- Good Service
- Good Room
- Good Location
- Recycling Trash (rare to find in US)
Amazing time, recommend to everyone.
Pros: The pool is really nice! The rooms were luxurious and the staff were very helpful.
Cons: It's close to the beach, but not on it. The TV's need an upgrade. It would have been nice if the pool was open later. We watched people swim from our balcony at another hotel while ours was closed.
Pros: Staff was very professional and catered to every need
Cons: View is slightly obstructed below the 17th floor but still has amazing sunsets, everything else was perfect
Offering the world-class Trump lifestyle, this contemporary Honolulu hotel is just 1 block from the white sands of Waikiki Beach and the designer shops of Luxury Row. Diamond Head is 2 miles away.
Cons: First of all, the bed had a sunken mattress that seemed to have been there forever. I have a disc herniation on both the neck and the back and the bed just killed me. I'm sure the previous guests had complained but a bit shocked that it wasn't replaced.....or maybe all the rooms had same sunken mattresses. For us, terrible mattress.
Secondly, the pool was way too small.
Pros: When we first pulled into the valet, I reached for my bag out of the back of the vehicle and was told, "Please let me get that. You shouldn't have to lift a finger here at the Trump." That sense of service and attention to detail defined every aspect of our stay. The facilities and service were top notch.
Jet Luxury @ The Trump Waikiki puts you within a 10-minute drive of Honolulu Zoo and Waikiki Aquarium. Guests can indulge in massages, and Wai olu Ocean View Lounge serves lunch and dinner. An outdoor pool and a bar/lounge are other highlights, and rooms at this luxurious hotel feature soaking tubs and kitchenettes.
Pros: Private beach means it is never overcrowded. Friendly, professional staff. Dolphin Lagoon a must experience for kids. Big, comfortable room with comfortable bed, nice bath amenities. All toilets have a bidet, which is a nice surprise. Beautiful grounds and atmosphere.
Cons: Above average humidity for this time of year. We were told it was due to the El Nino from winter. Small pool (and number of chaise lounges) that can get crowded quickly. Food from the Seaside Grill and Plumeria is overpriced and okay, at best. Drinks overpriced, but tastes great.
Pros: Kahala is located close enough to the city action yet far enough away where it's remote. Though the pool area was relatively small, it was never crowed. The dolphin lagoon and sea turtle exhibit was quite amazing. Beach was also gorgeous and calm. No complaints about the Kahala. Would definitely visit again.
Cons: Wish there was good snorkeling right around there but that's asking for too much!!
Pros: The staff and growns are amazing
Cons: The dolidpin and turtle tanks, way to small for them to live

Pros: Staff helpful though it did take half hour to find the reservation. Clean and extra nice room. Primo location
Cons: Very pricey even for Waikiki. Extra loud bar area
Pros: The Modern is off the beaten trail and appreciated how relaxing the atmosphere was. The pool area is beautiful and calm, and if you need to relax further the sunset pool is just the ticket. All restaurants and bars are excellent in the Modern too.
Pros: Staff was excellent
Cons: Beds could have been more comfortable
Pros: Beautiful hotel. Study bar is nice with good cocktails, rooms are nice and housekeeping is good. Difficult to find space at pools and they don't have chairs on the beach. During peak times like Christmas / NY it makes it tough to secure space. Service at the restaurant by the pool was very slow. Painfully slow... I would return but challenged to stay there again @ $500/ night unless everything is perfect.
Pros: Love it. Honolulu is known for old resorts and hotels. Modern's building isnt really new, however, all the internals have been renovated so that it feels "modern". Great stay for young hip couples.
Cons: Parking is a little expensive. $35 and they charge you everything you get your car in and out. Other than that, we had an awesome experience.
As Honolulu's ONLY full-service lifestyle hotel, THE MODERN HONOLULU offers a contemporary luxury experience. The highest rated hotel in our class in Honolulu, Forbes Travel Guide says, “The Modern Honolulu lives up to its name: it's modern without being trendy, it's hip without being stuffy. This sleek hotel is perfect for the urban traveler who tends to mix business with pleasure.”
Pros: Liked the location, the staff, the room itself, the laundry, the media room and the zen garden. Everyone super nice and good humored. Security is good. Plus on the one day it rained hard, there were board and card games available at the desk. Wahoo! I'd definitely stay there again.
Cons: Elevators are torn up and the apartments next door run down so initial impression was concern that the room would be too but thankfully it wasn't. Concierge was nice but didn't read guest well or represent correctly what the gently insisted upon "update for owners" was - which was another timeshare presentation. Only truly negative feeling about the whole stay was feeling dogged by concierge desk about it. However, I went and it was fine.
Pros: Nice room, nice staff very clean and updated.
Cons: Pool was too small, there wasnt a bar in the hotel. The parking costed 30 dollars extra. Location is kind of out of the way
Pros: The staff was exceptional. Good location, you can walk to anywhere. The resort even has a room that you can shower up at and supplied with shampoo etc.
Cons: The washer and dryers weren't always all working.
Pros: The location was great. Basically anything you want to get to in Waikiki is within a 20 min walk. The rooms are well appointed and comfortable. The staff were very attentive and helpful.
Cons: They try to push a time share or some sort of thing on you. We didn't go to the presentation but we are on our honeymoon and no I don't want to take a morning to sit with you and listen to how I should buy a room at the Wyndham. Could have used more sitting space in the room and the balcony was small.

