“An Amazing Honeymoon”
Reviewed 1 August 2014

My wife and I stayed at the Holiday Inn Beachcomber for one week to celebrate our honeymoon. The view from our 25th floor room was breathtaking. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Waikiki and walking distance to the beach, restaurants, and activities. The entire staff was extremely helpful and courteous but our concierge James Speight was the highlight of the hotel. He was incredibly knowledgeable about the area and had tons of great ideas about what me and my new wife should do. We inquired about a dinner cruise to see the Friday night fireworks and he had three different options (all at different price points) immediately ready. He talked through the pros and cons of each option and ultimately booked us an incredible cruise at an extremely affordable price (no mark-up or commission for the concierges). James made sure to greet us and ask how our trip was going every time he saw us and ask if we had any questions. Overall, James was an incredible benefit to the hotel and made our trip even more special!

Thanks James for everything!!

Sam and Rebecca

I arrived for an 11 day stay for business. As is my custom, I immediately give my credit card, reservation and tip to the front desk attendant. In this case it is Serena. She was very surprised at the tip and said that she had never gotten one. I said it was for her and if there was anything that she could do to make my stay more enjoyable, I would appreciate it. I got upgraded to a king size bed room all the way at the end of the hall, away from the elevators and only one neighbor. That equals quiet. On top of that, my balcony has a partial view of the ocean.
The hotel is nice, the room is clean and housekeeping did a great job throughout my stay.
Being in the heart of Waikiki, there are plenty of places to go and see with food establishments within easy walking distance.
My only complaint is that there were no lounge chairs in the room. All that was available were two straight back desk chairs. Other than lying on the bed there is no comfortable place to relax and read.

Aloha Jody O,

Thank you for choosing to stay here with during your business trip to Oahu and for taking the time to review our hotel. I am happy to hear that Serena was able to recognize your business needs by placing you in a quiet room away from the elevator. She is always quick to respond to our guests needs once they are revealed to her. I apologize that there was no seating area to lounge around in your room. We have a few larger rooms which contain sofa beds in them which sounds like they would better suit your needs. If you plan to return to Oahu again, please do not hesitate to contact our management staff who can ensure that you are reserved into a room which will meet all of your business and/or vacation needs. Mahalo Nui Loa.

The hotel room was very clean and spacious. The location was excellent, of course I'd love a beach front hotel but this was only a 2 min walk to the beach and far more reasonably priced. I was bit unhappy that we had requested an upper floor room 6 months ago but got the 2nd floor so no city or hills view just a the side roof balcony with men working on it periodically during the day so we couldn't open our curtains but that was the only down side. Being directly opposite The Cheesecake Factory and a 1 minute walk to our favourite eating place - Island Vintage Coffee (you have to try their famous Acai bowl) was a bonus.
The pool was great and they had beach towels available at all times. The restaurant was yummy but the service during the day on the deck was really slow especially compared to the restaurant at night which was excellent - Josh was so friendly and welcoming.
The best thing about this hotel is James Speight the best concierge out there. He listened to our questions, made excellent suggestions (the Ocean Joy snorkelling cruise is a fantastic day out) and even took time out of his day off to find some items for my daughter that she couldn't find within walking distance or at Alomoana - that's above and beyond service! Thanks James!

Green Features: The staff were very helpful and friendly, every time I asked for something they would always help with a smile on their face.

We really enjoyed our stay at the Beachomber, the room was great had a lovely view of the beach. Very close to shops and the beach. On our last day they were able to accommodate us to allow us to keep our room til 5pm at a very low cost as our flight back to New Zealand wasn't til 11pm. Would really recommend this hotel.

Our stay was great!!! Seeing we were a military family, they upgraded us for free to a suite. They were helpful in every way. Our maid was so friendly and kept our room very clean! It was so spacious! Fantastic location right across from Cheesecake Factory! Right in heart of Waikiki. I didn't mind the very short walk to beach. Small but very clean pool! Definitely worth it and a great military discount!
