Stunning hotel in a great location! Short walk to the beach and tons of shopping and restaurants. The service was fantastic. The staff was very knowledgeable and helped us plan excursions. Room was smaller but beautiful, clean, and had a nice view. The rooftop pool and hot tub are beautiful with a view of the ocean. Bar included and plenty of lounge areas. The whole floor that the pool is located on has plenty of places to change, relax, charge your devices, etc. on checkout day when you no longer have your room and waiting for your flight. I hope to be back!

My favourite hotel in Waikiki. I only stayed one night but will definitely stay again. Not having to pay any amenity fees was glorious, especially when the hotel actually has worthwhile amenities. I loved being able to chill at the pool, swim, have some drinks and snacks while I waited for my room. The gym is small, but decent and has the needed equipment for a quick workout. The hotel is super clean and the room was comfortable, spacious, and bright. Staff were professional and very friendly and helpful. Also great that i could go to Halekulani restaurants and bars and just charge back to my room. Access to the hospitality suite was great as I needed to work after check-out with a late evening flight. Definitely recommend.
