My choice to stay at the Doubletree Alana was driven by the hotel's proximity to the Hawaii Convention Center and my desire to stay at a Hilton property to accrue more Hilton Honors points. The room was clean but rather small for an American hotel. I bruised my leg when I slipped trying to get into the shower/tub the first day. It's a big step up to get into and very slippery. The shower head was a little low for me, and I can't imagine how awkward it would be for taller men and women - although a hand-held attachment is also available. The toiletries provided are from Neutrogena and include a face moisturizer with a strong SPF. We were able to book a room with a small refrigerator and microwave (not all rooms had a microwave) for a discounted rate. The view from the 7th floor on the ocean side was nothing to write home about, but we didn't spend much time in the room. My colleague's room on the other side (mountain view) on the 8th floor was a little nicer. The fitness center is small but well-equipped. The hotel is a short walk from the convention center, the Hilton resort for beach access, and the restaurants/shops/hotels in Waikiki. I stopped at the ING Cafe across the street each morning for a bagel and coffee (large coffee for $1!!). The air conditioning never seemed to get our room very cool. We found out in the middle of the week that a colleague had a room in the nearby Ilikai Hotel that was twice as big with a complimentary continental breakfast and a large balcony with an ocean view for only $30 more a night. If it weren't for the Hilton Honor points, I might have wished I was staying there. Overall, the hotel was fine but not great. I'd recommend it if you are attending something at the Hawaii Convention Center.
