$110/night for a Garden View Room. Room 546 Maile tower for the first four nights; Rome 839 our last night, Maile tower.
This was our second stay at the Hale Koa (October 2005) and just like our last visit, we truly enjoyed this visit. Our room was clean, comfortable and with a wonderful view of the Waikiki area. Everyone was friendly, especially Geri, our cute and always smiling waitress at the barefoot pool bar. If you are military or a DOD employee, this is THE best place to stay while in Waikiki. The prices are excellent (based on your rank and type of room (garden vs. ocean view)), no taxes, and all the amenities a 4-5 star resort provides. And the beach is the best in Waikiki, as it is not crowded at all.
Room 839 has a great corner balcony, so we had views towards the mountains, and could also look around the corner towards the water. The room looks larger too. Room had a king bed, a small sofa and desk. Room 546 had two queen beds.
The Hale Koa is within walking distance to Keo's Thai restaurant; 20 minutes towards Diamond Head (we dined at Tiki's - great Kalua pig quesadillas!).
We'll always return to the Hale Koa when visiting Oahu.
