This hotel is really awesome! A neat little mall like place on the first and second floor My girlfriend and I went downstairs to Kai Coffee to start our mornings too! We got the ocean view room and it was really nice! No bed bugs too! The room service comes a bit early, but they’re really friendly and nothing was stolen My only problem was the pillows are hard like bricks

Other than that our stay was perfect!

Rahul Krish

Location – 5/5 – Just amazing, right at the center of everything Beach was just outside, lot of great restaurants and shopping around They also have a car rental right at the hotel

Room – 5/5 – Was very clean, bathrooms were great, had a balcony with a decent view of the mountainsService – Room service was fantastic, they are very friendly and helpfulValue – 5/5 – We got a great deal, so I think it’s definitely worth itAmenities – 5/5 – They have a good gym, decent pool and a hot tub They provide beach towels as well Only thing I wish the package included was the beach umbrella, but you can get one for 10 bucks a day right outsideParking – Was fairly expensive, so we didn’t end up using itI would recommend renting a car only when needed and not throughout your stay as most of the bars , beach and restaurants are within walking distanceOverall, it was a very pleasant stay! Highly recommended!

Simon Cai

Amazing place overall!!! Spending our honeymoon here, and the oceanfront room we got had a simply magnificent view The hotel is literally seconds away from the beach, so if you enjoy hearing soothing sounds of the waves then this is for you, though may not be everyone One small item is that the shower could be updated a bit, but the room itself from the bed to the bidet(!) to just the general setup with the lounger facing the ocean is just fantastic

Would definitely recommend!

Went here for our honeymoon- beautiful hotel but a lot of improvements could be madeThese were our negativesWe spent $4k to stay here for our honeymoon yet if you want a sunbed round the pool you have to get up early due to people leaving towels on them and disappearing until later in the dayIf you want a sunbed on the beach these are an extra $80 A DAY!!The ones which have four posts and a curtain attached are $200!!So for us even spending $4000 to stay at the hotel it seemed we were lower class and laid on the beach with sand blowing on us

One night we went to sit in the main bar area where the piano / music is played- with our coffees that we just bought at the hotel outside bar and was told the seats were only for people spending a two drink minimum- our coffees didn’t count – again we were made to feel like the poor lower class guestsThe last other thing was breakfast We had complimentary continental breakfast and the servers were very quick to point out it only included one drink and not lattes – again $4K spent to stay there and I can’t have a bit of steamed milk in my coffee I just think that’s very mean and poor formMaybe the managers making these rules should concentrate on the cleanliness as the restaurant could do with a dustThings were way overpriced in the hotel which I would expect but $12 for a (non alcoholic) frozen kona coffee from the pool bar TWELVE DOLLARS!!All in all nice hotel way overpriced

What a beautiful hotel! Staff was very friendly, accommodating Rooms way more than we expected and the ocean view fantastic! What a beautiful old hotel that’s been updated but still has it’s understated original charm and luxurious feel I can only imagine what the “First Lady” looked like in it’s early hey day

Hope to return and spend more time

Robert Sheldon

Great location, excellent service, and awesome beach Bathroom was a little dated, but the bed is comfortable, water is hot, and water pressure was good Our ocean view room had a beautiful view of Waikiki beach from the balcony

Good on site dining options, especially the breakfast You’re better off going across the street into the International Marketplace for multiple restaurant options for dinner

E’Lisha Evans

Overall, the stay at this hotel wasn’t bad The standard room was smaller than expected If you don’t get a room that faces the pool/beach your balcony will be very small

The staff did their best to resolve issues as fast as possible and were very friendly Amazing view of the beach, which is across the street In walking distance to restaurants, and shopping I liked that they held your bags for you if you had a late flight after check out I wish the check out time was a little bit lately due to Hawaii being on a different time zone I didn’t like that if you didn’t have a suite that you had to rent a microwave from them (daily fee) The hotel does not provide breakfast Also, if you rent a vehicle you will have to pay for daily valet parking Shuttles are not provided for this location so you have to make your own arrangements to get to and from the airport or other outings/tours I would suggest that the hotel upgrade their elevator control for only the hotel guest to have access to the rooms

Erin Miller

Just what we were expecting Great location right across the street from the beach Beautiful views of Diamond Head and the ocean

