We spent 4 days in Waikiki before hopping over to Maui and stayed at the Outrigger Reef on a friend's recommendation. This hotel was so comfortable, we didn't want to leave.
I recommend an oceanfront view as the neighboring hotels/condos are tall and won't leave much to look at. Our balcony wrapped around the corner. We were on the 3rd floor, but heard nothing at night either on the beach or in the hallway. It was as quiet as the grave.
Kani Ka Pila Grille is on-site by the pool (as if you needed one with the ocean right there) and the food was terrific - breakfast, lunch and dinner. Meals are about $15 -$20. The hotel staff were super helpful.
Serenity Spa on-site gave a nice couple's massage, but it was twice what we could have paid in Maui. I'd shop around more.
The Fitness Center in the basement is bare bones, but ample if there aren't more than 6 people using it at one time. Free weights, bikes, treadmills and elliptical machines are available.
The Business Center also in the basement lets you print airline tickets for free. That was really nice.
Have the bell desk call you a shuttle to go to the major tourist sites ($13 round trip per person) and the airport ($10 round trip per person) - it's kills the cost of a taxi ($46). We found we didn't need a car rental since we weren't staying long or exploring all of Oahu. The shuttle met all our transportation needs. Just don't forget to bring cash to tip. Note that those with car rentals will pay an extra $25 a night for parking at the hotel (you won't find parking on the streets).
My only complaint was a slow internet connection. It was tolerable, but not the hi-speed we're used to on the mainland or on Maui. Everything else was plush, upscale and beautiful.
