Were all those reviews in the months of March and April 2009 really independently done, or was there a planned strategy to up this hotel to #1 with a flood of high reviews, all at the same time? I chose this hotel because of its #1 Tripadvisor rating. It's a decent little hotel for the price (good value), but there is no way I would rate this the best in Waikiki. Why? No gym, no lanai, no restaurant, a bar that is only open a few hours every night, a mediocre continental breakfast in a tight little space (also doubles as the bar at night). Our room was spacious, clean, a little noisy. Free Internet access. Can't turn just one or two lights on - either all of them go on or all of them must be turned off. Cool black/grey/white decor. Beach towels and chairs for guests. 1/2 block from the beach. OK, many good stuff, but it's just a small botique hotel that is priced well for its location.