Highly recommend the ocean front view It’s on the less busy area of Waikiki but was still pretty busy You could hear street noise from the lanai, but I think that no matter where you stay, that will happen It was quieter then further north which seemed to be more of a Las Vegas atmosphere If you prefer less commotion, Park Shore is perfect The hotel itself was very nice and clean We were offered cleaning services everyday The ABC store in the hotel was very convenient and had everything you could possibly need The front desk staff and bell service were very friendly and on point I would definitely stay here again

Christina R

I stayed at the Park Shore Waikiki for 3 nights in late March 2022 Staff were very friendly and helpful Location was great, directly across the road from Waikiki beach and the view from my room overlooking Diamond Head was amazing, however, I would not recommend staying at this hotel

The air-conditioning in my room was incredibly noisy The walls were very thin – I could hear everything going on in the rooms surrounding mine Styrofoam cups were provided for coffee but no glasses or cutlery were provided (this would have been an added convenience) The room wasn’t very clean either There were cobwebs in the corners of the ceiling and hair in the shower The worst thing though was that the water in my shower would not heat up so I ended up having 3 cold showers for my three nights at this hotel! I reported it to the front desk and maintenance was sent to my room I was told by maintenance that I would have to let the water run for about 3-5 minutes before it warmed up The next morning I let the water run for 15 minutes and it never warmed up This was very disappointing I really wanted to like this hotel It was very convenient for a quick stopover in Hawaii and the views were amazing, however it was let down by poor maintenance and poor cleanliness

JC Holcomb

The rooms are so so They don’t do room cleaning unless you pay for it, however you can exchange towels and such at the front desk The staff is great and very helpful

The location is at the far end of Waikiki, really good for families (proximity to zoo/beach/aquarium) If you’re looking for night life, most of it will be a half mile walk, doable but there are better places to stay for that The assigned parking is nice if want to pay for it

German R (Elegate)

To Roxy thank you very much for your hospitality and for going above and beyond to make my stay enjoyable one The location is great I liked it The prices are pretty competitive and parking is not too bad

Word of advice if you have a rental please call the hotel in advance so they can reserve a spot for you On the second floor they have a bar, Hula’s Bar & Lei Stand, which does gives a nice view of the Diamond Head The next time I go to Honolulu the Waikiki Grand Hotel is most definitely the first spot I’ll check out

Ying Li

My conclusion on this place: 1) You got what you paid for 2) I would not recommend this place 3) Location was the only good thing

Reasoning: 1) the whole shower set broke, cant shower at all Front desk personnel was not willing to change room (allow me to go to another room to shower) until the Wi-Fi was not working in that room 2) front desk personnel seems busy all the time, no patient with attitude Made a big deal of getting a blanket and bringing back a blanket

I didn’t think the rooms felt too dated The bed was really comfortable to sleep in and they were able to provide a pack and play for my toddler The staff was so helpful and it was easy to find someone to assist with our luggage or any questions about the hotel

As for the location, it’s perfectly situated between a few major streets with major bus routes There’s also a laundry mat just around the block that’s easy to use Overall I think this is a great place to stay if you want someplace comfortable to sleep that is nicely located to tourist activities and bus lines The only thing I wish the hotel had was a bigger fridge

Grace Grilliot

I have stayed at this particular hotel many times, but finally writing a review The hotel is in a great location, you can walk anywhere downtown from there The staff is super friendly and accommodating

We got upgraded to an ocean view room which was very nice For those not familiar with Double Tree, the cookies were delicious as usual! We received the daily food and beverage credit for being Diamond members, but the restaurants were not open when we wanted to use them, so we didn’t That was our fault, but, the hotel should make the restaurant available more often so people can hang out and have a cocktail before dinner time We had a great stay and were very happy with our room and amenities!

Quacyya Cuaresma

This hotel has a great balcony and pool area that I utilized when I didn’t want to walk to the beach The couches are great for daytime reading or watching shows, or you can hangout there at night with nice lights around you The beach is a 20 minute walk and the area felt safe

Though the water wasn’t in sight, the views are beautiful with either mountains or a nice park area This hotel isn’t a 5 star hotel (which I couldn’t afford anyways) but is fairly priced and has everything you need! Every single employee I encountered was friendly – the most friendly than any hotel I’ve ever been They greeted me and chatted every time The folks standing outside are especially awesome, especially Pedro They try to remember their guests and serve them I was very impressed and will return if I come to Oahu again!

