Quiet, friendly and well situated. There was no restaurant but plenty of places to eat within easy walking distance. Numerous shops to get breakfast. This was a little gem and great value for Waikiki.

Have stayed here a couple times for when we do events down in Waikiki. Cute little boutique hotel, they have a few less amenities than some hotels, but beautifully done rooms and lobby, friendly and helpful staff, activities if you are staying for awhile, and a nice little breakfast. Parking can be tricky (must valet but a tough place to pull over and then a VERY steep ramp to park that can damage your car so be careful if you end up having to park yourself). Very close to the beach, a lot of restaurants, convenience stores and all the sights of Waikiki. Prices are a little high, made worse by being in the center of Waikiki and all the new hotel taxes and parking is an extra $25 a day, but again for a boutique hotel, the price is worth the value. Will be back! :)

Just stayed there for a week and I can hardly fault the place. The staff are one of it's strong points, very welcoming, eager to help with any question and always greet you when you arrive back after a day of exploring. The rooms are well decorated and very clean, if I had to give a fault it would be the bed is a little small, but we did get the cheapest room available. Shower worked great, as did the air con. The complimentary breakfast was pastries, along with freshly squeezed juice. The location is another one of it's strong points, barely two minutes from the beach and being at the end of Waikiki suited our needs perfectly. The beach area wasn't overcrowded and it was a good location to exploring, for example right next to the zoo. Really would recommend.

Room Tip: Only rooms on one corner have balconies, "room with ocean view" doesn't necessarily me...

We had a good stay at renew, the place is fair located although a bit at the end of everything on Waikiki but fine if you want a bit more peace and quiet. Overall the place is good but the amenity fee seems stupid...if you do not have a choice, then make the fee part of the overall price which, including the fee, is more than fair. Breakfast is nice but not enough to feed a hungry man (unless on a diet:)).

Room Tip: Get as high up as possible

This place is perfect close to town and beach. Comes with access to a pool the staff are super friendly and helpful and the free internet is super fast!!!!! Our room is on the 5th floor and is on a side street so it isn't noisy. Our air con is a bit noisy but it's so hot that I don't care. Free DVD rental also it's really good. Highly reccomend

I stayed with a friend for a week in early March and had absolutely nothing to criticize about the hotel. The staff were amazing, always friendly and attentive, the room was quiet and immaculately clean, and I did not find the resort fee exorbitant as it allows you free wifi, free beach equipment, free DVD rentals in the lobby, Playstation in the room and access to the Marriott across the street.
The hotel is half a block from the beach on the Kapiolani Park end of Waikiki and the relative peace and quiet that half-block provided was surprising. No beach view from the room.... but if you want to see that go outside!
The breakfast buffet was plentiful and fresh and was a great way to start your day on the beach with the towels and chairs provided by the hotel.
Planning another trip to Honolulu in the fall and will very very likely stay at the Renew a second time.

As others have reviewed, this hotel is in a great location and the staff are excellent. Our room was very comfortable, clean and well equipped. The view however was depressing to say the least and we spent very little time looking out of the window! We were only booked for one night so it was not a big problem, but how much better it could have been!

Room Tip: Ask about the view from your window!
