I echo many of the positive things that other reviewers have written about the hotel. The staff is VERY helpful, friendly and pleasant. Our room was cleaned early in the day, which was nice if we were coming back from a morning activity and wanted to relax in the room before taking off again. The staff will provide beach towels...

This lovely hotel definitely exceeded my expectations. You won't sacrifice anything by avoiding the big Waikiki resorts. Customer service was top notch, the room was spacious and nicely decorated with all the amenities you could want. Breakfast is a nice touch if you're in town on business and want to grab a quick bite on your way out. I will...

I was so impressed with this hotel during my stay in Honolulu, Hawaii in November 2016. We spent most of the holiday out and about exploring, sightseeing and shopping so a resort style of accommodation on this trip would have been a waste. This clean, modern hotel was perfect for my friends and I. Apart from the wonderful accommodation, the...

This is my 3rd stay at this property. Towards the end stretch of Waikiki Beach but still a nice location. One black from St. Agustine Catholic Church and very close to Kapiolani Park where one can view Waikiki Beach. Staff are very nice and friendly. Warm and personal unlike those huge hotels with 100s of rooms. See staff run to...

A nice little place on the upper (Honolulu Zoo) end of the Waikiki strip. Rooms are quite small, almost NYC small; nice furnishings with some rough edges in a hotel that is getting close to needing a bit of a refit. Still, very clean. Best thing about the place is the staff--amazingly friendly, from the front desk folks to the...

We stayed at Renew for 4 nights and used it as our base for exploring Oahu. The hotel is great, located just at the end of Waikiki on the first block by the beach. The staff was very friendly and helpful and there was always fresh coffe and cold water for the guests as well as snacks. The room was...

We have been delighted with our 8 day stay here. The location is perfect - a 90 second stroll from the beach. Our room was very clean and comfortable and well-designed with everything right where you needed it. And the staff were lovely, so friendly and eager to go out of their way to help. We have stayed at a...

We stayed at Hotel Renew and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We took the Speedi Shuttle from the airport and it took us 40 minutes get to the Hotel. Upon arrival, we were greeted with some cold towels and pineapple juice. The weather during our trip was between 75-80 degrees, and sunny. Our room was spacious, good sized bed, TV, Play-station,...

We stayed at Hotel Renew for our honeymoon (late October - early November) and thoroughly enjoyed our experience. We got the shared shuttle (Speedi Shuttle) with our booking and it took us 40 minutes to arrive at the Hotel after landing (due to the various stops at different hotels). Upon arrival we were greeted at reception and offered some cold...

Very good service from all staff we interacted with during our 2 day stay. Room was very clean. Few comments - the breakfast was good, but would have preferred to have some items with less sugar, like one cereal choice that was not so sweet or some plain bread. Also at times during the night we had a loud drip...
