Reviewed 9 April 2014

We stayed at this hotel/condo for the first stop of our Hawaiian honeymoon. We used the timeshare my parents have. Pros; Clean hotel, new furnishings, kitchen area, close (short walk) to touristy area (Waikiki beach) cons; no restaurant or bar on premises or in pool area.
Pool is small with no view, music or bar.
This is a place just to sleep not for excitement.

Hi Eliza, just wanted to thank you for taking the time to review Wyndham Royal Garden. Reviews are always very important to us as we can always improve.
You comment about not having a restaurant/bar is well founded but unfortunately with Royal Garden being a Condominium (with several owners living on-site), I'm afraid this may never come to pass. I'm sure you understand.
We are happy however with your great 4-star rating.
Again, thank you for taking the time.
Aloha Steve W.

I stayed here from March 8-12, 2014 and thoroughly enjoyed the facility. Our studio room was updated, comfortable and clean. The room looked exactly as shown on the website. There was a small under-the-counter fridge, sink, microwave, dishes, cutlery and even placemats! They have dish washing soap and I think salt and pepper too but I didn't use any of that. I went out to eat but it was really nice to know that I could bring food back and enjoy it at the kitchenette table and put leftovers or breakfast items into the fridge. You can save alot of money and use it for entertainment!

There was complimentary coffee, tea and microwave popcorn provided in the unit which was a nice touch. You can ask for more at the front desk and they happily give it to you too! Every morning there was coffee brewing and depending on when you return, there was cold water awaiting you in the lobby.

All the staff were friendly and helpful. We did not have maid service daily because this hotel is partly a time share. However, that was absolutely fine with us for the price we paid.

Be careful...they leave a card on your bed for "a free gift". Don't redeem it unless you want to go on a timeshare sell. The better part of being a time share property is that you can do your laundry there for free (separate room but I didn't use it) and they have a nice small outdoor pool with patio and a games room with internet computers to use. I don't think they have daily program activities like other time shares have and if they did, I didn't know about it.

I was out from morning to night so I really didn't use the amenities. The bed was super comfortable and the shower was superb after a long day walking and loving the beach! We had 4 nice white towels. Free wi-fi and local calls in your room were other nice touches we did not have to pay extra for!

The Hotel is just around the corner from the canal and a couple blocks to walk to Fort DeRussy Park. Walk through that park and voila--you hit a wide and quieter part of Waikiki beach. We just walked all along the beach towards Diamond Head every day. It was a beautiful walk (despite the rain!) The location is very quiet and away from the hustle and bustle of the tourists. It is only a block from Kuhio Avenue where the buses run if you want to take the transit anywhere. We didn't.

We could easily walk along the canal to the big Ala Moana shopping center. I think it is about a 20 mins. walk but the terrain is flat and the scenery beautiful and peaceful (no tourists were along there like me LOL). It's not that far so if you can walk, it is a nice walk there. If I left the hotel and walked the other direction, within minutes I found myself on the shopping streets having a great time!

We did not have a car but we noticed the staff park it for you in their parking garage. There was some parking on the street outside but it was metered. It is not on a busy street and it was pretty quiet and safe to walk at 10 pm.

Oh yes, the hotel provides beach towels and once you want them exchanged, you just give them to the staff and they give you new ones.

On the downside, we did notice that there weren't any restaurants within a couple streets except one steakhouse on the corner. There is no restaurant in the hotel either. There is an ABC store up the street on the corner though so you can always pick up snacks and sundries and souvenirs there all hours of the day! There are lots of restaurants "where the action is" about 10 mins. walk away.

This was a nice quiet place to stay on the edge of Waikiki that I would definitely go back to again.

By the way, our taxi from here to the Norwegian Pride of America Cruiseship pier was $17 so with tip we paid $20 on a Saturday morning. I was too late in booking a shuttle ride with VIP Transport at $8 per person (already full) so we had to take a taxi and it turned out just fine. I'm always looking for a deal so I wanted to let you know what we paid!

You will enjoy your stay here! But....if you want to be where all the action is, this is not the place for you.

Nice hotel close to Waikiki clean and modern with very nice staff free wifi in a nice location. Only down fall is it is a time share apartment building and they will try to sell that to you. Apart from that this place is well worth the money.

Thank you so much for your nice comments and for those few issues of concern we will definitely be being addressing for the future. I appreciated your comments about the shallow tub and think this would be a good idea to replace during our next renovation. Thank you again and hope you come back soon.

If the beach is not the draw then this resort location is fine. We used a time-share trade to stay over the Christmas days and was our first time here. Tastefully renovated rooms and we had a 1 bedroom presidential which was on the 22nd floor over looking the street side, not the pool side. The one bedroom had a compact kitchen everything but a range, a full size washer and drier and good size bathroom with shower, and no bath. The lounge area sofa bed was extremely comfortable and the kingsize bed also, and the room size was large for just the two of us. Elevators seemed to be fast an efficient. Front desk and bell staff were excellent and friendly with nothing being a problem. Easy walking distance to shops and restaurants.

Room Tip: Try and get high room avoiding the pool area side.

We just came back from Honolulu, we had a great time. The staff is friendly,helpful, and courteous.
The location is not on the beach but a few short blocks and you are on the beach, nice shops and resturants are nearby.

Mahalo for taking the time to provide us with your feedback recently your visit and comments about our staff. We take pride in offering our guests a genuine island hospitality when it comes to service. Our property is situated away from the hustle & bustle of a busy street; however, shops, restaurants, and the beach is a 10 minute walk. Our location is also easily accessible to the bus lines.

This is my second trip staying at the Royal Garden. Both times I lucked out with the handicap unit which has a huge (roll in) shower. Front desk staff is GREAT... even the Events/Sign Up For Timeshare Presentation Staff are great.

To address other comments about this place, the studio unit I was in didn't have a cooktop, but did have a microwave, coffee maker, coffee maker, fridge, sink and knives, silverware and plates, bowls, etc. Great for breakfast prep, a little hard for dinner.

Six blocks to the beach, flat screen TV, clean, good bed, lanai (though no smoking).

Hope this helps.

My wife and I stayed at the Royal Garden on our recent trip to Honolulu. We actually used a time-share trade to stay, and were very pleased with this hotel. The rooms are recently and tastefully redecorated, with great beds and wonderful linens. This is a fully non-smoking hotel, including the lanais off of the bedrooms.

The hotel is located about five blocks from Waikiki Beach, and only one block from the shuttle and bus stops. You're only four blocks from Kalakaua Ave, which is the Rodeo Drive of Honolulu. The inland river is right next to the hotel, which offers a beautiful walking/running trail.

The staff went out of their way to be helpful, from check-in to check-out. The Concierge desk was incredibly good. They arranged all of our tours for us, and we were very pleased with all of them. Overall we were very pleased with our stay. The only reason for four stars instead of five, is the location away from the beach.
