Stayed 3 nights at the Circle, mid Feb 2012, and which has just been refurbished. Best rooms are oceanfront, ok, they cost more than partial ocean views, but give views of Waikiki Beach as good as any other hotel in the area at a fraction of their prices. The unusual shape of the hotel (like a Chinese lantern) was ideal when the property was built, as can be seen from the black and white photo in reception, when the property was surrounded by sand dunes and palm trees with a view in every direction. Progress has caught up, and hotels and condo's have now almost encircled the hotel. However, the position, is superb, it's at maybe the best spot on Waikiki Beach. For price and sea view, it's a winner, with a balcony. Room size, well, it is a circular building and is rather quaint and "compact". Room comfort and cleanliness, very good. Amenities, it's just a place to stay. There's no restaurant, however, there is an Eggs n' Things diner at the front (no business connection to the hotel). But it's only open from 6.00 am to 2.00 pm, and there's always an endless queue of mainly young Japanese tourists waiting to get a seat and serving. Would I stay there again, most certainly.
