We stayed here one night to check-out Waikiki prior to visiting Maui and Big Island.
On this trip, we were more interested in seeing volcanoes than beaches, so we chose this hotel at the far end of the beach for the Diamond Head view. The view was much nicer than we expected from room 802. From the lanai, we could almost feel like we could reach out and touch Diamond Head it looked so close.
The room had been remodeled and offered a nice value for the price paid.
It's only a short walk to Waikiki Beach and the pier. In our short stay of about 16 hours, we walked to the other end of the tourist area along the beach to the Hilton, then came back along city streets. We like this end of the Waikiki because the hotels are on one side of the street and the beach is on the other side.
We were wide awake about 5:00 AM, so we walked down to the beach area for breakfast. Lulu's on the corner was closed, so we walked west. There were some people fast sleep on the sidewalk so we didn't talk too loud. The McDonald's was open, so we had breakfast outside with a nice view of the beach across the street. This could be the best McDonald's location in the world.
All in all the stay was a positive experience and we would stay there again if we wanted a room for a few days.