Pros: Centrally located hotel with a very popular restaurant/bar located on the ground level.
Cons: This is a very busy hotel that lacks a "real" lobby. Some people might not even notice this, but it may the stay feel odd, sort of unofficial since the only time we interacted with any staff was when we checked in.
Pros: Location, cleanliness,amenities,value
Cons: No dislikes
Pros: Great location on the beach.
Cons: Some of the staff tried but didn't know basic things.
Elevators have a strange call system and are very slow and crowded.
Pros: Smack dab on the beach in the best part if Waikiki. Staff was super friendly. Pillows were the best.
Cons: Pool area too small.. Difficult to get a chair. Piol, hot tub closed too early. Bar so crowded difficult to get a place to sit.
Pros: The staff was amazing!!! Everyone was willing to go the extra mile to help out. The location is amazing and in the heart of Waikiki!
Cons: Wifi Connectivity is limited to 3 devices and customer support cannot change this.
The lack of a full bath tub was disappointing.
Pros: Excellent location. Nice that there is an available laundry available. Decent size rooms. Friendly staff.
Cons: Not crazy about Duke's. Mediocre food and service. Pool area is on the small side.

Pros: The staff was wonderful and the Mai Tai bar was a great place to sit and watch the sun go down.
Rooms were very comfortable
Cons: This place is expensive, it really helps to be in the mindset that you aren't bargain hunting when you stay here.
If you are here in peak season and want to take advantage of beach chair or umbrella rentals you may want to book them before you are onsite.
Pros: My girlfriend and I agree that The Royal Hawaiian is our go-to hotel for our stay-cations. We LOVE it there. It's hard to even consider other local hotels. The staff, the facilities, the service, and the way that the hotel feels secluded even though we're in the middle of Waikiki... there's so much to love about this place. This is our second year in a row staying here, and we'll definitely be back. Mahalo to everyone there for continuing to impress us.
Cons: This space intentionally left blank. :-)
Pros: on the beach
Cons: They charge for a beach chair 45.00 daily.
very crowded at pool and pool is very small.
Pros: Have dreamed of staying at the Royal Hawaiian for many years. The vacation more-than lived up to expectations.
The adjacent mall and food court provided entertainment, shopping and reasonable meal choices.
Cons: Mid-week was peaceful and serene. By the weekend the place was filling up with lots of tourists. Can't believe how many people were in Waikiki in general.
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Pros: Really good rooms and service.
Cons: The gym was not good!
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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).
Pros: 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.
Cons: 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.
Pros: Historic, iconic hotel, still the best
Pros: The beach the ambiance
Cons: Everything else
Pros: 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.
Cons: Pool attendant was rather rude.
Pros: Excellent location for beach access, shopping and dining.

