A fantastic location, right in the middle of Waikiki Beach. You have a great beach area right in front, and you have plenty of dining & shopping in either direction. The rooms were dated, but clean & larger than many in Waikiki. There was a fridge & balcony where we had a "partial ocean view" to the side. We unfortunately did not have a room with new matresses, so the beds were pretty firm & bumpy. We still managed to get some decent sleep though. As far as noise, it was average for Waikiki, and I really don't know many quiet places in the heart of the city. It is just a busy city. If you are a pool person, this may not be the place for you. The pool was mediocre at best. Very small & on the side of the building so seemed shaded most of the day.
I was able to find a special deal if you booked via you mobile phone, but beware your "deal" becomes less of a bargain when you add in their daily "resort fee", and if you have to park a car on top of that, forget it. Added resort fees are a HUGE sore spot with me. If it is not an optional fee, and every guest pays it, then include it in the price, period. For me this is the equivalent of a bait & switch scam and just doesn't sit well. I would perhaps be more tolerable if the resort fee was minimal, but the Pacific Beach charges $20 PER DAY plus tax, for "amenities" which are a complete joke. The only amenity that we used was the water. You receive a $.50 cent disposable plastic water bottle at check in & you can fill it through a machine containing filtered tap water. Is this worth $20 per day? Not even close. You can buy a whole lot of 2 for $99 bottled water at ABC for $20. Another so called amenity is a "discounted" pass to the adjacent fitness center. I inquired at the fitness center, and they advised me the "discounted" price was $15 per day! Wow, what a deal, said dripping with sarcasm. These extra "fees" amount to over $100 for a 5 night stay, which is insane. I know this is a trend amongst hotels, but that doesn't mean it is good business practice. Thankfully, most of the Outrigger/Ohana properties do not charge amenity fees & hopefully this continues, because this is likely where my next stay will be.
TIP: We found an awesome happy hour special at the Top of Waikiki. $5 Sky Vodka martini's & discounted appetizers, with views to die for! It was absolutely amazing!
