Stayed at the Ala Moana Hotel via Luxury Suites because the advertised rate was 30% lower. Luxury Suites? This company manages units in this hotel that are privately owned but are available for rent to the public. Check-in and out is at the Ala Moana Hotel's front desk but housekeeping, etc., is not handled by hotel personnel but contracted by Luxury Suites. Because of this, my unit was not up to the standards of the hotel's regular units. There was no shower mat, the soap was not wrapped (it was used by the previous guest, yikes!), the phone book was several years old, shower handle pulled off easily and the toilet tissue dispenser was broken off the wall. Definitely not what I expected. / The hotel itself has been renovated and very comfortable. For non-tourists. This is a great location. It is located adjacent to the Ala Moana Shopping Center which is Hawaii's largest and boasts a large number of stores and restaurants. There's a large food court for the budget traveler. Ala Moana Beach Park is just two blocks away so walking to the beach is a snap. If you're looking for tourist action, hula shows and the like, you would need to take a cab or drive to Waikiki which is a 1 - 2 miles away. Warning, rush hour traffic is horrific so plan accordingly. All in all, except for the issues mentioned which you should not encounter if you booked directly with the Ala Moana Hotel, this is a great and convenient hotel to stay. If you're playing tourist, I would suggest you stay at a hotel in or near Waikiki where the beach, nightlife and shopping are all in walking distance.