We stayed on the 7th floor with an ocean view room – decent view of the ocean, but you’re also looking straight down at neighboring hotel’s pool and roof top bar Hotel is situated right off of the main road, but was very noisy at night We had to sleep with ear plugs in and a sound machine going

I didn’t catch his name, but the young guy who checked us in and took care of us the majority of our stay was so nice and accommodating He even brought a hair dryer up to our room after we discovered our room was missing one He was awesome – thank you! The hotel parking is tight and limited and at an additional cost of $35/night Room was clean and bed was comfortable Quick access to main road and beach by foot Likely wouldn’t return here because we prefer somewhere more quiet and secluded than being down in the hub of it all

Alanieta Waqanicagica

If you’re looking for a place to stay in Waikiki – this is the best place! Not too pricey, hotels are clean, beach is a mere 2 min walk away The bus stop is also 2 min walk away, an ABC convenience stop is by it, if you’re heading out for Luau, tour etc the pickup spot is close tooThey don’t offer breakfast but many breakfast spots are close, rooms are serviced daily and the hotel staff are very friendly

If you can get a room with a balcony – it’s got some of the best views!

james olver

You couldn’t ask for a better location, great view, extremely convenient to the beach and tons of great food Staff was very friendly at all times and they offer a lot of extras for beach fun It was a little wonky finding with a car at first, but once we got the hang of it, easy peasy

Scout ahead on street view and you’ll avoid a lap around the block

Terrible experience The hotel is very old and needs a renovation We couldn’t use the AC because it stinks

We took the filters out and they wasn’t cleaned for at least a few years, and it helped a little bit No windows so we basically had no air The last night at 4am our room filled with smoke and strong smell of something being burned, we were it’s fire but no fire alarm was on The smell and smoke was strong so we couldn’t be in the room since 4am We had to check out and move outThe room was also very dirty and full of previous guests hairThe area around is full of homeless people but it’s a downtown so it’s kinda as it should be in AmericaVery bad experience with this placeThe stuff was very helpful and nice tho That’s the only good thing about this hotel – the stuff

pafadul

Stayed here last week with my wife and chose this hotel because it was closer to the capitol and the palace In theory it sounded good but was a big mistake The area around the hotel (and I understand that this is out of their control) was not tourist friendly

Lots of homeless wandering around, people sleeping on sidewalks, abandoned looking buildings (the longs drugs at the bottom of the hotel was shuttered), and generally did not look safe The hotel itself does not have a restaurant or room service, so you will be forced to look around the hotel, which is fine unless you want to eat after 3pm (most of the restaurants close after this time) Now for the hotel itself The staff was friendly and tried to be helpful, but they could only do so much There is no fitness center at this hotel (a first for us since even the holiday inn has a basic setup) but they can sell you a one use pass for the 24 hour fitness nearby for $12 The view in the room was great, but the room itself was dated No comforter on the bed, and room service only comes by after 4 days of your stay You can request housekeeping or more towels, but we never actually tried this The tub had jets but as others had mentioned, the nozzles were black and quite dirty In our room the caulking at the base of the tub was not present, leaving a nice gap between the tile and the tub that looked unsettling when walking around with bare feet The carpet was well worn and the wallpaper was peeling in several places The a/c diffuser was placed on top of the door to the bedroom and ended up blowing directly on us as we tried to sleep, which was annoying It was nice that the rooms have a kitchenette with utensils, mugs, etc That actually came in handy a couple of times We did like the fact that there was a small table in the bedroom as well as the kitchen area and a loveseat as well Lots of room, but everything was just so old and worn down Overall, i think the hotel could be great if they just renovated the rooms I feel like this would have been an awesome hotel like 30 years ago

Stephanie Chase

Spacious room with a full small kitchen, a bathroom with a large tub and a washer/dryer, and a large bedroom with a view The neighborhood around the hotel has many AMAZING restaurants, and it is very easy to access Ala Moana and Waikiki beaches (in fact, much of Honolulu) via the multiple bus lines that come right by the hotel Keep in mind you are in downtown Honolulu, and not the tourist-filled streets of Waikiki

MY FAVORITE HOTEL STAY EVERThe staff were incredible and so welcoming! Special shout-out to Princess, who was able to help me get my wedding dress steamed in time for my wedding (She was also super sweet!) Also, the valet staff were so welcoming as well! They would always greet my husband and I so excitedly – they even remembered our names! Lastly, the room was perfect! We had an ocean view room and we were in awe of the view

We spent so much time finding the perfect hotel to stay for our wedding, and I’m glad we stayed here Thank you!!

