My fiance and I wanted a weekend getaway downtown, so we searched for the best deal. We found the Doubletree Alana had the best local/Kamaaina rate at $99 including parking. We had viewed the room prior to our stay and found it more than adequate for it's price. However, we were presently surprised upon our check in to find out that we had been upgraded to a larger suite with a kitchen and extra room. I believe it was the handicap room. It came with a large bathroom and a huge walk in shower.
Upon arrival we were greeted with warm cookies and a smile. The Bistro seemed like a great place for drinks but we opted for Subway right around the corner. The pool was heated and uncrowded. A nice options outside of going to the beach. For toursist, don't fret, the beach is only a few minutes away. If you are looking to spend time in a resort like environment, you are free to use the ammenities at the Hilton Hawaiian Village across the street.
We didn't use the gym, but we noticed that had one and it was in great condition.
Overall, I give this hotel two thumbs up for the cost, location and service.
