I will start my review agreeing with everyone's Con's. One will be fixed soon and that is the elevators which are going to be entirely replaced later this year and the others is large groups of kids (Stay at a higher priced hotel with less service) if you want to avoid kids.
Now for the Pro's of the Queen, this was our 8th stay at the Queen and far and away the staff is so accommodating and have been there for many years. We stayed in a Diamond Head View Room with a balcony and love the 02 and 03 rooms. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the pool area and the bar is getting revved up so I hope they keep working on that. The free Wi Fi was a nice surprise. The housekeeping was just fine and if I needed anything I just asked.
The front desk staff is awesome Jocelyn has always been very nice and helpful and was able to arrange a later check out for us which was much appreciated. The bell staff totally rocks Shane, Kawika, and Jared are the best. When it comes to choosing a hotel in Waikiki you can choose a full service hotel and pay for the view and the all the services that these hotels offer or you can economize and stay on Kuhio Ave and walk to the beach. OR you can stay at a great hotel close to Waikiki with a an AWESOME staff that actually remembers you when you return and provides a tremendous value. That hotel is the Queen Kapioliani Hotel. We will be returning to the Queen on our next visit and cannot wait. I always book with Merl right though the hotel and I asked for an 02 room and got just what I asked for.
One quick update as of April 1st self parking at $15/day changed to valet parking at $20/ day. At first glance I was man another $5/day but it was so nice not having to park my car in some of those tight spaces.
Thanks again for another great stay staff of the Queen.