Kim C

We recently stayed for 6 nights in an extremely clean ocean view room on the 14th floor Everything was wonderful! ALL of the employees that we interacted with were very warm and welcoming We spent Easter morning at the beautiful pool with a friendly pool attendant

We had a rental car for 2 days and the bellhops remembered us whenever we parked or even walked by Check-in, check-out and requesting housekeeping was so simple The location is so convenient to plenty of shops and restaurants as well as a beautiful view of the ocean We highly recommend this hotel!

Julie H

Truly outstanding property in Waikiki beach Rooms are somewhat small, but hey you’re in Hawaii so you really only use the room to sleep and shower Very much a boutique type feel hotel

Beautiful decor throughout the propertyFabulous bathroom with deep soaking tub and gentle cleaning bidet’s on the toilets Our 12th floor ocean view room did not disappoint!Exceptional service from every single staff member we encountered Carl at the pool was especially helpful and friendly The breakfast package that came with our stay was fabulous It’s served at their even more upscale sister property across the streetI loved the Halepuna and you will too!

We are enjoying our room with partial ocean view They do not clean your room unless requested 24-hour prior notice and you pick the time they can clean When you need more towels, shampoo, conditioner, or coffee you just go ask the front desk and they give you more

Beach towels are included upon request, just make sure you let them know when you are returning them because they are checked out with your room number, There is a basket you drop them in when entering the lobby They a very big nice towels Very happy with are comfortable soft bed The stove top is a plug in the wall kind it’s not like the picture on the counter top Overall we are happy and thankful we choose this hotel

Shawn Corkum

Overall we had a good experience here I think the company had this listed as a 4 star, which it certainly is not 3

5 at best That being said, the room was clean and very spacious We had a one bedroom with a kitchenette AC was in the living room, and it was a bit challenging to keep the bedroom as cool as we would have liked but there was a ceiling fan Not a huge deal It was very nice to have a kitchenette The hotel needs some Renos, the hallways are very worn But, we paid far less for our stay here than other hotels, so overall were satisfied The service was excellent, especially the lady at the front desk (sadly I cannot remember her name) Nice to be able to use the towels as well If you can get past the wear and tear, it’s a good hotel in a great location (really short walk to the beach)

Roger Hollingshead

The hotel location is everything! 2 blocks to the beach and the best poke place in waikiki right across the street! You don’t need a car here unless you are going to explore the whole island We had a car and the parking was a good price for the areaThe pool has an amazing view and was empty most the time

The rooms are decorated a bit old style but clean

I would like to personally thank Chris and Ben of the Front Desk for wiping my tears away and making this a vacation of a lifetime The hotel is old but the rooms have been updated and look really nice The hotel staff will do everything they can to make your stay pleasurable

The location is awesome! I would highly recommend this hotel and will return next year If you can please try to book a oceanfront suite on a high floor The views are amazing, there is truly something magical at the Royal Hawaiiansuite on a high floor The oceanfront views are amazing The breakfast dishes were delicious

I had a perfect stayI appreciated the staff so much They were top notch and made our stay amazing

They were knowledgeable and so helpful The hotel is super clean and gorgeous and the location is fantastic We were close to everything and as a resort guest you could reserve great beach umbrella/seats to relax Everything is in walking distance and the live music at night was beautiful

Jessica Airel

I’ll start by saying the staff deserves 5 stars They are helpful and friendly and really made the trip enjoyable My husband and I stayed here on our honeymoon and the staff was quick to upgrade our room to a higher floor, and gave us a voucher for 2 free drinks and pastries at the bakery, both were very tasty

This was our first time staying at a 5 star hotel, and I honestly didn’t see a difference between a lower star hotel and this one I was surprised to find that with the price we paid to stay here, nothing was included in our stay Not even breakfast When we went to get breakfast our first day, I nearly fell out of my chair when I saw they wanted like $3200 for a basic omelet, and the food menu in general is teeny tiny If you wanted beach chairs, you had to rent them at $6000 a day, which is insaneThe walls to the rooms are paper thin I was woken up every single day at 6 am by guests yelling to each other, and was woken up several times after midnight because someone thought it was appropriate to blast a harry potter movie So quiet times are definitely not enforced here  And even if someone was having a conversation at a normal volume, we heard that loud and clear as wellIf you want to view this beautiful historic hotel, I would suggest staying elsewhere and walk around it for a bit We did have a nice stay in Hawaii, but I wouldn’t stay here again, I would go back to staying in a 3 star hotel because I honestly saw no difference between here or a 3 star hotel

