“Wonderful Staff, Awesome Views”
Reviewed 5 January 2014 via mobile

Our family stayed here in early November and were very pleased! Just a few blocks from the beach and shopping. The front desk staff was most accommodating, the room was great, especially the lanai, and we had no complaints. Good value for the money!

My wife and I had 9 wonderful nights during Christmas and New Years at this hotel.
It was close proximity to shopping, beaches, golf course, and rental car locations.
The rooms were recently renovated and were always kept cleaned by housekeeping staff.
There is a spacious patio for outdoor dining or people watching. The kitchenette is perfect, as we all know, eating out everyday can get very expensive. Unfortunately, the pool was being renovated; however, we did enjoy the nice hot tub. On the 6th floor, this hotel also has coin laundry machines, sauna, 6 BBQ's, fitness room, and a convenience store (which was open on Christmas Day).
We were very impressed with front desk personnel named Amosa. Whether we need beach towels for the hot tub or we needed our luggage stored away, Amosa was alway happy to serve us with a smile. He even refused my gratuity…. hmmm?? (this guy deserves a pay raise).

The parking is operated by a separate management company. Expect to pay $25 per day for hotel guest (or $35 per day for non-guests).

We look forward to booking this hotel again next year and swimming in the new pool.

We had a fantastic four night stay with our two daughters. We all liked this hotel and the staff was very friendly and helpful. We stayed in a room with kitchen at the penthouse with ocean view. The łfacilities are excellent and there is a Enterprise car rental office at the premises which is convenient.

Not sure how my husband actually liked the hotel but I was not impressed that they forced him to wait for a 3 PM check in when he was leaving at 8 PM or earlier for an 10:50 PM overseas flight. We booked the room for him as he would have had to sit in the airport from noon until 10 PM when boarding the flight and since he wasn't feeling well, we paid $183 on express deals for less than 5 hours.
Maybe there was no option, but that seems very unlikely. Very disappointing that one person could not be fitted in somewhere.

For a great price, the reservation clerk at the front desk decided to double the awesomeness by giving us a great view of the city, Iolani High School, the Ala Wai Canal, the Ala Wai Golf Course, and the mountains. It was amazing. We had a King bed, the shower was a little too small but it was fine, there was a huge chair to sit on in the living room, and a lot of work space.

There was also a large refrigerator, full kitchen with utensils, soap/scrubber, dry cloth's, and more. There was also coffee and condiments.

Although we only stayed for one night, we wish that we could have stayed longer because the room darkening drapes allowed us to enjoy waking up later.

Service was great!

I had a fantastic weekend stay. Front Desk and Security staff were very helpful and attended to any need or question I had. Rooms were quality and affordable. My only gripe was with housekeeping entering my room without sufficient notice. However, I had a great overall stay. I would definitely recommend and return.

Merry Christmas!

Our stay at the Aqua Skyline was great! Check in was a breeze & the staff were all so nice and friendly. I want to that the GM Brian Kovaloff for making sure our stay was memorable. I mentioned that it was a special vacation for my partner and he made sure that all our accommodations were met to my specifications! The view from the penthouse is excellent, and I would recommend this hotel over the large resorts in Waikiki.

Room Tip: The penthouse rooms are worth it!
