Great check-in as once the credit card was swiped, we were taken around the hotel by the receptionist who took us up to the room to complete the check-in process - nice touch.
We had a Diamond Head Ocean Front room on the 8th floor which looked out over the sea and Diamond Head. The other rooms view will be blocked by the Sheraton next door so if you want to guarantee the view, book this level of room!
The room was practical and clean. Bathroom was accessed through the wardrobe sliding doors - nice touch as with them open, you could shower and still look out to the view if you wanted. The hotel is popular with Japanese tourists and is a calm oasis from the hustle and bustle of Waikiki. We ate at House without a Key and had drinks watching the entertainment and the food and drinks were excellent. Sadly, we didn't eat at the other restaurants so cannot comment on those.
The beach area out front is quite small but walkways in front of the hotels either side take you to the longer Waikiki beaches.
The hotel is perfectly located on the beach and near to the shops on Kalakaua Avenue for high end shops such as Louis Vuitton, Tiffany etc and 10 mins from Ala Moana Shopping Centre. This hotel was a perfect choice for our short stay in Honolulu/Waikiki.
