Another great 4 night visit at the AP last week. They had a live Christmas tree in the lobby, amazing. We love the friendly, efficient staff here. The beds are really good, with nice cotton linens. The AC, which was needed when the trade winds ceased, was super. The housekeeping staff was very accommodating to all requests, including replacing a broken coffee pot. I liked the extra large full length mirror they provided. The location is great, especially if you like to walk. Only negative would be no WiFi in the rooms.
Rooms with views of Diamond Head are nice, although it is noisier being near Ala Moana Blvd.
Definitely avoid the IHop next door and head for the excellent Wailiana Coffee Shop on the corner, open 24 hours, with an all-you-can-eat pancake breakfast for under $7. They give a 10% discount to Aqua guests if you can remember to ask. There's a Food Pantry (grocery) hiding around the corner, so you won't have to buy food at the ABC Store. Bring snacks if you can! Food is really expensive in Hawaii.