Check in was easy The hotel is CLEAN No foul smells, it actually has a fresh smell to it

Beds are comfortable Housekeeping daily was greatly appreciated The only thing is parking You may or may not get a spot Other than that I’m enjoying my stay Side note even though parking isn’t the best, the location of the hotel is walking distance to food the beach and entertainment I’d definitely stay here again

The single room I had was very small Not enough room for me to open up my luggage comfortably Pulling my luggage over the bed to get to the other side

My room was very clean I only needed to stay overnight, so I managed My colleague’s fortunately had larger rooms I definitely would stay at the Ala Moana hotel againI recommend the Steak restaurant on the 32 floor Fine dinning , great service, fabulous food

We had a lovely conference Facilities were good, but I was freezing Check out the hand made origami peacock centerpiece

The vegetarian lunch was superb My room was good, but not much of a view I didn’t expect to have someone come in to make my bed or empty the trash (not usual protocol since COVID) so unfortunately some pens and business cards got thrown out It was nice to come back after a long day to have a nicely made bed

I needed to book a room at the last minute at 1:00am for seven nights The front desk was friendly, helpful and accommodating The hotel is clean, well run, and caters more to the business traveler and was a nice change of pace from the more tourist-overridden beachfront hotels

I needed to extend my stay two extra nights and they were also very accommodatingHousekeeping was thorough, and despite being scheduled to service the room only every four days, it was simple to request more frequent service as neededRecommended

Staying at the Hilton was a great choice! The location was awesome and close to everything! It was a short walk to the beach and the beach views were unbeatable If you’re looking for food and shops or entertainment, everything was right down the street We literally walked everywhere from coffee shops to abc stores to the international marketplace and the beach the entire time, no car needed! The service was amazing, everyone we encountered was friendly, helpful and went above and beyond

Definitely worth a stay and I’d return for another stay

Junhua Chen

The service here is very good From valet parking to house keeping and front deskJessica who helped check me in was very helpful, I had multiple reservations and she helped combine them together, avoided check out and check in again

The restaurant is a good place for a quick biteAnd the beach towel machine is a great perkThe only thing I am not happy with is the AC in the room It’s cooling down the room, but somehow it didn’t make the room dry, so the room was moist and cool

Good customer service Would have been nice to have some sort of special treatment for my wedding (card, champagne, or free breakfast voucher

) but still had a good time We were there for over a week with multiple rooms in our group We unfortunately didn’t qualify for a discount, but I get it Water pressure was the only real issue Nice hotel and staff was professional and courteous Very convenient to have a restaurant and gift/convenient store on property Surprised they didn’t offer room service Excellent location

Remember to use ʜᴏᴛᴇʟʙoʟʟʏᴄᴏm when booking your hotel This website will compare countless booking websites and normally will have rates much cheaper than others! Thank me later on! This place is one of the best in the area

I have been coming here for years If you choose this place you won’t regret itRoom was always clean Valet was always friendly and willing to help out Rooms were decent size Not much outside noise gets in when the door is closed View is spectacular no matter what side you are on Housekeeping did a fantastic job

Jennifer Wirth

Close enough to everything Waikiki, good location The international marketplace is right across the street for good food and shopping The beach is a 10 minute walk away

All staff we’ve encountered have been very friendly and actually seem like they’re having a good time We kept passing this one bellman (I think?) near the elevators who was always smiling or loudly singing along with the music playing from the speakers We had little interaction with him, but he had such a fun, positive energy The rooms and entire hotel are nice and cleanThe price is good for Waikiki, but be aware that the pool is tiny and filled with shouting kids, the fitness center smells AWFUL (like, truly bad We opened the door, got our faces assaulted with the punch of maybe 30 years worth of stale sweat, and immediately closed the door without entering God awful), the view from the balcony is into other rooms and balconies and alley, and there’s no hot tub I don’t really care about pool or balcony views since there’s so much off property to do, but a 9 pm hot tub soak would have been so niceAll in all, if you only have a few nights and don’t care about being right on the beach, this is a great choice for accommodation

coffee maker did not have pods for first breakfast Machine broke for last two breakfasts We had booked both units months ago for our family, one was double booked so we were very disappointed to stay apart the first two nights

