I've been to Hawaii many times and this trip I had the pleasure of staying at the Equus Hotel in downtown Honolulu. To begin, the location of the hotel is really great - one block from Waikiki beach and one block from the big Ala Moana shopping mall, plus lots of restaurants. My room was spacious and kept meticulously clean by Ricky. And the bed was very comfortable. I usually find it difficult to sleep the first night in a new place, but not this time. There is parking under the hotel which is an added plus. Also, getting to and from the H1 highway is very direct making it very easy to get around, something I can't say for other hotels I've stayed at. The staff was always friendly and would go out of their way to help in any way. While this is not a five-star hotel located on Waikiki beach, you will not pay a five-star price. In short, this is a great hotel and I would definatlely stay there again, and would recommend it to anyone else.
