My husband is retired military and we decided to stay at the Hale Koa while vacationing in Honohulu. We were very happy with the hotel, especially it's location. If shopping is at the top of your list of things to do, then you are ideally situated near a large shopping area. The Hilton is right next door to the Hale Koa and we enjoyed watching their fireworks on Friday night. We walked around the Hilton many times enjoying their restaurants and shops. There are free local newspapers by their elevators. Inside the local paper is the USA today which was a pleasant surprise. There were a few things that the Hale Koa could improve on. There are no bottles of water in the rooms, and the shampoo that is provided is in a tiny bottle. There is also a welcome briefing held the first morning of your stay which includes a selection of pastries, coffee, and juices. You will be told of all the activities held at the hotel and offered 10% each tour or activity. This made me mad because I had already booked our activities in advance. Perhaps we received better seats, but who knows. The magic show and comedy show were both wonderful and I highly recommend both.