We were given what I would consider a small discount for the inconvenience Everyone gets a papaya, that was delicious The rooms are clean and adequate There is plenty of beach equipment which we used

Wasy Wasdyke

We had another great stay at The PP Bob and Jeanette are wonderful and made our trip a fulfilling experience We actually spent more time with them this year because we didn’t do a lot of tourist things

We used the pool and enjoyed the mountain views The room was very clean and airy and Kailua Beach is minutes away It really was a restful vacationSee you next year!

Rachell Amaoui

My husband was working on MCBH for a month so i flew out for a week We spent the week here at this beautiful B&B Bob and Jeanette are very pleasant hosts and made us feel right at Home

The room was very clean and the water pressure was excellent for those after beach showers! We enjoyed the pool and also the Lanai The back yard is peaceful and great for enjoying the sun and reading a pool before taking a dip in the pool Next time we come to Hawaii we will definitely be back to Papaya Paradise 😊

The check-in time wasn’t the best The views is winning I love passing out to the sound of the waves

For the price I only stayed 1 night The room quality – price ratio isn’t on point I had reservations for a bigger room elsewhere The experience was great I actually wanted to stay another night because of the nice breeze and the view Be nice if they can turn 2 corner suites into a 1 bedroom with a big tub A whole 280° view plus some

Daniel

So far this is an absolutely amazing hotel Directly next to the lagoon and everything looks absolutely gorgeous There are throngs and throngs of people here which made check in pretty slow and clunky

It’s also a $50 resort fee per night plus parking fees and the parking garage is cumbersome and difficult to get to but not too bad They have a shopping village and food around every corner They have kayak and paddle boat and paddleboard rentals by the lagoon which is pretty cool

D Gnz

The only complaint I have: was checking in long n slow lines I liked the hotel n service

Our room was kept clean The hotel restaurants were highly expensive but there’s a food truck across the lagoon, the best shrimp n fish The hotel location is perfect: beachfront, lagoon , n many shops ABC stores to get food too Parking space is expensive $59 per day We didn’t use their parking garage, we found a cheaper one 1 block away I will reserve it again because of location

I fly to Hawaii every year for my birthday, and this was one of my favorite stays! The best part of this hotel is the pool area The bartenders and servers are so much fun and so polite! They made my birthday trip here amazing, I truly do miss them! The hotel itself is located in a prime location and the rooms are nice The food here is great too! If you want a beach/pool day and don’t really feel like going anywhere you can honestly assure that you’ll have great food, drinks and service right at your hotel, plus there’s a small beach a short walk right behind the pool

I Would definitely recommend staying here if you’re going to be in Honolulu and I hope to return this year for my birthday when I come back

Mark Oliva

Everything is good The room size is above average The pools are clean and all amenities are good

The staff are courteous and requests for linen and other essentials were taken care of immediately Parking is not a problem Request a room that has a view of the lagoon so you can watch the fireworks on your room I only gave 3 stars because of the policy that they do not clean the rooms when requested I understand not cleaning daily but if requested, they should clean the room

Chelsea Jones

This was my first stay at the Modern and it was extremely disappointing and nothing special Without prior knowledge, on arrival we were told that there is no room cleaning and we have to ask for fresh towels and other room amenities when we need them, including putting our garbage outside the room Firstly, we are not in quarantine so I don’t know why this is the case and secondly it is not hygienic or pleasant to have used towels and garbage lying around every floor of the hotel corridors

The staff at the hotel are extremely slow at actioning requests When asking for towels, I waited up to an hour for them to be delivered on one occasion They also don’t answer the phone promptly and even before my trip I was trying to contact the hotel about my reservation and I had trouble contacting them via email and phoneThe pool is nice, nothing special The sun beds are filthy however- they could use an upgradePool bar closes at 9:30 which I thought was quite early for a hotel?The overall cleanliness of the hotel was disappointing- on arrival the room was far from spotless There were hairs on the bathroom floor and dust and dirt on the floor which I had to clean myself3 electrical sockets in my room were not working and the WIFI cut in and outWouldn’t bother staying again- apparently it has recently been acquired by Hilton so I hope they can whip the hotel into shape!

