Our family enjoyed a terrific Waikiki vacation here in early August. The staff is wonderful, the location is fabulous, the rooms are in very good shape, and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. We had a junior suite on the 13th floor (one floor below the rooftop pool). The room was on the north (city view) side and was very quiet. As others have noted, the view of the tired, old residential tower on the north side of the building is not ideal. Be aware that some of the junior view suites do not have balconies. We originally were in a junior suite on the 12th floor that had a six-inch ledges outside the two sliding glass doors. The oft-complained about Waikiki traffic noise heard at other hotels was non-existent in our room.
The room worked for our family of four (2 kids on the sleeper sofa), but the updated rooms are locked into an old hotel room layout. The bathroom is quite small. The room itself has a walk-in closet (great for putting baggage out of the way and hanging clothes), but there is no drawer space for clothing--if you're the kind of family that likes to unpack.
The pool on the 14th floor is small, but perfectly serviceable for an evening or sunset dip.
As for location, you're not on Waikiki beach, but it is an easy 5-minute walk. Early morning and late evening strolls along Waikiki are terrific. If you're the type that likes to shop, you're in the heart of the upscale shopping district, plus a block from Duke's Lane and its myriad vendors selling jewelry, crafts, and clothing in outdoor stalls.
Enjoy the complimentary coffee, iced cucumber water, tea, and pink lemonade in the lobby.