Pros: Facility went out of its way to accommodate us.
Cons: House cleaning. Had to call 3 times to get sheets changed
Pros: The location and retention of the old architectural features in the lobby.
Cons: The rooms were average at best for a Westin. Everything was a bit dated.
Pros: Location was amazing. Staff were very friendly!
Cons: Pool is not the nicest.
Pros: I loved it all. Room was comfortable. Great location. Beautiful hotel.
Pros: Everything was first class, from check in to check out. Very nice to have the complimentary Beach Club. It's a no hassle, take care of guest resort. Once inside and on beach, you do not know the hustle and bustle of Waikiki exists
Pros: The food was excellent
The bed was very comfortable
The room was very clean
The front desk staff were on top of it
Cons: The room was over-priced for its size and location/view
The hostess at the restaurant told us we had to wait 30 min for lunch sitting but didn't tell us we should have made a reservation so when we lined up at noon she told us we'd have to wait another 30 min
Too much furniture in my hallway. Not elegant
Cons: The pool is very small, opens late and closes early. The beach umbrellas $50 a day and also close too early. One or the other should be open at least till sunset.
Pros: Great location with great views.
iPad in the the room was a cool touch
Cons: Considering the cost of getting a room at Moana Surf, I expected the room facilities could be upgraded (ie...shower and other parts of bathroom
Pros: Pretty much Everything!
Cons: Pool and beach seating was very limited
Pros: From the moment I walked in the door, I fell in love with the old beach vibe. The understated luxury just oozed from the place. The staff was amazing and always attentive to our needs from dinner plans at check in, offering a hospitality suite after check out because we had a late flight. Truly amazing experience and 100% worth the price tag!
Pros: The staff were incredible and helped so much. Our flight was leaving late at night and they let us use a hospitality room to shower and get cleaned up before we left for the air port. The staff at the restaurants on property were fantastic, epically Omar at The Beach House. It's a quiet gem in crazy Waikiki.

Pros: Vive is close to Waikiki beach, restaurants, and shopping. Helpful staff. Clean and updated.
Cons: Room was very small.
Pros: The rooms are quite small, but still comfortable. It has vallet-only parking at the premises. But the effort of the staff to please and serve is really what called our attention.
Pros: Free beach towels, chairs, boogie boards to use
Cons: A bit pricey for a small room 3 blocks from the beach. Unsafe street at night
Pros: The staff was very helpful and friendly.
Cons: The air conditioning and wind noise in the room was a bit loud.
Pros: Attractive, comfortable, close while not on the beach, well-designed and efficient, continental breakfast, friendly and knowledgeable staff, no unhappy surprises. Everything functioned well. Room was remarkably quiet. Safe box, tablet, and free beach accessories (towel, mat, umbrellas, etc) were nice touches.
Cons: Room initially appeared small and basic, but actually was well designed and comfortable. No bathroom fan, but passive ventilation worked just as well. A/C quiet, but not really large enough to cool the room much. Mini-fridge nice and did (barely) keep food cold despite warning inside about avoiding perishables! No protein at continental breakfast, just breads and fruits, but copious and delicious. (We stocked up at Food Pantry a couple blocks away.)
Located in Waikiki, this hotel is within a 10-minute walk of Waikiki Beach and Honolulu Zoo. Waikiki Aquarium and Ala Moana Center are also within 2 mi (3 km).
Pros: Everyone on the staff is super helpful and friendly. The rooms are immaculate and the view is amazing
With the Renovation Discount it was about Half price maybe even less than half and absolutely an great value
Pros: Whenever we asked for service, (maintenance, engineer, housekeeping), they came within 5 minutes.
Pros: The hotel was under renovation but the staff was so amazing. It totally made our stay. Will surely stay in the future.
Pros: The hotel is nice. The views are pretty. The staff were courteous and helpful. It's clean. The location downtown is close to most everything.
Cons: It's not on the beach, which isn't a deal breaker, but I wasn't feeling the "Hawaiian vibe". It just wasn't there. Everything closes super early, even the hotel bar and it's all sub par, nothing too fabulous. I guess the word I could use that would fit this hotel is generic. It's not holiday inn generic, but it's definitely not worth the price, the parking fees, or the resort fee. I didn't feel like I really fit in too well either. If you're a tourist to Hawaii and you'll barely spend time at the hotel, this is the one if you're willing to pay the price. I also didn't feel like I fit in here. If you're coming from Japan though, you'll fit right in.
Pros: Close to everything in Waikiki but not in the midst of the resorts
Cons: Dirty stain/spot on floor in bathroom next to tub was there every day even after cleaning. All else was nice.
Pros: The spa is awesome.
Cons: We spent 2 nights here, it doesn't worth the money. The hotel in Wakiki is generally expensive, but if you want a 4 star experience, choose hotels like Sheraton or Westin. Need to pay extra for wifi, parking, even water after first night. The room is quite small for a 4 star standard.
Pros: Out of waikiki, room views
Pros: It is a fantastic facility. I enjoyed my stay
Cons: Nothing I didn't like
Pros: front desk staff, courteous professional
bar staff, main lobby friendly helpful

