I'm looking at going to Hawaii in August. I'll be traveling solo as my traveling companion had bailed on me for this trip. I plan to stay in Waikiki which is where you come in. Can anyone recommend a great hotel for me. The main things I want to do are laze in the sun (beach and also pool), bit of shopping at Ali Moana, trip around the island (is the bus still good?). I enjoy a drink at sunset followed by a nice dinner, and would love to meet fellow travellers. My budget is fairly open. Initially I was thinking somewhere like Outrigger Reef. Love to hear from you.
