If you are planning a trip to Honolulu, I highly recommend this hotel. It was a great pre-cruise stay and the location can't be beat. Also known as The Pink Palace, The Royal was among the the first few hotels built along Waikiki Beach. Check in was breeze after being turned away from an existing reservation at a near by...

This has got to be 'the' hotel to choose in Honolulu. The pink palace is iconic and truly enhances your Hawaiian experience. We were there as day guests as we were visiting as part of a world cruise. The location is second to none, the service is excellent and the food was terrific. This is Waikiki beach at its best

This hotel faces the ocean and is along the most fashionable avenue of Honolulu. The lobby is huge and elegant. The gardens are awesome and very colorful. The rooms are very comfortable and makes one feel he belongs to the old world elegance. It shared a nice pool with Sheraton Waikiki, which seems to be also a nice hotel.

We stayed here in 2009 and again in Feb 2014 and had a fabulous time. Rooms are terrific, have gotten upgraded both times to...

We stayed in the pink palace and were impressed from the moment we arrived. We were greeted with lais and a much needed drink and then found banana bread and a beautiful bunch of flowers in our room. The breakfast was consistently delicious and the service good. The tower room we were in had a breathtaking view of Waikiki Beach...

“If you really want a water facing room it might be best to stay in the tower vs the original building.”
