When I arrived I was instantly greeted with smiles by Sarah and Rachel. Check in was a breeze, even received a free upgrade from urban to ocean view. We had a short trip with many activities planned, so we kept the valet Kris and Federico busy. They were very quick and friendly. Jackie always made sure we had everything we... More

I stayed at Hotel Renew for 5 nights and had a great experience! Rachel and Sarah always greeted us with big smiles and accommodated our needs as much as possible. Necessities for the beach (towels, mats, chairs, umbrella) are provided at the front desk and the beach is located less then 1 block away. Kris is very friendly and always... More

Stayed here during Halloween and the Cubs World Series! Great Hotel! The customer service was the best, the room was great, the staff was amazing and of course you can't beat the area. I would definitely suggest this place over any of the bigger hotels.

Stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel is on he smaller side compared to the other hotels just off the main road of Waikiki. However, the location is great if you want to be at Waikiki and it's near the aquarium and zoo. There is valet parking included with the resort fee. The breakfast included with the resort fee isn't... More

We stayed at Hotel Renew while in Oahu for the night. Although we were only there for one night, our stay was the perfect way to end our trip through Hawaii. The hotel provides special touches such as Aroma diffusers, chilled washcloths and pineapple juice upon check-in. The staff was incredibly friendly and helpful. The ocean view from our room... More

It located just 1/2 block from beach, very short walk. Friendly and helpful staffs. The room is spacious. The hotel charges $25 USD per day for amenities (including breakfast, beach towels, free wifi in room, free coffee/ water, and etc) and also $25 USD per day for valets/ parking. I think it's worth the price due to lack of parking... More

Pros: Good value (Hawaii prices), friendly staff, access to coffee and water, comfortable bed Cons: Need some variation on breakfast (all very sweet) - every day the same; old creaky fans in bedroom, faded and a bit cramped