Not too bad overall, but a little overrated The price is what you’d expect from a military-affiliate hotel, so the higher rank you are the less value you’re getting The location isn’t bad, but a little outside the main area (this may be considered an advantage)

Parking is $16 is you’re staying there, which is great for the area The big hit on this hotel for me, along with the rough towels in the bathroom, was the pool There’s an adult only pool, a main pool with an infinity pool above it, and a splash area for children The splash area is fun, but the main pool had so many rules it was hard to enjoy anything:- the entire pool is cleared at the top of the hour for “safety and training,” whatever that entails (it wasn’t obvious)- a child must know how to swim to swim in the pool without a life jacket (which they will provide) I understand that’s extremely safe, but then what’s the point of the three lifeguards and the other rule to be within arm’s reach of your young child all the time? Clearly this pool is not a good opportunity to have a child practice swimmingOverall, I’m glad I stayed a night, and I haven’t discounted the Hale Koa entirely, but I will definitely do a thorough cost comparison with hotels in the area before staying again

Jessica Morel

Friendly staff, very clean hotel and Omgosh the beds are comfortable as ever! There is a Starbucks in the main lobby which is convenient when you want to wake up early and just lounge in the lobby area Downstairs there is the Exchange for military and hotel guest Pathway downstairs leads you to the pools and beaches

Food was good I had a cheeseburger and fries for lunch which was delicious Ocean view rooms you will not regret if you purchase it was amazing! Free parking and walking distance from the strip I definitely would book here again!

Tammy Folks

Hale Koa is a haven in the craziness of Waikiki The grounds are stunning The adult pool was so relaxing and quiet, with shaded areas which is a must for me

Liked the Barefoot Bar as there was a lot of room to spread out, and had good drinks for a reasonable price Our room was very nice, we were on the end so had an extra large window which made it feel more spacious Our friends stayed at the Hilton Hawaiian village which was beautiful, but it was way too crowded for us We enjoyed the serene quiet of Hale Koa! The only thing I would change is for restaurants to have more gluten free options as I have celiac disease The breakfast buffet was fine, but the snack bars really had very little or nothing I could eat This hotel is a definite perk for those who serve/retire from the military We felt blessed to have the opportunity to stay there!

Sam Wingerter

Had high expectations for this resort given its prime real estate Checking in late, we expected an easy & smooth check-in, but ended up waiting way too long – could have been greeted with waters or a complimentary drink to ease the wait The guest experience is lacking given the $ paid – just didn’t feel the warm friendly vibe you would expect

The rooms are dated, but spacious – AC works well Nearby food outlets on the resort are average quality – nothing special (nice part is there is an ABC store on the resort) You have to book your housekeeping (ended up cleaning the room) plus can only hold pool towels for 24 hours or return them the next day Also, make sure you check which building you are staying in as they play live music until 11pm on some nights and found it hard to sleep Pools are good, but busy All and all, would try booking somewhere else next time unless this resort starts to prioritize guest experience management

Anthony Chan

Beautiful location with direct beach access This conglomerate of Hilton hotels bunched together creating a little shopping haven What is unique with this Hilton location is the fire work every Friday night at 8pm

An experience you do not want to miss The fire work is beautiful and proximal that it feels 3DBali at the waterfront for breakfast: the waitress I have was attentive, personable and made great suggestions Although it looks real pricey, the portion size is decent and can be sharedwhat make up for the price is the view of the ocean and the food being served immediately piping hotThe only cons are the front desk could have smile more and be friendlier Being a diamond member and could not get any member benefits when subscribed to the Hilton Grand vacation package was a total disappointment Not only you can’t check in early, we had to wait 3 hours to be notified that our room was ready Then wait another hour at the mail and key line to find out that our room was not ready That was a little perturbing

jim nava

The General Manager (Jeff) + all staff of the hotel were amazing, helpful and accommodating This helped my family and I to actually relax and enjoy every moment we were there I am so grateful for the hospitality and professionalism from initially booking to departure

Very clean resort with very high standardsExcellent location Accessible stores and food options within the village + a 15 minute walk to the main strip regardless, for shopping and restaurants Parking although expensive, is in a secured garage steps away from each of the buildings in the resortBeach front, lagoon and landscaping were well maintained and beautifulMandara Spa on site was helpful to rectify an issue and the massage was excellent
