“No complaints - great hotel for families”
Reviewed 14 July 2014

We just returned from a week at the Hyatt Place with our two children, aged 6 and 8. We loved our huge room, with plenty of space for luggage, and for each person to have their own corner to rest or read. Very convenient to have the toilet separated from the sink, and nice partial view of the ocean from our ocean-view room on the 17th floor (another hotel blocked part of it).

The free breakfast is a godsend for hungry kids who don't want to wait for food. We liked that it started at 6:30 AM for our jet-lagged kids who were up at 5 AM. Maybe not all the food is to everyone's taste, but there are a lot of choices. My son really liked the miso soup and rice option, as well as the usual cereal, toast, and hot choices. Coffee was really good.

The pool is small and a little boring, but for little kids, it's the perfect size for a before-bed dip, and it seemed to be very popular with the under-10 set. The workout room is roomy - you don't feel like you're on top of other people like so many workout rooms in hotels. The laundry takes visa cards - no fiddling with a roll of coins to do laundry!

Housekeeping was efficient and good. Front desk staff was very helpful giving out bus directions, beach towels, and ordering cabs. Free apples in the lobby, and kids get free sand toys. Fun lei-making on Friday afternoons. A quick two-block walk to a beach with a breaker, so little kids can play without fear of getting knocked over by big waves.

Use Charlie's taxi service to and from the airport - very efficient. If you book ahead and let them know when you're landing, they'll be waiting for you outside baggage claim.

Green Features: You have the option of reusing towels. They have a power switch at the door you can switch off when you leave so all power stops being used.

MariaTS48- We really enjoyed reading about your experience at the Hyatt Place Waikiki Beach! Our hotel is perfect for those families traveling with younger kids, and the pool is especially a highlight for them to blow off steam after a long day of sightseeing. The spacious guest rooms are great too, nobody ever feels on top of one another. Potential guests will appreciate reading your remarks about the ease of our on-site laundry and fitness room facilities. We are glad that you took advantage of our transportation partnership with Charlie's Taxi service to get back and forth from the Honolulu airport.

Front desk staffs are patient, but very inefficient. Valet parking folks are professional. On the other hand, elevator wait is 10-15 min long. Breakfast is free and interesting. Overall experience is just fine.

Room Tip: book online instead of talking to clueless hotel reservation people

wwtraveler2010- We have never heard a guest report that our gallery hosts are inefficient, and can assure you this is not our standard. Allow us to apologize if the elevator wait times caused any inconvenience.

one very good thing is free breakfast. rooms are ok not bad not great and it is really close to beach and shopping area.
one thing would have prefered is that if they had resturant on location they have bar in the lobby but do not allow to take drinks to your room.

Hyatt place is about three blocks off the beach at the eastern end of Waikiki beach, and I loved that! City bus is right there that can take you all over....and the valet were super helpful with this first time visitor to Hawaii! Breakfast being included was great.....hot food every morning, with a variety of cereals; everyday fresh pineapple, oatmeal, bagels, yogurt and juices. Great place to stay!

Now this is a BIG PLACE. Two towers about 20 stories high. They offer breakfast every morning like many of the Hyatt places do but they manage it well. I am an early riser (there at 6:30 am when they start) and my friend who I traveled with runs to breakfast at the last minute every day. The same offering and quality were available for us both. The food choice was pretty good, no made to order omelets but they did have scrambled eggs or some other egg omelet thing with bacon or sausage every other day with their daily offerings of fresh fruit, juices, coffee, Danish, oatmeal, cereal, pickled cucumber, white rice and kimchi.

The rooms were all refurbished although be forewarned that the lowest class of rooms with the city view are really small with a fabulous shower but small. The other classes of rooms are large with the tub shower combo. We stayed in the city view for half our stay then moved to the larger rooms for the remainder. The elevators in the main tower are slow and there is only two of them. The second tower has three elevators and I like that tower better. Both have access to the third floor food area.

BIG PLUSES: washing machine on the premises, lei making class on the premises. Right across the street from Marriot where everyone picks up for tours if they don’t come directly to your hotel which many do, close to the beach( Location, location, location), block and a half away, great concierge people, and housing keeping is polite and thorough.

Small minuses: the front desks people could be nicer although they were efficient. They made you feel like you were bothering them. The food area was small for so many people but it worked as you could take your food back to your room with the trays they provided for you in your room.

Room Tip: lowest class of rooms with the city view are really small with a fabulous shower but small. The othe...

Aloha MsFroggy32,
Mahalo for taking the time to share your honest and detailed feedback with us. We are delighted to read that you enjoyed our extensive variety of a.m. Kitchen Skillet items available daily. There is a vast selection of guest rooms available at the hotel varying in size and layout. It is great to read your praises of our on-site laundry facility, lei-making class, and central location. We regret if you did not experience the exceptional aloha spirit felt throughout the hotel, and can assure you this is an atypical scenario. It would be a pleasure to welcome you back on your next return to Waikiki!

we stay at hyatt place in waikiki last month for a week. it's close to everything : beach, restaurants, shopping area, bus stops, etc. our room is nice, big and has partly mountain view, not bad consider the price (most rooms are $200). free breakfast is a big plus, when you in hawaii you don't want to spend too much $/time in the morning meal, just feed yourself and head to the ocean! The only downside is the bathroom is too small, only fit for one person , and the toilet is in the bathroom, you can image the awkward.

Room Tip: choose a mountain view room, it's quieter.

Aloha Lin H,
Mahalo for choosing to stay with us for a week! We are flattered to hear how much you appreciated our central location, spacious guest room, and complimentary a.m. Kitchen Skillet. The shower and toilet are separated by a door, which allows for more privacy while another guest uses the sink and mirror on the other side. We regret if the layout caused any inconvenience, and hope you will return to us again soon.

We staid for a stopover, and had spent a couple of days at the Hilton before. The Hyatt offers good value, rooms are rather large, staff is super friendly. It's not really at the beach, and one needs to be lucky to see the ocean, but it's a good place to start from and there is plenty of beach on o'hau anyway. It's probably not the right place if you look for a resort style hotel, but if you are about to go around, that's a good choice.
