would expect from a property of this caliber! I really felt treated like royalty! One thing that stood out to me were the small personal details such... More

The Royal Hawaiian is the most beautiful hotel in Waikiki. The location is peaceful and the open garden area feels like a private oasis. A great place to stay if you want to be within walking distance to all the local amenities and still have peace and quiet. If you enjoy a treat walk to Leonard's Bakery for hot fresh... More

Great ocean front location on Waikiki Beach. And a very beautiful hotel. I think the original hotel part may be a better choice than the Mailani Tower. Located below the Mailani tower is a "kiddie pool" where children are playing, screaming, yelling throughout the day. I know that's what kids do, but when someone is paying for an expensive room...

After my last visit and review in 2015, I wrote RH off. However, the Director of Guest Service at the time, immediately addressed my dissatisfaction by booking us a 3 night stay Thanksgiving week of 2016. Generously gave a free upgrade to a King Kalakaua Oceanview Suite. From the moment of arrival, we received proper aloha greetings and lei's. Check... More

As we were leaving the Royal Hawaiian after a short stay, my daughter said, "we are always staying here when we come to Honolulu." The hotel is an oasis of beauty and calm in the hustle-bustle of Waikiki beach. We loved he beautiful lobby/loggia/public areas. From the arrival to departure, the service was excellent - professional yet extremely friendly and... More
