We stayed here for 5 nights over New Year's Eve. Of course prices are high for holidays and I would not have minded if the hotel had been properly maintained. The swimming pool was closed for our entire stay, One of the three elevators was not working for our entire stay (and really caused extremely long waits in this 12...

This is a reasonably decent hotel, a great location about a block back from Waikiki Beach. Also only about a 1km walk to the Ala Moana Mall and park. Plenty of places to eat in the immediate area, including an ihop pretty much attached to the hotel. Check-in and check-out went relatively smooth and quick, with hotel staff being very...

We rented a room through vrbo from someone who owns one of the hotel rooms, so I just wanted to say a few things about the hotel itself--not the room we had. Location: It is across the street from the Hilton Hawaiian Village. I walked through the "village" twice (which is really just a mall full of expensive shops) and...

I was pleasantly surprised. Really nice, clean, friendly, great location! You can hire clean beach towels and beach chairs for free everyday. They have a free bus shuttle service that does a loop around Waikiki, free dvd rental in lobby. Super handy concierge desk and bell boy desk, they booked us into a great luau and everyone was lovely.

This is not a luxury hotel. Rather, it is a comfortable, relatively inexpensive hotel that is close to the beach. While we were there, the pool was closed, but that mattered little to us. The staff is very attentive and friendly.

I was immediately disappointed upon walking into my room. It seemed a little dingy and there was a wet spot in the carpet, some hair around the floor, and smudges all over the patio door. I was tired from traveling and knew I wouldn't get moved rooms because it was booked, so I didn't inform the hotel staff as it...

The hotel is across the street from the Hilton Village so very close to the beach. Our room was on a lower floor so a lot of traffic noise was heard all night long. The room was a basic hotel room. There was no clothes line in the shower which is disappointing when one needs to dry swimwear. Also the...

First let me say I tried to book this company's sister property in Waikiki Waikiki and the reservation agent recommended this property because it had a one-bedroom suite for my family. We arrived at the hotel and it was very much a 2-star property not a 3-star property. We requested a ocean view one bedroom and they placed us on...

Aloha Mike: Mahalo for sharing your recent experience at the Aqua Palms Waikiki. I'm disappointed to hear of the challenges you encountered. I was made aware of your concerns and did find alternate accommodations for you and understandably you didn't want to move with all of your belongings. I apologize that I was not made aware that you wished me...

We stayed here 3 nights November and 2 nights December on our way to and from Australia. Front desk was excellent with fast and easy checkin. Even though we arrived about noon, they were able to give us our room. They also have luggage storage if your room is not ready. We were upgraded to a suite on our first...

Stayed a night here and the view of the city was amazing! Many restaurants and bars nearby, a great location. The beach is about a 10 minute walk from the hotel. Our room was nice and clean with a partial kitchen. Our bed was comfortable and our stay was nice. We paid about $220 a night, the Hilton next door...
