“Woo-hoo, Oahu!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 February 2014

Lovely accommodations, though you need to be aware of check-in times. The island is lovely, drive everywhere you can. The gym needs to have a fan, but otherwise it's better than average. Do your hop around the island plans before you get there; concierge didn't have much to offer. Try the cruise around the islands, it's the one thing we missed. But Oahu has plenty to do in and of itself. Climbed Diamond Head (it's long!), went to beach and to a botanical park in the north where several movies were filmed. Gorgeous!

This was my first time in Hawaii and I really liked this hotel. The suite was huge and the technology in the rooms was great. There was a TV built into the mirror of the bathroom. The roof top pool is very nice and not busy at all. I would recommend this hotel to others.

This is a new resort..essentially timeshare, but part of the Hilton Family. It has all the most recent 'bells and whistles' and super eco-friendly. The staff are so, so helpful and the resort itself is right in the middle of Waikiki. There is a neat snack bar on the Lobby level and a super skyline lounge on the roof with the ultimate views over Honolulu. 'On a clear day...you can see forever'.
I defy anyone to say they would not like this place. Why only 4 stars, then. Two small 'caveats'...
There is no swimming pool. The rooftop has a plunge pool, which everone seemed to enjoy. Help you cool off in the sun. The resort, though, is only a block from the beach, so avid swimmers are not too adversly affected. The last point concerns parking. There is only valet and it is expensive ($35 per day!!!) This however, is in common with all cities and the Waikiki hotels so we can't shout too much. Like me, though, you might do without a car and use the money for all the nearby shops and restaurants....Believe me, you will enjoy here.

Room Tip: The rooms are all great. You might get a better view on the 'Diamond Head' side of the resor...

Pros: great location if looking to stay in Waikiki, central to shops, restaurants and everything Waikiki has to offer; all suites; brand new; awesome large bathroom with vanity, dual sinks, high tech toilet, rain shower, tub that has water coming down from the ceiling (a little odd, but get they are trying to be different and high tech); secure access to your floor with key card; free laundry machines on each floor; clean and spacious suites with fully stocked kitchenettes; nice views; nice friendly staff and valet; great for families and small children; quiet and couldn't hear other rooms through the walls which is always a plus

Cons: small pool, but we never used it so it didn't affect our stay; can hear street traffic at all hours, but wasn't so bad it was a deal breaker- you are, after all in central bustling Waikiki; no room service or restaurant- but they have a kitchenette in every suite; not the largest suite but great use of space and floor plan; check out time is 10 am; no frills hotel but it's new with luxurious bathroom; valet parking is steep for this type of hotel in my opinion but there isn't any other choice ($35 per day); not much of a balcony if you're into that

Overall, we had a great stay and would stay again and recommend to others. It's a new hotel so it was a lot quieter than Sheraton or other nearby hotels which we preferred. Our toddler enjoyed her stay and was very comfortable. Great location close to everything in Waikiki. We've stayed at the Sheraton, Royal Hawaiian, Hyatt and for the price, prefer this hotel. Especially if you like privacy and quiet.

Tips: grab breakfast at Island Vintage Coffee in the am- great coffee, smoothies, breakfast plates and acai bowls! Also those with little kids, there is a little water spray area outside hotel near the Beach Walk :)

Brand new club in the heart of Waikiki ! Excellent location and staff was great. Room was small but the use of space was excellent. Technology is evident in this hotel as amenties included a TV inside the bathroom mirror and a fully electronic toilet. This reminds me of a Japanese hotel.

Very nice property, everything was in perfect condition, fairly close to the beach and extremely close to shopping and restaurants. Ruths Chris, PF Changs, Cheeseburger in Paradise and Yardhouse all in the same complex. Parking is $35 per night valet only so might be better renting from one of the many car rental offices close by unless you need the car each day. Would definitely use this place again.

Great location, walking distance to the beach, shopping and dinning. The facility is beautiful, but the the housekeeping is poor. Our room was only cleaned one time on the 2nd morning,I arrived Thurs. night and Sun. morning it was cleaned and I and to have an argument with the housekeeping manager to get shampoo by the next Thursday, 7 days later. That was the day that we had a cockroach in our bed and when we talked to the Manager, he said, "I guess one got away." I guess I will never stay at this place again.
