My wife and I stayed 1 night on 3 recent occasions and let me commence but saying that The Royal Hawaiian is a very fine hotel. However on our first stay we were "upgraded" to a room in the tower that was small inconvenient and made for handicapped people. Our next two times we had a room in the old...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 January 2017 via mobile

I stayed here for the week over Christmas. It was my first visit to Hawaii and I'm delighted to have spent my time in this hotel. It is absolutely beautiful with a wealth of history. It's old world charm combined with modern amenities. It has a special energy that is only found every so often. I couldn't fault the place...

Right in the heart of Waikiki action with great ocean front, shopping and views yrtstep inside andit seems a world away. Very beautifully restored and maintained with excellent service, you step back in time to a simpler way of life. Like everything that is Hawaii the shops are pricey so be prepared to pay a premium for things or bring...

We stayed here with another couple for two nights so we could visit Pearl Harbor. The hotel is fine, but we were surprised by a wonderful fireworks display right out front of our room. I would recommend this hotel, but I'm not a fan of Honolulu.

Overpriced facade for a motel like property with unfriendly staff And old cramped accommodations. Restaurant is overpriced for an ordinary fare. No service or amenities on the beachfront. We are Gold Elite members and were celebrating our wedding anniversary. Certainly not a Luxury Collection

A beautiful hotel; old Hawaii style. Well maintained, and great service. Not a lot of food options. Food good, but not the best. Best beach on Waikiki, but very crowded. This is not the place if you are looking for a quiet beach vacation.

Classic hotel on famous Waikiki Beach. Very classy service and amenities. Although kids are certainly welcomed, there's not much for them to do. We had to use the shared pool at the Sheraton, which was nice and offered a water slide for the kids. We ended up visiting the local beaches and nearby sites. Great vacation!

Great week away from the cold and rain. Staff was amazingly accommodating and worked to be sure that any of our needs were met. Combined with the historical beauty of the Royal Hawaiian, it was just what we needed for our winter thaw.

We stayed in the Mailani Tower and enjoyed the brilliant views and high standard room amenities. All the staff we engaged with were both friendly and attentive across all of the hotel bars and restaurants.
