We stayed from Friday to Monday and it was the perfect setting for relaxing and being treated well. We spent most of our time on the lanai so that we could soak up the Diamond Head and ocean view. The nightly music at House Without A Key was audible from there as well. We love everything about Halekulani!!!
The reviews I've read did not do it sufficient justice.... This Impeccable, immaculate, unique facility with it's extremely extraordinary, phenomenal hosting was superb. I recommend this place to every and any one who wants quality....7 stars and two thumbs up :I)
Beautiful hotel, excellent location. Would definitely recommend Halekulani for luxury and vip service.
Breakfast buffet is a little poor considering its cost $30 per person
This is an amazing hotel. Georgeous, and classical all at the same time. If you can't afford to stay there, at least stop by and have a cocktail at sunset!
We stayed for 7 night's this Aug 2009 it was one of the best places we have stayed at .The service is top notch and the people really care about your satisfaction while your there. The buffet in the morning is a can't miss great food and service. We are already planing our return trip in the very near future. We also booked a privite island tour while we were there through the hotel and it was fantastic . We went to places you would not normally see through a regular circle island tour this is one I would recommened to everyone if you can afford it!! Anthony was our driver and he shared the island culture and some hidden places on the island it was great we were out for over 6 hour's and saw the entire island. Be prepaired it is expensive but if you want the best you have to pay for it. Enjoy!!
Aloha, We stayed at the Halekulani for a week in January 2009. The service was consistently excellent. Wait staff, bell boys, concierge, maids, room service - every single employee we encountered went way above and beyond to make sure our needs were met, and then some. That said, the hotel rooms and furnishings were something of a disappointment. The decor seemed tired and worn, and even the mid-range rooms were small. On the whole, the hotel interior seemed to have seen better days, and would not compare favorably to hotels on the mainland at less than half the price. Still, the service and the food made up for that deficiency, so we still felt like we got our money's worth. We would absolutely return to the Halekulani, were we to visit Oahu again. However, our next visit to Hawaii will probably be to one of the other islands, simply because the town and its architecture, like the Halekulani's interior, seem to hold on to their glory days of the 60's and 70's, maybe through inertia or want of a new formula. Think Hawaii 5-0 reruns on your big-screen plasma TV, and you've got the picture, Dano. Mahalo!
We can only say wonderful things about the Halakulani Hotel. It is beautiful: from the rooms to the gardens, to the wall-less reception desk, and common areas. The food in the restaurant, The House Without A Key, and room service were superb. From our room it appeared the waves were breaking under the hotel. What a georgeous optical illusion. But...the best part was the people and the service they provided. We were always greeted warmly and our name was always used. Every question was answered. For example, we admired a flower in the garden and asked what was its name at the concierge desk. Flora is certainly not their specialty and they appologized for their ignorance. About an hour later we receive a knock on our door and the anser was delivered in a folder with a 10 page print out on the flower in question. We loved the little gift left for us each night after room service turned down or bed and the welcoming gift when we arrived of the chocolates and fresh fruit. I have traveled where the employees are courtious but here they were warm and friendly and helpfull. We will return!
A beautiful hotel situated right on the ocean. The views of the water and Diamond Head are fantastic, and the proximity to restaurants, shops and other things to do is terrific. If you just want to lounge by the pool, the chairs are very comfortable and the staff incredibly helpful. The service overall is simply out of this world. They can help with any kind of arrangement, from rental cars to running and hiking options. The rooms are beautiful and sitting out on the patio was a great way to end the day. We absolutely loved our stay in paradise!
the staff know us by our last names and they are very friendly and professional. Ture aloha spirit. When I asked for hot water the first day, the second day they gave me an electric pot so that I can hot water anytime. Excellent in attending to details and very sensitive to guess' needs. It's pricy, but you will feel like a king staying there. Excellent location but not noisy. The room is spacious and the amenities are top of the class. I even ran into a few movie stars there.
Great to get away from it all and have the satisfaction of beingm taken care of at all times, moose mcgilicuddy's is a great palse to relax of lewers St.