Cons: room service was pricy and was not great only complaint 200 bucks was only worth 30
Pros: Only a block from Waikiki Beach. Nice clean hotel with friendly staff.
Cons: The swimming pool did not look very clean.
Cons: Room service was inedible, room was tiny, rude staff, further from the beach and activities than expected, overpriced, THE Smallest pool. Additionally when I asked where the pool was the concierge replied "the pool is for guests only" assuming I just wandered off the street or something. Overall just rough stay. Definitely would not recommend.
Pros: Loved the staff, very friendly. Location was conducive to getting around Waikiki, and picking up buses around town. Zip car located across the street. Great views on either side of the hotel. Free continental breakfast and internet were very nice plusses.
Cons: Gym is pretty lackluster. Not the worst I've seen, but, could have been better. Though, they did say new equipment was incoming, so, may be better now. Wifi was a little spotty in the guest rooms.
Pros: Room was clean and fresh. Liked the available beach towels and the children enjoyed the pool in the evening. one block to the beach. Friendly and helpful staff.
Cons: Resturant was ok, typical of hotel restaurants, would recommend going out for better food. Good for family in need of quick food. Breakfast pancakes are huge for one child (adult menu). Found free wifi slow, not much faster when we paid for 24 hours.....
Cons: Mac 247
Pros: Location. Great business center.
Cons: No free WiFi
Pros: Friendly staff.
Pros: Only stayed one night and spent most of our time out, as you might imagine......but the time we did spend in the hotel was great.....the staff and facilities were excellent!!! Would definitely refer you to a friend.......
Pros: Hotel is two short blocks away from Waikiki Beach. Very convenient location.
Cons: Only specific complaint was the lack of sound proofing. We were on a low floor and heard all the street noise as well as noise from surrounding rooms.
Pros: I found the hotel itself and the staff and rooms very good. Large tv and a nice little balcony and large bathroom are above average for most hotels.
Cons: Hotel I found did not match up to the exterior picture and is so very different from the other local Hilton. It is away from the beach and in a busy road traffic area away from attractions. Ocean view room is from a distance over parking lots and between buildings. In room WiFi is about $10 a day and no buffet breakfast or bathrobe.
Cons: Valet parking only. Also it just wasn't anything close to what I was expecting when I booked a four star hotel.

