We decided to spend the Labor Day weekend in town and be tourists, We checked in and go upstairs and can't get into our room. This past year I have had that problem at other hotels so I thought here we go again. I go back down to the front desk and have the key rechecked to make sure that it's working, The front desk clerk checked and found that she told me and wrote the wrong room number. At least it wasn't me this time.
The hotel is located near the beginning of Waikiki, Near the Hilton Hawaiian Village and the Modern Hotel, I liked that it was not in the busy part of town and didn't have to deal with crowds of people.
The special treat of cookies when you check in is a nice touch.
We were able to walk to Kapiolani Park to visit the Okinawan Festival and eat the delicious foods and see the entertainers. No worries about finding parking since we were able to park at the hotel.
We even went to see the participants at the 45th Waikiki Rough Water swim, things we wouldn't normally go to see.
We had a chance to try new restaurants that in my opinion are hidden gems, Hike Hawaii Cafe as well as Goofy Cafe both less than a block from the hotel
Overall the rooms are clean, the location is good and staff is professional. I would stay there again.
