Once a playground for international royalty, Hollywood elite, and heads of state, this legendary pink-hued retreat is ushering in a new era of Hawaiian-style luxury on Oahu’s golden Waikiki Beach with striking décor and unmatched service. Breathe in the salty air along an endless stretch of sand, or take sanctuary in a private beachfront cabana. The innovative Abhasa Spa soothes the soul, while Azure, the island's seafood mecca, delights the senses with fresh and innovative fare. Classic Hawaiian design pays homage to a majestic heritage, while contemporary appointments lend a subtle sleekness to 529 expertly furbished guestrooms and suites, each one aglow with the rays of the island sun streaming through open windows.
The hotel itself is quite beautiful. Though there is a very small pool, the pool deck is very comfortable and private. There is a fabulous view of Diamond Head on the beach. It's also not a mega hotel, so the number of people wasn't too overwhelming. The delicious muffins were a very nice touch, as well as the staff attention on the pool deck. Great location.
Our room seemed small. There were too many reasons we had to call for help, including repairs to the room and keys not working. All resolved, but annoying. I don't think a hotel of this caliber should be having these kind of problems. The price tag is very steep and I wasn't convinced it was worth it.
Really good rooms and service.
The gym was not good!
Location is tops, literally the best part of Waikiki Beach fronts the hotel. Amazing history, second only to the Moana Surfrider. Very romantic, but not much stuff to do for kids.
AC in historic wing could be better. Pool is very small. Not sure why families bring kids here, they'd be much happier at one of the bigger resorts (including the Sheraton right next door).
Though we were in the heart of Waikiki, it did not feel like we were anywhere near the hustle and bustle that is the Waikiki of today. It truly felt like a getaway. Service was stellar, the staff was friendly and attentive, the setting and atmosphere can't be beat. You've spoiled us; we can never stay in another Waikiki hotel. TRH is the one for us.
Minor gripes about cleanliness. Found a charm and a bobby pin left by previous room occupants, and toilet had a few hairs and spots also from previous occupants.
Historic, iconic hotel, still the best
The beach the ambiance
Décor of main hotel was impressive however the waterfront tower that we stayed in was less than impressive. Without the oceanview it would rank average to poor.
Pool attendant was rather rude.
Excellent location for beach access, shopping and dining.
The Royal Hawaiian was a stunning stay to end a perfect holiday in the Hawaiian Islands.
Bar closes early at 11:15, not at 12 as they will tell you.
It was absolutely beautiful, the bed was the most comfortable I have ever slept in!
nothing! it was wonderful
Good service, the only hotel with beach service and for free.Excelente location . Perfect bed .
Bathroom need reconstruction .
We stayed in a partly ocean-view room and loved the location of this hotel. The Waikiki Beach is right in front and they provide beach chairs and towels at no additional cost. The room is cleaned up two times a day, and that's perfect with the guests who frequently jump in and out of the ocean all day long shedding sand. The food at the beachside restaurant is also great. Also there are many great restaurants within walking distance. My husband and I had a great time.
The position of the hotel,the view from the room and the cleaning staff had a wonderful attitude to the guests and there duties. The reception staff were also excelent.
The refurbishment has torn out the soul of the Hotel. The new menue leaves a lot to be desired. The staff at the concierge desk were not of the standard we had become to expect from our previous stays at this hotel.
Location, prestige, appearance, history.
Confusion about non-smoking room during check-in. Although non-smoking preference indicated during booking, we were directed to a smoking room at first, then a non-smoking for one night on a lower floor and moved the next day to another floor (inconvenient unpacking and packing).
The location is amazing, the are staff fantastic. It's a piece of history you shouldn't miss if you want to visit Wakiki. It was the perfect honeymoon!
Excellent service. Wonderful atmosphere.
