The Equus Hotel is in a great location being on the edge of Waikiki and within walking distance of central Waikiki, Ala Moana Mall and and many places to eat. It is also very convenient to buses that take you to Diamond Head, downtown Honolulu, Pearl Harbor and the airport.
From street level you have to climb a flight of stairs to get to the lobby and elevator. The elevator is very slow but you'll get where you are going eventually.
The room itself was very nicely decorated and clean. There was also a balcony although the main sight you can see is the building directly across from it. You can easily hear the traffic noise coming up from the street which probably won't keep you up but which you can often hear. There is a small refrigerator in the room along with a K-cup coffee maker which you sometimes need to ask to be replenished.
Interestly there is also a very small pool off of the lobby although we never saw anyone in it.