Cons: - based on the positive reviews and high price, I thought this would be better;
- first time to Honolulu - I thought the location would be better;
- move on - there's lots of better choices
All of it
Pros: Closeness to the beach
Cons: When we arrived to our room, the city view was a view of the parking garage, actual a parked car was about 3 feet from our window. It was NOT a city view which I booked. When we called the front desk, we were advised they were completely booked and had no rooms available elsewhere. (We looked online and it did indicate there were rooms available for the night in a better location.) We were told we would be upgraded to a partial ocean view, but not until the next night. Also, there is an additional $30 charge per night for staying at that location, we were not advised of that until we were checking in. We also had to pay an additional $47 per day for valet parking which we also were not advised of until we checked in. The rooms are run down and carpets are old. In the high traffic areas the carpet had creases in spots, enough to cause us to trip. We had a negative encounter with one of your valets, we lost the valet ticket that was on the key, when we returned, they made a big deal of it, told us that we should have kept it on the key ring. Not good customer service especially after charging $47 per day!!!.
This is a Marriott Resort and we booked it because of the name and our expectations were not even remotely met...
Marriott should evaluate this location, both the desperate need of renovation and some of the customer service. If it's not going to be renovated soon, then charging appropriate hotel/motel rates and advertise appropriately.
Pros: Nice location and only steps to beach!! Lots of activities and shops.
Cons: Bathroom was not properly cleaned on arrival. :(
Pros: I liked that it was in the center of all the action and right by the beach
Pros: Location, Bar and restaurants, hotel layout.
Cons: Parking and resort fee add over $60/day.
Pros: Terrific location, terrific service
Pros: The location is acceptable and very close to the beach. Depending on where your room is located you might be impacted by the pool activity and noise.
Cons: I didn't like the fact that you get a room rate online, but when you arrive there are extra fees (Resort Fee $30.00 a day, and if you valet park a vehicle, it is $37.00 a day). The fees are not necessarily hidden, they are just not posted on the daily rate schedule. You find out when you are checking in. I have stayed in Honolulu many times and these fees are normal for most of the hotels.
Hence, it would be better to show all of the rates and fees that are associated with your stay, so that you can make an intelligent choice in your selection of a hotel,
Pros: Close to beach and multiple shops and dining.
Cons: Rooms could use microwave
Pros: The hotel is great. It is clean with a friendly staff and located very conveniently.
Cons: My only complaint and my warning for folks booking here would be that the price is definitely not what you see. I booked my rooms on Kayak and paid in full at booking. When I got to the hotel I was told that there was a $30/ day + tax charge for staying in the hotel. To self park in the hotel parking garage is $35/day or you can valet park for $37/day. The additional $65+/day adds up quickly. Just a heads up. Otherwise the hotel was lovely.
Pros: I enjoyed checking out of this hotel and telling them how I felt about our stay
Cons: I liked none of this experience

Pros: Good location, with big rooms and kitchen which was a big plus even for couples. The valet parking was very efficient as well. The trolley stops by outside which was really convenient.
Cons: The elevator was too old and slow, there was too much waiting to do.
Pros: Loves having a kitchenette ... very well stocked ..be sure to select the upgraded /newly remodeled rooms

