Great Location- Beach, pool, walking to shops and restaurants, very friendly staff all over. The rooms were big, clean and the views are terrific. The hotel restaurants were good for breakfast, and the one by the pool served a very nice lunch menu. The Shorebird gave us another 20% coupon after we gave the one that we got in a book at checkin.

Room Tip: We stayed in a "Family suite" which was a suite next to a regular 2 bed room in the corner...

We stayed 5 nights here in March 2013.
we picked this hotel mostly due to the location and tripadvisor reviews, and we were not disappointed. We were 2 adults and 2 kids ages 8 and 10.

nearby places that we visited (within 5-10 minute walk):

Henry's place for fresh fruit, sandwiches and ice cream. Apparently, this place is very popular among Japanese tourists.

Ginza Tonkatsu bairen. The best Japanese tonkatsu we've had.

Ramen Nakamura. Very satisfying ramen for about $10 each bowl, which is cheap for the area.

Roy's restaurant. Very average food at inflated price. We've eaten at several Roy's, and this place, along with the San Diego location, is the worst. Maybe Roy's as a chain is declining.

Marukame udon. Ok, more like a 15-20 min walk, but it's the cheapest meal you can have, at $5 per bowl. Rather plain noodles, nothing exciting. This place is popular I think mostly due to the cheap price.

House without a Key. We ate here for dinner. Average food, inflated price. Not worth it. View is the same as what you can get at our Outrigger hotel.

We recently stayed here for a 2 night "get back to reality stay" after being on the windward side for 8 days. The hotel is very nicely maintained and kept rigorously clean. We had exceptional help from Fernando at the check in desk. We had an ocean front room on the 2nd floor which during the first night was quite loud due to the folks partying at the restaurant below. Fernando promptly moved us into a corner suite with views to Diamond Head at no extra charge. That small move ensures that I will be back at this hotel again and again. Note - take advantage of the "barefoot" sales if you see them because they are a great deal. Some other things to note are that the beach is indeed a bit rocky as other reviewers have noted but not as much directly in front of the beach - more so to the right of the large stone jetty.

Room Tip: Try to get a higher floor room if you can - the revelers at the restaurant below can get loud at nig...

We LOVED this hotel! The staff was helpful, accommodating and friendly, the views in the end rooms were great, and the ambiance was delightful. This is a tasteful take on Waikiki-- fun but not too in-your-face. The location is awesome-- ON the beach. (The surf was so close to our room that we had to close the door on the balcony because it was so loud...a nice problem to have!) I heartily recommend this lovely hotel.

Room Tip: Be aware that the rooms at the beach end have a view. The rooms farther back have views of either t...

Our room was wonderful..big king bed with a part ocean view.The beach was great - right out the front of the hotel..we ate at "Duke's" which is a must..Uncle Bo's..Jimmy Buffet.

Room Tip: We had a big king bed with a partial ocean view on the 5t floor which was great..oversize room

We stayed for a week over the busy April school break and had a fantastic time here! Its one of the few hotels actually on Waikiki beach (most are not actually on the beach) and its on the quieter end. NOT to be confused with quiet, but not as crazy as the majority of the beach. I can see why they have alot of repeat customers - they are very friendly there and the accomodations are excellent. There are 3 restaurants on the premises and all are excellent. I recommend the Ocean House for breakfast and The Shoreline for happy hour. We had a delicious dinner at the grille by the pool while enjoying Hawaiin musicians - there is live music everyday 6-9pm. Our room was on the 15th floor with an ocean view - loved it! We could hear the live music up there but it was nice background music, not loud or intrusive.

Room Tip: We bought beach chairs and used them on the hotel beach and the other various Oahu beaches we went t...

Everything was wonderful. Check-in was quick, and easy, our room was nice, view was OK, and staff were helpful and polite.
I was a little disappointed in the beach, it was very small, I pictured it much larger, but it was fine.
We ate in each of the restaurants for breakfast and had a few issues, the buffet was stock with a lot of ehh items, and the items with substance (eggs, bacon. potatoes) were few. On the morning we ate at the buffet I waited in line for 15 min. and finally get to the substance part and it was completely empty, no eggs, no bacon, no potatoes, and no sausage. The people around me all waited for a few min. but nothing was brought out. I sat and decided I'd eat my fruit and then go up again. Guess what??? What are the chances??? I waited another 15 min. and the same thing happened again! I figured out that the trays that they were using were made for buffets for 20 people or so, too bad there were about 60 on line at all times. I got some yogurt and sat down and left hungry.
Another breakfast I found some hair in my waffles at a different place, and in that same place they ran out of items.
So, my only complaint about the hotel is the restaurants.
We needed a late check out and they were more than accommodating.
I think the hotel is located in a good spot and is fairly quiet.
I would definitely recommend this hotel to travelers.
