We stayed at Outrigger Waikiki on the Beach twice in 2006 and enjoyed it. We stayed again just before Christmas 2013 for 3 nights and found it even better after its fairly recent refurb. The Christmas decorations were lovely - we appreciated their tropical theme. Our room was an Ocean View room which gave us a side-on view of the beach and the ocean between our hotel and the Royal Hawaiian Tower next door. Loved the lanai although it would have been better if we had been on the other side of the building away from the air-conditioner noise from the Royal Hawaiian Centre next door, but this didn't spoil our enjoyment of the view and the amazing sunsets from the lanai. We couldn't hear the noise when the sliding balcony door was closed.
The room was spacious with a big bed and a nice big sofa. We liked the fact that the room was not too starkly modern - it had some pleasant Hawaiian touched such as the hula-girl lamp standard and the Polynesian-inspired furnishings and carpet. The bathroom was a total joy - modern, bright, spacious and functional with a combo shower/bath with a neat curtain which kept the floor dry!
We enjoyed breakfasts at Dukes, maitais at The Hula Grill and a dinner at Chuck's Steakhouse and one day bought a fresh-made-while-you-wait sandwich from the very busy little lunch bar between the lobby and the pool. All were very good. The convenience store in the hotel has a good range of things to buy and good wine prices. We bought a couple of wine glasses from the convenience store as that's one thing missing in the room - no wine glasses. Perhaps one could request wine glasses through Hotel Room Service but we didn't think of that at the time.
The complimentary Wifi worked really well and we made full use of it.
The staff are all great and we received very good service on departure for our Pride of America cruise from the Bell Desk who happily stapled our cruise baggage labels and called us a taxi to the pier.
This hotel is in the centre of everything at Waikiki and we think it's a great place to stay.
