We were staying at another hotel nearby, and visited the Royal Hawaiian hotel for its weekly Luau, and we just thought he hotel was so gorgeous. There is lots of history surrounding it, some of which was on display. The staff were so lovely and it generally seemed like a great place to stay. Next time we're in Waikiki we...

I'm staying here now and I hate to be negative, because every member of the staff has been above and beyond nice. So warm and helpful. I chose to upgrade to a tower room when I arrived because it was very early and my regular garden room was not ready. The view is genuinely nice, but the room felt really...

The Royal Hawaiian is old world glamour on a modern beach. The rooms are small but elegant. Waikiki beach is vibrant but crowded. You will want to book your beach chair before you arrive as they sell out. The surfing lessons were great fun. The spa was very elegant and the treatments were luxurious. The gym was small and had...

I have been to Hawaii a few times now and had always wanted to stay at the Pink Palace, so my last trip I did. Walking into this hotel was like walking back in time, it's interiors and exterior gardens are well kept. We arrived a bit before check in time and there was a lounge we were able to...

I could not recommend this hotel to highly. We stayed 10 days and were pampered every minute. They made a fuss (cake and a souvenir) over my BD and helped in every way possible to make this a memorable stay. Close to most sites and convenient location. Historic hotel, free small breakfast, Mai Tai's in the evening, many "craft" activities...

Recently went to Hawaii for my 60th and stayed at the Royal Hawaiian for 3 nights as it's been on my bucket list for some time (this was my 4th trip to Oahu). I was a little bit disappointed. I do think it is a bit over rated as I have stayed at other hotels which if I return to...

Stately and elegant, love the Moorish architecture. The grounds are very nice as well. Love the large tree in the grassy area with huge lanterns hung on it. We were warmly greeted upon arrival with beautiful orchid leis for the ladies and kukui nut leis for the men. Sidney at check in was very friendly and helpful. We had 2...

I had 2 rooms for my family and myself during the Christmas/New Year Holidays for 19 days. Poolside restrooms were always messy. Food service and bar always good service and good food. Pool required that you got up at 6:30AM every day in order to get chairs. Beach service required the same in order to rent chairs for the day...

Over charged on New Years Eve, had to go back 3 times to get adjusted. Deserts were removed too early at NYE party. Sink area did not have enough counter space. Location of hotel is excellent. Good quality food.

Great old hotel - updated and well worn. The public places are clean and wonderful - the rooms (we had 3) were ok - in the historic part of the hotel. The bathrooms were cleanish - there was a lot of mold on the ceilings that I hope they address once the season slows down. The staff was very helpful...

“We had two rooms during our stay. The first was a larger suite-like room facing the ocean and was perfect in every way. The second room was back toward the courtyard and had a smaller odd shaped bathroom with noisy plumbing. I would ask about which room we would be getting next time. ”
