The answer to "just give me a room that looks like your internet picture" was:
"Sorry we gave that to your cousin"
Hookers outside, tattoo parlour next door, crappy shady pool area, broken lanai furniture (lanai was so small our backs were to the htl and our knees hit the railing), burned linens, just a horrible experience. We were unable
to move as it was spring break and everything still available was over 400/night
(and we had 4 rooms).
Don't say "you're never in the room anyways" because this hotel will truly upset you.
Ironically, the Honolulu daily newspaper featured the Bamboo as a neat new boutique hotel while we were there-- and they showed the picture of the one room given to our cousin!
