“What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 March 2014

This was a last minute find while in Waikiki, but what a treat. On the 17th floor, overlooking the ocean, a 2 bedroom condo with kitchen and lounge room, we couldn't believe our luck. Staff extremely helpful, location the best, surrounded by ABC shops for all our needs, and for those who require that in between McDonalds and Eggs'n Things. Daily fresh linen was provided also, even beach towels. Highly recommend, but all condos are different as all privately owned, so research is required when booking, we were just lucky.

I went to Hawaii for Christmas 2012 with my family, it was honestly the best holiday I've ever had! This is a beautiful hotel, the rooms are so lovely! The breakfast is delicious, and loads to choose from. They give to a little cool bag thing to put all your breakfast in and take up to your room or to the beach/wherever which I found a little strange but I think its because the seats around the pool fill up so fast. The room we stayed in had a view of the ocean and it was so breathtaking to wake up to in the morning! On New Years Eve we could see all the fireworks from our balcony, and some people were on their surfboards in the ocean watching them.

The activities we did while we were there, we went up Diamond Head which is a must, the views are amazing. Whilst at the top we met a man called Mitch Berger who does 'Guides of Oahu'. We arranged for him to take us on one of his tours the next day and it was a really good experience. He takes you all through the rainforest and he knows literally anything and everything about Oahu and he is so passionate about it! We also went snorkelling at Hanauma Bay which is amazing!

As the hotel is right on the beach front, it is in excellent location for all the main shopping areas and restaurants.

After reading all of the other glowing reviews here, we decided to try this hotel for the first time.
After many trips to Honolulu previously, we had decided that for this trip wanted an apartment and this one certainly exceeded our expectations.

The apartment itself was very spacious with more than enough storage for all of our luggage and (large amounts of) shopping finds.
Having a full kitchen cannot be raved about enough and it was fantastic for breakfast plus the occassional "bitsa" meal after a long day of shopping and sightseeing.

We opted for the premium ocean front condo and recommend this highly. The views are simply lovely and worth the extra bit you pay for them.

The pool and spa were being reconditioned during our stay but with Waikiki beach just across the road this didn't bother us. We also loved being across from the sectioned beach-pool areas which are great for young families and early morning paddle boarders alike.

We used our spacious and well furnished lanai several times every day. It's a wonderful spot to relax and take in sounds of the ocean and the sights on the streets below. One sport we loved was watching the comings and goings of planes (don't worry, the noise was minimal if at all) and also spying cruiseships entering and leaving Honolulu harbour.

We were in town at the same time as the Pro Bowl on this trip (unplanned) and were lucky enough to walk thorugh the block party happening along Kalakaua Avenue. With all the bands and people around we wondered if the noise would carry to our balcony. It didn't bother us at all as some music was present but not loud, in fact we had a great time watching all the goings on from there until they packed everything up shortly after midnight.

The beds were very comfortable for our family group of 3 adults and 1 child. The kitchen contained everything we could ever need from cutlery and crockery to salt and pepper (how cool!) and coffee, the latter being replenished daily if required. The turn down service at night was an added bonus with towels changed and a delicious little snack provided too.

The housekeeping staff have a good eye for detail and our unit was always very clean and well provisioned. We didn't need to ask for anything in this department but I am sure if we did, it would have been provided promptly and with a smile, as with everything else!

The staff were wonderful and ever helpful, even calling our airline for us to organise things when we needed some help. A special shout out to Yasu and Russ who really looked after us during our stay. You guys made us feel so welcome and always greeted us with a warm and genuine smile. Thank you!!

We had a car for a couple of days during our stay and the complimentary valet parking was fabulous! For those reading and wondering what the catch is... there is none. It's convenient and on the premises so no need to wait for ages to have your vehicle delivered.

Location wise, this building is located at the eastern end of the strip. Still close enough to be a short walk to anything but far enough away for those who don't like to be in the thick of it all. We actually prefer to be in the thick of it and were concerned that this might be a bit out of the way but we loved the location.

There is a Waikiki Trolley stop just across the road and buses out the front and to the street behind, depending on where you are headed. Nothing is too far away. There are also a number of ABC stores of various sizes very close by for grabbing your supplies.
For groceries, there is a supermarket not too far a walk from the hotel on Kuhio Avenue (one street behind and a couple of short blocks along) for a larger shop.

Overall, we thoroughly enjoyed out stay here and although the building is not new and there are some signs of wear and tear, the condos are well furnished and appointed, clean and very spacious. We plan to come back again!

Thank you for a wonderful stay! :o)

Room Tip: Premium ocean front is our choice and recommendation.

We also booked a Luxury home on the beach in Waikiki only to be very very disappointed.We moved to the Aston Waikiki Beach Tower and from the moment we arrived they were Outstanding! From the valet to front desk to housekeeping. They actually turned our vacation around and thats not easy once things go wrong. Thank You to all the people at Aston Beach Tower! Everything was spotless.

Room Tip: The center suite are best but they all face the ocean.

The Aston was perfect for our short stay at the tail end of a business trip. I loved the BOB (bring own bag or breakfast on the beach). The room was clean and the beds comfortable. We had a partial view of the ocean upgrade and the view was spectacular. I can't wait to return to Waikiki and will for sure stay here again. I highly recommend it.

Hotel in perfect spot. Great ocean view and access to shopping. Tikis Bar and Grill as well as the continental breakfast was great. Staff was super friendly and accommodating. Complimentary beach towels and chairs for the beach. Got a great price on the room. Rooms do need some refreshing but nothing major. Bathroom old but not there to hang out in a hotel room! Cross the street and you are on the beach. Clean. Great service. Shuttles and transportation to everything right there with people to help. Loved every day. Will go back for sure.