Think of our Waikiki luxury suites as an added touch of luxury to your Ilikai experience, where you’re just steps away from white sand beaches, high-end shopping and your own version of paradise.
Pros: Loved the small lagoon, kiddie pool & water slides,
Our suite was clean & spacious with amazing view.
Cons: Check in was awful-it took over 30 minutes to check in. Huge lines were forming and not really sure why since reservations were already made.
Also annoying was the fact that you were given cards to get towels- however they failed to mention that you had to return them otherwise you would have to pay a. $10 per card!!! we usually do express check out just so we don't have to deal with front desk again.
Pros: Everything was great! The beach was beautiful, 5$3 staff, facilities, location was excellent!
Cons: The pools were overwhelming, crammed with people. Also, the hot tubs always has children playing in them and were unattended, they weren't very relaxing. An "adult only" hot tub or sauna would be an added bonus! We weren't the only couple frustrated by this.
Cons: Bathroom had a sliding door and no fan. No privacy.
Pros: In a pinch because of an ice storm, we had to find a room before our reservation at the Hale Koa started. Hilton was close, so we picked this hotel. So expensive. Perk was we could walk to our hotel the next day.
Cons: Room was lack luster for a $300 room. And that's all we had really. Super busy and hard to navigate with luggage with all the people swarming around. Waste of money. Breakfast buffet is good but so expensive, and another $35 charge at check out for what? We only stayed one night, and that was one night too long.
Pros: I liked that the location is close to the water
Cons: Much needed room renovations are required in addition to better cleanliness. Parking in the hotel which is required if you have a car is way over priced and even more than the price to rent the actual car. Another resort fee is added at the end which covers items such as yoga and do not apply to everyone is applied. Fine a different hotel that would be your best bet
Pros: Alyssa was very helpful in helping us to switch our rooms and we do appreciate her very much.
Cons: We started off on the wrong foot from the moment we arrived, having to wait over and hour to check in. Yes it was the weekend of the marathon and we understand that but, for the first 45 minutes they had only 3 people checking in the regular guest and only 3 checking in the Hilton elite. After they put another 3 on each side the line moved much quicker. On top of this we had booked a king bed but when we go to the room it was 2 queens and by this time we didn't want to go back to the front desk and wait even longer. They did end up moving us for our second night, but it's still frustrating when you have to move in the middle of your trip. On top of this the beds aren't what i would expect when i'm paying $375 a night..super hard and could almost feel the spring in one of them....needless to say we won't be wasting our money next time we visit Oahu.
Pros: Fireworks show. Location on the beach. Access to 4 lovely pools. Array of shops and restaurants.
Cons: Dated rooms. Decrepit walls/paint fixtures. Missing furniture in my room? Elevators really old.
Pros: Hotel staff, bars, main pool, being right on the beach. I had requested Diamond Head view with the package I bought, and found that I wouldn't get that on arrival BUT the guy that checked us in did find one albeit on a much lower floor but still fantastic view and that made my 50th birthday very special. Drink pricing different in different bars! The resort fee baffles me, no idea what that is actually for. Staff were great and the Pronto Pickle was a life saver after a very full day of sightseeing and touring! Great staff in there too, and we could take hot food to the room with a couple of drinks from the ABC! :o) sitting on the balcony watching the sun go down. Nothing better.
Cons: Check in seems an incredibly slow process and there's little point to the 2 lines for HH members. However, the staff do not let you leave the check in without ensuring you have every bit of information you could want. All very patient staff. Pricey hotel, resort fees, and parking fees, and beer! However, the cost of cocktails were a welcome surprise! The pools are all in the shade by 5pm, which is such a shame.
Pros: Staff were absolutely wonderful. We even had a bellman refuse a tip and a staff member on break offer to help us. Magnificent and gorgeous property in the heart of everything. This is a very large property with several buildings and can get crowded. It is rather easy to get lost also. Attentive staff and service more than makes up for that.
Cons: It is a large property with several buildings so it can sometimes feel like a factory. It is also easy to get lost. However top-notch staff make the difference. We did have a misunderstanding about what kind of breakfast we got for a prepaid fee and where it was located. We were told we should get a full breakfast. Vouchers said continental breakfast in one building - staff told us to go to a different restaurant (mistake). Again, staff made everything ok.
Pros: Wonderful relaxing atmosphere! Nice walking path along the beach, good variety of restaurants, beautiful views & grounds, staff was very nice
Cons: Main pool is dated, looks 1970s, MAIN COMPLAINT: NO Room Service. What major hotel resort has no room service? I was disappointed. food is pricey. Go to a market & get waters, fruit snacks etc. & save $
Pros: Loved it was walking distance to a lot of things. Liked the resort feel. Romantic and family beach. Nice walks on waterfront.
Cons: So crowded it's hard to get around in car.. Person kept knocking on the wall when we would have tv on past ten( I didn't feel it was up very high since no one could talk and hear tv at same time). Very expensive hotel. But again,you must pay to be on waterfront. Sand was odd on resort by water like it was poured to make a actual beach there.
Cons: The inclusion of the mandatory and deceptive "resort fee" tainted my entire experience at the Hilton Hawaiian Village. The "resort" amenities offered no additional value to me yet were not optional. What's more, the one "resort" amenity that I did use, wireless Internet, was terrible and unusable; just loading Gmail timed out continuously. I ended up using my phone as a hotspot because it had better throughput. The charge for parking was yet another bait-and-switch and was not included as it is in other hotel's resort fees.
As a matter of principle I will not recommend this hotel to others nor stay there myself if Hilton continues this deceptive practice.
Daily Resort Charge will be added to the room rate and includes: guest internet access; PlayStation 3 in room with games/movies; cultural activities; exercise classes; custom postcard; outdoor movies; 20% off afternoon sail; 10% off or 1 cat. upgrade on a 2-day car rental; local/toll-free calls.

