Hotel is perfectly placed if you don't want to be in the main tourist section of town. You are far enough away to have a relaxing time, but still close enough to walk to the main strip. Close to the Ala Moana Shopping plaza (5 min walk) and close enough to the beach (10 min walk). If you find that's too far to walk then you can use the lagoon located directly next door at the Hilton.
Every Friday night the Hilton has a fireworks show that you can see from the hotel depending on your room, otherwise you can go down to the bar/pool area and watch from there.
The room was extremely clean and had everything that we needed. Beach towels were provided and plenty of towels for showering. The lobby of the hotel has several stores, including a grocery store where you can buy anything you need including alcohol. There is a bar/grill and a restaurant on top of the building that has amazing views.
Our apartment had a view of the pool and harbour. Very relaxing. There is a bus stop right outside the front door and there was always at least one taxi waiting in the drive. The pool also has a bar and staff will take you to deck chairs, provide towels and take drink and food orders from your deck chair. I don't know how anyone could give this place a bad review....what more could you want.
