Family of five with two kids (toddler and infant) traveling in July so decided a condo is the way to go. Have narrowed it down to three Aston properties: Pacific Monarch, Banyan and Sunset. We'd like an updated renovated room and it seems the Sunset has just completed updating all of their rooms. However, we'd also like to be closer to the "action" in Waikiki (beach, restaurants, shopping, etc.) to cut down on the walking time involved with a 2 1/2 and 8 mos old in tow. In this regard, the Pacific Monarch seems a better fit, but according to reviews it also appears to be the property with the oldest and most worn rooms.
For our situation, can you recommend one over another? Is the distance between the Sunset and the rest of Waikiki as pronounced as when I walk it on Google streetview?Edited: 17 June 2010, 16:30
