After reviewing the other reviews on TA about Hotel Renew the only thing that we can add is that the small boutique hotel does indeed feel like home. From the valet attendants, to the check in staff..this hotel was really cool. There are better hotels which are typically more expensive in the Waikiki area but this really felt like a seasoned travelers hotel.
Though it has a walking proximity to the beach, small bar-with limited hours-though Colby does make pretty good drinks at the bar, no refrigerators...they call them environmentally friendly drink coolers. Well they look like old beat up fridges that have the coolant removed. Don't tease the guests..if you don't want fridges then remove the placeholders. They even tell you that if you want them to be cooler you can get the ice off the 5th floor..(environmental trade-off??)
The thing that makes this hotel awesome is the staff. Even though we went Island hopping for a couple of days, when we returned they treated us like returning family. The hotel possesses a southeastern Asian calmness. A definite winner.
