We just had a very good stay at the Ala Moana Hotel in Honolulu.
*Full disclosure here that I was one of the lucky ones that managed to get the special $10.00 room rates.
I wasn't honestly expecting a lot at the price we paid, but we had a very nice room on an upper floor, with a private balcony with a table and 2 chairs and a view that went 180 degrees from the hills to Waikiki. The room was clean, comfortable, with a good bed, small kitchen area and even a couch/table and chair inside with a sitting area. The room was impeccably cleaned everyday and one my biggest comments about hotels of this era is usually the quality of the air and air conditioning units. Often they are noisy and start/stop to maintain the room temperature - and this was the opposite - very good overall.
The pool area and gym area was well appointed and the towel service which we used everyday for the beach was excellent.
Access to the Ala Moana Mall is the best - I don't think you could be any closer to the best shopping in Hawaii, with more parking than you'll ever need. There's also valet parking for a small fee and if you don't mind walking a short distance, you can also find free overnight street parking.
The added bonus was the access and proximity to the Ala Moana Park which is directly across the street. For those that enjoy swimming in the ocean, there is a dedicated 1000 metre swimming lane at the beach that's 100% protected from the waves. You can walk to the main Waikiki Beach area in about 10 or 15 minutes.
The Happy Hour at the The Signature Restaurant on the top floor of the hotel was an added bonus. Good food, drink and one of the best views in Honolulu.
Special thanks to Judy Pereira and GM Bill Comstock for handling a tough situation when the reservation system crashed on this deal offer.
I would definitely recommend this hotel.