Pros: The location was great! Right in the middle of the shopping area.
Cons: We didn't like how one of the staff was very rude to us. I felt I was bugging her with my questions. Our room key didn't work and I asked for a new one and she rolled her eyes at me.
Pros: Staff was nice, facilities were mostly clean, and you can't beat the price
Cons: The floor was dirty, the room was small, the chair was rusty.
Cons: Bed was really small
Pros: location close to everything ........
Cons: honestly I don't have anything negative to say. I would stay there again.
Pros: I loved this hotel. It is very clean, very professional, they give a lot of attention to the small details. Housekeeping does an excellent job as well as the front desk people. I did not want it to leave. I will stay there in my future trips
Cons: Everything was perfect
Pros: I enjoyed 2 nights here and then looked for a bit more savings. I actually went to 3 other hotels in the 100-150 range and looked at their rooms. Nasty. Old, outdated, musty, mildewed... the Shoreline Waikiki is not fancy, but it sure is clean and smart. So I went back and rented another room for 3 more nights. Rooms are small. Rooms were clean! First room, on 6th floor, was a tad shinier and newer than second room I rented on 5th floor. I suppose it had seen less traffic. Hotel staff was friendly, there's coffee and iced tea downstairs, there's a simple but clean and effective pool on the roof. All the design/remodel choices are one smart notch above budget. Hotel is a few feet off of Kuhio, in the midst of the Waikiki tourist district. Beach is a 5 minute walk. No complaints at all. Heartily recommended.
Cons: Hotel taxes in Waikiki are high, so a $119 room bills out at just under $135.
Pros: Location & value.
Cons: Parking in Waikiki was expensive.
Pros: The only thing I like is the location and have to say : you pay for what you get.
Cons: Serious construction going on with their lower level restaurant, best to stay out of lower floor. I stay at 5th and still can hear the noise, start as early as 8am in the morning. Better to check and make sure they construction is finish before you make your decision, or demand upper floor room. The house keeping was horrible, 3 straight days without reloading the shampoo and facial towers... no washing cups, no wiping the table.. overall house keeping quality is poor.

Pros: Enjoyed 5 days at this hotel. The location is the best you can get in Waikiki. It's central to some of the best shopping I've ever seen in the world.
Cons: Still new from a remodel. So some things need tweaking.
Cons: Mean front desk manager.
Cons: We checked in and went to our room. It was hot and the air conditioning was almost useless. The window coverings were missing slats and the hot sun poured in. The building is ancient and the bathroom was disgusting. We were with another couple, whose room was even worse. We checked out an hour later, managing through local friends to find other accommodations. Yeah it's cheap (by Honolulu standards) but not somewhere you would want to stay.
Pros: Location was great
Cons: The air condition didn't work at first. Weird smell in the room. Some lamps didn't work. Ancient TV. The discount code for the internet didn't work. We had to look for parking by ourselves. The beds were tiny!

Pros: It had free breakfast.
Cons: The hallway leading up to the room smells.
Pros: The hotel is nice. Not much for restaurant/bar/pool but the complimentary breakfast was good and the location to the beach was good. I highly recommend using valet service...spend the $ and avoid the hassle of parking off-site.
Pros: Hotel was closer to the Waikiki beach.
Staff were friendly.
House keeping was good.
Cons: Rooms are cramped.
There is mo space to move about freely in the room or to keep your bags and open them comfortably.

Pros: Good facilities, affordable, very friendly, nice people
Cons: Conversations late at night by window, poor quality curtains with outside lights leave room lightly light all night. Staff on in past was exceptional but last time had poorer English comprehension and was confused at what was said. They have a shoes off policy inside but I found it not quite clean enough floors to be comfortable on feet.
Pros: Staff were excellent. Students from university also providing staff support. Small herb garden which you can use in your cooking. Clean and well managed. Not noisy and range of ages from 18-60 staying. Good central location for exploring island, particularly if you have a car. inexpensive but good food nearby in restaurant/cafe or from local supermarkets. If you want a hostel right on the beach then this is not for you, but as a calm place to use as a base to see Oahu it is great.
