Nice property but signs it is being ignored. It isn't very nice to approach a BRAND hotel and see a very small garden area ( and across the street from Hilton Hawaiian Gardens) left ignored. In March, last Christmas's poinsettias are left in their foil as if it's someone's back

Stayed for 10 nights and this was a return visit for us. The room was clean and comfortable even though a bit dated. The service staff were very good with our requests for toiletories and towels and had the place always clean on our return. Close to the beach and Ala Moana

Good location, walking distance to almost every place. Room & beds (queen size) were very small for 2 adults & 2 children. One of the beds had a lot of stains & they covered it with sheets. Bathroom was very small & can barely fit one person in it. Swimming pool was also small &

Aloha Mr. Siva: Mahalo for sharing your comments regarding your recent stay at the Aqua Palms Waikiki. I'm disappointed to hear that our property did not live up to your expectations and that you felt it was too small for your family of four. We do have junior suites and one bedroom units that sound like they would have been more comfortable for your family. That being said we are known for our friendly staff and great location and it walk ability to many locations. All of the staff and management hope you were able to bring home fond memories of your stay in the islands. Me ke Aloha Pumehana, With Warmest Aloha, Patty Maher General Manager

Aloha, Our ADA accessible rooms are in the city view category. As mentioned above, it would be best to call hotel directly to ensure that we are able to meet all of your needs.

Does the amenity fee include parking? Is there an in room safe? Thank you
Yes, I believe we had a safe. No need to rent a car. Traffic is horrible. Ride the bus, or take the tour busses on special trips.

"Get room on the higher floors as there is a lot of traffic noise down low."
"I like city view away from Elevators to get quiet good sleep."
"Choose a room on the top floor, as they are clean and you get to view Ocean and mountain views. Noise is low compared to other floors."
"Get a room with a balcony and fold out couch. The extra space helps a lot."
"Even Numbered Rooms provide a filtered view of ocean and Diamond Head, but are exposed to street and pool noise."
US$141 - US$271 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
