We stayed in an Ocean Front room and the view was perfect! We could sit on our balcony and look out on the zoo & parkland, as well as the beach & ocean - just sensational. I'm sure there are fancier hotels in Waikiki and I wouldn't want to stay at the Park Shore without a room with a view, but our experience was great. There is a good organic food place off the lobby - Tucker & Bevvy - so you can have a very economical stay by eating their delicious breakfasts and take away salads. The hotel is located just across the road from the beach and they give you the use of hotel towels which is helpful. Others have complained about small rooms and this surprised us as our room was plenty big enough. Similarly, others have mentioned noise from a night club. Maybe we were just lucky but we slept with the balcony doors open so we could hear the ocean and never experienced any noise problems.

This hotel is all about location. It is close to the beach, restaurants and cafes and shops. The service was great. The views were terrific. The only minus from making it above average is it is close to a night club which was noisy one night - even though I was on the tenth floor.

Room Tip: Asking for a quiet room might be good though you would have to forgo the view. The noise was only o...

Talk about a sweet score. Hard to get more beach-front than the Park Shore. As others have mentioned, rooms are fairly small (think NYC size) but they are more than enough for your stay. Yes they are also spotless and very welcoming. I was given an upgrade to an ocean view room and enjoyed the sunset every night from the balcony.

Keep in mind, this is a narrow property as my wing only had rooms on one side. The other side of the hallway going to the room is open to an alley which happens to be where many trash trucks and delivery vehicles visit at ALL HOURS of night. I did hear it at 1am, 2:30, 4, 5am. Bring ear plugs just to drown out the BEEP BEEP BEEP that you could hear.

Even with the truck noise I would still highly recommend this property for your stay.

Aloha grif858,

Thank you for taking the time to write a nice review regarding your recent stay at Park Shore Waikiki. I am glad to hear that you upgraded to our renovated Ocean View room and enjoyed the sunset views from your room. I am sorry about the noise. Waikiki is a very busy and vibrant city that does have noise throughout Waikiki. The noise happens to be less in our area at the end of Waikiki compared to the center of Waikiki. We appreciate your recommendation for others to stay with us, and hope that you are able to return again in the future as well. We will ensure that you have another excellent stay with us.

We are coming to the end of a week stay and are glad we stayed here. I wanted a hotel on the beach with a lanai with ocean views. The view from our room (1007) is spectacular stretching from Diamond Head to a great expanse of Waikiki Beach. As the hotel overlooks the zoo the view is uninterrupted and you are not overlooked in the 07 rooms by any other room. Complete privacy. The lanais fit 2 chairs and a side table easily and are very large for a lanai. I was worried about the size of the rooms given other comments but we have 2 double beds and there is plenty of space. The 07 rooms also have a second window which overlooks the ocean to watch the sun go down. Lu Lu's the bar downstairs was noisy at night but shutting the doors cut out most of the noise. The airconditioning is very good and stays cold all night. The shower head and water pressure is superb. All round highly recommended.

There are more luxurious (and expensive) hotels elsewhere in Waikiki, but my wife and I agreed that the Park Shore offered the best location for us; a clean, not-overlarge, but quite satisfactory room (1121, I believe) with an eye-pleasing view of the beach and ocean; relative affordability; and very helpful staff. We found it quieter and less frenetic to be at very end of the Waikiki hotel strip, across the street from the zoo and a park, a walkable distance to Diamond Head. Nice that the beach area across the street from the hotel was sheltered by a breakwater. LuLu’s, the hotel’s second-floor open-air dining restaurant, seemed to have a varied and reasonable menu, and the sandwich shop adjoining the hotel entrance offered a quicker alternative. On Thursdays, for a more casual meal you might try the farmer’s market held in the courtyard of the Hyatt Regency up the strip. Overall we had a very pleasant experience at the Park Shore, and would not hesitate to recommend it. Though we lost a full day on Oahu thanks to United Airlines, the hotel understandingly modified our reservation from 3 nights to 2. We were still able to visit the Arizona and Missouri (with E Noa Tours – mahalo, Carlos!), and we did hike Diamond Head (took a cab to the entrance lot, but walked back to hotel), each of which should not be missed.

Room Tip: We had a nice view of the ocean, and woke early to the full moon suspended over it. Think seriously...
