We stayed in the old wing. It was very nice. Room was a good size although the bathroom a little on the small side. Very clean and tidy. The traditional styling of the old wing and the lush park like grounds are very nice. The grounds and the secluded proximity to the beach makes the RH a bit of an...

This is by far the best hotel we have ever stayed at. We stayed here, in the tower, 10 years ago when we got married. A perfect place for a wedding and perfect again for our 10th wedding anniversary. The hotel itself is beautiful. It has all you would expect from a modern hotel (an iPad in the room in...

We stayed two nights prior to embarking on a cruise. We loved the historic charm of the place, but many of the furnishings and fixtures were dated and worn. The room has a tablet for guest services, but there were few other electrical outlets for charging our devices. Bedding was clean but shabby. Staff is fisrt rate! Loved the coffee...

I've been visiting Waikiki for years and have been enamored with the beauty & charm of the Royal Hawaiian property, so when I needed a hotel to add a couple extra nights to my family's vacation, this was our choice. The property itself was just as lovely as ever, but the experience was overall disappointing. The valets, bellhops, and housekeeping...

Beautiful architecture, grounds and common spaces at this property. Service is top notch. Rooms are very small and lack basic functionality that is often found in older properties. Very small bathrooms with no additional mirror in room area for second person to put on make up, dry hair, etc. Very comfortable beds.

This was our first holiday in Hawaii. A friend recommended The Royal Hawaiian and told us that it may be 'a little old school' but that it had atmosphere. My wife and I feel in love with the place. The décor inside, the gardens, all of it looks and smells Hawaii. To top it all of the staff were fantastic...

Wanted a Royal Hawaiian 5 star stay in the older part of the Hotel. Booked a room on the web, but couldn’t get an ocean view. So when, upon check-in, we were offered an “Upgrade” to a junior suite in the newer wing with an ocean view, like the fools we were, we accepted. These rooms are not junior suites....

The Royal Hawaiian went out of their way to be courteous and helpful with our first stay in Hawaii. I would highly recommend staying in their historic rooms. Although the hallways we're warm the room was quite refreshing. The Breakfast vouchers for a breakfast buffet we're great. We got to even order one regular entree made our morning s very...

From the doormen to the wait staff, this place exemplifies the Aloha spirit. The newer bldg has fabulous views of the ocean and Diamond head, while the older bldg overlooks a beautiful courtyard. You can walk from your room to the ocean in mere steps. And the Mai Tai bar is a fabulous place to sit and sip your favorite...
