I stayed for a week at this property while on business. The hotel was selected by the site I visited and I couldn’t have been more pleased with their choice. The property is contemporary, clean, and understated (dignified) “island”. From the valets to the front desk staff to the housekeeping folks, every single employee was gracious and smiling and genuinely, warmly friendly in the way you imagine they would be in paradise. And those warm cookies offered up by the front desk are, alone, worth the price of admission! Mmmmm!
Parking is valet only and $30 a day. For a slightly naïve Midwesterner, this seems pricey, but is probably very reasonable for the location. The car was safe and sound at night and appeared very quickly in the morning when business was at hand and time was of the essence.
The property is right across the street from the Hilton Hawaiian Village, endless shopping and dining venues, and the Waikiki beaches. Except for the pedestrian crossing light at the corner of Ala Moana Boulevard and Kalia Road, which may be the longest “Don’t Walk” in the history of pedestrian crossings, the beach is literally a five minute walk away.
Trees Restaurant & Bar on the Lobby Level was welcoming and the food was very good. I recommend the lemon chicken soup with white beans and crumbled feta, the shrimp and cucumber cocktail with charred lemon and horseradish, and the ubiquitous Mai Tai, as solidly expressed by my new all-time favorite bartender, Earl. Among the warm, friendly, “real” people I met during my stay, Earl and waitresses Natalia and Kira were among my favorites and stood out even among the great staff at this property.
